Missouri football tackles cleanup in tornado-stricken Joplin

Two weeks ago, the Missouri football team held a drive at a local Columbia, Mo., restaurant to help aid the victims of the devastating tornadoes in Joplin, Mo.

This past weekend, several players and coaches hopped into a bus and took the supplies to Joplin and got their first look at the destruction nearly 240 miles from their campus.

The group cleared debris, delivered goods and shook hands with the local fans. Even former quarterback Chase Daniel, who left the school two years ago and now plays for the New Orleans Saints, lent a helping hand.

It's rare to profile feel-good stories like this one, and after the past couple weeks, I think we could all use a positive football story.
