Not exactly. MU was short on corners and needed an O-lineman.
OK, folks. I'm going to leave the chat open for a bit then come back in about 45 minutes and get to the rest of your questions. But need to do some interviews here shortly.
I'd be OK with getting rid of divisions. I'd like to see more variety in the schedule from year to year. Yes, I think that could lead to a nine-game SEC schedule, but Nick Saban would have to find some support for a movement he's always supported.
Martin said the staff is still open to adding a 13th scholarship player. No indication of anyone they've targeted seriously for that spot.
Lots of good options. Logboat is my No. 1 choice. Lots of great options there and they're always concocting new beers. If you like ciders, Logboat has opened up a cider brand named Waves. Bur Oak makes some good beers. Rock Bridge Brewing Co. is another. Broadway Brewery has some great beers, too.
I prefer the proposed 12-team model that takes the six best conference champions and then the six best at-large teams. Putting everyone into conferences and only taking two per conference sounds like an ideal structure, but that doesn't necessarily give you the best teams. What if four of the best teams are in the same conference?
Good question. I hope we get to talk to assistant coaches more this year. I learn a lot about the team, the players, the opponents, etc., from talking to the staff. We didn't get that luxury last year.
He recently tweeted that he's returning to junior college for the fall. Maybe Mizzou takes another shot at him after that. Not sure.
That's not really their job. They can certainly talk to the recruits when they visit campus, but they're not allowed to go on the road and evaluate.
Drinkwitz certainly embraces social media more than Odom.
I'm not sure I understand. Has he done enough to understand fans' fears that he'll leave? Well, I'm not aware of any schools that have tried to hire him this offseason, so there hasn't exactly been a market for him since he came to Columbia. Will that change if the Tigers win eight or more games this year? Maybe. It's hard to project the market in June. He's making $4 million a year at an SEC program that in the right year can make the 12-team playoff. In less than a year at MU he convinced the Board of Curators to approve a $31 million indoor practice facility. I don't see the real incentive to leave at this point unless making a couple more million bucks per year is a difference-maker.
Not on the current roster.
Well, if the Cards trade for Gibson or Scherzer it'll be to improve their rotation not shine a favorable light on Mizzou. Gibson seems more plausible at this point.
Her averages are down but she made her first start of the season last night and scored a season-high 16 points. She played a season-high 32 minutes, more than double what she had been averaging. For the season, she's playing 14.5 minutes, averaging 3.9 points and shooting 28.6% from 3.
Yes, I will. I also covered all the games in person last year.
There could be room for one or two more but I don’t think you’re going to see several more additions unless there are some departures
Jeffcoat hit Kyle Trask late in the pocket well after he had thrown his pass. It was it late for sure put a flag wasn’t thrown and Dan Mullen erupted on the sideline. He had every right to be mad but he lost control and chaos ensued. Missouri doesn’t have any natural rivals in the east. At least there’s nobody in the east that considers Missouri an actual rival. There was an opportunity with South Carolina but it hasn’t really developed.
Wilks’ defense uses three cornerbacks, two safeties and two linebackers typically.
Nah, playing an SEC schedule and one other power five opponent is more than good enough to get you in the playoffs if you win enough games.
Yes, those instances are usually more positive than negative but both have happened over the last 20+ years.
OK, folks I have run out of time. We will do this again next week and hopefully not have any technical difficulties. I appreciate your patience
