A couple of hundred Mizzou fans came out on a beautiful afternoon in Columbia, Mo. to send the Missouri Tigers off to Omaha for their first game on Friday against #15 seed Norfolk St.
Kim English addressed the crowd to say that this team is on a mission to win two in Omaha, then two in Phoenix and then two in New Orleans. Head coach Frank Haith talked about the great ride the Tigers have been on and praised his team for working their tails off. Haith said he couldn’t imagine coaching such a great group of guys, calling his players “respectful.” He said they deserve to win because they are first class individuals.
