5:30 on Saturday!  That's the new mantra!

Mizzou: moving on.

It's the official release for CU!

Mizzou’s John Mackey Award candidate TE Chase Coffman had yet another All-American performance in MU’s loss last Saturday at #1 Texas. The senior from Peculiar, Mo. caught 12 passes for 140 yards and 1 TD, and was seen breaking tackles, hurdling defenders and making difficult catches in traffic all night long. The receptions and yards marked a career high for Coffman, who also made history with his 3rd catch, which gave him the MU career record of 204, surpassing the previous mark of 203 formerly held by TE Martin Rucker (2004-07). Coffman enters Saturday’s game against Colorado with an MU-best 213 career receptions for 2,366 yards (2nd on MU’s career list) and 24 TDs (1st on MU’s career list).

Coffman has 23 catches for 244 yards and 1 TD in his last 2 outings, after catching 11 passes for 104 yards against Oklahoma State two games ago. One of those grabs included a spectacular catch on MU’s opening drive where he leaped backwards near the left sideline to snare a ball out of the air with one hand and bring it in for the catch – all while the OSU covering him was being flagged for pass interference.    The gain went for 21 yards and extended MU’s drive that resulted in a short field goal for a 3-0 lead.

If that catch isn’t on your local neighborhood highlight reel, just give us a call and we’ll e-mail a clip to you, it’s a definite must-see!

More Colorado Links!

  • Denver Post: [True Freshman QB Tyler] Hansen to play more at Missouri.  I welcome that.
  • Boulder Daily Camera: Game in Hansen's blood, too
  • Boulder Daily Camera: Dual QBs has paid off in Big 12.  Yes, but in most of the examples, one QB was a senior, one a freshman.  Cody Nolte-Hawkins is a sophomore.  You're begging for a 2.5-year QB controversy now.

It's Like Father, Unlike Son!

Once again, yesterday was Monday, which meant Dave Matter's Big 12 Notes and Press Conference audio from PowerMizzou.  There's also a nice Missourian article talking about the interconnected fraternity of Big 12 coaches (Stoops-Mangino-Leach).

Finally...wherefore art thou, Willy Mo?
