A New Week.

It’s a new week for Mizzou Football, as the Tigers need to get rid of the bad taste in their mouths after what happened Saturday at Kansas State.

After a much-anticipated Week 2 that ended with big-time disappointment, an 11 o’clock game against an FCS team doesn’t generate excitement — but at the very least, it’s almost a guaranteed win on the schedule.

The game still needs to be played though — so let’s go 1-0.

Don’t expect any changes, however, as it will be the same depth chart as Weeks 1 and 2 — meaning Brady Cook is still the starting quarterback. And sticking with the same offensive game plan?

The real intrigue in Saturday’s game is will Sam Horn play? And how to get Luther Burden more involved? (Not sure I get this from Drinkwitz, however).

Luther Burden punt returner sounds good to me:

Moving on, maybe the biggest news out of Tuesday was that Mizzou’s secondary gets some depth help — as Miami transfer cornerback Marcus Clarke has been ruled eligible for this season. Clarke’s experience and familiarity under Blake Baker should be a plus.

From Parker Gillam’s notebook — Blake Baker says “I foresee him (Clarke) being able to help us this year.”

Onto the links. M-I-Z!
