No, but I want to watch it.
Or Lynn Hardy. Nathan Buntin, Lee Coward, John McIntyre, Jeff Warren. Arthur Johnson, Rickey Paulding. Yes, lots of them.
I can't answer that without talking to Michael, but the obvious answer is job security. Kim was on thin ice last summer and probably headed toward his final season. Cuonzo just got here and is locked in for at least three years.
I'm not going that far. Still too many question marks for me especially on defense and in the kicking game. The schedule is favorable. There's no excuse for the offense not being one of the three best in the league, but it's not like the other teams in the SEC are trying to get worse.
Don't see that happening. He's given no indication that he's seriously looking at Missouri.
With all those sources we should put you on staff.
There is more than one wing on a basketball court. If you have Porter and Knox you figure out how to make it work. Style is dictated by your caliber of talent, and Martin has said that his offense revolves around the style of players he has on the roster. So, Knox is No. 1 because he's the most versatile and talented. He's a perimeter player but can play defense in the post. He can also handle the ball in transition, just like Porter. If Missouri wants all four guys, it really doesn't matter how they rank in terms of fitness - because they want them all to fit.
No, not exactly. But when you have a coaching change there can be a burst of positive news. Don't forget, Kim Anderson signed three four-star players in the months after he got the job at MU. The Damien Nash commitment came shortly after Mizzou hired Pinkel. But this news cycle takes it to another extreme.
I'm David to anyone who knew me pre high school. Dave to everyone else. As for the kickers, Odom wants the competition wide open. He liked how McCann finished the season but there will be a lineup of walk-ons on campus by August to challenge for the job.
Off the top of my head I can't remember if he played or sat out last season at junior college. Whatever he did last year he'll do the opposite this year - as long as things go as planned, which would leave him with three seasons of eligibility at Mizzou.
I think I'll sit out the have-a-fan-over-to-the-house offer, but I appreciate the interest. I went to the best high school in St. Louis, St. Louis U. High, where I was the worst freshman wrestler in MCC history and an average runner on the track team for a few years.
Starting lineups don't matter. They change all the time in a given season. But if we're just playing fantasy GM here, your ball-handlers are Phillips, Geist and Harris; your shooting guards/wing players are Porter, Knox, Barnett, Roberts, VanLeer; your bigs are Puryear, Tilmon, Reed, Smith and Kemp.
Never had it. I'm pretty local to my coffee tastes.
In basketball? Doubtful. Martin is close friends with Paul Lusk at Missouri State and good friends usually don't like coaching against each other. I've already touched on the SLU topic.
Yes, they can appeal for a family hardship but those are harder to obtain - and the NCAA has stopped issuing family hardship waivers for players who want to transfer and play somewhere immediately without sitting out a year. If a player signs an NLI and isn't released by the school, he/she must sit out one academic year before playing somewhere else. But it rarely if ever comes down to that.
It's really really hard to average 30 points a game in college basketball.
Whenever Illinois decides it's time. My guess is the staff will want to meet with him in person to discuss his thoughts before they release him.
He's good. We're done writing our book. Editing stages now.
Honestly, none, unless they see a link through social media.
OK, guys, that's it for today. We'll do this again next week. More Mizzou coverage in the coming days. Thanks for taking part.
