Kind of an odd day of football-centric links smack in the middle of basketball's stretch run ... but like I'm really going to complain about that...

Mizzou Football Links

How anxious is Elvis Fisher to play again? His dad @FisherFiles tells me: "He's itching to hit somebody."

    But here he was doing just that and he couldn't help himself. A room full of giddy boosters were upstairs at a private dinner inside the Edward Jones building in Des Peres, and they couldn't wait to hear Pinkel reflect on one of the seminal moments in Mizzou football history. What does it all mean when MU football is good enough to go big-game hunting on the high school recruiting trail and come away with the biggest prize of them all? What does it mean when his primary professional life's mission — making Missouri football stand for something special — is so close he can almost taste it?

    What does it mean when Pinkel knows that over the past few weeks, a series of fortunate events keep happening to MU athletics, giving the football and basketball programs maximum brand-name exposure?

    "It's been a pretty good few weeks for us, hasn't it?" Pinkel said Tuesday evening just before the annual Football Recruiting Night dinner with the St. Louis Tiger Club. "After (the nation's top football recruit Dorial Green-Beckham) made that announcement that he was signing with us on national TV, (director of athletics) Mike Alden came over to me and sat down. His eyes were watering a little bit and said to me 'Remember the Michigan State game?'"
