Mike Anderson did not have that team primed for anything except implosion. Look at the way they closed the 2010-11 season. Look at the way the same players - plus Laurence Bowers - performed under Haith.

He dramatically changed EVERYTHING about the way Missouri played... offense, defense, everything.

And perhaps if Anderson had managed to sign someone in the early signing period during his last year at Mizzou - say, Otto Porter, who would have committed early if Anderson had recruited him at all as a junior - the Tigers would have had the size and depth to withstand the once-in-a-lifetime performance from Norfolk State.
I was being pretty tongue in cheek with my primed statement, btw. I know that there's going to be bad blood between them, but I'm not convinced that you guys are going to be as happy with Haith in the long run as you're pretending to be right now. I'm also not convinced that Arkansas is going to get what they want out of Anderson either, though.

I guess I'm pretty much always skeptical of anything, likely as a result of being a Hog fan, heh.
