Josh Henson: 8.22 (season average 7.30)
20 points in the first quarter is always a good strategy
A good game plan to start the game.
Balanced play calling...again
can't complain about anything here
Couldn't ask for much more. After the one punt, he goes for the throat and succeeds.
Dont take the foot off the gas petal
Every week I like the gameplan more and more from Henson
Great game plan. Maybe took the foot off the gas too early, but hard to complain about the results.
Great play calling all around
His scheme made the Vandy D look almost Lawrence worthy.
I <3 Josh Henson
I am SO NOT MISSING YOST.
I don't care if I skew the numbers, I'm giving 9s across the board for that win! Not picking on anyone today!
I loved going deep after the on-side kick.
I loved the aggressive play calling. Nothing like not having to actually punt till the Ninth drive eh?
It's hard not to like how multiple the offense is right now. If you're a DC what do you try to take away?
Kneeling with 22 seconds in the first half? That's a paddlin'. Punting once in the 4th quarter? You better believe that's a paddlin.
Like the speed option and the shots taken between the hashes.
Love his playcalling, Mizzou's undefeated. Coincidence?
Love the offense Saturday. I knew sneaky ol' Henson was planning something with those TEs. Just awesome the way this offense responded to everything Vandy threw at us.
Loved the speed option, emphasis on receivers between the hashes.
Next head coach?
One nitpicky thing. Too conservative up big, decidedly different after onside kick. But you know...it was Vandy.
Play-action bootleg to Waters - Pretty
Seems to be very adapt at knowing other teams defensive schemes. Very impressed, although still too soon.
So reminiscent of the Christensen days
The 4th Quarter TD drive that lasted 10 seconds after Vandy had a quick strike was a nice fu moment.
the Josh Henson era is fun
TOO MANY FGs! -Mac6
Uses all of his playmakers, great game
Very clear he was hoding something back vs Arky Lite
You get a 9!
James Franklin: 8.40 (season average: 7.70)
4 TD, 0 INT, started 10/11. Talk about a heck of a first quarter
absolute gem of a game by JF1, has to keep it up now
Another great showing, would wish he would maybe lead with his throwing shoulder less
As nearly a flawless performance as we've ever seen from him. Hard to criticize anything he did.
At some point, Franklin needs to start earning recognition for his play. Top 3 QB in the SEC?
Best game of his career?
Best game of the year in my eyes
GREAT game, James! Take that, haters!
He is taking his step forward. Can he stay focused? Can he keep Missouri on schedule if Georgia successfully stones the run?
He's tanks too recklessly, could easily be the first offensive player to be flagged for targeting
I was never this pleased with Gabbert. Chase Daniel levels of joy watching him ball
In control, almost a like daniels like
Is this the same guy we saw wearing #1 last year? He's matured a lot in the last 8 months.
It tastes like burning
James brought back home the James Franklin Trophey! However, in all seriousness he was pretty spectacular.
JTF was DENMONEY-ish in the first half, then damn good in the 2nd half. As Matter said, 4th highest rated game in MIZZOU history.
Keep it going
Made some gusty throws.
No errors of consequence
Not much to complain about with Franklin..efficient in both the run/pass game
only because of the out pass
Only the fumbles were bad. -Mac6
Tanklin continues his reign of terror, and it's beautiful
Tanklin's the man. He does well, the team does well.
The offense is once again fun to watch thanks to Frank the tank
What more can you ask?
What's not to like?
You get a 9!
All good. Josey quietly keeps racking up TD's.
All three running backs admirably marched the ball down the demarcated field of play.
Don't think Josey warrants more touches than either of the other two.
I choo choo choose you. All of you.
I think Hansbrough is the most complete of the 3, but each brings something juuuuust different enough to be interesting. Also, all 3 are at least proficient in the passing game.
Its a three headed monster that leads the SEC
Josey does not warrant more touches than the other two.
Josey is (still) a stud, Hansbrough went largely unnoticed either way, I love Murph's speed
Josey is back but still doesnt seem 100
Josey ran like it was a conference game, Murph made the most of his carries
Josey: 2 TDs, Hansbrough gets robbed of one. Murphy couldn't pull away from a defender but I won't dock him too much.
keeping it going. Looks like Josey is BACK
Love those 3 backs. Doesn't matter who totes the rock.
Maybe this is the best group, instead of the WRs?? -Mac6
MM still is quiet in the return game- have to wonder if that is partially gameplan on the part of the other team?
Okay, Hansbrough & DGB only get 8s because they didn't get their TDs!
OUTLAW, 2 TDs and running people over. Exceptional performance as a unit again.
RB by committee. Love it.
So fun to watch how different all 3 are
Still love the "interchangeable" running back scheme. All looked good.
The court case of Vanderbelt vs The Law Firm of Josey, Hansbrough, and Murphy was on air for a large part of the SEC to see. Lets just say we all know who won that case.
They are fun to watch.
Very solid all around
We will have all three of these guys back again next year?! If I'm dreaming, don't wake me up.
What do we have to complain about these three? More touchdowns?
You get a 9, and you get a 9, and you get a 9!
L'Damian Washington: 8.23 (season average: 7.20)
Marcus Lucas: 7.54 (6.97)
Jimmie Hunt: 6.64 (6.07)
Bud Sasser: 6.47 (5.69)
Dorial Green-Beckham: 6.30 (7.29)
Darius White: 5.55 (5.71)
Jaleel Clark: 5.52 (5.63)
An argument could be made that LD is becoming the go to.
Best collection of receivers in the SEC
DGB and Frank were a little off but Lucas and Washington had great games. Clicking along quite nicely
DGB was MIA
DGB was stuck with one of the best corners in the SEC. Glad we're loaded... every else showed up.
DGB where art thou? Marcus Lucas keeps taking big steps. LDW with a monstrous day and becoming almost the #1 WR. Jimmie likes catching passes.
DGB: Greatest 5-star decoy of all time.
Great hands, a lot of good downfield blocking. No complaints here.
Hunt is my favorite non-star on a team since Chase Daniel's NFL career
I know DGB wasn't much of a factor, but our team is much more dangerous when we spread it out like this.
If Washington and Lucas can deliver that each week... Dang.
It's not about any one of them, it's about all of them.
L'Damian is playing out of his mind right now
LDW is the best guy right now.
LDW is the man
Lucas and Washington were exceptional. DGB was very good, seem to be used as a decoy most of 2nd half, really good group performance
Lucas made some great catches, and Wash just kept getting open. DGB was okay. -Mac6
Lucas really impressed me, hope he can continue to play big like that.
NO DGB TD PLAYS!!! RAGE!!! WARGABBLE!!! However actually being serious its really nice to see that if they try to shut down one reciever they have to deal with the other 2-3 on the field and that they usually can't
Not much from DGB, L'Damian should have been even more impressive in the numbers without an illegal shift penalty, surprised at the lack of Darius White this year
Not too bad, a couple 'not on the same page' type of things with Tanklin but that should come later after facing different defenses
Still routing for Darius to get a couple touches
Tall, Athletic, pretty much everything Jay Billas wants in a basketball player. All showing great hands
These guys are ridiculously talented. I was impressed most by the tough catches that were made.
Tough catch by Lucas on that TD grab
Washington and Lucas were impressive
What a catch by Lucas, way to turn around his reputation for stonehands. L'DW! That was a fine catch-and-roll for a score in Q1
With the way Franklin is rolling, its not about any single WR, its about all of them.
You all get 9's!
And now, there's these guys. Because we were running low on passing targets.
Anyone know why Culkin is such a non-factor after the early indications he would be?
Cancel the missing persons report for the tight ends
Culkin may deserve a better rating, if he's mainly being used as a blocker. Waters getting into Jimmie Hunt territory with the Catch/TD ratio. Whether Waters TD was the result of a blown coverage, exceptional play calling or superior TE getting open skills, it was awesome.
Eric Waters balling out, at least as much as a TE has this year
Good to see Waters get involved in catching passes. Just need to keep on keepin' on.
Great block. Waters was BIG in the passing game.
Great blocking and CATCHING?!?!? What?
Great too see these guys get involved!
Guess I was right, seeing all this crazy TE stuff in SEC play . However I still can't help but feel "Hey!!! TE's!!!!!"
Hopefully the Vandy game is a hint of what is coming (more play action and TE in the seams)
If I could submit 10's I would!
If you are a TE and you catch a TD pass I give you an 8.
it's cool that the TE's can catch
Love the TE involvement
Maybe there is no moral. Maybe it's just a bunch of stuff that happened.
Mizzou is undefeated when Eric Waters scores a TD
TEs are back!
The TEs may play a BIG role versus the Dawgs.
There's the receiving TE we've been hearing about!
THEY DO EXIST!
Waters for a TD! Culkin I'm sure had a good game but won't get noticed until he gets some stats.
We do have TE's and Vanderbilt had no clue
We do have tight ends! Welcome back Eric Waters. -Mac6
Who could it be now
Yay we have TEs again!
6 yds per carry and only 2 sacks allowed..good effort
8s on down the line. Franklin had time for most of the night, and they opened up some running lanes that likes of which we hadn't seen since the great Dismemberment in Lincoln.
All 8's and a 9 for Mad Max for getting Josey's back when a Vandy guy tried to play dirty.
All did great for the most part
Decent time in the pocket, big running holes and getting push in short yardige.
Dominating O-line performance, held the pocket, pushed around vanderbilts d-line looked really good
Everyone gets 9's!
Excellent preformance line. I'm sure there is still work that needs to be done but it was still a wonderful preformance
Franklin had mostly all day, running game was great, overall wonderful
Good health is always a blessing.
Good health is always a blessing. Never fail to be thankful when you have it.
Great game. Boehm.... please stay all 4 years.
Great protection, would like bigger running lanes, but fantastic cohesion
Great work from the O Line!
McNulty, please dont let let a linebacker hit me like that again...please
OL was great except for McNulty, who wasn't paying attention and ready to go in when a sub was needed and then looked clueless when out there
Opened holes, kept the D off JF... can't complain about much. -Mac6
Played about as well as anyone could expect. Fantastic to see them all (mostly) healthy and able to contribute.
QB protection! Woohoo!!
The holes for Josey, Murph, Mansbrough. The protection for JTF. I'll give best position group performance to these guys over the D-line.
The only reason the line is getting 8s rather than 9s is because we do have a decent number of zero yardage and negative plays. We are giving up some penetration. We're hitting homers but striking out a bit too.
Think it was McNulty who got Franklin killed / Boehm had a penalty
Total monsters. Morse, in particular, just pounded the Vandy D-linemen in to the ground.
