On timing and Kim


The timing has been perfect, and Kim Anderson has been more than up for the job in his first three months as Missouri's head basketball coach.

On DGB & happier things


The NCAA isn't a court of law, and technicalities -- like using the Runoff Rule to make Dorial Green-Beckham immediately eligible at Oklahoma -- don't have to succeed.

Walkthrough: Printz and Zanders


Eddie Printz wowed with his scout-team accuracy in 2013, and Marvin Zanders wowed with his speed in the spring game. Both are battling to become Maty Mauk's eventual successors this fall.

Walkthrough: Corbin Berkstresser


Corbin Berkstresser was rushed into an impossible situation in 2012, then passed by Maty Mauk in 2013. Will he get a chance to prove himself?

Walkthrough: Maty Mauk


You know how the backup quarterback is usually the most popular player on the team? That probably isn't the case this year at Missouri, where Maty Mauk is a star waiting to emerge.

Ole Miss needs a 3rd step forward

With a superb defense alone, Ole Miss should be able to match last year's eight wins in Hugh Freeze's third season. The offense will dictate whether the ceiling is higher.

Watercooler: Boehm and line health

Evan Boehm goes to the K, offensive line health could dictate Missouri's offensive fate, Harold Brantley hasn't had a very fun offseason, and Paul Myerberg previews Missouri. Oh, and CAMP STARTS ON...

Emanuel Hall is a Tiger


Three-star Franklin, Tenn., receiver Emanuel Hall became Missouri's 11th commitment for the recruiting class of 2015.

Tennessee and the Ole Miss model

Extreme turnover in the trenches should prevent Tennessee from doing much better than about 6-6, but great recruiting and increasing experience could make for high 2015 expectations.

Watercooler: Golden time

Markus Golden's "like a bigger, stronger, faster Michael Sam, with comparable work ethic." Also: Maty Mauk set a high baseline with last year's performance, and Kip Edwards is a Buc.

The Greatest, #12: Stipo


By choosing to play for Norm Stewart, Steve Stipanovich helped to save Missouri Basketball. By playing as well as he did, he helped to push the Tigers to a level they had never seen.

Richaud Floyd is a Tiger


After a bit of a quiet summer (at least compared to last year), Mizzou landed its 10th commitment of the 2015 recruiting class when slot man Richaud Floyd decided to make his reservation.

Vandy starts over again

Derek Mason has the perfect résumé for continuing Vandy's winning ways in James Franklin's absence. But while the defense has some exciting play-makers, the offense will be a question mark.

Watercooler: No Levi

Levi Copelin has been suspended by the NCAA for the 2014 season after taking a legal, banned, over-the-counter substance. Also: Mizzou's linebackers are really young, and Linas Kleiza isn't playing...

The Greatest, #13: Braggin' Rights 1993


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 (awful to bad) and in recruiting (top-20 class) in his first year. His Wildcats won't be bowling yet, but there's opportunity for another step forward.

Watercooler: Camp less than a week away


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


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


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


What are the most important Missouri positions in your opinion?

The fewer headlines, the better


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


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


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


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


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...
