Yesterday was the sixth anniversary of Aaron O'Neal's death. It's amazing reading the quotes in the PowerMizzou column below ... all these players who would become Mizzou heroes a year or two later were just scared, shocked kids. So much has changed in the last six years, but I just love the way Mizzou has kept AO's memory alive. That Zaviar Gooden was the first 'honorary' Linebacker No. 25 and has become an all-conference performer has only helped. We'll be hearing about the magic of the No. 25 jersey for a long time to come.

I know as a blogger I'm legally required to love Mike Leach, but ... I love Mike Leach. Not convinced I'd want him coaching my school, but from afar? Love him.

    PowerMizzou: Peach Jam: Day 1 recap

    STAR WATCH: Missouri's 2011 recruiting class is all but wrapped up, and the coaching staff is now turning its sole focus to 2012 and beyond. At 9 AM Tuesday, it was easy to see who may be the Tigers' top 2012 target. Head coach Frank Haith was in attendance to watch the nation's ninth-ranked player, Rodney Purvis, lead the CP3 All-Stars to a 76-63 come-from-behnd win over the Albany City Rocks.

    Purvis started slow, finishing the first half with just six points as he acted as more of a distributor in CP3's offense. That changed in the second half, however, as Purvis saw his team's three-point lead turn into a six-point deficit with around twelve minutes remaning. Purvis would score five straight points at that point and finished with 17. More importantly, he ended with ten assists -- many of those coming to 2012 four-star power forward Brice Johnson.

I consider myself a huge tennis fan, and I always have been ... but evidently I completely blocked out that 1998 French final linked below. I know everybody hated Hingis for being a bitch and all, but ... holy crap, was this impressive. Also: I still love Steffi Graf.
