Missouri scored 79 points and totaled 698 yards in demolishing Delaware State on Saturday. But the Tigers’ real MVP from the tail-kicking didn’t take part in one snap against the sorry FCS team.
This morning, we offer a hat tip to Missouri’s mascot, Truman the Tiger, who did a whopping 495 pushups in the ridiculous victory at Faurot Field. The mascot did pushups after each Tigers score, so you can see why the number would skyrocket quickly.

Here’s hoping Truman enjoyed a fabulous dinner buffet at one of the many fine establishments in Columbia to recover and refuel after the taxing afternoon. Or better yet, perhaps the mascot devoured 20 Shakespeare’s pizzas.
Go easier on your mascot next time, coach Barry Odom.
