I'm generally not one to criticize officials (too much) and I really don't believe the Stripes intentionally go on a mission to sway the outcome of a game. BUT, that entire crew Saturday officiated the game from their knees as they blew too many calls. IMHO.
I totally agree with you BC. We muffed it too many time to win against an elite team the caliber of Georgia. However, I have to say (and it occurred a few times to GA too) that the officials spent the entire game on their knees -- blowin' the game.
Forgot to add: Athens is a helluva Game Day party town!! Good food, good fans and cold brew.
Regardless of the Dawgs vs MIZZOU W L record, I hope every fan coming to CoMo has a safe journey, a good time in Columbia and a safe trip back home. Please excuse our south end zone construction. I've been to Athens a few times and you GA fans have always been so gracious. Hoping we are as gracious. MIZ ZOU
Enough with the hoop talk!!! Kick off is 56 days away and I'm sure there is enough MIZZOU Football news to write about. Please!
After MIZZOU my 2nd favorite team is UGA. I get to Athens every other season. Beautiful campus, wonderful and very hospitable fans enjoying awesome tailgating and great game-day atmosphere downtown. Also some best friends & my daughter live & work in Atlanta. Good luck this upcoming season Dawgs, hoping for an awesome game in CoMo this year -- anything can happen, especially in the SEC. MIZ ZOU!
Dang BamaTimeTROLL! Good to read your B.S. Thought you would have violated your parole by now.

He should be going to 'other' Big House.
I suggest you worry about the Vol's dumpster-fire of a program. See you in Knoxville crying like little girls when we curb stomp your orange ass.
I hate to sound like Captain Obvious here but the new hires that Coach Odom is placing are looking like he's also very aware of recruiting opportunities in AR, FL and TX. Jest sayin'. (I know for you 'seasoned' advocates, my statement is a BIG Duh!!)
Good insights, sir. Thanks
Well stated V-Kelly
Blah, Blah, Blah, Conner.
Well said Virtual... Most on here are sounding like a bunch of whiny babies. To them I say, go find a 'Safe Space' on the Quad with your little, stuffed Trumans for some thumb-sucking and,'Oh how can this happen to MIZZOU' attitude. We are in the SEC and the SEC is no place for the faint of heart. There is NO crying in the SEC (Unless you're a Tenn. Vol.)!

Frost was pulling down a cool $2 Mil. Although I haven't seen Josh's comp, I would hope it is more than "few hundred thousand". Nice raise from $700,000 to whatever. Even to a cool million $s. Smellin' what you're cookin' riff raff.
For the love of all that's Holy would you people grow a pair and just fu*king stop whining about what might be and what might not be.

Thanks Wolfman. Great insights and couldn't agree more with your assessment of the SEC officiating.
Go ahead Coach Heupel point that finger but point while looking into a mirror. Sir, right now it points back to you! I will suggest our new DC & HC Coach Barry Odom should take a look; a long, reflective look in the mirror as well. Can either one of say you see a legitimate SEC coach in the reflection?
Tony, I didn't say or infer the D was brilliant the 2nd half; only they played better the 2nd half. Considering the 1st half D, marginal improvement was better than nothing. (I too am very discouraged by the D and very disappointed in their approach of 'lowering the floor' rather than 'raising the bar' "The MO State qb started missing wide open receivers for whatever reason." I'm optimistically surmising the reason was better pass rush and secondary coverage in the 2nd half. I can't agree more with you about the abysmal tackling and positioning. Only Saturday night will provide the real proof as to whether tackling yellow do-nuts vs churning legs & knees hitting against the chin is the tool MO-D needs for improved tackling.
The Tiger's defense regrouped and played much better the second half. Granted, they need to play all 4 quarters but the 'about face' change was reassuring. My prayers are directed to the kicking game.
Haha ! I hadn't seen this gal before. Leave it to the Vol's fans to keep it classy. Go Dawgs!!!
Wolfman, I enjoy your posts and quite honestly look forward to your insights into the game of college football and MIZZOU Football specifically. But not this time my friend. I believe in the coaching staff and its brave, broader, new view of today’s college FB culture. I can only speak with my limited knowledge of SEC (please excuse the mixed metaphor), ‘inside baseball’ football culture; I am only able ascertain from my interpretations of my observations and many discussions with friends at other SEC schools. And I’ve concluded if MU doesn’t periodically assert itself, run up numbers, benefit from opportunity and yes, take advantage of the other team’s deficiencies we can never be validated as a legitimate entity in the SEC. Most of the SEC fan base, media folks and various SEC schools have an arrogance that surely borders on fanaticism; I agree this is harsh and maybe a bit non-PC but lack of harshness and being PC has it is place on other parts of campus but not on a field where SEC Football is played. I don’t think the SEC hands out participation awards. It’s about time for a new, assertive and bold departure from MIZZOU football and Missouri athletics of old. In contrast to your view Wolfman I support the team and the coaching staff for their decision to dial it back enough to allow for a much needed, confidence boosting attitude of, ‘ hey SEC, we are good but daring to be great.’.
Hoping 'Lady Luck' smiles on you in Oxford as she did in the ZOU last week. You guys are my favorite fans outside my MIZZOU Tigers. Go Dawgs!
SEC Man ??? Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
