Three thoughts on yesterday's steer-related excitement;
1. The next time I make a beef purchase at the Mizzou Meat Market, I wonder who I will be eating.
2. How freaking lucky was that pedestrian in the video above????
3. I cannot take credit for the above tweet. It is much, much better than anything I've ever come up with on Twitter.

Fox Sports MW: Ricardo Ratliffe looking to prove NBA scouts wrong
Through the workout process, Ratliffe is trying to show NBA scouts there's more to his game than met the eye during his senior year at Missouri. Not that his performance was in any way lacking. He averaged 13.9 points and 7.5 rebounds and was at his best in the biggest games, racking up 27 points and eight rebounds against No. 3 Baylor, and following up with 22 points and 12 rebounds against No. 4 Kansas.
"I'm trying to confirm (his strengths) and I'm also trying to show I'm a better shooter than people think because I didn't shoot last year," he said. "Everybody feels like I didn't shoot because I can't but I really feel I didn't have to because we had so many shooters. That was their job.
"My job was to control the paint and I feel like I did fairly well. I've been training a lot, working on mid-range shooting and being able to step back. I feel I've gotten pretty good to the college three and I'm trying to expand my range to the NBA three."
