Summary

Following Missouri football is not for the faint of heart or for anyone who doesn't enjoy a good old authentic, rough-and-tumble, hard-working style of play. Among its faithful, love of the Tigers runs as deep as the Missouri River. This book travels from the Black and Gold's rugged roots--and its distaste of anything Kansas--to the amazing theatrics of dynamic quarterback Brad Smith. Along the journey there are stops at the creation of the national tradition of Homecoming, the doorsteps of legendary head coaches Don Faurot and Dan Devine, and the Orange, Sugar, and other prominent bowl victories. Relive the Tigers' incredible rise to national prominence during the tumultuous sixties, the exploits of the school's greatest players, and the traditions and pageantry that are distinctly Mizzou.

Author Biography

Brian Peterson has covered football as a writer and editor for the National Football League for the past fifteen years and has bled the Black and Gold of Missouri football since 1987. A former scholarship linebacker at Azusa Pacific University and walk-on defensive back at Mizzou, Peterson brings a wealth of football expertise and a passion for the sport to all of his projects that include hundreds of feature stories in magazines, newspapers, and on the Internet; radio commentary; and three books (Terrell Davis, 1001 Facts About Running Backs, and NFL Rules! Bloopers, Pranks, Upsets, and Touchdowns).
