1. Missouri’s offense should keep on rolling
Missouri’s offense wasn’t the high-flying fun show this year under offensive coordinator under Derek Dooley like it was under now-UCF head caoch Josh Heupel, but it’s even better in a lot of ways.
It’s more controlled, it works a bit better in the overall scheme and plan of the team, and it’s been effective and efficient. The O line has done its job in pass protection, Drew Lock is getting the ball out of his hands in a hurry, and the attack is cranking up 469 yards per game and 37 points.
No pressure or anything, Kelly Bryant, but keep the offense this good, if not better.
The top three running backs – led by 1,012-yard, ten touchdown Larry Rountree – are expected to return.WR Emanuel Hall is graduating, but four of the top five receivers on this years team should be back. Two starters are done on the O line – particularly right tackle Paul Adams – but this should still be a good group.
Bryant is coming into a great situation. If he’s looking for the reps, the stats, the wins, and the profile to turn into more of an NFL prospect, it’ll be all there for him.
And it’ll be all there for Missouri to come up with an even stronger season.
