Missouri revealed it wants the Mike Anderson era to start off on the right foot.
The Tigers, who released their much anticipated (at least by me) men's basketball schedule Monday, will play a record 21 home games, including two exhibitions, in the 2006-07 season, including nine straight to begin the season. Coming off their worst ever Big 12 Conference finish, the Tigers will host such heavyweights as North Carolina A&T, Lipscomb and Stephen F. Austin.
After their opening stretch of home "tests," the Tigers travel to Purdue for their only trip outside the state of Missouri in 2006. They conclude the nonconference schedule concludes on Jan. 2, 2007 against Mississippi State.
Four days later, the Tigers begin Big 12 play at home against Iowa State then travel to Texas. For the second straight year, the Tigers won't conclude the year against kansas, for they host the beakers on Feb. 10 and travel Jan. 15 to Craphole, USA. Both of those games will be on national television.
Rocky Mountain Tiger will be in attendance when the Tigers travel to Boulder to prove once again Ricardo Patton is a terrible coach on Jan. 24 and encourages fellow Tiger fans to make the trip as well.
