The Greatest, #13: Braggin' Rights 1993

1

The 1993 Missouri-Illinois Braggin' Rights basketball game, a triple-overtime classic, had every type of possible significance. It was great in the present tense, and it had a lasting effect on...

Kentucky's real momentum

Mark Stoops improved Kentucky on the field (from awful to bad) and in recruits' living rooms (top-20 recruiting class) in his first year on the job. His Wildcats won't be bowling in Year 2, but...

Watercooler: Camp less than a week away

341

Mizzou's fall camp begins in six days, there's a battle for the fourth cornerback spot, there are minimal battles on the starting offensive line, and some former Tiger basketball players are still...

The Greatest, #14: 2007 receiving corps

30

Mizzou's 2007 receiving corps was an incredible collection of talent, a combination of four-stars and former walk-ons, a collection of All-Americans and future award winners.

Even Oregon has questions to answer

Oregon has one proven play-maker in its front seven and less experience at safety. And its go-to receiver is out. The Ducks also have Marcus Mariota and a navigable schedule. They'll be alright.

Watercooler: Webb steady, Josey Sprolesian

832

Braylon Webb is a steadying force for the Missouri defense, Evan Boehm is the center of the offense, Henry Josey looks/plays like Darren Sproles (which would be better if they weren't on the same...

The order of importance

57

What are the most important Missouri positions in your opinion?

The fewer headlines, the better

160

Mizzou stayed mostly under the radar during a really stupid news week. That's good. Now do it again.

The Greatest, #32: The Henry Josey story

9

The 2013 football season was an incredible one because of the success on the field. It was a transcendent one because of the stories off of it.

The Greatest, #46: Michael Sam comes out

12

Sports and community and student body and culture can sometimes converge. And it can be beautiful.

New names, same Stanford

We can talk about Oregon and UCLA and the Pac-12's depth, but Stanford is the conference king until proven otherwise. And despite a tough schedule, the Cardinal have a shot at a third straight title.

Watercooler: Britt = nasty

719

August 26 is Mizzou Day on the SEC Network (which is going to be in more and more homes), Justin Britt is "nasty" and a "Pete Carroll guy," and Mizzou Baseball's recruiting class gives hope.

USC's a sleeper? Welcome to 2014

Last year, stats pointed to Michigan State and Oklahoma State as the country's biggest sleepers. This year, the answer's a lot more boring. USC is still thin and breaking in a new coach, but the...

Watercooler: Marvin, ends, and FOA

808

Mizzou has produced a lot of good defensive ends, teams are racing to figure out Auburn, Marvin Foster has found his calling, and the Football Outsiders Almanac 2014 is now available!

Arizona State's reloading year

With almost all of last year's defensive difference-makers gone, Arizona State probably won't be a Pac-12 South contender in 2014. But if the Sun Devils hold steady on offense and play well at...

Watercooler: No Netflix for EJ

892

Maty Mauk's confidence rubs off on others, Dave Steckel tells E.J. Gaines to start studying (#giddyup), and Mike Alden's hair is immaculate.

The Greatest, #67: 2013 Volleyball

3

From hoping to make the NCAA Tournament, to hoping to win the SEC, to finishing the regular season 34-0, the Kreklows' Tigers pulled off one of the most heartening, redeeming, out-of-nowhere...

Plug-and-play Wildcats

If you assume that a Rich Rodriguez is going to produce functional quarterbacks and running backs no matter what, then Arizona could have a spectacular offense in 2014. The defense will hold it...

Watercooler: SOS, KU, and Summer League

981

Missouri's in-conference strength of schedule is quite favorable this fall, Gary Pinkel is asked to jab Kansas again and obliges, Jordan Clarkson had a great Summer League, and Jayson Tatum's...

The Greatest, #70: 2014 Cotton Bowl

15

Missouri's 2013 season was already a rousing success. But it wouldn't have felt quite as successful without a happy ending. In the 2014 Cotton Bowl, the Tigers got just that.

Oregon State has steadied the ship

After a pair of bumpy seasons, Mike Riley and Oregon State have reattained a steady level of success and quality in Corvallis. That should remain the story in 2014, though there are questions in...

Watercooler: Pinkel and the Bristol Car Wash

754

Gary Pinkel heads to Connecticut for a day at ESPN, powers-that-be are pushing for a Mizzou game at Busch Stadium, and J'Den Cox defeats the national anthem just like he defeats everything else.

Your "Let's do this" point

94

Have you passed your mental "Let's do this" point yet? And what is your "Let's do this" point?

Improved Utes face a nasty schedule

Utah improved rather dramatically on paper in 2013, but close losses and a key injury prevented most people from noticing. Can the Utes take another step forward this fall? And will it matter with...

The Greatest, #92: Kreklow to Henning

1

Molly Kreklow and Lisa Henning were instrumental in two different program turnarounds for Mizzou Volleyball.

Washington's a Pac-12 wildcard

Washington has only been truly good once in the last decade, but the Huskies return a number of exciting pieces from last year's 9-4 squad. And it doesn't take many ifs to turn Chris Petersen's...

How high is UCLA's ceiling?

UCLA still might have too little depth and too few big play-makers to be a national title contender. But the Bruins have come too far in two years under Jim Mora to write them off just yet,...

Nowhere to go but up for Cal

Cal started a true freshman quarterback and couldn't keep 11 defenders healthy at a time in 2013. In the improving Pac-12, this resulted in total disaster. The Bears should improve quite a bit in...

Depth charts and messages

36

Darvin Ruise, Harold Brantley, and Levi Copelin have some work to do if they want to end up starting for Missouri in 2014.
