‘Tis the season for a veritable cornucopia of Mizzou Sports news, part 2

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

A new week. A new crop of thank yous.

Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, I’d thought I’d continue my thankfulness thread started last week, and take a few moments to shout out some of the people I’m thankful for this season (and this week) in the Mizzou sports universe. In the first edition of what I’ve decided is my month-long Friday post, I expressed my gratitude for Nick Bolton, Xavier Pinson, Mario McKinney, Jr., Amber Smith, and Elle Brown. Who makes the cut this week? Let’s lean back, kick your feet up, grab a frosty Schlafly Pumpkin Ale and find out who was included. If you want to get involved and let us know which Mizzou players YOU are thankful for this week, leave a comment.

To kick things off, I’m thankful that Mizzou Football is HOME again, the one place they seem to excel at this season (side note: please to not make me regret making that declaration... I beg you)

I’m thankful that Tiger fans, for the most part, seem to be pleased with the basketball team thus far and have faith in Cuonzo Martin. Don’t worry y’all, even if you don’t believe, I have enough faith in him for EVERYONE. By the way, if you haven’t signed up for Fan Pulse, which right now is still also tracking football, you can certainly do so, and we encourage it. Visit this link to sign up!

I’m thankful for Dru Smith, because who wouldn’t be?!? I mean, seriously.

I’m thankful for Josh Taylor, newly named head volleyball coach. He’s done a really great job this year stepping in for the retired Kreklows, and officially removed his “interim” tag today. Congrats, Coach!

Now, on to the links we go.

  • St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Hochman wrote about Mizzou’s “new” Dru in a delightful little piece.
  • The women’s team will travel to Green Bay on Saturday for a 1pm tip-off against a familiar opponent. Looks like it’s only available to stream via ESPN+, but you can always listen in the MU Tigers app.
  • Just a reminder that Mizzou returns home to face off against the Wofford Terriers on Monday. Also, this is just realllllly cool.
