Mizzou Links, 3-31-14: T.J. Moe goes on Up, and Softball takes a big series

The Beef

T.J. Moe talked about unions on Up, Softball and Baseball both took big series against ranked teams, and the Mizzou athletic department made some money this year.

1. Hey, T.J.

Man, T.J. went out of his way to make sure Missouri looked good. Impressive.

KC Star: Missouri reports athletic surplus for first time since 2009 fiscal year

During its first year in the SEC, Missouri received $21.1 million, which accounts for most — but not all — of the $25.6 million revenue boost.

Tickets sales and contributions spiked in 2013, including an increase of $3.6 million for football ticket sales. [...]

The Tigers’ athletic department reported a $6 million surplus after declaring $70.3 million in operating expenses. It’s the first year since 2009 that Missouri, which reported a $16.3 million deficit in 2012 without its conference revenue, reported an operating surplus.
