(Missouri Football App) -- Well, dreamers gotta have something to shoot for right? But as the rain comes down, and the thunder rings out, the Tigers have to be hoping it never lets up.
Bama is absolutely too much. There's no facet of their game that even has a weakness, much less something Mizzou can exploit. The Tigers have dropped a couple big passes, but in the end it wouldn't have mattered much this half.
At the postponement, Missouri hasn't sniffed the redzone, much less the end zone. But who expected anything else?
Reportedly Coach Pinkel went off in the locker room, saying "you're making them look like a bunch of F*****g All-Americans!" Sorry coach, but… they are. They are one of the most dominant teams in recent years, if not the last decade.
Alabama is a remorseless winning machine. They are a beast craving victory, and will stop at nothing to satiate their hunger. Be mad that Missouri is dropping passes. Be mad we are playing scared. Don't be bad that Bama looks like the best team in the country. They have backups that ran for 6,500 yards in high school. Frankly, if we keep this under 50 it should be a moral victory.
Inspire some courage. Challenge your players to score. But don't pretend they aren't up against the toughest challenge they'll probably ever face on the football field.
