Even before the win over Arkansas, Mizzou fans were feeling good about the direction of the program. After a second consecutive win, and four out of five, Missouri fans are feeling the confidence in the football team, according to the latest SB Nation Reacts survey. A full 100 percent of responding fans said they are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That number has been steadily rising for the last four weeks and is up from 97 percent last week. After beating Arkansas, can it go over 100%? We’ll find out!
Things are looking nearly as good on the basketball court. The Tigers have high hopes this season and have jumped out to a 2-0 start, including the upset win over Oregon. Wichita State is hosting the Tigers today, and with only 8 scholarship players, so it’s a game the Tigers should win. So fans have near complete confidence in the team right now. This week, 83 percent of fans said they believe the team is headed in the right direction, up from 74 percent last week.
Around the country, college fans saw a wide spread of events between the two big sports. On the basketball court, two of the nation’s top teams were upset by relative unknowns. 43 percent of fans said they thought Virginia’s loss to San Francisco has been the biggest surprise so far this year. That was followed by 33 percent that said it was Kentucky’s loss to Richmond.
On the brighter side of things, a plurality of fans said Sarah Fuller kicking for Vanderbilt was the best moment on the football field last week. Fuller became the first woman to play for a Power Five football team. She will again be the team’s kicker this weekend.
