Mizzou Links, ¡CINCO DE MAYO!

I hadn't heard of "ROARS" until about 5pm yesterday, but it sounds like it was a pretty fun evening at Mizzou Arena last night, as lots of Mizzou athletes received attention and affirmation as part of the first-annual ROARS Awards.  Some highlighted awards:

  • Coach of the Year: Mike Anderson
  • Male "For the Love of the Game" Award: Beau Brinkley
  • Male Highlight of the Year: Zaire Taylor's Mr. Coffee moment against Kansas
  • Female Highlight of the Year: Kayla Durnil wins the 200m breaststroke at the Big 12's
  • Male Courage Award: Brian Coulter
  • Male Athlete of the Year: Chase Coffman
  • Female Athlete of the Year: Sarah Shire

Good stuff.  The Missourian and Trib have more.

Looks like Mizzou officially got the signed/faxed paperwork on Tyler Stone and John Underwood yesterday.

On Underwood:

A First Team All-American by the NPSAA, Underwood led his team to a pair of national title game appearances by averaging 18 points, 11 rebounds and eight blocked shots per contest for Head Coach Van Whitfield's club. The athletic 190-pound forward was named to the All-Tournament teams at the National Athletic Christian Association Championships in Dayton, Tenn., and the National Christian School Athletic Association Championships in Erie, Pa. He also earned All-Tournament honors at the Nike iS8 Tournament in New York and at the Crossin Memorial Classic in Plymouth, Pa.

On Stone:

A 6-foot-7, 225-pounder, Stone brings a versatile game after starting two seasons for Head Coach Andre Applewhite at Central High School, where he averaged 15 points and eight rebounds as a senior. An All-City and All-Region selection by the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Stone was named the District 16 AAA MVP and is considered a rising standout in the Memphis area after recently turning just 17-years-old.

Ahh, 6'7, 225?  BIG difference between that and 6'7, 210.  So Stone gains 15 pounds and Underwood loses 10.  Steve Walentik has more.

Finally, if our (mostly Utah- and Texas-based) lawmakers get their way, and there's a college football playoff sooner rather than later?  Our friends at Crimson & Cream Machine took a look.
