This showed up in my inbox today and thought I'd pass it on for those who don't receive University emails.


On behalf of our players and coaches I want to thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you at our Home Opener in The ZOU this Saturday at 6 pm.

Remember to Wear Gold on Saturday. I can't emphasize enough that when we all wear the same color it shows Mizzou is a team, both on the field and in the stands. Please remember the rest of our Pride Points and Be Responsible,Arrive Early/Stay LateCelebrate our Traditions and Respect the Game.

I also want to invite you to come out to Tiger Walk to greet the team when we arrive at the pedestrian bridge on the West side of the stadium at 3:45 pm on Saturday (two hours and 15 minutes prior to kickoff). I can't tell you how meaningful it is for our team to see great support from our students when we arrive.

Remember – Wear Gold, cheer on our team at Tiger Walk, exhibit good sportsmanship and BE LOUD – BE LOUD – BE LOUD!!

Thanks again for being the best fans in the nation!!!!

Go Tigers!!
