Do we still need to talk about Tennessee? No? Cool!
Let’s get to some odds and ends re: Mizzou Football that have nothing to do with Tennessee, because who wants to talk about that game any more?
- Mizzou is currently a 19-point favorite in this weekend’s game over North Texas with an over/under set at 68. Mizzou is 0-5 ATS this season, and it doesn’t seem likely they’ll be able to keep an under while their defense struggles this badly.
- Texas A&M and Mizzou will kickoff at, you guessed it, 11 am CT!
Gotta make sure that Vandy-South Carolina game gets the 3 o’clock slot!
- Happy belated birthday, Kris Abrams-Draine (who coincidentally made this week’s MV3!)
Yesterday at Rock M
- In which Aaron examines the relationship between defensive scheme, execution and how the Mizzou coaching staff is and isn’t responsible for both
- In which we picked an MV3 because we couldn’t just skip the content!
- In which the AP Top 25 poll doesn’t include Mizzou (what?!)
- In which Nate and BK spend a lot of time talking about the future of the Mizzou coaching staff, including whether or not Steve Wilks will be here after 2021
- J’Den Cox can add another medal to his already overflowing trophy case! The Mizzou great officially took home the bronze medal at the World Wrestling Championships in Oslo, Norway!
- The Queen’s Gambit but at Mizzou and without the substance abuse? I’d be down!
