- Mizzou is now scheduled for an evening kickoff when they travel to Georgia, which is odd considering United States law on showing excessive violence in prime time.
- Dave Matter still has Mizzou at 13th in his SEC Power Rankings, but hey they’re still not last in the East!
- At the Kansas City Star, Blair Kerkhoff gives us some tips regarding Mizzou’s upcoming trip to the Plains, including some fun bits of information on Auburn’s personal hell!

- Mad Max is back, ladies and germs! Max was perfect (no, literally) through six innings on Monday night against the Brewers before the Mets pulled him due to his time on the IL.

- And you better believe that Robin Pingeton won’t be left out in the cold when it comes to ‘crootin!
