Through two games Markus Golden and Shane Ray are at the top of the defensive stats. Their disruptive play is drawing national attention early from across the country. However, Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel told us on Monday’s Media Day that NFL scouts had their eyes on those two as juniors when they made their visits to Mizzou last offseason as they were in Columbia to check out Kony Ealy and Michael Sam.
Pinkel comments on Golden and Ray.
Golden is second on the team in tackles with 16 and tops with five tackles for loss, including 2.5 sacks. Ray has three sacks to lead the team to go along with six unassisted tackles, tied for second on the team behind Golden’s leading eight.
T.J. Fenske from KRCG-TV/Jefferson City joins me on this Google Hangout to talk about Golden and Ray, plus a strange comparison to Mauk and a former NFL star.
