Time to disrupt out your best Mizzou Gold, Tiger fans, cuz there’s a Gold Thrill tonight. Certain, the sporting activity is later (8pm start, eeek), nevertheless it’ll be cost it.
The Missouri Tigers have a possibility to obtain some sweet, sweet vengeance tonight. Must you remember (i.e. if you take place to risk to recall), the Tigers saw Bud Walton a variety of weeks in the past as well as had actually remained in a placement to obtain a 17-point lead early within the sporting activity, after which ol’ Muss as well as his whining started, as well as his team started striking photos, as well as the Tigers…. …. lost. Nonetheless enough regarding that.
Brandon’s sneak peek for the rematch will most likely be out later on right this minute, so this will most likely be momentary. Chums, the Muss Bus is bending off the road as well as I, for one, don’t hate to see it. The Hogs haven’t received a sport since beating our truthful Tigers, dropping by 13 to no. 22 Auburn (Arky was no. 13 on the time), and by 15 to no. 4 Alabama (Arky was no. 15 on the time). After which got here my favourite loss. The Vanderbilt Commodores (1-2 within the SEC on the time, with a win over South Carolina) beat the doorways proper off Arkansas on their bizarre little house courtroom by 15 factors.
Y’all, the Razorbacks employees was apparently so disrespected by their loss to Stack (a G-League teaching legend, thoughts you) and the ‘Dores on Saturday that they identical to… left? Discuss poor f’ing sportsmanship.
So issues don’t go your means so that you’re identical to, “NO I WILL NOT SHAKE YOUR HANDS BECAUSE THIS IS NOTTTTTTTT FAIRRRRR, DADDY!!!!”
who else has misplaced a bunch lately and nonetheless carries themselves like GROWN UPS? Dennis Gates & Co.
