The Trib: Sterk puts Memorial Stadium's south end zone facility plan back in motion

Sterk said the south end zone facility would be the first leg of a facility improvement plan, with the second phase being a new indoor football practice facility featuring a full-size playing surface. [...]

The south end zone facility would feature a football weight room, coaches’ offices, medical training area and recruiting-specific areas. Sterk said the facility would be attached to the south side of Memorial Stadium, and he said the project also would include the addition of premium seating in the south end zone, as well as a new scoreboard on that end of the field. Existing premium seating on the east side of Memorial Stadium is about 95 percent sold out for this season, Sterk said.

Sterk also said MU’s new softball stadium, currently under construction east of the Hearnes Center, could be ready by March. University Field will be maintained as a backup in case the new stadium isn’t game-ready for the 2017 season.

Plans also are underway to install a turf infield and outfield at Taylor Stadium for baseball, a project that could be completed in time for the 2018 season.

The Missourian: Missouri's young and inexperienced offensive line surpasses expectations

On Saturday, Lock, who threw for a career-high 280 yards, consistently had space in the pocket to step into his throws. Missouri's offensive linemen said the lone sack was avoidable and happened because of a miscommunication.

As for the ground game, the Missouri running backs had difficulty finding holes to run through and the line struggled at times to push back defenders.

"I think we have a long way to go still," said Abeln, the most experienced of the bunch. "By no means have we arrived or are we where we want to be or think we can be."
