"I do think Blaine Gabbert is a Top 10 pick. All you have to do is see the ball come out of his hand. He's got a very quick, strong arm, prototype size. He's over 6'4", 235 pounds, a finance major, so you know he has intelligence. He has speed. I mean, Gabbert ran very well at the combine. He's elusive back there. His scrambling and play making ability I think will be very enticing. Once again, here's a junior quarterback that comes from a very unique, different style of spread offense at Missouri where he's been in the no‑back set, and the shotgun predominantly. But I think his physical talents are very noticeable to everybody."

If you watched Sunday's thriller between Missouri and Oklahoma, you saw Tigers ace Chelsea Thomas make a strong case that she is the pitcher best equipped to carry a team for a week in Oklahoma City this June. The redshirt sophomore (and don't think Big 12 coaches don't wince every time they're reminded she's around for two more seasons) struck out 17 against one walk in 11 innings in a 1-0 win against a rival on national television -- the day after she went all nine innings and struck out another 17 batters in a 3-2 win against the Sooners. She was good as a freshman, but the changeup she's mastered this season puts her on par with some of the best of recent seasons.
