Mizzou All Day

Raised in Macon, MO about an hour north of CoMo. All we had was Mizzou to respresent us, so I'm a lifelong fan. The STL & KC folks have their collegiate and Pro teams, but for me the Tigers are the only true statewide flagship institution. Never attended MU, but played NG at Division III National Champion, Quincy University back in 1992-3. I finished my collegiate days at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Ga. Since then I've lived all around Mid-Missouri including Jeff City, Fulton and CoMo; New Orleans, LA and currently St. Louis. I'm happy that we moved to the SEC, now my buddies down south have to consider us when start talkin football.

I'm a history guy! Thanks for this
Shipp has Kul's personnel not his own. These players where recruited to attack downhill, stopping the run en route to the QB. Our run defense has been as good as it could get under that scheme sans the SECCG vs Auburn. I dont agree w putting a bit & bridal on wild mustangs.... let those guys run wild. In defense of the Defensive coaches we face Chubb, Fournette, Webb and Hurd all top backs of the SEC this year. Let's just hope we have been playing vanilla strickly to bolster our run defense, terminology and the new scheme.
Another case of when the press and public fall in love and overly obsess with a recruiting ranking... smh.
It's gonna be Eason. He's not tipping his hand publicly.
When will the homepage reflect 2016 stats?
"In terms" of domination we are accustomed to.
Random thoughts about the game/team: Red flag for Jackie Shipp's DL philosophy. Michael Shererer is No Kentrell Brothers at MLB . Lock, Penton and Beckner Jr played the best on the entire team. Dont know why Lock was so intent on looking to Moore in the red zone after the on-side recovery. Moore has a lot of growing pains ahead.... He's gonna have a hard time living up to his own hype. The running game is impotent. Tackle tackle tackle. I liked the OL in pass protection, cant say the same about the run. Barry is gonna have to grow up along with his team- he seemed regretful with decisions at times. The The TEs need to be more involved. The play action was effective. We had ro success in the slots and need to build on that. Charles Harris seemed stifled too much. Overall the offense has a chance to gel and build. The defense is at cross-roads interns
Congrats to Jordan Harold! Not sure how I feel about a walk-on starting week1. The kid is either a monster to overstep the other scholarship DEs or the evaluation process of Shipp/Odom may be flawed. I've trusted Odom's moves to date, but I must say this caught me by surprise. I'll be cheering loud and clear for the young man!
That's easy..... South Carolina- "I Need Love"- LL Cool J Let's face it, Carolina has lost a lot of ground in recruiting the last couple years. Muschamp has a lot of ground to cover and I'm sure he shares the sentiment of the song while out recruiting. Tennessee- "Don't Believe the Hype" - Public Enemy Call me a homer who lives up the State slogan -'Show-Me-State", but I have to see it to believe it. Can Coach Jones get his players over the psychological hump to finish games is the ultimate question. He has the roster and the tools. Kentucky- "Playing Basketball " - Kurtis Blow I really admire Coach Stoops and his approach to the game, but UK stick to your best hand.... cue the song. Missouri- "Eric B for President" Eric B & Rakim Since we don't a have one (university president), Eric B might as well apply. That song stayed at the top of the rap charts for months back in the late 80s. We need some staying power around here as well. Vanderbilt- "Love Me for Me" - Heavy D & the Boys Can we simply respect Vandy for being Vandy? Academics trumps athletics on their campus. They do however have the best looking uniforms in the conference in my opinion. Georgia- "My Mind is Playing Tricks on Me"- Ghetto Boys Sadly, incredible finishes in the recruiting rankings doesn't always translate to championships. Perennial underachievers. Florida- "Freaky Tales" - Too Short Just like the song, there are countless tales of great feats in Gator football history. A well documented, championship program with the hardware to match.
Good get! That should push the rankings up as well. Welcome to the Zou!
One of the best articles written about Mizzou by SDS ever! Looking at that list, its hard to argue the moniker "D-Line-Zou". That's an impressive list. Its gonna be tough for Harris to do, however, he may be on the best defense ahead of his predecessors. The Big 12 was an offense shoot-out (which the current SEC is trending towards as well), with less emphasis on defense. And they threw a lot more in that league, making sacks easier to obtain. And I agree, a Markus Golden type of year would be astounding. All in all, i really enjoyed this read, and i read SDS daily. Excellent read Adam.
Thank you Zoucat, I totally agree.
I wonder if this news has any correlation with Freeze staging his own funeral and eulogy for team motivation! Cause it looks like his goose is cooked and this might be his last year or so in Oxford.
Fair assessment. Brady was a Freshman All - American and led all SEC freshmen with 7 sacks in 2015 and 12.5 TFL. His up-side and potential would have been something to watch develop in the black & gold. Time to see what Nate Howard is all about.
I can't argue that. I assume he had trouble finding his way after all those surgeries.
If we were playing chess, then Saban just castled. Im not mad at him, rules are rules. The kid hasn't graduated yet.
As bad as this is..... this is the only position group that could absorb such bad news. If this was anybody on Offense, I would declare the season over. Brantley hurts the most, the guy gave the University his heart. He's the epitome of Pinkel's method of finding a diamond in the rough. Pinkel thought he was the same caliber of athlete as Sheldon Richardson was. Harold Brantley was never scared and he battled every snap. The very best to him and Brady. Sad to see Brady crash and burn like this. Somebody just found an awesome DE.
finally we agree on something.
Mizzou with two in the top-10....D-Line-Zou. Charles Harris was a 2 star coming out of HS playing basketball btw. I like Barnett, Garrett, Allen as well as Harris. All of these guys can be #1. Lawson, is hype thus far, I've yet to see his impact on the game.
