Mizzou Links, 1-7-14: Flipping the switch from football to basketball

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

James Franklin and Henry Josey are Mizzou greats, Mizzou hoops goes to basic training, and it's just about time to flip the switch from football to basketball.

1. There's a switch that we flip...

...that turns the "default" sport for a lot of Rock M's functions from football to basketball. Following last night's, sloppy, frustrating (for three quarters), thrilling, awesome (in the fourth quarter) BCS title game, it's almost officially time to flip the switch.
