I know Tilmon is out. I get it. But this is brutal loss for #Mizzou. Not when you were up 13 in the second half. Not against the team ranked 92nd in KenPom. Not when Kobe Brown goes for 17 points.
To go from up 13 to losing to *this team* by double-digits is inexplicable.
Missouri didn't have Jeremiah Tilmon, but this is still a quality win for Georgia.
Bulldogs now have more SEC wins (6) than they did during all of last season with Anthony Edwards (5).
Tom Crean's team has now won four of six. https://t.co/dLTQXYFOtS
Missouri has now lost 3 straight — against Ole Miss, Arkansas and now Georgia tonight.
Last two have come without Jeremiah Tilmon — who is a difference-maker for the Tigers.
Cuonzo Martin on Tilmon: "We expect him back soon."
So we have a pretty good sample of what a future without Jeremiah Tilmon looks like
Lose to Ole Miss on the road? Fine, whatever, not your night.
Lose to Arkansas in OT without Tilmon? Encouraging, but frustrating.
Blow a 13-point second-half lead to GEORGIA? Absolutely unacceptable.
Missouri blows a 13-point second-half lead and loses by 10 at Georgia. Outscored 47-24 over the final 17:30.
That’s now three straight losses for Missouri, the last two coming without Jeremiah Tilmon.
Trying to think of different ways to say Tigers a) need Tilmon back ASAP and b) have to cold-turkey quit this bad habit of pulling their own plug when they get up by 10+. Some bad body language tonight, too. Roughest stretch so far this season. https://t.co/GbmqzwHUAe
Mizzou really, really, REALLY misses Jeremiah Tilmon. He does so much on both ends for the Tigers.
Podcast listeners know where I’ve been with Mizzou as of late. This loss to Georgia does not surprise me, but must mention Jeremiah Tilmon is dealing with a death in the family and not having him for a road conference game is a significant factor.
Here comes the Cuonzo Martin collapse I was expecting. I get it Tilmon was out but that shouldn't mean everything falls apart. Maybe Martin should've recruited better depth. You can blame the refs or tilmon or whatever but Georgia sucks and so does Martin in the 2nd half.
I mean, some of us have been saying for a while that the underlying metrics for this team hinted that its model could lead to a high variance in outcomes. Take out Tilmon, and well... https://t.co/RwPMFIrt6F
In the end, I think Kansas is still a level above this Mizzou team, even w/ Tilmon, but I also honestly hate watching teams lose purely because of injury or bereavement. This Mizzou squad is also better than its last three games.
Martin said without Tilmon "someone has to take the bull by the horns" to get stops, execute, and it can't always come from the sidelines.
This team simply needs Tilmon.
I honestly could be wrong but when Tilmon comes back they will get back on track. 2nd half is not their friend lately. These are tough to take.

#Mizzou from #Top10 — possibly to #NCAAtourney bubble; hurting’ w/out Tilmon — 3rd straight loss to unranked teams below them in SEC; blow 13pt 2nd half lead vs Georgia — who gave up 115 pts last game; weak sched & return of Tilmon bodes well rest of way
Are we surprised? The signs were there all along. Streaky players all over the place. Take out the only consistency we’ve had with Tilmon and we completely fall apart. The failure to bring in talent/transfers is proving to be a problem. There is a piece missing to this team.
Coach Martin says he expects Jeremiah Tilmon to be back soon.
Are they reverting back to the mean? Is it just a slump? Does Tilmon make that much of a difference? 2-5 in mid-week conference games..is that something to factor in?
Cuonzo Martin said Missouri expects Jeremiah Tilmon to return to the lineup "soon."
Martin said he's talked to Tilmon. "I guess he's doing as well as he can right now."
Added the team expects him back "soon"
But three straight giving up 80+ is not a good trend. We’ll see what happens when Tilmon comes back, the season is by no means lost, but this team is SOFT. Cuonzo’s cool, calm and collected style is great, but useless if they can’t find some mental toughness.
I hope Mizzou fans realize how important Jeremiah Tilmon is. He is a shot maker, a great rebounder, and a rim protector.
No surprise to anyone who has been watching. Now, will Tilmon ever return?
Would have helped to have Tilmon but yes, they aren’t that great in my opinion
