Mizzou Links, 8-15-14: D-Line Zou, Exhibition Soccer, and AMERICA

The SEC Network launch was pretty damn successful, Missouri's defensive linemen are good guys at football, the soccer team has their work cut out for them, and Tigers are reppin' Old Glory with pride.

Welcome to the Zou

What's On


I think that SEC Network thing went well yesterday.

D-Line Zou

Greg Ostendorf @ Golden, Ray the next stars for 'D-Line Zou'

Since Gary Pinkel arrived at Missouri in 2000, he’s had six first-team all-conference selections on the defensive line. Four of those players went on to be first-round NFL draft picks, and there are currently eight former Tigers defensive linemen playing in the NFL.
Just ask Missouri center Evan Boehm, who goes against that group every day in practice.

"Oh, my," he said. "As an offensive line, we’ve gone against the majority of the defensive lines in the SEC, and we firmly believe that we have one of the best in the conference, if not the nation.

"Going against guys like Markus, like Shane, like Matt Hoch, Lucas Vincent, Josh Augusta, Harold Brantley -- you’re just swapping guys out each and every time, but they’re not skipping a beat. And when they’re doing that, we’re just getting more work each and every time. We’re getting better each and every time. If you want to be the best, you’ve got to go against the best, and I think we’re doing that."
Super nice.
Backup quarterbacks, but not the ones you're used to hearing about
