I think we can table the talk of Odom losing his job.
The Tigers are bowl-bound.
They can afford one loss in their next two games, though that would be disappointing.
They should beat Tennessee and Arkansas to finish with four consecutive wins.
Tennessee seems to be the only real threat. I thought the Vols hit their high-water mark with a win at Auburn.They proved me wrong against Kentucky. What a terrible loss for the Wildcats.
As for the season analysis, let's see how it ends. If Mizzou wins out and wins a bowl game, that's nine. That's pretty good. Then, yes, you would probably be a bit negative to hang onto the two losses that should have been wins. But, the nature of those games will never not sting for Mizzou fans. This might be a what-if season, but let's be clear: Nine wins is big for a third-year Mizzou coach, period.
I said let's see how it plays out after the Kentucky loss, and I was being too optimistic.
I'll say let's see how it plays out now, to keep from being too optimistic.
