It's Cut to the Chase time!! Interesting quote:

Dave Matter takes a look at the reverse to Jeremy Maclin, a play that is becoming more and more prevalent with each passing game. Meanwhile, Graham Watson discusses just how much Maclin has meant to the Mizzou offense. Seriously, there have been more Maclin stories than everybody else combined this year. Not complaining, just sayin'...
The Missourian has a nice profile on Danario Alexander and his comeback.
Mike Dearmond talks to the Mizzou Defense, a hard-hitting, much more confident unit after last Saturday's domination of NU. Needless to say, they'll need all the hits and all the confidence they can get against OU's offense.
Great random quote from Graham Watson's blog: "Maybe Aggies just don’t like Buddy Holly" (Former Texas A&M linebacker Christian Rodriguez on the rivalry between Texas Tech and Texas A&M).
Sweep! Missouri Volleyball is on a roll. They swept ATM (30-23, 30-23, 30-28) for their fourth straight conference win, committing only 12 errors for the whole match (Amanda Hantouli and Megan Wilson combined for 28 kills and just 2 errors) and moving to within one game of 4th place in the conference. Not bad after an 0-4 start...bet they'd like to play that KU match over right about now. The Missourian has more.
Inside Mizzou has an article on emerging St. Louis junior Ronnie Wingo, a likely star in the 2009 class. Meanwhile, needless to say Robert Steeples, a 2008'er, loved his trip to Columbia last weekend.
