Content Overload.

It really seemed like everywhere you looked on Tuesday, it was something else. There’s SO MUCH to cover, so let’s get started, shall we?

I’d certainly be remiss to not start things off with that MIZZOU HOOPS BLOWOUT WIN OVER OLE MISS ON THE ROAD!

Y’all, I’m not sure I could be any more happy about this. Where all my Zo haterz at? I kid... kind of. I even asked Mark Kim to resurrect (get it?) the coffin gif that he posted after the Bama win.

Cannot stop watching. So much joy.

But really. This was pretty astonishing. As Sam wisely said:

As Dave Matter pointed out in his piece on Monday, Mizzou had only won ONCE at The Pavilion since the Tigers joined the SEC (a single win came during Cuonzo’s first season at the helm). That’s so many losses, you guys! SO.MANY.LOSSES.

Amari was actual fire emojis on Tuesday night (click this link for the stats about this), and Boogie was feeling it.

Moving on to the next sport.

Just in Football ALONE, we had this flood of news:

“Coach Peeler has a proven ability to recruit and develop student-athletes,” Drinkwitz said. “Adding Jacob and his coaching experience is an opportunity to strengthen our staff, and utilize our coaching staff better moving forward.”

Peeler arrives in Columbia after two seasons as offensive coordinator at Texas State (2020-21), three seasons at Ole Miss (2017-19) and four seasons at California (2013-16). While in Oxford, he spent two seasons as receivers coach (2017, 2018) and was promoted to co-offensive coordinator working with the receivers prior to the 2019 season.

  • A bunch of brand new baby Tigers beginning their first day of classes? Check.
  • Mixed in with all the transfers who started school today, there were also two new additions (well, technically one is a former player who dipped for Jackson State after six games last year but now is back?) Check.

Love that Dave scoped this out about RBHS alum, Nate Peat, before the announcement. That’s some handiwork.

Then in Softball, we got this beautiful announcement:

The Tigers find themselves among a crap-ton of ranked SEC teams. EIGHT teams from the Southeastern Conference are ranked in the preseason. Missouri sits behind Alabama (2), Florida (5), and Arkansas (8), and ahead of LSU (17), Tennessee (18), Georgia (19), and Kentucky (20). Damn... Here’s the link to the poll if you’d like to see it. Remember, the Tigers are bringing back their ENTIRE roster, with the exception of Cayla Kessinger, who hung up her cleats to focus on her mental health (good for her, I really hope she’s doing well), and have added a great recruiting class. CANNOT WAIT for softball season! Click this link to get your season tickets!

And lastly, we turn to Women’s Hoops.

Tuesday, we learned that our fave girl, Aijha Blackwell, received CO-SEC Player of the Week honors for her ass-kickery against ranked LSU and Georgia. She shares the title with South Carolina’s Aliyah Boston, also a double-double machine.

In that two game span, AB averaged 26.5 points and 15 rebounds. Sweet Jesus. And she now has seven STRAIGHT double-doubles. Remember when she got Covid? She doesn’t either, because it has had seemingly no impact on her statistical output for the Tigers. You can read more about her honor at MUTigers.com.

On to the links! It’s a GREAT day to be a Tiger!


Yesterday at Rock M: IT WAS A LOT

  • COMING UP THIS WEEK: A delightful and fun-filled Study Hall, a T-25 analysis from me & Lauren, a Vandy WBB preview, a WRESTLING DUAL preview from new writer James (follow him @ffjames94 on the twitter), an analytical piece from Matthew J Harris on Trevon Brazile, a film room analysis on the Ole Miss win from Matt W, some recruiting resets from BK.... So yeah, a lot of stuff.
