Mizzou Links, 4-16-13

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE

An inspirational 78-year old, a mature, comfortable DGB, a basketball banquet, and a softball injury.

I spent most of the afternoon watching the Boston coverage like the rest of you. Thanks for keeping things civil on here, and if you're looking to draw any positives from yesterday whatsoever, however small, here's my contribution: the 78-year old man who stumbled and fell during the explosion, got up and finished the race.

Now let's talk about sports for a bit.

    PowerMizzou: Mizzou's Leading Man

    "I feel like this year I'm more comfortable, I'm more comfortable with who's thorwing the ball and what I need to do to get open," Green-Beckham said. "I'm used to it all. Just coming out here and thinking more about the game and I can worry about all that stuff outside of football later."

    The increased comfort level is showing. In two scrimmages this spring, DGB has 15 catches for 217 yards and two touchdowns. He has been Missouri's leading receiver in both. On Saturday, he was targeted eight times by three different Missouri quarterbacks. He caught all eight.

    "It seems like he's more of a veteran out there where he's running his routes and he's gonna catch the ball no matter what," Franklin said.

    "He's just a different guy," Gary Pinkel said. "His maturity level, you can see it now. He catches the ball so well. He can turn an average play into a big play. And I think we're starting to see how really how good he can be. And he can be a lot better than we're seeing right now. And he will."
