That’s a really, really fun lineup, you guys. The biggest name I can think of from the last 20 years who isn’t on the list is ... Clarence Gilbert, I guess?
The Carroll & Bowers Alumni Game is this Saturday at Mizzou Arena. Doors open at 11:30, and the game tips off at 1 pm. You can get in with a $5 donation. It will probably be worth your time if you’re in the area.
Which former Mizzou basketball player are you most looking forward to seeing in the alumni game?

- Watch Lists Are Stupid, Unless A Mizzou Player Is On Them: J’Mon Moore is on the Biletnikoff watch list, which is important (yeah, it’s not important at all) since I’ve been comparing his last three games of 2016 to Danario Alexander’s 2009 season. Alexander wasn’t on this stupid watch list and had trouble catching up and getting enough votes to be a finalist, even though he was by far the best receiver in the country. So now when Moore inevitably posts a full season’s worth of numbers, he can make the finals. Hooray.
- Watch Lists Are Stupid, Unless A Mizzou Player Is On Them: Corey Fatony is on the Wuerffel Trophy watch list. What exactly is the Wuerffel Trophy? According to MUtigers.com, it’s “an award honoring college football's top community servant.” Okay, I won’t be snarky about that. (This does give me a segue for talking about this punter’s amazing Heisman campaign website, though.)
- Interesting: Mizzou’s latest over-under win total is 6.5. I believe that’s up from either 5.5 or 6 a few months ago (and a hair below what S&P+ will be projecting).
Latest @BovadaLV O/U win totals for SEC teams: Bama 10.5, LSU 9, Aub 8.5, UGA 8.5, Fla 8, Tenn 7.5, A&M 7, Ark 7, UK 7, Miz 6.5— Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) July 18, 2017
