Mizzou Tigers pennant What's On


Mizzou Tigers pennant Football coaches speak

The Trib (David Morrison): MU's new staff learning about team, each other as spring football approaches

Elarbee’s approaching his line with a similarly clean slate, especially given the fact that he’s replacing four starters.

By name, he mentioned junior Nate Crawford and sophomore Kevin Pendleton at guard, junior Alec Abeln at center and junior Tyler Howell and sophomore Paul Adams at tackle. But, until Elarbee can see them in game situations, he said the puzzle is far from solved.

"We’ve got some athletic guys. We have to get bigger. Meatier," Elarbee said. "Until you put the pads on, man, it’s hard to say these are the dudes."

The Trib (Steve Walentik): Anderson discusses week ahead during SEC coaches' teleconference

On why Ryan Rosburg’s had success regardless of opponent lately …

"Well, that question’s been asked a lot. I think a lot of it has to do with I think he’s relaxed. I think he’s worked extremely hard throughout his career. We’ve been able to take advantage of some matchups with him. We’ve been able to get the ball to him. Our guards have done a good job of getting him the basketball in an area where he can score because he doesn’t really shoot much. So I think it’s been a combination of things. He knows that he’s only got six games left, and he’s just kind of been going out and playing, working hard in practice, and I’m just happy for him that he’s had some success because he’s worked hard over four years, and hopefully, he can finish out his last six games and finish. When we played Carolina down there, he was 6 for 6 in 14 minutes, so hopefully, he can duplicate that."

Ryan Howard is immensely important @MizzouBaseball’s Howard Named One of 10 Players to Watch by USA Today

Mizzou Baseball shortstop Ryan Howard (St. Charles, Mo.) was named as one of 10 players to watch across the nation in college baseball by USA Today on Friday (Feb. 12). Howard, who hit .308 with five homers and 39 RBI last season, was one of three SEC players named to the list, joining LSU's Alex Lange and Florida's AJ Puk.

In 2015, Howard led the team in batting, at-bats and total bases while committing just seven errors in the field at short. He is coming off of an incredible summer as he was the starting SS for USA Baseball's Collegiate National Team. He hit .310 with six runs and three RBI in 17 games while slugging four doubles and a homer.

(Part 2 of our baseball preview goes up later today, by the way.)

Peter Malnati's doing pretty well for himself @MizzouMensGolf in the Pros - Feb. 12

Peter Malnati: Malnati's 2015-16 season on the PGA Tour continues to be a grand opening of sorts for the former Tiger golfer. He has finished in the top 10 in three events, including a T10 finish at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba (Nov. 15, 2015, -11) and a T6 finish at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions (Jan. 10, 2016, -17).  However, the highlight of Malnati's 2015-16 campaign came at the Sanderson Farms Championship, where he won by finishing 18-under par over the course of the four-round tournament (69-66-68-67).  The 468 points he has accumulated on the season is good enough to place him in 16th in the FedEx Cup standings.  Aside from his performance on the course, Malnati has also found popularity among fans due to the fact that he keeps a personal blog that he frequently updates himself.  He provides his readers with an inside look at life as a professional golfer.
