The Tigers tried the four-defensive end look last week against South Carolina but not as extensively.
"Whenever you have a bunch of talent on the D-line, you have to find a way to get everybody out there," Harris said.
Harris, who had a team-high nine tackles, now has eight sacks for the season, topping last season’s total of seven.
That last line threw me off for a moment. Charles Harris has had a frustrating season overall, but in just three games (Georgia, South Carolina, Vanderbilt), he logged 7.5 sacks, and that has allowed him to surpass his sack total from last year.
His all-around TFL numbers are still down, mind you -- after posting 18.5 TFLs last year, he's at 11.5, which is a pace for about 14 for the season. But his sack totals are up, and he'll surpass last year's tackles total, too. That's both impressive ... and frustrating. It's a reminder of how awesome he can be and a reminder of what could have been had Missouri's defensive front not spent much of the first two months of the season struggling. Scheme change, acceptance of scheme change ... whatever the issue, the Missouri defensive line still has loads of potential but just couldn't find the plot for much of the 2016 campaign.

Your new SEC volleyball standings:
1. Florida (14-1, 24-2)
2. Kentucky (13-2, 20-6)
3. Missouri (12-2, 21-6)
4. Texas A&M (12-2, 18-7)
5-14: Everybody else, way behind
Losing to South Carolina (6-8, 18-8) isn't the end of the world because Sunday's upcoming match against Florida was going to decide Missouri's title chances anyway, but it and Texas A&M's rise have complicated things. Missouri is 2-0 against Kentucky and 0-1 against A&M. If the Tigers beat Auburn on Friday and Florida on Sunday, their title chances are still strong, but another loss, and they could suddenly be locked into fourth.
