Top 10 Moments: No. 8 - The Kick Return

Before we dive headfirst into basketball season, I've compiled a list of the Top 10 moments from a Mizzou football season chocked full of them. Each day, I'll unveil another moment until we culminate with the single most memorable moment from the 2007 season.

8. The Kick Return
(cue video to 00:51 or -6:44)

-- Missouri ended all kinds of droughts in its 2007 season. Although no one was clamoring for it to be 1982 again (I'll take 12-2 over 5-4-2 any day), in late November, Jeremy Maclin provided a blast from the past. With the Kansas game looming, Maclin's kickoff return for touchdown, Mizzou's first since Ricky Doby in 1982, was a 99-yard, one-finger salute to the "trap game" Tiger fans were scared of all week. Maclin's big day gave him the NCAA record for all-purpose yardage by a freshman, and more importantly, helped set up Armageddon at Arrowhead one week later.
