Missouri has released its depth chart and game notes for the Vanderbilt game. Here’s the two-deep (pdf). Click to enlarge.
The changes from last week:
- Well, for starters, there is no kicker listed. I guess Mizzou will be going for it on every fourth down and going for two after every touchdown.
- Adam Ploudre and Alec Abeln are now listed as co-starters at RG.
- Kendall Blanton and Jason Reese are no longer listed as co-No. 2s at tight end. Blanton is full-time backup now, which matches what the snap counts have been telling us.
- Anthony Sherrils is again listed as full-time starter at strong safety. He was co-starter with Ronnell Perkins previously.
And that’s pretty much it. Obviously the kicker situation is the most noteworthy change, though it is in no way a surprise. It would be surprising if Ben Tesson, maker of all of one PAT in his short career, weren’t the guy who lines up when Mizzou attempts its next kick (unless it’s a long field goal, anyway). As big a leg as Tucker McCann has, he’s lost his way this year, and sending him back out there would do him a disservice at the moment.
One other note:
Harris has had himself an impressive couple of weeks.
