Missouri Tigers May Once Again Be One of the Nation’s Top Teams Thanks to Alex Oriakhi’s Transfer

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

It appeared there could be some questions about just where Missouri would stand on the college basketball front next year. The Tigers wrapped up a 30-win season and a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament, but were upset in their first game of the Big Dance. The team was ...

Will the Big 12 Race be Decided by Either the Kansas Jayhawks or the Missouri Tigers?

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

Baylor certainly looked like a favorite to contend for the Big 12 men's basketball championship after cruising to 17 victories in a row out of the gate. However, the Bears lost their second straight game over the weekend, falling at home to Missouri. They've now lost to Kansas and Mizzou, ...

Bill Self: Kansas Basketball and the Big 12 Will Be Just Fine With or Without Missouri

Friday, October 7th, 2011

Since the beginning of this entire wild and crazy mess, all of the chatter surrounding the Big 12 Conference and possible realignment scenarios has been delineated by a strong sense of doom and gloom. Texas A&M was rumored to be heading to the SEC, which in turn might mean that ...

Frank Haith Attempts to Turn Missouri Backlash Into a Positive

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

As the news broke on Sunday night that Missouri was going to hire Frank Haith as its next men's basketball coach, it didn't take long for the backlash to begin. Many fans took to social media outlets trying to figure out who Frank Haith was and how in the world ...

Matt Painter Still Sounds a Little Suspicious on This Whole Missouri Situation

Friday, April 1st, 2011

I'll admit, I haven't listened to enough of Matt Painter, so perhaps this is how he always sounds. But, now that he has tested the waters in considering a move to Missouri, something about the whole thing still smells a little fishy to me -- especially after listening to the ...

Missouri’s Gary Pinkel Pledges to Stay the Course Regarding Program’s Discipline

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

When a college football program suffers from a rash of off-the-field incidents, it's pretty easy for critics to call for wide-sweeping change -- either in personnel or philosophy. Missouri coach Gary Pinkel has been around long enough, and with a clean enough record on and off the field, to probably ...

Can Mizzou Pull Off the Huge Upset Over Texas?

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

The Matchup between #3 Texas and Missouri this weekend is a big game for both teams, but is a must win for Gary Pinkel's Tigers.  Starting the season 0-2 in conference play is not consistent with the way they have played in recent years and with a loss this weekend, it ...

Coach Gary Pinkel’s Revolving Door

Monday, August 10th, 2009

Missouri Head Coach Gary Pinkel has a real problem retaining the services of assistant coaches. His assistant’s keep springing to bigger and better jobs, and Pinkel himself is thrilled that his former employees are so highly sought after for both college and pro openings. The Tigers were the 2008 Big 12 ...

Jeremy Maclin, the Cleveland Browns Newest Wideout, Kind of

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Jeremy Maclin got picked by the Browns. Or, at least, their IT team. As my pals at Waiting for Next Year noticed, the Browns jumped the gun a little bit and listed Maclin on their roster. How awkward. Of course, it's not entirely implausible: the Browns are rumored to be moving ...

Chase Daniels On Doubters, Comparisons, And NFL Workouts

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

What really gets me in sports are scouts, front office types, and media questioning a player's ability strictly because of his height and weight.  This is sports, it isn't a fashion show.  Anyone can perform at a high level regardless of size.  Obviously, there are extremes, Verne Troyer (Mini-Me) isn't ...
