Mizzou vs The Law

Even though their disappointing football season has drawn to a close, Mizzou continues to make headlines by adding yet another criminal charge to it’s team’s accomplishments. This time by repeat offender defensive lineman Jimmy Burge.

Burge was arrested following a traffic stop in which an officer noticed the smell of marijuana wafting from Burge’s pickup truck.  A subsequent search revealed blast pipes, rolling papers, a grinder, 3 grams of marijuana and a shotgun in Burge’s vehicle. – John Taylor, NBC Sports

Four months ago, Burge was cited for drinking intoxicants while driving a vehicle.

It seems running from the law keeps you shape, but diminishes your chances of ever playing in a BCS bowl.

I get pretty heated when thinking about Missouri in general, but it gets worse when they play head to head with Kansas. So this year I decided to stop taking out my anger on those around me and focus it on something more “productive”. Click the image or link below to download a the pdf to make your own Mizvoodoo doll. You can print out on standard 8.5″ x11″ paper.

Tear it’s arms off when they shoot free throws or stab it in the gut when they go into that psycho press. Enjoy the power of the dark arts as we go Tiger hunting to close out the Big12 schedule.

This reminds of that scene from Caddy Shack where the golf course employees are betting on whether the Judge’s son will pick his nose and then double the bet to see if he eats it. Classic MU.

MU names new arena after college cheat


From Wikipedia:

The facility was originally to be called Paige Sports Arena. This name was the result of a $25 million naming rights gift from Wal-Mart heiress Nancy Laurie and her husband Bill. Nancy is one of two daughters of Bud Walton, brother and business partner of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton. Although neither of the Lauries attended Mizzou, they have made the school the main beneficiary of their philanthropy. “Paige” is their daughter, Elizabeth Paige Laurie. The primary reason for this generosity is believed to be due to the fact that the Lauries live in Columbia, Missouri.

The name was widely opposed by students, as Paige has no connection to Mizzou other than her parents’ monetary giving; she graduated from the University of Southern California in May 2004. In November of that year, Paige’s first-semester roommate at USC charged that Paige had paid her $20,000 over four years to write papers, prepare oral reports, and exchange email with Paige’s professors. After the charges were aired on local radio station KFRU and the ABC newsmagazine 20/20, the elder Lauries stripped their daughter’s name from the arena and returned the naming rights to the university. In October 2005, USC announced that Paige had returned her diploma to USC and was no longer a graduate.

While no major games were played while the building was called the “Paige Sports Arena”, several exhibition matches were contested with the offending name on the floor, causing Mizzou officials to put a new arena logo on the court.

Why does this not surprise me?
