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.

Fairly new to SEC history and all, but Derrick Thomas, Reggie White aren't top 5? Rocker yes, Dorsey yes, Polluck yes indeed. Clowney? not so sure about that.
3B. What does Eddie Printz look like in comparison? How about Marvin Zanders?
Mauk is a band-aid quarterback not a tourniquet. He can quarterback, just not efficiently as starter. He is better coming off the bench in relief. In the pocket he has been a 2-3 second guy. This translates into one read and maybe a second read--- throw/bail. He has to be a 3-4 second QB to be efficient in this offense. Mauk has never buckled from a challenge, so I'm curious to see how he responds in his play this season. Good article.
Charles Harris is my choice for Mizzou. I wanna get a better idea of our DE play. Will we sustain/ get worse/ go further at the position.
Mizzou's Strength & Conditioning Coach Dr. Pat Ivey is the hidden gem of the staff and needs to be acknowled as well.
First off I didn't mention Mizzou's ranking. I'm simply not gonna lust and fuss after a 'way too early power ranking'. My point was slanted toward the writers for creating click bait for a premature, make-believe ranking. Besides Armygay, I have nothing to complain about...even in this fantasy ranking, Mizzou is rightfully ahead of Ole Miss, as we always should be.
Cue in Dr. Pat Ivey....... your turn sir.
Zzzzzzzz. Same ole predictable poll. Hit the snooze button. Wake me in August, when all the suspensions have been tallied up for every team. Then we can have a power ranking.
I was hurt that he went to the Buckeyes. I had no idea that Mizzou hadn't extended an offer to him until the Buckeyes did. That's horrible and the staff needs to step it up in STL. We're only gettin 1/4 of the Blue chips from the Lou. That needs to change. It's gonna be super tough to get a SEC title without these type of players pushing us over the top.
Thats why i said if the season started today. They would have headstart. Im not claiming they take the East, just pointing out a few unmentioned facts in the thread. UT doesn't have to spend time learning new terminology or mannerisms like the rest of the east will have to. Continuity alone won't be enough to win the division, but it sure helps.
I think every team in the East will have either new coach- UF/coordinator- MU UGA UK VU /QB- SC, except Tennessee. So how will each squad respond to new/different leadership will be the question. As beloved as our new DC Odom is in fanfare, we have no idea how the transition will work. Should it work? Sure. Can it work? We'll see. Leadership and Adaptibility will be the X and Y factors in 2015. So far UT, has the upper hand in stability coming into the season. Also, i believe they return 18 starters. So it's much easier to assume their trajectory as compared to the rest of the division. If the season started today, the Vols would have the headstart.
MOST ACCURATE SDS STATEMENT REGARDING MIZZOU FOOTBALL- TO DATE... "This program could very well win a national championship if it just had an extra handful or two of four- and five-star recruits." Christopher Smith
Puzzling hire. If he is successful in Athens, I will finally give him credit. He's been over his head in the NFL. Mediocre at best. The entire city of St. Louis, gave a sigh of relief upon hearing of his departure. Missourians are tired of the Shottenheimer family, they didn't do much for Chiefs or Rams as coaches, again mediocre. To his credit Brian just upgraded to an awesome talent pool of players, but he's got to "show me", he can be successful. Georgia, the best with him.
Larger Picture.... The West carried the SEC banner and the national fanfare during the regular season and the East held it during the bowl season. We're still SEC! Consider the raw cannibalism that took place during the season that put 12 teams into bowl games. We still have a top shelf brand of college football, nobody can take that away from us! It was another fun season my friends, the best of luck to everyone next season!
million dollar question.... What to do with Marvin Zanders? Leave him at QB or convert to WR?
And a loud and proud Z-O-U to the SDS staff. Thanks for comin around.
In the big picture, Mizzou is simply trying to expand it's brand. Something we could never do consistently in the Bevo12. Thanks to the hard work of the team for Murphy, Ray and Pinkel's SEC awards. These are the baby steps towards that goal. In the end, Mizzou is striving to be a household name, we're not there yet but getting closer everyday. Pinkel has laid out his case to the nation in terms of his coaching ability..... give me an inch and i will take a mile (w 3 star recruits), but give me a mile and I will take the world (visa 4/5 star recruits). The Georgia and Bama losses proved that we must get better recruits to truly contend beyond the division titles. Pinkel's success should be plenty of ammo, to sell the program in the SEC. Congratulations to the Missouri Tigers!
Glaring needs... Athletic OL, WRs, Kicker. Pinkel needs to find a go-to TE as well similar to Martin Rucker.
