Don't have your Mizzou-Illinois tickets yet? Waiting for Sean Weatherspoon to talk some trash about Juice Williams before diving in? Well it's time...almost. Place your Braggin' Rights ticket order this Friday.
Funny stuff from Mike Leach about what it will take to beat Mizzou in Reno this fall:
[W]hen Missouri, a fellow Big 12 member, comes to Mackay Stadium for Nevada’s home opener Sept. 25, Leach has some advice for the Wolf Pack.
"The one thing I would say is get those clacker things out," said Leach, who was referring to thundersticks, the plastic tubes that create noise that were given to the nearly 25,000 in attendance last year. "Whatever those plastic things (were) that you slap together like penguin’s fins. Bring those things and have them carefully orchestrated. I really do think that that was quite a deal (last season)."

Meanwhile, the Galveston County Daily News checks in on local-boy-made-good Will Ebner.
Playing mostly special teams, Ebner had 21 tackles, three for loss, and a quarterback hurry. Ebner said getting on the field his freshman season will help him heading into this year.
"That experience helped out a lot," Ebner said. "The biggest thing was earning the respect of the other guys on the team. They saw what I was capable of last season, which helped me be accepted by them."
