Arkansas to Columbia

Mizzou is a 2 pt. Home favorite over our visitors from the South,  No. 25 Arkansas. 

Both Mizzou and the Hog’s off to rocky starts in the SEC. 

Word from Columbia is the last two game and now this one, that a very tough bout of flu is literally running through the Tiger squad. 

We’ll see how it plays out and no excuses for what ever happens as usual, it’s next man up. 

Arena is sold out and the students are back so it should be rockin. If the Hogs can hit their threes and not turn it over they win on the road.  If not their road woes will continue in the Show Me State. 

Good luck to both clubs best team wins.

Isiah Mosley for Missouri.  He played last year for Springfield, MO and was a national scoring leader.  Transferred to Missouri and gets splinters in his butt from sitting.  The St. Louis rag of a paper won't say anything other than personal reasons for why he isn't playing.  Do any of you guys have any other information.

That was a tough game to watch, so many fouls called, the game was so disjointed from all the fouls and play stoppages.  Arkansas is just not skilled on offense, they've got physical talent, but they don't play smart basketball.  Too many freshmen that still have a lot to learn.

Arkansas played 5 guys an average of 36 minutes and really only one sub. for 13 minutes. 

They were up 10 with 8 minutes to go. On the under 8 timeout It was easy to see they were totally exhausted. 

Mizzou coach Gates told his team to look at the Arkansas huddle and told them that team is simply worn out.  Mizzou had played 10 guys an average of 20 minutes. 

Man that is a lot of minutes. The Razorbacks are going to have to find some more bench players cause as the season progresses these kids are just gassed.

On Mosley, took it for granted he was going to be Top Dog. “WRONG”. Also thought he didn’t have to service  his NIL sponsors or attend online class.  He found out otherwise. 

thanks for those tidbits.  The Post Dispatch has never mentioned any of that.

I agree with Quill that the game was slowed to a crawl with fouls and reviews. It took 2 hrs and 30 min to play the game. It ended up being a pretty good game however. But i am a Tigers fan. It reminded me a lot of the KU v K St game. So many foul calls the game just never could develop a flow. MU struggles to score in a half court game. It has to rely on getting turnovers and getting pts off of them. And they simply cannot get a rebound. Your Razorbacks are so athletic!!  Big win for my Tigers. You have to hold serve at home. Razorbacks fall to 1-5 in the SEC. Which you would think would be alarming but remember 2 yrs ago they started off bad, ran off 11 straight wins and advanced to the Elite 8. Last year they started off bad, won like 15 of their last 16 and advanced to the Elite 8. I may have those mixed up but the point is still there. With Alabama coming to CoMo sat this was a huge game for the Tigers!!

I think you’re right Steve. Problem with the Pig’s is just no depth. Really just 6 guys with their 2 starters out. 

Mizzou should have won the first meeting squandering a 17 point lead. 

College basketball with the number of fouls that past 5 years has been almost unwatchable. 

There were a couple of totally bogus calls on Arkansas last night and 2 that the Hogs should have gotten intentional on.   So I guess it evens out.
