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.

If they have the game, and if you can go this is a fun trip. Good folks and friendly. The Golden Girls alone are well worth ogling.(Of course, I’m an old dawg and your milage may vary.)

No, they did not interview me personally, so they must have come up with the idea to blame stubborn ass Kirby for inexplicably implementing an already antiquated offense at Georgia that wasted all that blue chip skill position talent when even Kirby’s former boss saw the light after the 2014 season all on their own.
Funny how that works.
I think #4 alone would be a recipe for a loss on the road for the Dawgs. The first 3 would basically make it a repeat of last year’s game only with a better defense for UGA. So if they’re hoping for a win, they’d better hope #4 shows up that day.
The one thing you take from Kirbs resume, is what little nicky did at the bammers, established the defense straight away and find the offense in 2-4 years, Kirbs is almost on that same track (providing 2020 season takes place)…
The frustrating thing is that instead of embracing a wide-open offense from the beginning, thus learning from Saban, he instead went backwards and likely cost us a National Title in the process because of that schematic stubbornness.
Lots of ifs there. He also doesn’t mention Corona Virus. Good chance the season won’t make it that far. My niece tested positive today. She’s gonna be fine but Shit is getting real. This thing is super contagious. Far more than the flu.
The common cold is highly contagious. The media keeps harping on “new cases” like that’s the actual news, and not the fact that we’ve cut deaths over 90% since our highest day. They also ignore the new cases they’re trying to make people freak out about are almost exclusively in the under-30 year old range who got infected because these same fear porn peddlers in the media and in politics who continue to want to close churches, parks, and beaches were like, “Yeah, gather by the tens of thousands in protests and riots… no big deal.”
We need to continue protecting our most at risk members of society (the elderly and those with preexisting conditions) for whom it’s deadly.
The only commissioner in sports who actually is leading right now regarding covid-19 is the golf commissioner. Every one else, even Sankey, is a feckless, scared politician either believing in the fear porn or peddling it themselves.
Let’s Hope there is a season.
Shit is getting crazier by the day.
Glad I don’t live in downtown anywhere USA.
Defunding the police 1 billion $$$ in New York City makes me think, what the hell is happening?
The virus may not be near as bad as the results of total destruction of humanity of the United States.
For What it’s Worth:
