Notice I said some in the headline. And to be clear, it’s not the Tigers of the Mizzou variety. It’s those gross purple & gold ones, of Louisiana State University. I don’t like those Tigers, y’all, but alas—they are doing what is safe for all by announcing that if you aren’t providing your proof of vaccination, you must show a negative Covid test within 72 hours of game day in order to gain admittance to their stadium.

Gabe checked in with PowerMizzou in light of the news…

Well… that isn’t great. Especially considering that all over twitter was news of Mizzou not actually enforcing their supposed “mask mandate” on campus in buildings, so excuse me if I don’t have much faith in this “system.” At least they are encouraging people to get vaccinated. Not to be a Debbie Downer, but I am at the point where I don’t expect a lot of people to do anything these days for the good of others. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Moving on to more positive matters…

Drink appeared on the Marty & McGee on Tuesday afternoon, and told a great little story about his phone tag with THE Nick Saban.

It’s time for a new Hot Seat, Cold Tub! KP’s guest this week is none other than Keke Chism!

The guys want YOU at Faurot this season to cheer on the team!
