Mizzou Links, 6-5-14: ~12 weeks to South Dakota State, and hello, MLB Draft

Matt Hoch is evidently quite smart. - Bill Carter

South Dakota State has a strong running back, Matt Hoch is smart, Brett Graves loves Mizzou, and Jordan Clarkson is creeping toward the first round of the NBA Draft.

I'm not sure about Frito salad, but this gives me a chance to mention how much I enjoyed the first Homesick Texan cookbook. Outstanding carnitas, tacos al carbon, and coffee-chipotle brisket recipes. I assume this one will be just as good.
