Mizzou lost, but they looked way better than anyone expected them to. That's good for a moral victory, which is a nice baby step toward an actual victory.
Hey, uh, watching a basketball game was kinda fun.
"It’s a learning experience for us," Missouri guard Frankie Hughes said by phone after scoring a game-high 24 points. "Knowing that we’re young, we’ve got to be patient and see how we bounce back in tomorrow’s game. We fought extremely hard, knowing Xavier was a tough team and well coached. We just have to bounce back from it and take this as a positive not a negative."
"You always teach your kids to be aggressive," Missouri coach Kim Anderson said. "I think he (Phillips) was just being aggressive. I’m sure he’d love to take it back, but you know what? He made a lot of great plays to get us to where we were. If it wasn’t for that, it wouldn’t have come down to that play. You know how that goes."

Well alright then.
The basketball team almost beat their top 25 opponent, can the football team go one step further?
"They’re still athletic on all levels," said Missouri offensive coordinator Josh Heupel, who had the same job at Oklahoma two years ago when the Sooners shredded the Vols for 454 yards in a 34-10 win. "They’ve got speed on the back end. They’ve got speed in the middle and speed up front. If you get in third down, third and long, shoot, they make it really hard. They can get after the quarterback. They can do it just rushing four. They can bring pressures, too."
As good as senior quarterback Josh Dobbs has been during a sterling four-year career at Tennessee, he’s never had much luck against Missouri. During three previous meetings, Dobbs has completed 66 of 103 passes for 524 yards (a 5.1-yard average) with one touchdown and three interceptions. He’s only managed 34 carries for 112 yards (a 3.3-yard average) with one touchdown rushing during that span.
Women's basketball couldn't pull off the upset either
Catching up with the rest of the crew
I can't help but think this didn't make for a very conducive environment to studying
Hopefully the smell of The Shack's immaculate buffalo sauce was enough to drown out what I'm sure was a strong musk.
Anyway, while we're on the subject let's check in on J'den.
At this point, I'm not sure anything is out of J'den's reach.
Swimming and Diving is on a roll. A water roll. A wave?
The Mizzou men's and women's swimming and diving teams combined to win 11 events during day one action at the Mizzou Invite Thursday at the Mizzou Aquatic Center. During day one competition, the Tigers set four school records and recorded three NCAA 'A' qualifying times.
Both men's and women's programs sit in first-place after one day of competition. The men have 518 points to lead Drury (221), Wyoming (208.5) and UNLV (145.5), while the women notched 491 points on Thursday to lead Illinois (225), Wyoming (206), Drury (169) and UNLV (96).
Cross Country is running, running. And running, running.
The Tigers return to the national meet after a 12 year hiatus thanks to a first place finish at the NCAA Midwest Regional meet on Nov. 11, its first regional championships since 2004. Four Tigers earned All-Midwest Regional honors, led by junior Karissa Schweizer (Urbandale, Iowa), who won the regional meet for her fourth meet victory of the season. Schweizer was joined on the All-Midwest Regional team by junior Jamie Kempfer (Festus, Mo.), senior Nicole Mello (Columbia, Mo.) and senior Teylar Adelsberger (O'Fallon, Mo.), who finished 5th, 20th and 21st, respectively.
Hooray, competitive exercise!
