More from Friday commit Emanuel Hall
PowerMizzou: Hall goes in-depth on decision
"Just all-around, they're the best school for me," Hall said. "The coaching staff is tremendous. Missouri's an up and rising team and we're going to continue to be really good in the future. I feel really good about all aspects of the school, both the academics and the athletics.
"That's what kind of led me to Missouri."
Hall is also an accomplished track runner, starring in the 100, 200, 400 and high jump. He'll continue to run track through his senior year, and he said that sport has helped him become a better football player.
"Especially the 100 and high jump," Hall said. "The explosiveness in those events really translates to football with my vertical and 40."

Kudos to basketball for continuing to figure out a way to snag front-page time in August. Hard to do. Well ... hard to do without something bad happening, anyway (since the Nevin Shapiro bomb was dropped a few Augusts ago).

MUTIGERS.COM: Mizzou Basketball Announces The Hiring Of Paul Rorvig
Mizzou Basketball Head Coach Kim Anderson added to his staff on Friday as Paul Rorvig, an associate director at the NCAA Eligibility Center the past four years, was named Director of Basketball Student-Athlete Development.
In his role with the Tiger Basketball program, Rorvig will serve as a team liaison for academics and compliance, while also assisting with the team's video operations.
Rorvig brings a unique combination of college basketball and NCAA Eligibility Center knowledge to the program. The Odessa, Mo., native played collegiately at Lafayette College and the University of Central Missouri before moving into a graduate assistant coaching role for the Mules in 2005.
In 2010, after a three-year stint coaching and teaching at Shawnee Mission North High School, Rorvig began working for the NCAA Eligibility Center. While in Indianapolis he helped manage the high school review process, assisted in educational outreach efforts for the national office and conducted reviews for high schools exhibiting academic irregularities.

EDSBS: ON WOMEN AND SPORTS
This sports thing that we love is not for us. It can be about us, and feature us, but it's not for us. The way sports are portrayed sometimes, the whole thing is for the Boys of Summer and "man caves" and a group of people who see sports as the last bastion against women, as if we will come into your living room and decoupage your tables without your consent if you don't watch every single baseball game WGN shows on Saturday afternoons. Our love, my love, for sports and for the culture that surrounds it and is embedded within it isn't real enough. Or maybe it's too real. Or maybe that's the reason why you're gay, Jane*.
