When there's nothing else to sell, there's always hope. We've combed through YouTube to find the best 34 season ticket videos. It's broken into three posts because if we put them all in one, it would take forever to load.
Teams featured in part 1: Kentucky, South Carolina, Northwestern, Missouri, Arizona, North Carolina State, Idaho, East Carolina, Louisiana Tech, Temple, Kansas State and New Mexico State.
Terrific poster from Missouri. The extreme horizontal format doesn't play well on the site, so this blogger suggests clicking the image and taking a look at the enlarged view.
As for the Tigers' 2012 season, it didn't go as planned. Injuries piled up and the team's depth was severely tested. In the end, Missouri finished 5-7 and missed the postseason for the first time since 2004.
But is this the surprise team of 2013? The Tigers have a realistic shot of starting 5-0. What follows — at Georgia, at home against Florida and South Carolina — will likely determine if Missouri has what it takes to be a contender in Eastern Division of the Southeastern Conference.
Alabama's LaMichael Fanning gets called for unnecessary roughness after power slamming Missouri running back Russell Hansbrough in the closing minutes of the Crimson Tide's 42-10 victory over the Tigers on Saturday in Columbia. The officials then look the other way when Missouri players rough up Fanning on the next two plays.
Wiz correspondent Greg Laughlin spent the weekend in Orlando, where he took in the Missouri-Central Florida game. The Tigers held on for a 21-16 victory at Bright House Networks Stadium before 35,835. That's about 10,000 empty seats for those of you scoring at home.

Missouri is moving to the Southeastern Conference and with it will come many unknowns. Will the Tigers rise to the challenge, or will playing in what is regarded as the nation's top conference knock the team down a notch? Then there's quarterback James Franklin, who is coming off surgery to repair a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder. Uncertainties aside, this should be fun for Missouri fans, who will get to see Georgia and Alabama at Faurot Field.
