Saturday live thread

109

Jordan Clarkson shines in his Summer League debut, and Alex Oriakhi's draft rights are now property of the Sacramento Kings.

Colorado needs a second step forward

Colorado may have been the worst team in the country in 2012. So the simple fact that the Buffs were able to win four games and play occasionally competitive ball in 2013 was cause for celebration. What happens in Mike MacIntyre's second season?

The Greatest, #95: 2013 defensive ends

8

Missouri's defensive ends combined for 55.5 tackles for loss, 32 sacks, and countless game-turning plays during the Tigers' top-five finish in 2013.

Serena's still the best ... barely

+

Serena Williams is still the No. 1 player in the world according to Colin Davy's Advanced Baseline rankings, but her lead over the rest of the field continues to shrink.

All eyes on the Sooners

Oklahoma was both lucky and good at the end of 2013. The Sooners have the easiest conference schedule of any Big 12 contender, but can they prove that last year's holes have been plugged enough to reach the College Football Playoff?

Thoughts on Ricker's impending hire

22

A.J. Ricker will soon become Gary Pinkel's new offensive line co-coach at Missouri.

Who joins Germany in the World Cup finals?

Djokovic still No. 1

+

Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic remains No. 1 in SB Nation's Advanced Baseline rankings for the month of July.

Oklahoma State: The next generation

20

Mike Gundy has a lot of key pieces to replace and faces a rough schedule away from home. So 2014 might shape up a lot like 2012 for OSU, in which the Cowboys take their lumps, play at a high level, and break through in an odd-numbered year.

TCU close to high caliber again

Tight losses and sketchy quarterback play have held TCU back since the Frogs' move to the Big 12. Can a new QB, new offensive co-coordinators, and yet another fantastic defense change the narrative?

Texas in 2014? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

From defensive toughness to offensive identity to quarterback health, Charlie Strong's first Texas team has plenty of questions to answer. And depending on the answers, a middle-heavy schedule could be conducive to a gaudy record in either direction.

8 key numbers for the World Cup quarterfinals

While incredible goals (and a couple of incredible goal-keepers) stole the show, success in the World Cup's round of 16 depended even more on mistakes than brilliance. And it's time to play the Wait Till Next (four) Year(s) game with the USMNT.

Links: WR depth in 2014

472

Freshman receiver Keyon Dilosa is out for the season with an Achilles injury, which might put a bit more pressure on Mizzou's other four freshman receivers. Someone will likely need to become an immediate contributor.

Kansas State: permanent dark horse

17

Kansas State returns quite a few difference makers from a 2013 squad that played at a legitimate top-20 level after September. Does that make the Wildcats a Big 12 dark horse, or simply an outright contender?

Links: Coaches in, coaches out

514

Rob Fulford speaks, Bruce Walker retires, Ryan Rosburg talks about change, and ... let's take a look at the 2014 Mizzou Volleyball team.

Bruce Walker retires

12

Missouri co-offensive line coach Bruce Walker, who has spent nearly 20 years as a member of Gary Pinkel's staff at both Toledo and Mizzou, announced today that he is retiring from coaching.

USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! live thread

270

So ... has Belgium been playing to its level of competition, or does the USA have a really good shot of advancing to the World Cup quarterfinals?

Can West Virginia stop sliding?

West Virginia has lost 14 of 20 games and, in terms of advanced stats, has regressed for five of the last six years. Dana Holgorsen has the X-and-O prowess, but will his 2014 Mountaineers have enough pure talent to stop the slide?

Links: Updating the 2014 roster

620

All but two members of Missouri's 2014 football recruiting class are now on the official roster. Plus, Kim Anderson talks about his incoming freshman, and Phil Pressey follows his dream.

World Cup live thread, Day 20

98

So we're either going to see a pair of routine wins by European powerhouses, or we're going to see a fabulous upset.

Baylor's got pieces for another run

In today's Big 12 a sentence like, "survive an upset bid in Austin, and Baylor could be positioned well for another conference title run," actually makes sense. The Bears have some worries in pass defense, but aren't far from another championship.

Pump up for 2014 Mizzou football, work out with Matt Herring, then listen to the dulcet tones of Kim Anderson.

Would paying athletes affect your fandom?

62

Thanks to the O'Bannon v. NCAA trial, there's been a lot of talk about whether college football's (or college sports' in general) popularity would decline if student athletes were to get paid.

What are you looking forward to in 2014?

160

What are you most looking forward to this fall with Mizzou football?

Even when the plan works, nothing's easy

Before the World Cup began, it seemed the most likely scenario for the U.S. to advance through Group G involved three specific results and four points. That is exactly what happened, but living through it was in no way simple.

Texas Tech is dreaming big again

The last time we saw Texas Tech, the Red Raiders were delivering one of the best performances of the bowl season. Was that a sign of a bigger, better 2014 campaign? Probably not, but it's hard not to dream big with Kliff Kingsbury leading the way.

Links: The draft and the dance

975

Jordan Clarkson and Jabari Brown could have both improved their draft stock with another year in college, but they could still thrive moving forward.

NBA Draft live thread

111

Jordan Clarkson has a chance of becoming Mizzou's first first-round draft pick since DeMarre Carroll in 2009 and its first point guard selected since Keyon Dooling.

Iowa State looks for a rebound

Iowa State's offense might have more upside now than at any time in recent history, but it probably won't get much help from a young, rebuilt defense. ISU isn't hopeless, but the Cyclones are probably in for another down year in 2014.
