The links offer you, the Rock M Nation readership, a simple promise. You click the link, we deliver the links. It really is that simple!
So when you click a headline that says, “Want to see Martez Manuel in a Chiefs uniform? Of course you do!” what else would you expect to see? Russian car crash videos? News about professional sports’ most morally bankrupt franchise being rewarded for their villainy with the chance to draft a generational talent?
Never! You came to see Martez Manuel in a Chiefs uniform. And so you shall see it.

Manuel later had some sterling things to say about the Chiefs’ coaching staff. Let’s ignore the slight implication this statement has for Mizzou’s program. (He says in the replies it’s against Mizzou at all.)

Details are important in Columbia too, right? Right?!
Yesterday at Rock M
- In which Karen recaps Mizzou Softball’s first (and last) series win of the conference schedule
- In which the basketball team logs a single update out of the transfer portal
- It was a good weekend for Diamond Sports, but especially for Luke Mann.
#SECBSB Weekly Honors— Southeastern Conference (@SEC) May 8, 2023
Co-Player of the Week
Luke Mann • @MizzouBaseball
Mann hit five home runs during a week in which the whole team hit 16. Pretty good I’d say. Matt Michaels reports that Mann’s .951 wOBA appears to be the highest in the nation last week, per D1Baseball’s leaderboard.
- Abby Feit’s weekend commitment takes care of a big need for Mizzou Women’s Basketball, but what work is left to do? Don’t worry, the Trib has you covered.
- Mizzou Softball’s opponent tonight in the opening round of the SEC Tourney is the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Read about the matchup at MUTigers.com.
