Barry Odom signed just one of the famed “Tiger 10” recruits from the state of Missouri. That’s the black eye of Signing Day, but I think there were plenty of wins for Odom.
I’ll break down the class.

10:10 Hear from #Mizzou softball coach Gina Fogue who has been dealt a tough hand
Gina Fogue (Schneider) was named Mizzou Softball’s interim head coach on Monday, Jan. 29, 2018.
“Gina has had a tremendous amount of responsibility with practice and game management decisions over the past four seasons which have greatly contributed to Mizzou’s success, and we believe it was in the best interest of our student-athletes to have her serve as our Interim Head Coach for the upcoming season,” Mizzou Director of Athletics Jim Sterk said. “As a Mizzou alum, who played on a pair of Women’s College World Series teams during her career, she loves Mizzou and has proven to be a fierce competitor. We believe that she is the right coach at the right time to lead the Tigers into the 2018 season.”
Prior to her new role as the Tigers’ interim head coach, Fogue was promoted to the position of assistant coach of Mizzou Softball on July 8, 2013. Her first role on the Tigers’ coaching staff was as the team’s Director of Operations from 2011-12. Fogue played under former coach Ehren Earleywine from 2006-2009.
She had a tremendous senior season finishing with a a .321 batting average, eight home runs, 32 RBI and a .599 slugging percentage. Her walk-off home run won game three win of the 2009 NCAA Super Regional at No. 1-seeded UCLA by a score of 9-1 in five innings.
Robin Pingeton lost her composure last night and it cost Mizzou. Just once I’d love to see Puxatony Phil lose his composure!
On today’s show…
I told you Mizzou men’s basketball was in some kind of a funk. Cuonzo Martin confirmed after the Tigers win over Alabama.
I can see where USC fans misunderstood Mizzou A.D. Jim Sterk’s comment about Dawn Staley, but I don’t think USC is completely innocent in this rivalry. I’ll play you a sample.
Former MLB player Oscar Gamble died. He talked about why he had that gigantic afro in the 70’s.
It all started when I asked Mizzou women’s basketball coach Robin Pingeton if she had heard the allegations that a player or players from her team were spit on by USC fans. Then Athletic Director Jim Sterk stated during a radio interview that players were spit on and called the “N” word and blames Carolina coach Dawn Staley.
South Carolina Athletic Director Ray Tanner disputes those claims after interview staff and security personnel.
You’ll hear the full comments from Pingeton and Sterk and I’ll read Tanner’s statement.
Not sure we’ll ever get to the bottom of this story.
Big winner in the Chiefs-Redskins trade? Alex Smith.
Blues win again, “Yeo What’s Up?”
Part 2 of Super Fans Eric and Matt…who do you like better? Who will you cheer for in Super Bowl LII?
Chief Wahoo was offensive and now the Cleveland baseball franchise will remove that logo from their uniforms starting in 2019. There are names of other pro teams that could be deemed offensive…where does it stop?
I’ve yet to hear from one Mizzou fan, softball fan or Mizzou softball supporter who believes firing Ehren Earleywine was the best move for the program.
Eric and Matt…two of my co-workers love the Patriots and Eagles. Not sure what insight you’ll get on the X’s and O’s of the Super Bowl, but you’ll be able to listen to these guys spew their love and decide who you want to cheer for this Sunday.
Mizzou women’s basketball…back-to-back losses to ranked teams on the road. Are they contenders or pretenders? One thing for sure, the officials did nothing to help out the Tigers Sunday at South Carolina.
Cuonzo Martin praised Terrance Phillips earlier this season for his leadership…but he’s being investigated by the school’s Title IX office. Are things continuing to go south for the Mizzou men’s basketball program?
I’ll talk about the timing of Mizzou’s firing of softball coach Ehren Earleywine…Is there ever a right time to pull the plug on a coach.
Plus, you’ll hear from the Offensive MVP of the Pro Bowl who has ties to Missouri and Lorenzo Cain makes a strange appearance at Royals’ Fan Fest this weekend.
