Man, it felt weird missing this week, of all weeks, for meetings. I missed the start of spring ball, and I was on a plane when the brackets were (eventually) unveiled. Alas, the regular schedule now resumes. And our own Oscar has an excellent practice report coming up later this morning.
More on wideouts
"The limp leg?" receivers coach Andy Hill said.
Um...sure. Why not? Care to expand?
"It only happened one time," Hill said. "It’s not like it’s a big, ‘Oh my gosh, he does it every day and everybody falls to the ground.’ It’s a good thing. We’re running full speed and it gets the defensive back to freeze. It’s that old wrestling limp leg. You stick it out there and then take it away, baby."
Andy Hill was talking about Alabama transfer Chris Black and is already setting the bar high as it pertains to spring quotes this year.
Jackie Shipp belongs here
"I hope that people understand the staff that we have, they all wanted to be here," Odom said. "They’re excited to be here. The guys we’ve got out there that I walk into the staff meeting (with) everyday, the nine guys around the table, they’re anxious to make Mizzou football better.
"His experience would rival anyone in the country."
Every hamstring is injured
Off-the-field training has been a big part of Odom's toughness mantra. It didn't take long for Scherer to get his first taste of the new coach's program.
"The first morning conditioning I'm looking on the ground thinking: holy cow, we've got 10 more of these for the next month?" Scherer said. "I'm sitting there like: what am I going to do? But you work through it, you learn you're going to live. The next morning, you come in and you're in a little better shape, a little tougher than the morning before. He's really pushed us past our limits and it's really helped all of us."

It's Selection Monday!
Pingeton and her players expect to hear Missouri’s name called when the selection show airs at 6 p.m. Monday on ESPN. They’ve ramped up their watch party, too, and will congregate at Mizzou Arena with their fans in an event open to the public. Doors open at 5 p.m.
Missouri (21-9) is on the verge of its first NCAA Tournament bid since 2006 despite entering the postseason on a three-game losing streak.
