News: Mizzou Football announces more start times for upcoming season

+

For the second day in a row, really all we’ve got to talk about is the release of some more schedule updates for the upcoming Mizzou Football season and the upcoming SEC meetings. Much to my dismay, it’s more games with my least favorite start time. While there are no "official" ways to watch the NFR live stream for free without cable, there are several ways that one could go about still tapping into other resources to create a temporary viewing experience without incurring an extra cost.

Mizzou at the bottom of SEC revenue, but still turned a profit!

Missouri ranks at the bottom of the SEC in terms of football revenue ($34.6 million) and profit ($13.5 million). Per the article Missouri had $2.6 million profit when removing football revenue - the only school that could make that claim.

The numbers come from open records request for the 2015-16 academic year.

Tanner Houck goes #24 to the Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox chose Mizzou RHP Tanner Houck with the 24th overall pick in the first round.

Houck's draft position is valued at $2.6 million. From our friends at OverTheMonster:

The MLB draft officially got underway tonight, and the Red Sox finally got on the clock to make their pick. That pick ended up being Tanner Houck, a right-handed pitcher out of the University of Missouri.

Houck makes it two years in a row in which the Red Sox have gone with a pitcher with their first pick, although last year was one of the high school variety in Jason Groome. This year’s pick is a big righty — listed at 6’5", 220 pounds — has had big success in the SEC over his collegiate career. He fits the bill as a prototypical Dave Dombrowski pick as a big right-handed power arm.

There are questions about whether or not he can stick in the rotation, but the stuff is certainly there for Houck to be a major-league pitcher in some capacity. This past season, he pitched to a 3.33 ERA in 94 2⁄3 innings with 95 strikeouts and 24 walks.

"UVa announced early Friday evening both QB Marvin Zanders and offensive lineman Colin McGovern won’t be enrolling at the school. The pair of graduate transfers was expected to help positions of need for the Wahoos."

"Zanders, a 6-foot-1, 200-pounder, is a dual-threat QB who would have had two years of eligibility remaining at Virginia. If all went to plan, he’d back up Benkert in his senior season and then be a leading candidate to start in 2018."

One source told me that Zanders is considering the Vanderbilt Commodores as a backup option. We'll keep an eye on this story as it develops.
