I think Kim Anderson is a very good coach and would have been a good hire during some of their previous coaching searches... but at this point... it could easily take him 3-4 years to get the program turned around... and then he is only maybe a few years away from retiring, at which point we are right back where we are now.

I'm not sure too many Tiger fans will be sad to see him go.  Between the Miami related issues that lingered for a long time... his lack of tournament success... and missing the tournament all together this year with a fairly talented team that just didn't play hard for him.. I think it is time for him to go.  This is probably the best case for both parties as he gets to avoid getting fired... and Mizzou isn't perceived as giving up on a head coach too early.

As a fan, I am VERY disappointed that we won't get to see Mauk throwing to DGB this year... and the loss of his talent makes what was a very steep and uphill battle to repeat as East champs dang near impossible...  but Pinkel did what he HAD to do, to maintain the integrity of his program.

The kid has such HUGE potential.  It is a shame that all evidence so far points to him being a knucklehead... reminds me a lot of Tyrann Mathieu...

As for Clarkson, I don't see him as a 1st round talent, which means he should probably have hung around for another year.  I think his star power could have raised a lot with another solid year... but I can't hate on a kid for wanting to get paid.

@Sheizman  Haith is going into his 4th year though.  I'm not sure how much longer we can keep blaming everything on Mike Anderson.  The only "good" year Frank had was with all of Anderson's players.  Even then, they got knocked out in the first game of the tourney as a 2 seed.  His redeeming quality is supposed to be that he is a strong recruiter, but thus far all he has done is bring in a bunch of transfers... which are great for plugging holes and re-enforcing weak spots... but it's hardly the ideal way to build a "good" team.


IMHO, if Missouri does not finish in the top 3-4 in the SEC and make the tourney next year... then he needs to be fired.  Missouri will never be an elite program like Kentucky or (puke) Kansas... but they should be good enough to finish in the top 1/2 of the SEC, make the tourney, and advance a round or 2 in the tourney most years.

So if the NW players are "employees", does that mean that they have to start paying taxes on the value of their scholarships??


I am fine with athletes getting an extra stipend to cover their full costs.... but the last thing I want to see is college football turning into a professional sport with all of the top universities engaging in bidding wars for the top prospects.  Then it becomes nothing more than a lackluster version of the NFL.
