Missouri fires defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross

After giving up 74 points in two weeks, the Missouri Tigers have fired defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross.

Here was Mizzou’s official release:

To put it simply, the Tiger defense has been absolutely putrid to start the year.

Missouri heads to Kroger Field in three weeks, where I highly doubt the team’s defense drastically improves by then. If the first two weeks are any indication of the Tigers’ season success, the Wildcats are going to have an absolute field day with them.

Come on down, fellas.

      Missouri State put up 43 points on Mizzou, and then lost to North Dakota 34-0 the following week. Yes, a field day.

      Our history suggests we rarely have a “field day” with an SEC foe but if you say so. Hope you are right.

    Our offense was drastically better in the 2nd half once we cancelled the wildcat.

      I’m not sure drastically better is right… we put up less than WKU did. TO AN FCS TEAM!

      An FCS team that has basically a first string made of transfers from division 1 teams. It’s not like EKU is a team of scrubs

      They aren’t good. Spin it how you want. Not even good at their level.

    • KYcats, true, but to be fair, last year we had played Florida in week 2, not a 1AA school. We’ll have to play a lot better this Saturday against SC. Hopefully we will. I had forgotten we played poorly against Austin Peay the very week before we beat UL last year. Matt mentioned it in the post game.

      CATS!!!

    The second half Offense looked more like what Eddie Gran was trying to bring to Kentucky at the start of last year.

      He wants to throw it. That’s why they still think Barker may be the best option. Couldn’t tell Saturday because he played while the o-line was still trying to figure it out.

    Let’s hope. Is their defense worse than EKU? If not, we won’t be having a field day.
