Missouri Shifts Gears To Vols

Missouri's football team is shifting focus to Saturday's road game at Tennessee. The Tigers came up short in a 14-7 loss to Florida last week. The defeat dropped Mizzou to 4-and-5 and 1-and-5 in the SEC.

Missouri tackle Justin Britt will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL. The offensive lineman suffered the injury during Saturday's loss at Florida. The loss of Britt will likely leave Mizzou with an offensive line of Elvis Fisher, Evan Boehm, Brad McNulty, Max Copeland and Mitch Morse.

When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."

The St. Louis Cardinals are exercising the 2015 option on pitcher John Lackey. The 36-year-old right-hander will earn the league minimum 500-thousand-dollars after making 15.25-million each of the last three seasons. Lackey was acquired from Boston at the trade deadline and his contract had a clause allowing for a league-minimum option after missing the entire 2012 season due to elbow surgery.
