Well, if the Kansas City media is right, Mizzou will finish dead last in the SEC, regret leaving the Big 12/10, lose every recruiting tie in KS and MO, fall way behind in recruiting because they don’t cheat and miss a bowl game for the first time in 7 years…
However, no matter how bad Kevin Kietzman and Bob “Boner” Fescoe says Mizzou is going to be, they will still look better than everyone else in the greatest football conference in the world. Bleacher Report awarded Mizzou’s decision to throw away tradition and history and modify and modernize their uniforms.
As a life-long Mizzou fan, I was kind of on the fence when it came to this decision. It wasn’t until I actually got to see what these uniforms were going to look like that I gave a thumbs up to the change. At first, I was a little nervous that we would go all Oregon on it and look like we were wearing space suits or something out of Mutant League Football on Sega (If you don’t know what I’m talking about with this reference, youtube it…one of the greatest football games on Sega…EVER). Gary Pinkel brought up the best point of anyone. It’s doesn’t really matter what the Alumni thinks about the uniforms. They can’t run a the 40 yard dash in 4.3 seconds or bench press 450 lbs. One of the biggest recruiting tools teams have is the uniform. In order to keep up with the greatest teams in college football, they have to make a splash with potential recruits. That’s one of the first things recruits look at…”What kind of sweet looking stuff do I get?”
So, we may not win the SEC, but at least we will look good losing.
