The Cuonzo Martin and Michael Porter Jr. eras officially begin tonight at Mizzou

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

What will you be doing tonight at 8 pm CT? Watching basketball, of course. The Cuonzo Martin era begins against Iowa State at Mizzou Arena (or on SEC Network), and it’s time for the top freshman in the country to officially introduce himself.

Season tickets have sold out, the athletic department announced Tuesday. In total, the 2017-18 public season-ticket-sales total of 9,572 is a Mizzou Arena record and an increase over last year’s final total of 5,802, the athletic department said.

Those ticket sales aren’t solely because of Porter, but he understands the importance of succeeding anyway.

“This is the biggest year of my life so far,” he said. “This is my chance to make a mark on history. I can really make a difference in the history at Mizzou. I’m excited.”

It’s been...

  • 483 days since Michael Porter Jr. committed to Washington
  • 365 days since he officially signed with Washington
  • 335 days since Missouri lost the first of 13 games in a row to all but clinch Kim Anderson’s firing
  • 250 days since Anderson was officially fired
  • 240 days since Mizzou hired Martin ... and, almost simultaneously, Washington fired Lorenzo Romar
  • 231 days since Porter got his release from Washington and committed to Mizzou

More than 10 months after one hell of a season finale, the new season is finally here.

Mizzou Football is on a three-game winning streak and has been thrust into the background this week. Uncommon. But there’s still plenty to talk (and read) about on the gridiron.
