Finally... It’s game week! BUT, before we get to actual games, we have a question for you. Which game is the most important to Mizzou this season? Mizzou looks to build off of the strong finish last year and they could be in store for 8+ wins this year, but it comes down to some key games.
We asked, and you answered. Here is what Twitter had to say:
Time for a #POLL! Football season is finally here... so we ask YOU: Which game is the most important to #Mizzou this year?— ROCK M NATION (@RockMNation) August 29, 2018
So, Georgia is the clear cut winner here with 52% of the votes. 39% said that Purdue is going to be the most important game, which makes sense because that was a shock to many last year, 5% said Memphis (Homecoming, which is always important, right?!), and 4% said other. Let’s check out some of the replies.
Gotta be Purdue. First road game will set the table for potential bowl eligibility. The team is losing the three games after that, so going into Purdue and avenging last season's worst loss probably locks in at least a 6-win season.— Jaryd Wilson (@JarydWilson) August 29, 2018
A little bit of a glass half-empty look with the 3 game losing streak following this game, but this is a common belief.
I have a ton of friends from Arkansas who are insane-o hogs fans... As long as we beat them, it's a happy Holiday Season— Klinton Silvey (@KlintonSilvey) August 29, 2018
And those are the best kinds of Holidays, right?!
Most important- UGA. Most telling- Purdue. If we get stomped by Purdue again early in the year it’s going to be a long first half— Ryan Ching (@Rching95) August 29, 2018
It could be a longer season if that happens...
The SEC championship game, duh!— Delicious Design League (@DeliciousDL) August 29, 2018
FLEXING EMOJI! Keep the faith!
Georgia has to be. It is a division game and a win could mean another division title.— Ole Jay (@ole_jay) August 29, 2018
When do we start booking Tickets to Atlanta?
UGA and Bama would be reaching for the moon. South Carolina and Florida will determine MU’s ceiling in the East. Since gotta pick one, South Carolina— Frank Eldred (@frank_eldred) August 29, 2018
Just as a fun game today, imagine beating Alabama @ Alabama. Allow yourself just a moment to do that. Pretty fun, right?
Personally, I think Purdue is the most important game. Put to rest the demons of last year, get a little positive momentum going for when Georgia comes to town and you never know what can happen. As Pete and David said on “Zoukeepers” this week, “Games aren’t played on paper!”
Now, it’s your turn to vote! Let us know what you think in the comments or let me know on Twitter @Mhill_.
