Pinkel fired, Mustard in as new Missouri coach




After a stunning 24-9 home loss to the Toledo Rockets, the Missouri Tigers have cut ties with longtime head coach Gary Pinkel, ending a 12-year run at the helm of the Mizzou football program.

Players and fans alike were stunned by the announcement, as well as a report that Mr. Mustard was deep in talks with Athletic Director Mike Alden to take over for Pinkel with just two weeks left before SEC play.

Brian Eason, a Missouri alum, said it was unfair that Pinkel was let go after one bad game.

"Y'all remember the Chase Daniel years, right? And how bad we were before that?" Eason said. "Pinkel's done a lot of good for this program."

Players mostly greeted the news with bewilderment.

"Mustard? Like, the condiment?" said HB Henry Josey.

Little is known about Mustard, who is a Mizzou graduate himself. An extensive background check by the Columbia Daily Tribune came up empty, unable even to produce a first name.

A source close to the team said he is expected to expand on the team's existing Pistol sets and install new singleback formations, as he seeks to shift the team away from the Spread offense.

Last-second FG propels Mizzou to road win
Missouri 20, Indiana 17



Missouri K Andrew Baggett celebrates with teammates after his last-second FG.

It wasn't pretty, but the Missouri Tigers eked out a road win Thursday night against the previously undefeated Indiana Hoosiers.

With the win, the Tigers improved to 2-1 on the season, and 1-0 under new head coach Mr. Mustard. But it wasn't easy.

The offense struggled to find a rhythm early on as two costly turnovers by Freshman QB Maty Mauk gave the Hoosiers easy scoring chances inside the red zone, and a quick 10 points on the board. For a while, that was all they needed.

Mauk was making just his second career start Thursday, after Senior QB James Franklin went down Week 1 with a dislocated elbow. He connected early and often with WRs Dorial Green-Beckham and L'Damian Washington, but the offense stalled time and again in scoring position in the first half.

After the game, Mustard credited the defense with keeping the team in the game.

"You know, it really wasn't until late in the 3rd that our offense was able to settle down," Mustard said. "So you gotta give the D a lot of credit. Those guys played hard out there."

But when the offense finally got on track and took a 17-10 lead, the defense folded, surrendering a long TD drive to Indiana on the very next series. Mauk responded with a gem of his own, controlling the ball for the next 5 minutes to set up K Andrew Baggett with a chance to win the game.

Baggett missed a chipshot from the right hashmark earlier, but was able to redeem himself after RB Henry Josey centered the ball around the 15 yard line.

"Look, we know that ain't gonna work in SEC play. But come on, man," Mauk said. "I just got Coach Mustard's playbook three days ago. We're happy with the win."

Tigers coast to win over Arkansas State


Missouri 49, Arkansas State 21


After being carried to victory by its defense last week, Missouri's offense stepped up.

HB Henry Josey ran for 158 yards and 3 TDs, while Freshman QB Maty Mauk added 3 scores of his own as the Tigers coasted to victory against the Arkansas State Red Wolves.

"We're going to Disney World!" exclaimed Head Coach Mr. Mustard afterward. "No, seriously guys, what do you think my reaction is? Good win, but we've got a long week of practice ahead of us to prepare for Vandy."

The win slams the door on what was expected to be a cupcake non-conference schedule for Missouri, but the team only managed to escape with three wins in four games, one of which was sealed by a last second FG.

"We're getting there," Mauk said. "It's hard not to look good out there when Josey goes off for 10 yards a carry, but honestly, just coming out of huddles and stuff, we were a lot more comfortable than we were last week."

Mustard called a much more varied offensive attack than a week earlier, something analysts attributed to more comfort with a newly installed playbook. As opposed to the pistol-heavy offense of a week ago, Missouri frequently trotted out shotgun sets, and mixed in more read options and draw plays to keep the defense off balance.

To go along with his 278 yards passing, Mauk chipped in 42 rushing yards on 9 carries, putting the Tigers above 200 yards rushing for the day.

The defense forced a pick 6, but ultimately turned in a mediocre effort, surrendering 341 yards of total offense to the Sun Belt school.

"I mean, no, that's not what we were hoping for," Mustard said. "Two steps forward, one step back I guess. Maybe we can get both sides of the ball to show up in Nashville."

Last second, 4th down heroics vanquish Vanderbilt

Missouri 24, Vanderbilt 23

TE Eric Waters celebrates after Mizzou's comeback win.
The Missouri Tigers stunned the Vanderbilt Commodores on Saturday, securing a come-from-behind victory on a 4th and goal touchdown with mere seconds remaining.

After struggling mightily in the first half, QB Maty Mauk threw 3 TDs after halftime, including two in the 4th quarter to overcome a 20-3 deficit.

With the win, Missouri improves to 3-0 under Coach Mustard, and 4-1 overall.

The Tigers' offense looked sluggish to begin its first conference game, after dominating an overmatched Arkansas State squad a week earlier. Vanderbilt dominated the line of scrimmage in the first half, sacking Mauk twice early on and clearing huge running lanes for HB Wesley Tate (12 carries, 119 yards).

In the third quarter, Missouri cut the lead to 10, then held Vanderbilt to a FG at the 11-yard line on its next drive. Mauk would find WR Dorial Green-Beckham for a 9-yard TD with 3 minutes to go, cutting the lead to 6, then the Tiger defense forced a 3-and-out to give Missouri one chance at a 2 minute drill.

Mauk quickly advanced the ball to the Vanderbilt 6-yard line, then was set up with 3rd and goal at the 2. The next play, a Vanderbilt safety forced a big drop by WR L'Damian Washington, leaving the Tigers with 9 seconds and one play.

All of the Tigers' wide receivers were covered, but TE Eric Waters was able to find just enough space in the flat for the go-ahead score.

Injured QB James Franklin could only watch from the sideline as Mauk, a red-shirt freshman, led the team to just its second SEC road victory since joining the conference. 

The effort had reporters uttering the "c-word" during the post-game press conference.

"A quarterback controversy?" Mustard repeated. "I don't see any controversy here. We have two good quarterbacks, and one good healthy quarterback. When that changes, I'll let you know."

Yeah, my schedule gets real bad, real fast. I'd feel great about even going 2-1 over this stretch.

Actually, last season Mizzou had the hardest schedule in all of CFB when they went back and re-calculated it at the end of the year. And we basically have the same schedule this year, just swapping Ole Miss for Alabama. This was the worst possible time to be paired with Texas A&M as our SEC West "rival." It switches to Arkansas next year in real life, but I kind of doubt EA programmed that into the game.

Mizzou upsets Georgia

Missouri 20, Georgia 17


Dominant line play and another clutch 4th quarter by freshman QB Maty Mauk lifted the Missouri Tigers to their fourth straight win, upsetting the No. 15 Georgia Bulldogs on their home field.

"This one was big," Coach Mustard said afterward. "Truth be told, I wasn't sure how our guys were gonna respond."

Overmatched on paper, Missouri responded by controlling the line of scrimmage from the first snap, registering 5 sacks and 9 tackles for a loss on the day.

With the road win, Mizzou improved to 4-0 under Mustard, and 5-1 overall. But despite talking a 13-3 lead into halftime, the Tigers needed yet another comeback drive to secure the win.

Trailing 17-13 late in the fourth quarter, Mauk converted two 4th downs — both to WR Dorial Green-Beckham, who is having a breakout year — en route to the game-winning touchdown.

Georgia still had 2 minutes to work with on its ensuing drive, but it was derailed around midfield thanks to back-to-back sacks by DE Kony Ealy. He finished with 3 sacks on the day.

"Relieved, honestly," Mauk said, when asked for how he felt after the game. "If I hadn't thrown 3 picks we wouldn't have been in that situation to begin with. But my guys stuck with me. DGB, man -- he's a beast. He makes my job a lot easier."

Missouri won't have long to celebrate. The Tigers' brutal schedule continues next week with Florida, followed by No. 7 South Carolina a week later.

Tigers bounce back against Cocks

Missouri 35, South Carolina 24

COLUMBIA — Mizzou's offense bounced back from a sluggish performance a week earlier to lead the Tigers past the South Carolina Gamecocks and keep the team's SEC title hopes alive.

After struggling with 2 early INTs, Maty Mauk went on to throw for 270 yards and 3 TDs, spreading the ball to 7 different receivers on the day. But the true star for Missouri was HB Henry Josey, who ran for 114 yards and 2 TDs in front of the home crowd.

With the win, Mizzou improved to 6-2 overall after going 2-1 in a brutal three-game stretch that included three ranked opponents in Georgia, Florida and South Carolina.

"Am I happy with 2-1?" Coach Mustard said after the game. "I don't know about happy, but, those are three very good teams. We knew all along that this stretch was going to define our season, and I think we acquitted ourselves well."

But as in last week's loss to the Florida Gators, Missouri struggled to defend the run. HB Mike Davis went off for 104 yards on 13 carries, while Freshman QB Brendan Nosovitch rushed for 44 yards on just 4 carries.

Nosovitch struggled to throw the ball in the rain, however, completing just 14 of 23 passes for 166 yards.

Next up for Missouri: A nap. And then a home game against No. 16 Tennessee.

A real good shot.  I believe the Tigers are i sole possession of first place at the moment.  Now, if we can just find a way to get you into the Top 25 polls.

Vols top Tigers in thriller
Mustard had aneurysm, dies on field


Missouri 35, Tennessee 38

Why the hell is it snowing?

The Missouri Tigers lost a heartbreaker to the No. 22 Tennessee Volunteers in a game that featured bizarre officiating, no defense and an inexplicable blizzard in the middle of autumn.

But the play that will be remembered was Coach Mustard's controversial decision to go for it on 4th and 5 with a minute to play with the team in FG range.

"Why the (expletive) is that controversial?" Mustard said afterward. "Did you watch the same game I did? We give the ball back to them with the score tied, we lose. Is it controversial to try to (expletive) win games now? Don't write that, let me think of something to say without saying (expletive)."

Controversial or not, the gamble looked like it was going to pay off, as Maty Mauk hit Darius White in the hands on a slant, well past the first down marker. With open field ahead of him, White dropped the pass.

TV cameras caught Mustard jumping around on the sideline like a lunatic, screaming at the top of his lungs.

The drop was just the latest in a series of frustrating plays for the Tigers, who fell to 6-3 with the loss. The defense, which had looked so good against the pass in recent weeks, folded altogether, only forcing a single punt all game. The lone punt came after the officiating crew called the first offensive pass interference against the CPU in the history of EA Sports, helping the Tigers force a third and long play and an eventual punt.

The Tigers almost forced a punt in the first half when DE Kony Ealy snuffed out a 3rd and long screen play from the opposite side of the field, only to have the referee call a facemask against him. Ealy later would set the school record for sacks in a season, recording his 11th of the year.

Mauk was brilliant in the loss, leading the Tigers on touchdown drive after touchdown drive, after it became clear that his defense wasn't going to do anything worthwhile.

"You'd think it would be really hard to play in a blizzard but... Eh. Seemed pretty easy out there for both offenses today," Mauk said, shrugging.

Mustard made a stunning announcement after the game, with Senior QB James Franklin expected to return from injury soon.

"Mauk's my guy," he said. "How's that for controversy?"

SNOWMAGEDDON CONTINUES

Missouri 35, Ole Miss 21



The perpetually unranked Missouri Tigers on Saturday defeated a ranked opponent for the 3rd time in 2013, knocking off the No. 21 Ole Miss Rebels in Oxford.

But the game was overshadowed by a bizarre rant in the post-game press conference in which Coach Mustard called on the NCAA to investigate the weather.

"It's compromising the integrity of the entire game," Mustard said, between sips of hot chocolate. "My team has played more snow games in the last four weeks than this program has in the last decade put together. Don't tell me that hasn't had a negative effect on our season, and don't tell me it's a coincidence."

Reporters wondered aloud how the NCAA would even investigate something like the weather, or if Mustard understood how meteorology even worked, but Mustard ignored them, and continued his rant.

"I mean, one or two games, sure," Mustard said. "Three, MAYBE, but they better be in some place really cold, like one of the f---ing Dakotas. You mean to tell me it just happened to snow 10 inches in Mississippi? Before Thanksgiving?

"NOPE. Not buying it."

When asked whether the NCAA would consider such an investigation, an NCAA spokesman laughed, then said: "Oh wait. You're serious?" before hastily declining to comment.

"I guess I'd better run it by the league office just to make sure," he said.

With the win, Missouri improved to 7-4 overall, 4-3 in conference play, and 1-2 in the snow.

HB Henry Josey was spectacular in the victory, rushing for 136 yards and 3 TDs on 19 carries, before leaving the game with back spasms. He is expected to miss next week's game against Texas A&M, but should return in time to play in the team's bowl game.

QB Maty Mauk also left the game briefly with bruised ribs, but he would return after a few plays.

After Josey went out, backup running back Marcus Murphy picked up right where he left off, rushing for 92 yards and 1 TD of his own on 12 second half carries.

Next up for Missouri is a clash against No. 17 Texas A&M. Meteorologists expect clear skies and brisk temperatures in College Station next weekend. The game, however, is in Columbia, which is expected to get a record 22 inches of snow.

Mizzou signs 4 more crappy players

The University of Missouri announced in a press release that it has received commitments from four more mediocre recruits, bringing its total class to 13.

The latest commitments include 3-star recruits QB John Howard, DE Derek Grant and CB Nick Newman. 2-star OLB J.T. Bush also announced that he will be joining the Tiger family.

"We really feel this guys represent what we're all about here at Missouri: mediocrity, and a pre-New Years bowl appearance," Coach Mustard said. "We think they'll fit in nicely at Mizzou."

The school is the only SEC university to not sign a single recruit of 4 stars or better this late in the year, although it is making a strong push for LG Joe Young, the No. 3 guard in the nation. Analysts say Missouri is now Young's top school.

Mustard dismissed the report as a vicious rumor, saying that Missouri would never offer a scholarship to someone that good at football.

"Who do you think we are, Kentucky?"
