The NOSTALGIA of Hate Week... Beat kU @MizzouMonster12 @philpressey @Englishscope24 @JarrettTSutton— Laurence Bowers (@LBowers_21) December 8, 2022
2012 was HISTORICAL... BUT, History Books are always meant to be re-written ♂️ https://t.co/A2Rth1ZRUP
At 9-0, Mizzou is still one of 10 undefeated teams remaining. A map view:
To get you ready for Saturday, the first “Tiger Talk” of the Dennis Gates era happened yesterday at Shiloh Bar. Karen Steger was in attendance. Some pics in this thread.
From Mizzou Sports Properties:
During Tiger Talk, Dennis Gates had a really good film breakdown of the Wichita State game with Mike Kelly.
I cannot express how cool this is, you guys. HCDG just went over film from Wichita State and it was INCREDIBLE. Made sure to film it for my @RockMNation crew— Karen S (@karensteger) December 8, 2022
In case if you missed the first “Tiger Talk” of the Dennis Gates era, you can listen to the replay here on Inside Mizzou Athletics Podcast. Lots of fascinating stuff on Dickey Nutt’s coaching career as well.

- Whiteboard Wednesdays with Dennis Gates!
We call this drill “2 versus 2 reads”. This is a great way to work on decision making in advantage situations while also getting some shooting reps. The offensive player has to read the help defender and decide to score or kick. #MIZ #WhiteboardWednesday pic.twitter.com/e1NhTlurG9— Dennis Gates (@coachdgates) December 7, 2022
