    KC Star: MU notebook: Pinkel talks to KC Tiger Club

    On quarterback Corbin Berkstresser, who was pulled in the second half of MU’s 33-10 win over Kentucky on Saturday after throwing two interceptions:

    “I can tell you stories about different quarterbacks I’ve had that played a lot worse games than that and went on to play in the NFL,” Pinkel said.

    On freshman receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, who caught a career-high seven passes for 25 yards on Saturday:

    “It’s real important to get him involved in the game, just because he’s practicing so well,” Pinkel said.

    PowerMizzou: Tuesday Tiger Notebook

    Franklin was not asked to do much against the Wildcats. Pinkel said Mizzou was intentionally conservative with the gameplan to protect Franlkin's health. That is unlikely to be the plan this weekend.
"He really made great strides last week. This week, we expect him to get better and better and better," Gary Pinkel said. "We'll determine what we do with him, what we ask him to do Saturday. We expect him to be very close to 100 percent as far as allowing us to call plays."

    "I feel like on Tuesday I'll be able to move around a lot better, actually working on cutting more at full speed and kind of go from there," Franklin said.

    Franklin may not be 100 percent just yet, but he's as close as he's been in a long time.

    "Maybe the first game of the season against Southeastern Louisiana, although I know my shoulder was still a little sore from doing rehab and surgery, but it was more sore than hurt," Franklin said when asked the last time he played at full strength. "I really can't remember the last time I was playing without the shoulder."

    The Maneater: Henry Josey on Marcus Lattimore: 'That killed a lot inside me'

    Josey said he intends to reach out to the downed star to offer advice and encouragement.

    “Being through it, the mental process of it is the hardest thing to get through,” Josey said. “You can’t stay negative about it, you can’t stay on yourself about it or you won’t ever come back. And that’s the hardest thing. You have to keep a mentality that, ‘Yeah, I’ll be back,’ and keep people around you that are going to keep motivating you and pushing you.”

    Josey said he wouldn’t blame Lattimore if he decided to never again strap up his chinstrap. Football was not on his mind after suffering his own devastating injury that fateful Saturday afternoon against Texas.

    “You have to go with the process and see how it works out for you,” Josey said. “I’m sure he’ll be smart about it, and I know he’ll come back from it.”

    Post-Dispatch: Phil Pressey is "the first of his kind"

    Natural as it might seem now for a player whose father, Paul, played and now coaches in the NBA, as a freshman two years ago Pressey’s flashy game could be as exasperating as it was exhilarating. 

    “Some plays he makes, you wonder why,” MU forward Laurence Bowers said then. 

    Looking back now, Bowers says: “He was very erratic … He was a good point guard, but sometimes he forced the issue.”

    A smidgen of that was on teammates who weren’t always ready for the astounding array of ways and angles from which Pressey might try to get them the ball.

    But most of it was his own trial and considerable error as he adjusted to collegiate play and learned how to harness his strengths.

    When he was asked about his keen peripheral vision that season, for instance, Pressey suggested it could be a nuisance.

    “The crazy thing about it is... when I’m shooting free throws, I can, like, see people in the crowd that are distracting me,” he said. “I think it’s weird that I do that.”
