    2015 Missouri Tigers



    Coming off of Missouri's best year ever, finishing 13-1 and win their first BCS bowl ever, the Sugar Bowl, the Missouri Tigers look to turn some more heads and continue making headway towards the BCS National Championship.

    Offense: The Tigers lose several star players from last year's 13-1 squad. Heisman trophy winner Marcus Lucas graduated and leaves a void in the receiving corp that has not been seen since Mizzourah took over as head coach at Missouri. They have several talented young receivers, but not have the presence that Lucas had. Look for more of a distribution to 4-5 receivers this year. Another key loss was Senior 4 year starter James Franklin. Franklin was nothing short of spectacular his 4 years at Missouri and will go down as one of the great QBs here along side names like Chase Daniel, and Brad Smith. In his place is a redshirt freshman Anthony Hargrove, who has the potential to carry the torch, but may go through some growing pains. The offensive line loses big left tackle Nick Demien, but aside from that the entire offensive line returns intact. Look for Missouri to use this to their advantage and run the ball more to keep the pressure off of their freshman QB. Despite losing one of the two-headed monsters from the rushing attack last year, Missouri returns Senior starter Travis Schroeder and Junior Matt Newman looks to take over where Jakhari Gore left off. Look for these two backs to have very big years this year behind a veteran offensive line.

    Defense: Missouri is only returning one starter from the defensive line and will miss Prince Shembo at the MLB position the leading tackler on the team from last year FS J. Williams. Aside from the drop off at the defensive line I look for this to be an improved defense this year, especially with a much more seasoned secondary and linebacking corp. This is the third year in a row a true freshman will start at linebacker.
