If you don't think that rain helped us, I don't really know what to say.
Sure the rain helped us, but it also cost us 10 points because our punter dropped the ball at our own 20 twice.

Rain or no rain, our red zone defense was solid. Sure it helped that Mizzou couldn't really pass on a couple of those drives, but we stopped them from scoring in the red zone like 5 times - most of them not in the rain.

Mizzou is the #7 offense in the country. The rain itself isn't gonna stop a top 10 offense. It took multiple defensive stands.

Also, if we were to play them again, I would bet you we would play better offensively. Coaches decided to run the ball a lot early in order to take the heat off of Scar, and it killed our momentum early to run when we didn't need to. If we were to play again, I'd think our play calling would be more even.

I may be wrong on this but I think someone said we are/were #2 in the Nation in red zone Defense. This is a lot like those Charlie Strong Defenses.

No, I'm always too opinionated, and usually wrong. Just wanted to have a good conversation, on Sunday afternoon, after a great win. But, that's impossible in the digital world.

Y'all take it easy.

How do you not think the rain favored us?
I was there and I agree, the rain was the momentum changer. I never leave early, but the heat has been oppressive at every game this season. We need Ray to put some pressure on to get us more early season night games.

I got wet, but it felt much better than the heat. With us in the lead, the lightning delays weren't even that bad.

To OP, I appreciate your perspective. I was watching from home and share many of your assessments. Kudos for your for sticking it out and staying to the end.

To everyone on OP's back for posting his thoughts, lighten up. It's football not politics.

As far a true miracle games (IMO) it is behind, (in no particular order), Shaw off the bench at the wrong Columbia, "The Fade", Achilles vs 'bama a few years back, and 1980 Wake Forest.

Bro you got ran through so hard all you can come up with is "were you there"

All of you pessimists deserve to be called out. We fought our ass off and won a big game and we'll fight next week too. Everyone just assuming we'll get drug or would get drug that's cool, but expect to be called on it when you're wrong or you post something ridiculous. This was ridiculous.

I was thinking the Columbia Tigers were going to win big.

But once our guys forced Missouri to settle for FGs instead of TDs, I felt like we would find a way to win.

And if we played them again on a dry field, I think we would find a way to win again.

If you're going to add 4 points to all of their fg then you have to do the same for us and you have absolutely no way of knowing that some of the same variables wouldn't show up again. You should have actually said " if we played again and Missouri was perfect and we still made all our mistakes they would win by 31".

I think the rain covered the entire field. We adjusted and played well, they didn’t. Lock threw 2 picks, Mike didn’t. Our only significant mistakes were the 2 mishandled punts and 2 dropped passes. They mishandled a punt. They screwed up a kickoff, they had numerous ill-timed penalties. All plays count. We ran the ball more than many wanted to see, but that was done to balance the offense and also put Mike in manageable situations. He managed the down and distance well. Muschamp is now 10-3 at Carolina in games decided by 7 points or less. Hard to find fault with that kind of success. But some on here would rather win the stats than the score. We’ve played 4 SEC games, Missouri has played 2. Yesterday’s game used to always be the ones we lost. I’ve seen it happen far too many times.

There were many games through the years that our guys played just good enough to lose. I'm glad it was Mizzou who did it yesterday. And they seem to be pretty good at it.

Some of you really take yourselves seriously. Probably the same people that tweet at football analysts that aren't bending over patting South Carolina teams on the back.
