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.

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.
All the poaching in the world will not help UT until they learn to develop talent. Its that simple, UT already out-recruits Mizzou annually.
But they are the only ones calling players everyday. You have to admit that is pathetic and desperate at best.
So this Senior class ranked 13th in the SEC in recruiting and 43rd nationally. But Tennessee wants to call these guys every day??? You guys almost had me sold on the storied past and glory days of the Vols, but I will never buy it in todays context. First off, UT has out recruited us every year that we have been in the league yet our record against them is overwhelmingly superior. This is a silent compliment to the way the Tigers develop players and finds diamonds in the rough and still beats UT. I could care less if anyone gets poached but I will forever, never respect the Vols after this They talk a good game and hate that we're in the SEC. Blue Blood, only because of the past, but currently UT is fraud, sham, and a malcontent of a football program.
Im curious which players were contacted by whom. Especially Tennessee, who were they after?
Im happy for him and I think his best days are ahead of him. He has perhaps the highest ceiling to ever come from Mizzou. Ive never forgotten that he was a Basketball player giving it a go as a QB. He admitted he didn't understand various defenses until his senior year. And also I appreciate and respect what he did to set the SEC record for TD passes. That being said, you are right, he was not on the same collegiate level as QBs Chase Daniel, James Franklin or Brad Smith. Those guys actually produced offense, Drew always seemed handicapped or tied to he hip with his OC. And thus making him more of a game manager and not so much a difference maker. The number 3 jersey thing is definitely a head-scratcher. Im not calling to retire his jersey.
In all honesty, these are young coach issues. Good grief, Saban really must love this game of football. There's no way I would want to rebuild my staff on both sides of the ball at his age. This is where I would truly consider retiring. It will be very interesting to see how he handles this and the product he puts on the field next season.
We have been since Odom has been HC and we have still stomped the Vols
I only saw the 2nd Half, but listened on the radio for the 1st. The final series was head scratching.... First off, Lock under center!??! Why? For two plays in a row? We never did that the entire year and now they want to do it? Arrogantly, The OL got whooped by there slants and swims. Theres different angles in gap responsibility from a three point stance. I would have had more confidence with that formation, if I had seen it at some point earlier in the year or even the game. But no, Barry and Dooly want to call running plays. I would have even been happy with sprint option versus the QB keep from the RPO. Which, Lock didn't even look downfield for the pass!?! I don't understand why they chose not to throw. Barry Odom has failed this team at the end of games in every nail-biter this year. He has to take step forward in situational play calling and clock management.
If Hurts transfers, he's jockeying for pole position. That would be a good match if it were to happen.
After we played Purdue, I instantly became a Rondale Moore fan. That young man is Rocket Ishmeil electric. A Special talent indeed.
Great year for the SEC, this list is proves it. Stoops, Allen both from UK, Vaughn from Vandy even a QB from Bama these are all uncommon to say the least. This kinda validates the leagues parity.
VK, is that you? Rarely do you become unglued in disdain, especially with a fellow Tiger fan. But hey, it stinks we didn't get a more prestigious bowl. Let's just hope we get quality practice reps and put up a good fight. MIZ
The Exceptional teammate of the year award goes to Jalen Hurts. Which they should rename it to the Jalen Hurts Teammate of Year Award. Wait there is no such award, but they should create it. His story has intrinsic value that goes well beyond a sport. Total respect for that young man.
Great game til that fake punt. Smh, another young coaching mistake. Trust me I know, we have Barry Odom. But I want to congratulate the Tide but especially Jalen Hurts. I hope Bama creates a Jalen Hurts teammate award that is highly coveted and honored. I also hope he has a successful NFL career as a QB. The East closed the gap as a whole this season but came up short in the end. Best of luck to both teams and their respective bowls.
Embarrassing UGA fans! So what happens if Alabama wins and you all don't make the CFP? Will you all "Roll with the Tide for a day"? That is the faintest call for help I have ever heard in life. Take out your "Wishbone" and put in your "Backbone", drop the inferiority complex while you're at it. May the best team win.
Wow, two Dbs suspended and now this DB is out. I hope we can put this game away early in the 1st half and let the backup QBs rotate. Lets get a look see into next year.
I saw that too. That running back is the truth, I hope they build enough confidence in their program to want to rekindle the Border War.
To his credit he's done what was needed to succeed, and that is to slow down the game- for the sake of our defense. Our defensive wounds are best with minimal exposure. Making offensive Time of Possession is vital. It'll be interesting how things turn out next year, when he has a new QB to call plays for.
