A Whole Lotta Randomness

Welcome, dear readers, to another Links post where Karen isn’t really sure what to focus on. There’s just a whole lotta... stuff out there.

First up, if this isn’t an amazing recruiting pitch, I don’t know what is.

Next, Gabe DeArmond of PowerMizzou graded the year in Mizzou’s sports, and the big sports’ results (football, mens/womens hoops)? YIKES. Big yikes.

Also on the agenda, the Missourian Staff did a TERRIFIC job getting updates from all of Mizzou’s Olympic sports hopefuls— Dom Bradley, J’den Cox, and Queen Karissa. Be sure to check out the links below to the articles.

And finally, on a super weird hoops note, WatchStadium basketball analyst Jeff Goodman asked ALL D-1 coaches what they were watching while stuck at home. 337 responded — including our very own Cuonzo Martin, who had excellent choices (I’m not surprised).

Some thoughts: Big fan of Tubby Smith’s choices. Earl Grant’s tv show is embarrassing (and that’s coming from someone who watches the Bachelor). Of course Rick Pitino isn’t talking to the media and answering this survey— he’s probably out doing morally corrupt things. Muss, I watch Empire too but that show hasn’t been good in years. Jerry Stackhouse and Mike Anderson are too good for this survey, apparently. Given that Bruce Pearl made an appearance on a reality show this season because his assistant coach’s daughter was on it, you’d think it would get a shout out, but nope. You could close your eyes and randomly point to a coach, and chances are, their favorite tv show is Seinfeld and/or their favorite movie is A Few Good Men. Oh, and choosing Sportscenter as your favorite tv show is super lame (again, coming from someone who willingly watches The Bachelor franchise).

Anyway, was that random enough for you? Onto the links we go. Oh, and Happy Friday.
