If Marcus Murphy turns out to be as good as he looked in the 2011 spring game, the ceiling for Mizzou's offense gets a lot higher.
Gotta love the nights where Rally Baby just randomly decides, "You know, I'm tired, but ... nah, I don't feel like going to sleep." Everything else unfolded according to pattern yesterday, but she decided to stay up a couple of extra hours. So if I trail off in the middle of this post -- like I did taking notes in class one time my freshman year ("On June 28, 1914, Arrchduke Franzzz Ferdnfnd was assassinsatttttttteed||||||||||||>>>>>D.....................") -- I apologize.

We really liked the job Trib's David Briggs did before taking a job in Ohio, but I've got to say ... new hire Ross Dellenger has been doing excellent work as well. His two stadium upgrade pieces below are very well-done.

It's been a quiet couple of months in football recruiting, but we kind of expected that. The next domino to fall could come in a couple of days, however, when we find out if Fenton linebacker Joe Beisel will join Nick Ramirez and Joe Burkett as Mizzou LBs or head elsewhere. Sounds like those in the know think Mizzou has a good chance. We'll see.
Oh, and ... we agree, T.J. I still think Marcus Murphy might have been the best player in the 2011 spring game. Can't wait to see him.
Can't wait until everybody gets to see how good @mmurphy6 is this year. Only people that know are inside the locker room. Bout to change— T.J. Moe (@TJMoe28) July 25, 2012
