Mizzou Links, 1-17-14: Losing at Vandy, getting back on the recruiting road

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Missouri men lose to hot-shooting Vanderbilt, Missouri women lose to hot-shooting LSU, Phil Pressey looks pretty good in his first start, Brad Smith looks good, period, and football recruiting picks up one last time.

1. So ... yeah

Saving my thoughts for the Study Hall post -- why ruin a Links thread with actual Mizzou talk, right?? -- but ... yeah, the Alabama game is pretty much make-or-break, isn't it...
