Mizzou Links, 5-17-10

It was a conflicting weekend -- it was largely successful for Mizzou athletes (Mizzou Softball made the Big 12 finals, Track & Field produced a couple of conference champions, and Baseball swept Nebraska), but it was a sad one for the Big 12 family as a whole, with the loss of Tobi Oyedeji.  As I mentioned yesterday, the A&M family is in our thoughts.  A couple of years ago, a player Mizzou was recruiting heavily (Florida's Dante Anderson) died in a similar manner, and it's pretty gut-wrenching whether you have any ties to the athlete or not.  Anyway, on to the links.
