ESPN.com (David Ubben): Assessing the contenders: Missouri
And what's the best way to negate inexperience at corner? How about the Big 12's best defensive line. Brad Madison is arguably the Big 12's best returning pass-rusher, and his counterpart at defensive end, Jacquies Smith, is one of the better ends in the Big 12, too. Missouri also has the best depth of any defensive line, with Michael Sam and Kony Ealy itching to spell Madison and Smith. At defensive tackle, Terrell Resonno could be poised for a breakout year, and blue-chip recruit Sheldon Richardson, if/when he actually makes it to campus, should join Dominique Hamilton at the opposite tackle spot, making sure Missouri's front four are not to be trifled.

Where have you gone, Blaine Gabbert? Missouri needs you. The Tigers finished the season 4-8 with a 2-7 mark in the conference. Seems they're going to miss Colorado, Nebraska and the North Division.

Because of F.O.'s connections with ESPN Insider, I'm in an awkward position here, but I'll just say that Bruce Feldman is a great journalist and a really, really, really nice guy -- he's given me some of his time on many instances, and I'm far from alone in that regard -- and I wish him the best. I'll also mention that until I hear from somebody other than Sports By Brooks, I'll assume I haven't actually heard the full story. I shouldn't have to tell Mizzou fans about his record of accuracy.
Also: good luck spreading a new realignment rumor, A&M. We totally believe you.

I'll say this: I'm more confident in landing Rodney Purvis than I was a few weeks ago. I figured the shock of his visit would wear off, and he'd end up gravitating toward one of the North Carolina schools, and that might still happen ... I'm just feeling more confident, is all.

So it looks like that Gymnastics facility might be done sooner than later ... now if only I could say the same about the epic construction work outside the VA hospital (that blocks me from easily accessing the parking garage in which I park to go to work)...
