Here are today's Mizzou Links. Sorry they aren't happier.

There's sports, and there's life. We focus most of our time on the former here, and that hasn't been as much fun as normal over the last couple of years. But then you add a discouraging real-life story to the mix, and it almost becomes too much to take.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, and I hope you all got to hug some loved ones and/or find many reasons to give thanks. This has been a tough year, and within the Mizzou universe, it just got even tougher. #RallyForRhyan

KC Star: Former Mizzou tutor tells why she allegedly helped student-athletes cheat

It seems in both tutoring and recruiting, the goal tends to be plausible deniability. "Make sure he/she passes." It's long been easy to assume this is an environment ripe for cheating, and in this environment it only takes one person, for lack of a better term, going rogue. Naturally, the rogue one (see what I did there?) pops up at Mizzou. Regardless, this is almost certainly going to result in some punishment down the line, even if the NCAA cannot prove that anyone higher up than the tutor herself 'knew' this was going on. I'm much more concerned about basketball than football, simply because basketball has been the source of other NCAA violations in recent history. Add enough of those together, and you get pretty far down the "lack of institutional control" path. We'll see.
