The Trib (Steve Walentik): Solution to Missouri's mistakes starts with raising intensity level (and other notes)

Missouri has to find a way to play with greater intensity and carry it through a 40-minute game, no matter then opponent, but especially when facing elite competition.

"I think that we have to understand that for us to be good, we have to play every game like it’s the most important game," Anderson said. "I’m not saying we minimized the game. We obviously knew Arizona was a great team, but for us to beat Arizona, we had to play an A game, and they probably had to play a C game. You can’t do it the other way around. They can’t play the A game and us play a C or a D game. That might have been a D game. It might have been an F game. So we’ve got to understand that every game there’s a sense of urgency."

Tomorrow would be a pretty good time to unveil that A game, huh?

And ICYMI, here's Sam's interview with Brad Loos again. Definitely give it a listen.

Some interesting work from David Morrison on SEC revenues.

The Trib (David Morrison): Stat Spotlight: How MU stacks up financially with the rest of the SEC

According to the reported numbers, Missouri is 11th in the SEC in revenue generated -- same as last year -- jumped Kentucky into 11th from 12th in football revenue and remained fifth in men's basketball revenues.

Just like last year, the Tigers reported the 11th-highest expenses total and 12th-highest in football, but dropped from ninth to 13th in men's basketball spending.

The 45.1 percent of the department's revenue that came from football ranks 12th in the SEC, while the 29.8 percent of expenses from it ranks sixth.
