Mizzou Links, 9-6-11

MIZZOUEXPANSIONAPALOOZA™ 2011

To an extent, I agree with what Panjandrum says in the BOTC post below: until something truly happens with Big 12 teams going to the Pac-XX, there's always a chance that this is just all posturing. That said ... a lot of connected people seem pretty weirded out by how far down the road we've gone in the last few days. I'm extremely comfortable that Mizzou will land in a positive place, but we should probably buckle up. Could (continue to) be interesting.

    The Trib (Dave Matter): Monday MU Briefing & Depth Chart

    Already a 7-point underdog, Missouri (1-0) will be further shorthanded Friday night at Arizona State (1-0). Gary Pinkel confirmed on Monday's Big 12 teleconference that MU will be without center Travis Ruth (Achilles' tendon), defensive end Jacquies Smith (dislocated elbow), linebacker Will Ebner (high ankle sprain) and wideout Jerrell Jackson (pulled hamstring). Ruth and Jackson sat out Saturday's opener against Miami (Ohio), as did cornerback Kip Edwards (pulled hamstring). Pinkel did not update Edwards' status on the conference call, though he's listed No. 1 at one cornerback spot on the newest depth chart

    The other notable switch on the depth chart came at linebacker, where Andrew Wilson moved from outside linebacker to the middle and Luke Lambert switched from the middle to the strongside spot.

    "Just a decision on who's out in space better than the other guy," Pinkel said. "We talked to those guys about it and their comfort zone and what we see on film. Coach Stec and myself, we came to the conclusion that was kind of the best positions for them."

    Will Ebner, who was previously a co-starter in the middle with Lambert, will miss this game with a high ankle sprain. Donovan Bonner will back Wilson up with walk-on Tony Randolph listed behind Lambert outside.
