NCAA Football: Missouri at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back, Tiger Fans, to another episode of Before the Box Score with Nate Edwards and Brandon Kiley! First up are remarks on the continued success on the recruiting trail for your Missouri Tigers. This seems to be the bill new norm, and we like it!

Previews of Mizzou’s upcoming opponents also continue and up this week are Kentucky and Mississippi State. Nate and BK wonder, are Mizzou and Kentucky are actually a lot more similar in football than some fans would care to admit?

To put a bow on everything, the hosts question if there be College Football in the fall of 2020. It seems like a conference only schedule is where that is trending, but Nate and BK discuss the options on the table and how likely they actually are. Let’s get to it.

Episode Breakdown:

:15 - 19:30: Let’s start with the fun stuff— roster management! Mizzou lost two Thompsons since we last podcasted— Antar and Khmari Thompson entered the transfer portal and now Mizzou sits at 80 scholarships (after a commitment from a JUCO DE!). Let’s dive into what’s happening with the roster. Mizzou is ranked 18th in recruiting, which is pretty fun to think about, right? What should Mizzou do with that last scholarship spot, if anything?

19:31 - 31:56: When you think about Mizzou Football in the SEC, what should Mizzou Football be in a 10 year period? There is a comparison to Kentucky here that some fans might not like, but it is kind of the reality as of late. It also doesn’t help that Kentucky has been beating Mizzou recently and was likely a contributing factor to Barry Odom no longer being the head coach at Mizzou.

31:57 - 41:22: Right after Mizzou plays Kentucky, they have an interesting test in facing Mike Leach and the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Let’s look at how the Bulldogs might look under their new head coach.

41:23 - 1:08:56: Alright, this has gone on long enough without talking about the thing everyone wants to talk about... Will there be Football this fall? If so, what will it look like? Nate and BK dive into a few different scenarios.

1:08:57 - END: Final Thoughts and BK has opinions on the people who believe those in sports and those that cover sports do not actually want sports to return.
