Missouri Tigers: 2011 Season Exit Survey

Missouri Tigers: 2011 Season Exit Survey

Hyped by on January 29, 2012 Website: www.collegefootballzealots.com

I was really high on Missouri coming into the season and so were the rest of the Zealots as we had them picked for 3rd place in the Big 12. As it would turn out, it would take Missouri a while to get it going in 2011. They started out just 4-5 against a very tough schedule (their first nine games included four top 25 teams and Baylor). Missouri closed strong by winning their final four games including a 17-5 win over Texas.

Missouri was led by first year starter James Franklin and he had a very good year for a first time starter. He passed for 2872 yards and 21 TDs vs 11 INTs. He also ran for 981 yards and 15 TDs and was the teams second leading rusher. Leading the team in rushing was Henry Josey. Josey broke out with 1168 yards in 10 games before having his season ended with a knee injury. I personally thought Missouri would be stronger on defense but they took a step back in points allowed (7.4 more allowed per game in 2011 vs 2010) and they also gave up 50 more yards passing per game. A stout defense will be key for them if they want to make their mark when they enter the SEC for the 2012 season. To review the 2011 Missouri season we caught up with Jason Madson. Make sure you follow him on Twitter and watch out for some work he will be doing with Optimum Scouting.
