So, helping out with some Chiefs coverage gave me the chance to talk to some guy named Chase Daniel, the former Missouri quarterback.

If you’re wondering, the Tigers’ fast start to the season hasn’t escaped his attention (even with the Chiefs also off to a red-hot start).
“Absolutely, I still pay attention to how they’re doing,” Daniel said.
So far, he likes what he sees too.
“It’s good for them to get rolling for the start of SEC play,” Daniel said. “As you know, the schedule will get a lot tougher, but these guys, if they stay healthy, I think they’ll go a long way.”
Missouri’s struggles last season didn’t diminish his love for the black and gold.
“It’s important to see the team have success again after a tough year, but Mizzou will always be in my heart no matter how many games they win or how many games they lose,” Daniel said. “But it’s definitely better to see them win, and gives you a sense of pride.”
Daniel is the Tigers’ all-time leader in passing yards (12,515), touchdowns (101), efficiency rating (149.0), completion percentage (68.0), passing attempts (1,609) and completions (1,094).
He also has the most 200-, 300- and 400-yard passing games in Missouri history.
The Tigers went 30-11, won two Big 12 North championships and won two bowl games — the 2008 Cotton Bowl and 2008 Alamo Bowl — with Daniel as the starting quarterback.
