Eli Drinkwitz is a big fan of Missouri’s “Field General” quarterbacks

Mizzou Links for Thursday, January 9

Who is going to be the next “Field General” quarterback to play at Mizzou? Shawn Robinson? Connor Bazelak? Brady Cook?

Head coach Eli Drinkwitz tweeted out a pretty nice looking graphic of five Missouri quarterbacks from this past decade.

Under Brad Smith, Chase Daniel, Blaine Gabbert, James Franklin, and Drew Lock, Missouri went to 11 bowl games, won three division titles, and had four 10+ win seasons. Not too shabby.

In case if you missed it yesterday, defensive lineman Montra Edwards Jr. officially announced his commitment to Missouri via Twitter.

This was pretty much expected for quite some time now, but now it’s official. With the Edwards commitment, Missouri has moved up to No. 70 in the Rivals and 247Sports recruiting class rankings, if you’re into that kind of thing.

While the College Football season is coming to a close, there are some All-Star bowl games coming up this month, and a lot of Mizzou players will be participating in them. DeMarkus Acy, Kelly Bryant, Yasir Durant, Johnathon Johnson, and Tre’Vour Wallace-Simms will be playing in the East-West Shrine Bowl on January 18th. Richaud Floyd and Ronnell Perkins will be in the FBS Spiral Tropical Bowl on January 12th.

And after the 69-59 loss to Tennessee on Tuesday, Saturday night’s game against Florida just became even more critical. It’s pretty much a must-win game now, because the Tigers simply can’t afford an 0-3 start to begin SEC play, so Mizzou Basketball is issuing a black out at Mizzou Arena. There’s still plenty of season left, but Missouri desperately needs this one to stop the bleeding.

Nothing much from Michael Porter Jr. (2 pts, 3 rebounds) in Denver’s 107-106 win over Dallas on ESPN last night, so let’s get to the links!
