It's been a day full of random tidbits, and we're in need of an overflow thread, so let's have ourselves a rare afternoon links post.
1. Drew Lock will commit on my wedding anniversary
That's a good omen, right? The Lee's Summit quarterback, a consensus four-star recruit, is going to announce his commitment at the Summit Grill in LS next Wednesday evening at 7pm, approximately nine years and two hours after Mrs. Bill C. and I tied the knot in Rocheport. More information here (about the commitment, not the wedding). Missouri has been considered the leader for Lock's services for quite a while, though he's made a lot of visits this winter and spring, so he could still pull a surprise.
This. RT @Cassidy_Rob: Even beyond Lock, the next week or so could be a big one for Mizzou's 2015 class, I think.— Pete Scantlebury (@PeteScantlebury) April 1, 2014
What Rob Cassidy appears to be referring to here is a likely visit by the East St. Louis congregation to Mizzou next Tuesday. Four-star running back Nate Strong has supposedly planned to commit to Mizzou on his next visit for a while now, and ... this is his next visit. Big week indeed.
2. I ... did not know that.
3. Be there or be square

4. Damn straight
There truly seems to be a brotherhood when it comes to the Missouri players, past and present. More on that coming soon.— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) April 1, 2014
