I liked it too. But nobody really does the state outline

anymore. It used to be the thing back in the 90s. Nearly every state school had an outline or some form of their state at mid-court. But really only Texas, Texas A&M, Indiana, and North Carolina are the only schools that still do that today.
I don't think that Mizzou is hiding anything at all in regard to its place in Missouri by not having the outline or "Missouri" anywhere on the court. It's still the University of Missouri Tigers. Just being called by a nickname. That's all part of the rebranding.
