Paul Adams impresses at the combine

Here are Saturday’s Mizzou Links.

The NFL Combine is in full swing and one Tiger is making an impression

And while not everyone has full jumped in at this point, Paul Adams certainly had himself a good day.

Adams had scouts buzzing with his efforts in the 40-Shuttle run and more. The other Tigers at the combine didn’t run yet, but Adams has been meeting with a lot of teams (according to him just about all of them) and his performance with agility and speed hopefully was enough to overcome his underperformance on the bench and with his “short arms”... god the NFL can be so stupid.

I’ll actually be at the game today

So I’ll get to honor one of the greatest Mizzou Basketball teams of all time.

At the top of my all-time favorite Mizzou player list is Derrick Chievous — who got his jersey retired this season — and Melvin Booker. I’m sure I’m not the only person in my age bracket whose first real memories of Mizzou basketball involved the man with the bandaid on his cheek, but the more formidable memories of that ‘94 team, of Booker and Crudup and Thames and O’Linney and Atkins and Frazier and Winfield. It was my sophomore year in High School, and I remember that team fondly. So it’ll be fun to get to honor those guys.

Mizzou plays at 2:30 against South Carolina on the SEC Network. The two teams met earlier this year with the Gamecocks capturing a 75-65 win in the other Columbia.
