Kevin Potter, an all-conference Mizzou safety and four-year starter from 1979-82, is giving back.

For the most part, this is simply one EMU professor doing a bunch of rallying here, so I don't think the program is doing any serious rallying to the idea of dropping yet.

Q: What was that like to have a teammate to go through this as you guys are preparing for the next step?
McGovern: "It’s been fun. Most guys don’t have a guy like that. It makes it a lot better, because" otherwise "you can be by yourself a lot. Not a whole lot of guys are doing what you’re doing, especially at your same position. It was definitely nice having him around for the entire time, just to have someone to talk to and to have someone to push you."
Q: Between the end of last season and the draft, what were some things you were really focused on that you wanted to prove that you could handle?
McGovern: "I wanted just to prove that I could play guard. I was taking it one step at a time. I was really looking forward to the Senior Bowl, but unfortunately, had a little" hamstring "injury there. Other than that, everything went really well."

J'den won't be the only Tiger in Rio
J'den's story is amazing
He's ahead of schedule, actually. He told Vox Magazine he wanted to make the Olympics by 2020.
The time for a turnaround is growing late...
...but beating Missouri State would still feel pretty good.
