On one of the most prominent social media platforms, how did the name “Mizzou Basketball” on Twitter become the property of the Women’s program and not the Men’s program?

While supportive of Women’s basketball. . .from a primarily revenue producing point…the most commonly search name “Mizzou Basketball” should, in my opinion, be for the Men’s basketball program.

“Mizzou Basketball” men’s program deserves and needs every advantage it can get.

                    Why do you think every other school puts "W" or "Women's" - zounami MU - 10/8 05:31:28
                         It's hyperbolike to say "every other school." - GeorgiaTiger76 MU - 10/8 06:45:00

                                                       Mr. Sample Size doesn't understand sample size. - Mizzmi27 MU - 10/8 07:58:25
                                                            You're confusing sample size with population size... - zounami MU - 10/8 08:03:27

                                                                                     Yes, everyone would agree it's hyperbole. - Mizzmi27 MU - 10/8 09:01:20
