Badie Wins, Mizzou Football Wins, We All Win

It has become abundantly clear to me that Tyler Badie was on a quest this season to win ALL the All-American honors. Like, every single one. While he hasn’t made the first team in many of them and has been left off of The Action Network, FWAA, and The Athletic’s lists (#disrespect), he was selected to be on the following All-American lists: The Associated Press, Pro Football Focus, The Sporting News, Walter Camp Foundation, and CBS/247 Sports. Am I missing any?

On Thursday, he added CoSIDA Academic All-America honors. This one should come as no surprise to anyone, as we have already heard about Badie’s academic acumen. In case you forgot, he’s already graduated with a degree in sports management and a GPA of 3.83, and he’s currently pursuing a master’s in athletic administration and positive coaching (AKA: Karen’s dream degree)

After an AMAZING National Signing Day, Mizzou Football’s good fortune continued, as starting defensive lineman Trajan Jeffcoat announced via Twitter his intention to remain at Mizzou for his redshirt senior season. You really love to see it.

Oh, and one more thing. Chris Kwiecinski of the Columbia Tribune looked at what kind of swag the team will be getting as part of the Armed Forces Bowl. Besides a beanie (or toboggan, depending upon where you’re from), a Google Chromecast, a commemorative football, and an Action Face figure (figurines that will combine a MU player’s real-life face with a figure doing an action of some kind, according to the article), they’ll also have access to a gift suite to shop for gifts up to a $550 value.

WOW. Merry Christmas, fellas!

  • TILLY was back in action on Thursday evening with the Lakeland Magic, and HOLY CRAP, my guy had a GREAT game. In his 25 minutes off the bench, JT had 20 points on 7-8 shooting, with TEN rebounds, and assist, and two fouls.


  • SOPHIE and LINDSAY CUNNINGHAM will be holding a charity evening before the South Carolina game!
