    The only intrigue in the ‘Bama @ Mizzou game is likely to be in performance of draft prospects. Here’s a few.

    Xavier Gooden, LB, MU
    Sheldon Richardson, DT, MU

    Dee Miliner, CB, Ala
    Chance Warmack, G, Ala

      Lacy already has a huge touchdown run and showed a lot of athleticism making the play. Impressive. Chance Warmack blew up two defensive lineman on the play including Sheldon Richardson. The guy is a beast. Looking forward to seeing A.J. McCarron again too.

    More of training session for the Crimson Tide so far. Too much talent and depth for Mizzou in this game. The O-line is one of the best in college and Warmack is epic.

    • Rob Staton says:

      A complete beat down. Game over in the first quarter.

      • Andy B says:

        Looking at Bama schedule, the Vols in Knoxville and LSU in Baton Rouge are the only games I can see being a problem for the Tide. That’s said, the quality and depth on their roster will make it interesting. Those 2 games I think will be tight.

    God bless the Tide, but they’ve had 2005 Seattle’s luck facing beat up teams. We (Mizzou) couldn’t stay with ‘Bama on our best day, but with an all freshman backup interior blockers in front of a freshman backup QB… ‘Bama’s scrimmages are more competitive.

    Onto basketball season for my beloved Tigers…

    Good to see Montee Ball finally get untracked today in a big way. I wonder if this performance rehabilitates his draft stock a bit.

    How was Landry Jones today, Rob? From what I heard Texas was pretty bad defensively and Jones really wasn’t that impressive, but I didn’t get to see it.

    • Rob Staton says:

      My recording of the game failed unfortunately so I’m going to have to wait until Monday to see the game in full. Considering it was a total blow out Jones’ numbers were poor. In fact they kept him playing deep into the fourth quarter seemingly to try and find some rhythm.

      • Andy B says:

        I watched the whole game and Without giving too much away (Rob), Jones’ numbers werent that great due to OU ground attack. He didn’t really need to do much. Still , 330yds and 2 TD’s but threw a pick 6

  7. JC says:

    the ESPN crew keep talking about this Ezekiel Ansah kid for BYU. He sounds like a freakishly athletic DE/OLB. I guess he hadn’t even heard of football until he came to the US to go to college so is still raw as uncooked chicken. All that being said, he could be cheap depth with large potential.

  8. AlaskaHawk says:

    Keep an eye on Oregon States Markus Wheaton as a wide receiver with two td catches and a double reverse end around for another td.

  9. CJ says:

    Oregon State wins again, and Scott Crichton has another big game, 2 sacks, now at 8 for the year. Brandin Cooks is also looking like a really explosive playmaker with another 150+ receiving game. Beavs are for real Rob! Gotta give them some scouting looks! haha

      I wish I could CJ – unfortunately I’m handcuffed to whatever games ESPN show in Europe. And the Baseball playoffs are eating into the CFB coverage at the moment, which is why I only get three games this weekend. I’ll keep an eye out so see when they’re on the schedule. I have the UCLA game stashed and will get to it soon.
