Apologies if someone else already started this, but thought I would get the conversation going if not.

Hell of a win tonight. Pinson is a stud. Tilmon looks to have finally learned how to defend without fouling.

Definitely a promising start to the season. 2-0 and looks like this has a chance to be the best team of the Cuonzo era up to this point.

People do give a shit.

I mean it was only 4 years ago that the Tigers were a solid basketball team and Mizzou Arena was damn busy. That wasn't even a great team (since Porter never actually played for them), but it was a good, solid, entertaining team.

I remember going to the Kentucky game with my old man - place was absolutely full and it was loud.

That wasn't a 30 win squad. I think it won like 21 or 22 games. It wasn't great, it just wasn't actively bad. And yes, the fans turned out for that squad.

But this team can't shoot, its defense is erratic, it can't pass. It does seem to rebound fairly well but that's about the only thing they do well. It's a bad basketball team that plays an extremely uninteresting style and there's no reason to believe, based on past results, that Cuonzo is going to make any of them better or suddenly create a more entertaining product.

People want to give a shit about Mizzou basketball - they just have no reason to at all.

Not much to salvage by doing it today. He's super fucking gone when the season is finished.

Cuonzo Martin not even having his defense pressure Auburn with only a 5 second differential on the clock down 1 point in a college game is absurdly dumb.
HonestChieffan 09:45 PM 01-25-2022
Martin is pure shit.

Mizzou needs to concentrate on football or basketball

No way they get respect in both

Not a player in either

Lol Cuanzo not fouling down one with 35 seconds left

Martin coaching like he wants Mizzou to take on his buyout. Just ****house coaching all around to end it.

Hey Martin told us himself this off-season, “He doesn’t care about wins or losses.”

What a god damn idiot. Why not foul?

I'm not going to watch any Mizzou basketball until they get a new coach. It's just not worth my time.

Yeah - when a coach purports to pride himself on his teams defense and toughness, then they just stand back and let the opponent run 30 seconds off the clock, it tells me that he just doesn't have a plan at all.

If you're a guy building a gritty, 'win in the trenches' sort of basketball team, you're up on those guys from the inbounds and pressuring them on every pass. Worst case scenario is a foul that gets you the ball back down 3.

You just can't hang back there. The guy just isn't a very good coach.

3) Because of Haith's NCAA issues, Alden refused to extend him and he jumped to a mid-major.
4) Because of 1, 2, and 3, Alden had no power left, and was forced to hire an unqualified disaster because of old fools, their nostalgia, and their lack of understanding of the current college basketball landscape
5) After Alden finally left, the shit sandwich of (4) led Sterk to panic when negotiating the contract with a very mediocre coach and make it nearly impossible to move on from him for simply making an NCAA tournament.

The last truly enjoyable season was a decade ago.

If Mizzou stops fucking things up, college basketball becomes enjoyable again.


I don't understand why this is so hard. I was all in on Gregg Marshall in 2007 (when they hired Mike Anderson) and was a big Brad Underwood fan when they hired Kim Anderson.

If I can identify those guys, how the fuck can the ADs/search committees NOT?
This is a really good post. I was going to bump this to make fun of their 20 point loss tonight, but this is by better reading and a shitty reminder of the shitty situation Sterk put us in.

Just fire this clown and throw what ever at Sean Miller….

Spare me the moral argument too…you wanna win in today’s CBB landscape? Hire a guy like that, done with the true sons and clean, cookie cutter golly gee shucks coaches.
gblowfish 11:32 AM 02-27-2022
Yeah, I've given up on Mizzou basketball. I've been watching Kansas State because my wife likes them. K-State beat the piss out of Mizzou at the Sprint Center when Kim Anderson was the coach. That really pissed me off, things have just gotten worse since then.
