In the Huddle: Mizzou needs to avoid a letdown

Recent history tells us there’s a pattern that follows Mizzou Football after big wins.

Take, for instance, arguably one of the best — if not the best — teams in Mizzou Football history, the 2007 Tigers. The team posted a 12-win season, finishing atop the Big XII North, bagged a decisive win over the then-ranked Jayhawks to go to No. 1 in the BCS standings, and finished one game away from playing for a national championship.

Still though, arguably the best football team in school history had a big let down. As one might remember, the Tigers finished 12-2 that season, losing only to Oklahoma, led by Sam Bradford and their high-powered offensive attack.
