The Rock M Nation Twitter poll is back for another week. Up until the season, you can expect to see category specific polls and be sure to vote so you can have your voice heard! This week, the poll asked who would lead the Mizzou Defense in Tackles for Loss. Before we get to the results, here’s the Top 5 in the TFLs category from the last 3 years:
Terry Beckner Jr.—11.0
So, recent history shows us that a linebacker will show up near the top, but someone on the D-Line usually ends up leading by the end of the season. Will that trend continue? Let’s see what Twitter had to say.
Running away with this race is Terry Beckner Jr. with 53% of the votes, followed by Terez Hall getting 21% of the votes, Cale Garrett 18%, and Tre Williams with 8% of the votes. I’ll say this, if TBJ is getting consistent pressure, that will open up a lot of things for Tre Williams because he could be facing 1-on-1 coverage. That will also open up things for Hall and Garrett to fill the gaps and get in the backfield to get their TFLs. I don’t think TBJ will lead the team in this category because of the attention he will receive, which is why I picked Cale Garrett, but just because the numbers might not be there, does not mean he has a huge impact on every snap.
Here are some of the replies:

TBJ will make a great many people feel like they just got hit by a bus.— King Sprunti (@KingSprunti) August 1, 2018

Tre W. TBJ is a force and will face double teams. Use common sense, not fan favorite big names.— Big MO G (@TheRealGaryMO) August 2, 2018
Don’t sleep on Tre Williams.
The fan favorite is TB but the correct answer is Cale Garrett.— William Quantrill (@WillyQuantrill) August 1, 2018
Mizzou linebackers love to disrupt the backfield!
