Come on down, Travion Ford!

You’re the newest member of the... (cues up Price is Right theme music) insanely complicated hashtag, #Lou21ZouCrew, as well as #NewZou and #LouToTheZou. But seriously, this is awesome.

Rock M twitter was super pumped, as you can imagine. Witness.

Ford’s commitment brings Mizzou up to 27 in the Rivals rankings right now, and that sounds GRRRRRRRRRRRREAT.

Who’s next? Tyler Macon (already committed) and East St. Louis head coach Darren Sunkett hope it’s these two fellas.

The Mizzou Media was all over the commitment. Check out the coverage from everyone here: Dave Matter (St. Louis Post-Dispatch). Josh Helmholdt (Rivals/PowerMizzou). Adam Cole (Columbia Missourian). Souichi Terada (KC Star). Eric Blum (Columbia Tribune). Michael Wayne Bratton (Saturday Down South).

Onto the links we go! Happy Friday!

But first, I just couldn’t resist.

Sam, if you happen to — for some strange reason— decide to read the links today, please don’t fire me. I know this is corny as HELL and one of the most overused gifs/memes ever. And technically, it’s May 1 now as of this posting.. but I write links on Thursdays to post Fridays, and I do what I want, so... :)

Assorted Mizzou Sports News

Interesting/Non-Mizzou News

These are a few of the best sports stories & tidbits I found regarding some goings-on in sports and the world— Enjoy!

  • Mizzou TSF members are invited to a MIZZOOM event with AD Jim Sterk, Coach Drink, and country star David Nail on Saturday evening.
  • As mentioned in my Wednesday links, John Krasinki, host of Some Good News on YouTube , is going to attempt to pull off a graduation ceremony for all 2020 graduates, and it’s happening on YouTube on Sunday. So cool!
  • As a final note, a big of a shameless plug— As a side gig, I work for a start-up that creates custom greeting cards. Basically, you pick the card design— there are like 5 bazillion to choose from— and then tell us what you want us to write on the inside, and we will create the inside of the card for you and mail it and make it look wonderful and like a work of art (my mom says so, at least). So, one of the card designs in the shop is a Mother’s Day card I actually designed, and y’all, I found out Thursday morning that it SOLD OUT. That is SO FREAKING COOL. Anyway, so I’m happy about that and wanted to share it. (and you can check out Punkpost in the Apple store if you want— the first card is free)
