Hey there, Laurence and Jarrett!
SEC! SEC! SEC!
Stay away from Anthony Sherrils, NFL!
I want two more years of him. Charles Harris, I've resigned myself to losing. But both Harris and Sherrils made ESPN Insider's top 5 underclassmen list at their given positions for 2017. It's a little surprising to me that Sherrils is on there, simply because his size isn't by any means the NFL prototype (and underclassmen don't usually make it too high up the list unless they are physical specimens), but lord knows he's got the speed for the job. And he was really, really steady in 2015, especially for a sophomore and first-year starter.
As for current pros...
Q: What made center the right position for you at this level?
A: That’s a great question. I don’t know. My short arms? You know what, I would’ve plugged and played wherever they put me. I definitely feel like I like being right in the thick of things and helping out any way I can, and I guess the best way I can help out is being at center inside and helping ID some of the fronts and the defenses.
Q: Being from Texas originally but playing professionally in Missouri after going to college at Missouri, are you starting to feel like a Missourian?
A: I definitely feel like it’s home. Texas is everything to me, and I eventually want to end up back in Texas. I’m in Texas right now, and it makes me happy because I’m in Texas. Everything makes me happier in Texas, but I have an unbelievable network of friends and a support group of teammates and some family up in Kansas City, so I definitely feel like a Missourian. It will always be in my blood. I always rep Missouri stuff, almost to an obnoxious point. Even down here, I have people ask me if I have anything other than Missouri Tiger stuff. The truth is, I don’t.
It's preview season throughout the land

A name to keep an eye on:
Mizzou recruited Booth hard out of high school, so at the very least he's a name to keep in the back of our collective mind.
Olympic qualifying: ongoing
Volleyball schedule: about set
By the way...
It'd be nice if I knew who I was playing for in about 3 months..— Amanda Sanchez (@ae_sanchez20) June 17, 2016
When I heard Title IX was involved in the Ehren Earleywine investigation, I told myself not to assume any official news before the end of June. June ends this week! (My guess, by the way: They're finalizing contract language to assure a "zero tolerance" arrangement toward Earleywine's actions. But that's purely a guess. I guess wrong a lot.)
