The headline says it all. It is officially the beginning of the dead period for Mizzou Athletics (with the exception of the non-revenue regular seasons wrapping up), and there ain’t much to write about.

- I’m sure all you cryptocurrency folks are excited about Sean Culkin’s latest venture — to become the first NFL player to completely convert his paycheck to Bitcoin, which the Kansas City Star wrote about.
Have to be honest, y’all, I know next to nothing about cryptocurrencies except that everyone who likes them also seems to like Elon Musk. Anyway, Culkin is trying to earn a backup tight end spot with Kansas City at the moment, so best of luck to our very own #MizzouMade crypto bro.

Feldman’s story walks through the process of how Drinkwitz built his staff, including how it all started with his connections from jobs past.

- Mizzou Softball couldn’t complete the sweep of No. 8 Arkansas, but did secure the series win, which should vault them into better position to be a regional host.
- Mizzou Volleyball’s season didn’t end how we all wanted, but they did end the season ranked within the top 25, which is something they’re pretty accustomed to doing!
- If you know any Mizzou journalism school students who are looking for a job with some nice experience, Dave Matter has got an opportunity for them!
