Another season, another All-American running back for the Georgia Bulldogs. Todd Gurley is gone, but sophomore Nick Chubb returns after an amazing freshman season. He ran for 1547 yards and 14 touchdowns on 219 carries, and he had 18 receptions for 213 yards and another two touchdowns. He ran for over 100 yards in each of his last eight games. [...]

Georgia's quarterback situation, however, is far from settled. Brice Ramsey returns after backing up Hutson Mason in 2014. Ramsey completed 24-of-39 passes for 333 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions as a freshman. The other returning players vying for the job are Faton Bauta and freshman Jacob Park. However, Virginia graduate transfer Greyson Lambert recently announced he'll attend Georgia in 2014. Lambert threw for 1632 yards, ten touchdowns and 11 interceptions while completing 59-percent of his passes in 2014.

The Trib: Highs and lows: Defining moments of MU athletic season

Slaying the giant: The wrestling team entered the belly of the beast on Feb. 22. The No. 2-ranked Tigers faced top-ranked Iowa in the championship of the NWCA National Duals in front of a crowd of 6,846 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa. Missouri won six of 10 bouts to secure an 18-12 victory and claim its first National Duals championship, in hostile enemy territory, no less. "I told the kids before the match, ‘This is going to be a battle — the atmosphere and all of that — but enjoy it and embrace it,’ and they did," Missouri Coach Brian Smith said in a news conference after the match. The win clinched an undefeated dual record for Missouri and vaulted the Tigers to the No. 1 ranking. Only one other time did Missouri finish with an undefeated dual record, going 18-0-1 in the 1967-68 season. Missouri carried its No. 1 ranking into the national tournament but finished fourth.

Post-Dispatch: Mizzou's Anderson adjusts for encore season

This summer, with another roster makeover in the works following a 9-23 season, Anderson decided to stay where he’s needed most: in the practice gym with his players.

"I’ve turned down dozens of (appearance requests) so far," he said Tuesday during the team’s second week of summer practices. "I’m sorry, but I’m going to continue to do that. I’ve got some things that I’m committed to that I think are important. But I’m here for every practice, and I’m not sure I could say that a year ago. ... But I’m not going to do what I did last summer and fall. I just can’t. I can’t do my job justice and I can’t do my players justice."

"When I got the job there were so many aspects, so many things I was expected to do," he added. "I tried to do everything. I’m not going to do that. I’m not. I’m going to do what’s best for my team, the program and my family. Those are the areas I’m most concerned with."
