Happy Super Bowl week!

Although I’m not necessarily a Kansas City Chiefs fan, I will admit it is pretty cool to see a team from Missouri in the Super Bowl. Getting a Stanley Cup and a Super Bowl in the same state for the 2019-2020 sports year would be pretty dang special.

It is important to note that the Chiefs’ coaching staff definitely do bring some Mizzou ties with them as they try to win their second Super Bowl in franchise history.

“I watch Mizzou all the time, I’m a big fan. I was a big fan of Barry Odom, and it was unfortunate he couldn’t get it done. I’ll still be watching Mizzou until the day I die,” - assistant head coach and special teams coordinator Dave Toub told ABC17’s Andrew Kauffman.

You love to see it.

And here’s a fascinating read from The Athletic’s Peter Baugh and Nate Taylor on Andy Reid’s Top 10 memories while at Mizzou ($$).

Here’s more on Reid’s time at Mizzou.

“What a great experience,” Reid told reports of his Mizzou days last week before the Chiefs left for Miami. I love Columbia. The university is phenomenal. I hate to admit it, but they’ve put out some good journalists.”

“(Leaving Missouri)” was sweet and sour,” said Reid. “I left a team that as just starting to climb at Missouri and was getting us over the hump. That was the sour part. I felt like I kind of ditched out on those guys, and we had all been together for a long time.”

In honor of the upcoming game and the Chiefs, Mizzou Athletics is planning for a Red and Gold Friday on campus.

Here’s one of the best games on the Mizzou basketball calendar.....the Rally For Rhyan game is set for Saturday, February 8th against Arkansas....and here’s what Rhyan Loos has to say:
