Mizzou Soccer beats LSU
The Los Angeles Lakers announced on Tuesday that they have signed former Mizzou Basketball standout Jabari Brown to their training camp roster.
2. Sheldon Richardson, DT, Jets: His team didn’t get the win on Monday night, but Richardson and the Jets’ "Sons of Anarchy" defensive line gave Bears quarterback Jay Cutler all he could handle. Richardson finished with two tackles, a sack, a pass deflection and two quarterback hits. Pro Football Focus rated Monday’s game as Richardson’s best pass-rushing performance of his two-year NFL career. "The Bears made limited use of their ground attack but that didn’t keep Richardson or Muhammad Wilkerson out of the game on the defensive line," PFF wrote. "Richardson tied a career high with five pressures (including his first sack since Week 12 last year) and added a batted pass to record the highest single-game pass rush grade (plus-2.8) of his young career."
The Titans announced that they have waived Graham and signed tight end Chase Coffman. Coffman has four catches in 22 career games with the Bengals and Falcons and spent training camp with Tennessee before being dropped as the team set its initial 53-man roster.
Chappell, a 6-foot-5, 300-pound junior from Canadian, Texas, has never started a game for the Tigers but got some time at right tackle when McGovern was limited with a pectoral muscle strain during preseason camp. He also had a one-week tryout at right guard during camp, competing with Mitch Hall, who started the team’s first four games this season.
Missouri ranked 16th in the nation in rushing last season, averaging 237.9 yards per game, with a robust 5.7-yard average per carry — ninth-best in the nation. This season, before the SEC gauntlet has even started, the Tigers only average 4.8 yards per carry and rank 52nd in the nation in rushing offense (185.5 ypg).
Fortunately, Boehm believes he corrected the problem and doesn’t expect the snap struggles to linger into Saturday’s game at South Carolina. "He’s just releasing it too late," offensive coordinator Josh Henson said. "He needs to release it a little sooner."
Also: something kind of interesting the defense did. On two occasions -- both second downs, oddly enough -- Scherer came down to the line and Harris bumped out wide and stood up, showing almost a 3-4 over look. That look yielded a 1-yard run and Ray's 9-yard sack. Could be something worth looking out for in the future.
Steve Wieberg, a 1980 MU graduate, is one of the 13 people who will decide which teams will play in the new College Football Playoff.
Primary takeaway: Standard downs success > Passing downs success
Going into the season, most Missouri fans worried about who would be catching Maty Mauk's passes. Four games in, it would seem that we have an answer.
Sean Culkin had 4 receptions for 45 yards and the game tying touchdown in the fourth quarter of Mizzou's upset loss to Indiana. For some this was a welcome sight considering the lack of production from the tight end position in 2013 after several years of Michael Egnew, Chase Coffman and Martin Rucker.
