Mizzou Links, 1-17-14: Losing at Vandy, getting back on the recruiting road

New, 968 comments

Missouri men lose to hot-shooting Vanderbilt, Missouri women lose to hot-shooting LSU, Phil Pressey looks pretty good in his first start, Brad Smith looks good, period, and football recruiting picks up one last time.
