Stick with D. Wash

It will pay off. I think his slump really has more to do with the o-line than D. Wash. Dance with the one who brung ya'.

I remember in '05 when everyone was clamoring for Bad Brad to be replaced with Chase D. Then came the Ind. Bowl and we were reminded why GP stuck with Brad.

Is everyone still laughing at me when I said Quentin Castille and Roy Helu are Derrick Washington's caliber? Hold on, AJ the douchebag is on line 2 and he says Im an idiot

Mizzou's OOC > Nebraska OOC

Seriously, THREE Sun Belters? You should be proud. BGSU or Nevada would be your 2nd toughest opponent.

I gave Helu props against VTech. Of course, since he is your only offensive weapon, I'm not worried.

And how is Castille doing for you guys?
Gabberts best friend
written by MU4Life, September 29, 2009
D wash has been Gabberts best friend on a lot of plays this year. Go to youtube and watch the video highlights from the 4 games this season. It was amazing how many of Gabberts highlight reel pass plays were made possible by some hard hitting blocking from D Wash. Not only is he hitting his block every time but he is doing it with authority. Stopping bigger def lineman and LBs in there tracks. He will find his footing in due time. Defs will have no choice but to start dropping more back against Gabbert if they want to win. It is one thing to say we played MU close and lost. It is another to say we played the run and let Gabbert throw on us and won. We will see our fair share of 4-2-5 by the end of the season. Then D Wash will get off.

Mizzou's OOC > Nebraska OOC ?

Strength of Schedule according the Jeff Sagarin:

Nebraska 78
Missouri 91

I've seen several articles in the last few weeks about how crazy the computer rankings are because they have teams like Iowa in the top 5. The reason the BCS rankings don't come out yet is that the formulas and algorithms that go into calculating them require that teams be "connected" by playing common opponents. There isn't enough data yet to connect the teams. That's why one of the computers has Iowa in the top 5, and that's why Nebraska's SOS is currently higher than Missouri's. Don't think that VT can make up for three Sun Belters. To be fair though, I don't think ANYTHING makes up for a FCS team (Furman). There should be rules against that crap.

Yeah because a game that happened five years ago is still completely relevant. No seriously, I'm not being sarcastic at all right now.

And not to knock Troy, who has built a pretty solid program since that debacle, but that game said more about how Mizzou was not ready for Prime Time than it did about the strength of the Sun Belt.

Almost a great burn...if only the MU fanbase wasn't so hung up on what Nebraska has done since 2001. There isn't a bigger group in the nation, led by the fag hag AJ no less, that references records and results dating back 3, 4, 5 or 7 years more than MU's.
written by The True Son, September 30, 2009
Well that's a decent point except I think generally when Mizzou fans reference Nebraska's record over the past 5 years or so it's to show how far they've slipped. With Mizzou in 2004 it was obvious that the program had not yet developed. I'm not saying the Tigers are one of the elite programs in the country but I think we'd all agree they're at least closer to what they were in '06 than what they were in '04.

And I don't need to go back 5 or 7 years to talk about what the Huskers have done lately. I'll just look at the last two. Do 41-6 or 52-17 ring any bells for you, Bump?
written by Mr. Bump, September 30, 2009
I recall both. Quite painfully well in fact. But if two years ago is still relevant so are the last 5, 10 or 20 years.
written by The True Son, September 30, 2009
Yeah because there are still players on each team from games that were played 20 years ago just like the ones from the last two years. Come on, Bump. Think before you type. You're better than this.
