4. Scheduling in limbo

The Trib (Beyond the Box Score): On The Record: Bryan Maggard (on MU football scheduling)

Blog: If SEC moves from eight to nine league games starting in 2016, how would that affect your scheduling philosophy?

Maggard: I think the reality of it is is you'd probably go to one FCS and two mid-majors.

Blog: For fans not to see their team tested against a non-conference BCS school …

Maggard: I think that would be the initial thought of people but in reality they will be. They're playing nine BCS teams still if you go to a nine-game conference schedule. Right now, with an eight-game conference schedule, we're technically playing nine because we schedule a non-conference BCS opponent. The number would not change. You're still looking at nine.

Blog: You're in this holding pattern, but you've got games to schedule, right? Have they told you when this will be wrapped up?

Maggard: They understand we've got to get things going here for '15 and beyond. I don't know a specific timeframe. I would think that maybe by the end of this calendar year they'll have '15 set. Could it bleed over into spring semester. It could. I know they're working diligently.

5. RIP, Francis Peay

The Missourian: Missouri hall of famer Francis Peay dies

After earning All-American honors in his senior season at Missouri, Peay was drafted by the New York Giants with the 10th overall pick in the 1966 NFL Draft. He had a nine-year professional career with the Giants, the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Following his professional football career, Peay returned to the college game. He became head coach of the Northwestern Wildcats in 1986, where he coached for six seasons. He is one of only four black head coaches in the history of Big 10 Conference football.

The Maneater: Tiger softball wins first two fall scrimmages

Highly touted freshmen pitchers Tori Finucane and Casey Stangel started a game apiece, and the Tigers defeated Columbia College 9-0 and Heartland Community College 7-5 in their first two fall scrimmages.

Finucane started game one against Columbia College. She recorded at least two strikeouts in each inning she worked, including striking out the side in the second. Her day ended after four innings with nine strikeouts along with one hit and one walk allowed.

Stangel took to the circle in the first game, but started her collegiate welcome party a little early. In her just her third plate appearance at MU, Stangel lined a two-run home run over the right field wall.

"I told myself today I just wanted to hit the ball hard somewhere, so it was just kind of a bonus that it went over," Stangel said. "I was just trying to put the barrel on it, and it was a good outcome I guess."

Better than Music Monday

I'm forgoing Music Monday in favor of the greatest onside kick ever and a Simpsons article. That seems like a fair trade.
