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.

Nah bro , the L from Middle Tennessee State on Homecoming has to be on this list.
We're right where we started the season- right outside of the Top 25. Six weeks in at 4-1, I can't argue where we're ranked. The Wyoming loss was a horrible first impression for 2019. Bad for optics, but the loss has proven to strengthen the internal fortitude within the team. The loss hurt, but now in retrospect I think we were better for it. The team is formidable and fun to watch, everyone is growing together. Most importantly not false ripe. When we get ranked I think we will have earned it because of our play on the field, instead of preseason projections. In the truest sense of reality, we have zero margin of error as a team and in the eyes of AP voters. But If we keep winning, then we keep climbing up the ranks.
I agree it is better to lose early. In this case, I mean psychologically. In my opinion we showed weak mental resolve as a team vs Wyoming. We thought we could just show up and win. The players got a wake up call and realized they needed to take a look in the mirror individually and as a team. It think it worked, and we're treated to good brand of football right now from Odom and his staff. Ive enjoyed watching a team, playing one play at a time and taking nothing for granted.
We just lost a lot of production, leadership and the glue of the defense. But let me remind my fellow Tiger fans that this is de ja due' again. Stalwart LB Michael Sherer got injured as a Senior mid season and Freshman Cale Garrett was next LB up. Thus beginning his career. Who's next guy up this time? According to Odom- the trio of Junior Aubrey Miller Jr (6'2" 225); Freshman Chad Bailey (6'0" 240) or Sophomore Cameron Wilkens (6'2" 245) will attempt to fill the void. I think Wilkens has the lead of the three. Regardless who it is i expect our Total points allowed to go from just under 14 points a game to 21 points a game. Well i hope it doesn't go any higher than that. We're solid on defense this year and the new 4-2-5 scheme seems to cause a little more confusion for opposing offenses so far. Most of the East has suffered major injuries to Day 1 starters so nobody is gonna cry us a river, and they shouldn't. This is what depth is all about. Things just got interesting...
Right now in total Defense, Mizzou is allowing just under 14 points per game. With Garrett out, that may go up to an entire 7 points a game. Im recalibrating, my exceptions on Defense based on this. How much can our offense absorb this loss, will be key. Right now on Offense we averaging 39 points a game. So we have to continue to score in the 30s to have a chance to win.
I don't like either team, but I pull for the underdog in this game. I wanna see the football version of crabs in a barrel.
I echo your concerns. Our defense will be key to us winning. DC Walters has a great opportunity to confuse Hilinski by disguising coverages and pressuring him with blitz packages. The jury is still out on Walters as an effective DC. I want to see an aggressive effort to stop the ball. We haven't been tested thru the air yet and USC has a great attack. Good luck to both teams and lets hope for no major injuries.
I was hoping he came to Mizzou. Best of luck
LOL! Yep at Homecoming, we clapped him off the field to a hollow resonance of boo's heard in the stadium. These comments get funnier and funnier as I scroll down.
This is hilarious.... straight comedy! I love your letter Pig. The SEC East strikes again
Wait a minute, where is Texas on this list? Agreed on Tennessee.
I actually think his best fit is Texas A&M. Simply based off his previous recruiting ties to that state. Especially with the cache that A&M has over Tech. He would have an impressive pool of offensive talent to utilize in Texas. Plenty good amount of gunslingers too. But we know that isn't probable at all with Jimbo's contract.
Not to mention he had 3 different Offensive Coordinators in 4 years. Nothing wrong with a critical and public assessment especially while under contract. He has to man up and improve his deficiancies.
I don't have a problem with that assessment. The kid barely played QB in HS. Basketball was his forte. The arm talent and physical size was always there but not at all mentally. I recall seeing Lock as a Freshman and Sophomore looking like a deer in headlights countless times just as the Coach mentioned. He learned from Maty Mauk , aka Mr. Improvise in a clean pocket. And yes Drew followed suit when under pressure. He's a work in progress but I'm sure in time he will prevail. He's with the pros now, so he can focus on his craft.
The Tiger spirit is back in Mizzou!!! That was fun to watch. I can't wait to these 2019 Tigers on the battlefield this Fall.
I laughed so loud! You're right, i didn't realize it.
No need to panic , Oklahoma has produce the last two Heisman QBs. That's attractive to thousands of young QBs across the country. When did the SEC last produce a first draft QB? Johnny Manziel. Nothing wrong with this young man wanting to maximize his potential.
Who else is is predicted as worse? I'm surprised that they are so optimistic.
Mike was an excellent hire at the time, but you could see the consistent flaws of his style of play. The full court press thing was good back in the day, but ball handling is at an all time high now. His style was predicated on weak ball handlers. Forwards and some centers can handle the ball now. Also his half court sets were rather bland. And unless he adapts to the new school, he will only be a short term solution for any program. Im appreciative for his time on campus and bringing his nephew on board. DC has had a nice NBA career.
Quiet as it's kept , LSU can win the entire Tournament.
I'm pulling for the LSU Tigers in the tourney over everybody else. Once I saw them take out UK and UT at their venues, I knew this team was special. They can go all the way with those athletes. I just hope that he Wade thing doesn't cast a shadow on what the players have achieved. Best of luck Tigers
Who's writing this nonsense? Thank you fellow SEC members for rebuking this take. Smh
This NCAA thing has awakened and galvanized Tiger fans everywhere. I think its good for a University official to outwardly express some of their expectations. Its a bar and a standard being set that needs to be focused on all year.
Finally a Vol fan that makes sense. Don't claim your program shops at Dillards, yet dumpster dives behind walmart. LOL Not a good look at all.
