Mini-scrimmage reports!

  • Dave Matter: Tigers wrap up mini-scrimmage
    [A] play after Dominique Hamilton sacked him for a 7-yard loss, Gabbert tucked the ball and dashed through the middle of the defense for a short gain — and a crushing hit from linebacker Will Ebner. Gabbert came up wobbly and was sent to team trainer Rex Sharp but missed only four plays before returning to replace Costello. Gabbert returned for another series and seemed fine after practice. The Tigers settled for field goals on the drive as Grant Ressel, Trey Barrow and Tanner Mills all made a 37-yard attempt.
  • PowerMizzou: Scrimmage report
    A few housekeeping type notes. Chris Earnhardt appears to have moved inside to defensive tackle. Not sure about the reasons for the move at this point, but you have to assume all the young talent at defensive end (Aldon Smith, Jacquies Smith, Brad Madison and Marcus Malbrough are all freshmen or sophomores) played a role.

And yes, Mike Egnew is out till June with a high ankle sprain--a disappointment, as I wanted to see what he could do next weekend.

I've spent quite a bit of time in the last week gushing about how good the Mizzou offensive line may be for the next few years.  PowerMizzou takes a look further into the future, at Mizzou's top OL targets for 2010.

To softball, where Mizzou is making it look very easy right now.

“For us to be able to do this, it’s just rare” Earleywine said. “After last weekend against A&M, I don’t know if it’s just coincidence or if we’re really playing that well. But it seems like we’re playing some pretty good softball.”

Just how good?

Missouri starter Stacy Delaney said her “pitches weren’t working as well today.” And first baseman Marla Schweisberger came into the season fighting for a spot in the lineup.

Yet the pair familiarly led the way.

The senior Delaney struck out eight over four innings of one-hit ball. With the Salukis (23-7) swinging through her rise and drop balls and lunging at her change-up, Delaney retired the last 10 hitters she faced.

And to baseball, where Mizzou is all joining in, looking to keep bats warm, and getting inspiration from former Mizzou studs.

Also, Mutigers.com is late with theirs, but BaylorBears.com has an official preview of this weekend's series.  Kendall Volz vs Kyle Gibson tonight--very interesting matchup.
