Congrats ROAR winners!

Happy day-after-the-ROARs everyone! Oh you don’t know what the ROARs are? Let me describe it to you...

The ROARs are kind of like a kid’s birthday party, and you go, and there’s really nothing for you to do there, but the kid’s having a really good time, so you’re, you’re kinda there, that’s...that’s kinda what it’s like.

But, you know, we still enjoy them because why not give our Mizzou faves some additional awards? Let’s recap some of the highlights of the night, shall we?

First, we’ll start with the newbies. As you’ll quickly learn, there’s a theme of basketball dominance to the night. And you know, I can’t blame the voting body. D’Moi Hodge came away with one of the newcomer winners along with Bella Hollenbach, Mizzou Soccer’s star keeper.

Maybe the most obvious award winner of the night? Dennis Gates winning Coach of the Year. Should’ve won it for the SEC too, in my opinion.

Only slightly less obvious? Kobe Brown and Jocelyn Moore winning Mizzou Athletes of the Year. Kobe definitely wins for for best award winner photo.

As for the “big” award on the evening, it makes a lot of sense that the most consistently dominant program at the school won the Team of the Year award. I suppose men’s basketball could’ve had an outside shot and Gymnastics probably would’ve finished second or third. But at the end of the day, is there really a “better” program at Mizzou than #TigerStyle?
