SEMO coach says he has a 'serious man crush' on Mizzou RB Tyler Badie
Southeast Missouri is heading northwest on Saturday afternoon to take on Mizzou.
If the Redhawks are going to pull off a shocking upset, they’ll need to slow down Mizzou’s star running back, Tyler Badie.
This week, ahead of the game, SEMO coach Tom Matukewicz said he absolutely loves what Badie brings to the game of football:
Good line from SEMO coach Tom Matukewicz this week: "I got a serious man crush on Tyler Badie." Said if he played in a college fantasy league he'd pick Badie 11 times at every position.

Indeed, Badie has been a bright spot for Mizzou this year. Through 2 games, he has 264 rushing yards and a touchdown. He also has 13 catches for 128 yards and 2 scores.
Can the Redhawks slow down the Mizzou star? It’s safe to assume Badie will get plenty of work out of the gates for the Tigers on Saturday.
