Kansas should be a LOT better than Mizzou this year. I'm surprised the Chickenhawks are still scared to play us. Same with the Shorthorns and A&M.
6 days, 17 hours ago on SEC, Big XII To Officially Tip Off Hoops Challenge In November
The SEC doesn't have any teams as remotely bad as Kansas has become. Weis should worry about winning a conference game... while Stoops needs to worry about actually living up to 1/2 the hype that his program seems to always get going into every season.
The SEC is top heavy for sure... but imho... in many years, the #4, 5, or even 6 team in the SEC is better than the #1 team in most other major conferences. For example, I'd say that UGA, UF, USCe, Bama, LSU, and A&M were all better in '12 than ANY team in the Big 12. Some say that A&M's success is proof the SEC is over-rated, but the fact that A&M easily handled OU in the bowl game is proof the Ags have just gotten that much better.
1 week ago on Kansas’ Weis Backs Stoops’ Criticism Of SEC
I'm beyond disappointed in my Tigers. They were absolutely dominated from start to finish.. Honestly, if I had just watched that game w/out having the score shown on the screen, I would have assumed Mizzou was losing by 20+.
Colorado State looked like they wanted to be there and were hungry to advance in the tourney... Mizzou, not so much. I haven't given up on Haith yet, but I think he needs to be on the hot seat.
Good luck to UF in the tourney!

I don't think anybody is Johnny Football. His season last year was probably the most insane thing that I've ever seen in sports. It will be interesting if he can do the same this year with teams more prepared for what he brings to the table. I do have very high hopes for Mauk though.
I agree with you on the play calling. Why do you continually run your injured QB up the middle... especially against some of these MONSTERS that reside on SEC defensive lines. Granted, I'm sure many of those plays were read options that Franklin chose to keep, but why call them in the first place?? The empty back field has to also become a much more rare occurance going forward.
2 months, 1 week ago on MU’s Franklin Tries To Stay Upbeat With Twitter Twirps
I HATE people who talk crap on twitter/etc that they would never have the courage to say to someone's face. If I was a professional or collegiate athlete... I think I would just stay off twitter. Nothing good ever comes from it... especially if you are the type who takes stuff at all personally.
I was HUGELY disappointed in Franklin last year.. but who knows how bad the injuries affected him. I hope that James is 100% this year... and that if he is not the starter, that it is because he was beaten out by someone better.
Bama already gets all of the best recruits anyway. The only thing this does is maybe free up Saban and his coaching staff to spend more time/effort on the current roster.
The only reason I don't like it is that schools already go WAY overboard with recruiting. Now they are going to be allowed to setup entire call centers that do nothing but contact recruits 7 days per week?? At some point, enough is enough.
2 months, 1 week ago on NCAA Recruiting Changes In Question, But Bama Keeps Hiring
2012 was just a woulda/coulda/shoulda type year. If Sheldon doesn't skip class and get suspended, then they very likely beat Syracuse and finish 6-6. If Franklin is even remotely healthy, then they probably beat Vandy and finish 7-5 which would be considered a decent first year in the SEC...
I will say that I believe Missouri is a long ways away from competing with USC, UGA, or UF on a consistent basis (not to mention some of the killers over in the west). Will they eventually get there?? I'm honestly not sure. Recruiting will certainly have to get a LOT better in the coming years.
* to be fair... they could have easily lost to ASU, UCF, and Tenn to finish 2-10 on the year which would have been a true disaster.

I dunno... As a Mizzou fan, I was really happy to watch Mike "suitcase" Anderson get his at Mizzou arena last night.

I don't know much about him in college... but I loved watching DT at Arrowhead back in the 90's. Really one of my all time favorite players and the only Chiefs jersey that I own bears his name on the back... RIP.

Mizzou definitely needs to do a better job of keeping the top in-state prospects at home. I mean, while the state of MO isn't exactly a recruiting hotbed, MU is the only division 1 football program in the state. Just locking down the borders would be a step in the right direction as far as being reasonably competitive in the SEC goes.

Mizzou certainly doesn't look like a sure thing when you watch them play, especially not on the road. I'm kind of surprised they are still in the top 25. My only hope as a Mizzou fan is that Bowers gets healthy ASAP... and that all of the Haith stuff isn't too huge of a distraction.

Congrats to Bama and evil genious Nick Saban. I'm not a Bama fan by any means (don't dislike them either)... but it was awesome to watch them beat down over-hyped ND and watch the "fan fail" in the eyes of all of their snooty fans.

Wow. Didn't see that one coming. The only reasonable explanation that I can think of is that he must have been having issues with Wisc admin... or the B1G perhaps??
5 months, 2 weeks ago on Report: Bielema To Arkansas
I think A&M would crush Texas... and it would do a lot for them respect wise. Texas was bad last year, yet A&M still lost to them in their final season in the Big 12. UT got the last laugh. If I was an Aggie fan, which I am not, I would want to extract some revenge out of Bevo's big arse.

Yeah, he was a pretty good recruiter and qb coach apparently. I'm just not sure he was cut out to be the play caller. It will be really interesting to see which direction the offense goes now. I assume we will be keeping the spread. A&M proved that it can work in the SEC... albeit with a solid o-line and great qb play (mizzou had neither this year).
I hope they go outside of the program and get a quality OC, instead of promoting a guy from w/in who may/may not be ready. I wonder if they could lure Christensen back from Wyoming?? Granted, I might be looking at him through rose colorered glasses due to the success we had in 2007.

With our terrible first season in the SEC.... some of our top fb recruits de-committing... and Dixon leaving the basketball team... it feels good to FINALLY get some good news.
Dang. Looks almost like a Miami game.

I like the schedule for Mizzou. It allows us to hopefully get some momentum going before we run into any of the really heavy hitters in the league. I just hope we can stay healthier next year... and generally just not suck as bad as we do this year.
7 months ago on SEC Releases 2013 Football Schedule
@Eagle78 @John at MrSECI'm guessing that it has to do with Bama being a HUGE name... and Bama/Tenn being a traditional rivalry game in the SEC.
Personally, I am looking forward to LSU/A&M more. It will be A&M's 2nd chance at an elite SEC team.... but there is something very interesting about watching the well oiled college football machine that is Bama.
7 months, 1 week ago on SEC Releases TV Schedule For This Saturday
If you can just pretend that the game prior to the lightning delay never happened... then Mizzou was actually kinda sort of competitive... :) Seriously though, I think that delay saved us from losing by 80 in this game. Anyway, a bye week couldn't come at a better time. Hopefully our guys can get healthy, reset, and then be ready to finish the season with some level of respectibility.
Hopefully AJ is ok. I don't really "like" Bama persay (don't dislike them either), but I do have a ton of respect for Saban and what he has created in Tuscaloosa. I'm really looking forward to seeing just how far they can go this year. They look to me the best team in CFB this year by a wide margin.
