  • The Missourian: Missouri experiments with running game

    The coaches are fortunate to have such depth at running back. Pinkel said he caught some criticism for recruiting so heavily at the position in recent years, and that the coaches are aware such a rotation would be impossible in other programs. However, after Josey and Murphy showed off their skills in the first few games of the season, Pinkel decided that the depth chart would allow for split playing time.

    "We’ve learned a little bit about ourselves, you know, and that capability of a couple of our young players, too," Pinkel said.

    In such a system, it is more difficult for one player to post record-breaking numbers. While this might cause resentment among the three, it hasn’t yet this season.

    "We’re all cool with it and everything, and we’re talking to each other about everything a lot," Josey said.

    The Trib: Missouri gets commitment from high-profile pitcher

    As a freshman at Good Counsel, Va., last season, Finucane (14-2, 0.35 ERA) threw five no-hitters and struck out 222 of the 408 batters she faced. She also went 48-4 with an 0.49 ERA, 32 shutouts and 579 strikeouts for her Virginia-based travel club, which finished among the top 25 at the ASA Nationals in August.

    The Washington Post named Finucane, 15, to its All-Met team, while ESPN RISE nominated her for Gatorade National Player of the Year.

    Why Missouri? Beyond the program’s rising status after back-to-back appearances at the College World Series, David Finucane said the separating factors were MU’s coaching staff and journalism school — Tori is interested in sports media.

    "She had been to UCLA, which was a great campus with a great coaching staff also," David Finucane said. "But this just seemed like the right fit for her."

    Earleywine, who is not permitted to discuss specific recruits, said the program’s recruiting rocketed to new levels this summer.

    "These are probably the most exciting days I’ve experienced as a coach, these last few months," he said. "Things are really starting to fall our way."
