Mizzou to the Citrus Bowl

Mizzou to the Citrus Bowl

Ever since the Missouri Tigers Football team came back from Atlanta, talk about the back-to-back reigning SEC East Champions has been minimal.

On December 7, Gary Pinkel and his Tigers were told they would be headed to Orlando, Fl. to take on Minnesota in the 2014 Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl on New Year's Day. Coming off of a tough loss to number one Alabama in the SEC Championship the week before, this is a great opportunity for the Tigers to bounce back and end the season with their third consecutive Bowl win.       

Just a short week after returning from Atlanta, Ga., the Tigers resumed practice in preparation for New Year's Day. Gary Pinkel explained that after a week off, his team was excited to get back on the field.   

“You know, it’s been a week since we played, so it’s a lot of enthusiasm for the kids too, they’re excited about it,” Pinkel said.  

With a couple players recovering from the last game, Pinkel believes everyone will be healthy and back to practicing soon.   

“You want to get your body back, but this is the fun part of the year,” explained QB Maty Mauk. “I mean, this is what you work for and it’s gonna be fun!”   

“The main thing for us is we want to come out here and have fun, but at the same time, get better,” said Mauk.   

The Golden Gophers of Minnesota finished this past season 8-4, 2nd in the western division of the Big Ten Conference. 2014 was yet another successful year for the Missouri Tiger Football team, and what better way to break in 2015 and the season ahead than a trip to Orlando with the chance to bring another title back to Columbia?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
