Mizzou Football Links
I don't know if Mizzou is going to land either DGB or Durron Neal (or Gunner Kiel) at this point, but I've gotta say ... they have played the game as well as we could have hoped. DGB and Neal in particular love Mizzou's coaching staff. Maybe Alabama or Oklahoma are just too good a draw -- we'll see soon enough -- but I love the way this staff recruits, and hopefully it pays off.

The STL Five: It's no secret that the 2012 in-state class may be the most talented group of high school players in the history of the state of Missouri. A big portion of that talent resides in the St. Louis-metro area. The Tigers have extended offers to six players from that area, and five of them were on hand during Sunday's camp.
De Smet Jesuit receiver Durron Neal, MICDS linebacker Michael Scherer, LaDue receiver Jehu Chesson, Parkway Central athlete Brandon Sheperd and Ritenour defensive tackle Edmund Ray worked out on
Sunday, albeit briefly. Mainly, the five stars chatted with each other, and found moments to goof around and act like teenagers.

The Missourian: Missouri says goodbye to nine senior 'pioneers'
Since the departing seniors’ arrival in 2008, Missouri has recorded a program record in wins every season. Its 2011 record of 53-10 stands as Missouri softball’s best of all-time. The nine seniors have won two Big 12 Championships, a conference tournament title in 2009 and in the regular season title this year.
They have also appeared in three consecutive Women’s College World Series, and Saturday afternoon against Oklahoma, the Tigers finally captured a win on the big stage. It was Missouri’s first victory at the World Series since a 2-0 win over Utah in 1991.
Since Earleywine arrived at Missouri from his previous job at Georgia Tech in 2007, Missouri softball has an overall record of 241-76 and a winning percentage of .760. Earleywine attributed his success at Missouri to his departing seniors.
"It was my dream when I was at Georgia Tech to coach at Mizzou so I could be close to my family and friends," he said. "This group of kids has allowed me to get contract extensions and keep my job and stay where I want to be. I will be eternally grateful for what they’ve done personally in my life."

Why two Mario Balotelli links? Because ... Google "Mario Balotelli." He is Terrell Owens plus true, unadulterated crazy. It is amazing. Mob ties are about the 18th-craziest story involving him in the last year. You will come to appreciate that most of the odd, selfish personalities in American sports are not actually that newsworthy.
