Mizzou players trade blows in practice

It's not too big a deal that Missouri defensive end Brad Madison injured himself in practice last Friday, since his broken middle finger won't keep him out of the lineup when the Tigers take on Iowa in the Insight Bowl Dec. 28.

But it certainly won't help the Tigers for their leader in sacks to play with a plate in his dominant hand, and the injury must sting Mizzou fans even worse when they read how it happened :
Madison broke the middle finger on his right hand in a practice scuffle ... Madison and senior defensive tackle Bart Coslet exchanged punches on two occasions during the practice and ultimately, after the second fracas, three teammates restrained Coslet from continuing the confrontation.
If it seems a little late in the year for the kind of overheated practice-field brawlin' that typically takes place during fall two-a-days, consider that head coach Gary Pinkel wasn't on hand to view Madison's and Coslet's shenanigans, having flown to New York to take part in the day's opening ceremony at NASDAQ.

The odds that either Madison's injury or one less-than-focused practice has any substantial impact on the Insight outcome are negligible. But it's also not the best statement about the seriousness of the Tigers' attitude towards their bowl game that the mice start playing games with each other's health the moment the cat steps away.

What I think you meant to say is "Isn't this the type of stuff that happens at Kansas?"

No, if this stuff happened at Kansas they would have a better football team.  They aren't even allowed to use foul language or see their girlfriends after 10 o'clock at night.   Have you ever seen a team so physically beaten up, scared, demoralized and dominated like the Jayhawk players looked during the last game at Arrowhead?   


Now their basketball team is a different story.   Their problem isn't practicing hard against one another, its chasing down terrified girls hiding in neighbor's home and battering them.


If anyone should withhold their trash talk in this topic, its a Kansas fan.

Seriously, did you really just write this crap?  You think Missouri isn't focused on Iowa.  What an idiot.  I can't believe you guys get paid to make up this garbage sometimes

StlTiger:  You took the words right out of my mouth.  Hey Kansan, shouldn't you hope that your conference wins its bowl games?  Making the conference look strong can improve preseason rankings, which could actually help your scrubby team's standing.  It kills me how idiotic people don't look at the big picture.

Just don't cry about the drug bust when Mizzou hands you a beatin. Heard the hawks will play on a dirt field next year the players snorted the lines and smoked the grass ha.ha.

Really?  Fighting with a fellow Defensive Tackle???  I played college ball and the defense is like a family, especially the D-Lines.  Would understand if it was an offensive lineman but what does that say about their DL unit as a "family"?

If these guys are fighting amongst themselves, then Iowa shouldn't have too much trouble with'em. Go Hawkeyes, and Screw Miz-Who!

Maybe they're just fired up and itching to get at Iowa??

 

Yea, I don't believe that either.
