What is Craig Counsell doing in the NLCS? The Baseball Gods have gotten even with Houston. Blues lose–another “Yeo, what’s up?” Plus Patrick Mahomes and Barry Odom
Mizzou Women’s Basketball was selected to finish fifth in the Southeastern Conference Tuesday by a select voting panel of both SEC and national media members as the league office announced its 2018-19 SEC Preseason Media Poll. In addition, senior Sophie Cunningham (Columbia, Mo.) was one of seven players selected to the Preseason All-SEC team.
Mizzou was picked to finish fifth behind Mississippi State, South Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia. Each team picked ahead of the Tigers advanced to the NCAA Tournament last season, with South Carolina making the Elite Eight and Mississippi State ending the season as the runner-up.
Cunningham was one of three players to receive votes for the Preseason SEC Women’s Basketball Player of the Year award, which ended up going to Mississippi State’s Teaira McCowan.
Cunningham averaged 18.5 points and 4.7 rebounds per game in her junior campaign, and was the only player in the nation to shoot better than 54 percent from the field (54.2 percent, 186-for-343), 45 percent from three (45.7 percent, 69-for-151) and 83 percent from the free throw line (83.6 percent, 133-for-159). She scored in double figures in 28 of 31 games she played in, and ranked fourth in the NCAA in three-point percentage as she earned AP All-America Honorable Mention honors for the second consecutive season.
As a team last season, Mizzou earned a third consecutive NCAA Tournament berth for the first time since 1984-86. Head Coach Robin Pingeton’ssquad won 11 conference games for the second straight season, the first back-to-back seasons with 11 plus conference wins since 1983-84 and 1984-85. Mizzou is 13-3 at home against SEC opponents in the past two seasons.

The fan who threw a beer in the face of Chiefs’ wide receiver Tyreek Hill is facing two charges after Hill’s 75-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter. The fan was initially banned from Gillette Stadium only, but law enforcement later charged him with disorderly conduct and throwing an object at a sporting event.
Barry Odom said on St. Louis Radio 590 The Fan that wide receiver Emanuel Hall will not play this week. He’s missed the last two weeks with a groin injury but is still the team’s leading receiver with 18 catches and 430 yards.
Memphis has the nation’s top running back. Darrell Henderson leads all running back with 1133 yards. He’s averaging over ten yards per carry and rushed for 199 yards against Central Florida, coached by former Missouri coordinator Josh Heupel.
One chick, one dude…they live in the apartment complex in St. Louis. Instead of working together on a civil resolution that would take five minutes to solve, they both become strong headed stubborn leading to one of them losing their job. Its the hyper-sensitive world that’s become the norm.
I think signing Adam Wainwright is a good low-risk, high-reward potential move. I like it.
Drew Lock admits he tries to do too much sometimes. If that happens at Bama it’s gonna get ugly.
Injuries on defense, Tom Brady heating up, it’s all lining up for a Chiefs loss.

My guest is Eli Gold, the voice of the Alabama Crimson Tide. He has more ties to the state of Missouri than you would expect. He’s been part of St. Louis Blues broadcasts and every Saturday during the fall, before Crimson Tide fans hear his calls on the radio, his voice comes through Jefferson City. I’ll explain. I think you’ll enjoy our visit.
Nick Saban goes over the top calling Alabama’s matchup with Mizzou “by far the biggest challenge.”
If you cheer for a team with a Native American themed nickname, Monday was a rough day.
October is Rett Syndrome Awareness Month. This rare disease affects 1 out of 10,000 females, and as few as 1 out of 1,000,000 males. While the numbers of lives impacted may be small, Rett syndrome packs a powerful punch. It’s like living with autism, Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy, epilepsy and an anxiety disorder all in one. Jay Murry, voice of Wash U, will test the limits of his body as he helps raise awareness to Rett.
