Default Ball Valve Question

So I'm going to be buying this cooler from somewhere eventually

http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-6-Day-Ultimate-Xtreme-Cooler/dp/B0009PUQZU

I see Midwest has 12" bazooka tubes as well as these valves

http://www.midwestsupplies.com/weld-b-gone-basic-kettle-conversion-brass-with-1-2-barb.html

I was wondering if this combo would work for this cooler. The valve description mentions using it for a kettle and not a mash tun so I wasn't sure if it would be long enough.

Ya I like that. It's a bit cheaper. I was just worried it wouldn't fit into the cooler and be able to connect to the bazooka tube.

If it won't connect directly, it should be a very simple fix by attaching an adapter to the inside connection.
