Javon Pickett enters the transfer portal
The Senior wing has an extra year of eligibility due to a COVID year.
Trevon Brazile enters the transfer portal
The high-upside forward becomes the third Missouri freshman to exit the program, and retaining him will be a priority for a new staff as it settles in.
Bracket Challenge Update: Our staff is failing miserably with one surprise exception
It would seem that March has made mad lads of us all.
Dennis Gates is a lot more in the box hire than you think
There seems to be some unrest about Dennis Gates, but no hire is a good or a bad hire until they’ve had a chance to do the job.
A Second Look: Why Grant McCasland might be right for Mizzou
Maybe everyone — administrators, fans, and a certain online search committee — has been neglecting a fantastic option in a coach that overhauled North Texas.
Coaching Search Bracket: Final Four Results — and an end?
A dead-heat between Matt McMahon and Todd Golden fell apart midway through Friday, and the possibility of Chris Holtmann is basically none. Then came word of an imminent hire.
Matt McMahon is a really, really good basketball coach
The timing may not work out, but Matt McMahon is a really good coach regardless.
Coaching Search Bracket: Final Four
We know why you’re here. You watched Murray State and San Francisco. You know you want Todd Golden or Matt McMahon. Vote away. Oh, and Chris Holtmann faces Thad Matta.
Coaching Search Bracket — Round 2: Power Players and Risk Tolerance Regions
This side of the bracket asked you to deal in hypotheticals, which both proved more attractive than the one actual candidate — Jerome Tang — for Mizzou’s vacancy.
Aidan Shaw re-opens his recruitment
Mizzou’s top rated recruit since the 2017 class is going to look around, and another spot for the roster next season has come open.
Coaching Search Bracket: Dana Altman vs. Chris Holtmann
Dana Altman owns a stellar resumé but is costly. What if there is a successful candidate with an affordable buyout? What if MU could poach Ohio State’s head man?
Coaching Search Bracket: Jerome Tang vs. Thad Matta
For long-tenured assistants like Jerome Tang, the results running their own programs are mixed. That’s not the case for Thad Matta, but five years after drop-foot forced him out Ohio State, any chance of a return seems slim. Which presents less risk?
Coaching Search Bracket — Round 2: Young Bloods and Steady Risers Results
San Francisco’s Todd Golden and Murray State’s Matt McMahon will have a joint audition today in the NCAA Tournament, and meet Friday in our bracket.
Kim English might just be the right move
After just one bumpy season at George Mason, Kim English might still be the right call at Missouri.
Coaching Search Bracket: Darian DeVries vs. Matt McMahon
Darian DeVries’ took over for Niko Medved at Drake, and he does so now in our bracket after three consecutive 20-win seasons at Drake. But is DeVries’ resumé enticing enough to eliminate Murray State’s Matt McMahon?
Coaching Search Bracket: Jeff Linder vs. Todd Golden
Todd Golden’s elevated San Francisco over three seasons, but he didn’t do the heaviest lifting for the Dons. Meanwhile, Jeff Linder’s a rebuild specialist, but will that process — especially recruiting — scale up?
Coaching Search Bracket: Power Players Region Results
Dana Altman coasted against Kevin Willard, but a split decision over Kyle Smith or a mystery candidate required some mediation.
Coaching Search Bracket: Kyle Smith vs. The Field
Kyle Smith’s quietly deployed a Moneyball approach to make over Washington State, arguably the toughest high-major job in the country. Or do you want to bet on an unknown coming out of nowhere?
Coaching Search Bracket: Kevin Willard vs. Dana Altman
Kevin Willard steadily remade Seton Hall into a rugged defensive outfit in the Big East — and did it on a relative shoestring. Dana Altman’s taken Oregon to a Final Four, but is he itching to get back to his Midwest roots?
Coaching Search Bracket: Risk Tolerance Region Results
The response to Jerome Tang was lukewarm, and more of a shunning of Sean Miller. Meanwhile, Chris Mack’s exit rubbed you all so wrong that you opted for a Thad Matta comeback.
Anton Brookshire enters the transfer portal
The freshman guard missed the last 10 games of the season with a wrist injury.
Coaching Search Bracket: Chris Mack vs. Thad Matta
Chris Mack entered buyout life after a midseason separation from Louisville. As for Thad Matta, back issues forced him to step away at Ohio State, but could Missouri be a place for him to step back into coaching?
Coaching Search Bracket: Sean Miller vs. Jerome Tang
Jerome Tang played a crucial role in helping Scott Drew build Baylor but has never run a program. Sean Miller can coach, but the question is whether a school will risk that NCAA penalties keep him from doing so.
Coaching Search Bracket: Steady Risers Region Results
You all liked Niko Medved, but apparently, he still loves Colorado State. And Matt McMahon advanced in our bracket, but he’ll face another potential candidate in the actual NCAA Tournament this week.
Missouri’s best NCAA Tournament runs, ranked
While Mizzou will not make the NCAA Tournament this season, they still have plenty of history in the big dance.
Coaching Search Bracket: Matt McMahon vs. Grant McCasland
Matt McMahon’s the latest in an assembly line of coaches churned out by Murray State, while Grant McCasland’s no-middle defense has rejuvenated a moribund North Texas program.
Coaching Search Bracket: Niko Medved vs. Casey Alexander
Niko Medved’s proven his rebuilding chops at Furman, Drake and Colorado State. Prying Casey Alexander away from Belmont would mean convincing him to leave his alma mater and one of the country’s most consistent mid-majors.
Coaching Search Bracket: Young Bloods Region Results
Wyoming’s Jeff Linder was an overwhelming choice, but the choice of Todd Golden or Kim English proved more difficult. And we tee up the next round of candidates looking for your vote.
Just say no.
Going the retread route can help you find success, but Mizzou should absolutely say no to Sean Miller.
Coaching Search Bracket: Kim English vs. Todd Golden
Kim English only has a season under his belt at George Mason, but his fast rise inspires hope. And out west, Todd Golden’s elevated a San Francisco program he inherited three seasons ago.
