It will be interesting to see what Missouri can come up with as far as nonconference scheduling is concerned. Alnutt said the first priority is to try to reschedule games with Southern Illinois and Miami (Ohio), which were originally set for Sept. 8 and Sept. 22 respectively. Those have been replaced by SEC games against Georgia and South Carolina.
If it doesn’t work out with Southern Illinois and Miami, Alnutt said that typically another team from those conferences probably would fill in. When the Big 12 changed its 2011 schedule after the departures of Nebraska and Colorado, the Missouri Valley Conference was able to get Western Illinois to come to Columbia for a game.

There were about 12 different parts of Matter's piece below that I wanted to blurb. Read it all, especially the part about Justin Britt. And I have no idea what the context is for the below video -- it was a lead-in to the Indy Bowl in one way or another -- but it ... is ... awesome.
