Afternoon links and overflow thread: Drew Lock, brotherhood, hangouts, and the spreadbone

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Missouri football has a huge week of recruiting coming up, with the potential commitments of both Nate Strong and Drew Lock. Plus: Gary Pinkel's hanging out, Justin Britt is flexible, and long live the spread bone.

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.

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

5. Long live the spreadbone
