T-C-U BETTER BELIEVE IT

#3 TCU took on #5 LSU this weekend and let everyone know that the Horned Frogs are legit. It was a defensive struggle but TCU was able to come out on top 13-10.

THE BUC STOPS HERE

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn't give Christian Skaggs any break Sunday, sacking the QB 6 times. The offense did their part behind QB Taylor Heiden and rookie RB DeNorris Jackson and came away with a 28-21 win.

DREAM KILLERS?

A top 15 matchup between the #11 Toledo Rockets and #15 Florida Gators ended in heartbreak for the Rockets. Florida managed to pull out the 25-22 win on the road. Anyone doubting either team was put on notice.

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN

The Green Bay Packers have raced to a 5-0 start after beating the 2-2 Seattle Seahawks. This game was very banner worthy which is why it is on here. I wonder if anyone can "catch" the Green Bay Packers, or maybe "intercept" them? No no, definitely catch.

    A Bad Start

    Lockerroom Unrest in Columbia

     

    COLUMBIA, MO - Things haven’t gone quite according to plan on Faurot Field this season. After making a bowl game for 4 straight seasons, including a playoff appearance, SEC championship game appearance, and producing a Heisman winner, the Missouri Tigers have started with a 2-4 record. It’s the worst starting record since the team operated without a coach in 2015.

    Coach vtgorilla is noticeably upset when discussing the team’s lack of success this season. “We’re just not meeting our goals for the season. The team was supposed to be trending up.”

     

    He’s of course referring to the team’s record the past 2 seasons. The Tigers went 6-6 in 2018, following the graduation of Heisman winner Aaron Shea. Then in 2019, they produced a 7-5 regular season record.

     

    “It’s not from lack of leadership. Tucker Dowden has been spectacular this season, but clearly he can’t do it himself,” said Coach vtgorilla.

    Tucker Dowden is currently leading SEC Quarterbacks in total yards and total touchdowns. However, the defense has struggled this season, and Tucker's spectacular performance can't seem to outpace the number of points the defense is giving up.

     

    Coach had some things to say about the defense as well. “Well, we knew we were missing some key pieces going into this season, but we were hoping our skill positions could compensate. We’ve definitely been forced to test some unconventional strategies on the d-line. The problems really stem from poor recruiting when there wasn’t a coach and while I got to know all the high school coaches in our recruiting ground 3-4 seasons ago.”

     

    Tucker Dowden spoke to the media about the team’s performance as well, though he was unavailable to answer followup questions.

     

    “We set our sights on competing for the SEC East this season. It really seemed like a possibility. It’s a tough division, but we thought we’d be right in there. It’s a real wake up call to be 2-4 halfway through our season. We’re going to have to fight real hard just to make a bowl game.”

     

    Looking at Missouri’s remaining schedule, it’s tough to pick out 4 obvious games that the Tigers will win to become bowl eligible. The brutal remainder of the schedule is filled with SEC opponents:

     

    @ Kentucky

    Vs. South Carolina

    @ Vanderbilt

    Vs. Tennessee

    @ Georgia

    @ Arkansas
