On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
Missouri and Illinois both have home football games on Saturday. The 19th-ranked Tigers host Indiana at Faurot Field at 3 p.m. Mizzou is 3-and-0, while Indiana is 1-and-1. The Fighting Illini host Texas State at 3 p.m. Illinois is 2-and-1 thus far, while the Bobcats come in at 1-and-1.
