    Mizzou recruiting up a storm

    Mizzou just landed Maty Mauk from Ohio today. He will be a monster QB for them. Couple that with keeping their top in state prospect (Boehm) and with guys like Ifedi, and Jonathan Williams on board, Mizzou is beating a bunch of blue bloods for these top level guys. I have never seen them recruit this well. I don't like this when it comes to us moving up the ranks of the Big 12 in the future.

    You can put all the talent in the world on the field, but if you cant coach and inspire it, its meaningless. I wouldnt worry about it until they prove it.

    Meh, we need to worry about winning battles with Baylor, TT, KU, and KSU right now. Mizzou has had a lot of success and the recruiting is just catching up.

    Um I think that Gary Pinkel and his staff have done pretty well so far coaching up players.

    exactly. I don't understand when people say Mizzou isn't good. They had two more first round pics this year and will have a shot at being one of top 3 or 4 teams in the league ever year. I'm actually surprised Pinkel is still at Mizzou.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Winning 10+ games in 3 of the last 4 years is bad how?

    Re: Mizzou recruiting up a storm

    Pinkle would've been **** canned if not for Chase Daniels, interesting how one player(qb) can change the program. we really need one of our young guns to do the same. Our all around talent if getting better imo, but one great qb takes you there twice as fast.

    Re: Mizzou recruiting up a storm

    Imo, Mizzou has been a sleeping giant that is in the process of waking up. They are the second most populous Big 12 state with no other college teams. The talent from St. Louis and KC provides a solid pool to pick from. It would appear that they are making progress towards building a fence around their border with regards to recruiting.

    Although it definitely will be tougher to face Mizzou, I like that a North school is becoming stronger. I would love to see "the forgotten 4"...Baylor doesn't count, hold their weight and become more competitive with OU/UT.

    It's been too long since we knocked off Mizzou though. I'd love to see it in 2011!

    I don't see what is so much greater about their commit list right now. A couple 4 stars, mostly 3 stars. That is the level of recruiting we will need to be at (and so far, it looks like we are headed that way) to compete. The QB doesn't look like he's any more special than the 2 we have either.

    Re: Mizzou recruiting up a storm

    Kid's stats are crazy! 69 TD passes his Jr season - is that a typo?
    Seriously, though, I think we should focus more of our recruiting on Mizzou & Minnesota. Both have more people with only 1 large State university and are contiguous to us.

    Mizzou is picking up more higher-rated, out of state recruits, so we could potentially pick up more players from Missouri as they bypass their in-state kids - as Iowa passes on in-state kids who they hope greyshirt/walk-on yet have D-1 talent.

    Still, I am very pleased with our current commits and the staff's recruiting so far. It appears to be ramping up, but it will be a steady process. Nose to the grindstone, methodical yet passionate. Emulates from our leader - CPR

    But back to the OP - could not agree more. Mizzou's current commits are pretty numerous to date and appear pretty salty

    Mizzou is strong and getting stronger. But that's life in the Big XII. Hopefully for them Pinkel sticks around.

    The difference is stats, recruiting hype, and offers. That is the important thing here. We have not had to beat a bunch of schools for our guys yet. they had almost no other current BCS offers. Mizzou is going into Big 10 country and beating out Michigan and the likes to get these prospects. That should be looked on as an impressive feat.

    You do realize one of our QB commits is an Elite 11 finalist, right? Maty Mauk isn't. He's just in the heart of overhyped big 10 territory. Michigan and ND haven't exactly lit it up in recent years, either.
