Mizzou has not had a good season. They’re 4-4 and have underperformed this season considering they were the SEC East champions for two years in a row.

As the clock showed all zeros, I applauded the winning team Saturday night in Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville, TN. As I looked over to my dad, a Vandy alum, I told him, “I’m glad Vanderbilt won, they deserved it. Mizzou didn’t.” It was the third week in a row that the Mizzou football team had been embarrassed by an SEC opponent.

Three points against Florida on Homecoming.

Six points on the road against Georgia.

Three points on the road against Vanderbilt, who won its first SEC game since beating Tennessee in 2014 under head coach James Franklin.

Not good for the defending SEC East champs.

After holding those three opponents to a combined 40 points, you have to begin to wonder how in the world the Missouri Tigers didn’t win at least one of these games. Well, look no further than the offense.
