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.
One of those games where it's too bad either team had to lose. What a great game. Congratulations to SC.
I'm not usually to complain, by and large I really like SDS and the articles. But this time I couldn't resist posting this comment: I'm not sure which is worse, the editing of this article, or the fact that no one at SDS spoke up and said, "no, that's a stupid idea" when someone tossed out the " I'm thinking of writing an 80's wrestling analogy" at the weekly article idea meeting.
All I know is, Mizzou better kick open's a$$ this week.
Not the cleanest of games, but a nice win especially defensively. Since the week one head scratcher, our defense has improved and is in better positions and tackling better. Offensively, we opened up the playback some now that we are in SEC play. KB's playing well but man does he make me nervous when he stands so flat footed in the pocket. Totally agree with Chi50...USC is way better than their 1-3 record. Helinski is the real deal, he just had a rough day today, fortunately for Mizzou.
Should be a really good game. Seems like it always is when Mizzou and SC play. This will be a good test for Mizzou. I didn't know much of anything about Helinksi until last weekend when I saw a video on his backstory and his brother. Much respect. Wish him the best.....just not this coming Saturday. Mizzou needs this win.
I agree with your assessment 100%. And for what it's worth, LSUSMC, you seem to always post fair and insightful comments. Much appreciated from you as compared to the all too often troll crap from some of the other posters. And Adam, your article was a great analysis too. I know you are a huge Mizzou fan as am I, and I hate to bash the team or Odom on any level. But at some point, you have to call a spade a spade. Odom has unfortunately developed a history of not fully preparing his teams until they find themselves in a huge hole. It's time that even the most loyal and die-hard Mizzou fans call him out on that. It's got to get fixed. On the bright side, there is no reason that they can't now get properly motivated and prepared to win the next several games.
I'm worried about number 2 on this list. I'm not positive (can anyone confirm?) but I think the team just flew out to Wyoming today (Friday). I was hoping they would get out there earlier so they could get a workout or two in ahead of the game so they can get acclimated to the elevation. The elevation in Laramie is about 7,100 feet. By comparison Denver's is about 5,300. This will definitely be a factor in endurance for some (probably not all) of the players, especially the linemen. Hope we can get a nice lead and then sub guys in and out a lot.
Yeah, I'm not exactly sure what any changes to diet will do to help. They just need to get out there a day or two early and have a few workouts there. There bodies should adjust decently enough if they do that. But if anyone knows about exactly how a diet change will supposedly help, I would like to know.
Those are definitely some bold predictions. Here's hoping at least some of them come true.
What makes you think South Carolina beating Mizzou is a foregone conclusion? Or why Mizzou having a top 25 preseason ranking is so far fetched? Just curious... serious questions.
Agreed. I think too many college players go to the NFL too early. I know they want that paycheck, but sometimes waiting might get them a bigger one. That said, glad we don't have to face him anymore, but unfortunately for Mizzou, knowing you guys, you have 3 more RB's ready to step and with no drop off in production.
^ SDS...again...an "edit" button would be nice! I meant good on Kirby and Georgia (not Kentucky).
EXACTLY. I should have mentioned in my post, that Kirby definitely took the high road here. Good on him and Kentucky.
Unfortunately Mizzou is definitely in a precarious position here. I can see why it would be at least worthwhile for teams to make inquiries about certain seniors. And taking that one step further, I can see why SEC West teams would inquire since Mizzou is in the East. None of the West teams mentioned in the article is on Mizzou's schedule for 2019. But then there's Tennessee. Of course there is no written rule about what is considered "good form" and what isn't, but there are unwritten "coaching fraternity lines" that I think most coaches adhere to. I gotta believe that one of them is don't poach a kid, or otherwise even inquire about a player for a one and done season (seniors) when you have his original team on the schedule. From the list of teams contacting Mizzou, it seems that everyone except Tennessee recognizes this. Kind of low-class of Tennessee to do this, in my opinion. Just an observation.
I was thinking the same thing. I mean, I'm all for the enthusiasm and confidence, but Sundvold was a basketball player at Mizzou back in the day. Not sure how much he knows about football. Over anxious SEC East winner comment aside, I do agree with him 100% on his comments on the NCAA and the pending appeal.
Time to earn your paycheck, Jim, and fight the hell out of this one. Heavy-handed NCAA strikes again.
Unfortunately, I can only agree with all of these comments. Not sure what our AD was thinking. We haven't scheduled well for the better part of the last 20 years.
Yes, definitely Great news! I was a little worried about him possibly leaving after Crockett left. So glad he's going to stick around. I'm sure having Bryant here next year factored into his decision.
They might want to start by putting the NC game on network tv. I have cable and so ESPN is no problem, but not everyone does. I think it's a travesty that the NC game isn't available over the air. They could at least simulcast it on ABC which owns ESPN.
No doubt. Yeah....here's the plan....we'll let our 150 lb kicker run the ball. What could go wrong?
It was shocking to watch. I truly was routing for the Bama and the SEC to win, but if Bama has to lose, it may as well be to a class act like Sweeney. Bama fans, you definitely now have a little taste in your mouth of what it's like for the rest of us when we have to play you. Use it as motivation. I pity every opponent of Bama's next season. I have a feeling once the shock and sadness of this wares off and turns into motivation, Bama will roll even more than usual next year.
That's what I thought as well. Must be the start of "the Kelly Bryant effect" already. While I don't think we played nearly to our potential (which is a whole other conversation under Odom) in the bowl game, I do think the polsters underrated us most of the season, especially the last three weeks. If we start getting more respect now with Bryant, so be it. Too bad it couldn't have come with Lock though.
Big fan of yours, Tyler, after hearing your story. You put up a great fight and were an inspiration to many. Rest well. No more suffering. Only peace and joy for you in heaven. Prayers for the family you left behind. You did Purdue proud.
Yeah, their coach is an arrogant a$$. I liked Mack Brown ok, but I can't stand the new coach.
Agreed. We didn't even have enough blockers on the right to clear a path for Lock. 3 Ok State jerseys closed in on Lock. Hard to know for sure, but I wonder if Lock went off script and went right when he was supposed to go left or up the middle. In any event, the 2nd and 3rd down play calls were equally poor and poorly executed.
