Good morning! Well, not so much if you’re a Cardinals fan (best of luck to the Royals today). But, Missouri is 72 hours away from a season-defining game against UGA and there was no shortage of news yesterday.
Here’s what you need to know now:
- Kentrell Brothers has had a sensational start to 2015; he currently leads the nation with 74 tackles. Brothers will need to carry that over into Saturday when Mizzou visits one of the nation’s top rushing attacks, even without Heisman Trophy candidate Nick Chubb.
- Barring a complete collapse, the Tigers will be bowl bound come December, but where Mizzou might be headed is still very much up in the air. Saturday will go a long way into deciding just where the Tigers could be headed, but here are some guesses as to where coach Gary Pinkel could be the week after Christmas.
Other Mizzou news from around the Internet
- Ca’Ron Baham may have lost his senior year, but he hasn’t lost his commitment to Mizzou. The 3-star athlete reaffirmed his pledge to the Tigers in a sitdown with the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
- Freshman punter Corey Fatony grabs national honor after impressive performance last Saturday against Florida.
- Tigers display sympathy for Florida quarterback Will Grier and UGA running back Nick Chubb.
- Drew Lock posted one of the worst QBRs for a Mizzou quarterback since the Tigers moved to the SEC. Lock received his official welcome to the SEC against Florida, writes the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Dave Matter.
- With Spurrier gone, Pinkel is now tied for second on the active wins list.
