****Official 2013-14 Missouri Tiger Football Repository Thread****

We have two things to look forward to this year:

1) The potential beginning of the Maty Mauk Era. Mauk represents the best chance for this program to get back to a level of respectability after horrendous QB play cost us multiple games last year.

2) The last year of the Gary Pinkel era. Pinkel's entrenched cronyism won't play in a conference this competitive, especially if he couples his abysmal gameday coaching with lackadaisical, worst-in-conference recruiting. Pinkel was the formerly adequate meal that has now turned into a four pound bowel obstruction. It's time to jam a Fleet's enema up our collective asses.

Here is the schedule. We dodge Alabama, LSU, and Arkansas in the west and the Non-con is decidedly weaker than years past.

8/31: Murray State
9/7: Toledo
9/21: @ Indiana
9/28: Arkansas State
10/5:@ Vanderbilt
10/12: @ Georgia
10/19:Florida
10/26: South Carolina
11/2:Tennessee
11/9: @ Kentucky
11/23: @ Ole Miss
11/30: aTm

Looks like 6-6. Undefeated in non-con, 2-6 in league play.

I will eventually update the OP with a list of high profile in-state recruits that decide to go elsewhere after a half-assed attempt to gain their services. The inevitable cavalcade of *** rejects, skeezers, skanks, and scalliwags we get will fill out the ranks.


Razors, cyanide capsules, and Jonestown Kool-Aid are available in the break room. Second door on the left.

Since every Mizzou thread eventually dies of AIDS, I recommend starting anti-retroviral therapy immediately. I believe Walgreens covers Express Scripts.


Premium In-State Players:

Roderick Johnson: **** OT, Florissant, MO.
Monte Harrison: **** WR, Lee's Summit, MO.
Jimmy Swain: **** LB, Lee's Summit, MO


Commitment List: From to and possibly

Spoiler!

It's not just Bauer. Several other guys, including Roderick Johnson.
Ah, I see.

So 2014 will remind us of 2011 basketball whereas 2013 will remind us of 2012 basketball.

They both sucked, but 2011 sucked worse because there was a lot of great talent to be had that we didn't get.

I get it.

I think that fans will understand that schedule considering we play SEC teams the rest of the year. I would think most would be more interested in getting some wins than seeing tough OOC teams come into Columbia considering our failure of a season last year.

Yeah, that's about it.

Though Pinkel and co. don't have the excuse of coming in late to a new job and recruiting with an NCAA cloud over their heads like Haith and co. did.

2012 basketball class would have included Rodney Purvis if Nevin Shapiro never mentions Frank Haith's name.

Pinkel and co.'s recruiting results are just what you can expect when over 1/2 the staff is average at best at recruiting, and you're carrying at least 3 guys who suck at recruiting (Jones, Walker, Grinch).

I am torn. I want Maty Mauk to be awesome. But I also would almost rather they miss a bowl game this year and just make over the staff and start fresh than suffer through another 3-4 years of Pinkel slide into retirement.

I'd vote for this. It would sting, but we would still have two years with Mauk and DGB to get things going with a new staff.

Tried to update with all Mizzou offers, but the server keeps shitting itself.

Here's the skinny: there are a ton of good OL prospects in state this year; we won't get any of them.

Interesting.

I just found out that before MU got their new turf last season, they had been playing on 99.25 yard field...not 100. [obviously not including endzones, they surveyed out to be regulation.]

Carry on.

COLUMBIA — The questions never stop coming for Henry Josey. It’s been nearly 17 months since he suffered a traumatic knee injury that threatened to end his playing career, and people still can’t help themselves.

How did it feel then? How does the knee feel now? Why aren’t you wearing a brace?
Josey, who spent the entire 2012 season conquering a trying rehab process that has tested his mental and physical limits, has grown weary of the latter question. Josey, a junior running back, figures that with all he’s been through, it must be part of some divine plan, anyway.
“If I’m going to get hurt, I’m going to get hurt,” Josey said. “The brace isn’t going to stop me from getting hurt. When people ask me that question, I just look up at God like, ‘He’s got me.’ I wouldn’t be back out here for no reason, so why would I put a brace on?”
By all accounts, Josey has inspired and surprised coaches and teammates alike with the progress he’s made since he tore the MCL, ACL and patellar tendon in his left knee against Texas in November 2011. And after a year-long wait, he finally got a chance to show his stuff in Missouri’s first scrimmage of the spring on Saturday, as he gained 28 yards on eight carries.
But the scrimmage — a full-contact affair which the defense won 24-10 — was not about stats or even the final score, at least for Josey. It was about regaining his mojo.
“Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect,” Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said of Josey’s recovery. “But he’s really close.”
To what? According to Pinkel — who says Josey recently ran a 4.4 40-yard dash — the 5-foot-10, 190-pounder from Angleton, Tex., isn’t that far away from resembling the back that took Columbia by storm in 2011, when he came off the bench to rush for 1,168 yards and nine touchdowns on 145 carries (a ridiculous average of 8.1 yards per rush).
“By the season, I would expect him to be (back to normal), based on what I see now,” Pinkel said.
He showed flashes of it on Saturday. His trademark burst shone through on his first carry of the day, a 15-yard run that drew yells from his teammates. He also showed agility, stopping and starting and cutting off the knee with little hesitation. And he showed the ability to take a hit, repeatedly popping up off the ground after.
“It was like old times,” Josey said afterward. “I’ve been waiting for this moment.”
So has Pinkel, whose affection for Josey becomes evident whenever someone brings up the back’s arduous journey back to the field.
“He’s just a really special person,” Pinkel said of Josey. “The stories of (linebacker) Will Ebner sleeping in the hospital with him for three straight weeks every night, putting sugar or salt on his food and putting milk in his cereal … then the multiple surgeries — (it) was as bad an injury as you can have. But his attitude has been remarkable.”
Josey remembers sleeping only two hours in the 24 hours after he got hurt, the pain of the injury and the nagging question of why it happened to him almost too much to bear. He often wondered if he’d ever play football again, let alone return to being the player he once was.
“They were telling me I was going to play again, but that was the last thing on my mind,” said Josey, who had his doubts. “I just felt like I was in a dream. I found myself asking why.
“You always ask yourself — why? Why? Why me?” Josey said.
But Josey credits his teammates and coaching staff — particularly team physician Pat Smith and trainer Rex Sharp — for helping him overcome those negative thoughts.
“It took me a while to get out of that state of mind,” Josey said. “I had a lot of support … it took me a while to get up on my own and actually do something for myself. But once I did that a couple months after, I finally started dealing with the rehab. So I’m here now, and I’m blessed to be here.”
He’s back, he says, a changed man, one who has since learned to rely on his faith and trust in God.
“What I went through is a big lesson for me about taking a lot of things for granted,” Josey said. “That fast, He can take it from you. He took it from me that fast, and I didn’t know how I was going to live without (football). (But) just believing in God like I needed to and showing how I’m in love with Him and my faith, that just brought it all back and made things easier.”
This revelation has also come with another; an answer to the question why the injury happened to him in the first place. To inspire others, including Pinkel.
“Coming back from something so bad, that’s negative, that’s a positive now … it’s an inspiration for a lot of people, not just him,” Josey said of Pinkel.
But make no mistake about it. Josey is grateful to be back for himself. So grateful, in fact, that he jokes he doesn’t complain about anything anymore. And whenever a notable athlete — such as South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore or Louisville basketball player Kevin Ware — suffers a knee injury, he feels for them, because he knows how it feels, and he knows the journey back isn’t an easy one.
Thing is, Josey’s isn’t done yet. There will be plenty more work to put in, plenty more questions about the state of his knee. But you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who isn’t rooting for him.
“It’s a great story,” Pinkel said. “And by the end of next season, I want it to be a remarkable story.”

COLUMBIA – — There’s still a long way to go in Missouri’s three-man quarterback derby, obviously, but redshirt freshman Maty Mauk on Saturday showed some of the promise that made him a highly touted prospect in the Class of 2012.

In the Tigers’ first scrimmage of the spring, Mauk completed 11 of 19 passes for a team-high 140 yards. He also showed a willingness to scramble out of the pocket — he ran for a team-best 81 yards on eight carries — and finished with a touchdown rushing, a touchdown passing and an interception.
“Maty’s mobility, that’s just kind of the way he is; that’s a part of his makeup,” said Tigers coach Gary Pinkel. “He’s got great feet, he can run, he’s got good speed. You can buy time and extend the play and make things happen.”
Pinkel added that Mauk has a tendency to always want to make the big play, which sometimes leads to mistakes. But quarterbacks coach Andy Hill said there’s a fine line between helping a player and stifling his creativity, and the staff is conscious of that with Mauk.
“He’s smart enough to know if it’s there or not,” Hill said. “I think when you do have a good set of legs as a quarterback, you do have a tendency to want to get out quicker than normal. But I think he stays in the pocket pretty well.”
Mauk is competing this spring against incumbent James Franklin, who completed 13 of 22 passes for 115 yards, a touchdown and an interception on Saturday. His touchdown pass, a 25-yard strike to a streaking Dorial Green-Beckham down the sideline, came just moments after his interception, which pleased Hill.
Redshirt freshman Corbin Berkstresser, the other man in the three-way competition, completed eight of 22 passes for 52 yards.
Hill said all three players shared the same number of reps with the first-team offense. And though he was pleased with some of the things they did, he noted that as a group, his quarterbacks were not as “sharp” as they had been in recent practices.
“There were flashes of very good things,” Hill said. “But at the same time, we’re going to be judged by how many times we turn the ball over. And all three of the guys made decisions where you’d want them to have the ball back. We’ve been better than that in our practices up to this point, so it’s kind of disappointing today that we had so many turnovers.”
Tempo a key in new offense
Saturday’s scrimmage provided the first glimpse of what Missouri’s offense will look like under new coordinator Josh Henson. There was a clear emphasis placed on increasing the tempo, as plays seemed to be called faster and players got to the line quicker than they did last year.
“It’s a huge change,” said redshirt freshman linebacker Michael Scherer. “The tempo, it will get to you defensively ... you get out there, and maybe the first two plays you’re alright. And then you’re out there huffing and puffing. When they go tempo, it will be a good thing for our offense.”
There were also very few empty sets — a staple of last year’s offense — in the scrimmage. The MU quarterback was often flanked by a running back and four receivers, with one being a tight end split out wide.
Speaking of Scherer …
One player who made a pair of standout plays on defense was Scherer, who intercepted two passes. On the first, he came down with the ball after cornerback John Gibson tipped it into the air. On the second, he said he read Franklin’s eyes and broke on the ball.
Scherer, who was third on the depth chart at middle linebacker (behind seniors Andrew Wilson and Michael Brennan) entering the spring, said he’s striving to earn his coaches’ trust so he can see some playing time in the team’s base packages.
“I’ve got to work on with my coverage,” Scherer said. “I had a pretty good day today in zone, but my man coverage needs to improve a lot.”
O-line takes shape
The first-team offensive line looked like this: Evan Boehm at center, Connor McGovern and Max Copeland at guard and Justin Britt and Mitch Morse at tackle. Ole Miss transfer Mitch Hall, a sophomore, rotated in for Copeland on the left side while sophomore Brad McNulty rotated in for McGovern.
Medical report
With senior Randy Ponder sitting out due to injury, sophomore David Johnson and redshirt freshman John Gibson rotated at first-team cornerback opposite senior E.J. Gaines. All three finished with two pass breakups apiece.
• Redshirt freshman linebacker Torey Boozer and senior tight end Eric Waters also sat out with injuries.
