The most important moments of the Mizzou Football Marching Video

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

Mizzou Football approaches the season with some style

If you spent any time on Twitter at all on Sunday, you likely caught a glimpse of a locker room video from Jonathan Nance that spread like fire around Mizzou Twitter.

The video — a work of performance art and pure, unbridled beauty — got people talking.

Of course, this video is nothing but good news from an on-field standpoint (as Father Bill pointed out above.) However, we also wanted to highlight some of the video’s more important moments (and inspiring figures) from an emotional standpoint as well.

1. The Original Formation

This is precision work from a formation perspective — sorry, Marching Mizzou, but y’all are just wrong here. Only teams with gonzo levels of chemistry are this well-choreographed.

2. Daniel Parker is NOT MESSING AROUND

You may think sophomore tight end Daniel Parker is treating this exercise as just fun and games. That’s where you’d be thinking wrong. Parker’s game face is next level here. I don’t think I’ve ever taken anything as seriously as Parker is taking this march.

Daniel Parker is going to score 20 touchdowns this year if he brings this level of focus to the field. He will wreak havoc on opposing secondaries. He will fell many foes with his stare alone.

3. Whoever the hell this is

Gotta be honest, I have no idea who this dude is on video quality alone, but I can tell you that I would die for him.

EDIT: I have now been informed that this hero is, in fact, Jamal Brooks.

Let us give thanks.

Thank you, Jonathan Nance, for blessing us with this video. Truly a perfect example of inspired posting.
