Mizzou News for Wednesday, December 4

On the 4th day of December, the Mizzou Tigers gave to me— confusion, despair, disappointment...

And made me say a whole lotta things that are not suitable for publishing.

This, my friends, was not how I intended to start out my first December post. I decided a few weeks ago that I would make my December links into a play on the 12 Days of Christmas. I thought it would be fun and at least I would have some joyful feelings resulting from the inevitable beatdown of Charleston Southern, but yeah.... about that.

What on Earth is going on with this basketball team that I love so dearly?!? They can’t shoot. They can’t seem to play defense anymore. They turn the ball over at alarming rates. They looked lethargic and slow — I’m feeling the same way these days so I’m well aware of what this looks like — holiday season in retail is exhausting, y’all. And why can seemingly everyone BUT us make threes?

I’m reminded of MIZ_DBH’s gif choice from last week, and as I sat in an nearly empty Mizzou Arena stunned into silence by what I was witnessing, I wondered— is this really the Bad Place? Like, can we really be sure it’s not? Watching this game tonight damn near broke my spirit.

Enough wallowing. It’ll get better. It has to. Onto the links!
