PowerMizzou: Tigers back on the practice field
*Michael Egnew has been the standout of bowl practices to me. He caught a couple of nice balls from Gabbert.
*Couple of nice plays from defensive redshirts: Michael Sam blew up a running play and got Derrick Washington in the backfield. I still think he could bulk up and move to tackle. Andrew Wilson later batted down a pass in the flat from Gabbert.

Post-Dispatch: Teams shouldn't freak about a losing streak
Dr., U.S. Olympic Committee sports psychologist, said there is an ongoing debate about what constitutes a streak and what is just a statistical anomaly. Dr. Alan Goldberg, author of "Sports Slump Busting," said numbers themselves don't define a losing streak.
"What makes it a losing streak is what you say about it and what you do about it," said Goldberg, a sports psychology consultant based in Amherst, Mass.
Still, he acknowledged the debilitating effect that any such funk can have.
"When any individual or team gets into a losing streak, they lose their ability to keep their focus in the moment," he said. "So what happens is what I call time traveling: They either get ahead of themselves and start thinking about the outcome, or they go back to what's happened in the past."
