Mizzou Hoops’ Schedule continues to grow
Happy Monday, y’all. Were you able to survive the bye week? I gotta say, it felt like an eternity, especially with all the other good football going around. Mizzou may not have much of a shot of picking up its third win this Saturday, but I am excited to see them back in action.
While we wait for football to pick back up, however, we do have more basketball news! We’ve been covering Mizzou’s brand-spanking new schedule that is, according the school, still currently under construction.
Specifically, Mizzou has been through some rough patches trying to get an MTE (multi-team event) scheduled for the 2020-2021 season, but it appears there may be another opportunity presenting itself...
College hoops scheduling continues to evolve: Missouri and Oregon have plans to play each other on Dec. 3 at Mohegan Sun, sources told CBS Sports. Both schools will play at least two teams, and potentially three, beginning Dec. 2 in what’s been dubbed "Bubbleville."— Matt Norlander (@MattNorlander) November 8, 2020
Mizzou and Oregon have been mentioned in the same MTE circles for a while now, so it makes sense that they would break off and form their own little thing. Getting Oregon on the schedule would also help the team’s chances of building an NCAA tournament resume, which Matt discussed in his quick hitter after the schedule was announced last week.
It’ll be a grind though, and the numbers bear it out. Mizzou’s conference schedule was predicted by Ken Pomeroy, who released some projections for the Tigers’ conference slate.
As Matt pointed out later on Twitter, that’s likely NIT territory
We’re still not exactly sure how the whole of the schedule will shake out, but it shouldn’t be too long. After all, we’re only weeks away from the season starting and they have to have something put together by then, right?

- Here’s your weekly, “Mizzou in the NFL,” recap.
— It was a tough day for Drew Lock and the Broncos... but mostly for Lock. Despite totaling three touchdowns and 360 total yards of offense, Lock took nine hits, including one from former teammate Charles Harris.
Albert O. also logged the first injury of his NFL career.

Showing good leadership after the game, Lock chose not to criticize or even hint at criticizing his offensive line, which probably heard plenty from Denver coaches.
— No official stats, but Yasir Durant did get some snaps in due to injury in the Chief’s win over the Panthers.

- As the Tigers get back in the swing of game week, Dave Matter chose to reflect on the first half of 2020, including the roller coaster of emotions that was this past month.
