Fall Camp: Day 1 reports


Links and reports from Day 1 of Missouri's fall camp. Marcus Murphy will spend some time at slot receiver, freshman Nate Brown looks good, and defensive tackle Harold Brantley is back in good...

Arkansas will improve ... on paper

In Bret Bielema's second year, the Razorbacks should be excellent at running the ball and solid at defending the pass. But that probably isn't good enough to make headway against a brutal schedule.

Watercooler: Captains and Golden


Missouri names its captains, Markus Golden becomes a leader, DirecTV picks up the SEC Network, James Franklin gets used to five-step drops, and Brock Olivo has had one hell of a winding career.

The Greatest, #11-10: Faurot and a picture


Don Faurot and Missouri were synonymous.

Walkthrough: Walters and Witter


Freshmen Trevon Walters and Ish Witter are the prototypical Missouri backs: undersized, strong, and under the radar. There might be a few carries and return opportunities available for one of the...

Walkthrough: Morgan Steward


Morgan Steward is the biggest and strongest of Missouri's 2014 running backs; can he carve out a niche for himself, or will a younger back pass him on the depth chart?

It begins


Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel is confident in his program, and Mizzou sets out to answer questions about depth at receiver, linebacker, and defensive back.

Walkthrough: Russell Hansbrough


Running back Russell Hansbrough's lack of elite strengths hurt his notoriety, but his lack of weaknesses makes him one of Missouri's steadiest, most important offensive weapons in 2014.

Mississippi State and sudden expectations

Through 10 games in 2013, Mississippi State was 4-6 and Dan Mullen was on the hot seat. Three games later, the Bulldogs had hype and expectations. Are they ready to back it up?

Walkthrough: Marcus Murphy


Marcus Murphy is one of Missouri's most proven, explosive offensive weapons heading into 2014, and offensive coordinator Josh Henson might get creative in how he uses the senior this fall.

Watercooler: Shooting football skeet


Chase Daniel and Kansas City quarterbacks shoot football skeet, Emanuel Hall commits to Mizzou because of staff and academics, Teki Gill-Caesar commits to Mizzou basketball, and Kim Anderson hires...

On timing and Kim


The timing has been perfect, and Kim Anderson has been more than up for the job in his first three months as Missouri's head basketball coach.

On DGB & happier things


The NCAA isn't a court of law, and technicalities -- like using the Runoff Rule to make Dorial Green-Beckham immediately eligible at Oklahoma -- don't have to succeed.

Walkthrough: Printz and Zanders


Eddie Printz wowed with his scout-team accuracy in 2013, and Marvin Zanders wowed with his speed in the spring game. Both are battling to become Maty Mauk's eventual successors this fall.

Walkthrough: Corbin Berkstresser


Corbin Berkstresser was rushed into an impossible situation in 2012, then passed by Maty Mauk in 2013. Will he get a chance to prove himself?

Walkthrough: Maty Mauk


You know how the backup quarterback is usually the most popular player on the team? That probably isn't the case this year at Missouri, where Maty Mauk is a star waiting to emerge.

Ole Miss needs a 3rd step forward

With a superb defense alone, Ole Miss should be able to match last year's eight wins in Hugh Freeze's third season. The offense will dictate whether the ceiling is higher.

Watercooler: Boehm and line health

Evan Boehm goes to the K, offensive line health could dictate Missouri's offensive fate, Harold Brantley hasn't had a very fun offseason, and Paul Myerberg previews Missouri. Oh, and CAMP STARTS ON...

Emanuel Hall is a Tiger


Three-star Franklin, Tenn., receiver Emanuel Hall became Missouri's 11th commitment for the recruiting class of 2015.

Tennessee and the Ole Miss model

Extreme turnover in the trenches should prevent Tennessee from doing much better than about 6-6, but great recruiting and increasing experience could make for high 2015 expectations.

Watercooler: Golden time

Markus Golden's "like a bigger, stronger, faster Michael Sam, with comparable work ethic." Also: Maty Mauk set a high baseline with last year's performance, and Kip Edwards is a Buc.

The Greatest, #12: Stipo


By choosing to play for Norm Stewart, Steve Stipanovich helped to save Missouri Basketball. By playing as well as he did, he helped to push the Tigers to a level they had never seen.

Richaud Floyd is a Tiger


After a bit of a quiet summer (at least compared to last year), Mizzou landed its 10th commitment of the 2015 recruiting class when slot man Richaud Floyd decided to make his reservation.

Vandy starts over again

Derek Mason has the perfect résumé for continuing Vandy's winning ways in James Franklin's absence. But while the defense has some exciting play-makers, the offense will be a question mark.

Watercooler: No Levi

Levi Copelin has been suspended by the NCAA for the 2014 season after taking a legal, banned, over-the-counter substance. Also: Mizzou's linebackers are really young, and Linas Kleiza isn't playing...

The Greatest, #13: Braggin' Rights 1993


The 1993 Missouri-Illinois Braggin' Rights basketball game, a triple-overtime classic, had every type of possible significance. It was great in the present tense, and it had a lasting effect on...

Kentucky's real momentum

Mark Stoops improved Kentucky on the field (awful to bad) and in recruiting (top-20 class) in his first year. His Wildcats won't be bowling yet, but there's opportunity for another step forward.
