University of Missouri’s Faurot Field (formly: Memorial Stadium)
The storied history of Memorial Stadium/Faurot Field combines the best of old and new. Opened in 1926, the stadium has seen tremendous growth throughout the years, but Tiger fans are proud of the traditional feel and atmosphere the stadium lends itself to on game day. The stadium, built at a cost of $350,000, was the product of Coach Gwinn Henry’s championship seasons of 1924-25, and a vision of athletic director Chester L. Brewer. It was carved out of “a sizeable natural valley that lay between twin bluffs south of the University,” chronicled Bob Broeg, longtime sports editor of the St. Louis Post-dispatch, and unofficial historian of Missouri football. The traditional block “M,” carved from stone by the freshman class in 1927, guards the stadium’s north endzone and gives Memorial Stadium one of the more unique landmarks around the country.

Missouri didn’t pull ahead until the fourth quarter of today’s game. It was looking pretty dreary, so during the second quarter, I tried to capitalize on that mood and…
How real of a deal are they? The win over the Aggies was their fifth of the season over a ranked team, which certainly helps with the computers, but probably won’t be enough with the pollsters, unless they look quite convincing in the SEC championship game while Ohio State either lose or look pretty bad against Michigan State. Missouri came out of nowhere, without a preseason ranking, which always hurts, but looking deeper into their record reveals that their wins were more a combination of perfect timing than actual being a powerhouse in the SEC East.
The Georgia Bulldogs are silently getting back into the groove and even in the college football rankings. With all the attention in the SEC, Georgia will always be part of the conversations.
Coming off from a win over Vanderbilt, 44-17, last Saturday, the Bulldogs are in the right track to compete and to capture the SEC East. However, there are so many things to improve if the Bulldogs want to…
