Nick Bolton Uses Mic Time to Shout Out Mizzou

Former Mizzou defensive linebacker Nick Bolton has made a splash in the NFL recently, capped off by his recent team victory with the Kansas City Chiefs in Superbowl LVII.

His individual play has achieved milestones as well, becoming the first Missouri Tiger to ever score a touchdown in the Superbowl. Prior to this, former Mizzou defender Mike Jones was able to secure the game-winning tackle in the 2000 Superbowl for the St. Louis Rams, the most notible achievement.

But during the Superbowl parade celebration in Kansas City, Bolton gave a nod of respect to his alma matter.

After a couple of people in the crowd were here yelling “M-I-Z,” Bolton asks the crowd, “Can I get a big ol’ ‘M-I-Z?'” The crowd overwhelmingly replies with a “Z-O-U.”


Ryan Wingo Will Have to Choose Mizzou Over Alabama

The Missouri Tigers football team will have to overcome a major obstacle shoud they want to have any chance at a respectible 2024 recruiting class.

Five-star sensation Ryan Wingo out of St. Louis has a 37% “FanFutureCast” on of going to Mizzou. But it also lists medium interest and no visits for the Alabama Crimson Tide. That’s all changed.

Wingo himself confirmed the offer recently, and a recruiting visit has reportedly been confirmed as well.

The number of offers for the star wide receiver sits at 44, but this latest push by Alabama is going to be a difficult challenge to overcome for Coach Eli Drinkwitz and his staff.

WR Damon Hazelton Announces Transfer to Mizzou From Virginia Tech

There’s plenty to be excited about on the offensive side of the ball for coach Eliah Drinkwitz as of late, and especially after a big announcement on Saturday afternoon.

Virginia Tech Hokies wide receiver Damon Hazelton took to Twitter and announced he was going to be making a change.

This will be a great addition, as Hazelton will bring three years of consistent experience to the table. Certainly a working part for the Hokies, he will now help the Tigers in their quest for another SEC East division championship.

Worst Hit of the Year: Travis Sailo Tries to Hurt Mizzou’s Kelly Bryant

In one of the worst displays of sportsmanship seen in college football this year, Troy Trojan senior defensive tackle Travis Sailo went for Mizzou quarterback Kelly Bryant’s left leg from behind in Saturday’s game.

Making matters worse, Sailo clearly hold on to his leg and follows through with the very illegal move. He returns to the sideline to laugh about it with his teammates.

The only intention a player has when making such a move, is to hurt the player he’s trying to tackle.

Some fans pointed out that Sailo’s Twitter account currently accepts Direct Messages without him following you, which isn’t likely to last long after the coward gets to his phone.

The Mizzou Report will keep you updated on reaction and coming disciplinary that will be taken against Sailo.

What’s Happened to Mizzou and Will They Recover

So, let’s no try to get cute on this thing all of a sudden. It’s not good.

Mizzou football in its freshman season under former player Barry Odom, has turned up a complete dud of a season in a league division that’s already judged by many to be on the level of Mountain West teams.

If you look at what the team is putting together on the field, it’s a shameful offense of limited leadership and no consistency, coupled with a defense that hasn’t lived up to its potential. Serious injuries have also put a damper on longer short-term hopes of some kind of revival.

Coaching is certainly under question, but only one season in it’s hard to say he’s under fire or anything like that. While Odom does have his share of those who disapprove in how he’s done so far, the overall consensus is that he needs another year or two to show what he can do.

I’m not going to get as political about this as you might think and blame things on the happening from last November, but that obviously didn’t help matters. The team just isn’t very good.

Drew Lock has absolutely no pocket presence. He’s quick to hurry and make a bad decision if defenders can just get close to him. Tackling has become a joke on the other side of the ball, and with the emotional leader Michael Scherer out for the rest of the way, look for someone to hopefully step up and take charge.

Another reason that this team isn’t as successful is that they aren’t as close. Even before their unexpected SEC success in 2013, the Tiger football team had a sense of togetherness and family that wasn’t artificial, and it was helping them win games. It started with Gary Pinkel, but Odom won’t have a problem getting these guys together, once he gets nestled into place.

The answer is time, Mizzou needs it to rebuild. These are ugly words to some, that we will have to hear for some time before we begin to see winning ways again. Time will have to be invested in ideas, the ideas will have to be acted on and then hopefully the ideas pan out into things that make Tiger football a winner again.

BREAKING: Texas Longhorns 2005 National Championship Trophy Shattered

Mizzou Report has obtained exclusive information about the most prized trophy in the Texas Longhorns’ illustrious case, their 2005 BCS National Championship trophy.

Former Longhorns coach Mack Brown, musician Jack Ingram and actor Matthew McConaughey run a yearly fundraiser in Austin, Texas for their group MJ&M.

But during this past spring, an MJ&M event turned into a horror situation for Texas officials. At the request of Longhorn players, the 2005 championship trophy was brought to the event in order to sell photo opportunities to donors.

After photos had concluded, the trophy was removed from the event floor. It was then taken to the back-of-house area, where it was on guard by an NCAA official.

At some point after a brief time in the back, the glass football that adorned the top of the trophy fell and shattered on the ground.

Employees of the venue hosting the event were forced to sign a gag order that they would never talk about the incident.

It’s not known at this time exactly how the trophy was knocked over, or who may have done it. Mizzou Report can now confirm that it was not McConaughey who may have broke the trophy, because he was on stage at the time of the accident.

Texas used to clean up on Saturdays when they played Mizzou in the Big 12 Conference, but as the toxic league spirals toward foreclosure, it’s only fitting that news of their greatest achievement over the last several decades has gone kablooey all over the floor.

Drew Lock Clearly Not the Answer for Mizzou Football

You can’t start out your defense with, “It wasn’t pretty, but,” and then transition into supplying all the excuses you can think of to support Drew Lock. It doesn’t work anymore.

This wouldn’t be an issue, except you can see the clouds gathering if you have an eye on the liberal barometer. The same cast of disconnected kids with a degree who write about Mizzou football, seem to all be rushing to Lock’s defense even before the game was half over.

The guy who likes to go by Oscer Gamble from Rock M Nation couldn’t be a more mindless dingleberry in his analysis; no particular data point provided, “Drew Lock is not the problem.” Really? Because the way you say it makes me think you’re already aware that he is the problem.

Same thing from Matt Michaels of KTGR when he said, “Can’t see Lock grading out better than Zanders unless you use a curve.” Curve what?! Zanders hardly even had an opportunity to throw the ball! I mean seriously, are you being paid for what to say? That is unfortunately a serious question.

This is just the tip of the problem now for Mizzou. The offense—although I am judging from the first game—has become completely comfortable with the same Larry Smith-style screens that got him fired.

If that wasn’t bad enough, every fan’s worst nightmare was revealed when Ish Witter got somewhere in the area of ten thousand carries. Sitting in the visitors section of Milan-Puskar Stadium, I heard many fans plead multiple times, “Please don’t hand it to Witter again,” only to be sitting with their hands over their face seconds later.

Most people are trying really hard to church everything up. But this Missouri team (not just the offense) is a huge turd that no one will be able to polish…at least on its current track. Alex Ross was “meh” at best behind an awful offensive line. Chris Black looked good, but his potential wasn’t realized since offensive strategy chose to focus on being the 1999 team.

Essentially, what happened to Missouri was the absolute worst-case scenario. Yet, because of professional persuasion, everything is allegedly going to be just fine…if Lock is the quarterback and people stop realizing he is the problem.

In the author’s opinion, the one-sided onslaught from those named, as well as anyone who works under Joe Walljasper at the Columbia Daily Tribune, has been the problem since the feminist-led protests on campus. (Whole other piece coming out on this subject soon, you won’t want to miss.)

So where does Mizzou go from here? Barry Odom coached a very tough game against a good team. He made decisions like attempting to score at the end of the half, which was refreshing. But his product on the field was 100% shameful, there’s no other way to put it.

Mizzou is going to have to find an offensive identity, and fast. I understand that the players have to play within themselves and their abilities, but if being an FBS player in the SEC means that you’re cool with just bubble screening and Ish Wittering your opponent to death, then someone turn on the Sun Belt or something.

In any event, I’m sure the normal cast of clowns will dig deep to try and defend Lock to the death, but I’ve been talking about how Marvin Zanders needs to be the other guy since he arrived on campus. Now it’s clear that he needs to be the primary guy, but his haters will help the rest of the SEC.

FOX Loses Grip With Reality on Odom Gun Rule

In yet another sad attempt by the ‘highly-trained in liberal tactics’ press, Lindsey Foltin of FOX–among others–have decided to report on Mizzou head coach Barry Odom’s reiteration of a rule that has been standard for seasons, be used as a potential fulcrum point of social division and claims of injustice.

Let’s get something straight; I believe in gun ownership. No surprise there. But why do people own guns? Why should people be allowed to own guns? It is to protect their families and themselves from immediate and personal danger. There is no Mizzou student-athlete who should ever–at this juncture in their lives–be putting themselves in a situation where they would need to use a gun to protect themselves.

Once you have moved on to a point in life where football is not your primary focus and you are not under the watchful eye of the highly structured NCAA system, then yes, I can see you owning a gun.

But the point here now isn’t at all the gun issue, it’s yet again someone on Mizzou’s campus having to defend themselves because of the political nonsense sprinkled in. And you’d think the local press would have a backbone? Not when the whole lineup of clowns that the Tribune and Missourian offer might as well have come out of a Melissa Click class.

The fact is that former coach Gary Pinkel had this rule in place as well, and it makes sense. But don’t look for that to stop the easily-programmed and sent-into-rage anti-gun crowd of writers, who are now undoubtedly foaming at the mouth to pound away at a social issue they they feel they will get a feather in the cap for writing about. So much for journalism.

Best of luck to you this season, Coach Odom. We’ll be pulling for you.

Did J’den Cox Just Announce He’ll Play Football for Mizzou?

Mizzou senior wrestling star and bronze-medal Olympian J’den Cox was met in Columbia by a mob of fans as he returned, which moved to campus where there was a ‘welcome home’ themed event and an autograph session.

Cox has been blown away and humbled by the media attention, as well as the response from his hometown of Columbia, Mo. in cheering him on during his time competing in Rio. But it was Cox that blew away those in attendance with what he said.

“The new plan is to play football for the University of Missouri after I get done with wrestling here for a year,” Cox told a room of spectators and journalists that included ABC17’s Andrew Kauffman.

“The rule here is you can play a sport for four years, and then your fifth year, you can go and play another one.”

Cox’s explanation strongly indicates that he has had some degree of planning and communication about such a move, but those affiliated with the team didn’t have any immediate reaction.

You can bet fan support for Cox’s decision would be strong as he was an exceptional linebacker for the in-town Hickman Kewpies. His entrance right when standout senior Michael Scherer would be departing the program, might be just what the Tiger team needs on the second layer.

You can guarantee that this story is just getting rolling. Stay close to the Mizzou Report for updates into a potential roster spot for Cox.
