Mizzou Tigers pennant What's On

This is and will always be the greatest appearance in the history of SEC Media Days. (Yes, the best part seems to have been edited out, but this was the best I could do. Just read about it after the clips, I guess.)

As these next few days drone on, just use this as a reminder that greatness can happen. (And use it as a reminder that, if greatness happens, you'll hear about it. You won't need to watch this thing live.)

Mizzou Tigers pennant It's preview season

The Trib (Behind the Stripes): Get to Know a 2015 Opponent: Arkansas
PowerMizzou: Study Guide: Arkansas

Reason for Missouri to worry: Arkansas finished in the top five in the SEC in every major defensive category, including second in total defense. The Razorbacks have shown they can play defense under Bielema, and 2015 should be no different.

Reason for Missouri to rest easy: BUT Arkansas did lose its three most productive players in Flowers, Philon and Spaight, and even with promise behind them, those are three big losses. Arkansas may not be quite as good defensively as it was in 2014, but it shouldn't have a huge drop-off, either.

Mizzou Tigers pennant Very Important Tigers

The Trib (Blake Toppmeyer): MU Olympic sports countdown: No. 11 Tori Finucane

When Finucane was healthy at the start of the year, she resembled her 2014 form. She posted a 1.70 ERA through the first 3 1/2 weeks of the season. One of Finucane's best outings came in Missouri's SEC Tournament opener against Mississippi State. She tossed a one-hitter in MU's 9-0 win in six innings.

The Trib (Blake Toppmeyer): MU Olympic sports countdown: No. 10 Markesh Woodson

With the graduation of throwers Kearsten Peoples and Jill Rushin, Woodson is the headliner for MU's track program. He's been especially good throughout his career in 60 dash. None of the four runners who placed ahead of Woodson in the 60 at indoor nationals were seniors, so he'll have his work cut out for him to place higher than fifth in 2016. However, he wasn't far off from a top-three finish.

Mizzou Tigers pennant IFL Runners-Up

Former Mizzou players make up most of the secondary for the IFL's Nebraska Danger: Pig Brown, Kenronte Walker, Darnell Terrell, Xavier Smith, and now Braylon Webb. They came up one game short of an Indoor Football League title, falling 62-27 to IFL dynasty Sioux Falls. It was Sioux Falls' fifth consecutive title. But hey, this gave me a reason to put a picture of RPT holding his Pig Brown jersey atop this post, so we're all winners in my book.
