Charles Harris, Aarion Penton, and other former Tigers impress at Mizzou’s Pro Day

Charles Harris, Aarion Penton, and other former Tigers impress at Mizzou’s Pro Day

It’s a strange time in the Mizzou universe. This is typically the time of year where we are moving on from basketball and have shifted to spring football landmarks — the beginning of spring practice, the first depth chart, etc. We’re passing those landmarks, and we’re writing about them, but at the moment no one’s really reading those pieces because ... well ... Mizzou fans are addicted to basketball again. Still! We’re passing landmarks! And on Thursday, we passed a pretty big one: Mizzou’s annual pro day. With only one likely high-round draft pick, Pro Day wasn’t quite as...

When Mizzou can commit to the nickelback, the Tigers’ defense can cause chaos

When Mizzou can commit to the nickelback, the Tigers’ defense can cause chaos

This is how I remind you of a possible flourish for the Tigers’ defense. Of all the things I have been over-fascinated with during my four years of following Missouri football...well...we all know that #TightEndPassGame takes an easy first place. But the Missouri defense’s use of the nickelback — an extra defensive back at the second level of the defense rather than another linebacker — takes second. Hiring Brian Odom as an outside linebackers coach makes you think that maybe — just maybe — the Tigers are looking to put more emphasis on linebacker play and send the...

Mizzou Softball still has quite a bit of work to do to keep its postseason hopes alive

With the conclusion of this past weekend's final non-conference tournament of the season for the Missouri Tigers, they have reached the approximate midpoint of their season, marked in part by the first RPI rankings of the season – which is the ranking that I will use throughout this article. It's been a difficult ride so far for the Tigers, but they remain capable of coming out and beating almost anyone in the country on any given night. Let's look at what the Tigers have done so far, then at what they will need to do in the second half to consider this season a success. What Has Been ...

Missouri plays Florida State in the second round of the NCAA Women’s Hoops tourney

Missouri plays Florida State in the second round of the NCAA Women’s Hoops tourney

The Tigers hope to make it to the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 2000. If you missed Friday night’s women’s game between Missouri and South Florida in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, well, you probably have a few more years on your life left than I do. In typical fashion for the year in road games, the Tigers struggled to keep consistent on their shooting. Turnovers and South Florida’s defense caused them issues as well.

Sierra Michaelis leads MU's comeback victory over South Florida | Mu Basketball | columbiatribune.com TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Missouri women’s basketball team was afforded not one but two chances to avoid overtime. The second time was the charm for the Tigers.

What can Damarea Crockett do for an encore?

What can Damarea Crockett do for an encore?

How much higher is the ceiling for Missouri’s sophomore running back? Among the many encouraging signs from the Missouri offense in 2016 -- the stalwart line, gunslingin’ Drew Lock, 1,000-yard receiver J’Mon Moore, jack of all trades Dimetrios Mason — perhaps none were quite so encouraging as Damarea Crockett’s breakout season. The Boise State poachee set Missouri freshman records with 1,062 rush yards and 10 scores on the ground, and he only got stronger as the season went on...before being suspended for the final game of the year after an arrest on suspicion of misdemeanor...

Looking for under the radar local recruits at Missouri’s Junior Day

Looking for under the radar local recruits at Missouri’s Junior Day

Which local recruits might be in line for a Mizzou offer? Last week we updated you on who Missouri’s top local recruiting targets were and where things stood since that event in February that saw all 10 of them visit Columbia on the same weekend. This week I wanted to take a look at some of the other guys in the state of Missouri who aren’t getting the same hype but could be on Tiger’s radar. Not every guy below has a D1 or Power 5 offer, and none of them have a Missouri offer ... yet! But things can change quickly, especially if many of them make it to the Junior day the Tigers are...

All eyes on Porters and Cunninghams as the Mizzou Women begin their NCAA Tourney trek

Here are today’s Mizzou Links. So there’s quite a bit going on in Tallahassee at the moment. First things first: Mizzou Women’s Basketball tips off in its second consecutive NCAA Tournament, battling No. 11 seed USF. Mizzou is back in the NCAA Tournament, clinching back-to-back appearances in the Big Dance for the first time since 1985 and 1986. The Tigers earned a 6-seed in the Stockton (Calif.) bracket and will face No. 11-seed South Florida in Tallahassee, Fla. Tip is set for 4:15 p.m. CT on ESPN2 at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center. The team who advances will face the winner...

Cuonzo Martin “changes the way everyone will look at Mizzou”

Cuonzo Martin “changes the way everyone will look at Mizzou”

With Cuonzo Martin officially on board, is this the right fit for Missouri? We weren’t sure how long it would take for Jim Sterk to find his guy, but apparently his top target from the start was Cuonzo Martin. The Tigers’ last game finished late in the night on Thursday evening. Prior to that time, Sterk had not yet met with any candidates. But he had pinpointed a few top targets who he felt could fit into his vision for what Missouri basketball would be. The man he felt would fit that vision the most was Martin, the 45-year-old coach at Cal. A few days ago, Sterk boarded a flight to...

How’s it going at Mizzou spring practice?

How’s it going at Mizzou spring practice?

Rashad Brandon is showing potential, Nate Brown is running full-speed, and two offensive linemen are out for a little while. Missouri’s basketball coaching search has certainly been a pretty sufficient carrot to chase this March. It has, for worse or probably better, prevented us from devouring every single tiny morsel of information from spring football. For me, personally, it means that links have piled up. I’ve been paying attention, but not nearly as much as normal. So to get our house in order as we wait for the next basketball rumor, let’s check in on what’s happening over at...

Michael Plassmeyer’s emergence has been huge for Mizzou Baseball

Michael Plassmeyer’s emergence has been huge for Mizzou Baseball

The sophomore has gone from innings eater to bona fide No. 2 starter. Mizzou baseball is roaring — sorry, it happened naturally — to start the season, and one young pitcher is playing a bigger role than people are talking about. Steve Bieser’s Tigers are 15-1 and currently have the nation’s longest winning streak, and with two more games until SEC play starts, they’ve already bested last year’s non-conference record by 3 wins. The offense is rolling along, ace Tanner Houck is back in dominant form, and TJ Sikkema continues to be a lights-out bullpen weapon. And yet, one of the...

It’s been 5 long years for Missouri basketball

Feels like 15. On March 10, 2012, Missouri crested. Photo by Jamie Squire/ The 2012 Missouri basketball team was, per Ken Pomeroy’s stats, the seventh-best team in the country. The Tigers had the best offense in the country by far but were held back at times by a tiny rotation and a lack of size. After Ricardo Ratliffe and Steve Moore, the biggest player in the rotation was 6’6, 200-pound Kim English. All year, we knew Missouri had fatal flaws. But through game after game, the Tigers went out of their way to prove they could overcome them. They stretched defenses...

Let’s check in on Missouri’s top local targets. Missouri fans are probably already aware of the many high-profile local athletes Barry Odom’s Tigers are focusing on for the 2018 recruiting cycle. It was a month ago that they hosted a “Junior Day” just for these specific “Top Ten”, you may have seen some of the tweets and images that came out of that event. @Choc_butterfli Missouri’s Top Ten Tigers visiting Columbia in February @Choc_butterfli Barry Odom and Missouri’s Top Ten Tigers Let’s run through who was there,...

R.I.P Mizzou Basketball 2016-17

The run came to an end at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, ending the Kim Anderson era at Missouri. A heartfelt come from behind win over Auburn prolonged it, but ultimately facing a hot shooting Ole Miss team playing with confidence was too much for the spirited Tigers to overcome. The joyous memories of Kevin Puryear’s game winning three to extend Kim Anderson’s tenure for at least another night have faded enough to be confronted with the cold reality of it’s end. The season is over, and Kim Anderson has officially resigned as head coach at the request of the Athletic Director, we...

Charles Harris vs. Mizzou past and edge rushers present

How does the Tigers’ first-round hopeful stack up against other prospects like him? How much do the NFL Combine and other big testing events like Pro Day actually matter? Poll any group of 30 red-blooded American adults and you’ll probably get about 27 different answers. The fact remains, though, that they’re still around and people cover them ad nauseam. SEC Network’s coming to Missouri’s Pro Day on March 23, after all, and guys running around in tights at the Combine took up the better part of sports highlights toward the tail end of last week. The problem with events like...

Missouri has at least 1 more game to play as the basketball coaching search rolls on

Here are today’s Mizzou Links. (Football stuff coming later in the day.) Missouri’s basketball coaching search has obviously already begun, but technically Mizzou still has a coach — Kim Anderson remains on the job until the Tigers’ next loss. That might or might not come tonight when Mizzou and Auburn tip off in the SEC Tournament. Barring an unexpected run through the SEC bracket, Anderson’s final game will take place in Nashville at Bridgestone Arena. His time left on the job will be up to his players. The winner of Wednesday’s 8 p.m. Missouri-Auburn rematch advances to play...

Missouri’s spring depth chart forecasts major battles in the secondary

Quite a few starting jobs are up for grabs on the Tiger defense. Missouri’s 2017 spring practices began on Tuesday, and they began ... with a depth chart! This document won’t be worth the pixels it occupies in a couple of months, but it serves as a nice reference point for evolution and where things end up at the end of spring ball, beginning of fall, et cetera. Let’s walk through where Mizzou is indeed starting out in 2017. Some notes: Jack Lowary starts out ahead of Micah Wilson in the race for backup quarterback. Damarea Crockett and Ish Witter begin spring as...

Report: Missouri signee C.J. Roberts is in wait-and-see mode following Kim Anderson’s dismissal

One constant story line during coaching changes is what happens to players who have already signed to play for the since-departed coach at a given school. Granted, Missouri only landed one signee in December — four-star point guard C.J. Roberts — but he’s pretty good. What is he thinking after this weekend’s dismissal of Kim Anderson? Missouri signee C.J. Roberts' father told ESPN that the four-star guard plans to wait and see who Tigers hire before deciding on next step.— Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) March 6, 2017 That’s about as much as you can ask for at this point in...
