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.
Have some input on the team? Feel one person's deserving of a spot more than someone else? Put in your two cents via the comments section below.
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!
