A year removed from allowing only 302 ypg (2nd SEC), Missouri's defense has taken a significant step back. Two weeks ago, LSU rolled up 634 yards (7.7 ypp) in a 42-7 win Baton Rouge. During the bye week, the players met with defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross to
about Cross's complex system. The Tigers travel to Gainesville this Saturday to face Florida. The Gators are currently -13.5/-14 favorites while the total was hammered up to 50.5.
“Sometimes everyone’s just frustrated but nobody’s talking about how to make it better,” MU middle linebacker Michael Scherer said. “And nothing ever gets better.”
“He wanted to know how we felt,” Scherer said. “He wanted to know how he could contribute to help us play better. He’s not (saying), ‘My way or the highway.’ He’s listening to us. He’s taking opinions from us.”
Safety Thomas Wilson added: “He just asked us how we felt things were going. A lot of guys said a lot of good things.”
