Dave Matter covers Mizzou athletics for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and he joined Matt and BK on The Big Show on Tuesday.
Dave explained why he’s been so impressed with the Tigers’ front seven, his biggest remaining question heading into this matchup against UCONN, and will we learn anything more about Mizzou this weekend? All of that and more in our conversation with Dave Matter.
Comments Off on MIZZOU MEDIA DAY: COACHES & PLAYERS SOUND OFF
The Mizzou coaches and players met with the media on Monday in order to break down the team’s 27-20 victory over Arkansas State, and to preview the Tigers’ upcoming game against UCONN.
The big topics of the day were the team’s inability to field a healthy running back (figuratively speaking, at least), Kentrell Brothers’ continued dominance, and Charles Harris’ breaking out party. The coaches also previewed their week three opponent, UCONN, who seems to have a great run defense, but not much else to write home about.
Comments Off on Getting to Know You: Mizzou CB Kenya Dennis
Kenya Dennis is quiet, he’s humble, and he’s built like a damn freight train. Mizzou’s senior cornerback burst onto the scene in 2014 as a junior college transfer, and he followed that up by his teammates voting him captain for the 2015 season.
Mizzou fans saw his talents on display in week one on a designed cornerback blitz. The result was, well, I’m just glad I’m not SEMO’s quarterback.
But what you don’t know is that Kenya Dennis is a gentleman, and a big fan of The Lion King.
BK: What is an ideal first date for you?
Kenya Dennis: Like, with a girl? Oh, alright… I just feel like it’s just supposed to be in a place where you both are comfortable and a place that you both enjoy, and where you can get to know each other. That’s what I think the first one should be about.
BK: When was the last time that you cried during a movie?
Kenya Dennis: It had to be the Lion King when Mufasa died. I was like three or four years old. That really got me. When Mufasa died. When Symbah went to wake him up, and he wouldn’t move… That had to be it.
BK: What’s the TV show that you don’t like to admit that you watch?
Kenya Dennis: Girl Code. It’s a show only for girls. It shows girls how to be girls. And it also shows them things that boys plot on about the girls. Like, the reason why all girls go to the bathroom together. Why they tell secrets in each other’s ear… Stuff like that. Stuff that guys really shouldn’t be watching. But I watch it every now and then.
BK: Why are you watching Girl Code?
Kenya Dennis: I started because I would always be with my sister, and she would be watching it at home.
BK: Are you still watching it?
KD: Uhhhhh…. I’ll stop on it for like five minutes…
Comments Off on Getting to Know Mizzou Tight End Sean Culkin
You probably know Sean Culkin as the starting tight end for the Missouri football team. You may also know him as the player that had one of the best plays of the Tigers’ young season last Saturday against Arkansas State.
But what do you really know about Sean Culkin? That’s what we tried to find out on Monday at Media Day.
BK: What’s your ideal first date?
Culkin: A first date? Man… Something where I get to communicate and get to really know the person. Watching a movie, and sitting there and staring at the screen? That’s not fun. I like to have a conversation and actually get to know the person.
BK: When was the last time that you cried during the movie?
Culkin: I’m trying to think of one… I can’t think of anything. It’s probably been a couple years.
BK: What’s the TV show that you’re embarassed to admit that you watch?
Culkin: See, here’s the thing… I actually don’t watch much TV.
Culkin: I really read, a lot.
BK: What are you reading?
Culkin: Right now, I’m reading a lot of investment books. I’m a finance major. I read ‘The Four Hour Work Week’, I read ‘Stronger’. I read about 15 books this summer.
BK: What was your favorite book?
Culkin: Probably the ‘Four Hour Work Week’. Or ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’. I’m reading ‘Intelligent Investor’ right now.
BK: What should I invest in right now?
Culkin: Nothing, man. This market’s crazy. With everything that’s going on right now? You need to wait for it all to crash, then jump in and invest.
