Thought I'd start a new one of these. The old one is infected with the Haith Aids plus it had the wrong number of astericks.

Do you mean Fuller? How would Gant have any relationship with the coach of a DII team?

Gant staying is a huge relief and makes me a little more comfortable about the hire. If Wright stays that leaves 3 spots left on the 2014-2015 list, any chance we land a couple more players even if they are 2 or 3 stars? Or is it too late?

The team is better off running with a walk-on for a year than wasting a scholarship on some late trash signee.

Do you really want players like Webster Chan, Jankovic, or Bull bloating the roster?

From the Columbia Tribune:

Quote:
Anderson hopes state's best stop running for border

In-state recruits have shunned MU.

David Lee, Tyler Hansbrough, Brandon Rush, Alec Burks, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter and Ben McLemore have three things in common. They're in the NBA, they're from the state of Missouri and they did not attend the University of Missouri.

Although the MU basketball program had some good times under three coaches in the last 15 years, Quin Snyder, Mike Anderson and Frank Haith struggled to land the state's elite recruits.

"To not get any of them, I just go back to the most important piece, and that's relationships," said Kirkwood High School Coach Bill Gunn, the president-elect of the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association. "There was a time when I first started coaching when Norm Stewart would have a clinic and everyone in Missouri would go. You just felt that connection. You felt like you wanted your teams to go to summer camps.

"I think you build that respect and build those relationships whether or not you have players. In time, when those players come along, they feel like the University of Missouri is a destination where they want to be, playing for their home state university. I really think they don't have to look far, because Gary Pinkel has been able to do that."

Kim Anderson was tabbed as Missouri's basketball coach on Monday, and by Tuesday he had heard so many pundits question his ability to recruit that he joked about it during his introductory press conference. After spending the last 12 years coaching at the Division II level at Central Missouri, Anderson obviously will have to land higher-caliber athletes at MU. But the reality is he doesn't have a high bar to clear to improve the school's in-state recruiting.

He inherits a roster with only two scholarship players who are Missouri natives — Ryan Rosburg and Cameron Biedscheid — and only Rosburg chose MU out of high school.

The advantage Anderson has over his three predecessors is he arrives at Missouri as an insider. He's from Sedalia, he played at MU and with the exception of a six-year stint as an assistant at Baylor and three years as an assistant commissioner of the Big 12, Anderson has coached in the state since 1982.

Many high school coaches in the state already know him. Hickman's David Johnson, who grew up in Columbia, even recalled playing some pick-up basketball games with Anderson.

"Great guy, personable, great communicator — just a guy you felt comfortable being around," Johnson said. "He's always kept that relationship every time I've seen him. I can always sit and chat with him."

Conversely, Haith, who from the start of his tenure was trying to put out NCAA fires and come up with short-term fixes to his roster, never really developed a recruiting base in Missouri. Johnson and Gunn said Haith got off to a bad start with the state's high school coaches in his first year when he declined an invitation to speak at the annual MBCA fall clinic, which was held at Columbia College.

"As long as we've been doing this, we've always tried to go out of our way to make them feel welcome and build that partnership," Gunn said of the relationship between the state coaches association and MU. "At some points, the relationship seemed important, and at other points it didn't. Sometimes we might get an assistant to come, or sometimes we might get invited to go to a practice, but it wasn't until this past year that we could get Frank Haith to come speak.

"Meanwhile, Bill Self would come and Bruce Weber came. We've had really impressive coaching staffs come to our clinics and want to be there and have an opportunity to address 1,200 of Missouri's basketball coaches, but for some reason there was a disconnect with Mizzou."

The other convenient opportunity to meet lots of high school coaches without leaving the city limits is at MU's annual summer camps. But there were missed opportunities to connect there, too, as high school coaches reported being ignored by members of MU's staff who were preoccupied with their cell phones.

"When Kim Anderson was an assistant and Bob Sundvold was an assistant and Norm was the head coach, they spent time at every camp with the high school coaches," Rock Bridge's Jim Scanlon said. "They spent time during the day with the coaches, mixed with the coaches. They enjoyed doing that. They weren't just talking to us because they wanted to recruit our kids — we didn't have guys that were recruitable. But they just enjoyed having camp with you. We had laughs. We had fun together.

"Now, it's the high school coaches, and then the college coaches are over in the corner somewhere. I think Kim will change that. He was brought up the other way."

Anderson relied heavily on junior college players and some four-year-college transfers at Central Missouri. Last year's Division II national championship roster was composed of eight jucos, five transfers and three players who came to UCM out of high school. Haith took so many transfers — initially, at least, to balance the classes on his roster and avoid a total rebuilding season in his second year — that Missouri was nicknamed Transfer U. Several of those players — Alex Oriakhi, Keion Bell, Earnest Ross, Jabari Brown and Jordan Clarkson — were key contributors, so the strategy made sense.

But Anderson told reporters he will take a different approach at Missouri.

"I want kids that fans can identify with over a period of four years, and, obviously, if you can get the great players, then you do that," Anderson said. "That's kind of the blueprint. I just kind of want to build them over the four years."

Anderson arrives at a critical time, as there are some highly touted uncommitted players in the state who could be impact players. Rivals.com rates Hickman guard Jimmy Whitt 74th nationally in the class of 2015 and Chaminade guard Jayson Tatum fourth in the class of 2016. Tolton's Michael Porter Jr. is expected to be near the top of the class of 2017.

Christian Brothers College Prep Coach Justin Tatum — who is Jayson Tatum's father — said he thinks the state's best players do see value in staying home to play for Missouri or Saint Louis University so family and friends can see them, but that doesn't sway them "if they see Roy Williams more than coaches from Mizzou and SLU."

In the end, the task for Anderson will be making the state's best players see MU the way he did and still does.

"He has ties with high school coaches around the state and I think values the talent in the state as well as the high school coaches who work with that talent," Lee's Summit West Coach Michael Schieber said in an email. "If he can get the top-tier talent that has left the state over the past 15-plus years to stay and play for Missouri, he will most definitely have success."

Bernie: Anderson will turn critics into believers

Memo to the fans and (mostly) national media outlets that disparaged Missouri’s decision to hire Kim Anderson as basketball coach: I like it. Please continue to underestimate him.

Anderson is eminently qualified to do this job. And after taking some time restore order to a dysfunctional program, Anderson will succeed.

I’ve heard some folks pose the question: If Anderson is so good, then why didn’t another Division 1 program hire him? My answer: It’s irrelevant. This is all about what Mizzou needed in a coach at this moment in history, and Anderson is the ideal fit for several reasons:

He’s a smart basketball man. He won’t lose many, if any, strategy matchups. If you can, get a video of Central Missouri’s win in the DII national championship game. You will see a coach in total control of the game; his timing with adjustments and substitutions were spot on.

He’s an excellent leader who has commanded respect in every job he’s had. Anderson is the kind of leader who can get his players to work hard, and execute the system, and put the team’s goals first. That’s been missing at Mizzou.

He will install core basketball principles and give the wayward program a firm identity, especially on the defensive end. And MU’s chronic incompetence in running an efficient half-court offense? That’s over as soon as Anderson cultivates a couple of guards who can run the system. And you’ll be surprised by the tempo.

NCAA scandals have been a problem at Mizzou — but it won’t be an issue under this head coach, who has impeccable integrity. Players coming and going and using Mizzou Arena as a bus terminal? No roster stays 100 percent intact, but the incessant roster shuffling will cease with Anderson in charge.

Anderson will put an end to another recent Mizzou tradition: the head coach running off to chase dollars. This is the only job that Anderson ever wanted. It’s his dream come true. And fans who care about Mizzou hoops can now rest easy knowing that the guy in charge loves MU as much as they do.

Sure, Anderson will have to prove that he can recruit. But there are plenty of recruits out there who are good kids and good players. They’re not all spoiled, selfish egomaniacs. Not every potential recruit is looking to get paid. I’m confident that Anderson can find enough talent — and the right blend of personalties — to create a winner.

So go ahead an underestimate him. That way it will be a lot more fun when he wins and converts the skeptics.

Reading time, five minutes








Free Oscar Taveras.

The Cardinals are 15-15. Not good. But as my friend Randy Karraker of WXOS (101.1 FM) has pointed out, some of the greatest teams in Cards’ history have gotten off to poor or mediocre starts in the season’s first month — most recently in 1985 (5-11) and 2004 (12-11). Conclusion: long season.

It’s simply astounding how quickly manager Mike Matheny gave up on rookie second baseman Kolten Wong and new center fielder Peter Bourjos. … Bovada.lv has updated odds; the Cardinals and Dodgers are still co-favorites to win the NL pennant at 7-2. … Eight Cardinals made John Sickels‘ list of the top 150 prospects for 2014: They are: Taveras (No. 4), RHP Carlos Martinez (17), Wong (57), OF Stephen Piscotty (70), RHP Alex Reyes (88), OF Randal Grichuk (110), LHP Marco Gonzalez (116) and LHP Tim Cooney (139).

C’mon now. It’s bad enough that catcher Ted Simmons has gotten snubbed in the voting for the national Baseball Hall of Fame. But now he’s been snubbed in the first-year voting for the Cardinals Hall of Fame? This is one of the greatest players in franchise history.

In the 10 seasons of the 1970s, during his career peak, Simmons was fourth in the National League in hits, fourth in runs created, fourth in RBIs, third in doubles, fifth in total bases, sixth in multi-hit games, seventh in extra-base hits, 16th in homers and 16th in combined on-base and slugging percentage.

And Simmons produced all of this offense while toiling behind the plate in the steaming cauldron of the AstroTurf-covered Busch Stadium II. Can you imagine what it must have been like for a catcher to maintain the energy, strength and stamina to hit with the consistent excellence displayed by Simmons?

In Cardinals’ franchise history only five players finished with more wins above replacement (WAR) than Simmons: Stan Musial, Rogers Hornsby, Albert Pujols, Ozzie Smith and Ken Boyer. The voters’ strikeout on Simba is a shame. Congrats to Willie McGee and Jim Edmonds, who were voted in by the fans. Hopefully it will be Simmons’ turn next year.








Moving on, we were pleased to see retiring Washington University director of athletics John Schael chosen as a member of the St. Louis Sports Hall of Fame’s incoming sixth class. Schael will be honored along with fellow inductees Bob Plager, Brian Sutter, Chris Carpenter, Orlando Cepeda, Aeneas Williams, Kristin Folkl, Taylor Twellman, Gus Otto, Ed Hightower, Connie Price-Smith and Todd Joerling. The annual enshrinement dinner will be Sept. 24, at the Renaissance Grand downtown. Visit www.stlshof.com for more details.

I want to wish my friend and former KMOX colleague Ron Jacober a happy retirement. Jacober is the consummate pro and in my opinion one of the most underrated sportscasters to work in our town. … Atlanta Hawks assistant coach Quin Snyder, the former Mizzou head coach, has received positive reviews for his work this season and is being touted as a candidate to land an NBA head-coaching gig for next season.

Hope I can make it to Fairmount Park today. I like California Chrome to win the Kentucky Derby. I usually look for reasons to toss out the favorite because the Derby is a crazy race that has taken down many a formidable 3-year-old. But I can’t do it this time. This is an inexperienced field that lacks depth. California Chrome is trained by Art Sherman, 77, who had taken the old-school approach by sending Chrome to the post 10 times already. So in a fragile field, California Chrome’s edge in experience and fitness loom as huge advantages. There’s a lot of early speed entered in this one, and if for some reason jockey Victor Espinosa gets caught up in an insane speed duel and burns California Chrome, I like closer Wicked Strong to be in position to steal the race. I’ll have both horses – mixed with Candy Boy and Intense Holiday — in my exotics.

Congrats to St. Louisan Bradley Beal. In the Washington Wizards’ first-round upset of the Chicago Bulls in the NBA Eastern Conference playoffs, Beal led his team with an average of 19.8 points a game. He knocked down 10 of 22 3-point shots, had 21 assists to five turnovers and averaged nearly five rebounds. Beal, 20, is in his second NBA season. When he scored 26 points in Game 2, Beal became only the 10th player in league history age 20 or younger to score 25 or more points in a playoff game.

The Mizzou Tiger Club of St. Louis is having its annual “Pigskin Preview,” featuring coach Gary Pinkel, on Wednesday at the Edward Jones Building at Interstate 270 and Manchester. The coach’s talk begins at 7:30 p.m. with a general admission for $10. But at 6:30 p.m. there’s a private meet and greet ($50 per person) with an appetizer buffet, happy hour refreshments, and a chance to gab with Pinkel, assistant coach Cornell Ford and MU broadcasters Mike Kelly and Howard Richards. For information and reservations call Curt Sawyer at 314-401-8604 or email him at curt@sawcap.com

Some pre-NFL draft intrigue from former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah, who keeps talking up the Rams’ interest in Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. As a guest on Pat Imig’s radio show on WGNU (920 AM), Jeremiah said, “Going back to the scouting combine, I had some people there telling me that the Rams are really interested in Manziel. Over the last couple of weeks I just kept getting it from more and more people around the league.”

Finally ...

Saturday is Free Comic Book Day. Around St. Louis places will be celebrating the occasion with signings, free comic books and other goodies and activities.

Many places, like Star Clipper on The Loop, will also be carrying the graphic novel, "Home Brew." It's a collection of stories to celebrate the 250th birthday of St. Louis and its done by local artists, the Ink & Drink Comics group.

That graphic novel also leads off with Derrick Goold's first published comic book story, "Shad's Tale." The Post-Dispatch and STLtoday.com baseball writer inked a fictional, fanciful retelling of the real disappearance of Cardinals pitcher Flint Rhem, and it explores why St. Louis has such deep, successful and cherished roots in baseball.

I read "Shad's Tale" and it's fantastic.
