(Not sure why that posted as a REPLY to you... doh!)
I don’t care about the ranking right now. I just want to beat Ole Miss without Cale Garrett! That MIZZOU pessimism sneaks in whenever I see an article like this and think “well, we’re jinxed now” even tho that’s ridiculous thinking. And as a reminder, almost HALF of those Wyoming rushing yards were given up on 2 plays. ... what a horribly strange game that was.
HA!! I experienced this exact thing at work two weeks ago. I jokingly said "Lighten up, Frances" to a co worker and basically everyone in the room just stared at me. (all younger than 35.) Even when I said, "Stripes?" I got blank stares.... SMH . ha
4 and 5 star performers? That seems to fly in the face of every yearly talking point that Mizzou doesn't recruit well -- usually a mid 40s class, stocked with 3 star talent....
that 'fluky' Wyoming loss still haunts me. Basically 4 bad plays (2 fumble returns and 2 defensive breakdowns) did all the damage. Should never have happened, but those that didn't watch, just see a score and think Miz was manhandled or something.... wasn't the case at all. MU shouldve won that stupid contest. But, yeah, they DID lose to Wyoming, so... meh. Maybe they'll eventually creep up the rankings. More importantly, let's get that ridiculous bowl ban overturned!
Okie dokie, old timer... So no one will ever match up to Devine. Got it. That was more than half a century ago. - I got to experience Devine, but also was at MIZZOU for Powers then Woody’s Wagon. If you can’t appreciate Pinkel, then you are purposefully being blind to what he did for the school. Sad for you, but whatever...
Just one question about that list though... Did kansas really come in at #13?!!?!! Wow.. Just..... wow.....
Aw, come on. We're undefeated right now. Don't start bursting our bubble yet....
Lighten up, Francis. It was a joke too....
Well, it may not look like a tiger, but at least we can still claim being the “original” tigers when it comes to SEC schools! MIZZOU -- 1890 AUBURN -- 1892 LSU -- 1893 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Did KENT STATE join the SEC? They play ARKY, ALA, and UK in three of their first four games. (Glutton for punishment?)
self reported?!?! Looks like a bowl ban is in order!
He comes off as a grumpy old uncle....
nice that A&M got 2 of those 5 cross-divisional wins. The East actually beat the West in 2018, going 9-5.... okay, 9-6 including the championship game....
Ya gotta understand that all Mizzou fans know of Franks is that he played a little garbage time against the reserves in the 2017 game, then was so bad last year, he was pulled and replaced by Trask after going 9 for 22 and 84 yds. That's why we'd think he shouldnt be high on any list.... granted, small sample size...
Not sure how you missed it, but MIZZOU at VANDY on Oct 19th?! Come on! That has GAMEDAY written ALLLLL over it!
Jeez. I should’ve gone back and spell checked that post beforehand on my phone. Too many errors. Sorry! Doh!
Listen, I know most of the other fan bases will scoff and say it’s jist a participation trophy, but I’m quite pleased MIZZOU currently sits at 31sr in the rankings (and they also scored 3 nice transfers that don’t count toward the ranking!) Yes, absolutely, that’s still 13th in the SEC, but it’s one of the highest rankings they’ve scored in recent years and they still have too. To get more recruits in feb. within the SEC it isn’t impressive, but for everywhere else, it’s a pretty good showing... so I’m glad we got 31st right now, which is still higher than 7 BIG12 schools and 7 big ten ones. It’ll always be a struggle to compete with our conference mates, but MIZ is trying!
WATCH: Former Mizzou coach Gary Pinkel, WR L’Damian Washington surprise honor roll students with shopping trip
L'Damian is on the roster for that new BIRMINGHAM IRON AAF football team. At least he'll have another chance to play! Good guy!
FYI - the Purdue game at beginning of season skewed the numbers horribly for MIZZOU, so they’ve been fighting that rep the rest of the season. However, they are actually ranked 53rd in tota defense now after 12 games. That is hardly a horrible defense. Come on, Tomlin. I know the easy out for every writer and opposing fan base is to say they’re “terrible” but they aren’t nearly as Bad as the pushed storyline from you folks. Let’s give that a rest now, shall we?!!
Nice of you to say MIZ is a “good team,” Long Beach. However that totally goes against the fan base of every team with beat. “Mizzou just a garbage team!” That’s the general consensus among them as they lost. (Maybe we aren’t nearly as bad as they claim?) ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
And MIZZOU would kill to have a do-over in the SC and UK games. (& Atleast those we’re close..) Hell, we should be 9-2 right now. Every team wants a chance to correct their mistakes.
Exactly what I was logging in to comment on! No, they weren’t great today (but they are HARDLY a “garbage team” as some shmuck above commented) but when your arm gets hit as you throw there’s nothing “inexplicable” to a possible interception.
FFS give it a rest....
Michael betting WITH Mizzou? I'm so confused right now....
UCF homer eviscerated after he calls out ESPN for not including ‘defending champs’ among Playoff contenders
technically, you're wrong. MIZZOU played a home and home in '12 and '14 against UCF. Won both. (21-16 in Orlando against Bortles & 38-10 at Columbia).
Worst officiating? Hell no. Especially in terms of what Mizzou has dealt with over the years. NOTHING will ever surpass the infamous Fifth Down against Colorado (which somehow allowed them later that season to claim a Natty) Plus we've got the Flea Kicker, along with a whole slew of fun calls that has sapped the fan base into a constant "how else can this go wrong?" underlying attitude. That blocking ref was nothing in the scheme of Missouri lowlights.
Cool! And if I'm not mistaken, I think they're playing off season 2 of Stranger Things as well. They're using the backlit tunnel look of the lab, and I heard the demogorgon sound effect in there too! Nice!

As for the TIGERS mascot, not trying to be a mizzou homer, but, Missouri did have the name first... MIZZOU -- 1890 AUBURN -- 1892 LSU -- 1893
