What a joke
They then went on the road and beat a Vandy team by 3 tds. Again... not exactly a "test"
As luck would have it they went on the road and played UGA. UGA is a top 5 team when healthy. Without their 3 starting WR's and 2 starting RB's they are not. Mizzou gets the W. ESPN begins to build them up.
The next week... once again... they get Florida team that offensively is a disaster. With Florida without their starting qb and rb Mizzou gets the win. The hypemachine is complete.
No one talk about the first joke that was 5 games. No one talks about how UGA was depleted. All the talk is about how Pinkel is a COY candidate and Mizzou is the best team in the East.
Im not sold and neither should anyone else be. Mizzou will be shut up after this weekend and I really believe it will be in a convincing matter. After we win we will not get props. The talking heads will continue to talk about how the "East is in shambles" or "The East is down" etc...
They are not a top 5 team and it will show Saturday
Yea, they beat two severely beaten up teams in Georgia and Florida.
We need to line up and run it right down their throats.
