Would you like to be Mizzou AD Mike Alden? He just watches his basketball team lose a gut wrencher in the Elite 8 and less than 48 hours later, he's scrambling to find enough money to keep Mike Anderson in Columbia. Not an easy sale in these days of economic hardship.
That said, I'm betting that Anderson will get enough of a bump to keep him away from Georgia or Memphis. Mizzou fans are turned back on and can put the Quinn Snyder era of underachievement and embarrassment behind them I'm hoping Anderson won't be making his decision solely on the bottom line. I don't think Mizzou can match Memphis dollar for dollar. John Calipari was making considerably more money than Anderson. Stay tuned and watch Anderson profit one way or the other.
