Missouri shows improvement on offense in annual Black & Gold Game

History will record that the second string, which started with a 14-point lead, claimed a 17-10 victory in front of an announced crowd of 30,117 at Memorial Stadium. But it was the improvement MU showed, particularly on offense, since the first scrimmage April 4 that means the most with an eye toward the 2015 season and the quest for a third consecutive SEC East division crown.

Mike Alden made mistakes at Mizzou, but was right about football and the SEC

For all of the mistakes or personality quirks that kept Mike Alden from being a more thorough success as Missouri’s athletic director the past 17 years, he will forever be remembered for getting the two most important parts of his professional life absolutely right.

Missouri offense improves in second half of split scrimmage

The Tigers’ defense, which led 8-4 after the scrimmage was split in half Saturday because of depth issues, still won 32-6 based on the modified scrimmage scoring system, but there were undeniable positives for the beleaguered offense when the scrimmage resumed Tuesday. Quarterback Maty Mauk threw for two touchdowns on Tuesday as the offense seized a measure of momentum with just one practice remaining before the annual Black & Gold Game on Saturday.
