A Quick History of Missouri

November 16th, 2022 by admin No comments »

The United States acquired Missouri from France as part of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, and the territory was admitted as a state following the Missouri Compromise of 1820. Throughout the pre-Civil War period and during the war, Missourians were sharply divided in their opinions about slavery and in their allegiances, supplying both Union and Confederate forces with troops. The state itself, however, remained in the Union.

Missouri historically played a leading role as a gateway to the West, St. Joseph being the eastern starting point of the Pony Express, while the much-traveled Santa Fe and Oregon trails began in Independence.

Missouri’s economy is highly diversified, and service industries provide more income and jobs than any other segment, and include a growing tourism and travel sector. Wholesale and retail trade, manufacturing, and agriculture also play significant roles in the state’s economy.

Missouri is a leading producer of transportation equipment, including automobile manufacturing and auto parts, beer and beverages, and defense and aerospace technology. Food processing is currently the state’s fastest-growing industry.

Missouri mines produce 90 percent of the nation’s principal (non-recycled) lead supply. Other natural resources include iron ore, zinc, barite, limestone, and timber.

2012 Nebraska Football Predictions: Are the Cornhuskers Overlooked?

April 21st, 2022 by admin No comments »

Last year the Nebraska Cornhuskers were the talk of the town as they moved to the Big Ten for their first year. How things have changed. In less than one-year, the Cornhuskers are flying under the radar and are overlooked and perhaps even disrespected as the 2012 season is about to begin.

The Michigan Wolverines are being labeled a “lock” to win the Big Ten, Urban Meyer is looking to bring Ohio State back to the top of the college football world, and the ugly scene in Penn State continues to dominate headlines. What about the Cornhuskers?

One of the reasons that the Cornhuskers are being disrespected is due to the dismal performance a year ago. Nebraska was predicted to win the Big ten, but they failed miserably and suffered some ugly conference losses, most notably to Northwestern in Lincoln.

However, the oddsmakers are not disrespecting Nebraska, as online sportsbook Just Bet has labeled the Cornhuskers at 3-to-1 to win the Big Ten title, only behind Michigan (2-to-1) and the favorite Wisconsin (1-to-1). When it comes to Legends Divisional Odds, Nebraska is listed at (1.6-to-1) to claim the division, while Michigan (1.2-to-1) is the favorite. Finally the Cornhuskers are a jaw-dropping (33-to-1) to take home the 2013 BCS National Championship.

Offense: Junior Taylor Martinez will get his fair share of criticism, but he is a leader on and off the field and his numbers is not that bad. A year ago he hit 56 percent of his passes for 2,089 yards and 13 touchdowns and ran for another 874 yards and nine more scores. His turnovers need to improve but he can lead this team and will get help from a talented back field.

Senior Rex Burkhead can carry the rock as running back and will have an impressive year. Burkhead is also a talented receiver who in 2011 made 21 catches for 177 yards and two touchdowns. Burkhead will need some help from some of the younger backs to carry the load if Nebraska will succeed.

The Nebraska schedule has some hurdles, like games on the road against Ohio State and Michigan State, but they will host Michigan and that could be for the division title. Although a tough start against Southern Miss and UCLA, could lead to a sluggish start.

Defense: The Cornhuskers need to improve on defense and it helps that they return three seniors on the front line, Eric Martin and Cameron Meredith at the ends and Baker Steinkuhler at tackle. This team always finds a way to compete on the defensive side of the ball and if they can improve at rushing the passer, they could have a tremendous season.

Betting Trend to Watch: The Cornhuskers are 6-1 against the spread (ATS) on the road with rest. When Nebraska travels to play Northwestern they will be well rested and looking for revenge. This could be a good spot to play on Big Red.
