Unfortunately, the alleged assault depicted above wasn't the biggest crime committed last night. The biggest crime was all the Missouri fans who were promised Big XII-quality basketball and got collectively ripped off.
Sam Houston State, who only occasionally makes the tournament as a 16 seed, beat the Tigers 80-77 in the first round of the Preseason NIT.
Missouri sucks and Quin Snyder is responsible. Norm Stewart, wherever he is, must cringe whenever he views at a Mizzou game. Everything Stewart built, Quin is about to destroy.
I know Snyder has support from key Missouri donors, but are these donors even paying attention to what they paid for? I don't think they're spending all this money just go get scandal and underachieving.
