Watch Mizzou's position groups dance, boogie at fall camp
Missouri’s offensive linemen twerked to Jason Derulo’s “Wiggle” on Sunday, putting to rest an unofficial camp contest as the best-dancing positional group, in one man’s opinion.
The Tigers have taken turns dancing as part of the team’s warmups during fall camp, following the lead of coach Gary Pinkel, who boogied following the team’s Cotton Bowl win against Oklahoma State in January.
It’s been an underreported but fascinating part of these fall practices, one that Missouri’s athletic department graciously has shared with the world.
It’s tough to beat this video of the offensive line.
The safeties danced to Soulja Boy’s “Bird Walk,” which was pretty entertaining.
The quarterbacks and kickers chose Sugarhill Gang’s “Apache” (sampled by Sir Mix-A-Lot in “Jump On It”), continuing the hip-shaking theme.
Though the team didn’t share it via Twitter, the defensive line sampled Pinkel’s Cotton Bowl dance for their indoor rendition.
Brandon Kiley, a producer for KGTR, a Columbia-based sports radio station, took an informal survey to determine the team’s best dancer, but clearly he asked before the offensive line had a chance to do their thing.
Asked #Mizzou O players who the best dancer on the team is. Consensus? Soph CB Aarion Penton. Also said CB John Gibson THINKS he's the best.

I’m sure there will be more to come, but can we all agree that the offensive linemen and quarterbacks claim the title for best-choreographed?
As far as singing, defensive end Shane Ray may have that skill on lock with his rendition of “Everybody” from the Backstreet Boys.
