“We made a commitment to get Tiger football back here in Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium. So here you’ve got a matchup of two pretty darn good teams. There are an awful lot of people around the country that are excited about this game.”
Mike Alden, discussing Mizzou’s 2015 non-conference game versus BYU at Arrowhead, 810 AM
GH: The game is schedule for November 14, 2015, exactly a year from tomorrow. Let’s hope the weather is a bit better next year at this time. I like that MU is stepping up their non-con schedule but why play a no-count non-con game in November when you might be in the hunt for an SEC title? Would we be excited if MU played BYU this Saturday? Meh.
“I don’t understand Mizzou’s thinking when it comes to football scheduling. Playing BYU at Arrowhead is fine. But in Provo? No. Is the SEC not tough enough? No reason to schedule some of these games.”
GH: I don’t understand not wanting your team to play some schools in your non-con that will make the rest of the country – and Tiger fans – pay attention. Mizzou is a big-time football program now and they need to act like it.
“Most schools drop in pushovers in non-con games. Missouri’s not doing this and I give them great credit for this. Mizzou’s giving up a home game at Arrowhead and then playing at BYU in 2020.”
Soren Petro, 810 AM
GH: Agree. I just wish the game was in August or September when it didn’t distract from the Tigers’ SEC schedule.
“So Nebraska, Boise State, UCLA, Michigan, ECU and Mizzou are on the slate for BYU in 2015? Tough schedule.”

GH: If BYU wants to be considered by the playoff committee as a possible final-four team, they need to schedule up. I am still not sure an undefeated BYU would qualify over four teams from the big six conferences. This is another reason the playoffs need to be expanded to include more teams.
“BYU game in KC also means only six home games for #Mizzou in 2015: UCONN, SEMO, Miss. State, Florida, S. Carolina, Tennessee.”

“Let’s be honest, the Big 12 basketball tournament – it felt like something was missing. It felt weird.”
Jay Binkley, on Missouri not being part of the basketball festivities at the Power & Light District in March, 610 AM
GH: Did it? Maybe to Mizzou basketball fans it felt weird but I think the Big 12 tourney here in Kansas City is so popular it could stand losing any school not named Kansas.
“Starting tomorrow, there will be college basketball every day until 12/24/14. Amen.”

GH: Life is good – especially if you have cable.
