A new era has begun in Columbia and Mizzou Tiger football. Not only did one of the best
quarterbacks in school history and the nation graduate, but so did a style of offense. Mizzou no longer runs the spread offense that was the key to success for the Tigers for the past few years. With new quarterback, James Franklin, being more of a runner than passer the offensive scheme had to and has changed. Everyone was interested to see how this would work out going into Saturday’s game against Miami of Ohio. MU has received a lot of publicity going into the game as being a very good team with numerous helpful returners and the possibility of even being better than most think. Did the Tiger’s live up to this bit of hype and prove they could change the offense back to the old Brad Smith days? I would have to say absolutely not. The passing game seems rather nonexistent and even the run wasn’t too impressive. Franklin threw for 129 yards and gained 72 on the ground. This was not exactly what was expected out of Columbia. My prediction is a very long season once Big 12 play starts. Hopefully I am wrong, but Franklin and the Tigers definitely have some proving to do for fans and media because a 17-6 victory over a slightly better than mediocre program isn’t going to cut it.
