Last year was Mitchell Smith 1st year after recovering from 2 major knee surgeries in 1 year. I don't think people have any idea of not only the physical but the mental recovery that is needed and how long that takes. That's not an excuse but a reality. No one is saying he is a star level player but his ceiling to me was always a very solid role player. So that being the case the drop off in recovery is relative to those expectations. Outstanding players are always better their 2nd year of returning to play then their 1st even after 1 surgery. I have 1st hand experience with this. That's why I cut him a little slack. To those that say he should have been shown the door, that would have shown a whole lot of lack of class for Nizzou to do that after a player (any player) had gone through that.

     I'm hoping he gets beat out by one of the new guys - Jeff85 MU - 7/11 08:40:52
     we heard the same stuff last year about him - NWMizzouFan MU - 7/10 09:40:45
     He only had like 3 games where he was slightly below average - StaleyTiger MU - 7/9 17:33:03
          He’s 1 of the players Cuonzo has pointed out recently - wu-tangtiger MU - 7/9 17:47:13
               Didn't he get pointed out as making progress last off-season - StaleyTiger MU - 7/10 07:10:44
                    I think that's the best we should hope from him - longtimereader MU - 7/10 23:09:50
                    And he was better than he was before - alwaysright MU - 7/10 11:42:39
                    There is no way he will be a Puryear type of player - FIJItiger MU - 7/10 08:56:56
                         I can't read the tweet due to a firewall but I will - TheWildcat STL - 7/10 09:26:33
                              No way Smith is more skilled than Puryear. - tgr MU - 7/10 09:46:51
                                   Because Smith lacks so much strength, he is a liability - TheWildcat STL - 7/10 09:50:01
                                        Puryear took some forced shots for sure but that doesn't - tgr MU - 7/10 09:54:00
                                             Puryear got the minutes over Smith because he - TheWildcat STL - 7/10 09:55:08
                              one of the few times I disagree with your take on Mizzou - NWMizzouFan MU - 7/10 09:41:55
                                   Smith is a better shooter, ball handler, and quicker - TheWildcat STL - 7/10 09:47:11
                                        I disagree with all 3 of things. I can't recall a single - tgr MU - 7/10 09:52:31
                                             Then you either didn’t watch or choose to not remember but - alwaysright MU - 7/11 05:06:29
                                             offense isn’t what held Smith back - wu-tangtiger MU - 7/10 10:04:31
                                                  Puryear is definitely a better defender. Smith gets punished - TheWildcat STL - 7/10 10:08:01
                                             And produced less per minute than Smith. As I said below - TheWildcat STL - 7/10 09:54:31
                              The biggest thing holding Mitch back right now - wu-tangtiger MU - 7/10 09:41:51
                                   Something in all of these equations everyone is missing - longtimereader MU - 7/10 23:06:49
                                   he is very weak physically. He gets abused on defense - NWMizzouFan MU - 7/10 09:42:48
                                        I think it’s the opposite he’s lost or out of position - wu-tangtiger MU - 7/10 09:47:14
                                             Which is exactly the role Puryear was suited for. (nm) - TheWildcat STL - 7/10 09:50:18
                                             I dont get why coach would keep him around. You would - NWMizzouFan MU - 7/10 09:49:02
                                                  you need guys on the bench that are ok - wu-tangtiger MU - 7/10 10:11:40
                                                  In minutes played he had more blocks, better fg% better - TheWildcat STL - 7/10 09:53:14
                                                       Mitch also had 1 of the worst +/- on the team - wu-tangtiger MU - 7/10 10:08:23
                                                            No argument from me. He can't defend (nm) - TheWildcat STL - 7/10 10:14:00
                                                                 I think he can, he just has to do better at sticking - wu-tangtiger MU - 7/10 10:23:07
                                                                 its mostly because he is so physically weak. I really wonder - NWMizzouFan MU - 7/10 10:19:25
                                                                      Reports are that he’s 1 of the hardest workers - wu-tangtiger MU - 7/10 10:26:54
                                                                           Physically he and Claxton or very much the same(nm) - longtimereader MU - 7/10 23:15:42
                                                       And by the way, I am conceding that Smith is not good. - TheWildcat STL - 7/10 09:58:12
                              I disagree with that. Puryear was a lot more skilled than - StaleyTiger MU - 7/10 09:39:45
                                   depends what you are talking about with skill - wu-tangtiger MU - 7/10 09:45:25
                                        I think Puryear has a better shooting stroke too. - StaleyTiger MU - 7/10 09:50:01
                                             When have you ever seen Puryear pass? Most shots - TheWildcat STL - 7/10 09:51:00
                    Not the same way that Cuonzo has talked about him this summe - wu-tangtiger MU - 7/10 07:14:51
                         I forgot about Kobe Brown. I think 4th or 5th big is - StaleyTiger MU - 7/10 07:17:03
               And to put out a tweet in his regard. - longtimereader MU - 7/9 23:09:40
