NCAA Football: Louisiana State at Missouri Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NCAA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Missouri Tigers fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts. NOTE: This poll was conducted prior to this Saturday’s games.

Despite the back-to-back losses to start the season, confidence in the Tigers took only a marginal hit last week.

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, 79 percent of Missouri fans think the team is headed in the right direction. That’s a drop from 89 percent a week ago. The shakiness is understandable, really. Fan confidence is normally more tied to the on-field performance, and I’m sure the numbers will greatly improve this week. But realistically, it all comes down to how you feel about Eli Drinkwitz. Generally, I think fans are positive he can get this whole thing going, and that’s likely to improve the numbers next week.

Missouri has been dealing with one of the most difficult schedules in the country this year. Having already faced Alabama, they still have both Florida and Georgia on the schedule, all three teams among the best currently playing in football. Beating LSU is a nice win, and there are certainly some more losses coming our way, but that’s alright. We’re seeing the plan take a little more shape.

All fans were asked of the teams that have already started to play, who is the best team in the country? Only Clemson beat out the three SEC teams.

Clemson had a difficult test of their own this weekend, taking down the previously undefeated Miami Hurricanes. That game was voted the most anticipated matchup of the weekend, beating out Tennessee at Georgia and Florida at Texas A&M, among others.
