I wear Mizzou gear because win or lose that's my team. And while I may support sec teams against non sec I would never sport anyone else's gear for any reason ever. But nonetheless I ask why would Mizzou ever think that a NC is not possible? And soon. And I believe many fans of Miss thought they had a historically better team (not so) and were certainly going to take Mizzou to task. But how did that work out them the last 3 meetings? Mizzou is possibly the 3rd best team ever in the big eight (greatest conference ever) and not only were they within a whisper of playing in a NC twice in the last 10 seasons, they also should have been nation champs twice in the 60's. With the offense we have now all we need is for the defense and special teams to return to form and we could be great for a non blueblood team. And while personnel wise it doesn't look like it would be this next season there are some really intriguing guys on defense that are young, tough and fast. And if they can get comfortable with the systems both the D and O have speed to burn.
Why not? We've been 1 win away to play in a NC twice in the last decade. I wasn't aware that ol' Misses had more that us. But I'm sure a great number of teams will play in one long before the Misses do. And probably we will be one.
He's probably not done. I hope that kid from uga is ready to be lead receiver. I mean who else do they have
Every year you love these RBs that will seldom play. Miller and Larry the third will knock the spring game darling back in line. But if injuries are the flavor of fall football its nice to know the cupboard is still full.
That's MU not MY. Oh and btw after the top backs at each school you really have to give the edge to the pigs. While Witter knows his job well, his diminutive size and lack of speed limit his production more than anything. And Strong should be as good as Crockett, will he ever learn the playbook and stay out of the doghouse long enough to find out? Its hard to think he might from what he's shown so far.
There actually was some heated rivalry at one time between the schools but it was in basketball. It was when Day and Mayberry were media darlings even though Peeler went down there and schooled them both. And there still is a somewhat basketball rivalry. While some didn't like Anderson leaving to go there, it was no secret that was his dream. And even though he did a nice job at MY, I for one am glad to see the racist go.
You are correct wolf. I remember when Neil Lomax had a career year with the then stl catds, he reportedl averaged 3.25 seconds from snap to release. A great amount of time. The following year he sucked averaging a half to a full second less time. While fans complained about Lomax I tried to tell them very few qbs completed any passes while on their backs. I only watched Blaine and the jaguars a couple of times because that line was terrible.
This is the same rehashed crap since Mizzou joined and improved the sec. Every year the writers at sds kneel and blow Alabama. Overhype ut and uga. Deride both Mississippi schools and forget about mu altogether. The highest preseason prediction for mu has never been higher than the music city bowl. Which is actually where we will be at the end of 2017. We haven't hardly lost a game in the sec. But we have lost our minds on game planning and defensive scheme half the time. Hence, a 500 record give or take a couple games. But since 2012 uga was the "most talented" team every year. And ut was on the cusp of breaking thru every year. And no one else in the east could ever compete in west yada yada yada. And McFadden always stunk.
Assuming this is the same one I watched earlier on a better sight.
Nonetheless, truly a remarkable story and a pretty decent video that is worth a watch and I recommend
I know Charles Harris was invited and I'm pretty sure he's attending. So who else have you left off this half-passed list?
I may be wrong but he wouldn't be able to play but 1 yr even when changing sports. Something about moving on to post grad schools or something. Wolf? What say you?
Wow Jon! What a waste of space and your writing skills. BFD!
Underachieving and overrated. The LSU brand.
I didn't feel hyped at all. But then at Mizzou we got a whole crap load of Porters that are world beaters so the bar is much higher.
Where will jaden's wrestling acumen earn him a living? MMA? WWE? Or football? I don't see anything other than a degree earning the best income for Cox. Although I'm told (here) he can play based on hs ball. Why not? If he is committed who commits more than wrestlers? I hope Cox does what is best for Cox. And it may not be parlaying his wrestling fame into a football fiasco.
Should have read "pretty good family affairs ".
On a "side" note let me say that at first I didn't want a MSU coach at MU but oh my gosh! Cuonzo martin is killing it! The 3 yrs here and 3 yrs there thing bothered me but I'm old school where coaches built legacies. But its obvious now, this is his destiny. And with porters insistence that he play with another all American MU's current class of two is already ranked 16th by at least one service and higher than kansas. What if Knox and Tilmon and either Jontay or one of the two guards that coach is pursuing we could have the top class. And we've had some pretty family affairs at Mizzou but none with as large an imprint on the university as the porter family. And there's still more of them. Not to knock the amazing Cunninghams. M I freaking Z!
Nate would have been able to push at least Witter for playing time but sounds like he may be fighting for that third spot with Larry III. who has impressed after arriving surprisingly early.
Btw. Athlon has always stunk. Never close in predicting anything. They are the football jayhawks of magazines..
And Lock will play on sundays. But will he get decent team or be great like gabbert stuck with a garbage team and dumbass coach
If you want to talk about skewed numbers and Lock then lets talk about the ridiculous number of dropped passes his so called "receivers" didn't . Or how young this entire offense was/is. And as for this upcoming season, it will be astronomical the yards and points this O puts on the board. With the entire O returning. Now lets get the D back to form and for Gods sake lets become takeaway kings again.
One of them? ? Yeah, the best one.
I was kinda excited about all the starters. And how much upside and speed and size, all that. But all 6 east teams are in the top 7. And we are next to last. Still, a field goal kicker and deciding on a defense and we could be . . . yada yada yada.
But for who? Traitor Travis? Or the recently well traveled seldom unpacked Counzo Martin? If Ford had stayed at MU they probably would have finished the basketball season ranked higher than the NCAA champ. As is they finished 4th in the polls i believe. Thanks Trav. I dont think this class matters very much outside the trenches because we really are deep with young stars in the wings of most positions. Just figure out your defense strategy and away we go. We did need Graves and i think we get him when he comes out of juco. But all those other losers like Boyd and other local traitors can kiss mine.
That one stings. So does Boyd and other home staters. Recruiting looked rather promising months ago, not so much for a while now.
Everyone pushes kids out to make room for more talented recruits even when there may only be a slight chance of landing them. Thanks fellas and good luck but you're not good enough to play here.
Slow your roll there baloney. There's no football being played right now. And it's the dead period for recruiting. And I will talk about anything Mizzou anytime. I wont be seeking nor will i ever need your approval. Got it? With that let me respond to brc. It's tough to watch Kim especially being a product of Norm who was and is a god. But he sucks. So did Haith and his way of leaving penalties wherever he goes. And so did Mike Anderson with his prejudices and never ever recruiting a white kid. Pretty much every coach since has sucked and im afraid the next one will too. And there may never be a perennial top 25 mens bball team again.
Geez! I haven't been here for a couple of months and everyone is more wrong than ever. The type of defense Cross was using works in the 10 of 12 conference. Not in the SEC and not the first go round. It will improve. I said the o-line would be good. Was i right? Always! I was surprised by a couple who started and one who didnt (A J Harris). Yes wolf it would've been nice if Strong played more but he's lucky to have played at all. Didnt qualify until last split second. He might be a little slow witted. And Witter who i have always criticized, btw wolf dont ever compare Ish to Josey or Murray really dhowed me something. He knew what his assignment was every play. He id just weak and slow. But he did his job. I told you Moore and Howard will be stars, and they will. I also take credit for working so hard for promoting John John long before spring. And im telling you now that with the surprising depth at LB we fell into at the end of the season either of the last 2 yrs D will work better this next season. You're welcome
