He's taking a few reps at receiver. I'm not sure it'll be a full-time move. Maybe for some trick plays or two-point conversions - unless he decides to fully commit to being a wide receiver. I don't think that's close to happening.
From today's spring practice, DT Terry Beckner Jr. sat out drills while nursing a minor ankle injury. Barry Odom said if this were the Thursday of a game week he wouldn't be losing any sleep over it.
If you're in Columbia we'll be at the Unbound Book Festival on April 20. I can't post a link here but google the festival and you can find more info. We'll also hopefully do some signings around the state leading up to Father's Day.
What a bummer last night. Realistically, this team isn't going far in the playoffs if it should squeak into the playoffs but that tortured fan base deserves better.
I can't speak for the Porters and why they didn't go for the vegan option. Maybe they didn't like what was on the menu. My only point was they didn't always eat with their teammates and it didn't go unnoticed.
Well, I don't think he gets fired for going 7-5 but it will seem like a lost opportunity and a disappointment if there's no progress from 2017 to 2018 with Lock and Beckner both back. Also, Mizzou is catching new staffs in their debut seasons at Florida, Tennessee and Arkansas. Those programs figure to be more established by 2019. It's a pivotal year. Odom's choice as offensive coordinator will be scrutinized this year, and not in a good way if the offense/Lock take steps backward.
Not sure if you're talking about the 2018 or 2019 class or both. MU has three players signed and one commitment for 2018. Rivals.com has that class ranked No. 43. Illinois has five commitments/signings and ranks No. 20, led by five-star Chicago point guard Ayo Dosunmu. Neither team has any 2019 commitments.
Mizzou officials aren't cooking up a vegan meal at a downtown barbecue restaurant.
I saw it on Twitter this morning. Brutal.
Dru Smith is a pretty talented point guard. Was one of the MVC's most productive guards this season, though foot injuries limited him to 22 games. He led the MVC in assists and steals. Really good shooter overall and from the 3-point arc. He'll have to sit out the upcoming season wherever he lands. Missouri will already have Cullen VanLeer sitting out the first few months of the season, if not more, so the bench will be limited if MU takes on a transfer who has to miss the season.
I wrote back in the fall that he hoped to play for his national team this fall. I wasn't aware of Santos being injured. Maybe you're thinking about Javon Pickett who had shoulder surgery in the fall? Either way, I'm sure the staff can share its thoughts about playing in this summer, but if he wants to play, they can't really stop him short of pulling his scholarship. That would not be wise.
OK, chatters. That's enough for today. We'll do this again next week. Thanks for hanging out.
