Brandon Rush
Bradley Beale

Those are all players from the state of Missouri that went elsewhere. Add a couple of those guys to the mix, and you're talking about one of the top programs in the country every year. We have basically missed out on a lottery pick caliber player per year on average since Mike Anderson was hired.
Forget BJ Young as well. But go back to the 90s and early 00s.

Jahidi White
Derek Hood
Tyronn Lue
Ryan Robertson
Chris Carrawell
Loren Woods
Cookie Belcher
Larry Hughes
JaRon Rush
Robert Archbald
David Lee

1998 season - MU could have had:
Ryan Robertson
Cookie Belcher
Chris Carrawell
Derek Hood
Loren Woods
JaRon Rush as 6th man

That is probably a Final Four/National Championship type squad.
