Mizzou Links, 5-7-14: The NFL Draft nears, and #TeamStubble heads to South Carolina

New, 826 comments

Michael Sam prepares for the NFL Draft, football and basketball recruiting continue, and Mizzou Softball -- with its all-conference performers and "joyless misanthrope" of a coach -- heads to South Carolina for tomorrow's SEC Tournament quarterfinals.

Meanwhile, not everybody enjoys #CoachStubble. I agree (in content, if not in tone) with quite a bit of this -- he is a bit joyless at times, he is completely different from most softball coaches, and he does say things he'll probably regret in the heat of the moment -- but those are basically the reasons I enjoy him. That, and he's a good dude at heart.
