Brad Burgess:: Hi Boys!

Sader:: Hey BB.

Sader:: Do you mind posting a transcript of tonite?  I can't stick around long.

Brad Burgess:: Will do.

Stlweir: Hi BB!

motom: We're having California weather - cold and rainy.

Sader: Thank you!

Brad Burgess: So what's on everybody's mind tonight?

Sader: let's get the class wrapped up!

Brad Burgess: I hear that!

Brad Burgess: And let's do it before Gary has any more interviews!

Stlweir: Are you up to date on the latest recruiting dirt?

Brad Burgess: Weir...on whom?

Sader: BB-you've gotta know something.....

Sader: Whoever!

Brad Burgess: Oh...sure.

Brad Burgess: I think Brooks is flirting with some other schools, but I feel pretty strongly that he's coming to MU

Stlweir: Has the Hawaiin punch been on campus?

Sader: That seems to be what I read from other folks too.

Brad Burgess: LaFell isn't going to be a Tiger from what I've heard recently.

Sader: Weir..yes they have

(NAPERTIGER joined)

Brad Burgess: The Hawaiians have visited already.

Sader: too bad on LaFell

Brad Burgess: Yep, but he's a national kid.

Brad Burgess: What are you going to do?

Sader: win more games

motom: Before the season I felt we only needed one wr this year - but we do need one.

Brad Burgess: I hear any day on Townson committing to us

Brad Burgess: Sader, that would help!

Brad Burgess: ;)

NAPERTIGER: Hi everyone!

Brad Burgess: Hi Naper and KC!

Sader: hey naper

KCTiger75: Hi Brad and everyone

motom: Hi.

(JPROCK1 joined)

Brad Burgess: I'm about 60-40 on Thornton being a Tiger right now.

Brad Burgess: Hi JP!

JPROCK1: Hey Brad

KCTiger75: What's the gut feeling on Smith?

Sader: And what Brad doesn't know...JP will!

JPROCK1: How long do you think this chat will be here?

(jmasixx6 joined)

Stlweir: How big a get would Smith from Rockhurst be?

Brad Burgess: JP, for as long as folks want to go...I have to bug out for a short time in about 20 mins.

JPROCK1: Smith would be huge IMO

jmasixx6: whats new?

Sader: I'm feeling good about Smith...too many guys being coy about his visit....guys who usually know stuff

Brad Burgess: Gut says we get Smith

Brad Burgess: Smith would be huge!

JPROCK1: Ahh...well good..I have to bug out now but will be back ASAP

Brad Burgess: Severino was saying he was the best player in his program to me last year!

Brad Burgess: sounds good

JPROCK1: C-ya all in a bit

KCTiger75: We sure as hell don't want him playing beside Kane

(JPROCK1 left)

Brad Burgess: jma...we're back out of the quiet period

Brad Burgess: KC...NOOOOO!

Brad Burgess: I think the Deke experiment is all but over, from what I've heard.

KCTiger75: What do you mean?

Sader: Where will he play then?

Brad Burgess: Even coaches are admitting he is too soft.

Brad Burgess: Where indeed???

jmasixx6: maytbe things will start up again

Brad Burgess: jma...they will, and very soon.

Sader: Danny said that when he was in HS..said he should be on offense

Sader: BB....elaborate if you can

KCTiger75: As what?  A receiver?

jmasixx6: BB any good news

Brad Burgess: Too soft to be a Mike linebacker.

Sader: DE?

NAPERTIGER: Deke has done his best work at rush dend.

Sader: Don't think you can put him on offense at this stage...

Brad Burgess: Well, the best news right now is that we are going to sign a very good class in football, our wrestling program is excellent and men's basketball is starting to come around.

Brad Burgess: I think he needs to play on the outside.

KCTiger75: and 2004 is over...........

Brad Burgess: OLB

Brad Burgess: KC...exactly!

Brad Burgess: RIP

jmasixx6: that is all good news

Brad Burgess: The Hawaiian guys are really keys right now.

(Fairbanks1 joined)

Brad Burgess: Hi Fairbanks!

Sader: Hit the road 04, and dontcha come back no more, no more!

Fairbanks1: hey Brad

Brad Burgess: It's going to be difficult to pull them out of Oregon's clutches, however.

jmasixx6: they are guys i think we need

Sader: Gotta head out....see you all soon.

(Sader left)

Brad Burgess: Oregon has a very long history with Pacific Rim players.

Brad Burgess: We don't...

NAPERTIGER: Bb you are right about the Island boys,we needed them!

motom: In 04 we learned what it was like to be a Cubs fan - not pretty.

Brad Burgess: Not pretty at all.

KCTiger75: try being a Royals fan

trwyatt: who wouldn't like to kick doug g. dead in his ass

Brad Burgess: So, were people encouraged by GP's interview in the Trib or pissed off by it?

Fairbanks1: Brad, do you see any players sliding over to play DT?

KCTiger75: I didn't see anything new in it.

jmasixx6: but we have immediate playing time available

Brad Burgess: Drecar thinks Jackson will...personally, I haven't heard that.

NAPERTIGER: BB maybe the 2 island guys want to get away from home and play in the top football conference in the U.S.

Brad Burgess: jma...and that's what is attractive about us!

Brad Burgess: Naper...true.

KCTiger75: It looks like GP is going to try to be more user-friendly

trwyatt: gottlieb is a jerk

Brad Burgess: Still, that ethnic group tends to follow closely to those who came before...I hope I'm wrong.

(StPats93 joined)

StPats93: howdy!

Brad Burgess: KC...he was told to be more friendly by Alden.

Brad Burgess: Hi St.Pats

KCTiger75: not surprised

StPats93: well, leave it to me to be so late

StPats93: any more news on the Hawaiians, or any other JUCO OL help?

Brad Burgess: StPats...we'll know more after this weekend's visit to Oregon.

Brad Burgess: No other JC OL help out there to my knowledge.

StPats93: ouch

(Mizzouman joined)

KCTiger75: Are we convinced that the Oline personnel we already have can't get the job done?

StPats93: oregon might feel a whole lot closer than Missouri to Hawaii

NAPERTIGER: Welcome MM happy new year!

trwyatt: how is kyle riggs health

jmasixx6:   bb anynews about smith.is it possible hord changes his mind

Mizzouman: hord won't come

Brad Burgess: Hi MM

Brad Burgess: KC...not at all, but the depth is weak

trwyatt: i say hord to nd

motom: Any truth to the rumor that the OU may come in late on the okla ol who verbaled to us?

Brad Burgess: StPats...exactly, plus many island kids have attended there before.

Brad Burgess: jma...we're in good shape with Smith...No on Hord...for sure.

Brad Burgess: motom, I read that post from londonfog...let's hope not!

Brad Burgess: We had better hope that OU's recruiting picks up a bit!!!

StPats93: i sure hope wise liked seeing palmer there as much as he said he did!

(bj4mu joined)

bj4mu: what's up guys?

Brad Burgess: Hi BJ

KCTiger75: It seems interesting that we are exclusively talking fb, in the middle of bb season.  Hmmmm.........

NAPERTIGER: Well MM any scoops in football?

motom: Quinn' s stock BJ.

bj4mu: Is seems that's true, motom.  No complaints here

(OBecianTiger joined)

StPats93: there are conflicting rumors on Quin's job security

KCTiger75: here we go.........

StPats93: is there any truth that there is a buyout in place?

StPats93: like, ready-to-go?

Brad Burgess: Quin isn't in trouble.

StPats93: cool

trwyatt: way too early for that talk

Brad Burgess: No doubt...silly talk.

Mizzouman: don't believe everything u hear

Brad Burgess: I don't! ;)

StPats93: i was hoping not, but where better to ask than here in "Vegas"

Brad Burgess: That's right, what is said here, stays in here!

Brad Burgess: What's up, OB?

StPats93: i don't know much about our basketball program

(mav02 joined)

OBecianTiger: Seeing what I might have missed

Mizzouman: i actually talked to alden about it last week and he said if the team played HARD it would be very tough to fire him....with the talent we have on future teams

mav02: hey guys whats new

trwyatt: these guys look coachable and hungry to learn

Brad Burgess: TR, I agree.

Mizzouman: the key for Q is if the teams plays HARD for him.....he is fine

StPats93: how much pressure does Pinkel feel to beat Kansas next year?

Brad Burgess: I'm very encouraged by what I am seeing on the hardwood.

Mizzouman: and they are

Brad Burgess: They are!

KCTiger75: I didn't tape or watch the Gonzaga game.  Must be why they won!

Brad Burgess: KC...you missed a classic

NAPERTIGER: I think Q's team is playing with heart and is really laying it out,contrary to prior years.

KCTiger75: I know

Brad Burgess: SP...he would probably say none.

Brad Burgess: But then, he's Gary!

StPats93: exactly

StPats93: any more to the CJ Mosely drama?

OBecianTiger: are we still in the dead period for fb recruiting?

trwyatt: if we ever start knocking some shots down look out

StPats93: dead period juuuuuuuuuuuuust ended

KCTiger75: He'd better beat KU or I'm moving to the end of the world.........maybe even

NAPERTIGER: How did everyone like GP's interview in the Trib yesterday?

KCTiger75: Sacramento

bj4mu: Mostly pleased, Naper

Brad Burgess: KC, that's where everything and everybody from KC ends up!!!

StPats93: i was encouraged by GP's interview - although it's a little overdue

Brad Burgess: Naper, it pissed me off, but that's just me.

OBecianTiger: standard stuff from Pinkel.  Probably just pr for the kinder, gentler version

Mizzouman: i just like Q emotion in the games

bj4mu: How so Brad?

StPats93: brad - what about it was a pizzer?

Mizzouman: if you aren't there.....u should check out the pics put up on the site after the game

Brad Burgess: I wrote most of it in that thread...I question whether he "get's it" or not.

Brad Burgess: The Becking photos!

StPats93: mizzouman - count me as thrilled that the basketball team is playing hard and growing

trwyatt: was that i.miles with coach perez thur nt

KCTiger75: gotta go guys..........have a good night!

StPats93: i think one good sport feeds the other

Brad Burgess: GP constantly refers to the defensive turnaround as an example of how they can make things work and why a coordinator shouldn't be fired.

Mizzouman: its funny in a way.....Q is on his hands and knees banging the floor to play D....then tryin to get the crowd pumped up....standing on his chair

motom: We won't have to get too far into next season before we get a read on whether GP gets it or not.

Brad Burgess: MM, I like the energy, but I like the tactical moves even more.

StPats93: Brad - I agree that the defensive situation and the offensive ones are completely different deals

Brad Burgess: Tom...exactly.  I hope we get a good read this spring.

Mizzouman: YES......trw

Mizzouman: that was miles

StPats93: amazing our attrition on the offensive line

(KCTiger75 left)

Mizzouman: our future pg.......haha

StPats93: when we could not afford it with even a cursory glance at the rodter

StPats93: roster

StPats93: makes me wonder what christensen was doing

StPats93: brad, any news on wyrick's recovery? he was a major loss in terms of growth and depth last season

(Rage Dave joined)

NAPERTIGER: Brad,I can see how GP pissed you off but I thought his analysis of the losing streck and difficiencies was quite well reasoned.You just did not have the patience to wade though all the Pinkelisms!

Mizzouman: hey rage

Rage Dave: Hey MM

Brad Burgess: St. Pats...won't know much more until off season workouts get rolling and spring ball.  I haven't heard anything more recently on him.

Brad Burgess: Hi Rage.

Rage Dave: Hey Brad

StPats93: cool, thank you

OBecianTiger: Okay, I am going to be the contrarian here concerning basketball.  In his fifth season, we still have no offensive movement to speak of.  My concern was never how hard this team played for Quin.  It was, and still is, whether he can manage a game and get some kind of movement on offense.  Part of the reason for our offensive ineptitude is because we dribble around for 30 seconds and then someone jacks a 20 footer.  As a result, of course we are not going to shoot well.  

motom: Head to head competition for positions is fine, but some teaching is required as well.

Rage Dave: Miss anything interesting?

Rage Dave: The three freshmen we will have in this class are very solid, Riggs is potentially great, Saunders could be very good, Spieker and Luellen could be great as well

StPats93: rage, i agree it is moving the right direction - just wonder what the untimely hole wll do to GP and the program

bj4mu: MM, is Q doing anything differently to help shooting percentage?

OBecianTiger: Glad to hear it.  After 2004 in Mizzou sports I need something to hang onto.  It's getting embarrassing wearing Mizzou gear.

StPats93: rage is Dirk pannig out - they had plenty to say about him recruiting - just wondered

Rage Dave: SP: I think it was a blip, a factor that the first two classes were a bust except for Palmer

StPats93: sure

StPats93: about the blip

Rage Dave: Dirk is a guy I don't know much about

Rage Dave: They really like him though

StPats93: who was thewalk on - Hille?

Mizzouman: tryin to get it inside and then back outside

Mizzouman: tryin to focus on takin 15 foot jumpers like last game

Rage Dave: Also Colin Brown

trwyatt: seem hesitant to throw in to the post but ky  doesn't have good hands and kg doesn't kick it back out very well

StPats93: yeah, Brown - what a nice surprise

StPats93: mizzouman - I could not believe how much better the offense looked in the Illinois game

bj4mu: That was nice to see, MM

StPats93: very exciting

Rage Dave: I've seen JUCO Russell play, he looks good and the Hawaian if he comes could be good too

Rage Dave: That's immediate help

StPats93: especially compared to my managed expectations

StPats93: Rage - I am just worried we will get no other o-line help beyond Russell

(OfallonTiger joined)

OBecianTiger: Rage, what is the word on Clinger?  Will he make any impact this year.  I remember reading article where Christensen stated he had the perfect frame for an OT.

Rage Dave: Well I feel guardedly optimistic

bj4mu: What's your gut on the Hawaii Juco's after Oregon, RD?

Mizzouman: they have only played 4 games in the new offense soo it should be even better

StPats93: good to hear about your optimism, rage

Rage Dave: Guardedly optimistic about the Hawaiian JUCOS

StPats93: i think offensive line sets the tone for the college team

bj4mu: Sure worried about the facilities at Oregon myself.

Mizzouman: you like the alley opp play.....that was put in the day before the zag game

OfallonTiger: Hi all happy new year!

OBecianTiger: StPats just ask the teams that played Nebraska in the mid 90's

trwyatt: conley best game as tiger vs zags

bj4mu: Was SWEET!!  MM

Rage Dave: I just try to trust that Pinkel can close the deal

StPats93: not only nebraska - that's why miami has always maintained a running game to go with that passing outfit, and the spread offense has so many short passes

StPats93: have to win time of posession battl

bj4mu: He's record in that arena is pretty solid

StPats93: battle

bj4mu: Where did the changes on O come from, MM?

StPats93: Mizzouman - do you think our improved assitant coaching is a major or minor asset on the recruiting trail - any feedback about that?

Mizzouman: totally threw out the new offense and put in this one

OfallonTiger: Hey bj4mu, I like your prediction/dream on DJ Hord, I hope it comes true.

bj4mu: Me too, Ofallon.  :)

StPats93: and, i have only been in the arena on a small visit during colorado game - are recruits liking it a lot, too?

(JPROCK1 joined)

Mizzouman: we had the duke o in bc we were a great shooting team but since we can't hit anything now....Q had to change it up soo we had a better chance to win

Mizzouman: STP......great affect on recruiting

OfallonTiger: MM do you see Dandridge earning more minutes

Mizzouman: i think 06 for us is about done.....

Mizzouman: we are starting to work on 07 now....our next foundation class where this 04 class will be seniors

OBecianTiger: JP, what is the good word for football recruiting ? 

Mizzouman: if we hit it big.....we are in awesome shape

Mizzouman: glen will get more mins if he keeps it up in practice

bj4mu: Gotta get the W's, MM

bj4mu: Has defense been the major reason as we all surmise

StPats93: JP! how is it going - love your posts on the boards

JPROCK1: Good is the word....it is looking good

JPROCK1: Hey Stpats...thanks

Mizzouman: yes

Mizzouman: its not the offense bj

Mizzouman: hahahaha

JPROCK1: Right now it looks like it`s all a Mizzou lean except Hord

Mizzouman: he is our next kareem rush

StPats93: JP

bj4mu: That's for sure.  That head fake and 15ft'er was NICE!

JPROCK1: Our next Rush?You must be talkin about Dandridge?

StPats93: it's all about that Hawaian Punch, and the CJ Moseley thing - any thoughts?

Mizzouman: who is leaning mizzou JP???

Mizzouman: i am.....jp

Mizzouman: people might think i am crazy.....but he has a chance by his senior year

JPROCK1: Brooks,Smith,Townson and Thornton...well...i`m speculating on Thornton

JPROCK1: Not crazy at all.. I said that about him when he was at Mt.Zion

OBecianTiger: Anyone know where are we with LaFell and Moore?  Are they just a pipe dream at this point?

JPROCK1: Kid is an amazing offensive talent who if he is in on is as good as it comes

JPROCK1: I don`t think LaFell knows himself...Moore?Moore who...don`t say Kestahn lol

OBecianTiger: Yes Kestahn.  What did I miss on him?

JPROCK1: I think LaFell is eating up the attention from the big timers...right now i`d say he winds up in the SEC or miami if they offer

bj4mu: Did I read that FL offered JP?

Stlweir: MM, do you see more playing time for Grimes? 

JPROCK1: Nothing...he currently isn`t considering Mizzou...people are speculating that w/Miles going to LSU that he`d re-think Mizzou

JPROCK1: I haven`t heard,BJ... did they?

Mizzouman: grimes will get more time

bj4mu: Can't remember where I saw it but I read it somewhere, JP

Mizzouman: fergy getting hurt was a blessing in many ways

Mizzouman: Q loves youngs heart, passion and D

Stlweir: MM, Gardner shooting 28% from 3 point land, what with that?

JPROCK1: Grimes will only continue to get better...people will love him by his senior year

bj4mu: Been one of my quibbles with the staff, so far MM.  I LOVE Grimes' upside

(Rocky59 joined)

bj4mu: Hey Rocky!!

OBecianTiger: Gotta go make prep for the game...enjoy the next two nights.  Maybe next year.

JPROCK1: I`ll check...I know several SEC schools were looking including Fla and S.Carolina

Rocky59: HeyAll!

StPats93: hey, Rocky!

Stlweir: He'll get more love if he learns to shoot free throws!

JPROCK1: Hey Rocky!

(OBecianTiger left)

NAPERTIGER: JP do you hear anything on the Hawiaiians or anyother JC's?

Rocky59: What's up?

Mizzouman: grimes will be in the nba one day....i believe

Mizzouman: gardner is just strugglin.....they are workin on a flaw in his stroke

Stlweir: I hope so but that is a long way off.  We dissagreed on Paulding.

bj4mu: How's it affecting his confidence, MM?

Mizzouman: if he shots with his finger tips...instead of his back of his palm he makes it

Mizzouman: its a bad habit with him and he did it better last game

bj4mu: Heard he was fading away also

Mizzouman: alittle

motom: MM - that's a common problem for shooters.

bj4mu: Was that from you on the boards, MM?  :)

JPROCK1: Only thing on the Hawaiian punch is that we`ll know probably by Sunday or Monday

bj4mu: What's your gut tellin' you JP?

Mizzouman: how many do u think we have left jp??

JPROCK1: That it`ll be tough to keep them off the west coast...

Stlweir: JP, what is the story on Daniel Moore if any?

Rocky59: Who's Daniel Moore?

bj4mu: That's the rumblings I get as well. 

(OfallonTiger left)

JPROCK1: probably about 6 maybe more

Mizzouman: if these boys can learn to score more......this season could turn out to be very suprising

Stlweir: LB from O;Fallon, Ill

Rocky59: Thanks.

Stlweir: Dowtown wants him.

bj4mu: Other than the change in scheme, anything the staff is doing to improve shooting?

Stlweir: Thinks could grow into a DT.

Rocky59: That we could use.

Rocky59: I still look for Lo williams to move inside.

StPats93: anyone talk with CJ Moseley lately?

bj4mu: Anybody sad that LM went to LSU?

Rocky59: No me.

StPats93: i think OSU is not going to reload so easily

StPats93: wonder why they brought that guy gundy in

Rocky59: NOT

StPats93: accelerated losing miles

NAPERTIGER: No he was a good coach.

bj4mu: Morency's going pro as well

motom: I think Morency's a pro - and the sooner the better.

NAPERTIGER: Glad to see him go.

Rocky59: I noticed CJ has a younger brother who is a walk-on.

bj4mu: In stereo, motom.  :)

motom: Si.

(JPROCK1 left)

Rocky59: Did Brad leave?

bj4mu: For a few, Rocky

Mizzouman: hasn't been here awhile

Stlweir: Rocky, BB said he would be back shortly?

Rocky59: Did he have any new news?

motom: Good night. Next week?

(motom left)

Stlweir: MM, where have you been?  Haven't seen you post much.

StPats93: any more insight into the offensive wizardry we can expect from our football coaches next year?

bj4mu: IF we land Brooks, Townsend, Smith, and Thornton this would be one helluva class, don't you think guys?

Stlweir: Nothing  new Rocky.

StPats93: bj4mu - i think we need at least one more JUCO guy for O-Line for me to get excited

Rage Dave: Given the circumstances it would be a solid class

Stlweir: Definitely.  After the dissapointing season the staff has done a hell of a job!

Mizzouman: around.....just recruiting man;)

bj4mu: Yeah, 93.  The O-line will certainly hold the key next year

Rocky59: We know they can recruit.  can they coach on game day>

StPats93: all in all, it's a testament to the motivation the staff has to recruit

StPats93: I wonder what they will do with the running game

Rage Dave: They coached on game day last year

Brad Burgess: Hi guys...back

StPats93: we depserately need some misdirection in our plays, sorry, Dave

bj4mu: We definitely need a scheme tweak but the hogs will have to do their job

Mizzouman: hey brad

bj4mu: Welcome back, Brad

JPROCK1: Only thing on the Hawaiian punch is that we`ll know probably by Sunday or Monday

bj4mu: What's your gut tellin' you JP?

Stlweir: MM, where have you been?  Haven't seen you post much.

StPats93: any more insight into the offensive wizardry we can expect from our football coaches next year?

bj4mu: IF we land Brooks, Townsend, Smith, and Thornton this would be one helluva class, don't you think guys?

Stlweir: Nothing  new Rocky.

StPats93: bj4mu - i think we need at least one more JUCO guy for O-Line for me to get excited

Rage Dave: Given the circumstances it would be a solid class

Stlweir: Definitely.  After the dissapointing season the staff has done a hell of a job!

Mizzouman: around.....just recruiting man;)

bj4mu: Yeah, 93.  The O-line will certainly hold the key next year

Rocky59: We know they can recruit.  can they coach on game day>

StPats93: all in all, it's a testament to the motivation the staff has to recruit

StPats93: I wonder what they will do with the running game

Rage Dave: They coached on game day last year

Brad Burgess: Hi guys...back

StPats93: we depserately need some misdirection in our plays, sorry, Dave

bj4mu: We definitely need a scheme tweak but the hogs will have to do their job

Mizzouman: hey brad

bj4mu: Welcome back, Brad

Rocky59: Rage: Are you talking about 03?

NAPERTIGER: We need 1 JC dl& 1 JC ol,in addition to smith,Thorton,Townson.

Rage Dave: SP: don't necessarily agree, a good offense can ram it down people's throats

Stlweir: Which coach is recruiting the Hawaiin Punch?

StPats93: i think tipping your hand before the play starts is a desperate loss to the O-Line

Rage Dave: Rocky: ys

Brad Burgess: Weir, I think it's DC

Rocky59: I thought the Nebraska and Tech games were good  but I thought Kansas, colorado, and Arkansas were suspect.

NAPERTIGER: Kool is on the dl.

Brad Burgess: We needed deception in our plays, whether it is a power or misdirection play.

Rage Dave: Rocky: I was thinking overall

StPats93: Rocky and Brad - I agree this playcalling thing was very evident in '03

bj4mu: Agreed, Brad.  The biggest playcalling deficiency in '04

Stlweir: BB, you know anything about Brandon Thomas of E St Louis?  Grade issues?

Rocky59: I can't say that I've seen it.

bj4mu: You know about playcalling though.  Marty S. always said it was overrated in K.C. and we bitched and moaned.  The man can coach though.

Rocky59: Building a program and winning on gameday are sometimes two different skills.

bj4mu: Agreed Rocky.  Now which do you think is MOST important

Rocky59: Joe Pa, Stoops and Urban M are gamedays coaches.

bj4mu: Not a bad crew.  :)

Mizzouman: FYI...speaking of a earlier question on the distant 07 class.......you have to remember we will have 5 ships available and 6 of the top 50 in that class will be from the state of missouri

StPats93: mizzouman

StPats93: that is a long way away to know the top 50

bj4mu: Yikes!!  That's good news

StPats93: but i hope it goes that way?

Rage Dave: I shall see you guys later

bj4mu: Later Dave

(Rage Dave left)

StPats93: rocky - bowden, schembechler, tressler good program coaches

StPats93: trick is to hire a good game day guy

Rocky59: The TVs talking about the game.  Hell it's started . Bye all.

bj4mu: See ya Rock

StPats93: what channel has the game?

(Rocky59 left)

bj4mu: Sure wish this was Utah vs. Auburn.  :(

trwyatt: abc

StPats93: oh yeah

StPats93: that game

StPats93: well

StPats93: c y'all later

bj4mu: Later

(StPats93 left)

Mizzouman: true enough stp.......but they have serious talent and this is what i do for our fine university sooo i have alittle background;)

(HBTiger3 left)

bj4mu: Any word on Alden waiting for the UT job?

Mizzouman: that has been known by me for about 3 years now

bj4mu: Is it an inevitability?

Mizzouman: think so

bj4mu: Anybody looking for possible replacements?

Brad Burgess: BJ, Texas AD signed a long extension.

Brad Burgess: Weir, that's what I've heard about Thomas.  He will likely be placed.

bj4mu: That's a bit of a contradiction then huh. 

NAPERTIGER: Does Gp survive next year or is he fired?

bj4mu: Are you assuming a bad year, Naper?

Stlweir: MM, any final thoughts on Hansburogh?

Brad Burgess: Naper, I'm not assuming a bad year next year.

Brad Burgess: Weir...did you catch David Lee riding the bench for the last seven mins. of the Florida game over the weekend?

NAPERTIGER: BJ I am hoping for a good year.Not in anyones best interests to fire GP or have a bad year.

(tigergreatness joined)

tigergreatness: whats up everyone?

Brad Burgess: David Lee not only wasn't an NBA player, he isn't much of a college player either, at this point.

Mizzouman: he committed......wants to be a tiger right now......is going to tarhole......in a panic tryin to get his whole family to nc to be near him.....he has been successful with his mom soo far......not much more to say.....he is a tiger at heart period

Brad Burgess: Hi TG

Brad Burgess: MM, I think that pretty much covers it.

bj4mu: Has he signed the LOI yet?

Brad Burgess: Tyler should have come to MU, but he missed his chance.

Brad Burgess: BJ...yes.

bj4mu: What am I saying.  Tired of that saga anyway

tigergreatness: how goes everyone?

NAPERTIGER: Yes for all the talent at Florida in Bball thier coach sure hasn't done much.

Brad Burgess: Donovan has been a joke.  How much did FSU beat them by this weekend?  It was a rout!

tigergreatness: you mean slicky billy never let lee play the 3 like he was promised . . . of course that's why he didn't develop hahaha

Mizzouman: dono is going to get fired this year

Mizzouman: the boosters have been rumbling they want Q out as well

Stlweir: Anyone care to spell out want Damien Nash was/is thinking?

Mizzouman: ironically there has been even more talk of this after the zag win....go figure

tigergreatness: those boosters = morons

bj4mu: That's not too hard to figure, MM.  The more he wins the harder it is to fire him

Mizzouman: i honestly see this whole thing lining up perfectly for us in the future

tigergreatness: hows that?

Mizzouman: we are close to getting a few 06 kids

NAPERTIGER: MM which sport?

bj4mu: How so, MM?

Mizzouman: both but especially basketball

Stlweir: Winning cures all.  I like all the freshman, Horton continues to get better.

Mizzouman: well we got a bogus ncaa ruling.....it made Q get better coaches around him and made Q get tougher on his players

Mizzouman: play D or u are gone

tigergreatness: the boosters are ridiculous if they can't see future stamped on the foreheads of each 04 class member

Mizzouman: its worked

tigergreatness: whatever it takes

Mizzouman: then they pullin a top 30 class in 05.....which has really pissed off the ncaa

bj4mu: That's fate, my man

Mizzouman: then 06 will turn out to be top 25 with the sanctions

Stlweir: MM, do you think Conley saw that he can really be a big factor playing in the paint, working the boards, playing D and reducing his perimeter game.

tigergreatness: lol the audacity of the ncaa just irks the hell out of m

Mizzouman: with 07 being another foundation class for Q with no ncaa sanctions and most if not all our prospects coming from the state of missouri

NAPERTIGER: Hope Q recruits at least 1 point guard a year,what a difference they make!

bj4mu: Which illustrates how important is was to see this team play D and the team play hard for him. 

bj4mu: Those are great indicators of a strong coach

Mizzouman: the 07 class will be fresh when the 04 class is seniors......then they take over as soph

Mizzouman: it really works out well for us

Stlweir: Only 8 turovers - impressive!

tigergreatness: assuming Q stays around

bj4mu: And with recruiting success this is very encouraging

Mizzouman: if he doesn't get canned......it will work out great

trwyatt: coaches are doing a great job of getting linas to be a complete player

Mizzouman: the 04 class is probably a top 3 class in the country.....it will win us alot of games

bj4mu: It wouldn't be done intra season would it?

Brad Burgess: The 04 class is excellent.  Compare it to KU's!  I'd take ours every day.

bj4mu: Agreed, Brad  Now about '05..........

Brad Burgess: 05 has two very good players, assuming Grant qualifies

Mizzouman: also the way Q is coaching play hard and play D or you don't play

Brad Burgess: MM, and what a turnaround that has been!

Mizzouman: works great for players like grimes and criswell that don't always bring it all the time

Brad Burgess: That rule was never in place last year.

bj4mu: Yes it does Brad

Stlweir: BB, how the heck can Minnesota come in and recruit kids out of St. Louis?

Brad Burgess: Criswell will be a real addition next year inside.

(virson joined)

trwyatt: how does stein  have job security

bj4mu: Grimes, Criswell, LK, and Young on the post.  I like

Mizzouman: he will brad......criswell is a match up problem

Brad Burgess: Weir, they get kids from one or two high schools.  Mason has relationships there as well.

Mizzouman: well if linas does stay until senior year.....we could be special

Brad Burgess: Criswell is going to be tough to figure out for opponents.

Brad Burgess: MM...agreed! ;)

bj4mu: Any word on Criswell since his comit?

trwyatt: leo and his coach getting alongany better

Mizzouman: but i talked to a few scouts that said the biggest steal in 05 recruiting was......keaton grant
