  • KBIA Sports Extra: For Mizzou fans, Justin Safford a model of consistency

    Though his play has at times been irregular, a throng of black and gold clad Mizzou fans, students and families alike, await his arrival patiently after home games with hooded sweatshirts, sneakers and other memorabilia primed for autographs.

    "You see the crowds we’re starting to get here, you know, it’s the support everyone gives us night in and night out. I feel like we owe it to them as players to sign for them," Safford said.

    Safford has built a reputation for perennial post-game appearances beginning in that first year when a rebuilding Mizzou basketball team struggled to .500 at home. Fan loyalty and the reciprocal player outreach, as well as the 2010-2011 team’s flawless non-conference home record, means more fans stay late and more players make the effort to connect. But the die-hards have always been there.

    "They’ve always been pretty loyal. My freshman year we went through some tough times, that’s when we were 16-16, but you still had those loyal fans who stuck around, came to the games, and waited around even then for autographs. As things went better, they stuck with us," Safford said.
