Missouri: The wild card in the SEC East?

The Missouri Tigers would have been the talk of the SEC and possibly the nation last season if not for the miraculous turnaround of the Auburn Tigers. Missouri went from fifth place in the SEC East in its debut season, and just two conference wins, to winning the East and going 12-2. Was 2013 the perfect storm for success for Missouri? Can the Tigers sustain their success in 2014...

Video: Missouri Tight Ends Do The “Haka” Dance, Led By Redshirt Freshman Jason Reese

Missouri tight end Jason Reese is from Euless, Texas and Trinity High School, and apparently one of their traditions was doing the “Haka,” a war dance that comes from the Māori people of New Zealand, and is famously performed as a pregame ritual by New Zealand’s national rugby team. Reese taught the dance to his tight end group at Missouri today, and we really hope this...

Mizzou LB takes snap to groin, brother posts footage to Vine

The Missouri Tigers are still working out the kinks before their Aug. 30 opener vs. South Dakota. Just ask Evan Boehm, who learned that the hard way on Day 5 of fall practice. The unsuspecting offensive lineman fell victim to a rather painful snap miscue at Tigers practice, and lucky for those of us on the internet looking for a cheap laugh, his brother did his fraternal duty and...

Missouri Tigers Offensive Lineman Takes Football To the Nuts

This is easily the funniest nut shot I’ve ever seen. Missouri Tigers offensive lineman Evan Boehm was standing in a real bad spot during practice. One of the assistants even tried to get him to move before the snap so he could catch the ball, but it was too late. Utterly hysterical.

Video: Missouri’s Evan Boehm Unsuspectingly Nailed In The Crotch With A Football

Missouri junior offensive lineman Evan Boehm is not used to catching the ball behind center – he’s usually on the line, ready to block for the players behind him. Never was that more apparent than after watching him get hit in the crotch on a snap during Tigers practice. Check out this hilarious Vine, which was posted (we believe) by his brother, Tyler. For whatever reason...

SEC Countdown: No. 6 Missouri

But try telling that to the Missouri faithful who had to endure a full season in the highly competitive SEC (2012) before reaching the conference championship game in 2013 -- all thanks to Pinkel and a Tigers team full of unheralded recruits-turned-college stars.

Mizzou: Do Tigers need to offer more scholarships to higher caliber recruits?

During his time in Columbia, Gary Pinkel has had a plan in place when it comes to recruiting.  He picks and chooses his battles for the big names, the four and five star recruits, and then does an unbelievable job of scouting players who may be slightly undersized or too slow to receive such notoriety. Then, Pinkel develops them, and he develops them well, as Mizzou has had numerous...

Maty Football? Missouri's Mauk steps confidently into starting role
