I'm attempting Google Chrome this morning for a sustained amount of time ... either Firefox is getting worse, or it just doesn't handle the SBN platform very well. Quick question: what in the hell is the keystroke shortcut for bolding something on a Mac/Chrome? It sure as hell isn't Command-B or Ctrl-B.

    The Trib (Dave Matter): Tigers back for more

    I'll have more on this topic in Friday's Tribune, but one of the leading spring storylines is the ongoing competition at the receiver positions. Assistant coach Andy Hill said the staff is hoping to identify its top eight receivers heading into preseason camp — or at least the top six who will most likely figure into the rotation. The X-factor, of course, is incoming freshman Dorial Green-Beckham. Or, in his case, more like the Y-factor. Coaches haven’t settled on a position for Green-Beckham, but one of the first considerations will be the Y, which in the Missouri playbook is the inside receiver position that can be filled by either a tight end or wide receiver. The Tigers generally have two four-receiver packages: one that puts a tight end at Y and one that puts a receiver at Y. In 2009, when Danario Alexander was an All-American and set the team record for receiving yards, he mostly played the Y position as a receiver. The last two seasons, Michael Egnew, played the Y as a tight end. Right now, Eric Waters is playing the Y as a tight end, but if the Tigers prefer a quicker receiver at the Y, they've identified receivers Bud Sasser or Jaleel Clark for those roles. I'm told incoming freshmen Sean Culkin and Brandon Holifield will definitely be designated as tight ends, but Green-Beckham is more in the mold of a Y, a position that can be lined up in the slot or isolated to the outside depending on the play call.

    PowerMizzou: Stepping Up

    A few quick hits: Gaines continues to impress. He had another interception on Thursday, and broke up a deep pass to Marcus Lucas during one-on-one drills. Lucas looked open, too -- Gaines is just closing that much faster this year ... Lucas Vincent bulled over Morse in one drill, drawing ample, and vocal, celebration from Sheldon Richardson: "First team, baby!," Richardson shouted from the sideline ... Randy Ponder intercepted a pass down the sideline from Corbin Berkstresser, intended for Rolandis Woodland ... Woodland responded later in practice, making a tough catch over the middle in between defenders. He also turned a short catch into a touchdown at the end of practice.
