Mizzou Links, 9-15-10


The Google Reader doesn't stop just because I've lost my internet connection for a while (it's fine now, thx), so we've got extra links going on today...

...and yes, I forgot to set up the Tuesday night roundtable live thread last night.  It had been a while since I forgot...I was due.

Mizzou Links!


    Saturday’s game between Mizzou and San Diego State was not chosen for telecast over the Big 12 Conference package, which typically includes games most weeks on Fox Sports Net, ESPN, ABC or the Versus Network.

    Per league rules, when a game is not selected for one of those windows, the only option a school has to get the game on TV is to show it on a pay-per-view basis.

    Saturday’s game (with kickoff at 6:07 p.m.) will be produced by Fox Sports Net and offered on various cable providers and satellite systems around the country, and it is scheduled to be broadcast in High Definition. Fans are encouraged to check with for continuous updates on providers of the telecast, which is available for $39.95.

    For the San Diego State game Dan McLaughlin will call the play-by-play alongside color analyst Rich Baldinger. Todd Donoho will serve as sideline reporter.
  • The Trib (Dave Matter): Behind the Numbers: San Diego State
    Lindley doesn’t produce the accuracy numbers that Big 12 teams are accustomed to seeing — he’s completed 54.4 percent this year, down slightly from 54.7 percent in 2009 — but the Aztecs don’t employ a spread offense like Missouri’s that relies on short, high-percentage throws. Coordinator Al Borges is a longtime disciple of a pro-style system. Lindley has 14 completions of 15 yards or more and seven that have picked up at least 25 yards. He’s completing 60 percent of his throws on third down for a 162.3 QB rating — that’s pretty effective. On 25 third-down pass attempts, he’s converted the first down 11 times. All three of his touchdown passes have come in the second quarter, and two of those were on third down. He was much less productive on third down last season, completing just 52 percent, converting 43 percent of those throws. Fourteen of his 16 interceptions last season came when SDSU was either tied or losing.
  • KC Star: MU defense just playing and not paying attention what team they play

    Last year, Missouri also opened the season 2-0. But in a 37-9 victory over Illinois and a 27-20 squeaker against Bowling Green, Missouri yielded an average of 329 yards total offense and a total of four touchdowns. The MU defense combined for four takeaways — one interception and three fumble recoveries.

    This season — after battling to a 23-13 victory over Illinois the week before the mauling of McNeese — Missouri’s defense has given up an average of only 263 yards total offense while grabbing six interceptions and recovering three fumbles.

    Missouri’s plus-six turnover ratio after two weeks is tops among Big 12 teams. And the Tigers are No. 2 in the Big 12 in scoring defense (9.5 points a game), No. 2 in pass defense (130.5 yards a game) and No. 3 in total defense.
