Tramaine Isabell is a Tiger


Seattle point guard Tramain Isabell becomes the fourth freshman in Missouri's 2014 recruiting class, Kim Anderson's first in Columbia.

Links: Brown, Clarkson, and tonight's draft


The NBA Draft awaits for Jordan Clarkson and Jabari Brown, the Mizzou defense needs a few semi-proven names to become proven this fall, and the new Mizzou softball field is a go.

Overflow: Long live Danny Feldmann


Danny Feldmann is no longer with the Mizzou basketball team.

World Cup live thread, Day 15


Groups E and F: you're up! And try not to bite anybody, okay?

What now for Kansas?

Charlie Weis sacrificed long-term stability for short-term gains by signing a JUCO-heavy recruiting class in 2013 ... and Kansas didn't improve at all. Can a new offensive identity bring hope to a program at its most hopeless state?

Links: Namon, Thon, O'Bannon


Namon Wright talks versatility and weight rooms, Thon Maker's back story is (incredibly) unique, and we might be figuring out which way the O'Bannon v. NCAA case is going to go.

Tuesday water cooler: Let's talk local kids


1) Can you blame Rock Bridge kids for wanting to get out of town and, as one might say, experience the world? 2) If you answered no, would you also answer no about football players growing up in Norman, or Tuscaloosa, or Lincoln?

World Cup live thread, Day 14


The standings for Groups C and D will be decided today.

The Greatest: taking suggestions


We're taking nominations/suggestions regarding where to place some of the great things from 2013-14 on the Mizzou's Greatest list.

Links: Anderson's playing for keeps

Kim Anderson hires an assassin as his third assistant, Keyon Dooling wrote a really personal book, Mizzou Volleyball releases its 2014 schedule, and east-side expansion at Memorial Stadium is coming right along.

Searching for FSU's flaws

Florida State is the reigning national champion. The Seminoles have the reigning Heisman winner. They will probably have more players picked in the 2015 draft than any team of the last 20 years. We'll go out on a limb and say they're officially back.

10 numbers that have defined the World Cup

So many of the world's biggest stars have lived up to their billing in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. But the tournament's defining characteristics thus far have been depth and drama, and it has made a great sporting spectacle even greater.

Links: Sam, Cam, and Tramain


Michael Sam makes his case at Rams camp, 2014 point guard Tramain Isabell enjoys his Columbia visit, and Cameron Biedscheid is ready for an impact role.

World Cup live thread, day 9


We've got two winners-vs-winners battles to start the day, then ... uh ... another match at 5pm. Really curious what Costa Rica is able to do today. Less curious about Ecuador-Honduras.

Virginia Tech can win 10 games. If ...

With a Bud Foster defense and a schedule that features only one team projected better than 30th, Virginia Tech could once again win 10+ games in 2014 ... if its offense can at least be mediocre. But it wasn't even mediocre the last two years.

Links: It's been a hell of a year


For all reasons good and bad, it's been a pretty incredible, weird year for Missouri athletics. Also: the new softball stadium is approved, Mizzou wins a sportsmanship award, and we check in on Danario Alexander and Ricardo Ratliffe.

World Cup live thread, Day 8


This might be my favorite World Cup day of the week. You've got some potentially wonderful soccer aesthetics (and dancing!) when Colombia takes on Ivory Coast, then you've got an anxiety fest when England and Uruguay go at it.

Time for Clemson to pin its ears back

Clemson loses its two most visible stars from last year's Orange Bowl squad, but the Tigers return one of the best defensive lines -- and perhaps the best set of coordinators -- in the country. They are deep and fast and might not need to rebuild.

Links: Mizzou lands a leg


Punter Corey Fatony becomes Mizzou's ninth 2015 football commitment, basketball gets back to "roots", and #Stubble Field is on the curators' docket.

World Cup: The Numerical


The numbers that mattered from the first five days of the World Cup, from Thomas Müller's scoring, to Mario Balotelli's passing, to Mexico's lying scoreboard.

World Cup live thread, Day 7


Holland attempts an encore, Spain attempts to bounce back, and Croatia attempts to draw three points (and set up a winner-takes-second-in-Group-A match against Mexico) after kind of getting hosed against Brazil.

Miami's confusing expectations

Expectations are a funny thing for a Miami program with a brilliant history and the clearing smoke from the Nevin Shapiro investigation. Wherever the bar is set, though, it's going to be hard for Al Golden to clear it unless his defense improves.

Links: Shamburger's official


Hawaii point guard Keith Shamburger signs a financial aid agreement to become a Missouri Tiger, Mike Alden talks about football scheduling, and the O'Bannon v. NCAA case rolls on.

Pitt has potential, power, peril

The starting 22 for Paul Chryst's third Pitt team could be full of youth and upside. But just about every Pitt unit could get decimated by injuries or attrition. Regardless, the potential is high and will only get higher in 2015.

World Cup live thread, Day 6


Four teams have yet to make their 2014 World Cup debut; that will change today as the first cycle of round-robin group play ends and the second begins.

Links: Attrition happens


Cornerback Ernest Payton and defensive tackle DeQuinton Osborne are no longer on the Missouri roster. Plus, Mizzou's 2014-15 basketball schedule has come together nicely, and Kim Anderson isn't a fan of pay sites.

World Cup live thread, Day 5


The 2014 FIFA World Cup has been high-scoring, fun, and wet, and now it's the US' turn to participate. Jurgen Klinsmann's squad takes the field in Natal this evening after a rather impressive undercard.

Can UNC keep it going?

UNC has been hailed as a sleeping giant for basically each of the last 50 years. Larry Fedora's Tar Heels return an extraordinary amount of exciting offensive talent, but will shaky defense and flaky quarterback play hold them back?

Links: Love, basketball, and OSU


Missouri and Oklahoma State will play at the Spring Center in December (that's allowed??), J3 loves basketball again, Mizzou hosts a four-star receiver prospect, and two former Mizzou Softball players try out for Team USA.
