Take note Jayhawks, The Missouri Football knows how to handle a cupcake on it's schedule. Saturday evening in Columbia, the Tigers took apart the visiting Cowboys from McNeese State. The Tigers controlled this game from the opening kickoff - beating their Div 1-AA foe by a score of 50-6. The six points for McNeese were scored in the 4th Quarter when Head Coach Gary Pinkel had finally called off the dogs - I think the water boy and team managers were playing by this time.
Missouri also found a new running back to work into the rotation. True Freshman, Henry Josey had a break out game filling in for the injured Kendial Lawrence. On his first touch, he ran for 34 yards down the sideline. Josey ended the day with 112 yards on only 7 carries with 3 TDs. The Tigers now have three viable options at Running Back in Josey, Lawrence, and De'Vion Moore. Mizzou Quarterback Blaine Gabbert also had a field day completing his first 15 passes on his way to a 26 of 31 day for 220 yards and a TD. His completion percentage set a single game Tiger record. Former quarterback, T. J. Moe solidified himself as the team's leading receiver with another double digit reception game.
Meanwhile, former Missouri Team Captain, Derrick Washington was arrested again Sunday morning. He was taken into custody at his residence on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic assault. He posted $1000 bail and was released. It seems Coach Pinkel was absolutely correct in cutting this guy loose as soon as possible. It's a damn shame.
