BREAKING NEWS: Juniors to return for senior season

Missouri's greatest season in school history elevated the draft stock of several prominent junior Tigers, but according to an athletic department press release, all five of the juniors who submitted draft evaluation forms to the NFL will be returning for the 2008 season.

While the biggest of the names returning is undoubtedly Chase Daniel, the biggest "victory" here is the return of William Moore, who likely could have played his way into the late first round given his late season charge. Moore will help lead a defense that will sorely miss the leadership of Lorenzo Williams, as well as add some stability to a secondary that spent the Cotton Bowl STILL trying to replace Pig Brown.

Also returning are TE Chase Coffman, DT Ziggy Hood and DE Stryker Sulak.
