Mizzou To Finally Name Coach

COLUMBIA, MO – University of Missouri officials announced, today – at the end of a tumultuous week that saw popular and likable men’s basketball coach, Mike Anderson, take the vacant position at Arkansas and current Purdue head coach, Matt Painter, entertain their advances before deciding to stay in West Lafayette – that they have finally come to terms with a new head basketball coach.

Mizzou Athletic Director, Mike Alden, is set to introduce the program’s new coach, Norm Stewart’s 12 year-old grandson, Colin, at a press conference in Mizzou Arena later this afternoon.

“We’re very excited to take this step to return to the height of the glory days of Mizzou basketball.  Colin brings, not only a youthful exuberance and knowledge of the game, but a DNA that just can’t be denied,” Alden told reporters waiting for him in the parking lot this morning.  “We firmly believe that Colin will guide this program with the same intensity and success that his grandfather did.”

Stewart, a 6th grader at Hazelwood North Middle School in Florissant, MO, brings a lifetime of knowledge of the game to Missouri.  Sources close to Stewart tell of watching tapes of “Grampy’s” games when he was just a toddler.  He was active in Junior League programs where he amassed a career record of 10-7 as a member of the Mayne’s Pharmacy Knicks.  At Hazelwood North, Colin logged near-double-digit minutes for the Panthers before accepting the job with the Tigers.

“We are very excited for the direction our program is going to take,” Alden said.  ” It’s just a matter of time before we’re adding Colin’s name to the (court at Mizzou Arena) along side Grampy’s.”

A time for the Press Conference was not immediately released.

Hola, mis compadres. Did you know Duke lost last night? Yeah, Duke lost last night, badly. What a great day.

History is better when you add Gus Johnson.

Pokemon are people too. Well, not really, but you get the point.

In case you forgot to DVR the game last night, here’s just one of the throw downs you missed.
