He rarely, if ever saw the field. How do we know he wanted to stick around and go through all the practices and meetings and never play on Saturdays? Great teams don't have fifth-year seniors who never play. That's the reality of college football.
If you haven't noticed, Mizzou athletics isn't exactly swimming in cash right now. They're losing staff and not replacing them because of a budget deficit. And do we know that Sean wants to end his pro career, move to Missouri and wear a suit to work?
Thanks for subscribing. (Did I do that right?)
I asked her several questions about what happened with the doubleheader. I gave her a chance to admit the schedule change helped their record for the postseason. She gave me her answers and repeated them with each question. I wrote the story, sharing quotes from both sides. I don't believe any other news outlet published anything from Mizzou on the topic. It was a news story, not an opinion piece. She wasn't let off the hook.
Thanks, Mike. Fayetteville is an underrated college town. Enjoy visiting there.
I wouldn't count on that.
That's a pretty broad question. I would say things are trending up in the two revenue sports coming off winning seasons and postseason play, and when things are good with football and men's hoops, the overall health of your department is good. Most of the non-revenue sports are doing well, which is good for morale and appearances more so than finances, but there is a sense of stability in the two main sports - at least compared to some wobbly recent years. And for the most part I think Sterk is settled in and has a handle on the department. There have been some bumps along the way, and a more nationally relevant football program will help pay the bills and erase that deficit, but for the most part, things are on the upswing from my view.
Mizzou returns Geist in the backcourt and adds a point guard (Pinson) and three wing players (Watson, Santos, Pickett), who can play a number of positions based on what kind of lineup Martin wants on the floor. Tilmon, Puryear, Smith and Nikko return for the four and five positions. That's nine players with three sitting out (Smith, Smith and VanLeer, at least for the first half of the season, as of now). That leaves one open scholarship. If Martin doesn't want to use that final scholarship, he also has Suggs on the bench as a walk-on. He could get some minutes if they need to go deeper off the bench.
Nah. I'm not here to spread rumors. I wouldn't expect Camp Porter to share much with Mizzou writers. We're old news. The NBA media will be the ones reporting on Michael from now on.
I would be surprised if he comes back to school. That feeling is shared by those much closer to the situation.
On that note, that's all from me today. Been a crummy 24 hours for me and my family and for all but one of you I appreciate the distraction from real life for the last two hours.
