Mizzou Links, 6-3-14: Mizzou hires Spurs strength guy, Maclin's not hurt

Darren Carroll

Kim Anderson hires former Spurs strength coach Matt Herring, most 2014 football signees are either on campus or will be soon, Jeremy Maclin's not hurt, and the "Division IV" threat is more of a "New Division 1A" threat.

Sounds like Greg Taylor is a potential qualification risk. That would be a shame, simply because I think there's a spot in the rotation for a true freshman at safety. (Hello, Tavon Ross.)

3. Thank you, John Infante...

...the whole "If we don't get autonomy, we'll take our ball and go to a new Division, but you'll still totally be involved in the NCAA Tournament" threat has always sounded more like a new Division 1A than this "Division IV" thing. Now John's written it so I don't have to.
