COLUMBIA, Mo. - It's no secret Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson attracts attention and has an obvious air of confidence about himself.

At 6-4, 295 pounds, he's got the attention of opposing teams' offenses.

His outgoing nature and sometimes lack of a filter can be an attention grabber for everybody else.

But nearly a month after he became a media sensation for his comments about Georgia playing "old-man football," it's Richardson's motor on the field that has people paying attention to him.
