I saw that on Twitter but given this week's more pressing thoughts haven't given it much thought. She committed to Mizzou as an eighth grader. I probably would advise against that kind of decision at that age.
I don't know exactly how many players are in the portal, but if teams still have roster space they can still sign those players to scholarship agreements. Eventually we're going to hit a point in the semester when it's too late to enroll for fall classes. That would essentially be the deadline to sign somewhere. Players had until July 1 to enter the portal.
Yes, nine games will surely be the standard in the SEC at some point - just like it already is in the Big Ten and Pac-12. The SEC might even go to 10 games and all but do away with high-profile nonconference games.
Huh? I was asked where he came from and shared his bio.
Yeah, I'm not really sure that's in my lane. I liked the storytelling and drama of GoT. They lost me a bit on all the dragons.
I think all of those things could be true. Players could stay closer to home where they have more name recognition, specially if they live near major metro areas where they have more commercial opportunities. But I definitely expect the programs with the most committed and passionate fan bases will capitalize the most when it comes to NIL and recruiting. If so, that's not exactly great news for Missouri. MU has devoted fans. It has passionate fans. But not at the same level of most peers in the SEC.
I'm not a huge burger aficionado mostly because if I'm trying out a new restaurant or a popular local joint, I'm steering toward something besides burgers.
I don't know about that. Doug Gillin is 52. I'm not sure he's the bold choice Mizzou seeks. Yes, he hired Drinkwitz. That doesn't mean they're extremely close. But if he's someone Drinkwitz would like to work for again, then I'm confident in saying he'll get a look.
I understand why folks preferred the Big Ten in 2011. Not in 2021.
The way the search unfolded opened some eyes of people who are important at Missouri. And maybe they never quite got over it. It's fair to say they lost faith in the leadership at a time when Mizzou is going to be confronted with so many major challenges. There's a fine line between a hurdle and an opportunity - and in their mind, it takes the right leader to know the difference.
I had to double check to get the order right.
OK, folks. We're running up on four fours. I've got to head out, but we'll do this again next week. We'll have to switch times because Mizzou football players have a media day next Thursday during our usual chat time.
