  • The Trib (Dave Matter): Friday Four & Out

    Last Friday was easily one the most memorable, most heartbreaking, most enlightening days in my 13 years writing about sports. This wasn't a story about sports per se, but about a team, and not even an entire team, just a cross-section of Gary Pinkel's latest team and their experiences during a 14-hour day devoted to the tornado-ravaged town in southwest Missouri. A couple random thoughts on the MU contingent: Offensive lineman and Joplin's own Mark Hill easily won MVP honors for his tireless work hauling debris, lugging trees and taking on a leadership role among the group. Hill was a machine tearing through the wreckage. … I can think of seven or eight seniors who are worthy candidates for team captain this fall, and several made the trip to Joplin. One stood out above the rest in terms of commanding a presence among his teammates: defensive end Jacquies Smith. When he talks, everyone listens. … Linebacker Will Ebner has paid his dues in the court system, and I hope MU fans can forgive him for last year's screw-up. One of the nicest, funniest, most thoughtful players that's come through Pinkel's program. … After making the eight-hour round-trip bus ride with the team, I'm pretty sure I heard Jerrell Jackson's voice in my sleep for the next few nights. Jerrell, you better bring the same flavor to interviews starting in August.
