  • The Trib (Dave Matter): Spring Practice No. 5: Late push for offense
    Cornerback would appear to be the position hit hardest by the departure of last year’s senior class as MU replaces four-year starter Carl Gettis on one side and two-year starter Kevin Rutland on the other side. But it’s probably an understatement to say Missouri’s coaches are thrilled with the combination of Kip Edwards and E.J. Gaines. Edwards, a 6-1 junior, might be the most athletic cornerback Missouri’s had under Pinkel. Gaines, who played some as MU’s fourth corner last year, is a bit smaller at 5-10 but is already one of the most physical defensive backs on the team. Pinkel’s assistants rarely gush publicly over their players, especially underclassmen, but when I asked cornerbacks coach Cornell Ford how Edwards and Gaines rank as pure covermen compared to past starters, he didn’t blink. "They’re better," he said.
  • PowerMizzou: Tuesday practice report
    Bud Sasser spun Daniel Easterly around and made a wide open over the shoulder grab downfield. I continue to be impressed with Sasser and think he'll be hard to keep off the field.

    Speaking of hard to keep off the field, we might have mentioned Jimmie Hunt can play. On one grab over the middle, he stopped in mid-stride, reversed field and cut around a defender for a big gain. One observer at practice asked, "Who's that #88?" They'll all know soon enough.

    Later in the workout, Hunt went high for a pass from Ashton Glaser, made the grab and was flipped head over heels. He held on to the ball as he hit the ground on his back.
