Football, what?

It’s getting closer and closer to that time of year, y’all. Basketball season. And while I do think Mizzou Football has time to take their season out of the gutter, I’m ready to focus on what brings me the most joy— Missouri Tigers Basketball.

As college hoops insider/robo man Jon Rothstein pointed out on the twitter on Tuesday:

To celebrate the season coming closer, let’s take a look at some fresh hoops social media content, shall we? Josh doesn’t like to share a bunch of social media stuff in his links posts, so I’ve been saving them up. You’re welcome.

To start… I LOVE this graphic. It’s super aesthetically pleasing and shows our brand new team hard at work.

Speaking of hard work, check out some of the rookies:

Freshman Anton Brookshire:

And Trevon Brazile… damn. (from MoKan Elite recruiting coordinator):

And “old head” Javon Pickett, my personal favorite player:

And finally, we got a tip time and tv channel for the Braggin Rights game! CANNOT WAIT!

Dear Mizzou Hoops, if you’re reading this, can you PLEASE announce the times for the other non-con games? Karen needs to get her work schedule set…

On to the Links!

(Drink… to the local media today)

I tried my best, guys. I’m no Photoshop Wizard like Josh

Yesterday at Rock M

  • Bright spot from the weekend? DPJ dancing.


  • Coach Pingeton had the team spend the last weekend working with The Program, which helps programs build better leaders and more cohesive teams. According to their website, they’ve worked with college teams and many teams around professional sports. Pretty cool.
  • Also, wishing the happiest of birthdays to Coach Corn.
  • New commit Aidan Shaw showing off…

  • Joshua Taylor’s squad heads to Baton Rouge to take on LSU tonight at 7pm on the SEC Network. According to, this sounds like it could be a winning matchup for the black & gold Tigers:

Mizzou leads the all-time series over LSU, 13-4.

The two sides met twice last spring, with Mizzou taking a pair of 3-2 decisions inside the Hearnes Center.

Mizzou is currently riding a ten-match winning streak over LSU, dating back to the 2015 campaign. Mizzou has claimed four consecutive wins in matches taking place at LSU.

Mizzou in the Pros

  • Sophie Cunningham and the Phoenix Mercury have a chance to clinch tonight with a win over the Aces. You can watch the game on ESPN at 9pm. Good on the Suns & Lakers to get their game time switched to earlier to accommodate a team who very much deserves to play on their home court. Hopefully, Sophie will be available after getting injured in Game Three to provide her energy off the bench.

As one of my favorite women’s sportswriters, Lindsey Gibbs, said on her podcast Burn it Down, “Sophie Cunningham is an asshole on the court and I love it.” Pretty much.

  • Larry Three-Sticks and Tyree Gillespie completed the jersey swap on Sunday. I never get tired of this… Shared on twitter by another former Tiger, Josh Bledsoe:
  • The Utah Jazz, led by Quin Snyder, Keyon Dooling, and Jordan Clarkson — the Mizzou Trifecta— lost their first preseason game of the season on Monday to the Spurs, 111-85. The Jazz’s Sixth Man of the Year, JC, played 15 minutes and scored 11 points on 4-12 shooting (3-8 from three) with 2 rebounds. Here’s Clarkson and Quin in the Fit Tunnel (this caption is low-key hilarious):
  • DRUUUUUUUUUUUU Smith suited up on Monday evening for his first preseason game as a member of the Miami Heat. In Dru’s 3 minutes off the bench (the Heat won 125-99), he scored 3 points on a three pointer, and had one assist. WAY TO GO, DRU!
  • Lookin good, Tanner! The former Mizzou Tiger’s team, the Red Sox, knocked off the Yankees 6-2 to take the AL Wild Card game.
