What about playing against the higher competition in the SEC? I made my commitment before they came to the SEC. When I heard that, I was fine with that. the reason I wanted to play for the Big 12 because that was a great conference and the reason I chose Mizzou is because its close to home. And now that they're going to the SEC its a better conference and I'm going to be playing against better opponents and its just a great opportunity for me to get better.
What do you say to people when they ask how you could turn down all that money? I tell them that I believe in myself and in what I'm doing and what Missouri's going to do for me, and I'm going to walk away with a lot more money than that in three years
Can we safely say there's a zero per cent chance a surprise is going to come up before the deadline? Is it a done deal? Done deal
Mizzou (33-23) will continue pool play on Friday, taking on No. 7 seed Oklahoma at 3 p.m.
"The Redhawks got a quality start out of RHP Doug Mathis, who surrendered two runs on six hits — all singles — and a walk, fanning four in six innings of work. The 6′5″ University of Missouri alum was very efficient, getting through six frames with 79 pitches (a Roy Halladayesque 13.16 pitches per inning), 51 of which (65%) were strikes."
"7. Cincinnati -- Aaron Crow, RHP, Missouri
The Reds have been linked to Casey Kelly because his father coaches in their organization and is friends with their scouting director, but they are more likely to go for college pitching, especially if Crow and/or Matusz falls here, which would have to feel like Christmas in June."
