Mizzou Links, 5-21-14: Mauk & Boehm are fun, and Chase Coffman was awesome

New, 904 comments

Maty Mauk and Evan Boehm have a bond, Logan Cheadle goes Hollywood, Chase Coffman was awesome, quarterbacks are worth a lot of money, and lots of pretty good football prospects are visiting Mizzou this week.

1. Well, this team will have personality...

2. Well hey there, Chase Coffman

Athlon: Top 10 Tight Ends of the BCS Era

1. Chase Coffman, Missouri (2005-08)

Stats: 247 rec., 2,659 yds, 30 TDs

It didn’t take long for Tigers fans to see what they had in Coffman as he earned first-team Freshman All-American honors in 2005. He then broke Mizzou tight end receiving records with 58 receptions, 638 yards and nine touchdowns as just a sophomore. After two straight All-Big 12 seasons, Coffman claimed the John Mackey Award as a senior as the nation’s top tight end after posting 90 receptions, 987 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2008. Missouri went 22-6 over his final two seasons in what many believe to be the best two-year run in program history. And the 6-foot-6, 250-pound Coffman was a huge part of that success.

3. Quite a bit of recruiting buzz

...but I'm struggling to figure out why it's relevant. Congratulations for being so good in college; here's $3,000,000. Sorry, left guard, but we don't really have any data for you.

Anyway, as a thought experiment, it's pretty neat, though.
