So Frank Haith is leaving Missouri for Tulsa, which makes perfect sense if he is either a) an oil tycoon, or b) a basketball coach entering a hot-seat season without much confidence.
The headline, like the good-looking man wrote here, is that Haith is doing Missouri a significant favor but only if athletics director Mike Alden makes a better hire this time.
There are a lot of other ways we can go with the Haith news, but I keep coming back to the kids who signed what are effectively one-sided contracts to play basketball for Haith at Mizzou. This not only includes players like Johnathan Williams III, Wes Clark and Ryan Rosburg who are on the roster, but specifically four-star recruits Jakeenan Gant and Namon Wright. Juco All-American Kevin Punter held a ceremonial signing this week, but never sent the official letter to MU, meaning he can (and will) reopen his recruiting.
