IT’S EARLY SHIRTS AND PANTS DAY THIS IS NOT A DRILL
Mizzou has played Kentucky in Lexington – and lost – three times since the last victory in 2013. In all three games Missouri has worn black helmets, white jerseys, and gold pants.
The 2021 Missouri Tigers say “screw that noise” and have decided to go ALL WHITE EVERYTHING

Missouri last wore all white on Halloween last year when Dan Mullen threw a big ol’ cry baby fit and beat the hell out of the Tigers in the second half. Not good vibes but, hey, at least the stormtrooper look also got Gary Pinkel is final victory as Mizzou’s head coach over BYU in 2015.
Like every other college football program, the Tigers will be sporting a memorial token to recognize the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. Missouri has chosen a red “Never Forget” sticker that will be prominently displayed on the back of the helmet.
You know I hate white helmets but, if they must exist, then the all-whites are all right with me. I still maintain the road look of the mid-aughts – black helmet, white jersey and pants – was the cleanest, best look. But hey, what do I know.
What say you?
