Mizzou Tigers pennant What's On

Mizzou Tigers pennant Never mind Saturday.....

Offense still not (at all) good...

From here, the Tigers enter their bye week having gone 40 possessions without a touchdown, dating back to the fourth quarter against South Carolina on Oct. 3. Mizzou failed to convert all 14 of its third-down chances Saturday. In their last three losses, the Tigers have moved the chains just three times on 41 third downs.

Saturday’s latest touchdown drought marked the first time since 1937 that Missouri hasn’t scored a touchdown in three consecutive games. Don Faurot was the head coach that year. Paul Christman was a season away from becoming the starting quarterback. In other words, these Tigers are chasing the wrong kind of history.

Loss aside, Fatony still impresses.

"I had no idea it was coming," Brothers said after the game. "He’s a tough guy. It was good to see him have a nice time running the ball. He’s already a star — he punts the ball so well and he’s become such an essential part to this team that it’s just crazy. Especially as a freshman."

Fatony a rare highlight

In a stadium he’d visited several times before college and with "quite a few people" in his personal cheering section, wasn’t the rookie nervous?

"Replace the word nervous with excited," Fatony said, "and multiply it by five."

Offense sputters, defense still awesome.

The defense is more of an after thought when the offense plays this poorly, but again, the Tiger defense impressed. Terry Beckner Jr. stepped up his play in the pass and run game with a sack and two tackles for a loss, Harris continues to be a force behind the line increasing his total to 15.5 tackles for a loss on the season, and Kentrell Brothers extends his NCAA tackle lead with another 12 tackle game.

Report Card (SEC country) (Take a wild guess what the offense and defense scored)
