Depth Chartin' Texas A&M
Missouri senior wide receiver Darius White missed four of the last five games with leg injuries, but he is expected to play (and potentially be a difference-maker) Saturday at Texas A&M.
Ray, who also heard congratulations from former Tigers defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, now has three games remaining in the regular season plus a bowl game and possibly even a return to the SEC Championship Game to put the record at a nearly unreachable place.
The bizarre scheduling pattern has been a blessing in disguise for many members of the Mizzou Football Family, as 24 current Tigers call the Lone Star State home. Mizzou has made a concerted effort to recruit players from the state of Texas, shown by the fact that it is the second-most represented state on the Mizzou roster, behind only Missouri.
Any game in Texas means a little bit more to Missouri's Texan players -- 21 on the roster -- but this particular game against the Aggies means a bit more to White, with his experience at Texas A&M's former biggest rival.
If I had to pick my favorite place to play a road game at, it might be impossible to narrow it down to one. I do know that Kyle Field at Texas A&M would be in the conversation though.
Although he'll never know how good a football player he could have been, Keith McGovern got to experience the sport through his brother, who played fullback at Northeast Missouri (now Truman State) and, later, his son.

Kansas City Chiefs president Mark Donovan called head coach Andy Reid the "secret weapon," in getting BYU to commit to playing a football game at Arrowhead Stadium against the Missouri Tigers in on November 14, 2015. The Tigers will then travel to Provo, UT for a road game in 2020. Reid played football at BYU with current A.D. Tom Holmoe and of course was an assistant coach at Missouri back in the day.
Mizzou in the Pros, Gack edition
"He made me excited in the fourth quarter," Rivers said of Gachkar. "There wasn’t much that was gonna get me excited at that point, but watching him got me excited. He’s flying around making plays . . . In the most difficult environment, in the toughest circumstance you can be in, he was absolutely playing his heart out. It didn’t matter we were getting killed. He was like, ‘I get to play NFL linebacker.’ It fired me up."

As for the other rookies, the staff envisions 6-8 forward Jakeenan Gant as a skilled power forward, but at just 207 pounds, he’ll need some muscle to become a force in the paint. Guard Tramaine Isabell hasn’t been shy about shooting — only sophomore guard Wes Clark has taken more shots than Isabell’s 19 — but he’s shown flashes of being a floor leader with scoring ability.
