Missouri men should break basketball title drought in first season in SEC

Missouri men should break basketball title drought in first season in SEC

Sports Commentary

November 4th, 2012 in News

I was 6 years old the last time Missouri won a regular-season conference championship in basketball.

It was the 1993-94 season, when Norm Stewart led the Tigers to a 14-0 conference record in the old Big 8 Conference. So, as you can imagine, I don't remember it.

Needless to say, it's been quite a while since Missouri has been crowned a conference champion. That might change in 2012-13. Actually, it will change. The Missouri Tigers will be your 2012-13 Southeastern Conference regular-season champions.

Yes, I said it. So when it inevitably doesn't happen everybody can ridicule me. And call me names. Just don't call me a chicken.

There are quite a few reasons for me thinking this ....
