Mizzou Softball: Weather and Lack of Offensive Consistency Cost Tigers

Switzy and I take a look back at a weather-shortened weekend and look ahead to the first conference weekend of the season The Beef: Not a great weekend for the Tigers, as the weather takes two games away from them, the pitching was not sharp, taking another (and almost a second game) away from them, and an injury of some sort took Taylor Gadbois out of the starting lineup for the last two games of the weekend.  All told, it means the Tigers came through the weekend 2-1, falling to #23 Notre Dame (despite a late rally) 3-2 before knocking off Penn State 11-7 (in eight innings) where they...

Mizzou Links: Tigers win second straight game at home

Thanks to Keith Shamburger, Missouri finishes its home basketball slate with two straight wins. Plus: the SEC women's basketball tournament begins today, and the MAC wrestling championships begin on Saturday. What's On Gee, I wonder.

The Last Tiger v Tiger action of the year... (╯︵╰,)

You haven't even read it yet, Bruce! While it's too bad Mizzou's winning streak only lasted for one game, it is nicer to be typing here that Mizzou is not coming off a 14th straight loss, and only one straight loss, so PROGRESS! Auburn comes to Columbia for a rematch of the Tigers second conference game of the season where they were beaten and bruised in the previous matchup. Presenting the Auburn Tigers location: Auburn, Alabama By HHKB Chris: As I did with the previous second previews, we're going to take a closer look at Auburn the university and Alabama the state as it lives and...

Mizzou Wrestling: MAC Preview

With the MAC's coming up this weekend in Columbia, we take a look at how we expect the Tigers will fair. And when I say "we", I mean more than BST and myself. The Beef: Before we start, I would like to welcome shaffe to our conversation.  He’s become a big part of the information we’ve been able to provide in the past couple of weeks, so we thought it would be nice to give him a shot at the big time.  And by big time, I mean a chance to immediately sound smarter than BST. So gents, the MAC’s are coming up this weekend in Como (Hearnes Center, Sat-Sun). In our brief history within...

Mizzou Links: Nickelbacks, Teki, and the silliness of the freshman eligibility debate

Mizzou spring football previews talk nickelbacks and tight ends, Teki Gill-Caesar keeps plugging away, and if freshmen were deemed ineligible, how exactly would Mizzou have fielded a basketball team this year? Hello! I'm Bill C.! You might remember me from previous Mizzou Links posts and nerd stuff! I'm back after a trip to lovely, exotic, not-at-all-snowy Boston, Mass. You should visit there some time!

NCAA Tournament bracket projections, March 2: Rock-M-Tology

Under two weeks to go... Who's moving up? UConn (17-11) - The Huskies aren't in the field yet, but beating SMU on Sunday got them a lot closer. They're 18-12, 11-7 in the AAC, and they've got wins over Cincinnati and Dayton (and, yes, losses to Houston and Yale). Beat Memphis and Temple to finish the season and win a couple of AAC Tournament games, and they might sneak in. And you probably don't want any part of them if they make it. Wichita State (26-3) - I said the Shockers were maybe a bit overrated, and then they went out and smoked Northern Iowa at home to finish the regular season....

A Game of Numbers: Georgia

And now we're back to the bad times. Sam covered this all pretty thoroughly in Study Hall, and I think we're all getting pretty tired of talking about the same things over and over again, so I'm going to fight my verbose nature and try to keep this one short.  It's mostly bad, but I'll throw the gifs of a few good things throughout to break up the sadness.  On to the numbers. 100 This team needs about 100 pounds in muscle distributed among 5 freshmen and 1 sophomore.  Against Georgia, as against many other teams this season, they just could not match up with the opposing players...

Study Hall: Georgia 68, Missouri 44

Blech. Also, this can be your live thread/misery commiseration. Your Trifecta: Gant-Wright-Shamburger.

Saturday afternoon thread: let it snow!

Never mind this morning, what's on tap for the rest of your day? Well, for those of you who partied too hard last night, and just woke up, congratulations!!  You missed nothing.  For the rest of us, let's put (our) basketball aside until Study Hall.  The baseball team was in action, plus some actually watchable hoops are yet to come.  What else can one do, at least for those of us in the Midwest, as it's now our turn to deal with the latest "insert NWS endorsed name" snowstorm?

Mizzou Wrestling: RPI & Allotments

Beef So BST, the NCAA made the announcement late yesterday afternoon with their final RPI rankings and conference allocations for the NCAA Tournament, which can be found here (http://www.ncaa.com/news/wrestling/article/2015-02-26/ncaa-announces-qualifier-allocations-2015-di-wrestling) For the uninitiated, the RPI rankings are one of the factors which will help determine seeding at the NCAA’s in a few weeks, and the allocations are what will determine (most) of who qualifies. Because wrestling conferences are a bit different in their makeup (from the P-5 conference model) and because some...

SEC Hoops Power Rankings... Mine v10

Each week, our own HHKB Chris has done a great job of setting up and compiling the SEC Basketball Power Rankings. Each week, I participate with my own take. I thought it would be a good idea to show you my ballot each week so you can see what I'm thinking when I submit my picks. I have yet to look at the previous week's rankings when considering where to slot the teams, instead I look at the record to date, wins, losses, KenPom, Sagarin and BPI. With only three games remaining second place is still there for the taking as Arkansas has to go to Kentucky, South Carolina and finish with LSU at...

SEC Power Rankings Week 14

After what had been a quiet couple weeks in our SEC Power Rankings, we got a bit of a shakeup this week with movement from the top to the middle bottom. Really, it's what makes the SEC so interesting, can it destroy it's March chances before March rolls around? For some time now we've wondered if the SEC would continue to show well and maintain around 6 teams in most bracketologists minds, could the conference heavyweights take care of the little guys while playing good competitive games with each other so as not to get a bad loss on their resume? The answer as of now, a few days from...
