Fun links today. Lots of good stuff.


The good Doc Saturday does a nice job of describing how we got here. It's always funny to look back on how change has always been constant and always been slow.

  • The Missourian: Mizzou Network to launch in December to showcase MU athletics

    Dubbed the Mizzou Network, it will not be a traditional 24-hour channel. Instead, it will provide mostly on-demand content, according to Andrew Grinch, associate athletics director for strategic communications. Grinch compared the on-demand style to Netflix and other video providers on the Internet.

    Access to the network will be mostly free, but there will be a charge for premium content, which Grinch said could include live streaming of sporting events.

    "Defining premium content, right now, it’s a little premature to do that," Grinch said. "I would say that something like live events would probably fall in that bucket."

    He said that had the network been launched already, the department would have "looked long and hard" at putting the Missouri football team’s upcoming game against Western Illinois on the network, rather than on pay-per-view. He also said there is a possibility to stream a basketball game live in the future.

    Grinch stressed that the network’s programming isn’t fully determined and that the plan is for the network to evolve. Grinch listed possibilities for programming, including coach and player interviews, game highlights, footage from practices and features on coaches, players and teams.

Frank Haith has already been tried and either exonerated or convicted by public perception, and nothing he can say is going to change that, but he was certainly as firm as he's allowed to be below, and that's good to see, I guess.

  • A Firm Denial
    The Trib: Haith: 'I did nothing wrong at the University of Miami'

    "I did nothing wrong at the University of Miami with our program," Haith said.

    Haith declined to discuss his relationship with Shapiro or whether he has been interviewed by the NCAA, citing a gag order from college sports’ governing body. [...]

    "It’s difficult. It is very difficult," he said. "The thing is, this process, it can’t be tried in the media. That’s what the NCAA doesn’t want. But it is very difficult because you have many articles that are written about you and that are challenging your character, and you can’t defend yourself."

Hmm, surprised they went with "Former MU volleyball player" to describe Lindsey Hunter below, and not "Former RPT broadcast partner."
