When it launches on Aug. 21 of this year, the SEC Network is going to forever change how fans of the Southeastern Conference follow their teams, in addition to helping secure and strengthen the future of the nation's best conference.

The 24/7 network will provide unprecedented coverage of all league sports, from studio programming to at least 450 live events every year. That will include more than 100 men's basketball games, many of which will feature Mizzou.

Although a schedule for next season won't be released until later, a look at this year's MU men's basketball slate gives an idea of how the SEC Network will affect fans' ability to watch games it the future.

In past years, Tiger games not picked up by national television have been aired statewide on outlets like the Mizzou Sports Network, Metro Sports, Fox Sports Midwest and the syndicated SEC TV package. The new SEC Network is expected to replace all of these options, as you can see in the hypothetical 2013-14 schedule below.

School has been out for nearly two weeks here at Mizzou, so campus is looking like a bit of a ghost town. On Saturday, however, there will be plenty of action to keep Tiger fans busy. Here's a full rundown:
The first decade of this latest century featured outstanding successes by Mizzou student-athletes in all sports, both in the classroom and on the field of competition. Today, we celebrate the decade that was by paying tribute to the Mizzou Athletics All-Decade Team (2000-09), as selected by MUTigers.com. For each sport, a performer of the decade has been featured, as well as two to three honorable mention selections.

Tiger fans now have the opportunity to select their top male and female athlete of the decade, in a special fan vote. Vote now on the men's team, and you'll be directed to the women's vote next.

Beginning today, the front page of mutigers.com has been changed in an effort to promote donations to the American Red Cross relief effort in Haiti, which has been devastated by a series of earthquakes.

Mizzou fans are encouraged to donate before and after the Women's basketball game against Baylor at 1pm and the Men's game against Nebraska at 5pm at Mizzou Arena.

For fans that cannot attend either game, the University of Missouri encourages fans to donate directly to the American Red Cross, by calling 1-800-RED CROSS or by texting "HAITI" to 90999 ($10 will be charged to your phone bill).
Mizzou Athletics welcomes participation on our blog and encourages you to interact with us often. We hope to provide a forum for dialogue among the many diverse voices of our university, and we encourage comments about the content you find here.

Welcome to the first post of what we hope will be another forum for us to engage with our fans. This afternoon, we added blogging capability to mutigers.com, thanks to our friends at CBS College Sports.

We'll have much more in the coming days, weeks, and months. Go Tigers!
