Get ready, Mizzou. The infamous Westboro Baptist Church plans to picket at Mizzou Arena on Saturday before the Mizzou/Tennessee basketball game. I encourage everyone to rally against Westboro, and show them what One Mizzou really looks like.
Congratulations Michael Sam. Sam could go on to be the first openly gay player in NFL history. He is likely to be drafted this year.
Your Missouri Tigers are the 2014 Cotton Bowl champions! To celebrate, here’s an awesome video of Gary Pinkel after Friday’s win.
We are just 18 hours away from kickoff for the Cotton Bowl in Arlington, Texas. Can I get an M-I-Z?
See you January 3rd in Arlington!
Your Missouri tigers will have a chance to play twice on the same day on the same network tomorrow. Mizzou basketball plays UCLA in Columbia at 11:30AM (CT) followed by football at 3:00 (CT) on CBS.
Tiger basketball flew by West Virginia earlier this week and tomorrow will be their first game versus a ranked team this season. No one is exactly sure what to make of the young Mizzou team this year, but a win over a very good UCLA would say a lot for Frank Haith and his players.
Meanwhile, Mizzou football plays in Atlanta versus Auburn for the SEC title tomorrow. A win over Auburn would guarantee the tigers with a BCS bowl game, and possibly a chance at the National Championship game with a Florida State or Ohio State loss.
Tomorrow is the biggest day for Mizzou sports in a while, and the nation will be watching. Let’s win big tomorrow, tigers!
The Missouri Tigers beat Texas A&M Saturday night 28-21. This is Mizzou’s 11th win of the season, and it secures their trip to Atlanta to play Auburn in the SEC championship. Despite their win, Missouri remains at #5 in the BCS polls behind Florida State (1), Ohio State (2), Auburn (3), and Alabama (4). The tigers will have a chance to move up though with a win in Georgia on Saturday.
Mizzou had just two conference wins last year, and now they sit at the top of the conference with a 7-1 record vs. SEC schools. Their only loss came to South Carolina in Double OT. A win Saturday could erase all memories of that game, although it would not guarantee the tigers a BCS national championship game. Regardless, Missouri has a real chance of going to a BCS bowl for the first time in school history.
The first BCS poll was released just minutes ago and the Missouri football team came in at number five. Only Alabama, Florida State, Oregon, and Ohio State are ranked ahead of the tigers. M-I-Z!
The #18 Mizzou Volleyball team beat #2 Florida today and improved to a perfect 23-0. The volleyball team had 4,202 fans in attendance for the game which is the most all season.
Of course Mizzou also beat Florida yesterday in football 36-17. The tigers are now ranked #5 in the nation for football according to the AP poll.
