  • The Missourian: Receivers take blame for Missouri's loss

    At many points throughout Saturday’s game, Gabbert appeared to miss his target by several yards, but Moe explained that the incomplete passes were not just because of bad throws. On many of Missouri’s plays, the receivers have several options as to which route they will run. If the receiver and Gabbert both don’t read the defense the same way, the ball typically misses by a lot.

    "If we’re trying to sprint out of coverage ... and Blaine’s trying to sit us down right there, the ball’s going to be 3 yards behind us and it makes him look bad. But really, it’s our fault," he said.

    Despite Moe putting the weight of the loss on the receivers’ shoulders, he said just about everyone on the team made themselves accountable.

    "You certainly want to have a lot of guys that are putting it on themselves," he said. "The coaches come back, and they’re all saying it’s their fault. The offense is all saying it’s their fault, and the defense is all saying it’s their fault. That’s a good thing. That means everybody’s fixing something."

  • The Trib (Steve Walentik): Early signing period starts Wednesday

    The NCAA's week-long early signing period starts Wednesday, putting a clock on one-time St. Louis-area prep standout turned Oak Hill Academy star Ben McLemore to make his college decision.

    McLemore, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard whom Rivals.com ranks as the No. 17 player in the 2011 recruiting class, has said he plans to choose a school by the time the signing period ends on Nov. 17 and has reportedly narrowed his choices to rivals Kansas and Missouri, with the Jayhawks holding an advantage. He made official visits to both schools last month, attending Kansas' Late Night in the Phog on Oct. 15 and taking in practice at Missouri over the weekend of Oct. 30.

    "I'm still in the middle of the road. It's like Kansas and Missouri are both tugging on me, so I've just got to decide which road to take," he told Rivals.com last week. "I'm going to give it a couple of days. I'm going to think about it for a few days and then call my mom and talk to her."

    He told Rivals.com he planned on making his decision by Nov. 17.

    Yeah, I'm just assuming McLemore signs with Kansas (and Brad Beal signs with Florida) until I hear otherwise. Having a fall-back plan like signing SE Missouri's Otto Porter isn't too bad a deal. Sign Porter, and we have the most hilariously long and athletic team ever next year.
