FOOOOOOOBALLL!!!!

without comments

Happy New Year Tiger Fans!

Football season starts soon. Coach Odom had the media on lock down this summer, so Mizzou has scheduled a public scrimmage Saturday morning to get ready for the season. Missouri’s flagship university will host the Fourth District Normal School* football team. ┬áKick off is scheduled for 11:00 a.m.

Being a practice game, morning kickoff, Labor Day weekend, and the first of four straight home games to start the season, I don’t expect tailgating to be very crowded. I’ll be there early of course, Lot D and all. We’ll have various to be determined breakfast items. Bring some, and bring yourself as well.

Excitement for the game is so high I heard the following comments last night (true). Person 1: “Who are we playing, I don’t even know who we’re playing.” Person 2: “Who is that, I’ve never even heard of that school. Where is it?” We were at a soccer game, so probably explains some lack of general sports knowledge, but still. SMS, seems like maybe the rebranding efforts still need to be stepped up. Maybe you can just change your name to Missouri next time.

I attended 20 minutes of one practice this fall where I was most impressed on one of our defensive coach’s cursing ability. He was easily a Top 10 curser. Based on that extensive research, I feel confident in predicting WINS, occasional GOLD PANTS!!!!, a return to the SEC Championship game, and overall roughly a 15-0 record. Go Tigers!

Finally, some relatively important changes for the season that will impact you if you go to Tiger Walk or carry a purse. Tiger Walk has been moved, it will now be on the other side of the stadium, starting in front of Mizzou Arena (ish) and going down by the east stands to the south end zone. On purses/bags/etc, Mizzou has joined lots of other places in requiring clear bags only. They say small clutches are permitted, but that seems like a personal issue to me.

*Yes, Fourth District Normal School is what the school was founded as. On a side note, screw ku.
