NCAA denies Dorial Green-Beckham immediate eligibility at OU

Former #1 overall recruit Dorial Green-Beckham will be able to sit a year at Oklahoma and play in 2015, or declare for the 2015 NFL draft.

2014 Missouri Walkthrough: CB newcomers have same upside, inexperience as rest of unit

2014 Missouri Walkthrough: CB newcomers have same upside, inexperience as rest of unit

You can eat and drink for free at our tailgate anytime you want, Don Cheadle. Kenya Dennis 6'0, 200, Jr. Bill C.: Missouri's cornerbacks unit has tons of athleticism but not necessarily a lot of size. That gives Kenya Dennis a pretty quick opportunity to find a niche. Corners coach Cornell Ford has basically called him a rock of granite, and he could help to replenish the physical aspect that Mizzou lost when guys like Randy Ponder left. He could be strong in run support. My biggest concern regarding Dennis at the moment is that he seems to be a bit all-or-nothing from a tackling...

2014 Missouri Walkthrough: Johnson could provide a steadying role as a wise old junior

2014 Missouri Walkthrough: Johnson could provide a steadying role as a wise old junior

David Johnson 5'11, 190, Jr. 2013: 3.0 tackles, 1 TFL Bill C.: David Johnson has by all accounts matured and developed pretty well in his three years in Columbia. As a redshirt junior, he's easily the oldest cornerback Mizzou's got, and he could provide a steadying influence if one of the Tigers' two sophomore starters goes off the rails a bit. Johnson was a 2013 spring star, and Mizzou has had plenty of late bloomers through the years. He still has plenty of time to become a contributor and memorable name on the Tiger defense. countrycal: David was expected to move into a starting position...

2014 Missouri Walkthrough: Gibson might be Tigers' most disruptive CB

John Gibson might be Missouri's most athletic, disruptive cornerback. Can he strike a balance between disruption and sophomore breakdowns in 2014? John Gibson 6'0, 185, So. 2013: 11.5 tackles, 1 INT, 3 PBU countrycal: I could almost just say "see above" in reference to Aarion Penton as I discuss John Gibson. Another sophomore who came in last year and made some serious noise as a contributor to a great season. He is slated to start across the field from Penton and is already expected to hold down the fort there. In addition to his prowess as a starting cornerback, John has also already...

2014 Missouri Walkthrough: Penton is confident, fast, and young

The Walkthrough series resumes for the home stretch! Aarion Penton 5'10, 185, So. 2013: 14.0 tackles, 1 TFL, 1 INT, 1 PBU Bill C.: We know that the Missouri passing game has struggled at times in fall camp, and we know that the second stringers haven't done just a ton of damage. That could be cause for concern regarding the Mizzou offense, but on the flipside (and all practice news has a flipside), it could also say very good things about Mizzou's first-string cornerbacks. In 2014, we'll learn all we need to know about the balance between experience and athleticism. In losing starters E.J....

2014 Missouri Walkthrough: Tiger CBs have never been more athletic, less experienced

Sophomores Aarion Penton and John Gibson are by default the most seasoned members of Missouri's 2014 cornerbacks unit, one that includes a load of exciting freshmen and two mostly untested juniors.

Shoe-less Henry Josey making a name for himself with touchdown runs

Last night, Henry Josey's 71 yard touchdown run was called back because of a penalty, but reminds us of his fantastic ability. Late in the 4th quarter of an Eagle blowout of the running-back-less Steelers, shoe-less Henry Josey broke this tremendous touchdown run: As you can see, there was a flag on the play, meaning the touchdown didn't count, but much like Reggie Bush, we know what really happened. This is actually Josey's second consecutive week scoring a TD during an NFL preseason game. Last week he scored against the Patriots as the clock expired on the 3rd quarter. (sorry about...

Kevin Puryear, a 3-star Forward from Blue Springs, MO becomes Mizzou's first commitment in the 2015 class.

2014 Missouri Fall Camp: Final Scrimmage Recap

Maty Mauk gives the SEC a peek into Mizzou Playbook

Browsing through our shiny new toy, the SEC Network, I noticed a handsome Mizzou quarterback calling plays The SEC Network asked a bunch of the league's signal-callers to call a play. In all likelihood the exact question was, "What's your favorite play?" Almost half-way through, Maty Mauk, decked out in his SEC Media days attire, shows up. Did you catch that? No? I don't blame you, it went pretty quick. I took the liberty of GIFing it: It's rare that super-secretive Gary Pinkel would reveal something, but maybe he didn't expect coaches to be "with it" and scouring the internet for clues...

Tigers Lose Out on Commitment From Jimmy Whitt

The Year of Kim hits its second bump as Anderson loses top Columbia recruit to Arkansas. At 5 pm tonight, consensus 4-star recruit Jimmy Whitt announced his commitment to Arkansas. To start, who is this kid? Well, you haven't been paying attention to my very thorough recruiting breakdowns if you can't answer that question. And well... that hurts my feelings. But here are his recruiting profiles: #55 from 247Sports, #1 in Missouri #52 from Rivals, #1 in Missouri #63 from ESPN, #1 in Missouri #52 from Scout, #1 in Missouri And a highlight video for fun. He's pretty good. It should hurt a...

2014 Missouri Fall Camp: It's Getting Hot In Hurr

Mizzou practices in the heat for the first time, the offensive line keeps scrambling around, Jimmie Hunt pulls a hammy, and the secondary (might) have some depth. In their first afternoon practice, the Tigers had to deal with some sweltering Missouri temperatures. You know what they say: If you can't take the heat, please go have a seat and drink some water we need to work on that conditioning a bit, son. Mizzou practices shift to afternoons this week.
