Mizzou pride was evident everywhere at their football team’s annual Black & Gold Game. Fans of all ages came flooding through the doors to see their team in the very early stages of their 2014 football campaign—a campaign quite hard to predict after the team lost so many key players and decided to cut Dorial Green Beckham. In DGB’s case however, fans seemed to be on the side of the team’s management.
“Definitely a good choice [to cut DGB]. It was a bad representation of Mizzou sports. We shouldn’t allow that to happen and I’m glad that they enforced it” said Nick McCoy, a freshman at Mizzou. Even with the loss of their star player, Mizzou fans remained confident that their team will perform next season.
“Even without DGB, Maty Mauk is pretty good with the deep ball and we got a couple of up and coming wide receivers so I think our offense will be pretty good” said Mike Klinge of the Tigers’ next season.
Even with all of the controversy around the football team recently, fans remained loyal to their team and optimistic about the future of their team. They hope that next season they will be wearing black and gold into January like they did this year.
