The only thing I can think is that the ESPN SEC bloggers below who didn't include T.J. Moe in their Top 10 SEC Receivers list (but included Arkansas' No. 4 target in 2011 as No. 1, Ryan Swope as No. 3 and Donte Moncrief and his 31 receptions as No. 10), did so because they aren't ranking the "top receivers" in terms of proven talent so much as the ones they think will catch the most passes this fall. People are discounting Moe, in part, because they think DGB is going to explode. I guess. That, or they really think Donte Moncrief is better than T.J. Moe. I could always be giving them too much credit. Hey, whatever gives Mr. Moe some extra DISRESPECT! fodder, I guess I'm okay with that.
Meanwhile, "Uniform Number Day" is a sure sign that fall camp is approaching!!!!1!!

mjkstl asks: With Glaser leaving, we know Franklin is #1, Berk is #2, Who would be #3 if Mauk redshirts? Say we get to late November and so far Mauk was not needed, but a #3 is needed? Would they burn a shirt for a game or two? What is your burn or no burn point?
GD: Mauk is #3. I think whether you'd burn the shirt would depend on where you're at in the season. If you're 8-2 and winning the last two games would give you the East title, you play Mauk. If you're 6-4 and you've already made a bowl game but you can't do much else, maybe you put in the walk-on and tell him to handoff a lot. But probably not. If it comes to a point where the #3 quarterback has to play, Mauk will play. The ONLY way I think that might not be true is if it's in a bowl game. You don't burn the shirt for one game. But more than that, you have to. Sending out a walk-on quarterback that nobody has ever heard of probably isn't fair to the kid or the team.

KC Star: The bill is already coming due for Missouri's move to the SEC
When the fiscal year ended June 30, Missouri did not receive its $12.4 million share from the Big 12 as an exit penalty for leaving the conference. With its first SEC check not set to come until next summer, that revenue shortfall means the MU athletic department won’t be able to pay all of its $65 million in expenses.
Instead, the university will cover the debt and the athletic department will pay back the school starting in 2016. Alden likened the situation to a bank providing a customer overdraft protection.
"Mizzou knows we’ll have an overdraft this year … and they’ll make sure all the bills are all covered," he said. "But we’re going to start having to pay them back in three years."
Alden said he is confident the athletic department will be able to pay the money back in time. MU is set to receive upwards of $20 million in its first year in the SEC.
"Nebraska had to do the same thing, Colorado had to do the same thing," Alden said of other schools who changed conferences and borrowed money. "West Virginia is going to have to do the same thing."
