KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A rushed Alex Smith is a bad Alex Smith. Actually, let's clarify that a little: A rushed Alex Smith is a mediocre Alex Smith.

Nonconference games could show whether Mizzou is NCAA tourney material

If challenging neutral-site games are the best way to prepare for the postseason, Missouri basketball should be in good shape.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- To paraphrase that ancient philosopher Jim Croce, you don't step on Superman's cape. You don't spit into the wind. You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger.

One rule I did give myself for this column and life in general? Avoid mentioning the word “twerk” at all costs. There...

James Shields takes the mound for the Royals...
