Give me something good to hold onto, please
In typical Eli Drinkwitz fashion, we’ve started off the bye week with a bang.

The bat signal alludes to a mysterious commitment for next year’s class, though we didn’t get any official word on who it may be on Monday night. History tells us that Drinkwitz’s bye week recruiting is elite. And while it may not be a Luther Burden level commitment, it’s fun to dream about the future NIL potato chip deals that may be in the offing.
And a message to recruits considering Mizzou: Even if your route to success is a little more circuitous, we’ll love you to death. Exhibit A: The career of Ennis Rakestraw, Jr.

Yesterday at Rock M
- In which we pick a deserving MV3 after yet another near upset on the road
- In which Aaron highlights the plays (and players) that cost Missouri in Gainesville
- In which Missouri still isn’t in the Top 25, shocker!
- In which the tone of Before the Box Score continually creeps toward positivity
- Outdoor wrestling duel to kick off wrestling season? Who says no?

- Steve Wilks is a case study in Mizzou producing success. Spend one year in Columbia, get an NFL head coaching job. Math checks out!
- Dennis Gates seems pretty determined to bring in every living basketball coach to visit with his 2022-2023 roster, which I guess isn’t the worst strategy!

He also posted his regular promo for all things Mizzou Sports in case you missed it.
- ICYMI: Walk-on Ben Sternberg produced a fun video detailing a day in the life of a Mizzou Basketball player. My takeaway? Man needs more veggies in his life.
- Our boy Dru Smith is thriving in South Beach! Fifteen points on 6-11 shooting? :)))
Gorgeous, gorgeous play here. Staggered screens that leads to a beautiful lob pass from Dru Smith to Jamal Cain for the throwdown that had the crowd pretty excited.— Naveen Ganglani (@naveenganglani) October 11, 2022
