He hasn't indicated anything publicly.
I like your thinking in terms of not being a very high scoring game.
Yes, probably more so Mevis.
He had some ups and downs as a freshman. He seems to be pretty tough-minded. I'm sure he'll learn from Saturday. He came back and played better later in the game.
My hunch is this is Carlies' job. Williams made one big tackle but should have had an interception in the first half. The staff believes Carlies is the better option, but there still could be some rotation there.
For sure. Both teams have found immediate impact players.
Because the front four wasn't getting home against the pass. The only way they could generate any kind of pressure on Sirmon was to send a blitzer. It worked - but it left the DBs on an island in some cases.
In theory, yes, but if the pass rush gets to you quickly, there's not always time for receivers to get past the marker, especially on third and long. If the defense is giving receivers a deep cushion, those shorter throws can pay off, too, and still convert the first down.
My picks will be published tomorrow. I'm leaning blue.
Beyond Saturday's attendance, Mizzou leadership realizes that it needs to sell more tickets. You'll be able to read Reed-Francois' thoughts on the topic. Her basic philosophy is this: She can't control if the team wins or loses games to draw in more fans, but she can control what kind of experience fans have at the games that will make them want to come back for more. Remember, she came from Las Vegas, which, as she described, has become the sports and entertainment capital of the world. She's very passionate about delivering an experience that will lead fans back to Memorial Stadium.
Well, only two others saw the field, so the safe bet is Parker.
Based on what he had to say yesterday - his first interview at Mizzou - I'd go with yes. He explained that with his foot injury he wasn't comfortable running downfield routes that required sudden cuts. Instead, he just caught screen passes that gave him more freedom to find a crease without as much side to side shifting. But he said he feels better this week. We'll see if his role expands. I suspect it will. Snaps, too.
If I had to pick one place to watch a game before the two options I'd go with Allen Fieldhouse 10 times out of 10. Even if you hate the home team, it's still a special place to watch a game. Rupp is an old barn. There's no mystique to that place. It's big and loud but nothing like Allen.
Eil is a practical coach. You can design an intricate game plan, but once the game kicks off, you adjust and stick with what works. Badie worked on Saturday. There was no sense in trying something different as long as he was productive and healthy.
I'll go with at least one.
