1) Aldon Smith recently out. Best D player at leastand maybe their bestplayer. Gives our OL a bit more of a chance to step up. 2) Derrick Washington out. Backed up by essentially 4 guys that found their footing last week against Miami (OH) for 200+ yards but Miami is the 33rd ranked rush defense. We are 7th. 3) Their passing game is ranked 91st and our pass D is ranked 12th I got the stats here. maybe their full of it...http://www.footballoutsiders.com/ So the question is can we score. And I think we can. This team is playing better than it has in a long time. I'm not trying to get ahead of myself but we are playing better than we have, I think that we can all agree to that. This team would beat the hell out of last seasons team and laugh about it. Missouri D is ranked 29th over all. 53rd in Rushing D and 13th in passing D. (Same place for the stats.). Our O ranks horribly (101 overall, 114 rushing and 88 in passing) but that includes the CSU game, the Cal game and the first half of Hawaii. I don't know how to do it but I have to figure that if ranked our last game and a half against everyone else it would show much better. So if these guys can keep some mo. If the can work hard. If they can have confidence. I think we can play Mizz tough. Beat them? Who knows but I got a little faith going here. Anyone else? aaaaaand let the pile-on begin.
