The Tuesday Watercooler thinks that Shane Ray guy is pretty alright, and T.J. Moe is probably just drumming up business, and can you believe they haven't announced a time for the Mizzou/Georgia game yet?

MUTIGERS.COM Shane Ray Named SEC Defensive Line Player of the Week

COLUMBIA, Mo. - University of Missouri junior DE Shane Ray (Kansas City, Mo.) was named the Southeastern Conference Defensive Line Player of the Week for his big game this past Saturday as he helped lead Mizzou to a thrilling 21-20 road comeback win at 13th-ranked South Carolina. Ray won the award, as announced tonight by the league office, after recording a career-high eight tackles (all solo stops), including 2.0 quarterback sacks, which ties his personal best.

DEFENSIVE LINE Shane Ray, DE, Missouri

• Keyed the Mizzou defense and its stellar effort which shut down a dangerous Gamecock offense in MU's 21-20 comeback win. Ray ended the night with 8 tackles - all solo and 2 quarterback sacks, while being credited with a QB hurry as well.

• The 2-sack game was already the third of the season for Ray, who now ranks #1 in the NCAA in both QB sacks (1.6 p/g) and tackles for loss (2.3 p/g). His 8.0 total sacks is already just 3.5 behind the Mizzou single-season record of 11.5 established by both Michael Sam (2013) and Aldon Smith (2019).

• Mizzou's defense held South Carolina's offense to season-low totals in several categories, including points (20), yards (338), passing yards (219) and 1st downs (18).

T.J.’s Take: Moe Reviews Missouri-South Carolina > insideSTL.com -> Mizzou Tigers

Quarterback It’s no secret that I’m been a huge Maty Mauk fan. The kid just has it. Has the leadership. Has the moxy. Has the ability. And the guy just has fun. Remember the Toledo game where J’mon Moore was wide open on the post? Maty drops the ball perfectly into his arms for what would be and easy score and J’mon drops it. (No shame in that. I dropped my first pass ever thrown to me against Illinois in ‘09 and it also would’ve gone for a score. I turned out just fine. J’mon will too.) How does Maty react? He looks up to the sky and laughs. He doesn’t run over to the freshman and light into him. He gives him a high five and tells him to shake it off, all while having a blast every second of the game himself. That’s the kind of guy you want to play with.  And that hit on Coach Spurrier? I know you did it on purpose, Maty. And I loved it.

(Emphasis mine.) Okay, let's hear what Maty Mauk had to say about it, on TJ Moe's very own new show:

Newlogo_medium Rewind and Snap Counts

Game Rewind: Missouri 21, South Carolina 20 - Columbia Daily Tribune | Columbia Missouri: Behind The Stripes

God-Awful Offense: Alright, let's get this out of the way first. Both defenses played pretty well. Got that part? OK, good. Moving on. Both offenses were putrid. They combined to run 61 of 149 plays (40.9 percent) for zero yards or fewer. Nearly half of Missouri's plays (33 of 70) went for nothing. Of the 31 drives in the game, 19 ended in punts, two on downs, two on kneeldowns to close a half and one on a missed field goal.

This had to be Brothers' best game as a college player. He had 10 tackles, matching the career high he set against Georgia last year. All but two were unassisted. Seven were assisted versus the Bulldogs. Those 10 tackles happened an average of 6 yards from the line of scrimmage. The 10 against South Carolina happened an average of 2.5 yards from the line of scrimmage. He had a tackle for loss and a pick against Georgia, two tackles for loss and two passes defended against South Carolina.

Here's another thing: the three-wideout, tight-end set had a renaissance, getting 5.7 yards per carry and two touchdowns on the ground as well as being the set from which Mauk hooked up with Sasser for 41 yards. That's a good thing, because Missouri only had about three wide receivers Saturday.

Notebook: PGs set decision dates, Mizzou plots monster weekend

Missouri bringing in heavy hitters next month There were some questions regarding whether new Mizzou coach Kim Anderson would be able to recruit at a high level. By keeping ace recruiter Tim Fuller and hiring former Huntington Prep (W.Va.) coach Rob Fulford, Anderson made key moves in attempting to alleviate some concerns.

And if the weekend of Oct. 10 is any indication, the new staff at Missouri is already making waves in the grassroots and high school circuit.

Sources have informed CBSSports.com that the Tigers have a monster weekend planned, bringing in 10 visitors. Here's the rundown:

• Official visits: Isaiah Briscoe (No. 9 in 2015), Antonio Blakeney (No. 17 in 2015), Thomas Bryant (No. 25 in 2015)

• Unofficial visits: Jayson Tatum (No. 1 in 2016), Miles Bridges (No. 23 in 2016), Michael Porter (No. 4 in 2017), Ted Kapita (No. 37 in 2015), Kobi Simmons (No. 15 in 2016), Curtis Jones (No. 56 in 2016), Tyler Cook (No. 57 in 2016)
