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.
Somebody turn this rerun off! Its 2016, its best to leave Maty Mauk in 2015. This kid needs professional help.
Comment on Sponsor of Missouri anti-player strike bill when asked if he spoke to black students on campus, “No”
Historically, Sounds like par for the course. Good job stigmatizing the minority students on campus, by talking at them and not to them. And some folks wanna act like the atheletes were insane for standing up obvious racial tensions. Its a sad sad day and time in Missouri's and we are obviously behind schedule in human relations.
Just a few weeks ago my brother, who lives in Olathe, told me he still has to hide his Mizzou clothing when he goes to restaurants. He told me they'll do something nasty or crazy to his food. They're still bitter. He told me that with a straight face.
Comment on What’s the effect of the Mizzou walkout?
Ha ha ha, the comments are funny. And quite telling... Let me get this straight---So some students, faculty, coaches and athletes stand up as human beings to fight for respect and some of you clowns wanna jump ship and despise MU football? Petty and shameful! Obviously human rights is beyond your comprehension in 2015!!! Regards to Pinkel? How come you cry babies weren't denouncing Mizzou after the way GP did the right thing by protecting Michael Sam's sexual orientation from the public? Whether you agreed with how he handled it or not, many of you stayed with the team and rooted for our beloved Tigers. As evidenced on this site. We all know Pinkel's logic when it comes to family, so why is this matter so far-fetched to grasp. I expected him to support his players in this situation. What an act of true leadership and solIdarity. As far as I'm concerned Pinkel has given the campus a blueprint on how to achieve teamwork thru diversity. Where sound principles, compassion, understanding are met with determination and diligence . Yes, in many regards the football team is more progressive than the University. Mizzou faithful are not hypocrites or fair-weather. I can understand disagreeing with Pinkel, but to denounce the Tigers is utterly ridiculous and pathetic. Be gone with your flimsy backbone and your archaic thinking.
Im sure many of you have never heard of Lloyd Gaines. He was the first black man admitted to the University of Missouri and he never finished. He was kidnapped and never seen again. Its still an open case. And many of those same racial undertones have accumulated to today's situation thru neglect. To say that opposing racism isnt worth standing up for is ridiculous and spine-less. Im proud of these students-athelets for using this stage to address this problem on this campus. Can you come up with a better strategy to get results so swift? Like it or not, sports is the bridge for white America to engage with the black communities. If not for sports how much would you care, know or understand anything about black history, culture, lifestyle, intellect. Now consider how little you really know as a sports fan. Next look into your own community, ask yourself what do you actually know about the black folks living across town that are not involved with sports. We are all guilty of neglect for not correcting today's disparities from yesterday's racism. Simple neglect perpetuates the privileges of the past. Standing ovation to the entire University of Missouri!
Yes defense does win championships, but offense wins games.
Offense is a waste project at this point courtesy the OL. Its about special teams right now to me. If we wanna get bowl eligible, we have to come up with touchdowns. The defense gift wrapped the offense the ball on the 1 yard line and they couldn't punch it in. The offense is done.
Out offense makes any defense look good. I feel for our defensive players and hope they can keep their morale up. What a strange combination of leading the league in few defensive categories, while dwelling in the bottom of most offensive categories. Thats half good and half bad which translates to a 6-6 mediocre team at best. Hard fought game, the best to the Bulldogs.
Pinkel and Henson need to get creative real quick or we may lose out. It pains me to say it, but its true. What a complete waste of outstanding defense. It's all hands on deck to score points. We cant play straight up against teams and expect to move the ball. Zanders needs to be on the field along with Lock in some packages. We gotta get gimmicky with trick plays, onside kicks, etc. and put the best athletes on special teams. Guys from the first team offense and defense. Obviously the offense is a work in progress (a damn shame) so the coaches need to ratchet up the special teams and attempt score with that unit. They owe that to the Defensive players and staff.
An old broom for a worn out pair of shoes? That doesn't make sense. Good luck Gamecocks on your search.
Another reason he was 2014 SEC Coach of the year.... as a bachelor.
That man is 2-1 Mizzou over Florida since joining the SEC. And we lost 14-7 in 2012 to you guys our first year we finished 5-7. Name brand or not, the Tigers won't be a walk in the park.
Listening to Gator fans this week and we might well go ahead and forfeit. They are expecting to easily cruise past Mizzou. Im sorry to say Gator fans but Florida has plenty to prove to us. Nobody in the Tiger country is shaking in their boots just cause the Florida Gators are coming to town. Like the sayin goes....To be the man, you gotta beat the man.
Brick by brick has a new meaning now.
Where's Armyguy007 when you need him?
Comment on Todd Gurley carries Rams to victory
Coming from a guy who lives in St. Louis- I'm so happy we "traded" Shotty for Gurley. This weekend the Rams played like Georgia courtesy of TG. And the Bulldogs played liked the Rams courtesy of Shotty. Much love to Ogletree and I hope he recovers quickly.
THE HOUSE OF MATY MAUK WAS BUILT ON SAND..... Mauk was Pinkel's pet project anyways. The coach was living of house money and it was a matter of time that Maty would be exposed and the account would overdraft. I have nothing against Maty, he is what he is: a highschool QB playing backyard football on college fields. First off Mauk at best is a back up QB like he was for Franklin. He can close out a game, but not start it properly. He's got moxy no doubt, but his mechanics, footwork and ability to make quick decisions has stifled him at this level. The Maty Mauk project falls squarely on Pinkel. Its well documented from GP that for Mauk to sign with Mizzou that he had to promise Maty's dad that he wouldn't alter or change Maty's deliver or mechanics. Thats's all fine and dandy as a suprise element but not as a fulltime starter. GP has stated time and time again that he leaves Maty alone when it comes to developing his skill set. Well SEC pressure busts pipes and hour glass is nigh. Coach Pinkel has totally exhausted this approach and its time to move on. 100% speculation: Pinkel knows how to get out of an agreement. Im certain he has been quite aware of Maty's extra curricular activities but chose to keep it tight-lipped and filed under break in case of emergency. Give Maty a urine test and he's done.
Missouri's Defensive coordinator is Barry Odom.
Comment on SEC’s hot or not: Week 4
Sad to say.....but By the way this season is goin both Mizzou and Auburn need to fold up our tents and root for the Tigers in Baton Rouge. We both had decent runs the past couple years, while LSU was down. Now it looks like it might be their year to shine.
