Mizzou is not going to challenge in the SEC East but they have to be pleased with their performance thus far.
At 2-2 they are hardly world beaters but they have shown they can be competitive with the better teams on their schedule. I imagine they are getting LSU at the right time for this one too.
Enough was enough for LSU as they have parted ways with Les Miles. Coach Ed Orgeron is well respected and there is every reason to believe he can get more out of this team that what we have seen this season.
Quarterback is still an issue though.
Missouri has already had their leadership change with former DC Barry Odom taking over for long term coach Gary Pinkel.
Even if Pinkel was still around this was going to be a tough year as the Mizzou offense has really slid lately – don’t be fooled by the 79 points they put up against Delaware State last week.
QB Drew Lock shows promise but the one time he ha faced a significant defense this season he threw three interceptions in their one point loss to Georgia.
The Mizzou defense is once against strong.
They may not crank out NFL players like Alabama but they have an awesome reputation of developing edge rushers.
Charles Harris has three sacks already and LSU will have to make sure they get him blocked if their limited passing game is going to have any chance.
Against a strong running team, Georgia, Missouri allowed just 2.7 yards per carry. The defense will have to lay well to give the team a chance to win.
The season started with so much promise and now it is all about who is the next coach. I am a big fan of coach O and the odds are despite the unique situations he will have them hustling.
If they are doing that there is no reason this LSU team can’t win all of their remaining games, including the one against Alabama. I am not saying they will, I am just saying that it is possible despite the current state of the program.
Critical to those plans will be the health of RB Leonard Fournette.
He currently is questionable for this one and is a difference maker of course. Here is something interesting to note. Purdue is terrible but there are two ex Boilermakers starting for SEC teams right now.
How does that happen.
Danny Etling is no pro prospect but he is the best the Tigers seem to have right now and he can complete a pass down the field every once in a while.

Free Week 5 NCAA Football Prediction
This is a tough game to read. Both teams play pretty good defense and with the change at LSU it is possible they just fall flat. Plus the injuries and the fact that Orgeron is a defense guy.
That LSU offense is an unknown.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Mizzou
If this were a better Mizzou team this would be a great spot to forecast an upset. Their defense is good enough to pull it off but their offense is a tough to forecast, especially against a team like LSU.
Before you get down you have to know if Fournette is going to be on the field but this is looking like a cover for the Tigers to me…that would be the Mizzou Tigers.
