As with most historical movies, facts were altered for the sake of the story. One of the most notable changes: Platte City, and thus the Red Crown incident, was placed in Iowa, not Missouri.

Funny Poser, you said that last year as well... your smack is sounding like a broken record. With all this living in the past that you do? Do you still go to the Colts message boards and talk smack about the last 3 playoff ass whipping and embarrasements we have received from them?

So all of this talk from you got me wondering, Where does MU rank on ESPN's Title Town USA list? Will they ever be featured? I went and looked, sure enough, they werent even mentioned. http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/titletown/news/story?id=3339921

So here is what a title town page looks like. http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/titletown/news/story?id=3459051

Or he could be about as good as Harrison Beck or dare I say it Freeman ;)
Both of which were overly hyped by Rivals and Scout. Beck couldn't beat out Zac Taylor or his backups and took his ball to NC State where he's still riding the pine. And Freeman while decent hasn't lived up to all the hype either. According to Rivals ect. ect. Huskers have all world talent on both sides of the ball but Callahan couldn't do shit with them. 95% of those guys are still there. There's some very good players on both sides of the ball and if Pelini can coach it out of them whereas Callahan couldn't coach himself out of a paper bag the Huskers will make some noise this year. Osborne made the right hire with Pelini. Just wish Osborne was in charge back in 04. Pedersen alone set the program back 4 years. Nuthooks for that asshole.

Luckily for us, our coach actually knows a thing or two about QBs. After all, he's coached at least five to the NFL: Chris Chandler, Mark Brunell, Hugh Millen, Billy Joe Hobert, and Brad Smith.

QBs bust all the time, but I'm extremely confident that one of Gabbert or Dalton will be an adequate replacement for Daniel once he graduates. For the upcoming season, former Elite 11 QB Chase Patton serves as one hell of a backup.

95 percent of the talent is not still there. Not quite.

There still is a lot of talent in the 07 class (and a few big guys in the 08 class, Will "Call me Mike Mamula" Compton, and Baker Steinkuhler, who is a beast), but the 04, 05 and 06 classes have seen the departure of most of the guys who helped Nebraska garner huge star rankings. A lot of them were JUCOs; some of them washed out.

So Nebraska will be really pumped up for Mizzou, huh? Well, they were really pumped up for USC last year, and we saw what happened. That team has severe problems (crappy wideouts, OL that will be asked to run block more but was bad at it last season, no depth or experience at LB, weak DL that can't rush the passer). Pardon me if I'm not quivering in my boots.

And as for Missouri post Daniel/QB development... Gabbert, Dalton and the second 09 commit, Ashton Glaser, provide enough talent and numbers to feel confident at least one will be a good (if not Daniel-level) QB. Glaser was No. 2 on their board at the time of his commitment, so the staff is pretty high on him.

Oh, and as for kU... it will all come down to line play for the beakers.

The two new tackles better get up to speed quickly; Darton was pathetic in the action I saw him (ISU, couple of other blowouts) and Spikes has no experience at all. South Florida, Oklahoma, Texas and Missouri all have good enough defensive fronts to make kU pay if its tackle play isn't there.

As for the defensive line... Missouri was the only good, passing-oriented offense kU really faced last year (OSU is a running team) and kU's defensive line helped Daniel make his Heisman tape. Larson and Brorsen are huge liabilities as pass rushers, and McClinton's inside push will be missed. Missouri, Texas, Texas Tech and Oklahoma all throw the ball well enough to really make kU pay for its anemic pass rush.

If those two things don't shape up, kU would be lucky to get to 8-4...

It's funny that ku fans think this, you are probably the 3rd one that has said this in the thread. My response is the same now as it was before - MU has been to bowl games in 4 of the past 5 seasons, 3 straight, and have been better in each of the last 3 years. That's amazing considering the state of the program when he came on board.

Okay, so are you going to base your entire argument on Smith, and just ignore the others I mentioned? Are you also going to ignore Daniel's career up to this point? Pinkel has sent QB after QB after QB to the NFL - at some point even a moron like you would realize that's a trend. But if it makes you feel better to think the beatings will end after Daniel leaves this season, be my guest. :D

I was in KC up until last August, so I definitely was not detached from the Mizzou fan base. Were people frustrated?

I am a proud graduate of the University of Kansas. It has served me very well. I'm not sure how others on this board are affiliated with "their schools" to be honest. Sports are fun, but it's not the why I attended KU. I didn't go to KU because they had a killer football/basketball/swimming team. I went there because they have a great aerospace engineering program. I'll talk smack on occasion, but it's just for fun. My concern about a 4-8 team or 11-1 team is ancillary and really not important in the big scheme of things. I don't hang my hat on the KU athletic department; I hang my hat on the KU/KSU (yeah, KSU) students who intern for our company. These schools turn out some great kids who are really interested in science/math/physics. That's a rarity nowadays.

The offenses are extremely similar, and you'd know that if you were paying attention.

kU runs a lot of the same routes, from a lot of the same formations. The strategy in the passing game is very similar. Missouri uses wider splits, but even the blocking schemes are close to one another.

Oklahoma "exposed" Mizzou's OL because it the Sooners are loaded with kick-ass defensive linemen. It had nothing to do with the line splits. Illinois' line might be close to them on talent level, but Oklahoma had one of the two-three best d-lines in college football last year, and it will be up there again in 2008.

But don't worry, you'll find out on Oct. 18th how good Auston English, DeMarcus Granger, etc. are. Missouri's defensive line had great success against kU's offensive line. Oklahoma's will make mincemeat of it.

however, they're quickly realizing that missouri is far superior this year and will have the recruitment edge on them next year... missouri is the new Big 12 North power, and it will remain that way.

missouri produces high school football talent. kansas does not. and the days of top missouri talent leaving for nebraska are over.

nearly every starter (with the exception of daniel) of the vaunted offense last year was in-state talent. this year's spring roster depth chart had 7/11 starters listed from missouri...

I think what he's saying is that we're a bit premature in declaring ourselves Kings of the North, and that Nebraska may have something to say about it.

While I (obviously) have zero respect for Kansas, I don't expect Nebraska to stay down for long. Opening the conference schedule against them in Lincoln can certainly not be considered a guaranteed win. They'll have had months to think about their epic suckage last year, and we'll be their first true chance to atone.

very true... and bo pelini was an awesome hire... but i just don't see top offensive recruits in the midwest choosing nebraska over missouri anymore..

i have a lot of respect for the blackshirts.. but they've left the door open over the last few years for someone to step up and be a new power. missouri has their foot firmly in that door...

if nebraska rises again (like i assume they will), they won't be able to bully everybody in the north around anymore.

remember that missouri can rest their hat on top in-state recruits now... nebraska can't. and with rapidly growing recruitment in texas, i don't think i'm embarrassing myself when i say that missouri is turning into an elite program..

This is just silly from more angles than I care to count. First of all, KU's season took most KU fans by as much suprise as it did the rest of the nation. I think most KU fans think we can be competitive now, as opposed to a doormat program with a "nice" season every once and a while. Powerhouses are programs with lots of tradition, lots of money, and lots of homegrown prospects in talent rich areas. So, I think you are creating a bit of a stawman and then attributing it to "kansas fans". How about you don't think for KU fans, we certainly don't want to for you. Feel free to quote KU fans, but please don't speak for us in some general homogenous sense.

however, they're quickly realizing that missouri is far superior this year and will have the recruitment edge on them next year... missouri is the new Big 12 North power, and it will remain that way.

Yes, because that's what we KU fans do, obsess on the "superiority" of Mizzery. I don't know if you realize this, but we don't recruit Missouri hard for prospects. I mean sure, if a top prospect makes it known he likes the program, I'm sure we'll go after him. But, it looks like Mangino's pattern has been in-state/Oklahoma/Texas for the bulk of their work. All your talk reminds me of the "Decade of Dominance" from K-State. At least they won a Big 12 championship. So, why don't you win "something" before you talk about your "staying power". I'm not blind, Mizzou has a good looking team, but come on.......

missouri produces high school football talent. kansas does not. and the days of top missouri talent leaving for nebraska are over.

Once again, you are assuming Missouri was our top priority. You are assuming every boy who grows up in Missouri wants to stay there. You are assuming that you will win every bowl game you go to. Admire your enthusiasm, but please, you are placing an importance in an area that really isn't a priority. Once Nebraska gets back, they'll command their share. If KU keeps winning, they'll command their's as well. Same for Colorado. If Missouri goes out and wins a national championship, then your crowing will have some more teeth to it, until then, as was pointed out earlier, you're embarrasing yourself...and you don't realise it.

nearly every starter (with the exception of daniel) of the vaunted offense last year was in-state talent. this year's spring roster depth chart had 7/11 starters listed from missouri...

With the exception of Daniel! I hate to break it to you, but QB's are what makes college offenses go. If you got a special one, you're going to win a lot of games. Missouri produces talent, there's no question. But if Illinois continues to do well, Missouri won't keep "everybody".

we're talking about producing guys like Martin Rucker, Will Franklin, Tony Temple, Chase Coffman, Jeremy Maclin, William Moore.

kansas has zero in-state talent

What do you mean? Like ever? Heard of Barry Sanders? He was pretty good. Look, I'm with ya on the whole Kansas athletics scene, the governing body there is just atrocious and behind the times. But zero? With two instituions in the state? I know you are proud to be a Missourian an all, but come on, there's more talent in states like Texas and Florida and California that even with all the schools in that state, there still overflowing. There's so many things that can happen, a freak injury to a star player, a bad string of losses in bowl games, and all of a sudden your established North power doesn't seem so strong.

So, by all means, talk up your home grown superheroes, I'm enjoying all the boasting. Because when November rolls around all the pressure is going to be on the Missouri side, in a neutral field, with a hated rival bent on revenge for their only loss last season. If that team doesn't pull through, the psychological damage will be immense. The "presence" that some force hates Missouri and will always hand them crushing defeats will build, and all your prize home grown talent will run from the stench of it. :#

Oklahoma? Nebraska? Kansas? Iowa? Colorado?

Missouri is out-producing all of them right now, and now they have an edge in recruitment over all those other big 12 schools...

a few years ago, five-star quarterback recruit Josh Freeman (from Missouri) chose K-State over Missouri... this year, five-star quarterback recruit Blaine Gabbert (from Missouri) chooses Missouri over virtually every other school in the north.

That may be so, a home institution should have the advantage. But that's no reason why every major recruit in Missouri is going to pick the Tigers. Maybe he wants to play in the SEC of Big 10, you got states bordering yours that can accomodate that. I'm not tap dancing around anything, Missouri has talent, but that doesn't guarantee anything. Coaches recruit their system, kids understand what sytem benfits them the best. If (hypothetically) the top pro style QB resides in Missouri, but isn't a fit for the Tiger's spread attack, you're probably not going to get him. If your point was about high schools producing talent, why start it off with what KU fans supposedly "think"? KU has always had to recruit nationally in basketball, and I'm sure they'll pursue a similar path with football (probably more regionally than nationally). As long as there's enough talent to go around, I just don't think its going to make quite the impact you think it is. It might, but I certainly wouldn't list it as the reason Mizzou is the new North power for years to come.

HolyHandgernade
07-23-2008, 04:03 AM

No, no, it certainly won't. I don't watch alot of high school football, and although I know services that do with their star rankings have their fans as well as detractors, I really have no other standard to go by. So I was curious about the talent in the two states according to Rivals. They list a top 30 for MO and top 15 for KS, so we already have an impression that there are more division one athletes in MO.

MO has three 4* recruits. MU got #2, Ill got #3, and #1 is still undecided
MO has 12 3* recruits. MU got eight of those (KU got the #11 recruit)
The rest are 2*, but I'll stop there since KS only has a top 15

KS has one 5* recruit (which KU wasn't able to snag)
KS had no 4* recruits but 6 3* recruits, of which, KU snagged 2 of (OU got two others and two are still undecided

So we can determine that the statement that KS produces "zero talent" is untrue, as it produced the only 5* athlete between the two states. MO absolutely has more top prospects (3* and above) to choose from, but of the top talent (4*) only one (so far) is going to MU.

Of course, there's two main ways of building a program, you ink the best recruits out of high school or you develop talent that hasn't yet reached its potential. So, all this star business isn't necessarily an absolute way of determining how successful a given school's program is going to be. A prgram with higher rated high school recruits may have less upside to develop while a school that develops players may have a better program depending on when those players mature. Ideally, you have a nice mix of the two.

Just for fun, let's look at some of the other states you mentioned:

OK:

no 5* athletes
six 4* athletes (3 undecided, 3 staying in state)
eighteen 3* athletes

I'd say OK has as much if not more talent than MO

NE

no 5 or 4* athletes
four 3* athletes (2 undecided, 1 to KU)

IA

No 5* athletes
three 4* athletes (3 undecided, 1 to Iowa)
one 3* athlete (to ISU)

CO

no 5* athletes
one 4* athlete (undecided)
seven 3* athletes (4 undecided, 3 out of state)

So, out of that grouping, KS was the only one to produce a 5* athlete. OK and MO had the most prospects.

TX

4 5* athletes
thirty-three 4* athletes
sixty-three 3* athletes (may be more, but they stop after 100)

If we look at who is making the lists between KS and MO of undecided recruits in other states:

OK:

KU: (one 4*; seven 3* plus one committed to KU)
MU: (one 4*; one 3*)

NE:

KU: (two 3* plus one committed to KU)
MU: (none)

IA:

KU: (two 4*; one 3*)
MU: (one 4*)

CO:

KU: (none)
MU: (none)

TX

KU: (five 4* plus one commit; nineteen 3* plus 2 commits)
MU: (five 4*; five 3* plus 1 commit)

From this analysis, I would conclude that while MU certainly has a good talent base to focus on in MO, KU has really branched out in each of the surrounding states (save CO) to make a go at the top prospects in each. Of course, this in no way speaks to genuine level of interest of any of those recruits, but it does allow you to see where the recruiting philosophies lie in KU and MU. For those reasons, I just don't think comparing the high school talent pools of those respective states is a good indication as to who will rule the roost for the majority of years in the North division.

MU RUNNING LOW ON TICKETS: For the Border War against Kansas at Arrowhead Stadium that is.
That’s why unofficial word has gone out to booster groups that it might be smart for MU fans to take advantage of the on-going sale of tickets from KU rather than wait for MU’s remaining alottment of tickets to go on sale through Ticketmaster by Aug. 18.
That’s because Missouri may have no tickets left to sell from its allotment of 30,000.
“Right now I can’t give you a clear answer,” said Mark Alnutt, associate athletic director. “If they is (a public sale), it might be so limited.”
Many MU fans have peppered Internet message boards with claims of buying tickets in bulk from the KU online ticket office since Border War tickets went on sale at 9 a.m. last Friday.
As of 8:30 p.m. on Monday, it was still possible to buy as many as 10 tickets in a row from the KU online site (http://kuathletics.cstv.com and navigate to online tickets) at $35 each in the upper level reserved section of Arrowhead Stadium. Kansas, like Missouri, took an allotment of 30,000 tickets.
About 20,000 were taken by the Chiefs for sale to their season ticket holders and other groups.
A year ago MU had a ticket allotment of only 16,000 but still managed an approximate 60-40 split in fans in the stands, according to MU officials.

As of 8:30 p.m. on Monday, it was still possible to buy as many as 10 tickets in a row from the KU online site (http://kuathletics.cstv.com and navigate to online tickets) at $35 each in the upper level reserved section of Arrowhead Stadium. Kansas, like Missouri, took an allotment of 30,000 tickets.
About 20,000 were taken by the Chiefs for sale to their season ticket holders and other groups.
A year ago MU had a ticket allotment of only 16,000 but still managed an approximate 60-40 split in fans in the stands, according to MU officials.

Sweet...I just got two. Thanks KU fans.

Stupid MU fans.

By selling all the KU tickets and filling the stadium with black and gold it's playing right into KU's hands because they make a ton of money they can't spend to get players...

Really? Loyal since when? Sept of 2007? Before that I dont recall this much squawking about the Tiggers...

Funny how a winning season changing the loyalty of fans... And before you start crying foul, KU fans are just as bandwagonish as Tigger fans...

Missouri has consistently averaged over 55k per home game when they were winning 2-5 games a season. Calling MU fans bandwagon is laughable and shows a lack of homework done on your part.


The worst kept secret ever is that MU is historically a football school and didn't pay much attention to hoops until Norm's arrival coincided with Devine's departure in the early seventies.

they aren't going to be worth as much it's not a #1/#2 game. it will be probably a 1 or 2 loss team against a 3 or 4 loss team

I'll give you that.

I haven't.

MU sucked for so long I didn't bother. They were "our" team but there was no point. They had sucked and sucked and became the definiton of suck.

But I was a football fan and finally settled on Bowden's 'Noles. Defensive team, fought for every win, never gave up. I gained respect for those early-mid 90's teams.

But what the Tigers did last year? That's like hearing the neighborhood nerd killed 200 at Normandy before he fell. It's the homely girl down the street winning Mrs. America. It's a broke single mother struggling to find a way to pay for college and winning the lottery.

It just doesn't happen.

And I think a lot of the front-runner MU fans you see now are just that: people hoping for a local version of the Miracle On Ice.

I know I'm guilty...:)

Before using the word "historically" again check Devine's records and bowl appearances from the sixties, not to mention Don Faurot's teams before that.

Okay - I could only pull data back to 1998 from the NCAA website, but there's some pretty bad seasons in here. Not quite 55k, but close.

Average Attendance - Missouri

1998 - 57,335
1999 - 58,374
2000 - 53,600
2001 - 52,583
2002 - 52,723
2003 - 53,274
2004 - no data
2005 - 53,364
2006 - 55,918

Ummm, I remember going to the MU/KSU game in Columbia in 2000. We showed up at kickoff, walked down to the 50 yard line and grabbed a seat. I'm pretty sure there were a lot more KSU fans than the few thousand MU fans there.

Well, I wouldn't speak for the loyalty of all KU fans either, but when I attended, I went to every home football game, that's the '88-'90 seasons. Not exactly what we call the "revenue generator days". I'd love to attend now, unfortunately, constraints make that impossible. Glad to see they are doing so well now, athletically and financially. Again, thank you for supporting KU athletics.

Interesting.


BTW, sounds like there were only a couple or three thousand tix available to the general public.


There will be no sale of Border War football tickets to the general public by Missouri, MU associate athletic director Mark Alnutt has confirmed to The Star.

“The Chiefs do not have any for public sale either,” Alnutt said.

That leaves Kansas as the only source for the public to buy tickets, but as of Wednesday night, only single tickets remained for sale at the KU Athletics Web site, www.kuathletics.com (http://www.kuathletics.com).

Last week, Alnutt warned that Missouri’s allotment of 30,000 tickets might be insufficient to warrant a planned Monday sale to the public through Ticketmaster.com. In light of that, Missouri fans have been buying tickets from KU’s allotment of 30,000 tickets for the Nov. 29 game at Arrowhead Stadium.

Jim Marchiony, Kansas associate athletic director for external relations, told The Star on Wednesday evening that only 100 to 150 single tickets remained for sale through KU. He said the school had offered its Williams Fund ticket holders the first crack at KU’s allotment.

“Ninety to 95 percent were gone by the time we made them available to the general public,” Marchiony said.

He said that KU was holding back 3,000 tickets for students to purchase once they return to campus.
The Chiefs, Alnutt said, hold an allotment of 20,000 tickets, those available first to season-ticket holders and special-interest groups associated with the NFL club.

The few remaining tickets from Missouri’s allotment, Alnutt said, are being reserved for Tiger Scholarship Fund contributors and other financial boosters. The rest have been purchased through the student ticket program and by scholarship fund members.

My son plays with Mizzou's hot shot signee LB on his high school football team at Lees Summit West.

He got the full ride scholorship as a junior and despite having an acl injury at the time.

Picked Mizzou over Michigan, Oklahoma, Kansas, Kansas State and USC to name a few. He's a beast 6'3" 245 and is very quick to the outside.
