Tigers have had a strong showing in the NFL, especially since the 1970s.
No doubt, with a 5-7 season, the Mizzou Tigers had a disappointing launch in the Southeast Conference (SEC). The inability to get six wins and earn a birth in a bowl game was painful. Still, the Tigers have had rich and proud heritage, especially when earning post-season recognition and putting players into the National Football League. Presently, the Tigers have three quarterbacks on active rosters: Blaine Gabbert, Jacksonville; Brad Smith, Buffalo (QB and wide receiver); and Chase Daniel, New Orleans. Jeremy Maclin, Philadelphia, and Denario Alexander, San Diego, have become two premier receivers in the NFL. Sean Weatherspoon, linebacker for Atlanta, is a key member of the Falcons playoff-team defense. Two Tigers are enshrined in the NFL…

This rugged two-way performer at MICDS is the tonic the Tigers really need right now.
Gary Pinkel, Mizzou football coach, are you listening? Next fall, without fail, you need to play new freshman Michael Scherer and probably both ways. I'd be happy to repeat that. Mizzou hasn’t had two-way starters since the 1960s when Andy Russell of Ladue played fullback and linebacker and Texan Johnny Roland started sometimes at runningback and safety. It can be done. Football is no more physical or demanding today than back in the Dan Devine era, in which, by the way the Tigers were never losing to Kansas State. Saturday’s woeful performance in the other Manhattan only proved the Tigers need to upgrade their talent. Tiny 185 pound backs ran Mizzou’s defense silly. Scherer, who will arrive at Mizzou filled out at least 6-foot-3, 238 …
