Mizzou is 26-4 and ranked in the top 10 ... therefore all of today's good links are ... football links?
Mizzou Football Links
Three big pieces of football news:
1. Evidently Mizzou has finished its 2012 schedule ... with Syracuse. Via Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician, we see that Syracuse will come to Columbia on November 17 for Senior Day. That is ... well, that's awesome is what it is. We all assumed we would see another cupcake, but instead, it appears the home schedule is as follows: SE Louisiana (Sept. 1), Georgia (Sept. 8), Arizona State (Sept. 15), Vanderbilt (Oct. 6), Alabama (Oct. 13), Kentucky (Oct. 27), Syracuse (Nov. 17). Fantastic.
2. SLUH lineman Alec Abeln committed to Mizzou yesterday. He received an offer during Wednesday's Mizzou-ISU basketball game, and declaring Mizzou his dream school, he committed quickly thereafter.
3. Also receiving an offer this week: KC Staley quarterback Trent Hosick. Hosick runs a run-first, run-second offense at Staley, and his passing skills have consequently come into question (I assume that may have had something to do with the fact that he had not yet gotten an offer), but I've got to say, I like the form that I see below.
Hosick is an incredible all-around athlete with both good running ability and, evidently, good wrestling ability. He and Evan Boehm had a nice rivalry going on the mat. Yes, offensive lineman Evan Boehm. I think Hosick might be pretty strong, too.
