Mizzou Links, 5-17-11

Mizzou won 18 games with Blaine Gabbert as their starting QB, but the recruiting battles they might win because of him could be just as influential.

It must be mid-May. Columbia is half-empty, and suddenly there are almost no Mizzou-related links in my Google Reader.  But the ones we've got to work with are pretty high-quality, so we're just going to blurb the hell out of them...

  • The Trib (Dave Matter): Report: Top QB recruit visits MU

    Unlike years past, Missouri has a new selling point when it comes to recruiting blue-chip quarterbacks, a sudden track record developing NFL draft selections, particularly with Blaine Gabbert becoming a top-10 pick in last month's draft.

    "It can’t be a bad thing," [Maty's father Mike] Mauk said. "It’s a long way away to be considering that, but just realizing that being in that environment" at Missouri, "getting that kind of coaching at that level of football, anything’s possible."

  • The Trib (Steve Walentik): Purvis might not be out of Tigers' picture

    [CP3 All-Stars Coach Tony] Edwards said it's too early to make an definitive statements about where Purvis, who was once also a member of the 2013 class, will or will not end. In fact, they've put that decision on the back burner for the time being.

    "They're focused really, to honest with you, they've got two weeks of school left," Edwards said. "He's got two weeks of school left. He's got a course he's got to take this summer as part of his reclassification, and then after they get all that straight, they'll jump into the recruiting. Right now, they're talking people, feeling them out and really not in a hurry to get on anyone's campus, just trying to develop a relationship to see if that touchy-feeling thing can develop with someone outside of Tim. That was part of the whole de-commitment with Louisville was to give Louisville's staff a chance to see if they can develop that relationship but also to be fair to themselves as a family to see if someone else can do it. They're not going to entertain a list of 15 schools or anything like that, but I don't know if you can say it's down to four."

    PowerMizzou: No longer a secret

    The Tigers now start on their journey toward a third-straight appearance in the Women's College World Series. After Missouri was a sleeper in 2009 then advanced to the series with Kristin Nottelmann filling in for an injured Thomas in 2010, Earleywine said this year's team is in great position to get back.

    "In year one, we snuck in," Earleywine said. "We beat UCLA [in the Super Regional] and shocked them. In year two we had Nottlemann, so we didn't know. Now this year, we're legit, we got Chelsea, everybody's healthy, so we kind of expect it."

    Cagewriter: Bellator 44: Chandler the latest Mizzou wrestling product to emerge

    Chandler, Askren and Strikeforce welterweight prospect Tyron Woodley all wrestled for Missouri.

    Chandler, a walk on, was a big success story for the Tigers. He was the Big 12 runner-up in 2008 and 2009, and became just the 16th Tiger to win 100 matches.

    Askren and Woodley helped paved the way for Chandler in MMA. When he saw how Woodley's MMA career was developing, Chandler decided to jump in the cage with little training. After an easy win in his debut back Aug. of 2009, Chandler (8-0) began training full-time.
