Missouri is about to get a nice dose of SEC football, and it comes in the form of the SEC East favorite Georgia Bulldogs. No, the Dawgs didn’t look stellar in Week One, but they took care of business, topping Buffalo 45-23.
According to AJC.com, Tigers defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson feels like Mizzou will be receiving more of a Big Ten dose of football than SEC, stating:
“I watched that game. I turned it off, too. … It’s like watching Big Ten football. It’s old-man football.”
“If we execute, nobody in this league [the SEC] can touch us. Period.”
The last thing the Tigers want to do is give Georgia, and any other SEC team for that matter, bulletin board material.
Georgia head coach Mark Richt had the following to say regarding Richardson’s comments:
“’Old-man football?’ Well, I don’t know what he meant by that,” Richt said. “But bottom line is, we got to get after it and do what we do well, and they’ll be trying to stop everything we’re trying to get accomplished.
“It’s a huge game for them, no doubt,” Richt said. “It’s a huge game for us, too, though, because we’ve got our goals. And they’ve got their goals. Shoot, to me, it’s the biggest game of the year, no doubt. … It’s a monster game.”
It’ll be interesting to see the match-up this week in Columbia, MO. We will quickly find out if Mizzou can walk the walk, like Richardson claims.
