A lack of depth due to youth and injuries hurt the Tigers more than anything else following the departure of their top three receivers, top rusher and top passer from a year ago...

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- It's a sense of humor often accompanied by a sly smile that teammates seem to love about Missouri running back Russell Hansbrough. "He's just the guy who sits in the corner and says something once every blue moon, but it's funny as all get-out," receiver Bud Sasser said. His performance on the field has been no laughing matter.
