Mizzou Football Links
Sometime this afternoon, one of the bigger -- if not the biggest -- official visits in Missouri's history begins. Some believe Dorial Green-Beckham has already made up his mind regarding his school of choice (though they disagree as to which school that is), but to say the least, a great visit will go a long way. We'll see what happens; I'm sure we'll be getting to-the-minute updates and rumors on Twitter and at PowerMizzou...

Statement: "We addressed every single one of our needs with this recruiting class."
Translation: "You're right, that IS a lot of two-star recruits in one class." [...]
Statement: "I guess he's not a Michigan Man/USC Material/ Ohio State Proud/ Alabama Ready/ whatever."
Translation: "I will now openly start baseless rumors of this recruit's drug use on message boards with no basis in reality whatsoever. Also, please ignore the part last week where I said this recruit was the epitome of everything this university stands for. He is not."
Statement: "I'm sure he's going to be the next in our long line of awesome [position goes here]."
Translation: "My expectations for him are already wildly unrealistic, and this recruit is already a disappointment. Should he fail to be anything but a freak in his first year, I will demand his immediate transfer, and question his character in no uncertain terms. I'm not a very nice or realistic person."
