Mizzou needs a new practice facility, and Drink will do whatever it takes to get it

I know y’all have heard the news. That the Board of Curators are approving a new football practice facility to be built because it needs a full-size field, among other things, and with ALL THE WINNING we’re doing, people want Mizzou to have nice things. To get said practice facility, though, Mizzou is going to need some money from their boosters.

On Drinkwitz’s Tiger Talk on Thursday, he made a rather funny statement, hence my strange headline. According to the KC Star’s Souichi Terada, Drink has volunteered to help by... selling cookies.

Now that I would LOVE to see. So if you happen to see Drink at your front door (wearing a mask, obviously), asking if you’d like to buy some cookies, please help the guy out.

Moving on, VOTE FOR THE THICCER! 13 votes?!? I’m astonished. He deserves our love and adoration. (side note: if you go to the poll now, he has considerably more, but still... vote)

And finally, in Matter’s chat over at STL Today, he asked readers to vote on what they would rather see this weekend, a win vs Georgia or a win vs Illini. My answer was as expected— basketball. But what’s yours? His results were something annoying like 70 FB /30 BB...


Which win would you rather see on Saturday, assuming you can only have ONE?

Watson is almost exclusively a catch-and-shoot shooter who couldn’t catch and shoot last year. The coaches like him. By all accounts, a great team player. But for now he’s the 10th man on a team that’s only going nine deep. There was some thought from this offseason on the staff that he might even redshirt this year, but when the NCAA ruled that this season doesn’t count toward eligibility for all winter athletes there became no sense in redshirting anyone.

  • Rock M writer, Aaron Dryden, shared this little tidbit about why Mizzou-SLU isn’t happening (via Matter’s chat):
