On This Date: Norm Stewart made Mizzou coaching debut in 1967. @mizzou_sports @mizzou2sec @mizzoubuzz @missouribuzztap collegehoopedia.com/blog/date-memo…— College Hoopedia (@CollegeHoopedia) December 2, 2012
Forty-five years ago today, Norm Stewart's career as Missouri's head basketball coach began with a win over, of all teams, Arkansas. Mizzou would go 10-16 that first season. The Tigers would do quite a bit better (to say the least) in future seasons.
(Hey, now's a pretty good time to mention that our very own Michael Atchison's True Sons: A Century of Missouri Basketball makes for one heck of a stocking stuffer. It has, um, a couple of Norm-related tidbits.)
