Some coaches will tell you because there's no spring football in Missouri and not enough kids specialize in the sport. Otherwise, I don't have any compelling theories.
I'd counter that saying Missouri playing Kansas State or Oklahoma State or Iowa State is a whole lot more compelling than Missouri playing Lipscomb or Miami-Ohio or any other mid-major they're likely to schedule in place of the Big 12 Challenge.
We'll find out, right? We won't until they both get some time to prove that they can or can't.
Basketball. You get into the hoops tourney and you've got a chance if you get hot at the right time. You can be a six or seven seed and feel like you've got a genuine chance to make the Final Four if things fall right. It's a lot more difficult to get into the college football playoff - though MU has been a win away from playing for the national title twice in the last 10 years.
As I reported at the time, he got into an altercation with a player at the team hotel in Tennessee and Odom sent him home and fired him. That was it. His actions were unacceptable in the head coach's eye. I'm not aware of him coaching anywhere else.
Yes, that should be noted. I suppose there are ways to work around any law, but I doubt they'll ever be separated.
Stewart believed he could keep coaching. Folks around the program and closer to him didn't believe it was his decision, but Norm always took the high road and insisted it was his choice to retire. I talked to Norm for a long time about this very subject for a book that comes out next year. He still has some conflicting views on the topic. He won't come out and say he was pushed out, but he was confident he could keep coaching.
There's sure to be some blowback eventually. I'm not smart enough to predict just how, but the bubble will eventually burst, right?
If he's healthy he can be a steady possession receiver. I don't think he's as explosive as the other guys you mentioned. I think he can be a solid outside receiver who can get first downs. I'm not sure he stretches the field like Mason or Moore, but there's a place for his skills in this offense.
There is one available scholarship for Jontay Porter waiting for him.
Bieser believes Mizzou needs two more wins. They need to beat South Carolina today and then win tomorrow for that to happen.
Las Margaritas. Have the Tacos Pastor.
You're thinking of Daniel Parker from Blue Springs.
Ronnie Suggs from Washington, Mo., will transfer to Mizzou from Bradley as a walk-on. 6-5 guard, averaged less than 2 points last year.
Not a whole lot. He's a decent sized guard but as a walk-on who didn't play much for Bradley I don't expect him to be a big factor.
OK, folks. I've run out of time. We'll do this again next week. Thanks.
