It’s SEC Honor Roll Time!

Mizzou Athletics and SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey announced that Mizzou Athletics placed a record 95 (!) student-athletes on the SEC Honor Roll, which represent 5 sports — football, m/w cross country, volleyball, and soccer — and includes grades from the 2020 spring, summer and fall semesters. This number surpasses the 86 who made the conference’s honor roll last year. Progress! You love to see it!

According to the SEC’s website, some of the criteria for the honor roll includes having a 3.0 GPA or above for the preceding academic year or have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0. They also must be on an athletic scholarship, be a letter winner, and/or be a walk-on for two seasons.

Football led the way with 35 honorees, including fan favorites Tyler Badie, Connor Bazelak, Nick Bolton, and Larry Borom, and that’s just the B’s. Check out the full list of all the athletes on the SEC Honor Roll on MUTigers.com!

Speaking of the importance of educating young people, Cuonzo Martin went on The Jim Rome Show on Tuesday and talked about the difference between being good and great. As always, Coach is a walking quote machine, and this is GREAT.

  • Calum McAndrew welcomed back Men’s Golf with a nice little write up in the Missourian discussing their roster and the spring season, which tees off (get it? haha) Friday in nice, warm maskless (sorry) Florida.
  • Well... this sucks, but is not altogether surprising. Mizzou is hosting the SEC Championships for swimming (yay), but there will be no fans in attendance (boo). As a former area swim coach and a volunteer for this very event previously, that facility is gorgeous and I loved being there.... stupid Covid.
  • Baseball coach, Steve Bieser, joined Matt Michaels and voice of the Tigers Mike Kelly on the Inside Mizzou Podcast. Check it out!

Other Regional Sports News

  • Friend of Dive Cuts and KC Star writer Souichi Terada announced that his last day at the Star is Saturday. We wish him the best of the luck, as he’s been a great edition to the Mizzou beat.
  • Dave Matter of the Post-Dispatch shared a nice tribute to Mizzou Basketball’s Charles Henke, one of the program’s legends, who recently passed away.
  • And in very, very sad news, former KC Star writer, Terez Paylor, passed away suddenly on Tuesday morning. He had just turned 37. Paylor started at the Star after college and built himself up from prep sports writer to the Mizzou beat to Chiefs reporter. He left the Star in 2018 to cover the NFL for Yahoo! Sports. He was a tremendous writer with an exuberant personality. Terez was instrumental in bringing Rock M’s own Brandon Kiley to KC to work in sports radio— be sure to check out this amazing Twitter thread. Here’s some other tributes from his other colleagues. Man, what a sad day.
