Recruiting DNA of Missouri’s Best Teams

+

Recruiting is important, but Missouri has to do it in a different way. What classes made up some of the best seasons in recent Tiger football history?

Missouri’s No. 1 ranking lasted just one week

Mizzou made it to No. 1 in the polls in 2007 but fell after just one week thanks to a Big 12 title game loss to Oklahoma.

The one game Mizzou absolutely, positively had to win

Missouri and Kansas played for the No. 1 ranking in 2007. You know who prevailed.

“Beat KU! Beat KU! Beat KU!”

Missouri’s 2007 win over KSU was defined by Jeremy Maclin and the game on the horizon

Deja vu against A&M

Before Mizzou could beat Kansas with a sack and safety in 2007, it had to do the same to Texas A&M

Mizzou’s 2007 win over ISU was costly

Missouri beat Iowa State handily in 2007 but lost its best player, Pig Brown, in the process.

Suddenly, a moral victory in Norman wasn’t enough

2

Missouri led Oklahoma after three quarters in Norman in 2007 but couldn’t overcome some Sooner Magic in the fourth.

Missouri’s 2007 win over Nebraska was just a perfect damn Saturday

Maybe the second best game day of the Pinkel era (behind 2010 Oklahoma).

Mizzou still had plenty to prove after ‘07 non-con play

The Tigers 4-0 heading into September, but defensive questions persisted.
