As you can see, multiple changes to the offense line, but the starting five listed below is the same five that played after Elvis Fisher went down with a knee injury midway through the loss to Georgia on Saturday. Speaking at today's Tiger Quarterback Club luncheon, defensive coordinator Dave Steckel said Fisher could be back at some point this season but it's unclear how long he's expected to miss. Linebacker Zaviar Gooden is listed as out for Saturday's game — he pulled his hamstring against Georgia — though Steckel said he hasn't been completely ruled out as of this morning.

Via Dave Matter, we get a look at the new depth chart. Your new offensive line two-deep: two juniors, four sophomores, three redshirt freshmen, and a true freshman. At the beginning of fall camp, the projected starting line had 67 career starts. This week's starters (unless Jack Meiners returns): 21 career starts. Ggh.

With that explanation out of the way, I will not be overly disappointed if the Dawgs lose in Columbia on Saturday night. This has nothing to do with Mark Richt, Mike Bobo, Aaron Murray, or the promotion of Russ to Uga IX. There is nothing to dislike about the 2012 Dawgs, unless you are the sort of person who gets indignant about a team getting a favorable scheduling draw. No, this is more about Missouri, Texas A&M, and the direction of the SEC. In short, the conference needs the Aggies and the Other Other Tigers to do well so the eleven programs in the league not named Alabama will stop imitating Nick Saban.

B&B Michael from SBN Atlanta. A surprising addition to the team, but COME ONE, COME ALL.

229. Seconds it took Missouri to score four touchdowns (two on offense, two on defense) in the first quarter of a 62-10 win over Southeastern Louisiana. My Week 1 Numerical is finally live at the mothership. This might be my favorite series.

Because Missouri has a habit of producing high-personality defenders who end up first-round draft picks (Sean Weatherspoon, Aldon Smith, Ziggy Hood), and because Richardson might be next. Self-share!

Missouri at Texas A&M. Pass defense is turned off pregame for old times' sake. It's in the options menu no one ever uses. Nick Saban is in the sixth season of the sickest dynasty mode game right now. College football must be upon us because Spencer is previewing every SEC game.

"But those things happen. I mean, I don't know what to tell you. You just adjust. It's a cry for backup players to get ready to play."

At the same time, however, the insecurity has been stoked, dramatically and repeatedly. Fans from their former conference, with a sneer on their faces, have not hesitated to tell Mizzou fans just how much their team is about to get its butt kicked. Fans from their new conference, with a welcoming grin on their faces, have not hesitated to tell Mizzou fans just how much their team is about to get its butt kicked. The step up in competition is both clearly definable and drastically overstated (the Big 12 is a really strong conference, and one that plays nine conference games instead of just eight), but the good news for fans is that games begin in fewer than two weeks. At that point, for better or worse, Mizzou will begin to learn exactly what it got itself into in leaving its old conference rivals for a spate of new ones.

My Mizzou preview is up at the SBN mothership.

#Mizzou OL Chris Freeman has left the program.

PowerMizzou's Gabe Dearmond on Twitter. Anytime a backup leaves, we claim it "hurts depth," even though in a lot of cases, players leave because they weren't actually providing competitive depth. Freeman had been passed on the depth chart by redshirt freshman Taylor Chappell and sophomore Anthony Gatti, so I guess this shouldn't be a surprise. Still, it's disappointing because a) Freeman is really, really big, and b) he's had to fight through a lot of injuries in his career, and you always hope that adversity leads to depth chart triumph.
