Here we go, Cuonzo extension talks are starting
LINK

I mean, the best Mizzou can hope for is to have a decent team every 3 or 4 years.

Who do these fans think they are?!

Dude..... we are going to have to get you some volume!

I agree with CM that the players coming in next year will be more athletic than the team we have now, but how long will it take for them to jell together. We still might have 1 or 2 schollies left for next year.
Here's what's left for high school players for 2021 that Mizzou has offered.

We can also look at JUCO and transfer players.

Agreed

I don't understand how a good chunk of fans are absolutely OK with a BB program that might be relevant every 3 or 4 years.

To expect more is not asking too much

If you thought CM was going to turn the disaster left to him by Haith and Kim, in a few years, you were sadly mistaken. Mizzou had sunk down to being the worst P5 program in the country. We had 27 total wins in 3 full seasons! Historically bad! If CM gets into his second NCAA tourney in 4 years, with the injuries they've had, give him an extension. That will stabilize the program for years to come, and should help with recruiting too! Mizzou is a much better job today than it was 4 years ago. Cuonzo has done a really good job, while molding his players into educated MEN. He doesn't sugarcoat things and he demands accountability. I am proud of the coach we have, and while I want to win more too, it takes time when you were where we were!

Miami is in talks(rumor) with him, but I’m sure it’s so secure something here.

Fwiw I’d keep him for 2-3 more years until kimmie is ready.

He’s effectively getting an extension just by making the tournament.

I’m not sure what more he deserves than that.
I know agents are duty bound to maximize the earning potential of a year like this. But I don’t see that this year deserves more than the already built-in extension.

I’m fine with continuing the process with Cuonzo for a few more years. But it’s more just apathy overall with the basketball program as a whole.

As fans we get caught up in the moment, but you are absolutely right. The program was total crap before CM and he had us rated as high as #10 in a 8 week run of being a top 25 program.

With that said, I am still confused how a seemingly quality individual like CM can't seem to sign 4 star talent consistently. Despite his succes, I think that's a legitimate question.

I am more focus on football and the way Drinkwitz is processing the team into a much better program than the one Odom had when he was the HC at Mizzou. This is more important to get one major program in the right direction. Give it two more years and the football team will be ranked every year. That is the key to get Mizzou on the map and top local recruits to start going to Mizzou.

re: Here we go, Cuonzo extension talks are starting
4 years is more than enough time to turn anything around in basketball. We don’t have a single Kim recruit on the team. Hell, it got turned around in one year with good recruits (crazy how that works huh)

The problem is not having a decent team. That’s fine. If this was the relative norm then ok, but it’s not. It’s the culmination and likely high water mark. Next year we’ll likely be awful because his recruiting has been awful. Not just “stars”, but completely unbalanced classes and wasting scholarships on guys that can’t play. We are in a cycle now that with developmental players that maybe we’ll be decent every 3 or 4 years and then start the cycle over.

It is what it is though, he’s not getting fired for awhile but absolutely no reason for an extension. If they do, the contract better be a hell of a lot different than the one he has now where simply making the tournament makes him essentially untouchable

Just as a fact check Mitchell Smith was a Kim recruit.

This team is a joke.

We were -15 with Xavier Pinson on the court tonight. MINUS 15. He’s an utter liability right now.

Cuonzo can not repeat coach offensive basketball whatsoever....hustle, play defense, toughness sure.... but he’s awful when it comes to developing offense, regardless of the players we have

And chasing off physically talented kids. Would next year look different if Tray Jackson and Mario McKinney were back with another year of experience?
