Almost heaven, Mid-Missouri?

Preview

It was more of the same to open the season for Mizzou, as they took another inexcusable loss under Barry Odom last week in Wyoming. The Tigers looked good on offense but struggled on defense, which has been a hallmark under Odom. Perhaps most alarming (and another hallmark under Odom) is how unprepared they looked for the Cowboys. That leads us to the following stat.

Mizzou still has a postseason ban so you could argue this season doesn’t technically matter, but there’s still something to play for, right?

Maybe. We’ll see how Mizzou looks against a West Virginia team that struggled with James Madison at home for three quarters last week.
