His official 40 is listed at 4.40 on ESPN, but he is quick.
He's been a very solid receiver for the Tigers the last few years, he is actually the top one in OVR but his catch and jump ratings are much lower than the one's above him on the depth chart, which I reorganized as Gary Pinkle's aid.
I hope he can get back onto my team soon

The thing about 40's in High School is everybody is a 4.2 lol I went 4.27, got to college and that quickly turned into a 4.4 lol with an occasional mid 4.3.

Liking the suspension thing, With my team being so young I was thinking about doing that or hitting my school with some type of scandal, just dont know which one to do yet! I may wait for this class to graduate and think rock my dynasty with a scandal lol

I will never do a scandal cause I love MU, they'd never go evil! Haha.. Well maybe a tOSU without a coach covering it up type scandal but nothing where the program is heavily tainted I don't think. A few kids getting in trouble, maybe someone getting arrested, that's fair game.

I cannot wait for the Kansas game, I hope they arrive 11-0. If Arkansas wins out and I beat KU twice my resume hopefully will get me past UCLA or Ohio State, but I doubt it. (UCLA plays Oregon and TCU, two teams that should finish top 10)

Re: When the Defense Roars: Missouri Tigers Dynasty

Pinkle would love to face Rock in BCS National Championship
Missouri's head coach Gary Pinkle would love to face former defensive coordinator Johnny Rock and his Ohio State Buckeyes (#1 Harris, #2 Coaches, #2 BCS) for the BCS National Championship.
"Without a doubt, I mean he is one of the best defensive minds I have ever seen. Yeah his defenses give up points, but have you ever noticed they never gave up more than the offense could cover. At Missouri we were a heavy 4-3 team when he entered, but we always were defense first then offense, and it's only now we are starting to see his recruits and the guys he worked with making themselves into star players. Our defense today is his, he built it, and then his former colleague has taken it over himself."

Joey Davis, Missouri's current DC, had comments himself. "To be quite honest, he is a smart guy. Yeah the last 3 years were not the brightest defensive efforts ever, but did you ever see anyone besides two schools really take advantage of Missouri's defense one he implemented his system? Kansas and Boise State are systems, they develop a very effective passing game, and it worked. They are the only two teams to beat Missouri the last 44 games, and both were close offensive games. I built on the talent he recruited, in fact everyone here now that starts got his stamp of approval. Notice nobody has really exploited our secondary? That's his talent for recruiting and my defensive plans. Arkansas, the best passing team in the nation, had to rely on their running game to move the ball consistently on us. Short story, I would love to stack my defense up against his offense, and I would love to see MU/OSU in the BCS National Championship."

Re: When the Defense Roars: Missouri Tigers Dynasty

#1 Tigers to much for Longhorns
While the stadium was packed with over 98,000 fans, and most of them were rooting for the fall of the #1 Tigers, there was just too much talent and drive for the top ranked Missouri Tigers to fall to the 2-5 Texas Longhorns.

Missouri started the game with a unique twist, they ran the ball down Texas's throat with little passing on the first drive, going up 7-0.
Texas responded by starting a nice little drive but choked on 3rd and 6 when Moore got in the way of a pass and forced 4th down.

Moore stepped up big in the secondary

Missouri kept chipping away on offense, and their defense held. Early on Texas got into the red zone three times, including right before halftime. Missouri faced 1st and goal from the 1 yard line, but S. Ray broke through the line on the first play and sacked C. Wood for a loss of 3. The defensive front held and secondary did not let them down, and Texas had to settle for 20 yard chipshot to make it 21-3. Missouri responded with a quick 73 yard drive capped off by J. Ross catching a 23 yard pass and waltzing it into the endzone, giving Missouri and commanding 28-3 lead as halftime approached.


J. Ross had a great day receiving with 5 catches and 2 TD


Missouri's wicked defense kept pouring it on the second half, and for good reason, their offense stopped making it into the endzone. Missouri's only second half score was on a 1 yard option run by E. Torres with 3:43 left in the fourth quarter that was set up by a pick by K. Hall, but it did not matter as Missouri won handily 35-3.


Harris slams a Longhorn hard, letting them know there is a price for playing the Tigers


K. Hall gets Missouri into great field position with his 4th quarter pick



A. Roach made people forget about D. Washington with a sweet INT late in the fourth quarter in the endzone to prevent a Texas touchdown

Missouri POTG: E. Torres 22/35 for 313 yards and 3 TD, 9 carries for 24 yards and another TD
S. Ray had 8 tackles, 6 TFL, and 3 sacks
A. Roach, B. Moore, and K. Hall had 4, 6, and 5 tackles respectively and 1 INT apiece

Re: When the Defense Roars: Missouri Tigers Dynasty

Weekend results, Polls, Analysis

There were several upsets, but none was bigger than #10 TCU beating #5 UCLA. Now UCLA might have been #5 but based on their schedule, had they beaten TCU odds are they would have leaped to #2 in at least the Harris poll, odds are likely they would have also been #2 in the Coaches Poll due to being a Pacific-12 team.

This leaves Ohio State, Missouri, Kansas, South Florida, Boise State, and Navy as the only remaining undefeated FBS football squads. Missouri and Kansas benefit the most. Most likely USF and Boise State will not leap an undefeated Big XII champion, especially since an undefeated Big XII Champion would have to have beaten either #3 or #2 twice in three weeks, so two wins over top 10 competition right at the end of the season.

Nobody knows where each team stands in the BCS, but everyone is project Ohio State #1, Missouri #2, and Kansas #3. Most have USF at #4 although some are saying Boise is #4. Oregon is the consensus #6, and TCU #7. This is intriguing, although should be accurate since Oregon did defeat TCU not that long ago. However, TCU defeated UCLA who beat Oregon. Luckily if TCU and Oregon win out we can have our rematch in the PAC-12 title game!

Ohio State has a rough schedule left, they still have to play #12 Wisconsin (6-1), at #11 Penn State (6-1), and then finish the season at home against #13 Michigan (5-2).

Missouri has teams at or above .500 teams left. Oklahoma (4-4), Army (6-2), and at #3 Kansas (7-0).

Kansas has to go to Oklahoma State (5-3), host KSU (4-3), go to Arizona (4-2), host Baylor (5-2), and then host #2 Missouri (6-0).

USF only has two winning teams left to face, hosting Pittsburg (4-2) and Cincinnati (4-2).

Boise State still has to travel to Baylor (5-2), Nevads (5-3), and New Mexico (4-3). Their only home game left in UNLV (1-7).

Navy hosts Notre Dame (4-4), goes to Wake Forest (3-5), hosts SDSU (0-7), and finishes the season hosting Army (6-2).

Navy has the easiest schedule left, but nobody is guaranteed to finish undefeated.

Re: When the Defense Roars: Missouri Tigers Dynasty

Matchup Preview *|* November 1, 2014
@
Oklahoma Sooners
(4-4, Away)
#2 Missouri Tigers
(6-0, 2-0 Home)
Game Notes
In this historic rivalry, there have been multiple long winning streaks, all by Oklahoma. Missouri has only had three winning streaks against Oklahoma, and they are currently in their longest one ever.
Missouri is on a 4 game winning streak against OU, and looking at the records is heading for win #5 in a row. This all started in 2010 in Missouri when then #1 Oklahoma fell to the Tigers.

Missouri's last winning streak against the Sooners ('65/66) ended when the Sooners beat them 7-0 enroute to a #3 AP ranking and a 10-1 record. Missouri doesn't plan on their streak ending this weekend, but you never know when facing Oklahoma.

Missouri has a stingy defense lately on points, but yards have still been given up. ASU and Michigan have exposed Missouri's defense, so look for the Sooners to have a game plan.

Early projections: Missouri 27, Oklahoma 17

Re: When the Defense Roars: Missouri Tigers Dynasty

How do you like the 3-4 compared to the 4-3? I find the 3-4 to be much more dominant but it takes very specific player types.
