Welcome back to another brand new episode of Dive Cuts with Sam Snelling and Matthew Harris. As expected, Mizzou only played one game last week, but the sad part is that Mizzou went 0-1 in said week and now the sit outside of the Top 25.

As it stands, Mizzou is still sitting pretty for the Big Dance and barring something unforeseen, they will make the Tournament regardless. But what’s the ceiling when it comes to seeds and how does this relate to preseason goals and expectations?

Sam and Matt also preview the matchups against Florida and LSU this week. While LSU is the tougher team on the list Mizzou needed to reschedule, it offers the most benefit for the Tigers so it’s good news! Let’s dive in.

Episode Breakdown:

:15 - 13:30: Welcome back and this is episode 21! Daylight can be seen all around and that goes for the Mizzou Basketball season as well. The SEC grind is coming to a close and that should be good news all around. The SEC being a grind and weird is a good way to describe the league.

13:31 - 26:00: As said regular season comes to a close, Mizzou has scheduled a makeup game with LSU. Some fans wanted Vandy or A&M given recent form, but LSU is actually the team you wanted to reschedule for a few reasons.

26:01 - 55:00: Part of the journey is the end. That’s what it comes down to for the Mizzou Regular season. The end goal has always been get to the Tournament and win a game. Expectations changed throughout the season, but that is what the goal before the season started. Let’s talk about that as well as previewing Florida and LSU.

55:01 - 60:00: Let’s get a 2-0 finish, huh? That would be fun heading into the SEC Tournament! We shall see, but it’s possible and would be nice for momentum moving into the madness in March.

60:01 - END: Final thoughts and a shoutout to Karen who does so much for Rock M Nation. Back in the days of no sports, this turned into the cocktail hour with tons of bourbon talk. Karen requested some beer talk and before we get out of here, that’s something we are going to get! So, listen up and we will see you next week.
