The Greatest, #6: Homecoming

In a sport as laden with tradition as football, Mizzou long ago played a role in one of its primary traditions.

The Greatest, #7: 1960

6

In 1960, Dan Devine's presence at Missouri was totally felt, Danny LaRose made a run at the Heisman, and Mizzou's student-body-right sweep dominated college football.

The Greatest, #8: 2013

12

The 2013 season was one of Missouri's greatest, because of not only the results, but also the stories behind them.

The Greatest, #9: Dan Devine

The Greatest, #11-10: Faurot and a picture

Don Faurot and Missouri were synonymous.

The Greatest, #13: Braggin' Rights 1993

9

The 1993 Missouri-Illinois Braggin' Rights basketball game, a triple-overtime classic, had every type of possible significance. It was great in the present tense, and it had a lasting effect on...

The Greatest, #14: 2007 receiving corps

31

Mizzou's 2007 receiving corps was an incredible collection of talent, a combination of four-stars and former walk-ons, a collection of All-Americans and future award winners.

The Greatest, #32: The Henry Josey story

9

The 2013 football season was an incredible one because of the success on the field. It was a transcendent one because of the stories off of it.

The Greatest, #67: 2013 Volleyball

The Greatest, #70: 2014 Cotton Bowl

15

Missouri's 2013 season was already a rousing success. But it wouldn't have felt quite as successful without a happy ending. In the 2014 Cotton Bowl, the Tigers got just that.

The Greatest, #92: Kreklow to Henning

1

Molly Kreklow and Lisa Henning were instrumental in two different program turnarounds for Mizzou Volleyball.

The Greatest, #95: 2013 defensive ends

Homecoming has defined Pinkel era

38

Rock M Nation spent much of this summer running down the list of "Mizzou Greats" But have you seen the list of Mizzou Grates?

24

It really might be the greatest season we've ever seen from an individual Mizzou athlete not named Ben Askren.

The Greatest, #16: 2007

26

Even our ridiculously optimistic, we're-fans-after-all predictions weren't optimistic enough.

The Greatest, #17: Christian Cantwell

6

He is Missouri through and through, and he is one of Mizzou's greatest ... even if we never got to watch him cave in the middle of an offensive line.

The Greatest, #19: One State, One Spirit

9

Something that fills you with this much emotion, with this much pride in your school, absolutely must be on a list like this.

The Greatest, #18: Chelsea

C’mon … of course Chelsea Thomas is #18 on our list. Did you really think she was going to end up anywhere else?

The Greatest, #20: MU-NU 1978

On a chilly field in Lincoln, Mizzou took on a great team (perhaps the best team in the country) playing its best and won.
