Practice Reports

  • The Trib (Dave Matter): BTS Camp Report: Strap 'Em Up
    Rather than highlight a true freshman, a redshirt gets mention here: SLB Andrew Wilson. Mostly known for being the son of former MU LB Jay Wilson, the second-team player is earning his own reputation. "He is the hardest hitter," WR T.J. Moe said of Wilson. "Will Ebner, he’s the guy that looks the best, but Andrew hurts my head more than anybody else. He just knocks you out." The Tigers typically go no more than five deep in the linebacker playing rotation, and Wilson appears to be pushing for a spot in that group.
  • The Trib: Tigers put on the pads, get serious
  • PowerMizzou: Getting physical
    Brad Madison picked up a sack. It is apparent to me he's the third defensive end and don't rule out the possibility that he pushes Jacquies Smith seriously by the end of camp.

    Tristen Holt--who is really thick for a cornerback (not in a bad way)--made his presence felt lighting up Stricker on a swing pass in the flat.

  • Blog: Defense Wins in First Day of Full-Pad Action for Mizzou
    Blaine Gabbert tried to hit TB Derrick Washington on a screen, but FS Jasper Simmons had it diagnosed and came up to snuff out the play for no gain. On the next snap, sophomore LB Zaviar Gooden used his eye-popping quickness to close like a shot out of a cannon to bring down WR Jerrell Jackson for little to no gain on a quick out he caught from Gabbert. After the tackle tandem of Dominique Hamilton and Terrell Resonno combined for a sack of Gabbert, Washington got a big gain up the middle on a nice cutback run. But the defense responded with two more plays, as LB Luke Lambert applied tight coverage to TE Michael Egnew, leaving a small window that Blaine Gabbert couldn't fit the ball into, with the pass going incomplete. The series ended with Simmons closing to snuff out a sweep play for nothing.
  • Fox Sports Midwest: Tiger Camp Notebook: August 9
    True freshman CB Tristan Holt and RB Marcus Murphy have been practicing with the punt and kick return teams receiving kicks.

    Coach Pinkel addressed the possibility of using a true freshman as a returner.

    "You'd rather not have a first-year player at the punt return position," Coach Pinkel replied. "You'd rather not have a first first-year player as a punter or a kicker...Those are just such critical positions.
