I imagine most folks feel this way and it will have low ratings, much like Bama v LSU a few years ago.
I'm not most folks, but I was far more interested in a Georgia-Alabama than any of the other possible scenarios. I've mostly given up football the last few years but actually added the ESPN package to my Sling TV subscription just to watch this matchup. And it lived up to the hype.

There wouldn't be.

If you want to complain about a missed penalty, the rarely seen facemask/horse collar combo somehow not being called (to make it 3rd and forever, too) in the 3rd quarter is the one to go after.

I missed that one.

On the KO return, that should be unnecessary roughness IMO, even though a clothesline is still legal, I guess.

i was reading the article on the post dispatch for the 2018 mizzou schedule last night before that was announced, and thinking returning will actually be a bad decision on his part.

their 2018 schedule is BRUTAL...

and breaking in a coordinator who has NEVER called plays before?

yeah, he may have slipped to a 3-4-5 round pick had he come out this year...but what if mizzou goes 4-8 (which is probable IMO looking at that schedule) and has a down season statistically? could go to being undrafted

Scouts pay more attention to ability/talent/tools than wins-losses. But, yeah, it can be tough to showcase abilities if the offense is inept.
