Mizzou Links, 4-23-07

In all, I'd say this was a pretty good week for Mizzou sports...

  • A gorgeous day for the B&G Game, Pinkel shows up at the big tailgate (as noted below), and there's a pretty decent crowd there (for Mizzou, anyway). And nobody got seriously hurt (on the field or in the stands)!
  • Mizzou Softball thumped #5 ATM Saturday night and split the series overall. They are 9-2 overall, tied with Baylor (in the loss column, anyway) for the conference lead.
  • Mizzou Baseball won yet another road series, taking 2 of 3 from Baylor to move to 9-6 in conference (3rd overall, 1 game behind OSU for 2nd) and 28-12 overall.
  • Shernelle Nichols had another ridiculous day in Lawrence this weekend. A day after breaking the Barbados national record for the hammer throw, she broke the Barbados shot put record as well, putting her in the top 5 in the country in that category.
  • And finally, lost (by me) amid the football talk earlier this week was a nice profile of Linas Kleiza in the KC Star.
