Justin Britt becomes the ninth former Missouri player to start in the Super Bowl, Katy Perry rides Tigers, the list of potential candidates to replace Mike Alden is long, and Mizzou Wrestling remains undefeated.

What's On

So Katy Perry rode into the Super Bowl halftime show on a Tiger.

Neither here nor there, but she also danced with singing sharks.

She also ... wore a Wii remote strap? On a related note, Katy perry has more or less won me over with her inability to give a damn.

Oh yeah, and Justin Britt played in the Super Bowl, too! Gave a shout out to "LHS-MIZ" in his starting lineup intro.

And while we're at it, lots of other things happened this weekend (not including recruiting, which we'll address in a separate post)...

Alden's press conference

The Trib: Alden's legacy includes a big tree of ADs
The Trib: Alden got the big decisions right
The Trib: MU coaches describe Alden as demanding, caring boss
The Trib: Gary Pinkel and R. Bowen Loftin on Mike Alden
The Trib: Mike Alden talks legacy, future plans, truck stops

Yeah, read to the truck stop story at the end of that link.

Post-Dispatch: Who's Mizzou's next choice for AD?
Post-Dispatch (Bernie): Alden dramatically transformed Mizzou
The Missourian: Mke Alden: 'Faith' drove his decision to depart Missouri athletics department

Dave Matter's "next choice" piece above is pretty good -- potentially worth fighting the increasingly nightmarish Post-Dispatch website (pop-up ad, pop-up ad, auto-play video, and if you're on your phone, why don't we just hop over to the App Store so you can buy something, too!). All I can say is, if Mizzou can somehow sway Chris Del Conte away from TCU, that would be pretty amazing. And amazingly expensive.

Still another month to go :-/
