20 years of coaching including D1. Now own a small business. Volunteer scientist for the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Paxutent Center, USGeological survey. I'm working on summiting a large sample of the Western Hemisphere's highest peaks. In the 48 states I've now been on top of 23 of Colorado and Utah's highest. Have also summited several peaks in Ecuador, Puerto Rico, and had a very comfortable night on the flank of an active volcano. Life is good. Never stop being an athlete/scholar. Always appreciate the endeavors of others to make the earth better appreciated and understood. I believe God Blesses us daily with uncountable miracles. I believe in prayer and gratitude. I think it is a great challenge of humanity to understand human suffering as well as our miraculous Blessings. Being human therefore is like being on one great team and having to train/work every day to perform our role.

Missouri will pass for even more yards this year. Run for more yards. Score a lot more points. Now how far can Ryan Walters surpass Odom's defense.
Interesting stat story A.Olson. Many of the stats ranks were surprising.
Good point, but in real experience job descriptions are not as narrow as the titles suggest, and the expansion of duties is not often a glorious think-tank of new playbook, or as narrow as statistic work, but rather sometimes getting a look at how somebody is eating, sleeping, or ie. programs have had coaches counting 'dating' statistics, class attendance, residence issues and jobs. Having a staff that can;t color outside the lines, results in PEDs, credit card fraud, jobs that people don't show up for, tutors that blackmail resistrar officials, e mucho cosas mas. Here's another example that drives home the point. Few coaches are going to keep all their favorite high school coaches a secret. Even long experienced and successful recruiters are going to discuss this with everybody on the staff, including analysts. The sum total of how a hire like this will benefit or possibly not benefit Missouri enough is a question to think about at least a little.
schizophrenia + free beer + identity crisis = a-wipe for hire
Ok, It should be interesting to see how they use him.
with hic-ups between each sentences and an occasional belch.
not when it comes out of your no-brain. It's always monolithic toilet paper, with the expected adornment.
does cross-dressing always get you into such a tis?
Is there anything you're not afraid of?
Ryan is not experienced today, but what was he two years ago. Now Odom promotes him to DC. In Odom's mind that was better than going after the best available DC. Ok, we will see.
The seats were good on the southend..... but the foot-traffic problem always added about an hour to getting on the open highway. Can someone explain why they put a softball stadium in the middle of the best football parking lot. Maybe there should be a parking garage under that brainless waste of revenue producing space.
One coach needs criminals even the top historical coach from that program made public statements against, the other can recruit players to anywhere.
You needed a case-study?, about something that hasn't happened yet? You can't make a comment that stupid up?
I'll be interested to hear everyone elses's impression of the defense.
Receivers: as leaked to the media, Floyd and Johnson becoming more complete receivers and the difference is remarkable. Nate Brown is not only looking healthy but he's looking like a tough-guy receiver. I think I saw Banister, Spadarotto, and Ellinger but i missed any camera view of names on shirts and didn't have a program with numbers. I did not see McCarty. Justin Smith is finally getting some momentum going..raw athletic ability should polish up well. (Tight-EndsI saw Albert O. but I don't know if I saw Blanton, Christopherson is and looks young but has the tools, was that Scales?-could he have improved that much. Ballard looks like a college man version of his high school man videos...reliable hands AND feet.
Running back Roundtree/Crockett, Downing, Jones, Miller, Vaoifi, ?was that Sales RB or Sales receiver, I missed it if Trump carried the ball
Based only on today: Lock, Lowary close behind, Powell, then close battle between the JC national champ-Scott, and Wilson
then of course there are fans that truly to be medicated all the time, even in their mom's basement
Distance between the wrecking ball and the defenseless catcher granted in a "fair-catch" is the problem, just concentrate on this safe margin and the game won't have to change much. When players were slower and less pumped-up the safe margin was still too close. Ref whistles in these situations need to sound as soon as anyone breeches, for example, a four-yard fair-catch circle. Eviction might not be a tough enough penalty for knocking somebody out. Maybe eviction plus losing the player of your opponents choice. That could be fun. All distance judgements reviewable and, at four-yards, close calls could go to the kicking team to repeat kick or accept where the refs place the ball.
If you are personally confident you can play quarterback in the NFL, your are going to discriminate among coaching staffs on a level that some fan bases just can't imagine without a house call from Dr. Tim Leery.
Without regard to the statistics, Dak Prescott was obviously a diamond before his senior year. Anybody that needed numbers to drive this semi-tractor-trailer-rig home was a football dunce.
will heal up by ?July? this wasn't just getting to the power-aide at the same time.
I'm hoping to see some of the spring game but if there is a chance that sound track will be part of the real event then I have to watch it on utube where i can turn the sound down.
You hate almost every program in the SEC. That's your miserable life of self doubt showing. Normal folks know that the worst teams in the SEC are better than the best teams in a lot other conferences. Here's something else Missourians have fun with that will make cause you to hate yourself even more. Missouri has a program that has played in 9 Division 2 championship games and won 5 of them, you personally have none. They win so many, it's hard to keep track. Guess what, there are a lot of other very good Division 2 football programs all around the nation that are fun to watch as well, you personally win none. And you know those Division 3 and NAIA athletes, they don't lose any sleep knowing that losers like you don't watch them, it's a sure thing they prefer you just stay a groupie of as few teams as you will. Thanks for reading anyway, because even your fear is fun.
Good list Adam, so we will probably see Dawson Downing.... who wants to tackle him? It would be interesting to see all the receivers we haven't seen and there are about a half dozen of these. Very interesting if we see all the 5 deep quarterbacks for no less than 8 snaps. We can't expect to see linemen having a WWF fight in the trenches so no use hoping for that. What if we saw playbook where 2-4 tight ends entered the game on the same snap?...even if Missouri never intends to use this for more than a couple of first downs, it would be good mis-information to show every game. That would certainly takes more practice time away from your opponents every week than needed to keep it fresh.
Everybody in the Big 12 can see that Kansas is getting help from the league, and has been getting help for years. Where is that feinting goat Utube video? To be fair, Kansas made a good showing in the tourney, didn't anybody see the officiating in those games? I didn't. It's way past time somebody made the NCAA get a lot more proactive about enforcement.
