Senior Day nears, award nominations continue to pile up, Mizzou hits the top 10 in the CFP rankings

I’m sorry. Before I can continue, I just need to share this. EIGHT NINE TEN STEALS. OHHHHHHHHHHHH, MAMA. YOU SPEEDY LIL’ THIEF, YOU. Just a menace out there, taking that ball away.

Now back to our regularly scheduled topic.

As Mizzou Football prepares for their last home game of the season, the Tigers were announced on Tuesday night as no. 9 in the new CFP rankings, the highest ranking in program history. Jaden’s got the scoop, to go with some fun little facts.

As such, it’s also Senior Day on Saturday, and Mizzou is set to honor 27 seniors. Here’s a reminder from Brandon and some words from the man in charge.

Can’t wait to see what D-Rob has planned. Love that guy and will miss his presence.

Moving on to awards.

JUST GIVE HIM THE AWARD, YOU COWARDS. The man Nate likes to call “Muscle Hamster” has the best story of everyone, and is the most impressive, and is a mf delight. (read more at

After the SEC inexplicably did not award him Co-SEC Offensive Player with the fella from LSU, at least someone stepped up. Congrats, Cody. (Read more at

He deserves all the flowers. Give him the whole damn garden.

Anyway, the awards don’t extend to just Cody Shredder.

How ‘bout some love for the O-Line? (

And Coach Peoples! (

Brady deserves YOUR vote, fans. Remember when you said mean things about him and wanted Horn to play early on? You still want Horn to play? Didn’t think so. So now you should reward him with your votes as part 2 of the Davey O’Brien is ready to go. (read more at

On to the Links!

But, Brady. Come on, man. What’s going on with that whisking technique? You’re cooking up eggs and you’ve got that wide of movement? What sort of bowl are you using man, you’re going to slosh those eggs all over the place. That’s a ton of egg whites all over the kitchen counter that now require a sanitizing agent and you’re missing the cleanest part of the egg in the first place. Get a firmer grip on the handle of that whisk and create smaller movements with the wrist! Cool celebration, though! 20/20

3. Missouri (8-2), Beat Tennessee, 36-7 (Georgia & Alabama are 1a & 1b) It’s not custom around here to doubt the guys in Las Vegas, who can afford those big buildings for a reason. But when they set Missouri as a slight underdog — at home — to Tennessee, it felt off. Well, it was, and Missouri again showed that it is a very good team this year. The shame of it is the Tigers may have done this a year early because, in a 12-team CFP, they’d probably be the SEC’s third team this year. Of course with the momentum created, and the solid recruiting happening, this may not be a one-off. The vibes in Columbia are really good right now.

  • Sounds good, coach.
  • Yet another visit for The Prez (James Madison) this weekend to check out his team! The vibes are immaculate in CoMo.


Other Mizzou Sports

The University of Missouri swimming and diving program hosts the annual Mizzou Invite this week, Nov. 17-19, as nine schools from coast-to-coast are set to make the trip to Columbia. BYU, FIU, Kansas, Lindenwood, Missouri S&T, San Jose State and TCU are among those commencing on the Mizzou Aquatic Center, with Nebraska and Wyoming competing in the diving events exclusively.

  • Speaking of Volleyball, the Tigers are set to take on no. 20 Florida in their final home match of the regular season, and tickets are just $4! The giveaway is a Mizzou scarf (wondering if it’s the long soccer-style one I got earlier?) and they’re honoring two seniors. This squad is YOUNG, y’all, though Dilara will be missed; she is a competitor.
  • Learn more about Mizzou’s freshman gymnasts. Also, I have a post about their Sunday intrasquad coming out in the AM. It’s got videos. And pics. And so many quotes. Love the team. Love the staff, especially Shannon. Love love love.
  • Just a friendly game of paintball for the softball team. I bet it wasn’t competitive at all.
