                  There'll be juice on this cover when Tiger fans get their hands on it.

                    Yeah, it's hard to believe you're cursed when you're sharing the cover with OSU, USC, Georgia, and I forget who else. All those big programs would have to shit the bed, too.

                          It's OK.

                          Two Rose Bowls in 3 years, then a run of about 5 BCS bowls in a row is good enough for me.

                            On Notre Dame's cover, are they using Jimmy Clausen's performance in the Beer Olympics?

                              Tigers on CNN.com today. Here's the story:
                              http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/foo.../missouri.html

                              The Tigers have their sights set on their first Big 12 title -- and the biggest prize of all

                              Strange but true: To fire up his players during a string of uneven performances last season, defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus showed them video of the 1973 Belmont Stakes in which Secretariat and Sham ran the first half of the race side by side, and then Secretariat ran off to a 31-length victory.

                              "My guys were young," Eberflus says, "so I'd show them that video and tell them, 'The race is like the season. In the beginning it's neck and neck,
                              but then we're going to get better. By the end we're going to be pretty doggone good.' "

                              In the end, following a 38-7 Cotton Bowl blowout of Arkansas, the Tigers were 12-2 and No. 4 in the country -- the highest they had ever finished in the AP poll. "We're going to pick up right where we left off in the Cotton Bowl," vows junior linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, a 2007 All-Big 12 selection. "And when people hear 'Mizzou,' we want 'em to think about defense, too."

                              Point taken. With quarterback Chase Daniel, a Heisman finalist as a junior, and all-purpose sophomore Jeremy Maclin headlining an attack that piled up 490 yards and 39.9 points per game last season, the Tigers' offense will once again dominate conversation. What makes this team especially scary, though, is that Missouri will field its best defense in coach Gary Pinkel's eight years on the job.

                              Ten defensive starters from that Cotton Bowl rout return, and Eberflus's units have improved steadily since '03. That's when he junked a 4-4 scheme in favor of a 4-3 Tampa Two that takes pressure off the cornerbacks -- they play more zone, less man-to-man -- and is ideally suited for his array of zone blitzes. Those blitzes are made more effective by hybrid weapons such as senior free safety William Moore.

                              A 6' 1" 230-pounder* who is equal measures headhunter and ball hawk, Moore hopscotches from his safety position to nickelback to strongside linebacker. He finished last season with eight interceptions, tied for the Division I-A lead. The truth is, Moore may be as exciting and versatile on defense as Maclin is on the other side of the ball. Pinkel's ability to attract athletes of their caliber has fueled the program's breakthrough.

                              "When I got here, we were just trying to put together a winning season," says Weatherspoon. "Now, you're hearing national championship talk."
                              If the Tigers get past Illinois in their opener, they will cruise through September undefeated. Heading into conference play, Mizzou should be, as Eberflus might say, off to the races. -- Austin Murphy



                              * William Moore got BIG. I don't know if he was even 220 last year. In reading powermizzou, Gabe DeArmond said he looks 10x better this year. He's flying all over the field and dominating. He's going to be fun, fun, fun to watch. Isn't it crazy to think that Mizzou may have a Safety drafted in the Top 10 next year... nuts.
