Mizzou News for Friday, May 29

100 Days! And plenty of HFC (hot football content) to hold you over until then

It’s only 100 days ‘til Mizzou Football’s season opener! Who’s excited?!?

To hold yourself over while waiting for that glorious day, please visit one of MANY great posts on Rock M Nation’s site.

Need to get up to speed on the teams the Tigers will be facing? See Nate “the Great” Edward’s game previews: Central Arkansas & Vanderbilt. These will continually post every Tuesday until (checks calendar)... August 4.

Is analyzing film more your thing? If you would like to familiarize yourself with what you might see Coach Walters’ defense do out there, tune in to Coach Tim Bussen’s Film Rooms! Part 1 (Fronts) — Part 2 (Stunts) — Part 3 (Cover 1)— Part 4 (Cover 0). This a 7-part series that will run every Weds/Thurs until June 10. Then, in July, he’ll be back with MORE FILM!

We’ve got SO MUCH coverage for you over here at Rock M.

On to the Links. Happy Friday!

  • COMING UP: A few members of the masthead (me included!) wrote about the times Mizzou made us cry; it’ll be up by lunchtime. Bring your tissues.
