COLUMBIA - While viewing Missouri’s penultimate football scrimmage of the spring this morning, Jack Smith, MU's resident TV promotion producer, gave a sneak peek at the theme of next year’s commercials.
“They told me enough of the smoke and mirrors,” Smith said, “that this year we’ve really got something to sell.”
So what you’ll get is a group of students daydreaming, to video highlights, of some of the biggest plays of last year’s 12-2 season. The kicker: One of the students says, “There’ll never be another season like that again,” and MU quarterback Chase Daniel and MU defensive lineman Ziggy Hood counter, “Don’t bet on it!”
Following are some of the key statistics from today's scrimmage, Missouri’s last before next Saturday’s Black & Gold Spring Game, which will be televised by ESPNU.
