There are a bunch of football recruits in town this weekend, including at least one unexpected visitor:
Heard from a source that Boise State running back commit Damarea Crockett is taking an official visit to Missouri this weekend.— B.J. Rains (@BJRains) January 23, 2016
Crockett is the four-star running back out of Little Rock who's committed to Boise State but is reportedly a close friend of Micah Wilson, who just flipped to Mizzou.
Social media is fun on big official visit weekends.

(Well, the posts themselves are fun. The comments are often creepy.)
David Morrison informs us that MU athletics operated at a $4.36M surplus in 2014-15.
Missouri's dual win streak ended last night. (Here was our preview.) No. 5 Oklahoma State took the Tigers down in Stillwater.
Mizzou plays Texas A&M on the road today, and here's the preview if you dare. Warning: Texas A&M is the class of the SEC this year.
Gymnastics pulled off an upset over Georgia's Gym Dawgs! It was the Tigers' first SEC dual victory ever. (The SEC is really, really good at gymnastics.)
