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 sure his scholarship just opened up for this recruiting season. We're already deep at WR
You could argue the O Line and RBs were the most improved units on the squad. The upside is all the youth in those units. Also , The depth was quite surprising in those units. The biggest issues of concern next year will be the D Line. Simplicity is important for those guys to create havoc. The new hire will be vital.
I agree with this. The SEC is lacking in coaching. Overall the league does exceptionally well in recruiting blue chip athletes, but it doesn't translate to the field. Player development may be at its worst across the board. Meanwhile the press puts a premium on recruiting rankings, and thinks thats all it takes to be successful. Just look at the final standings and rankings---- it doesn't translate to actual success. In the east I would argue the best coach right now is Mark Stoops. Nobody got the milage out of their team like he did. And that says a lot.
I love trash talk but this is baseless. The LBs were the worst unit to suit up last week. How this kid has the audacity to talk tough is beyond me. K Brothers is the example Beisel needs to follow. Shut your mouth and do your job. Odom has wasted all the equity and stock that Pinkel created in ONE season....
We're playing classic Big 12 football in the SEC... Explosive offense and porous defense. Odom didn't hire one coach from the SEC beyond the few he retained from Pinkels staff and it shows. Those numbers mean nothing, cause there will forever be a footnote attached to those numbers mentioning our loss.
I mean c'mon, the Big 12 never had comment sections like these! Who wouldn't trade the Big Boring for all this character and drama here in the SEC. This league has programs who are either relevant, delusional, has-beens or wanna-bes. I don't have to call any names, It sucks having a historic down time within our program and embarrassing to say the least, but at least I get to enjoy the rest of my division fall off one by one this year. Heck on that note, I'll stir up the pot and say the East is down because Mizzou is down. (BTW Tenn, UGA and FL has been using this excuse for years now).
Living in St. Louis, it appears folks enjoy the SEC more than the previous conference. Since realignment the brand is everywhere here in the metropolitan area. You see Mizzou everything, everyday. Can't say that was the case 5 years ago and beyond. Joining the SEC has raised the stakes without doubt, however I think it has been for the best. I've never been more involved as a fan and I love our new overly zealous fan bases here in the SEC. The big 12 is just cooked food without the seasoning and spices.... you stomach it, but it's not enjoyable.
Somebody that runs the spread offense. Imagine LSU using their speed and agility running that system. Heck Saban broke down and swallowed his pride and switched. I bucks traditional pro sets , but looking at the Tides ability to install that system in a year is impressive. They won't be switching anytime soon or at least til Hurts leaves.
The words of Ricky Bobby are true, "If you're not first, you're last". It's Bama and the rest of us this year. Can't help but giggle as my team is firmly in last. smh
Really telling on what you think about race relations.... Let. it. go.com
I enjoyed the game it seemed the only place Bama had an advantage was in the QB position. Everything else was even. Hurts over Etling proved to be the difference. If LSU had a premier QB---this game may have had a different outcome.
But if we did that, BBN will fall back to the bottom. You should enjoy us being a doormat for as long as possible.
Congrats Wildcats! We won't win another game this season, unless we suit up at the state high school championship. This is pathetic, pathetic pathetic for all in Mizzou nation
What he meant to say was: Damn Im a fool for letting Coach Kul go. What was i thinking? Walter Brady too. My hot shot defensive scheme has divided and conquered my players. We're thinking football and not playing football. So tackling is just too confusing. If we lose out, I'll kindly resign my post and Mizzou can hire a real head coach with experience, instead of glorified chaperone that I am.
The D-Line has went from Beast to Least. It's a shame they can't get aligned. Last year he was the newby learning the existing defense, this year he makes his entire unit learn a foreign defense. Flawed thinking and tough pill to swallow.
Comment on Rapid Reaction: Mizzou continues to struggle defensively in awful homecoming loss to Middle Tennessee
DUMPSTER FIRE ! clap clap--- clap clap clap.
Nostalgic fans and press of yore have self inflated the UT narrative and Kirby Smarts prowess. To be honest, beyond Tennessee's 17 or so returning starters, most of us eastern divisional foes never saw them as world beaters. They were gonna need some lucky bounces to contend for the conference, but they ran out of luck allowance with UGA. They squeaked through most of last year but weren't predominantly powerful like a BAma. UGA, UF and even us Mizzou fans would agree on that.
Like the last three years.... I fully expect the winner of this game to head to ATL. Good game Gators and Good luck!
Nothing against Lock he is who he is..... a basketball player player w 4 /5 years experience playing football. Once he gets hit, he reverts back into his Freshman self. I thought he overcame those ghosts but it's obvious not just yet. That being said, the coaching stAff has to take lead on behalf of all the rest of the players and find ways to win. I put more blame on the coaching than Lock.
True indeed, but after on full half of under 50 yards passing from Lock. And 2 pick 6s! I sure the hell would have flushed the game plan down the toilet at half time . We had success running with just the RB early in the 3rd, why not add another dimension with the QB at that point. With Lock we are easy to defend now.... Cover 2 and tight press coverage+ leverage from the front seven= Doom for Mizzou's Offense. At this point in the season Lock's arm is iron pyrite aka fools gold. And to devise an entire offense around that is ludicrous.
