There is no quick route back from this either. Mizzou could get rid of Kim Anderson and hire Gregg Marshall, and unless he pulled off an immediate, miraculous turnaround, Mizzou would still be only drawing probably 8,000 this time next year instead of 6,000 (or 5,000).

Mizzou and Mississippi State tip off at 7:30! Be there!
