The grades are in

The Tigers lost for the first time on Saturday, 41-31 to Oklahoma. Where did things go well and where do they have to improve? PowerMizzou.com hands out its grades:

Quarterback

Chase Daniel was good if you look at the numbers. 37-for-47, 367 yards, on the surface, you'd take that any day. But Daniel wasn't anywhere near what he was against Nebraska last Saturday. He threw two interceptions that he simply forced. He seemed, at times, a little indecisive, though that probably had to do with the lack of time he was provided to throw. Most damaging was that the game plan did not seem to include anything with Daniel running the ball. He becomes far less effective if he's not on the move. Overall, he was okay, but Missouri needs better than okay out of Daniel to win.

Final Grade: C+
