It’s the start of a bye week for Missouri and it couldn’t have come at a better time following Saturday’s 10-3 loss to Vanderbilt. Many questions will be answered today at Gary Pinkel’s media availability, including the possibility of a change in Maty Mauk’s indefinite suspension.
Here’s two things you need to know:
- Mizzou’s performance on Saturday continued what has been the Tigers worst season offensively in more than a decade under Pinkel. But, it wasn’t a complete loss as the defense played extremely well again despite overwhelming odds. See how the Tigers graded out on Saturday here.
- It has been 13 quarters and four weeks since Mizzou scored a touchdown, becoming the first team since Kentucky in 1996 to score six points or less in three straight games. And, as you can guess, Mizzou alums aren’t pleased with the lack of production on offense. Some of them took to Twitter to voice their displeasure.
