Well THAT was a fun night (still ongoing) of thunder...
It's probably just the homer in me, but it drives me crazy when headlines don't include "doesn't sign with agent" or "could change his mind" in situations like Jabari Brown's here. Then again, look at the MUtigers.com headline, I guess...

"Kids are a little bit different now. We’ve adjusted a little bit. Society-wise, family-wise, kids constantly change, about every decade, a little bit. It changes a little bit of our teaching and how we deal with them. I think that’s really important that we do that. I’m dancing on national TV, we’re singing songs before practices, we’re telling jokes. There’s been a lot of studies on that, though. Kids nowadays, it relaxes them and kind of stimulates them as far as focus is concerned. A lot of things have changed in terms of that.
"But still it’s about discipline, attention to detail, commitment, being a great team player. It’s still about collectively trusting each other. Those things really never change. I think we do a lot better job now than when you played of communicating and teaching kids these things. They’re proud Missouri Tigers. There’s responsibility around here now. When you walk in here, you’re expected to win. You’re expected to compete for championships. Those things I don’t think will ever change."
Oh, and about that dance after the Cotton Bowl win?
"You’ve got 126 players, you’ve got a lot of opinions," Pinkel said. "Would I have done that five years ago? No. There’s not in a million years I would have done that. But you change. You grow. Those are all great things. I love being around my players.""
