Baby Boy Beef.

1. Baby Beef has arrived! Welcome, Shane!

2. Richmond Heights defensive tackle Antar Thompson was so happy about Baby Beef that he committed to Mizzou last night. He is 6-foot-3, 295 pounds and has a high three-star rating from Rivals.com. Mizzou has now secured commitments from nine of the 13 players they have offered in-state.

3. Pretty good day on the diamond yesterday. Mizzou Baseball took down Texas, and Mizzou Softball split a doubleheader with Oregon, giving them the series.

At Simmons Field, Mizzou won a back-and-forth game that saw them go down 2-0, up 3-2, and up 4-3. Eric Garcia broke a 4-4 tie with an RBI double in the eighth, and Dusty Roth sat Texas down in the ninth. The rubber match is today at 1:00 p.m. CT.

In Eugene, Oregon bopped Kristin Nottelmann around a bit -- six earned runs in six innings -- and took Game Two of the series, 8-3, but Chelsea Thomas got the job done in the rubber match. Mizzou gave her five runs in the second -- Brianna Corwin scored on an error by the pitcher, Ashtin Stephens singled home two runs, Jenna Marston managed an RBI groundout, and Ashley Fleming doubled home another run -- and she struck out nine in seven on the way to a 7-3 win.

4. Joe Paterno wanted a college football playoff. In 1968.

"I never talked to the team about polls, but I think we should get some consideration for No. 1 because we were unbeaten," Paterno said Saturday after the Nittany Lions demolished Syracuse, 30-12, for their 10th straight win this year.

"If you're going to have championships, you should really have a tournament," Paterno said. "It will be good for football. I know it will take a really good football team to beat us."

In case you feel like comparing and contrasting ... here's 1968 Penn State...

...and here's Ohio State, the team that won the title that year.
