PowerMizzou: Key quotes: Spring Football Week 1

Kendall Blanton, on the importance of the tight end position in Josh Heupel's offense...

"I feel like we're second to the quarterback. Just knowing everything we're supposed to do, whether we spread out wide or in the backfield, playing a fullback-type, coming up and making blocks, making the calls to the o-line, we're doing all of that."

Mizzou Tigers pennant J'Den Cox has been dominant

The Trib: Cox enters national tournament with supreme confidence

"I was a little bit too humble" last season, Cox said. "I was so humble that I discouraged who I was and what I could do. I was so humble that I downplayed my talents. Now, it’s knowing that you are this good, and it’s not a bad thing, and I shouldn’t belittle that. I shouldn’t belittle myself, because I’ve been blessed with the abilities that I have. I should embrace it and take advantage of them, so that’s what I’ve been doing."

Cox focused on improving his diet and his conditioning after last season, and it has resulted in a more dominant wrestler. Twenty-one of Cox’s 28 victories this season have yielded bonus points. Last year, Cox entered the national tournament undefeated but with a lower percentage of his victories — 20 of 33 — with bonus points.
