Knee-Jerk Reactions: Mississippi State 51, Missouri 32

This one stings, but it shouldn’t let you lose hope. Missouri surely wanted to put icing on the cake of what has been a better-than-expected season with a road victory over Mississippi State, but that wasn’t in the cards Saturday. Following Missouri’s opening drive touchdown, a muffed punt by Cade Musser gifted the Bulldogs their first score, and from there …

Knee-Jerk Reactions: Georgia 49, Missouri 14

A big day for Missouri athletics didn’t get off to the rosiest of starts. I’m writing this before the Tiger men’s hoops team takes the court against No. 6 Illinois, but you clicked on this to read about football, so we’ll just set that aside. It would’ve certainly been a memorable day if both men’s basketball and football could secure …

Knee-Jerk Reactions: Missouri 50, Arkansas 48

(CAUTION: Overused movie quote ahead.) Are you not entertained? I’d say there were several times throughout that wild game between Missouri and Arkansas that Tiger fans said both “Oh yes, we’re winning this!” and “Oh no, not again.” But in the end, the Tigers earned their fifth-consecutive win over the Razorbacks with a 50-48 win that is definitely up there …

Knee-Jerk Reactions: Missouri, 41, Vanderbilt 0

One thing is for sure: Missouri could ill-afford to put up another letdown performance against Vanderbilt. They certainly didn’t disappoint Saturday, as they cruised to a 41-0 win over the Commodores. People at the game got to witness history, as Vanderbilt’s Sarah Fuller became the first woman to play in a Power 5 college football game, making her only appearance …

Knee-Jerk Reactions: Missouri 17, South Carolina 10

It may have given Missouri fans some not-so-fun flashbacks, but it did not end poorly for the Tigers in the other Columbia Saturday night. You could argue the Tigers won the game with their start alone, as they put two early touchdowns on the board in the first half. But the second half opened the door for South Carolina to …

Knee-Jerk Reactions: Florida 41, Missouri 17

All those good vibes from wins over LSU and Kentucky were quickly doused for Missouri after a Halloween night in the Swamp. Both the performance on the field and the shoving and punching match between Missouri and Florida players heading into halftime did the job to bring all that Tiger momentum to a halt in a 41-17 loss Saturday. There …

Knee-Jerk Reactions: Missouri 20, Kentucky 10

Party like it’s 2014? Maybe so, if you’re a Missouri fan that has endured some pretty gut-wrenching losses at the hands of the Kentucky Wildcats in recent memory. After a memorable win over a powerhouse school, followed by an unexpected bye week, the Tigers could have very easily played the same way they have against a division opponent that usually …

Knee-Jerk Reactions: Missouri 45, LSU 41

Well, that was something. At least in recent years, it hasn’t been all that often that Missouri has found itself in the middle of a shootout like they had against No. 16 LSU, much less win one like that. With the way, Missouri’s offense had struggled early this year, I thought the only way the Tigers could knock off the …

Knee-Jerk Reactions: Tennessee 35, Missouri 12

A day that was filled with missed tackles, dropped passes and a few more mistakes in-between led to a not-so-uplifting performance for Missouri in week 2. The Tennessee Volunteers dictated the proceedings right from the opening drive, and that led to a 35-12 victory at Neyland Stadium to drop the Tigers to 0-2. Missouri fans had a lot to be …
