    This was the best case scenario for Mizzou. Cuonzo was the best coach that would even consider coming here and we were possibly competing against Illinois. Good job by the new AD!

    I was at MSU when Cuonzo built that program up, and it was an exciting time to be a college basketball fan. This gives Mizzou fans hope.

    His assistant coach is a former MU women's coach and the father of the #1 high school prospect who was going to follow him to Washington. The son almost went to MU. He probably will now that his dad left Washington where the head coach was also fired.

    The younger brother is a stud as well.

    Just need to get some complimentary players and they could be in real good shape real quick.

    Of course, I may be counting my chickens...

    Pretty sure Michael Porter Jr is the number 1 recruit in next years class. His brother is supposed to enroll early and play next year as well. They had some talent on the team this year, just not enough.

    Conzo did well down here at MSU, but man he's more boring than Shaq to listen to.

    That probably puts him a little above the median of what basketball coaches are paid in the SEC. Anderson was the second lowest paid basketball coach (only LSU paid less) in the SEC this year at I believe $1.2 million.

    not the first time a coach arrived amidst fanfare and high expectations. I am not celebrating potential and hope, I will wait and see, and keep my hope and expectations quietly.

    I see we have new coaches and a new A.D. The director was the problem. With all of that money flying around it seems to me that the kids on the teams ough to spit what the average coach / A D get.
    i GUESS IT MUST BE UN AMERICAN FOR THOSE WHO DO THE WORK TO GET ANYTHING

    Hmmm, I wonder if our local recruit marcedus leech will sway away from kansas, and stay a little closer to Mizzou now with the new changes.

    They play a sport and get a full ride, tutors, and lots of perks. That's enough pay. Do academic scholars at a school get paid for the things they accomplish on behalf of the school? Is MJP worth more than the fella riding the bench? Are we going to pay each one their worth? We already know top recruits get booster money, you want them to have more?

    I dare say for the majority of the potential superstars, college is something they have to endure long enough to be eligible to play the pros. Most don't graduate and rarely are they scholastic honors students. College sports has become big business and is a very small part of the dumbing down of America. It would be better to just pay them a salary and let the scholarships go to academics. I know that won't happen.

    Level the playing field , few of them will go to the next level.Some will end up with long term physical injury.
    Most are playing a game they love but even with tutoring the commitment to the sports has to reduce what they could achieve academically.
    Is not the under the table booster monies more sign of the corruption.Level the playing field, even the best coach can not do them right in life lessons in a corrupt system where those who perform get the screw.
    Level the playing field where sport is sport where everyone is on the same level.
    The same thing does exist in the academic realm to. The same things occurs in the academic realm to.The graduate assistants provide the brain power , the mentors and the system reaps the reward.
    The result is a corrupt system that is watching out for itself , perpetrating the system over knowledge and learning. It does effect the rest of us , this is what leads to everything prion in the search for answers on cwd.
    Science is the search for truth, when it limits the possibilities it does us no favor.
