If you’re looking for a take on Georgia from the vantage of another school, this preview at Rock M Nation is a good place to go.
Spoiler: judging by this, they’re not very optimistic about Mizzou’s chances.
So here’s what Missouri needs to hope for to pull this one off:
- The new pass-first scheme takes awhile to take hold and an offense used to running has trouble transitioning.
- Jamie Newman is merely ok and doesn’t add enough of a run threat to make an impact.
- The receivers are too young and inexperienced to reliably convert passing downs or create more explosive plays.
- Having seven straight games – and two against Alabama and Auburn – is enough to beat up the roster and have them limping in to their second true road game of the season where Missouri catches them flat-footed before their Bye week
…that’s a lot of things to go right, huh? And in my mind that would just even the playing field, not make it so that the Tigers can win it.
