Hey, everyone, come see how good Luther Burden is!
- Y’all want some Luther Burden facts? I’ve got some Luther Burden facts.
First fact: He’s this week’s SEC Co-Freshman of the Week.
Second fact: He’s in Jeremy Maclin air.
Good stat via @MU4124 : Mizzou's Luther Burden is the nation's only player with multiple rushing & receiving TDs & a punt return TD.— Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) October 24, 2022
He's the fourth freshman/redshirt freshman to do that in a season. Others: TY Hilton, Jeremy Maclin, Ted Ginn Jr.
That’s pretty damn good company to keep.
- It’s yet another 11 a.m. kickoff for Mizzou against Kentucky. Bleh.
- Dave Matter has the Tigers second to last in his weekly SEC Power Rankings. Think about how close they were to the bottom... yikes.
