Mizzou Links, 6-3-14: Mizzou hires Spurs strength guy, Maclin's not hurt

New, 822 comments

...the whole "If we don't get autonomy, we'll take our ball and go to a new Division, but you'll still totally be involved in the NCAA Tournament" threat has always sounded more like a new Division 1A than this "Division IV" thing. Now John's written it so I don't have to.
