Links: Track All-Americans, World Cup matches


Mizzou snags an All-American at the NCAA Track & Field championships, Brian Smith hires a new assistant, and four World Cup matches are on the docket for today, including England-Italy.

World Cup live thread, Day 2


The World Cup continues with the first full day of action, headlined by a rematch of the 2010 World Cup Finals at 2:00.

Louisville's hitman goes to work

Bobby Petrino was brought back to Louisville to do one thing: win. And he'll probably do so. He inherits a strong stable of offensive weapons, and though the defense will regress, the Cardinals are immediately one of their new league's best teams.

Links: Alden speaks, Sam/Gaines sign


Mike Alden and Pat Ivey talk about player benefits and conference autonomy, Kaitlyn Fischer sets a school record at the NCAA Track & Field championships, and Michael Sam and E.J. Gaines officially sign with the Rams.

World Cup live thread, Day 1


The World Cup officially kicks off this afternoon with the hosts taking on a pretty solid Croatia team.

Checking on Mizzou hoops (past & present)


Jordan Clarkson is moving up the draft charts, Laurence Bowers was rookie of the year in Israel, and D'Angelo Allen is working hard in Columbia.

Serena's lead over the field is shrinking

Colin Davy's updated Advanced Baseline rankings still have Serena Williams in the No. 1 spot, but her lead over the field is more tenuous than it has been in quite a while.

Motion capture and injury prevention


The Missouri athletic department is working with Dynamic Athletics (DARI) in Lenexa, Kan., to use 3-D motion capture and mapping to help prevent injuries.

GT has higher upside, lower downside

After winning 20 games in his first two seasons, Paul Johnson has settled into the seven-win groove Chan Gailey nearly patented at Georgia Tech. But with less experience and more upside, the Jackets appear more likely to win five or nine in 2014.

Links: Camps, O'Bannon, old realignment gossip


Mizzou Football camps are ongoing in Columbia, the O'Bannon v. NCAA case brings Tyrone Prothro to the stand, and someday somebody's going to write a book about EXPANSIONAPALOOZA™, and it's going to be the greatest book in the history of sports.

2014 recruit enrollment about done


With Trevon Walters' acceptance and Darnell Green's decision to wait until January to enroll, only one 2014 Mizzou signee's status is still up in the air: safety Greg Taylor.

Djokovic still the best off clay

Colin Davy's Advanced Baseline ratings have been updated for June. Despite the result of the French Open finals, Novak Djokovic continues to hold the top spot.

Is NC State a bounceback candidate?

Dave Doeren inherited an NC State roster with perilous depth, and injuries had blown up the two-deep by the end of September. With better luck, the Wolfpack could bounce back, but they're probably still a year away from making serious noise.

Links: Owen, #stubble, and Spooon :(


Kearney lineman Tanner Owen was offered at Mizzou's camp on Tuesday and committed on the spot. Also: Ehren Earleywine talked about transfers (incoming and outgoing) and "relational" assistants, and Sean Weatherspoon ruptures his Achilles.

What If: Mizzou in the B1G?


Missouri lost the first round of conference realignment when Nebraska took the Tigers' rumored spot in the Big Ten; Mizzou ended up doing even better, landing in the SEC a year later. But what might have happened if MU went B1G all along?

Now the work really begins at BC

Steve Addazio inherited an experienced lineup and a late-blooming superstar at running back. He rode that to a five-win improvement in 2013. What happens now that the team's bigger names are gone?

Links: Grandpa Mike talks MIZ, STL, SECN


Mike Slive talks about Mizzou, St. Louis, the SEC, and the SEC Network in St. Louis. Also: Tyron Woodley has a big UFC fight on Saturday, and the O'Bannon v. NCAA trial gets underway.

5 French Open reactions

Rafael Nadal and the rest of tennis' elite men are growing old, but Nadal is still the unforgiving French Open's reigning king.

Syracuse could be volatile, exciting

Syracuse could be fun in 2014, with a high-paced, run-first offense and a TFLs-or-bust defense. But a more experienced roster will need to overcome the inconsistency that held the Orange back last fall.

Links: Camps, kickoff times, and Demarre


Mzizou's summer football camps have begun, Mike Slive shows up at a St. Louis picnic, and DeMarre Carroll never rests.

Scheduling is tricky


Mizzou executive associate AD Bryan Maggard talks about football scheduling, and three Mizzou signees (all pitchers, naturally) get selected between the 12th and 18th rounds. Oh, and horse racing is dumb.

Quin's back


After 100 months in the wilderness, Quin Snyder is a head coach again. Plus, defensive end Eddie Heard flips from Mizzou to Oregon, and Mizzou gets two more pitchers selected in the MLB Draft.

Build your all-time Missouri team


You have $15. Build the best Missouri basketball starting five.

Duke enters post-breakthrough stage

After four years of fielding basically the same team, Duke got younger and improved dramatically in 2013. We now live in a world in which "Can Duke reach the conference title game again?" is a legitimate question.

Links: Awards, drafts, and E.J.


Gene McArtor wins the Faurot Award, Molly Kreklow wins the Top Mizzou Female Athlete award, Paige Lowery wins the Gatorade Iowa Softball Player of the Year award, E.J. Gaines meets his teammates, and Jabari Brown might be a Nugget.

One more chance at Virginia?

Mike London has reached Year 5 at Virginia because of potential and potential alone. His Cavaliers have won six games in two years, but recruiting means upside, and Virginia has quite a bit of it in 2014. They did last year, too, though.

Links: ~12 weeks to South Dakota State

South Dakota State has a strong running back, Matt Hoch is smart, Brett Graves loves Mizzou, and Jordan Clarkson is creeping toward the first round of the NBA Draft.

Storylines galore in the women's semis


Simona Halep and Andrea Petkovic joined Maria Sharapova and Eugenie Bouchard in the French Open semifinals with dominant Wednesday performances. Roland Garros features four exciting, interesting stories in the women's semis.

Is Wake Forest the next rebuild?

Dave Clawson has three successful rebuilds on his résumé; he might pull off a fourth at Wake Forest, but it will take us a year or two to figure that out. Barring an miraculous offensive turnaround, 2014 is going to be rough for the Deacs.

Links: Transfer epidemics & video game Kimmie

Taylor Gadbois' mother keeps fighting, the transfer epidemic isn't real, the MLB draft is approaching, eggs are delicious, and Kim English will evidently play a serious role in Cleveland's 2018 NBA title. So we have that to look forward to.
