Mizzou Links, 4-3-08

Mizzou Baseball 10, Lincoln 2.  Thank god.  It was actually only 3-2 at the Seventh Inning Stretch, but the Mizzou bats woke up with 1 in the 7th and 6 in the 8th.  Hopefully that snaps them out of their funk.  We'll see.  If that doesn't work, just have them read Steve Walentik's Trib article about their embarassing loss to WIU...or maybe Big Head's post on the same.  That should do the job.

Mizzou Softball didn't wait nearly as long to get rolling, scoring 9 runs in the first inning of a doubleheader against Drake on the way to 16-0 and 5-1 wins.  They're now 33-10 overall.  The Missourian has more.

Not sure what prompted him to write this, but Mike Dearmond has an entertaining article on everybody's favorite new walk-on, Titus Wonsey.

During stretching drills, there is a pecking order. The further down the depth chart, the further back in line.

On Tuesday, Wonsey wasn’t even in the tailback line. Rather, he found a spot at the back of a shorter line of quarterbacks.

You had to be looking for that white jersey with a black No. 12 on it to find Wonsey, who won’t be satisfied being a mere curiosity.

"A lot of kids get discouraged," he said. "There’s always someone bigger, someone always taller, someone faster. Trust God. Be persistent. I’m not done yet. I’m just starting my dream."

Mailbag, mailbag!!

PowerMizzou and the Rivals network have a few new articles on some kids with Mizzou offers: Houston WR Josh Gordon, Arizona DE Craig Roh, E. StL WR Terry Hawthorne (the Illini are going to be very tough to beat for those two E. StL kids), and Allen (TX) WR Uzoma Nwachukwu.

Finally, ESPN's Mark Schlabach has an interesting look at a series of teams--Georgia Tech, Indiana, Syracuse, Maryland, plus a couple Big 12 teams--who reached the finals of the NCAA tourney (or even won it), looked to be the next big thing, then more or less fell apart as a program.
