For arguing with player before Tenn game.

This is gross with one game left. I find it difficult to think a firing was warranted.

That program is seriously adrift. Coaches are doing everything they can to right the ship. It may take Missouri a decade or longer to dig out of the multiple messes they have created for themselves, some on the field, but many off.

A Missouri educator told me that the applications to Missouri are down not in the hundreds but in the thousands. In fact, this time next year the UA will probably see several hundred more freshmen from their northern neighbor.

The issues at Mizzou are deep and vast. I know Jackie from his playing days at Oklahoma. He’s always been respected. I don’t know that I would want to work at mizzou right now.
