Time to Celebrate the Smarties!

111 Mizzou student-athletes were named to the Spring Honor Roll on Thursday afternoon, so let’s take some time to recognize them for their hard work on the field/court/diamond and in the classroom.

To be eligible, they needed to finish the semester with a minimum 3.0 GPA or have a 3.0 cumulative GPA, and play a spring sport: track and field, baseball, softball, tennis and golf seven eligible MU programs were represented on the list.

Leading the way with an outstanding team GPA is women’s golf. WOW.

Numbers-wise, women’s track and field led the other teams with 40, while baseball had 20, men’s track had 18, softball had 16, tennis had 7, women’s golf had 6 and men’s golf had 4. I encourage you to check out the list, as it’s also got their majors listed, and it’s really interesting— not many General Studies or Communications majors among them (what Nate would call the ‘athlete majors’) and a lot of Business majors, which warms my heart as someone who currently works there (and hopefully forever and ever).

Onto the Links!

Football

Steele, in his annual college football preview magazine, picked the Tigers to finish fourth in the SEC East in 2021 behind division champion Georgia, second-place Florida and a resurgent Kentucky team slated at No. 3.

  • Dave Matter was back with a new weekly chat at STL Today. I highly recommend checking it out.. if you’re a subscriber. There’s a lot of info to parse through about football, among other things. I will share this one tidbit, about the revenue difference between Mizzou and the other SEC schools, since this always a hot button issue (Dave’s data came from a USA Today study, by the way):

In terms of overall revenue, Texas A&M leads the pack with over 212 million. Weirdly enough, Alabama is third on this list. Where’s Mizzou? Last (though Vandy, because it’s a private school, doesn’t report their figures) with just over 106 million. What makes the that hole so enormous? Among other things, ticket sales revenue just KILLS the university. I mean… YIKES.

School: Ticket sales, contributions, rights/licensing

Texas A&M: $49 million, $85 million, $67 million

Georgia: $36 million, $52 million, $71 million

Alabama: $39 million, $7 million, $77 million

Missouri: $16 million, $27 million, $55 million

  • Love this guy.
  • RING THE BELL! (this M reminds me way too much of Michigan and left me confused for a minute)

Hoops

  • Junior Kobe Brown is ready to be a leader, according to Nate Marcus’ newest article in the Missourian.
  • Love this. (In case you need help ID’ing these players, this would be former Kickapoo teammates Trevon Brazille and Anton Brookshire)

Other Mizzou Sports

Softball

  • Coach Anderson... I love her. And I think I’m going to need softball season tickets....
  • The Tigers made it official with JuCo All-American Addie Lange, who signed on Thursday. Catching will continue to be quite an asset for the Tigers as they’ll have two top-notch players ready behind the plate.

“Over everything else, the coach matters. Coach Anderson believes in her players, and you can tell her players believe in her,” Lange said in the release. “What Coach Anderson has accomplished over the past three years is nothing short of amazing. Who wouldn’t want to play for her?”

  • Way to go, Vanessa! Can’t wait for you to get here!
