Mizzou Links, 9-3-08

Well this is encouraging...Mizzou season ticket sales have exceeded 40,000...more than 5K above the previous high from 2004...suddenly another 60,000 average doesn't seem so difficult to obtain, even with the cake home schedule...

Derrick Washington: The Man.

PowerMizzou takes a nice look at Elvis Fisher and the test he passed on Saturday.

One play in particular stood out. On a second quarter handoff to Derrick Washington, Fisher pulled from his left tackle position over to the center spot and led the way up the middle of the field for the Tiger tailback.

"On Derrick Washington's run, on the 40-yard touchdown run, he had two pancake blocks; one on Vontae Davis, which is there best player and one on Britt Miller, who is probably the second or third best player," Daniel said. "He doesn't say too much but he gets the job done. He graded out one of the highest of the offensive linemen."

The Trib takes a look at Mizzou's "leaky secondary" and how fixable the problem really is...

It's Cut to the Chase time!!!  Well, sort of...it's not an exclusive interview so much as a bunch of quotes from the weekly media gathering...

SEMO Links!

I missed this the other day, but any time Stewart Mandel talks Mizzou, I should link to it...

On the recruiting front, PowerMizzou gets some quotes from Mizzou recruits in attendance at The Dome...including...

Ronnie Wingo: "It was a really great way to start the season. I couldn't believe they scored 52 points. I loved the way they ran the ball. I talked a little with Sheldon and Darris [Ford]. We had fun hanging out and watching the game together."

Finally, a quick soccer link: the Maneater blog takes a look at some pretty stout battles for playing time...
