Forever a Tiger: Brad Smith

Bowl season is upon us, and when thinking of Mizzou’s bowl games, Brad Smith’s last career game as a Tiger in the 2005 Independence Bowl, has to go down as the greatest in school history.

The game was a microcosm of Smith’s record-setting career – one which resurrected the Mizzou football program, and a great story-book ending to it. Smith was a one-man show in giving us one of the greatest single-game bowl performances in college football history. Smith seemingly single-handedly brought Missouri back from two 21-point deficits (21-0, 28-7) and willed the Tigers to victory, accounting for 432 of Missouri’s 504 yards of total offense – an amazing 86% of the offense – and for four touchdowns in the Tigers’ 38-31 comeback victory.

If you are interested in the entirety of the game, you can see it here in a 47 minute video.

Gary Pinkel has been on record as saying this one game saved his career, as the Tigers did not go to a bowl the year before, and a bowl loss would have put the Tigers at 6-6.

Many say it is Chase Daniel, but I think there is no doubting that Brad Smith is the integral figure in turning around the football program. He is the most important player in the Gary Pinkel-era. Brad Smith put Mizzou back on the map, and without Brad Smith, there is no Chase Daniel.

Oh, and he ain’t that bad in the NFL, either.

Boeing’s market value has evaporated by more than $25 billion since last month’s fatal crash on a 737 MAX aircraft from Ethiopian Airlines.

  37. The conversation about fertility—whether you’re thinking about kids in the near future or not—is still plagued by anxiety-inducing messages that keep women up at night picturing a ticking biological clock. Women deserve better—no fear mongering,Jordan just facts. So Glamour took the pulse of what women do and don’t know about their reproductive health to bring you the Modern State of Fertility.
