Was there a basketball game last night?

FOOTBALL!!

  • CFN.com: 2009 CFN All-Freshman Defensive Team
    DE Aldon Smith, Missouri – Although it’s early, Aldon appears ready to be the next great Smith to rush the passer in Columbia, joining Justin and Brian, who starred for the Tigers within the last decade. A relative unknown before the season began, he’s erupted for 59 tackles, 18.5 tackles for loss, 11 sacks, and five pass break ups.
  • The Trib (Dave Matter): Gabbert drops pledge to Huskers
    PowerMizzou: Pre-visit 2010 hot board
    Double Extra Point: Tyler Gabbert Decommits from Nebraska
    PowerMizzou: Gabbert set to visit
    PowerMizzou: Tigers in on the nation's elite
    PowerMizzou (Gabe): Powered Up: The sudden change
    It has long been hypothesized that you have to wait two full years for success on the field to translate to a breakout recruiting cycle. Now, that doesn't hold true for teams that are good year in and year out. Traditional powers like Oklahoma will easily survive an off-year like 2009. But for a team that has not traditionally been among the nation's better teams-like Missouri before 2007-you need to sustain success for a while before it bears fruit in recruiting. We always thought that, but this year is proving it true.

    Missouri has now won eight games in the regular season for four consecutive seasons. There are fewer than 15 teams in college football who can say that. And now that they've done it with two different quarterbacks, with different players every single position (not one player who will start the Texas Bowl was a starter for the 2006 Sun Bowl), Missouri has proven it can sustain success. Recruits are taking notice. It didn't happen as quickly as some fans would like, but it has happened.

We've said it before, and we'll say it again: if you have EVER thought about giving PowerMizzou a shot, December and January are the time to take the plunge.  Great info every day, and lots of detail about the next two weekends, which are becoming two of the bigger recruiting weekends Mizzou has ever had.
