You're mommy's got lunch ready. After lunch you can go back to your video games in the basement.
Yeah, nothing against Northern Illinois University, but an SEC team shouldn't be playing such a school on the road. You're absolutely right... nothing to be gained by it whatsoever. A home and home series with a Big10 school would be much better (other than Illinois, Indiana, or Purdue would be refreshing).
Why on earth are we going to play Northern Illinois on the road? That's worse than playing Wyoming on the road...and we know how that turned out. Our non conference scheduling continues to be terrible overall (with the exception of the Army series).
That was tough to watch. Prayers for Marcus for a speedy recovery.
Lost in all the right talk is the game itself. Florida played great on both sides of the ball. Nice win for the Gators. You guys are better than I honestly thought, even with the layoff you had. Mizzou got a little too cute with some of the play calling on offense and Florida was in our face all night. Our O line couldn't protect like they need to.
There's really nothing new about the video in this story. It's the actual footage from the tv broadcast, not some cell phone video as the headline implies. That said, Mullen literally instigated the fight. All the players appeared to be walking calmly to the locker room until he came running out on the field like a crazy man. I agree the hit on Trask was a step too late, but that's not too uncommon in football. Every team's QB takes a few of those every season. It's a judgement call for the ref to throw the flag or not. Mullen losing his $hit over it caused the whole fight afterwards.
Yeah, not sure how the Big10 figures to have only an 8-game schedule. How will the playoff committee look at a possible 8-0 Ohio State vs. an 8-2 or even 9-1 SEC team? A lot to figure out.
I'm sorry for Cade, and for Tennessee fans on this. Once again, and as a Mizzou fan I know something about this, the NCAA shows it's incompetence and inconsistency. The days of the NCAA are numbered, but they are too stupid to recognize that.....and they continue to do things that will only speed up their remaining days.
Does anyone know if any fans will be allowed to watch any games in person this year? Does the SEC have a rule on that yet? Or are they leaving it up to each school to decide how many (if at all) fans can be in the stadiums for games?
That's a great point. And while I certainly do not have a law degree, it seems relatively simple....if the student athletes want to play, and I agree with you that all things considered, playing while in the structure and supervision of being at school is best, then why not have the athletes sign a waiver that they won't hold the school responsible if they get the virus while there? The athletes get to be in the environment (structure and supervision) that is better than most of their home situations, and they get to play the game they love, the fans get to see (on tv) the game they love, and the schools don't have to worry about litigation when there will be (inevitably) some positive cases within each team. I mean why give up the whole season because of the "risk" of getting a virus that has a 99.8% survival rate? May as well not even get out of bed in the morning...might get hit by a bus.
This is tough. I want what's best for college football as a whole. Yet I think (personal opinion) that the virus situation is a bit over-hyped. Even if the PAC12 does the same thing as the BIG10, which it very well may, I hope beyond hope that the other three major conferences stay the course and play in the fall. If the SEC, ACC, and Big12 all play, and get through it relatively unscathed, the PAC12 and Big10 will be set back for a few years. There was a previous article on SDS today laying out such a case. Just hoping to see some college football this season. Even if it means no one in the stands and all games on TV.
That was one of our worst games I've ever seen. It's like we didn't even get off the bus. Hopefully we'll have a better showing with coach Drink.
We can only hope the PAC12 won't even give them the time of day, let alone give into any of these "demands". Such spoiled punks. You got a full ride scholarship (tuition, room, board) to play football. That's what you get...nothing more. Graduate, get out in the real world, then maybe you can try to effect change if change is what you want. Until then, shut up and play football.
All excellent points. This might be a potential way to move forward (which as you said is debatable), but it seems really premature to make such a decision at this point. As is usually the case, Mizzou's non-conference schedule has no highlight games anyway. But, not sure how there could be any type of in-season rankings or post-season playoff with the conferences all playing only each other...resulting in different total number of games played.
I'm warming to this hire. He seems like a solid guy and he has had great success at all his stops. Problem is he really only has one year of head coaching experience, so we'll see. I think it will be crucial to see who he picks as his DC. If somehow we can have a solid D, and get back to D-Line U status, then that combined with his high octane offense would be a fun team to watch and one that is capable of winning a lot of games.
So much for any team ever cooperating with the NCAA ever again. The NCAA was already beginning to become less relevant....falling under the weight of their own stupidity while failing to address the whole player compensation (whatever form it may eventually take) for the last several years. Now, add in that no school will ever fully cooperate with them again, and they are officially going to be extinct. What's said is they don't realize they are the ones responsible for signing their own death certificate.
Missouri has played well against Florida the past several years...and we know the past two we've played very well. I honestly don't know what to think about this game. Missouri is so hot and cold, so on and off, this season it is hard to know which version of Mizzou will show up this Saturday. You guys have a lot of momentum and Trask is playing really well. Hate to say it, but I think this is the year you guys knock us around for a change. I hope I'm wrong.
Mizzou's football team was established in 1890. Two years before Auburn (1892) and 3 years before LSU (1893).
"On Kentucky game film: I think, No. 1, the lack of ability to convert on third downs, that has hurt us. Coming off the field without extending drives, that gets you out of rhythm…" When it's 3rd and 8, why are we throwing the ball 20 to 30 yards downfield? We need more of an emphasis on just getting into the mentality of moving the sticks each series. Whatever it takes....just move the sticks. We don't need to throw the ball 30 yards downfield if an 8 or 10 yard comeback route is open. Yes we need to occasionally stretch the defense, but the higher priority should always be to get a first down, not a homerun. We don't have Drew making those throws anymore.
I love being in the SEC, and I think a huge majority of the Mizzou fans do as well (so good that we left the Texas controlled little 12). But a renewed out of conference series with KU is what a lot of Tiger and KU fans want.
You seem to be attempting to speak for all Mizzou fans....You don't. Not sure where you actually live, but a vast majority of the Mizzou fans in and around Columbia would love to play KU again in all sports, but especially football at Arrowhead. The hoops in KC, and then alternating between campuses will be great. If you don't want to go, don't buy a ticket or watch on tv. Or maybe you would rather we keep playing Arkansas as our "rivalry" game.
And yet the last two years, haven't been reminders enough for you that we are in the SEC? Mizzou over Florida 45-16 Mizzou over Florida 38-17 We'll give you a 3rd reminder coming up here in a few weeks.
I'm going to respectfully disagree with the Missouri fans that have posted here (at least so far). I for one am glad to see this rivalry come back. And I know a lot of other Mizzou fans that feel the same way. Unfortunately KU's basketball team has usually had the upper hand over Mizzou in hoops throughout much of our histories. The last time we played in basketball, the refs all but gave the game to the beakers. Don't even get me started on that. But it was games like that, that make the rivalry so exciting, and exactly why it's going to be a good thing that it's finally back. Mizzou wanted to keep it going even after leaving for the SEC, but it was Self and KU that didn't want it to happen. Glad that they have seen that continuing the rivalry is good for both schools and for college basketball in general. I also totally agree with Adam on this....that the football teams need to get scheduled as well. Loved seeing those games at Arrowhead.
If someone could enlighten me, serious question... I thought the transfer portal was only available through the first 4 weeks of the season. Since we are passed that now, I'm assuming he would have to sit out a year before playing? Seems like LSU or Auburn would be likely landing spots but who knows. I was just surprised to see an article about the TP now that we are passed week 4.
