I want to beat Georgia tomorrow, bad. I want this one more than I've wanted a game since kansas in 2007. It's not a season ending catastrophe if Missouri does not defeat the Bulldogs tomorrow, I realize that. Georgia is a very good team, a team capable of winning the SEC and is quite frankly a better team overall than Missouri is. Great coach, great players, no shame in losing to Georgia. And that's why I want this one.
I want this one because of everybody who said Mizzou will never have a winning season in the SEC. Mizzou can't hang with the big dogs of college football. I want this one for TJ Moe and Elvis Fisher and Zaviar Gooden and Kip Edwards and the other seniors who suffered through a 5-7 final season at Missouri. I want this one because of the way Texas A&M's season went last year. Because of Johnny Manziel. Because of my friends at SEC schools who laugh at our program. I want this one because James Franklin has endured more unwarranted criticism than possibly any player in Mizzou history. I want this one to shut up the drunks in the deep south who think Missouri is just across the border from Canada. I want this one for recruiting. I want this one for Pinkel (I also want people to learn how to spell his name). I want this one For Everyone Who Doubts Mizzou (FEWDM). I want this one because I love Mizzou and wouldn't even consider going anywhere else for school. I want this one because I want a bowl game. I want this one because I want to win. I want this one for Spoon and WIlly Mo holding down the fort in Atlanta. I want this one. Go get em Tigers. MIZ
