First things first: Mizzou's 2012 Hall of Fame class was announced yesterday.

Ben Askren (Wrestling 2004-07). A no-brainer if there ever were one.

Don Chadwick (Football 1956-58). An All-American in 1958, Chadwick managed to be coached by three Hall of Famers in three years: Don Faurot, then Frank Broyles, then Dan Devine.

Tom Heckman (Baseball 1978-81). Led Mizzou to a conference title in 1980.

Max Scherzer (Baseball 2004-06). Went from low-control reliever to dominant ace in a heartbeat. Incredibly dominant in 2005-06.

Russ Sloan (Football 1958-59). A two-way threat for Mizzou's 1960 Orange Bowl squad.

George Williams (Virtually Every Sport 1920-21). One of basketball's first dominant big men ... how in the hell was he not in already???

Congrats to all. More from The Trib and

So it appears that Donald Hopkins did officially decommit yesterday after about two or three months of rumors suggesting he would. There is still one other "soft commit" on the board -- Waco's Will Hines; we'll see how things go with him. Meanwhile, things are looking pretty good with four-star OL Jake Meador, and Mizzou evidently continues to have at least a fighting chance for DGB. With football officially over, we move straight into Football Recruiting Season. Should be fun.

You really do owe it to yourself to read Subway Domer's piece below. And if you are one to try to interact with Mizzou recruits on Facebook or Twitter, read it twice.

They're all huge, but ... Mizzou's game at Ames tomorrow night is particularly huge. ISU appears to be improving quickly, and Mizzou must collect itself after hitting the canvas for the first time.
