Mizzou, Florida promise to learn from avoidable brawl
Sundays aren’t as fun when your team doesn’t win, huh?
They’re especially not fun when you’ve got two weeks to wait until the next game and the game you just lost came at the hands of... let’s say, an instigator. Haha. Insti-Gator.
Anyway, here’s the rundown from Sunday’s post-game coverage. If you want good news, head to the bottom section — it was a good day for Tigers in the NFL!
- Mizzou and Florida issued a joint statement on Sunday regarding the halftime brawl, stating that both schools would use it as a learning moment. Maybe one more than the other possibly?

- Aside from his site’s grade card, Gabe DeArmond also posted 10 thoughts on the loss (for all readers) and Mitchell Forde posted a notebook from the evening (for subscribers).
- Dave Matter used his Sunday piece to focus on the halftime brawl, including some truly wild quotes from Dan Mullen about what started the whole thing. “I didn’t see what was going on.” Sure, my guy. Sure.
- PowerMizzou’s grade card was a mixed bag, featuring several barely-passing grades, and several more fails. You’ll need a subscription to see it.
- It’s all pretty blasé from Souichi Terada at the Kansas City Star, who went right down the middle with his grades for the week.

- Here’s your weekly Mizzou in the NFL recap:
— Our boys in Denver had themselves a day. Down 24-3 in the third quarter, Drew Lock and the Broncos came storming back to defeat the Chargers 31-30 on a thrilling last-second touchdown.
Drew still has the swag.
Lock finished 26 of 41 for 248 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. One of those TDs went to his favorite target, Albert Okwuegbunam (it was his only catch on the day).
— It was a rough start for former Tigers, as Charles Harris was ejected for a late hit on Teddy Bridgewater in Thursday’s Atlanta-Carolina match up. Not a great look for Harris, who has struggled to produce in his time as a Falcon.
— The Browns didn’t win, but Sheldon Richardson and Jordan Elliott both logged four tackles on the day. Richardson added a pass deflection.
- Head coach Bryan Blitz got his 250th career victory in Mizzou Soccer’s 4-1 win over Kentucky. The Tigers are now 2-2-2 on the season.
