Mizzou Links for Monday, March 16

COVID-19 cancels more stuff

Just like yesterday... and the day before... and the day before that... and the day before that...

  • The big NCAA news relates to National Letters of Intent, which cannot be signed during the temporary recruiting dead period.
  • The EYBL youth basketball circuit also hit the bricks today, at least for the time being.

And now for the other Mizzou links!

Usually these get deposited down below... but with the sudden dearth of sports-related news, we’ll be doing things a little differently down there.

  • Sean Williams talked to 2021 RB recruit La’Vell Wright about his recent visit to Missouri... but you’ll need to be a subscriber to read it!
  • One of Missouri’s biggest 2021 targets is off the board... but not to Columbia.
  • Missouri’s SEC Network takeover is scheduled for March 25, which may or may not take place while the world is ending — but hey, might as well put it on your calendars anyway!

More Links:

Generally this is where we deposit the Missouri-related links that don’t fit with the bigger theme. HOWEVER, there are only so many of those to go around these days.

So as long as I’m doing links (Mondays and Tuesdays!) I’ll be posting stuff that’s getting me through this craziness.

  • The Washington Post had an incredibly helpful data and graphic-driven story on social distancing and how it can help keep us all safe over the next few weeks. It’s a short read and has engaging graphs! Check it out!
  • PBS’ website is currently streaming all 18 hours of Ken Burns’ legendary documentary Baseball for free. Check it out if you’re really hankering for some sports in your life!
  • Earlier this month, Hulu (the best streaming service currently available, thank you very much) rolled out FX on Hulu, bringing the greatest collection of modern TV shows to on demand streaming. Personally, I’ve been catching up on Legion (the most original, zany superhero show to ever air) and Archer (FX’s bananas workplace-spy comedy).
  • Westworld is back on HBO! Personally, I couldn’t make it through Season 2, but the new Aaron Paul-centric season looks like it could be promising!
  • We’ll all have more writing time on our hands being forced to stay home every night. If anyone has any fresh #content ideas (Mizzou or non-Mizzou related) you’d like to see on this here website, let us know below!
