Good news for Mizzou basketball. The Tigers have the nation's attention, if you're to believe Kansas head coach Bill Self.
"To me there is an appearance that there is national respect," Self said Thursday at the Big 12 men’s basketball media day at the Sprint Center.
"From my perspective, Mike’s done a fabulous job. The players are good, and they’re going to be good every year. Every coach in this league knows they’re going to be good every year."
The best solution to finding out how whether you're nationally respected is to follow the money. The KC Star does just that in explaining why Mizzou's different this year.
