10 Mizzou sports topics I wanted to write about last week

Missouri Tigers celebrate with the Braggin Rights Trophy on Dec. 22, 2023, after defeating the Illinois Fighting Illini at Enterprise Center.

So, what’d I miss?

Long story short, I was out for the last week on a mandatory furlough. That was overshadowed by a wonderful holiday week. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday too.

But, that mandatory leave meant I could not write about Missouri sports. I really, really wanted to given the week that was.

Here are 10 things I wanted to write about last week in a week of Missouri Tigers athletics with exciting highs and difficult lows.

1. Dennis Gates was knocked for struggling against Power 5 competition during his tenure at Cleveland State. Against Illinois, he had Missouri looking like a bonafide tournament team. I credit that entire staff for moving on from a bad Kansas loss and having the Tigers ready for a team that’s just as talented with a veteran coaching staff. Brad Underwood had no answers for the Tigers, who shot the roof off the Enterprise Center. I often thought Missouri needed to beat UCF and one of Kansas, Illinois or Kentucky to enter 2023 in a position to stack a NCAA Tournament resume. Two out of three to start isn’t bad. Kentucky is next.
