Imagine these signs being made a year ago...
I guess we'll start with a couple of the better MU-NU links from Saturday night...
- The Trib: Tigers unleash swat team on Huskers
- The Missourian: Tigers coming together on, off court
- KC Star: At any speed, Mizzou is tough to beat
- Post-Dispatch: Missouri has another big second half
- Omaha World-Herald: Rushed shots hurt Huskers
Meanwhile, the basketball version of the nagging cough my wife's had for the past week is the "Alabama wants Anderson" rumor. The Trib takes a look. I hate the "[Anderson] stressed that he is focused on coaching this Missouri team but has stopped short of emphatic denial" stuff. Emphatic denials...you mean like the "I don't give a s*** about North Carolina" denial that Roy Williams unleashed...like, two days before he took the UNC job? There's nothing that Anderson could say right now that would prove without a doubt that he's not interested in 'Bama.
That said...I just don't see that he'd be interested in 'Bama. I mean...he grew up in Alabama, but he went to school at Tulsa, then coached at Arkansas and eventually UAB. Sounds to me like he has ties to 'Bama like I have ties to OU. I grew up in Oklahoma...but other than my high school best friend's brother playing for the football team, I simply do not have ties to OU.
And all that said...yeah, Mrs. Anderson says MU is the place. THAT's the kind of emphatic denial I can trust...
To football recruiting, where Rivals.com is tracking down where Mizzou offers have gone so far. Some known offers include Timberland OL Nick Demien, Bethlehem (PA) QB/ATH Anthony Gonzalez, Wichita QB Blake Bell, and of course Liberty WR Marcus Lucas.
Finally, Mizzou Wrestling links!
