Using archived photographs, game films and video highlights MizzouRah! puts Tiger fans back in their seats for action sequences of some of the most remarkable plays in Missouri history. See "Pitchin'" Paul Christman lead the Tigers to national prominence with an upset victory at Yankee Stadium. Be there when Don Faurot revolutionizes college football with his Split-T formation, the granddaddy of all option offenses. Relive the final moments of Faurot's "most thrilling" victory, including the astonishing game-winning play. Join the Tigers for their first undefeated season, first-ever No. 1 ranking and their crushing victory over Navy in the Orange Bowl. Return to Faurot Field, Ohio Stadium, Legion Field and the Los Angeles Coliseum as the Tigers establish themselves as college football's "giantkillers" of the 70s. Watch Tiger speedster Joe Stewart as he streaks by Nebraska defenders en route to the longest scoring play from scrimmage in Big Eight history. Rejoice with thousands of Faurot Field fans as they celebrate the 2003 win over Nebraska, ending the 25-year Husker drought. MizzouRah! also looks back to the disappointing - yet undeniably memorable - Tiger defeats. Watch as Colorado's 1990 "Fifth Down" and Nebraska's 1997 "Flea-Kicker" unfold before your eyes. Relive these memorable moments and many more in this "must-have" for any Tiger fan.

The book takes about 30 games in Mizzou's football history and relives them. Pictures from what appears to be game films help bring the chapters to life. And some of those pictures are ones I've never seen before.
If you were at the game, you'll recall it in detail with the help of the book. If you weren't at the game, you'll come close to feeling that you were.
Even some of the cheerleaders are featured in the chapter about the origin of the M-I-Z Z-O-U cheer.
If you're a Missouri football fan you've got to get the book or ask someone to give it to you as a present. You won't regret it.
Filled with terrific images and interviews this book looks at inspiring wins and lamentable losses by talking with some of the key players and coaches associated with the games.
Even if you are a life-long MU Tiger fan - as I am - you'll probably learn something from the various chapters covering Mizzou football from Pitchin' Paul Chrisman to Brad Smith to the legendary Don Faurot, who created the Split-T formation that revolutionized college football for decades.
This would make a great Holiday gift. It should be considered a "must-have" by all MU Tiger fans.
