On Day 3 of SEC Media Days in Atlanta, there were some Mizzou related notes and quotes to pass along. The first head coach up on Wednesday was Arkansas’ Sam Pittman, and he says that he’s trying to make the Mizzou-Arkansas game more of a rivalry but the Razorbacks haven’t done much winning lately (he’s not wrong!).

Pittman on former Mizzou head coach Barry Odom:

And Pittman’s top choice for Arkansas’ three permanent opponents for the future SEC would be Oklahoma, Texas, and Missouri — which just seems like a good regional fit.

The Doak Walker Award announced their watch list for the upcoming season, and Mizzou’s incoming transfer Nathaniel Peat is one of 74 running backs in the country to make it. For more on Peat’s invitation to the Doak Walker Watch List, check it out on

And we’re officially on football commitment watch right now. Joshua Manning, a four-star wide receiver in the 2023 recruiting class will be announcing his commitment decision later tonight around 9:00 p.m. at Lee’s Summit High School.

This is pretty much a two-way battle between Missouri and Kansas State but the latest 247 Crystal Ball updates have been trending towards Mizzou. So stay tuned!

Onto the links. M-I-Z!
