First things first: congrats to Mizzou's Man of the Moment, Ian KinslerHis two-run home run in the ninth inning last night put the Rangers up 5-1 in the deciding game of the ALDS.

Next things next: sound the alarms! Mizzou has another commit!  His name is Brad McNulty, a thick (6'3, 309 pounds) offensive lineman out of Allen, TX.  He is the 12th commitment (third offensive lineman) in what will likely be a rather small recruiting class.  Welcome, Mr. McNulty!

  • The Trib (Dave Matter): Yost talks QB, run game

    On Gabbert's injury affecting play-calling ...
    "You take it into account. What we do in a lot of our game, very seldom is he designed to run any more with what we do, especially with the bubble stuff. Will we run speed option? It might be in the plan, it might not be in the plan depending on if we like it or not and depending on how he goes throughout the week. Him pulling it and running it, that does happen sometimes. I think it’s happened four to five games on the season so far. But for the most part, we kind of control the backside end and the backside backer with the bubble more than the quarterback pulling it and running it. We still have that in the game plan.

    "Will he still have to pull it? Yes. Even last year when he had his ankle, there were times against Colorado where he pulled two in that game and got over 10 yards. Also, they weren’t expecting him to pull it because of his ankle. You’ve got to be smart about when to get down. He went up and was actually going down when he got hit" on Saturday. "But he got hit very similar to the Michael Vick shot. He got hit on both sides at the same time. So, instead of getting hit on one side and giving, he got squeezed. That put a lot of pressure on that hip."
