  1. If Barry Odom ends up failing at Missouri, blame player developmentRead the original story w/Photo

    1 hr ago | Rock M Nation

    With my SB Nation and stat hats on, I've been lucky enough to talk to quite a few coaches through the years and develop ongoing relationships with a few. One of the things that has resonated the most clearly with them has been my theory that team success always boils down to three things: player acquisition, player development, and player deployment.

    Don Faurot took four squads that started 1-2 and turned them into at least .500 teams. Can Barry Odom do the same for the 2017 Tigers? V-J Day was just about a month in the rearview mirror.

    7 hrs ago | Rock M Nation

    Missouri athletic director Jim Sterk spoke to both the Post-Dispatch and KC Star on Wednesday. I'll say this: he has the ability to deliver AD speak in what feels like a very candid, engaging manner.

  6. Auburn's defense will test your manhood. What does Missouri have to offer?Read the original story w/Photo

    Yesterday | Rock M Nation

    If I had to bet , we're going to see a pretty angry Missouri team on Saturday night against Auburn. We talk a lot about Big Things and Little Things, and while Missouri has been pretty bad at the Little Things of late , Saturday against Purdue was a Big Things loss, the first since last year's trip to Florida.

  7. Missouri's 2018 schedule features 11 teams that might be bowling in 2017Read the original story w/Photo

    Yesterday | Rock M Nation

    We're only entering the second act of the 2017 season, and with the way the first act ended, it's safe to say there are just a few things we don't know about Missouri's football team in 2018 - who the leaders will be, who the coach will be, etc. - but the SEC felt it a good time to release the 2018 season schedule on Tuesday all the same.

  8. The "you just laid an egg" checklist: Missouri held players-only meeting on MondayRead the original story w/Photo

    Yesterday | Rock M Nation

    One thing you can almost certainly count on following an incredible dud of a loss: a players-only meeting. They aren't guaranteed to spark any sort of turnaround, but I would say that having one is better than not having one.

    Yesterday | Rock M Nation

    The third episode of the 2017 season discusses Mizzou's 35-3 loss to the Purdue Boilermakers , focusing on the struggles of Josh Heupel's offense, Barry Odom's hot seat talk and where does Mizzou go from here? It's okay to lose games. It happens.

  10. Barry Odom's growth as a head coach hasn't really been any slower than Gary Pinkel'sRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday | Rock M Nation

    Last week, as we were still digesting the news of defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross' firing and weighing its possible effects - first impression of those effects, by the way: not great - we had a brief exchange in the Rock M Nation Slack room about how much turnover Barry Odom has dealt with in his first year-plus in charge, as compared to the rock-steady continuity Gary Pinkel dealt with at Mizzou. Odom is on his third defensive line coach in under two years and has now either lost or forced out his defensive coordinator and cornerbacks coach as well.

    Tuesday | Rock M Nation

    Drew threw the same interception against Purdue as he did against South Carolina - stared down J'Mon Moore on the sideline out . Micah Wilson got four snaps in relief of Drew Lock but didn't actually get to do anything with them.

  12. Missouri vs. Purdue: Bad. Just Bad.Read the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday | Rock M Nation

    If you followed along with my work in this space last year, you know that I endeavored to provide snap counts for every Missouri player for every offensive and defensive snap that counted during the season. If you were not...well, I just explained what this is in the last graf.

  13. Barry Odom: "You're never as good, never as bad as it seems."...Read the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday | Rock M Nation

    When you're frustrated with or unsure about a coach, you can basically turn your head just right so that you're skeptical about everything he/she says. Everything is cause for alarm, everything is a sign they don't know what they're talking about, etc.

    Monday | Rock M Nation

    Well, that sucked. I am lucky enough to have several friends who are fans of a range of schools and also dedicated college football junkies and when talking with them prior to the game on Saturday, I admitted I was not optimistic.

  15. Corey Fatony gets a shoutout from Golf.comRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Sep 18 | Rock M Nation

    Yes, it was probably poor form for Missouri punter Corey Fatony to break out a celebration for a punt well done with his team down 35-3 in the second half. No, he probably shouldn't have done it.

  16. For formality's sake, here are the advanced stats from Mizzou-PurdueRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Sep 18 | Rock M Nation

    As a formality, below we'll walk through what the stats can tell us about Missouri's last game - it's something we've been doing for going on 10 years here, and it's something we'll continue to do. As a formality, I'll also mention that Missouri's stat profile has been updated and that - SURPRISE! - the Tigers' odds of making a bowl went from solid to horrid last Saturday.

  17. Missouri's winning culture has vanishedRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Sep 18 | Rock M Nation

    As we attempt to move on from the compete and utter debacle that was Saturday afternoon at Faurot Field, some semi-scattered thoughts: I know that from a fan perspective , it's over - Barry Odom's already fired, Les Miles has already been hired and fired, and we're like 900 miles down the road. It doesn't quite work that way, though.

    Monday Sep 18 | Rock M Nation

    We'll get to the bad stuff later in the day. When your football team looks as woefully unprepared as Missouri's did on Saturday, there's no choice but to talk about it.

    Sunday Sep 17 | Rock M Nation

    According to the Mizzou historian Tom Orf, that touchdown gives Maclin the most scored by any Mizzou Tiger in the NFL. In week 1, Maclin proved he still can still take it to the house scoring on this 46 yard slant vs the Bengals :
