How are Missouri's chances? Good. Even without Mitchell, Mike Anderson has a team filled with top-notch veterans and really good guard talent. Kim English is a major breakout candidate (and an all-around media darling, for good reason). Guards Michael Denmon and Michael Dixon, Jr. are quality returners. Freshman guard Phil Pressey should be an immediate starter and the perfect player for Anderson's uptempo system. And, yes, there was a reason forward Ricardo Ratliffe was one of the most-prized junior college transfers this year: He's a very talented interior presence who averaged 27 points and 11 boards a game in JC last season.

He also discusses the fact that the NCAA doesn't want to cut off a path for a high school coach to join the college ranks completely, so the hire Floyd made fits within the "spirit of the rule." Then, ESPN's Eamonn Brennon, link here, predictably argues that the NCAA should now ban the hire of high school coaches to college assistant jobs and to operations positions. So again, he admits that Floyd did nothing wrong, then criticizes him for doing something wrong.
