Mizzou Tigers Vs Alabama Crimson Tide

The Crimson Tide will play its lone October home game this Saturday against their SEC East foe Missouri for Homecoming.  The Tigers faced Bama only once during the regular season since moving from the Big 12 to the SEC in 2011.  The only other time these two clashed was in 2014 in the SEC Championship Game and lost to Bama 42-13.

According to Rock M Nation, the official site of the Mizzou Tigers, there’s a little problem with their star QB Drew Lock. He hasn’t thrown a TD pass since Week 3 against Purdue.

Some are pointing fingers at Offensive Coordinator Derek Dooley. The beef against Dooley is the Tigers’ offense lacks rhythm. Lock has nowhere to throw more often than not and when he does have an open receiver, he’s missing them more often than Mizzou fans are used to seeing.  Dooley needs to step up his game.
Bama’s defensive back Deionte Thompson wasn’t happy with the results of their win over the Bacon Bits of Arkansas last week saying, “We did not play to Alabama’s standard today.”

The Tide will have a chance to improve against Mizzou.  There were a couple of times in last week’s game that Coach Saban used a formation that had Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts on the field at the same time during the first half and the Bama fans went bonkers.  Coach said he has plans to use it more saying, “I think because of these two guys’ skill sets it could present some problems for defensive teams.”

Hoo boy!  That should scare the beejeebers out their opponents.

Dominant against bad teams and not good enough against decent teams, the Tigers are struggling. They’ve failed to beat any other opponent with a winning record.  Just look at Mizzou’s Truman Tiger: 
And…since it’s Homecoming, they’re bringing back one of the greatest traditions in college football. During the fourth quarter, “Dixieland Delight” will be added to the stadium playlist.  Traditions matter in football.  It’s about time this one was back to stay.
