MIZ-ery loves company.
We’re sorry, Missouri fans. We know this season is miserable. The Tigers have lost four consecutive games to drop to 1-4. Thank goodness for Ole Miss or Missouri would be the SEC’s dumpster fire by a mile.
Unfortunately for the Tigers, a road game against Georgia on Saturday is next on the schedule. It just so happens that the Bulldogs are one of the country’s top teams. Most expect Missouri to be flattened by the time Barry Odom’s squad escapes Athens.
SEC Network analysts Greg McElroy and Marcus Spears broke down the matchup in a cool, casual way. But near the end of their conservation about the topic, McElroy made a quip about Missouri’s chances between the hedges, all while mentioning the show’s sponsor.
“I think it’s going to be a tall order,” McElroy said. “The only way Missouri has a chance to win? If they stay at a Holiday Inn Express before the game. That’s the only chance they have.”
As you’ll remember, Holiday Inn Express has been known for creative commercials that humorously suggest people can “feel smarter” by staying at the hotel.
Oh, Missouri. To watch the full segment featuring McElroy and Spears, click below:
