Mizzou Links, 3-6-14: Ross makes Senior Night memorable and the Pingetons fall

Mizzou survives Texas A&M by the thinnest of margins, five football players choose to graduate and leave Mizzou, the 10-second rule dies a fiery death, and the Fightin' Pingetons lose a heart-breaker.

1. That was ... fun?

I'll say this: For those complaining that this team isn't showing enough heart and togetherness, I think last night proved that wrong. This team has infinite problems, but it wants to be good, and it took a whole lot of want to figure out how to come back from 11 down while playing horrible basketball. So there's that.

(And yes, the fact that three freshmen were responsible for a whole lot of the "want" is an exciting thing.) Ross Saves Senior Night For Mizzou, 57-56 Mizzou vs. Texas A&M Post Game Quotes Mizzou - Texas A&M Post-Game Notes
