Walking tall

Chuck Martin remembers joining William H. Taft for a 100-mile race-walk in Columbia in 1977. Taft, a journalism professor then edging toward retirement, spent his afternoons walking five miles every day in Brewer Fieldhouse, but Martin figured he would be able to keep up because he was roughly 30 years younger than Taft.

“As I recall, I made 30 miles in eight hours before retiring from race-walking permanently,” said Martin, now an editorial writer at the Wisconsin State Journal.

Woods jukes jitters

Marcus Woods said he has gotten rid of the redshirt-freshman jitters that caused him to struggle early this season.

The tailback had an inauspicious start on his first college carry in the Tigers’ season opener Sept. 4 against Arkansas State. With Missouri leading 21-10 in the second quarter, Woods fumbled the ball on a rush up the middle, giving the Indians possession in Tiger territory and a chance to stop Missouri from putting the game out of reach.
