Mizzou Football Links
FIrst things first: here's your Mizzou/McNeese State PPV Information.
For the first time Mizzou pay-per-view contests will be available in High Definition on participating providers. Suggested retail price for each game is $39.95. The telecasts will be available on specially designated pay-per-view channels and will not preempt FSN's regularly scheduled programming
Mizzou's Sept. 18 home game vs. San Diego State will also be televised via pay-per-view. The McNeese State and San Diego State games are being televised on pay-per-view because they were not selected for over-the-air broadcast or cable television coverage. Mizzou and FOX Sports Net (FSN) are working together to make the games available on a pay-per-view basis, giving fans an option to watch games they otherwise wouldn't be able to see on television. FSN's pay-per-view division will produce and distribute the telecasts.
For the McNeese State game Dan McLaughlin will call the play-by-play alongside former NFL All-Pro defensive lineman D'Marco Farr. Todd Donoho will serve as sideline reporter.
PowerMizzou: At Mizzou, patience paid off
In March of 2006, I sat in a hallway outside a Board of Curators meeting at Mizzou. While Mike Alden was hoping to announce a new basketball coach later that Sunday, the University's leaders were debating whether or not Alden would have a job by the time Mike Anderson's press conference began (and if he didn't, it's hard to imagine there would have been a press conference). ...
But Alden survived. He introduced Mike Anderson about an hour later. Over the last two seasons, Anderson has won more games than all but ten programs in America, has taken Missouri to the NCAA Tournament twice, won the Big 12 Tournament and had the program within a couple of unlucky bounces of the first final four in school history. The football program has won the Big 12 North twice, brought home trophies from the Cotton and Alamo Bowls, and come within a half of playing for a national title. As a cherry on top, the baseball program reached heights it hadn't seen in half a century, the softball team played in back-to-back Women's College World Series, and the royal family of Tiger wrestling produced two individual national champions.
Perhaps it all would have happened had Alden been fired. Maybe someone else would have come in, stood by Pinkel, hired Anderson and Missouri would find itself in the exact same position it does today. Who knows?
But few can debate that the last three years have marked the high-water mark in Mizzou history when you consider both major sports. Both programs have consistently been in, or on the edge of, the national rankings. Both are among the top 20 schools in the country in total wins. Neither has had a sniff of NCAA impropriety. Both have young rosters that give fans hope that the best may be yet to come.

Also: a friend of Rock M Nation has written a children's book called The Pride of Columbia:
Just in time for football season--The Pride of Columbia, a book about a young Tiger fan living the Mizzou dream and winning his own rivalry game. Written on a young reader level, but has campus illustrations and an MU theme that Mizzou fans of all ages will enjoy! It's available now on-line and at many area bookstores.
