And here's the other half of your TO BE CONTINUED... links post.

Kudos to Iowa State for moving to 7-3 in conference. I was skeptical of how good they might (or might not) be this year because of all the new pieces, but I think their trajectory could be instructive for Mizzou fans next year: they started pretty slow, then began to figure things out.

    The Trib: Missouri recruits raised in the game

    Yost learned there’s one major advantage when recruiting the son of a high school head coach. Per NCAA recruiting guidelines, college coaches are limited in how often they can call a recruit and his family. But college coaches have fewer restrictions when it comes to contacting high school coaches.

    In Green-Beckham’s case, Yost could pick up the phone and call Hillcrest’s coach on a whim. Of course, John Beckham also doubles as Dorial’s dad.

    "The ability to call Coach Beckham and say, ‘Hey, are you coming up for the game this weekend?’ as opposed to having to email him and hope you get a response, it’s just easy communication," Yost said.

    That’s why in April, three hours before Yost’s wife, Carrie, was about to give birth to their youngest son, Yost was free to send John Beckham a text message to offer Dorial a trade request: Pledge a verbal commitment, and he could name the newborn.

    "He wrote back, ‘Dorial Yost would be a good name,’ " Yost said. "So, I wrote John back, ‘Does that mean he’s committing?’ He said, ‘I don’t know about that.’ "

    Alas, Kamden Yost was born a few hours later.

Other Mizzou Links

The major reason I wanted to break these links into two posts was to shine a little light on the other Mizzou sports here. Wrestling looked strong this weekend, hanging tough versus No. 1 Oklahoma State and clubbing No. 10 Oklahoma; Mizzou Gymnastics continues to look pretty devastating, and baseball is right around the corner. Optimism is abound for virtually every Mizzou sport not named "women's basketball" right now.
