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.

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.
I love J.J.. I'm still totally in awe since we played in 2012. I was hoping he had a promising pro career. I'm pulling for him to have a personal best this season.
whats laughable about my comment. We score 24 or more / game and yes we compete for the division.
I wouldn't get to big for my britches. I've yet to see the Vols day in the sun. Just rainy parades since we've joined the league. And yes Tenn has been predicted to be better than Mizzou every pre-season since 12. You guys are batting a .250 against us to date.
Typical SDS spin on Mizzou. I'm still waiting on them to debunk the previous reports about fund-raising last year being down and reveal on this site the RECORD funds that were raised last fiscal year.
Gary Danielson!?! (very surprising from him) Finally someone sees Mizzou for what they are. We field a dominant defense this season and we will be in every game. We average 24 points or more and we possibly take the division.
TT, I totally respect your opinions. This is an open forum. That said, my point is that since '12, every pre-season publication ( ESPN, Athlon, Bleacher, SDS, etc) has listed UT/UF over MU. I suspect this is because of recruiting rankings and the lack of national press on MU. It baffles me the premium put on recruiting rankings here in the SEC versus actual coaching and the system. As I pointed out, we are 3-1 over UT and 2-2 w UF thus far. Sure a lot of us bought the hype of he storied Vols, Gators and Bulldogs when we first joined the SEC. But a lot of those perceptions changed once we started beating these teams. Only problem is that, out of the 3 only UGA has had the upper hand with us. Fans on forums from RockM, Mizzou forum in Post Dispatch, KTGR, even here on SDS began to note the unfounded narrative once the actual games were played out. I will not disagree about UT looking strong this year. And this year, the hype is truly warranted. But that doesn't guarantee them the division. Truth is, Mizzou has never been as pathetic as the some of the media and fans try to portray us and these other teams are not the juggernauts as reported. We field a solid, tough team. We produce. And probably overachieve more times than not, when comparing preseason recruiting rankings to the final team rankings. Thanks for your response.
I prefer Option 1. Based on the fact that nobody has ever thought we could compete in the SEC. Since 2012, we've already beat Ark, UGA, UF, and UT, but not LSU. Georgia (1-3) has had our number, but nobody around the state is worried about UF(2-2) or UT(3-1). Sure we may lose this year but, first impressions last a lifetime. From day 1 in the SEC, Tennessee has never been seen as juggernaut in the eyes of Mizzou fans since we won there in OT. We were a 5-7 team beat up by injuries and we still won. From that day on, UT has been all hype to us. We've always played competitive against UF whether home or in the Swamp. Beating LSU in Death Valley would a feather in the cap. The biggest feather. It would be SEC myth-buster about our ability to compete, we would gain true momentum for our DL as D- Line- Zou. When we outsiders and in the Big 12, it seemed LSU had the nastiest defensive lines in the SEC. They seemed untouchable with their annual draft picks, All- Americans, etc.. A dominate showing of our front seven plus a victory would cement Mizzou as being bona fide as a DL powerhouse. Also, i would personally have bragging rights over all my buddies and family in Baton Rouge for a while. I get there 3-4 times a year and they try to laugh me out of the room when i talk Mizzou football. It would force the media to turn the page from 2015 and recognize the leadership/direction of Coach Odom. Beating Arky and sweeping the west would simple be sweet.
