Even though Mizzou games were being postponed we kept voting! Following ANOTHER postponed game, Mizzou finally returned to the field last night against South Carolina and still had a large amount of fan support behind them.
According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, 94 percent of responding Missouri fans said they are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s up from 89 percent a week ago and 86 percent following the last game. So not playing = positive results.
While confidence is high on the Mizzou side, things are much shakier for South Carolina. The Gamecocks fired Will Muschamp earlier in the week, officially opening the coaching carousel. Even though we know that had zero impact on the game and the fact Mizzou won the game, it was still a big important news thing.
According to fans around the country, this is just the first of many coaching moves this season. Roughly two-thirds of fans think at least three Power Five schools will fire their head coach before the end of the season, with 39 percent predicting three coaches getting the axe.
Making things more difficult for those schools that may be looking for a new coach, fans don’t think they will exactly be able to pick-and-choose among the next level of coaches. 53 percent of fans said they would rather coach a dominant Group of Five program than a lower-level Power Five team.
