Beyond the Box Score

Beyond the Box Score: Sarah Fuller deserved so much better

You can put the same amount of stock in this win as you would an FCS matchup: it’s fun to be dominant but you can’t glean much from an overmatched opponent

Beyond the Box Score: Win your clunkers

Missouri won with 53 scholarship players. That’s really all you need to take away from this.

Beyond the Box Score: Elite teams are elite

Sometimes rebuilding teams lose to a top ten team on the road

Beyond the Box Score: Streak Bustin’

We all knew Missouri would beat Kentucky eventually. None of us imagined it would go down like this.

Beyond the Box Score: Anatomy of an Upset

I suggest Missouri do exactly what they did on Saturday for every game forever.

Beyond the Box Score: Recruiting and line play are important!

There aren’t many certainties in the 2020 season but recruiting and staff consistency have been winning the day so far

Beyond the Box Score: Alabama is too dang good

Looking for the little things...

That New Coach Smell: Papa, where do SEC head coaches come from?

Internal hires? G5? Other P5 positions? Storks? Where did the current crop of SEC coaches come from?

Beyond the Box Score: the “man in the mirror” edition

Tennessee is pulling a full Odom!

Beyond the Box Score: the “optimism is stupid” edition


Beyond the Box Score: the “expected outcome” edition


Beyond the Box Score: How to Disappear Completely

I’m not here. This isn’t happening.

Beyond the Box Score: the “s*** happens” edition

Newsflash: It’s bad!

Beyond the Box Score: the “does Missouri have a running-quarterback problem?” edition

There were enough offensive miscues to be frustrated, and the defense was getting tested in the one way it could be tested. And, oh yeah, the Tigers won fairly comfortably.

Beyond the Box Score: the “RIP Cale Garrett” edition

Mizzou loses a star, but the show must go on. And hey, the rest of the team is still pretty damn good.

Beyond the Box Score: the “streak-busting” edition

Missouri played an ugly, weird game against an ugly, weird opponent but finally shook one monkey off its back

Beyond the Box Score: The “Do you want to see a dead body?” Edition

Blood. Just........blood. Like......everywhere.

BTBS: The “AHHH, that’s better” edition

The Tigers made West Virginia look like an FCS team. And not like a "Missouri State in 2017" -type FCS team.

BTBS: the “It’s not as bad as you think” edition

The Tigers and Cowboys were basically even in every stat imaginable. Almost as if some unlucky bounces decided the whole thing, huh?

Texas got the breaks Mizzou needed

I nearly forgot to give the Texas Bowl the BTBS treatment. That would have been, uh, tragic.

Mizzou sucked Arkansas into a shootout. Mwahahahaha.

The Hogs couldn’t keep the big-play spigot open quite long enough.

Penalties and inefficiency could have cost Missouri against Vanderbilt and might against Arkansas.

Missouri’s rushing performance against Tennessee was nearly perfect

And it’s amazing what a little havoc does for this Tiger defense.

Mizzou’s offense is finishing drives, and Mizzou’s defense is eating up passing downs

What a time to be alive.

Mizzou has been aces at finishing drives lately

One more walkthrough before we turn the page to Florida.

Playing Missouri’s offense will stress your safeties out

This all-deep-ball offense is fun.

Mizzou’s offense is the most explosive in the country

Unfortunately, efficiency is the most direct path to success. That, and, you know, defense.

A statistical moral victory for Mizzou

Overall, stats favored Missouri against Kentucky on Saturday. But the Tigers’ inability to finish drives cost them yet aagin.

Missouri’s defense made almost no positive plays against Auburn

The Missouri defense used to be known for havoc rates and play-makers. There is nothing left.
