It is finally looking like Mizzou is on the national stage for sports for many years to come. Thank you Big 12 for everything but we are tired of being bullied around.
Lets look at the Tigers’ resume as of late: swept Baylor in basketball, beat kU in basketball, reached number 2 in basketball rankings, signed the number 1 overall high-school prospect, moving to the SEC, beat Texas in football this year, and if you look at last year we beat #1 ranked OU in football. In addition to this Mizzou has landed College Gameday for football last year, and for basketball this year. All of this has made Mizzou on the tip of a lot of peoples’ tongues as of late.
Mizzou has positioned its self to only more recognition by joining the SEC, which will help us financially and get the Mizzou brand out to the nation. If Pinkel and Haith can keep up the superb coaching and recruiting they have potential to do even more damage at a consistent level on the national stage.
Even though Mizzou lost to kU this weekend it looks like the programs are headed in polar opposite directions. kU has been struggling in football and shows no signs of getting better, and their basketball success might rely on OU and Texas not dissolving the Big 12. The future is extremely bright for Mizzou and I can not wait to see our campus and school evolve over the years.
