Mizzou Links, 10-14-08

Lots of Mizzou players talked to the media yesterday...

Sophomore TB Derrick Washington
On the loss to Oklahoma State:
“They were stunting a lot up front, and our line had trouble adjusting to it. I think that was the main thing. It was completely different from the previous weeks, and we’ve got some things to work on. They were doing a lot of twisting, and I think they blitzed almost every play. We’ve just got to work on it, our scout team will give us a better look, and we’ll be fine. It’s a tough loss, and we are taking it hard, but we ended that yesterday. We’ve got to get that out of our mind and look forward to Texas.”

...

On Mizzou’s drop to #11 in the AP Poll:
“We really try not to pay too much attention to the rankings, but we all looked at it. We took that kind of hard, that we were undefeated and then had one loss and dropped right down to 11th. But if we come back with a big win this week, we should move right back up. They forget about us, but we’re going to make a statement so we don’t have to worry about anyone except ourselves.”

PowerMizzou's got press conference audio, if that's your thing.

Texas Links!

  • Mutigers.com: official release
  • Dave Matter: Monday notes (and some determining factors for this coming Saturday).  Did you realize that Chase Daniel completed 25 of his last 27 passes on Saturday (with the other two going to the other team)?  Holy crap.
  • Mizzourah: Moving past 10/11
  • Austin American-Statesman: Horns are No. 1, but not perfect, with plenty of work to do
  • Missourian: Tigers put loss in past
  • Dallas Morning News: Longhorns want Dallas feat in rear-view mirror
  • Post-Dispatch: Bouncing back quickly?
  • KC Star: MU players still believe they can reach their goals
  • KC Star: Texas keeps lid on excitement of No. 1
  • Post-Dispatch: [Colt] McCoy has gone from skinny to solid
  • Post-Dispatch: Tigers relish facing No. 1

Yesterday was Monday, which means Like Father, Unlike Son and Dave Matter's Big 12 Notes!

The Trib has an article about Mizzou Volleyball's recent progress.  I think it's probably too late for a serious NCAA tourney run, unless they go on a streak right this second, but they believe in their chances, which is certainly a good thing.

Finally, there's been another shakeup at the top of Rivals.com's Rivals 100 rankings for the 2009 recruiting class...and once again Sheldon Richardson is the biggest beneficiary.  The Mizzou commit is now the #5 player in the country.  Wow.  If he's really this good (and if he stays firm in his commitment to Mizzou), the 6'4, 290 kid could have a legitimate chance of starting at TE, DE, or DT for Mizzou next year (my guess: DE).  Oh yeah, and Bryce Brown, who is visiting Columbia in a couple weeks, is the #2 player on the list.  Yikes.
