Trip *over* our own shoestrings. God I wish they’d let us edit comments.
Hey BamaTime, I think I struck a nerve haha. Elite we are not, but we’ve been on the cusp of greatness multiple times and trip get or own shoestrings. Wouldn’t pay Devine’s assistants enough so he leaves and wins it all at ND, our boosters insist on a Mizzou made man and we all hop on the Woody Wagon (all the way to a 77-0 thrashing by Oklahoma), and somehow got lucky with Pinkel. Here’s hoping our boosters and AD have learned from the past. We do have potential.
Please ignore his comment, I've been chuckling woflman's "expert claims" for years. Yeah, we've had some awesome runs by any standards, but we haven't maintained that consistency going forward. This is a good start, but I'm fully expecting another 3-4 years before we are consistently competing at a high level.
Agreed. Newton lost points for his post Super Bowl fit too.
Although for all time, I think my favorite helmet was the pre-SEC matte black with gloss black M we wore against KU in 2010. Those were sharp.
My favorite helmet is the alternate with the large tiger in gold on a black helmet. Why we continue to use the small circle logo is beyond me.
Brian Kelly takes issue with Kirk Herbstreit’s comments regarding no CFB in 2020: ‘Kirk does not know what he’s talking about’
Boy, I sure hope I see the same flack for Kelly that Coach Drinkwitz got for what he said. Not to mention Drinks comments were mild compared to that.
Really wish they would quit force feeding this rivalry on us. You can’t force a rivalry like Mizzou vs. Kansas or Arkansas vs. A&M. They take years, or in our case a war.
Personally I like the hire. Solid resume, a very obvious up-and-comer that would have been snagged away by somebody like Michigan in a few years when they decide they’ve had enough of Harbaugh. Make no mistake, he’s got his work cut out for him, but it seems he got the fire to make something happen. Looking forward to Mizzou football in the fall.
Agreed, seems like a very solid hire. Not necessarily the flashiest hire, but I’m not interest in flash, I’m interested in substance, and this guy has coached with some great people. I feel so much better about this program than I did a month ago.
I wouldn’t think there’s too much to read into that, but then again, it is Lane Kiffin. Tennessee fans, want to chime in on this one?
In fact, they are opening up an aquarium in St. Louis in a couple of weeks...
This would actually be an ok fit in my opinion. SEC experience, honestly has had pretty good HC record despite his last season at Florida, can recruit and we know what our rebuild will entail and will give him the time to build up a solid program.
All I can honestly think with this potential hire is “meh.” Seems like a Pinkel equivalent. Better than we are now for sure, but could he take the next step? I’ve been watching a lot of boards and I know this isn’t looking a popular hire with the majority of Mizzou fans.
God these crack me up every time.
You’ve got the best coach in college football, you pull top 3 classes every year. Yeah, I’d say you’re still poised for a solid future.
Clearly this is a troll, or this guy is so high on meth his hearts about to have a coronary. Thought he was just stupid until the “Mizzou’s the reason the SEC has a national network.” Wow.
Cool story Hansel...
It is a brutal business. But as a head coach you’ve got to know what you’re getting into. He was in over his head. I can’t wish I’ll upon a fellow alumni, I hope he gold so a group of 5 position and gets the kinks worked out. But this had to happen, I haven’t felt so bad as a Missouri fan in my life as I have this past week.
I’m cautiously optimistic. Clearly we had a coaching problem, but the question is what the AD does going forward. We wanted to play with the big dogs, now it’s time to act like it. Most critical higher of Sterk’s career at Mizzou, make it a good one.
Well, that’s a bummer, but regardless of their decision this team had the opportunity to make a statement and dropped the ball. I had hoped for an us vs. the world kind of attitude, but we didn’t get it.
I agree with most of it, but I know Moorhead is incredibly unpopular and they want him gin. As for my school, will the boosters do the right thing? This feels like a bigger free fall than when Pinkel took over. But when Pinkel took over we had a 20+ year losing streak to Nebraska, not once did we even compete for a division title. Odom has done less with more than Pinkel ever had to start with, so this “apples to apples” comparison doesn’t work.
Absolutely this. I remember before Yost resigned I thought Pinkel was going to go down with him. Loyal to a fault.
Yeah, I’d say that’s pretty much how we’re looking at the team and coaching staff at the moment. Need a change.
I really don’t see this ending well, for any involved parties.
Looking forward to see what we do this year. I feel like we’re going to be a much more balanced team this go around and now we’re really going to see what our coaching can do.
Yeah, I’d agree with our assessment. Really hope the boaters go shopping for a coach instead of what’s convenient.
