A Tiger Through and Through

That young man is none other than MDA's own Dr Michael Bennett. He played defense for Dan Devine and the Missouri Tigers back in the late 1960's. It was a heyday for Missouri football as the Tigers and Dr Bennett played Bear Bryant in the Gator Bowl and Joe Paterno in the Orange Bowl. You can hear about it firsthand by listening to this interview
Dr Bennett did with Gary Link before the Missouri- Ole Miss game last weekend. Thank you Learfield Sports for the audio.
As fate would have it, I have seen Dr Bennett at road games in Knoxville and Nashville. He is a true Tiger and he must be enjoying this recent revival of good fortune for the football team.
With a win over Texas A&M this weekend, the Missouri Tigers will advance to the SEC Championship game in just their second year in the conference. It's possible that their opponent will be the Auburn Tigers. That's where my good will ends. As an Auburn graduate, I am also a Tiger through and through. But let's cross that bridge when we come to it. For now, I have nothing but pride and joy for Dr Bennett and his Missouri Tigers. M- I- Z....!
