I've been going to Mizzou games since 1958

But jeez, "I'm a MAN!" is a mullet-headed classic from a well paid public employee
General Ewing issued the Martial Law Order No. 11 of August 25, 1863. His order led to the burning of Missouri homes along the border. The order also led to summary executions of civilians and exile of their families (as in "Gone to Texas"). The conflagration was depicted in a painting by George Caleb Bingham, the first Professor of Art at MU. The Bingham painting hangs in the Missouri State Capitol. I am divided about more MU vs. KU football. I've seen plenty of these football games and don't care if they play another. Maybe if KU joined the SEC. Then it would be an annual game played at Arrowhead and would count as a conference game
What are some possible sanctions? Three years of probation A $5,000 fine, plus 1 percent of their budget A 5 percent scholarship cut Several recruiting penalties Vacate the KU victory None of the above
"Winning is hard" -Gary Pinkel. Yes, it's that simple
Sounds like a good hire, The pressure to perform well out of the gate is mounting now that Leach has signed on at MSU. Mike the Pirate was at the top of my list when Drink became HC
The Johnny Roland Tigers beat the Steve Spurrier Gators 20-18 in the 1966 Sugar Bowl at Tulane Stadium, New Orleans
With every victory the stakes get larger. This one is on time and on target. "A group of several tigers is called a streak or an ambush...Tigers are usually described as solitary animals, but not asocial." -Wikipedia
What an inspiring story. It is the kind of story that players and coaches can grab on to and catch fire. This can be a statement team, the kind that Cale Garrett has built on hard work, discipline and character. This is a team that knows how hard it was to beat a 2-3 Ole Miss and what it takes to beat hungry Vanderbilt this week. This could be a very special team
"The Tigers knocked off Ole Miss 38-27." Chew on that Corso...
Pantone 10123 C known as MU GOLD, but here it gets tricky because the metallic gold version is slightly darker than MU GOLD. Regardless, all I want to see is Mizzou fight hard and win while looking good doing it
Excellent. Well done. Beat Ole Miss. A video for the happy hearted...
General Order 11 of 1863: A Union Army directive issued during the Civil War on August 25, 1863 forcing the evacuation of four counties in western Missouri. The order by Union General Ewing affected all rural residents regardless of allegiance
It is indeed a very short stick to measure a rivalry. The MU vs KU "rivalry has historic roots in the often violent relationship between the states of Kansas and Missouri, including guerrilla warfare between the states before and during the American Civil War." -(Wikipedia). So it was a good time to end that nonsense. The MU (4 wins) vs SC (5 wins) games have been good. We like the civility of this clean slate. Perhaps we are getting ahead of ourselves a bit, but I have nearly 60 years of watching college ball and this one feels up to the measure
Just like the old Missouri-Kansas Border War rivalry, we look forward to South Carolina with the same intensity of those storied MU-KU games.
I like it. COMO should have many tiger statues
Welcome young man. You are following in footsteps of some of the greats. William Moore, Roger Wehrli, Jason Simpson, Erik McMillan and many more. You have a great opportunity ahead so prepare well
Bowls are a nice rewards to successful schools. The communities and sponsors treat the players nice. But the real mark of success is a victory on Saturdays. As Coach Pinkel is fond of saying, winning is hard, victory is not easy. Losing the incentive of a bowl game makes every game seem more important, every victory a point of pride. Once again we start the season hoping for victory, and this season, regardless of a bowl invitation and outside decisions, should be played for respect. Just play them one game at a time and let the chips fall where they may.
The 1978 Missouri Tigers put up some big numbers with: Phil Bradley, James Wilder, Earl Gant, Gerry Ellis, David Newman, Howard Richards, Leo Lewis, Lamont Downer, and Kellen Winslow (just to name a few). Could this team be of this caliber...? Only time will tell
Would someone please take the highlighter pens away from Nike
Gone are the days of Black and (old) Gold. Okay, whatever works, right? Yellow uniforms with black pants are tolerable once a year, but please, please, PLEASE NO WHITE PANTS AT HOME!!! This is why we lost to Kentucky. That was a personal foul for bad taste)
Mizzou used to be MU black and old gold. This was a good combination and hope to see it return
I'm still looking for the character and determination they showed us last November against Arkansas
Maybe Lock should sit out for a series after he throws an interception. Looking carefully at their defense from the sideline might help break this frustrating habit
