Another day, another loss for the Missouri Tigers men’s basketball team that is now firmly in last place in the SEC.
Things are just getting worse and worse for the Missouri Tigers men’s basketball team. The Tigers closed out this past weekend with their 10th straight loss on the season, falling to 5-13, 0-6 in the SEC. Mizzou is now firmly in last place in the SEC, and there doesn’t appear to be much hope for that changing any time soon.
There really is no spinning this in a positive light. The Tigers stink, and there are absolutely no signs that it will get better. You can already rule out any hopes of a postseason appearance. Of Mizzou’s remaining opponents, only Vanderbilt currently has a losing record. Tennessee has a .500 record. However, both teams appear much stronger than Missouri.
Some might try to argue that point…well, you’re free to try. However, Mizzou is on a 10 game losing streak, they have yet to win a game in the SEC this year, and they’ve yet to win a game in 2017. Now, maybe the Tigers are due. Just don’t expect me to be the one to make that bet.

Head Coach Kim Anderson is already under fire from boosters and fans, and rightfully so. Mizzou went from a 20 win per season team under Frank Haith to a 20 loss per season team under Anderson. That is just flat out unacceptable, and don’t think Athletic Director Jim Sterk hasn’t taken notice. At this point, Anderson’s time should certainly be running out.
The Tigers next travel to face the 12-5 Mississippi State Bulldogs. Mizzou currently has a 29 game road losing streak…don’t expect that to be broken against a better Mississippi State team.
Something has to give with the Missouri Tigers. This is just awful, and with the state of the football team, the athletic department has to do something. Fans can’t be expected to continue supporting an athletic program that is consistently putting out such a sorry product. Kim Anderson may be where Jim Sterk makes a statement.
