7tiger:: Hey Brad, can you hear me?
Brad Burgess:: What's up?
Brad Burgess:: Looks like there is graphic mode and text mode.
Brad Burgess:: I'll stay in text mode to transcript things tonight.
Brad Burgess:: Ready for football to get rolling?
Brad Burgess:: Hey Joey
MUJoey:: what's up fellas?
MUJoey:: nice piece by Josh Clark.
Brad Burgess:: The folks will be trickling in...
Brad Burgess:: Yes it was.
7tiger:: Sorry, Brad, I got locked up and had to get out
MUJoey:: good news about Franklin being such a stud.
Brad Burgess:: Josh has established a nice relationship already with the coaches
Brad Burgess:: No prob 7tiger
Brad Burgess:: So Kirby thinks Chase will be the next commitment?
Brad Burgess:: A bit of wishful thinking perhaps?
7tiger:: JK thinks Humphrey will be next, but he's starting to feel good about Chase
MUJoey:: What REALLY sucks is that Darnell Terrell is going to Coffeyville.
Brad Burgess: Hi Toger
MUJoey: Where did you see Kirby say Chase was next?
Toger: Hello all
Brad Burgess: He mentioned it in a chat the other evening.
7tiger: How many are we expecting tonight?
Brad Burgess: I'm expecting around a dozen or so...?
Brad Burgess: So will Pinkel keep the goatee?
7tiger: Didn't he say he planned to shave it?
MUJoey: Brad, by the way, sorry about calling the guy from North Carolina a schmuck. He was so arrogant and disrespectful to Downtown.
Brad Burgess: I hadn't heard.
Brad Burgess: Joey, no sweat. I was totally playing with the guy.
Toger: Are you expecting drecar and king to show?
Brad Burgess: Downtown rocks in my book.
Brad Burgess: I'm expecting them to be here, but ...? drecar said he would have to stay awake... ;-)
MUJoey: Downtown really rocks in any Tiger fan's book.
Brad Burgess: Can you believe Xzavie Jackson may be eligible?
7tiger: It is 7:00 p.m. where drecar lives; past his bedtime
Brad Burgess: Hi Lake and JoCo.
MUJoey: That is great. His numbers are amazing. Defensive End!!???
Brad Burgess: 7tiger...not really, but when you lead the hard life that drecar leads, you just never know!
JoCoTiger: Hey all. Are we having fun yet?
Brad Burgess: Joey, that's where I'd put him.
LakeTiger: Must be talking about Brian Smith?
7tiger: No, X Jackson
LakeTiger: Is he qualified?
7tiger: Apparently, it's looking good
Brad Burgess: Xzavie Jackson is just a freak of nature. He has Smith's speed and much more size.
MUJoey: What a shame about Terrell, though.
Brad Burgess: Hi Mav
Brad Burgess: Hi motom
Brad Burgess: Big shame about Terrell, although not unexpected
JoCoTiger: XJack can't qualify. He didn't go to K-State
MUJoey: Do you really think he can grow into a DE?
motom: Happy to be here!
Brad Burgess: Very funny JoCo. Yes, the Snake fans are almost as myopic as the KU hoops fans.
LakeTiger: KSnake fans will crap their pants if he qualifies!
Brad Burgess: Joey...no question. He's already pretty big
JoCoTiger: Yep, lord Snyder knows all.
7tiger: Josh Barbo might also cause them to void their bowels
Brad Burgess: Lake, if you believe Downtown's report, only Terrell will not qualify
LakeTiger: In Downtown I trust...
JoCoTiger: They didn't really want Barbo, they didn't get him either.
Brad Burgess: I wonder where we will play all of those TEs from last year's class?
Brad Burgess: Welcome JPRock and Blaker!
JPROCK1: Hey Fellas
Blaker32: Hello all
Brad Burgess: Welcome Rick
MUJoey: It always amazes me the arrogance of Snake fans. That emaw thing is the most retarded thing I have ever heard. It is freaking Mnahattan kansas!!!
Brad Burgess: JP, where would you play Xzavie Jackson?
Brad Burgess: DE?
JPROCK1: Tigers need some DE`s
Brad Burgess: Yes they do.
MUJoey: and DT's
Brad Burgess: I think Brian Smith will surprise some folks.
JPROCK1: Yes he will Brad
Brad Burgess: Rucker is another athletic freak. His triplejump is crazy.
Brad Burgess: Welcome Alumnus and Master Drecar
MUJoey: Especially at Rucker's size.
Brad Burgess: Naper...just like the old days, eh?
Brad Burgess: No doubt. How many truly built kids do you see exceling at triple jump?
Brad Burgess: mpls...!
Brad Burgess: This is really like old home week.
motom: Earl Stevens has really put on some weight. Can he help in the future?
LakeTiger: If Rucker is a freak what would Jerrill Humphrey be?????
NAPERTIGER: Yes Brad!I really like your site!
JoCoTiger: A Supa Freak!
Brad Burgess: Naper...thanks. We have awesome moderators and posters!
Brad Burgess: Sader...!
Sader: What's up Brad...
Brad Burgess: Nada
drecar: Man that was exciting waiting in the other room
7tiger: we're up to 16; is Stu gonna be here?
Brad Burgess: What were you waiting for, drecar?
mplsTiger: Did you make any new friends?
Brad Burgess: I hope so 7.
NAPERTIGER: Hey JP who are the top 20 instate recruits this year?
drecar: the wheat to grow
Sader: We all clicked on the Chat link under the Message board link
JPROCK1: Humphrey is a lean muscled machine...anybody else seen him?
Brad Burgess: Naper, what sport and what class?
(Rage Dave joined)
Brad Burgess: Oh....!??
MUJoey: drecar, i had to miss it for some BSwith my girlfriend. Anything juicy?
MizzouRick: Drecar..What the scoop on Horton
Brad Burgess: I better get rid of that thing.
JPROCK1: Top 20? I hate lists lol...however...
NAPERTIGER: Football 2004!
Brad Burgess: Dave, what's up?
Rage Dave: hey, this thing is a bit odd, trying to get the hang of it
drecar: Whatever eyesears says bet on the other way
Sader: Drecar...what were you alluding to with Donovan earlier?
drecar: He lives with eyesears
Rage Dave: Did I miss anything
Brad Burgess: Lake, to answer your question, Humphrey is another tremendous athlete. He and Franklin are going to be scary good at WR.
mplsTiger: What is it with the state this year?
Brad Burgess: Where is eyesears?
Sader: You don't think Humphrey will outgrow the position?
drecar: Eating donuts
Brad Burgess: I think Humphrey might, Sader
mplsTiger: Was anything put in the collective water supply about 18 years ago?
Sader: He'd be hellacious on D
Brad Burgess: I don't see Mizzou landing Gallimore.
Brad Burgess: Sader...or as an H Back on offense.
JPROCK1: Eric is at the Nike Hoop Jamboree...which I should be
LakeTiger: With Pinkel all things are possible!
Brad Burgess: Welcome Oz!
drecar: He is closer than you think
JPROCK1: Don`t be so sure,Brad....it`s still possible
MizzouRick: did humphrey commit?
TigerinOz: Hi ya Brad!! sorry to be late
Rage Dave: Kirby thinks mizzou has a good chance at gallimore
drecar: Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! silent
Brad Burgess: It is possible JP, but I think he really wants to play at Michigan or some place like that.
JPROCK1: Gallimore will go Big 10 Ohio St if they offered,Michigan or Mizzou
drecar: Not sure they will take him
Brad Burgess: No problem Oz. We aren't formal around here. ;-)
JPROCK1: Yep, Has Big 10 ties
drecar: Takes a lot of the game off
NAPERTIGER: How about the wr Robinson out of KC is Mizzou recruiting him?
Brad Burgess: I really like Riggs. Gallimore may be better right now, but Riggs has so much upside.
Brad Burgess: Ah, that's better
drecar: Patton will surprise early
Brad Burgess: Welcome MWIA2004
JPROCK1: I`ll take Jackson...and win a lot of games
TigerinOz: Pee or more beer Brad?
Brad Burgess: Welcome 91
JoCoTiger: JP, tell us why you like Jackson over Patton.
mutiger91: finally found it
MizzouRick: Naper..who the Robinson kid out of kc
Brad Burgess: Oz...computer glitch
Sader: Is there any chance we'd take both Patton and Jackson?
mplsTiger: If we get Jackson, I'll be thrilled.
Brad Burgess: Sader...no question about it.
TigerinOz: Yeah, know all about computer glitches!
drecar: and the qb from SA
Mizzouwinsitall2004: thanks for having me brad
mutiger91: how 'bout both Pattons and Jackson?
Sader: I really think jackson's going to pull the trigger
JPROCK1: Besides just being a man among boys physically...he`s a warrior...refuses to lose..
Sader: The QB from SA-at what position?
NAPERTIGER: Robinson is a tall wr out of Kc,don't know much more.
mplsTiger: I get that feeling too, sader.
Brad Burgess: It's possible we'd take three, but I don't think we'd get THOSE three
drecar: no way on nP
drecar: wherever he wants to play did you see his speed?
Brad Burgess: JP, who do you like better, Jackson or Chase?
MUAlumnus: QB from SA supposedly a good safety prospect
JPROCK1: He carried Webster on his back...just took over...huge heart to go along with that huge body
JPROCK1: and his passing is under rated
mutiger91: so what about humphrey?
Brad Burgess: How would you compare Jackson's body to Corby Jones?
Brad Burgess: 91, the word is that he has given a silent commitment
drecar: about 4 inches taller
mutiger91: why silent?
JPROCK1: I think they are 1 and 1a Brad....but Jackson is a fav of mine
Brad Burgess: I liked Danny's line about the dog chipping his tooth on Jackson
drecar: his booty isnt as big
Mizzouwinsitall2004: when does the lithuanian national team start playing?
JPROCK1: Bigger then Corby....more muscular
Brad Burgess: 91, I don't know for sure. I expect an official announcement by Sunday, however.
drecar: about two weeks
mplsTiger: Heitert loves Jackson. That's good enough for me.
JoCoTiger: JP, me likey the Jackson skinny. Thanks.
JPROCK1: he`s about 6`3"225 all muscle...runs like a fullback
mutiger91: good. I want to lock 'em down with a big sign that tells everyone else to keep their damn hands off
LakeTiger: I would like to see Patton, Jackson, Temple & Gallimore commit...then watch the floodgates open...
drecar: Patton has the best arm but needs better mechanics
JPROCK1: big arm....refuses to lose
mutiger91: wouldn't that be the definition of floodgates opening?
Sader: Could DJ project to another position if we get both and Patton win's QB job?
Brad Burgess: I want us to have both QBs and turn them loose. May the best player win.
mplsTiger: Lake, that is a clean lockdown..
Blaker32: Lake if all those sign I think the flood gates would have already been open\
LakeTiger: I think you would see kids lining up to commit then...
Brad Burgess: Good point Blaker
JoCoTiger: Yep, the damn would break if all those kids commit.
JPROCK1: Yes...he could play LB or DE...TE...good athlete...plays hoops
TigerinOz: How's Paulding's wrist doing?
Brad Burgess: I think Mizzou is in the best position recruiting wise as they have been in 20+ years.
JPROCK1: for Webster and was mong leading socrers and rebounders
mplsTiger: It's a nice year talent-wise to get such a haul.
JPROCK1: Totally Brad!!
Blaker32: I saw Paulding play this week, he was wearing a splint but playing well, really shooting it.
Sader: Brad, any scoop? I may have to put the little one down here soon. She's been a handful last two nights and wife took care of her last night....I owe-plus I'm out of town next four nights.
mutiger91: We need to beat Nebraska so that Mike can get his picture taken on top of the goalposts wearing black and gold this time
LakeTiger: Go 9-3 this year & then watch the fun begin!
Mizzouwinsitall2004: i agree about the 20+ yrs, our basketball team is preseason numb 3 in the nation
Brad Burgess: And if Mizzou really does pull an 8-win season...watch out!
TigerinOz: Great thanks Blaker!
JPROCK1: Grea talent this year..next year and some good ones ID`s for 06,too
Brad Burgess: I love seeing Nebraska fighting KU for recruits in football.
mutiger91: and KU winning :)O
Brad Burgess: Precisely
mplsTiger: Will nebraska be shut out of MO again?
mutiger91: only time I root for KU (recruiting against NU)
TigerinOz: Yeah-- ManJiggle is quite a recruitment poster isn't he?
Brad Burgess: Mizzou isn't even offering Lance Brandenburgh from Aquinas. Nebraska is all over him.
Mizzouwinsitall2004: our baseball team just went to the ncaa tourney, our football team is preseason numb 25 in nation, and bball numb 3, it's a great time to be a tiger fan
JPROCK1: They pull 8 wins and a bowl and do it in style with Smith and you`ll see the national kids come
LakeTiger: KU nows has Abe Vigoda & Curly in the same athletic dept...
JoCoTiger: I love KU's total football cluster, uhh, mess. If they never win another game, I'll be thrilled.
mutiger91: It's gotta be 9 wins
Brad Burgess: JP...couldn't agree more.
mutiger91: I have $$$ on 9 wins
Brad Burgess: I will be happy with 8 wins, but I could easily see more.
Sader: Hope ya win 91!
JPROCK1: Brandenburgh is a nice HS player....but the Tigers are in on better talent
mutiger91: like Van Alexander
LakeTiger: Alexander is faster than Brandenburgh...
mutiger91: by .2
Brad Burgess: If we thump Nebraska in game 6, there are a lot of downhill games after that. Good teams in Columbia, etc.
motom: I collect $10 if we win 7.
JPROCK1: Alexander is better
Brad Burgess: Alexander is a speed freak.
drecar: next year we could have as many as 10 legitimate d1 lb's
mutiger91: great quote from NU board today
Brad Burgess: I spoke with Chase Patton's dad one night. You should have heard him rave about Alexander...!
Sader: in state or on team?
mutiger91: "All MU receivers are bigger than 6'2" No husker receivers are bigger than 6'2""
Brad Burgess: Van Alexander is an urban legend in mid-mo.
mutiger91: rural legend?
LakeTiger: Doesn't having Barry Odom & Alexander at Mizzou help in recruiting Chase?
drecar: Ray and Bracey soon will be too
Brad Burgess: Lake...it certainly should.
Brad Burgess: 91...good point!
Blaker32: (91 columbia is a budding metropolis
mutiger91: needs to bloom
mplsTiger: It's amazing the number of freak athletes in the state in one year.
Brad Burgess: Ray and Bracey will be a factor sooner or later.
Sader: Too bad they're all DB/WR!
Brad Burgess: mpls...agreed
drecar: two years from now could be better
mutiger91: where were all these guys 2 years ago
JoCoTiger: Yep, would like more DE's and DT's. But all in good time
mplsTiger: and the fact that we're getting all of 'em!
Brad Burgess: mpls...I wonder how many other years the bootheel had similar kids and we just never bothered to look?
JPROCK1: MPLs....wait til next year....there are alot more...speed,spped and more speed
Brad Burgess: The SEC always seemed to look.
7tiger: Two years ago? They were all going to Michigan State and Wisconsin
TigerinOz: Think you're right Brad-- nobody looking
mutiger91: just visiting for MSU and Wisky
mutiger91: ok maybe not Wisky
mplsTiger: Brad, lots, for what I hear.
Brad Burgess: We couldn't even get Sam Pittman to visit freaking Kirkwood!!! How would anybody ever get down to Cape?
Mizzouwinsitall2004: brad.. i live near the bootheel and there are some talented kids in this area
drecar: I would put this years combined all stars against any state
Mizzouwinsitall2004: i live in cape
mutiger91: drecar, even Tejas?
drecar: YEP Qb's
Brad Burgess: MWIA...you know that that area always has a handful of really good athletes.
mplsTiger: Pittman, what a lowpoint in all of Mizzou athletics.
Mizzouwinsitall2004: yes they do, and this year is no exception
Brad Burgess: My favorite all-time story was the Mike Anderson fax episode.
JPROCK1: True Drecar....next years,too....that`s why you`ll see Mizzou reduce it`s recruiting area
Brad Burgess: No more Missouri in Florida
Brad Burgess: Yeah.
JoCoTiger: That whole 1 year desperation overhaul was sad.
JoCoTiger: That whole 1 year desperation overhaul was sad.
Sader: how hard is it to expand back out if talent level drops off instate?
NAPERTIGER: Brad lets stop talking about the dark times of Larry!Pinkel is just the man!
drecar: send four to Texas and the rest stay here
Brad Burgess: Rocky!!!
Brad Burgess: drecar...agree with that.
Brad Burgess: Colo!
Rage Dave: What about national recruits
Colotiger: What have I missed?
JPROCK1: They`ll come Rage
Brad Burgess: Everything
drecar: almost all will come from Missouri this year
Mizzouwinsitall2004: brad.. how do we sit with the 3 kids from new madrid?
Colotiger: Damn! Figures
Brad Burgess: Colo, I've been transcripting the whole chat. No worries
mplsTiger: I think the idea is that with a ton of success, it shouldn't be too hard to go more national.
motom: Let's not forget to recruit Illinois w/in a 50 mile radius of St. Louis.
JPROCK1: Oh...we just predicted the entire class we`ll sign and profiled them all,Colo :)
drecar: That is part of Missouri
Brad Burgess: MWIA...I know we are interested in one of them, but it may come down to numbers.
Brad Burgess: Rocky: should I stay or should I go...!
TigerinOz: Brad-- you don't think we'll hit Texas and Okla in recruiting in the future?
JPROCK1: Exactly,Brad...Givens is the best of the group
Sader: Is the IL commit too short for Pinkel?
Colotiger: Who will be the 2 Qbs and which one will commit first?
mutiger91: I say in-state duo
drecar: couple of surprises from Moore methinks
Mizzouwinsitall2004: is givens our most probable?
Brad Burgess: Okay, I've had my spies looking into who that MONSTER from Moore is...
Colotiger: Has Pinkel given up recruiting Pa. and Ohio?
JPROCK1: Gut tells me Jackson and Patton....Jackson first....he`s getting itchy
Brad Burgess: I don't think we have offered him yet.
Rocky59: My computer is not java enabled. I had to get on my wife's and then she knocked me off. How do you enable java?
Brad Burgess: I kind of want Jackson first.
drecar: givens is a given
mutiger91: rockyt, it's a browser security setting
7tiger: Gotta run (at least temporarily); I'll be back later if I can swing it
Mizzouwinsitall2004: thanks drecar
Colotiger: We seriously haven't offered Jackson? If Jackson commits, and then Patton, will that spook Jackson?
JPROCK1: I think we`ll get him Brad....he loves the staff
Brad Burgess: No, we've offered Jackson.
drecar: First you brew it then you drink it
mutiger91: that too
Brad Burgess: JP, do you know anything about that monster LB from Moore, OK?
drecar: He says he been dreaming about playing for the tigers Jackson
JPROCK1: Don`t be surprised if Jackson commits by end of summer
Sader: The freak in the pictures from KC? Holy smokes!
Brad Burgess: Sader...exactly.
drecar: He is a holy molyer
Brad Burgess: The kid looks like an NFL player already
Sader: that's just not right for a HS kid.
Brad Burgess: Hell no!
mutiger91: it's right if he's coming here
Brad Burgess: Can you imagine lining up across from THAT?
JPROCK1: Not really Brad....I know the oklahoma kids are popping up all over the place
drecar: We own Moore
LakeTiger: JP...thoughts on Nick Patterson & Arthur Miller?
Colotiger: What about the kid from Broken Arrow?
Brad Burgess: I wonder about Patterson and Miller not ending up at MU?
Sader: Drecar...what's the connection?
Brad Burgess: JP, have you seen Jason Hayth?
drecar: great recruiting over a sustained time
drecar: Jp how you reading Horton
JPROCK1: Patterson family has big dreams.....Ohio St. Notre Dame,etc....don`t think the feelings are mutual ..yet
Brad Burgess: I'm getting the feeling that our staff is exhausted after the Linas affair.
MizzouRick: Is the mu-Iowa st. moving to turkey week-end
drecar: I think Quin feels he has him and brown
mutiger91: sure seems that way
Blaker32: I got that feel this week as well
Brad Burgess: Rick, it sure looks that way
JPROCK1: Miller is an enigma....other matters outside of football could be a ?
Brad Burgess: What do you all think about that change...? Good thing?
drecar: Like grades
mutiger91: great thing
mutiger91: helps us prepare for bowl
LakeTiger: I'm all for games on ABC...
NAPERTIGER: Brad do you hear anything from Riggs'dad about how camp went?
mutiger91: and recruit
Brad Burgess: I agree with all of those comments.
JPROCK1: I don`t know what happened at Kirkwood....but they have a bucnh of talent coming through their system...would be nice to get some
mutiger91: jp....it's always nice to get some ;)
JPROCK1: lol Well said
Mizzouwinsitall2004: will brad smith be considered a heisman canidate this yr?
Brad Burgess: Naper, they have nothing but great things to say. Kyle is just getting stronger by the day. He's also not even 17 yet. Imagine how much more he could grow.
drecar: Pittman happened at kirkwood and the twins - Ford was brutally honest with the coach
JPROCK1: Ahhh the twins...pass
Brad Burgess: MWIA, not this year...NEXT year
mutiger91: how does honesty hurt
mutiger91: rather not have them blowing sunshine
Brad Burgess: Uncle Larry wouldn't have passed on the twins...I guarantee you.
JPROCK1: A TON of ego here in STL
Mizzouwinsitall2004: brad.. he may make himself one, whether they consider him one or not
mplsTiger: The twins? I'm missing something.
drecar: the kid from washington at Quins camp is a top 10 player
JPROCK1: The Smith kids
Brad Burgess: mpls...it was a year or two ago.
JoCoTiger: Twins went to ISU didn't they?
Mizzouwinsitall2004: drecar.. i think dave telep has him numb 1 in shooting guards
mplsTiger: I'm drawing a blank for some reason. That's OK.
drecar: coach wade told Ford they were as good as Doyle and ford replied we can't beat nu with doyles
Blaker32: Drecar whats the story on the kid from Washington
JPROCK1: Yes....they`ll realize their mistake this year
Brad Burgess: mpls...it's a lack of foie gras in your system!
Brad Burgess: drecar...and he was right
mutiger91: that stuff is nasty, Brad
drecar: Was at camp and has a great relationship with all of the coaches already
mplsTiger: Isn't that everyone's problem?
mplsTiger: '91, shame on you.
Brad Burgess: 91...if it's good, it's very good. If it isn't...well, stay away.
drecar: Jp i assume you mean ISU
JPROCK1: I understand young Tyler has been averaging a double double at the hoop jamboree
mutiger91: I kept getting it served to me on Air France...yuck
mplsTiger: On an airplane?!!!!! OMG!!!
Brad Burgess: Young Tyler...future Mizzou star forward?
JPROCK1: That`s the one :)
Brad Burgess: I like him....!
JoCoTiger: Tyler 1st commit of 05 Tyler?
drecar: jp i have a lot of people saying tyler before this season starts your thoughts
Colotiger: What about Eberhard's kid ... is Quin going to take a hard look at him?
LakeTiger: Any word on Luke Zeller?
JPROCK1: Talk about fundementally sound!
Brad Burgess: JoCo...think so!
Mizzouwinsitall2004: brad, i would like to make it a family affair of tyler and ben
JPROCK1: I say Tyler before his season ends
Brad Burgess: Why not MWIA?
Brad Burgess: I agree with JP. I see Tyler committing EARLy.
drecar: I don't think we have a chance with Zeller
Brad Burgess: Too bad.
Mizzouwinsitall2004: i sure hope you're right i would like to see tyler signed before the big rush on him
Brad Burgess: I would love to have that tie to Eberhard.
Colotiger: drecar -- Do you think Xzavier Jackson will actually qualify? That's major good news if he does.
LakeTiger: John Brown & Al Eberhard made me a Mizzou basketball fan...
Brad Burgess: What are everybody's impressions of the new turf? Love it...hate it...why?
NAPERTIGER: Jp or drecar name a couple of 04 football prospect sleepers?
drecar: I would faint if he did but Downtown says he did so he did
Blaker32: Love it, saw it in person this week
mplsTiger: The turf is fine. If GP likes it, I like it.
LakeTiger: Love it!
JPROCK1: Imani Butler,Flynt Clemons, Tyler McNeely....geeez...in Missouri...theres a lot
Colotiger: Well, I really like what I've seen in the pictures. Yeah, I'm not wild about the logo, but it will be more recognizable on TV.
drecar: There area a coupe in texas the coaches just don't want to give out their names
LakeTiger: JP...Michael Keenan?
Brad Burgess: Lake, drecar and I sat right behind John Brown at the Mizzou vs. UCLA regional game two years ago. As my dad used to say, "The Great John Brown". He was awesome, and a real gentleman as well.
JPROCK1: Sylvester Gibson....it`s a deep year Naper
JPROCK1: He`s not a sleeper anymore....kids a stud LB
Brad Burgess: Yeah, what about Michael Keenan?
LakeTiger: He was great! I was pure Mizzou football before John Brown from Dixon MO showed up!
drecar: I think he and willie smith were are two best ever
Brad Burgess: MU hasn't offered yet, have we?
NAPERTIGER: Jp who are those guys and have they been offered?
drecar: Keenan will sign imho
JPROCK1: He loves Mizzou....ya hear a lot of that these days amongst the kids....
Brad Burgess: They would still be counting Willie Smith's points if a three-point arc existed back then!
mplsTiger: OK, who are our next offers? In state, I mean.
drecar: They have already offered about 20
Colotiger: JP: Why hasn't MU shown much apparent interest in the two Kansas linemen -- Hasselhorst (sp?) and I foget the other guy -- from Cherryvale.
JPROCK1: None offered yet....most of them I IDed on that list I posted back in February
JoCoTiger: I've seen Keenan play. The kid can run.
mutiger91: Haselhorst was a lot smaller than Riggs in his picture
Brad Burgess: Mizzou has offered over thirty kids in Missouri/OK/Texas so far.
MizzouRick: Royals-10 StLouis-4 after 7
mplsTiger: Wow, that many? I didn't realize.
Mizzouwinsitall2004: i talked to a guy the other day that was at a pick-up game in columbia and he said the paulding conley match-up was real fun to watch, he said they were actually playing defense and getting after each other pretty hard
drecar: No chance on Boss so why waste time
Brad Burgess: Concur drecar.
JPROCK1: Haselhorst has been offered from what I understand
JoCoTiger: Don't jinx it Rick.
NAPERTIGER: drecarnI only know of the big 13,who else do you know?
Blaker32: I was at the scrimmage I posted about as much on the other board
Brad Burgess: JP, wasn't he on Nightrider?
mplsTiger: OU or the Sssssnake.
Rage Dave: Royals are going down (or something like that)
drecar: Wait until Conley gets back in playing shape he will make RP a Wooden winner
Brad Burgess: Welcome CPA
Mizzouwinsitall2004: blaker... how did you think conley looked?
mutiger91: make up your mind
JPROCK1: However,you talking about 18-25 schollies....can`t give em all away yet
mutiger91: why not?
mutiger91: if they are the best guys...
Colotiger: Any JUCOs that have been, or are likely to be, offered?
JPROCK1: lol Brad...I only know him from Baywatch
MizzouCPA: greetings brad...and all
Rage Dave: sleepers can come up
Brad Burgess: True, but it would be nice to have 80% of the class tucked away to concentrate on the tough sells.
JPROCK1: No jucos...doubt you`ll see any
Brad Burgess: JP, you must be younger than me.
drecar: May break their legs
mplsTiger: I was still under the impression we were holding out in-state for a while (at 13).
mutiger91: let Manjiggle sign all the Jucos
JoCoTiger: Has the need for digging up sleepers lessened with a higher level of interest and more MO kids this year/
drecar: Might be a monster from coffeyville
Colotiger: What would seem to be the wildcard in all of this is if Solich is canned, a big name is hired, and NU puts the heat on some early commits.
mplsTiger: No Jucos? Maybe a DE?
Blaker32: I really liked what I saw, he pushed Paulding and always answered his scoring. I would have like to have seen the teams switched so the Conley was the primary option on his team. He worked the ball but you could tell he wanted to take over
Brad Burgess: Maybe the monster from Coffeyville...!
mutiger91: colo, let's beat NU and take their cards...
drecar: Dont forget Conley is coming off a bad foot injury
Brad Burgess: I can't wait to beat NU this year!
JPROCK1: Can you all get used to the class being wrapped up by xmas and then cherry picking some national blue chippers?
Brad Burgess: I can.
Colotiger: Works for me.
Mizzouwinsitall2004: that's good, i want to see that kind of drive out of him
mplsTiger: It's wierd not being concerned about NU recruiting anymore.
mutiger91: I don't know how, JP
drecar: Blaker how much bigger is Conley than from his frosh pictures
Brad Burgess: mpls...no kidding. The normal order has changed.
JoCoTiger: YESSSSSSSSS! I like the cherry picking part.
MizzouCPA: me too JP..... wouldnt mind acting like the big boys for a change
Brad Burgess: Hell, if Snake can have good football, hell has already frozen over.
Colotiger: Where do you think Richard ends up playing?
mplsTiger: GP said it two and a half years ago: Put it to bed by X-mas.
Mizzouwinsitall2004: blaker..how did pulley run the team as a point guard not a scorer?
JPROCK1: It`s coming if this year goes as I think it will
Brad Burgess: Do you all realize that it has been a decade since we have beaten Snake in football?
drecar: Everyone bring some red doubleknit pants and white patent leather belts to the NU game for the bonfire after
mplsTiger: Exactly. In his third recruiting class.
mutiger91: Well, it's been 25 years against the fuskers...I want that badly
JPROCK1: This is their last year to make serious hay....paybacks are gonna be a bitch for them
Sader: Little ones down-put her to bed every night listening to Marching Mizzou CD.
Brad Burgess: I want Nebraska the most, but I would have never believed we could go a decade without beating Snake.
Blaker32: He is a little bigger than the pictures, he is about the same height as Pauliding give or take and inch, but Paulding has about ten to fifteen pounds on him. The guy who really surprised me was Gardner, much bigger than I thought he would be
JoCoTiger: I'm reminded often BB. Snake is #1 on my "Tigers kick their ass" list.
Brad Burgess: Good for you Sader! You are a good dad.
mutiger91: Sounds like a proper upbringing, Sader
drecar: They got shut out badly in the offensive skill positions last year
Sader: I'm trying...
mutiger91: need to put you up for a parenting award
MizzouCPA: JPR...I ll ask the same question I asked of Jon Kirby last nite.......if this season shows 8 -9+ wins, a good showing, maybe even a win, in a bowl...how MONSTER will Feb's class be?
Brad Burgess: JoCo, where you live, they would be!
mplsTiger: There are obvious teams we want to beat, but putting the world right again and doing the Ssssnake has to happen....soon.
Mizzouwinsitall2004: blaker.. i thing gardner is going to surprise alot of us, he is a great athlete
Sader: 91-were you a member of band for must current CD?
mutiger91: I marched '87 and '8u8
Sader: Good stuff
LakeTiger: drecar...has Telep said Mizzou has a 25% shot at getting Horton yet?
Colotiger: Any notable no-shows among the newcomers in Columbia so far?
JoCoTiger: I know some Huskers too, but they are pretty good folks for the most part. Surprising huh.
Brad Burgess: Lake...HA ;-)
drecar: Coming soon I'm sure
JPROCK1: Godzilla monster like....9 outta top 10....some natioanls we haven`t mentioned yet
Sader: I think the weeks off before both NU and CU are going to be really beneficial!
Brad Burgess: JoCo, it's easy to be a great guy when your team never loses!!!
Colotiger: JP: You haven't mentioned yet or you haven't heard of yet?
Blaker32: I don't know how he will do. Granted I didn't get to see gardner in the best setting he was forced to play in the post and guard Kevin Young. He is good sized really needs to work on his handles and when I saw him he struggled a little with his shot, though it was only one time
MizzouRick: after 8 .....kc 10-4
drecar: I heard from a very solid source the NCAA will be sniffing in Fayettevillle
drecar: I heard from a very solid source the NCAA will be sniffing in Fayettevillle
LakeTiger: Brad...couldn't get Telep or Clark tonight?
JPROCK1: What Colo?
JoCoTiger: BB, I guess the test will be this fall
mutiger91: drecar, they may have to hold their noses
MizzouCPA: JPR.....JK said the same.....his words were "friggin unreal"
Brad Burgess: Lake. Josh knew about it. Maybe he got lost! Dave is busy this time of the year.
drecar: following roy
JPROCK1: He`s right....very friggin
Brad Burgess: Welcome RedCampus
Brad Burgess: CPA...who were you referring to?
Blaker32: Alright guys its been real but I have got to go
Brad Burgess: Thanks Blaker.
JPROCK1: unreal....I don`t remember anything like this....closest was the TVZ year
JoCoTiger: Drecar, are you referring to Heath and the NCAA?
Mizzouwinsitall2004: does anyone know how josh's knees are doing? is he having anything done to them this summer?
Brad Burgess: drecar, I'd be careful about what I'd smell down there.
mutiger91: well, lets hope the results are better than the TVZ year
Colotiger: JP: You said there would be some nationals "we haven't mentioned yet". Do you mean you haven't mentioned them or you haven't heard of them yet.
Sader: NO all star games!
drecar: You guys know Quin and Floyd on the tube on sunday in sTlouis
MizzouCPA: BRAD...Jon Kirby, over at the competition
Brad Burgess: Sader...! concur.
Sader: Wish i was going to be home to see that interview!
Brad Burgess: CPA...who did he say was unreal? I missed the context?
RedCampus: Sorry I'm late, Brad, how could I find the text of what has already been said? Thanks.
JPROCK1: I mean they know about Mizzou and are keeping an eye on them...the year goes as planned and I think you`ll see some new names pop up
JPROCK1: You can thank Brad Smith for this
JPROCK1: Talk about your perfect poster child
mutiger91: I'll thank him when we win 9 and I collect my money
MizzouCPA: BRAD......the question was, how MONSTER would Febs class be if we win 8 - 9+ this fall
Brad Burgess: BTW, for what its worth, Jon is a good guy and we've always been friendly. I don't consider them the competition. I love getting good Mizzou info no matter where it comes from
drecar: with the new arena and a great year this year the future looks great in bball
Rage Dave: Heard Floyd said Jmac never in danger of leaving
Brad Burgess: CPA...got ya. Concur. Very monster.
Sader: I was surprised last night to hear about the footbal facility expansion!
JPROCK1: Jon is a good guy....does a great job...and I don`t like recruiting gurus lol
Brad Burgess: Dave. Talk about a bunch of nonsense? Has there ever been a bigger pile of crap than that whole story?
Brad Burgess: Welcome mustone
drecar: unless i misunderstood jk i believe he has heard the same thing about hogville
Sader: Was no story! that's the pile of crap!
Brad Burgess: Sader...exactly.
Rage Dave: Floyd and Snyder pretty much said it was overblown pile of poop... not those exact words of course
Colotiger: Brad Smith comment brings me back to my question about recruiting Ohio and Pa. Seems like with Pinkel's background and with Smith being from the area, they might still try to mind that area. But are they trying?
drecar: dj was the source for floyd
MizzouRick: Good nite guys-great job Brad
JPROCK1: It was a story....that was made up
Sader: Saw DJ this morning before his tourney-nice black T with Tiger right in middle of his chest!
Rage Dave: dj was floyd
NAPERTIGER: JP tell us something about Butler and McNeely? Have we ofered Keenan?
mutiger91: hard to recruit Ohio now against OSU
drecar: there are so many good young kids in missouri pinkel knows if we lock the state down we can win championships
Rage Dave: I still think dj has no business working for the tigers
JPROCK1: Tough with Michigan and Ohio St there to get the top kids Colo
JPROCK1: They pretty mcuh own it...and now with Pitt and Penn St will be back
JoCoTiger: Yep, Tressell and national championship makeit tough.
drecar: Imagine quin having to play golf with him yesterday
Mizzouwinsitall2004: why are we the only ones that can see this witch hunt by the st louis media? everyone else seems to think we are thin skinned, are they crazy?
Brad Burgess: Dave, they moved Corby out to have a spot for DJ. Let's face it, there's an old saying about keeping your friends close...
mutiger91: yes, they are crazy
Brad Burgess: And your enemies closer...
MizzouCPA: JPR...another question I asked Jon last nite........why not mine Illiinois, especially Southern Illinois? .......practically in our backyard, lots of talent, too much to cede to the Illini
JPROCK1: Imani Butler is small but super fast...5`8,165 CB/WR top 3 track 100 meter guy...
Rage Dave: they are paying a guy is trashing their basketball coach
Brad Burgess: Dave...how do you get control of such a guy?
mutiger91: well, now Q can stop by and say "hi"
JPROCK1: big time return man....average over 35 yards per return
drecar: I grew up in St. Louis and the only person who gave a shit about mU was Broeg
Brad Burgess: Make him part of the product that he used to trash.
JPROCK1: Plays at Parkway North
mutiger91: He already is a part, Brad
Rage Dave: that's good brad...
Sader: Ok, color me out of touch...what's DJ doing for the University?
mutiger91: Pinkel was giving him credit for changes in the camps in St. Louis
drecar: Causing problems
JPROCK1: McNeely 6`4"225 DE/TE from Jackson...
Brad Burgess: 91, not a big enough part apparently!
Sader: Thought it sounded like he was actually on payroll....
mutiger91: Short of making him head coach, let's get him on board and keep him there
Rage Dave: btw, Mike Smith of the PD is on our side, but he's getting his balls cut off by the paper from what I've heard
JPROCK1: I like him as a DE but he has good speed and hands but he doesn`t put much effort into blocking on every play
LakeTiger: Is Pinkel opening up a San Antonio pipeline?
JPROCK1: otherwise he`d be a nice TE
mutiger91: welcome, Mr. Tomlin
drecar: This year is going to be fun because we are going to kick ass in fb and bb and Roy and Self will struggle
Brad Burgess: JAYDAVID, how are you doing?
JPROCK1: Who else did you mention?
Brad Burgess: Rocky, are you mute tonight? ;-)
mutiger91: welcome back, rock Java
Colotiger: JP: Do you see Jackson moving from QB to another position -- I know he's not a speed demon but he has good size and seems likely to get bigger. TE? LB? DE?
Sader: Evening Mr. Tomlin!
jaydavid: Doing Fine...Wishing I was In Columbia...watching workouts
Brad Burgess: Colo...I don't. Although he could, certainly.
JPROCK1: He could....but I go to sleep nights dreaming of a backfield of Jackson and Temple....
NAPERTIGER: JP keenaan have we offered him or McNeely?
drecar: Look at it this way at least your not having to feed Zane
Brad Burgess: How is Zain doing in columbia so far?
JPROCK1: No on McNeely...Keenan I don`t think so...Keenan would be a Tiger if Mizzou want him me thinks
Brad Burgess: JP...what are we waiting for? More people to find out about him?
Brad Burgess: ;-)
jaydavid: Zane says the workouts are tough...But He's getting faster and stronger he says
mplsTiger: Sounds like the staff is waiting on Keenan.
Colotiger: JayDavid: I was looking over Big 12 commitments today and A&M seems to be kicking *&^ and getting more highly rated players than UT so far.
JPROCK1: It`s becoming a numbers game
mutiger91: hard to do when UT does the rating :)
RedCampus: Mr. Tomlin...I believe your son is the top recruit in our 2003 Class!
mplsTiger: Good. I'd be disappointed if he said they were easy ;-)
Mizzouwinsitall2004: once conley becomes eligible is there goint to be enough minutes for everyone? aint it nice to have a team this deep? thank you quin!
Brad Burgess: JP, true. Boy, it's nice to have a numbers problem, isn't it?
Sader: UT is about out of 'ships and A&M has about 10 spots left, +/-.
Brad Burgess: UT does do the rating...ladies and gentlemen...Bobby Burton!
JPROCK1: No kidding....I remember it being January and FINALLY getting a commit
jaydavid: Don't know about you guys but my feelings on Mack rown are...He's Toast...after the stunt with Major Applewhite...Who would play for him?
mutiger91: don't talk that way JP
Brad Burgess: JP, Snake is kind of in that position right now.
JPROCK1: Ronell Kayhill ...remember him?
Brad Burgess: I do
mplsTiger: Red...I agree. Linemen rarelt get the hype, but we need 'em and he sounds like one of the best.
mutiger91: I hope Mack and Solich both hold their jobs for a few more years
Brad Burgess: I think Solich is in serious trouble.
NAPERTIGER: JP now I get your point about some good in state kids going elsewhere,we don't have room.
mutiger91: mpls, we need some stud DEs now
Brad Burgess: When has Nebraska EVER cleaned house with their assts?
drecar: Lord gets hurt and Solich won't make it through the year
JPROCK1: Exactly Naper.....it would be impossible this year
mutiger91: let's hand them their "assets" this fall
mplsTiger: Ronnell was working the desk at the Exec Ctr the last time I was there.
RedCampus: Brad, do you believe David Richard will show up as a Defensive End in 2004?
Brad Burgess: Ronnell played at MU when my brother Matt played. Matt said Ronnell was an awesome guy.
mutiger91: Red, that would rock!
Rage Dave: linebacker?
Brad Burgess: Red...or linebacker.
drecar: Pinkel is absolutely salivating over Sesay
Brad Burgess: Depends on how much he grows.
JPROCK1: Naper this year and next that is the problem the Tigers will have
Rage Dave: Where does Sesay play, and who of the tight ends move to what other positions
Rocky59: Hey! i finally got my computer fixed. I got a new one a couple months ago and apparently java was never downloaded. since I never caught up with the conversation, I'll leave now and catch the next one. Thanks Brad!
Brad Burgess: And nobody has mentioned David Richard's running mate, Mr. Massey.
PROCK1: I will probably post a top juniors list on here soon
JPROCK1: and sophs in Missouri
Sader: Any Mid MO kids on the list?
Rage Dave: Mr. Tomlin, do you think your son plays this year and is Missouri concerned about the defensive line?
JPROCK1: Yep..Jeff City has a couple...Hickman
Brad Burgess: Any Helias players, you mean??? ;-)
drecar: Sesay will play in run and play action and Howard maybe the H
Sader: : )
RedCampus: Brandon Massey will probably start at cornerback in 2004.
JPROCK1: Helias plays varsity?:)
mplsTiger: I can't wait to see what Richard looks like up-close.
Sader: C'mon now...
mutiger91: I'm still waiting on Tiger talk for someone to ask Pinkel why he is signing so many Missouri kids all of the sudden. I can hear him say "They told me to do it on Tigerboard"
Colotiger: What was the real story on Maroney? Did the players really "blackball" him, and if so, why?
JPROCK1: I kid ..I kid
Brad Burgess: JP, with the shot at Sader's boys...!
Sader: All in fun.
drecar: He took Thunder to heart
jaydavid: Zane says he thinks he will redshirt...I'm not sure...He's surprised me before...He may be ready in August
(Rage Dave left)
JPROCK1: Or hoops Sader
mutiger91: I hope that means we are strong inside, JD
(Rage Dave joined)
Colotiger: I had heard that some players didn't react that well to Maroney when he visited and that they told the coaches, and that might have been the straw that persuaded the coaches to pull their offer.
JPROCK1: lmao Brad
Sader: I see where this is going...
Brad Burgess: Where it always goes
Rage Dave: Gotta go, wife is home later guys
(Rage Dave left)
Brad Burgess: Speaking of the dark side, where is TigerJB?
Brad Burgess: Bye Dave.
mplsTiger: I could see him go either way. I think the depth at interior DL is OK. If Zane really impresses though, I think he'll play.
Sader: Not sure...he knew about it..said he was very busy.
motom: Signing off. Work in the a.m.
Brad Burgess: jaydavid, who has Zane been impressed by, player wise.
drecar: I want everyone to add to a message I am posting on the football board asking where I send Downtown my dollar contribution towards getting a home computer. Everybody lay it on him!
JPROCK1: Enjoy Minnesota
Colotiger: JP: Yep, that's what I heard.
Brad Burgess: JP...I doubt Maroney reads our premium board. And if he did, I'd tell him what I thought of him.
jaydavid: Zane just turned 18..this week...I'm sure he'll be a better 2 Technique at 19 than at 18...so I hope Pinkle redshirts him
JPROCK1: You heard right
mplsTiger: Hey, I may be able to just send him one! Gratis!
JPROCK1: True....but I don`t wanna piss off anyone who I deal with in NorCo
Sader: don't need that crap at all!
Colotiger: drecar -- but will he know how to turn it on?
mplsTiger: I do. Thank you.
Mizzouwinsitall2004: drecar, I'll pitch in for Downtown
Brad Burgess: Jaydavid...the real issue is that Zane will be a better DL at 22 than 18!
mplsTiger: Oh, you mean Laurence.
drecar: Just a pimp because he is so scottish
Brad Burgess: Poor downtown. Destitute downtown.
Sader: Govt just doesn't pay!
mutiger91: that's what you get for civil service
jaydavid: Yes Brad...That is the real reason for the redshirt
Brad Burgess: You bet.
JPROCK1: Alright fellas....the female is demanding some attention..it`s been fun
drecar: He is the penguin deep pockets short arms
mutiger91: lucky you, JP
Sader: Thanks JP!
JPROCK1: Have a great weekend
RedCampus: I missed the part about the Athletic Department adding facilities. What facilities? Expanded dining room, I hope.
JoCoTiger: JP Mucho Thanks
Sader: Yes..that's part of it. More workout space too.
NAPERTIGER: Thanks JP!
mutiger91: expanding dining room....something to do with a guy named Tomlin
Brad Burgess: You bet, thanks JP...always a pleasure.
JPROCK1: You can catch me around...peace out hommies
drecar: JP I'll email you tomorrow about Horton
Colotiger: Yeah, my teenage son is ragging on me to get off so he can chat with his friends. Great chat. Hope you do it again soon.
Brad Burgess: You bet Colo.
JPROCK1: Please do Drecar....I don`t like all the stuff i`m hearing
MizzouCPA: drecar.....dont forget to cc: me on that
JPROCK1: I wish parents would stay outta recruiting sometimes
Brad Burgess: Take care guys. It was a blast. I'll post this transcript as a premium story tomorrow. If you missed anything, you can check it out there.
drecar: CPA I think i lost your email
jaydavid: Nice to be able to talk with you guys...good bunch...My boy will be proud to play for you...See You soon
MizzouCPA: see you, Old Man Colotiger
mplsTiger: The deal is, new weight facility, dining room moves to old weightroom, and offices expand into old dining.
drecar: jaydavid it is a privilege to have your son play for us!
JoCoTiger: This has been great fun. See you all again.
Colotiger: CPA: I'm old, but you fart dirt.
Sader: You know, I think for the most part, the premium stuff here and onJK's board stay pretty quiet...not a lot of leaks.
mutiger91: You know if he starts next year, he can beat up on Texas
drecar: See you later people remember Horton is 25%
RedCampus: Where can I read about the facilities expansion? Where was this announced? Very exciting development!
MizzouCPA: I'll get you for this Colo...remember, I know where you live
Toger: drecar, don't go yet
Sader: That's good..Kleiza was too!
Brad Burgess: Sader, I would agree with you. It's pretty amazing.
