Mizzou Links, 4-10-14: Pinkel lands his next QB, Earnest Ross files a restraining order

New, 739 comments

Drew Lock commits to Missouri (great!), Earnest Ross files a restraining order against Zach Price (terrible!), snitching is a problem when investigating athletes (terrible!), Ehren Earleywine scores Win No. 500 (great!). This has been an exhausting couple of weeks.

This has been as bipolar a couple of weeks as I can remember for Mizzou. Lots of great, lots of terrible, little in between.

1. GREAT: Lock it up. Or down. Your pun of choice.
