Don't miss the Black and Gold game tomorrow night. Doors open at 530. Lots of hoops AND a big time dunk contest. See you there! #hooptime— Kim Anderson (@CoachAndersonMU) October 14, 2014
"I’ve been playing pretty good the last couple weeks," Brothers said. "It’s taken me a couple games to get the feel of things, but I’m glad it’s coming now rather than later in the season. Hopefully, I can keep it up." Brothers, a 6-foot-1, 240-pound native of Guthrie, Okla., played in 11 games his freshman season in 2012 before emerging as a budding star with 70 tackles, including 6 1/2 for a loss, and three interceptions last season.
"I know right now that, when he’s scrambling sometimes, he’s losing a lot of yards," Henson said. "That’ makes it hard for you to even get the ball down the field. We’ve got to protect him better. He’s got to hang in there. We’ve got to get open. It’s all those things working in combination."
On Maty Mauk staying in the pocket: "Guys like that, you don't want to sit there and say, 'Stay here. Don't move.' It takes away his creativity. We're always look at that with him. We know he can play at a high level. He's just going through some rough times. I have 100 percent confidence in him."
Pinkel on Mauk: "We've seen him do it on big stages. He'll look back at this as something that helped him. We just want to get it fixed. ... He's mentally tough. He's not used to people wanting another quarterback to go in. He's got my support. He's got my teammates' support."
Maty Mauk on fans who want him benched: "That’s why the coaches are on the sideline and they’re up in the stands."— Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) October 13, 2014
The first thing: it would be inaccurate to say Georgia blitzed often to get to Mauk. It rushed more than four on only 5 of 27 pass plays. Instead, it used stunts with the four it had and brought that fourth rusher -- in addition to the three down linemen -- from different places to up the difficulty level. Mauk actually seemed to handle an extra rusher well, completing a 16-yarder to Moore and a 24-yarder to Hunt for the Tigers' longest play of the day. But he also lost the fumble on Leonard Floyd's strip sack and threw a pick on Hunt's drop.
Florida and Vandy
This is the seventh installment of a weekly Monday blog on Tiger Tidings that will examine the Missouri football team's upcoming opponent.
The Missouri Tigers (4-2 overall, 1-1 in Southeastern Conference play) hit the road for a Saturday showdown in the Swamp, as they head to Gainesville, Fla., where they'll take on the Florida Gators (3-2, 2-2). Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. (central time), with the game televised on ESPN2.
Tigers' homecoming game will kick off at 3:30 p.m. on SEC Network.
There was a mix of emotions after the Jets' fifth straight loss. Guard Willie Colon, often the unofficial locker-room spokesman, refused to speak with reporters -- quite telling. This was a humbling day for the offensive line, as the Jets ran for only 31 yards, the lowest of the Rex Ryan era. Across the room, defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson showed plenty of emotion. Asked if he's frustrated by the 1-5 start, Richardson snapped, "Do you see my face? It’s frustrated, right? That’s all you need to know. It’s frustrating to lose. I’m not a loser, none of us are losers, so losing is frustrating."
Once thought of as a fill-in for the injured Trumaine Johnson, E.J. Gaines has arguably had the biggest impact of any Rookie on the team.
Just when you had to go and say that:
