COLUMBIA — Looking at the stat sheet, Missouri junior wide receiver Wes Kemp has had a poor preseason. But Kemp's teammates and coaches are not worried. In fact, they chuckle at the notion that Kemp is underachieving. That's because they know how vital Kemp is to the success of the Missouri offense, even when he's not catching the ball.
