KC Star (Campus Corner): Stone, Underwood: "Warm Up"
John Underwood and Tyler Stone - a couple of freshman forwards who have played a collective seven minutes since the start of Big 12 Conference play - may actually have to wear uniforms under those Missouri warmups when the Tigers take on Clemson on Friday.
MU Coach Mike Anderson - and starting forwards Keith Ramsey and Laurence Bowers - either hinted or just came out and predicted that the 6-9 Underwood and 6-7 Stone would see a few minutes against Clemson.
"John Underwood," Anderson said, "you’ll see him out there maybe one or two minutes at a time, hopefully to give (relief to) guys like Keith Ramsey and Laurence Bowers."

The Trib (Dave Matter): Tigers feel the sunshine, finally
At some point in their careers, the young players manning the offensive tackle spots are going to count this spring as a learning experience. For now, though, DE Aldon Smith will keep smearing them with tread marks. Smith burst into the backfield during 11-on-11 drills and dropped a reverse to WR Jerrell Jackson for a loss of at least 12 yards. I'm certain Smith will get the 2000 Justin Smith treatment from opposing offenses this year. They'll stick a tight end on his side of the line and chip away with a running back, begging for another MU lineman to exploit the extra attention on No. 85.
PowerMizzou: Thursday practice report
*Zaviar Gooden absolutely laid out Jaleel Clark on a pass over the middle. Clark made the catch, but it was a big price to pay for a one-yard game. Gooden is a guy that a lot of us are starting to think could be one heck of a player.
*Speaking of guys that catch your eye, freshman tight end Eric Waters more than passes the eyeball test. Physically, he looks ready to play. I wouldn't necessarily count on a redshirt for him. More proof that you don't have to be the most heralded recruit to make a difference early.
