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.
