Danario Alexander highlights latest class of inductees into Missouri’s Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame | The Kansas City Star
Rivals didn’t even spell Alexander’s name correctly on his recruiting profile — it was spelled "Denario" — and he was only rated as a two-star prospect, but he became a first-team All-American as a senior after setting Tigers single-season records with 113 catches for 1,781 yards and 14 touchdowns.
How again, was Alexander left off the list for the Biletnikoff Award? As Bill said, "Danario Alexander's 2009 season was every bit as incredible on paper as it was experienced live."
Alexander says he's still holding out hope for the NFL, working out with teams, but if that doesn't work out he plans on taking his MCAT.— David Morrison (@DavidCMorrison) February 27, 2016
After 59 years, Jack Davis is inducted into the Missouri Athletics Hall of Fame | Sports | columbiamissourian.com
Davis, who is now 80, played on the baseball and track and field teams from 1955-57. His .399 career batting average still stands as the highest in program history, which he admitted he didn't even know. Despite that record, it took a letter from former Missouri basketball coach Norm Stewart, who called Davis one of the best all-around athletes he had ever seen, to help get Davis inducted.

BenFred: Ex-Tiger Rucker hoping to catch on in politics
Who knows if Rucker can win a primary; as of Friday afternoon, no one had filed to run against him. Who knows if he can beat Kevin Corlew, the district's Republican incumbent who got his law degree from Nebraska. Showing some of Rucker's highlights against the Cornhuskers couldn't hurt.
"Hopefully, this one is like 2007," Rucker said.
No word yet on Anderson's future beyond season's final three games - Columbia Daily Tribune
If Athletic Director Mack Rhoades has given him any assurances of that, Anderson wasn’t saying so Thursday when asked about his future during his weekly press conference.
"We’ve had discussions," Anderson said. "But I talk to Mack a lot. I think that’s probably a fair question, but as far as me, I think that every coach is coaching for his job every day. … "The only day that I felt like I was really safe was the day after we won the national championship at Central Missouri. I thought, ‘You know what, I’m probably going to be pretty good today. I’m OK today.’ But then tomorrow, you’ve got to go back to work again."
