Mizzou’s preseason camp lacked for headlines. That’s a good thing.

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

Camp is over, and what did we learn?

Above all, Missouri escaped camp without a traumatic injury cutting down a cornerstone player. Sure, some key players are nicked up, but the only real hit came to depth at tight end once Brendan Scales went down with a broken bone in his foot. Almost one week out from kickoff, though, the Tigers will likely have a full deck when they land in Wyoming.

The past month saw some mild intrigue as the running backs and wide receivers jockeyed for position. There was a mild position battle at safety. There was a period of slight terror when tight end Albert Okwuegbunam and quarterback Kelly Bryant were hobbled, but both figure to be in fighting shape. And a lone position switch with Richaud Floyd now tasked with batting down passes instead of catching them.

After that, well, it was a month absent major headlines.

Again, that’s the desired outcome.

However, The Kansas City Star’s Alex Schiffer had 15(!) takeaways to share after spending August roaming the practice fields.
