Dave Matter: Pinkel discusses Nevada, depth chart changes
on Brinkley becoming the No. 1 tight end:
"We can move those around a little bit. We had him at tight end before. He came in as a good athlete. We had him at snapper. The discussion is do we want a snapper as good as he is, do we want him to compete at the other positions? So, we put him at wide receiver. We know good and well he can be a tight end also. We just think right now that it’s going to be close. It’s something he deserves and Andrew will compete there also. They’re both going to play. But he's certainly got the size to play tight end also. We just thought it was the right thing to do."

With a school-record 12 wins in 2007, and 10 more wins in 2008, (the first time Mizzou has had double-digit win totals in consecutive years), plus a 3-0 start to the 2009 season, MU’s three-year win total of 25 is tied for the most in the nation during that time period.

Judging by comments left by fans on RGJ.com after the Notre Dame game (a 35-0 loss on Sept. 5) and the Colorado State game (a 35-20 loss on Saturday), Tomey is accurate about the "everyone is down on you" statement.
More than 100 readers left comments on each game story, high numbers for any story, and they have plenty of theories as to why the Wolf Pack has struggled. The most common thread is Ault, who in his 25th season is looking for his 200th win (he's 198-93-1). Some fans -- it is unclear if it is just a few or several -- are even calling for a boycott of Friday night's home-opener against Missouri and further games until Ault is fired.

Our Very Own Uribe Auction: A quick look at where MU Volleyball stands through 12 matches
The trio of Julianna Klein (136 kills), Rosa Medrano (112 kills), and Paola Ampudia (87 kills) provide great scoring potential from the outside hitter position. Catie Wilson has been great at the net, tallying 98 kills with a .335 hitting percentage. With Amanda Hantouli, Wendy Wang, and Brittney Brimmage all available to play middle blocker as well, Mizzou has excellent depth there as well.
Caitlyn Vann has been her usual steady self at libero while Priscilla Armendariz and Annie Lopez have both filled in nicely as defensive specialists. So there’s more depth.
