Default The Mizzou hype-machine

Mizzou went thru the first 4 weeks without playing a conference opponent. I would say their schedule was easy but that's an understatement

The first 4 games were as followed:

vs Murray St
vs Toledo
@ Indiana
vs Arkansas St

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

Default Re: The Mizzou hype-machine

Just curious if you have watched them play or are just going off of what it looks like on paper.

I watched both the Uga game and Florida game and Missouri is a damn good football team. I think they are the best team we will play all season.

1. Their defensive line is very impressive
2. Their quick hit passing game is not a good matchup for us because it requires good linebacker play
3. Maty Mauck actually didn't look that great against Florida but he doesn't have to be great because his receivers can get balls that would go incomplete normally. Think multiple Alshon type of receivers on one team. I am willing to bet you right now that they have at least one TD where their receiver just grabs it over the head of Vic or Legree.

We can win this game but I don't think Mizzou is overhyped.

We went straight into conference play our 2nd game. Mizz had 4 cupcake games to warm up for a SEC.opp. Then 3 very banged up SEC opp. They should play well they have had 7 warm up games . But they are going to hit a wall this weekend. GO COCKS !!!!

Default Re: The Mizzou hype-machine

Mizzou is a much, much improved team this year. I haven't been overly impressed with them outside the Florida game. However, after putting up 500 yards of offense against a very stout Florida defense you'd have to be a fool not to give Missouri a lot of credit.

The possess serious matchup problems for us, especially in the secondary. The key to the game for us is to eliminate turnovers, and find a way to establish the run. If we can run on them early it'll open up the passing game for Dylan and give us our best opportunity to keep their offense off the field.

Their offense is very comparable to UGA's offense when healthy, and they shredded us. I wish it wasn't on the road, but it is what it is.

On the other hand, you have:

Kentucky
Vandy
Arkansas
Tennessee..

Default Re: The Mizzou hype-machine

I agree and disagree...You're right they've had a very favorable schedule so far with 4 easy OOC teams, Vanderbilt, and banged up Georgia and Florida. However they have looked very good dominating a weak schedule so far.

When you look at it, this really is a huge trap game for them. Missouri is being hyped up incredibly, in the Top 5. South Carolina is being dogged, and ranked a lot lower. This game has all the intangibles of a South Carolina win. Now it's South Carolina's job to make it happen.

You got to hand to the enemy when they get it right. Personally I don't think this game will be close...and we will come out on the low end of the deal. Hope I'm wrong.

Default Re: The Mizzou hype-machine

regardless of what you think of their schedule, MU won those games. If they weren't good or really good they wouldn't have beaten UGA in Athens nor would they have followed it up with a whipping over UF. I think it's pretty impressive.

Yea, they beat two severely beaten up teams in Georgia and Florida.

We need to line up and run it right down their throats.

Mizzou has been more impressive than us this year. Seriously, what have we done that outshines Mizzou? Why do some people feel we deserve to be thought of as better than them? I don't understand. These are the same people who thought we would destroy UGA and UT.

I like the optimism and confidence but I respect what Mizzou has done up to this point. I don't think they're top 5 but top 10 yes.

UNC, inconsistent team, gets knocked out by ECU, but comes down to the wire against the U

UGA, you guys got a banged up UGA, the second week UGA probably would of beat ya.

UCF, Has taken out a BCS school Penn St., and took out #8 Louisville that also blew UF out of the water last year.

Kentucky, I'll give ya that they are on par with Toledo

Vandy, turning to be an ok team, and you guys beat them pretty well.

Arkansas, Another team that I thought was decent, but they can't keep it up. USC, and BAMA beat em bad.

Tennessee., UT is the dark horse this year it seems. Should give Mizzou a good game, and with there tendency to knock out players, Probably 3 WR and your second String QB will have season ending knee injuries. Watchout for your first loss here.

If you guys take care of business against USC, and then go on to Dominate UT. I will know you guys are for real, and I look forward to your team possibly facing BAMA in the SECCG both being undefeated. Then I'll hope you guys give them hell, and represent the East.

I always love how fans of schools take things and turn them around to get fired up.

In this entire thread there is only one person that is calling them overhyped. ONE!

Yet you go to that thread and Beakerbash KC (the person who started the thread) says "sums up what SC fans think about Mizzou"

That post doesn't sum up anything about what SC fans think. It sums up what ONE SC fan thinks.

Completely agree they are not a Top 5 team. I would put them in the 16-18 range. Vegas knows this, which is why the line is -3....basically home field advantage.
