It has absolutely nothing to do with Ws and Ls here. It's because he was always leveraging Mizzou for a better job. It's because he completely checked out his last year here (not even trying on the recruiting front anymore) and its because he lied his ass off mere hours before leaving.
Yeah, Anderson took over a program that was in lousy shape, got some of the problem children like Horton off the team or out of the program (though Stefhon Hannah was his guy to begin with). He helped clean up the program.
And then he rested on his laurels for 2 seasons while constantly job-hunting and sneaked out like a thief in the night.
I don't see why people don't understand Mizzou angst here.
Exactly. You don't flirt for three consecutive years with the likes of Georgia, Oregon, and Alabama, before finally ducking out of town on the fourth year, without generating a certain amount of animosity. It wasn't his departure for Arky that made us feel disrespected, it was the lateral moves he was leveraging time and again for raises he didn't necessarily deserve.
