Mizzou Traditions – The ‘M’

One of the hallmarks of Memorial Stadium, home to the Missouri Tigers, is the large white ‘M’ above the north endzone.

The ‘M’ is made of whitewashed rock and stands 90 feet wide and 95 feet high. Since 1927, the big M has made its home just north of Faurot Field. Each fall, Mizzou freshmen paint the rocks to make them sparkling white, and at the end of each football season, senior football players take a rock to remind them of their times in black and gold.

So next time you’re at a Mizzou game, take a moment to admire the big ‘M’ at Memorial Stadium, a Tiger tradition for nearly 100 years!

Now, Truman is in it to win it with the Capital One Mascot Challenge. In his first round match up, Truman takes on the Scarlet Knight from Rutgers. While Truman has a commanding lead right now, he’ll need the help of Tiger nation throughout the season to come out on top. So, what we’re trying to say is…

VOTE NOW!

And, as always, go Tigers!

Get Your Gameday Gear!

One of the main traditions at Memorial Stadium is to Wear Gold. We all have that favorite black and gold sweatshirt, but maybe it’s time for some new game day gear.

The first stop you should make (online or while you’re in Columbia) is the Tiger Team Store. The physical location is adjacent to the football stadium and is open on game days, but you can also get a huge variety of items online to pack and bring with you.

Ranging from simple:

Also in Columbia is Tiger Spirit, Jock’s Nitch and Rally House…all stocked from top to bottom with Mizzou game day gear. You can also check out our Pinterest ┬áto explore our Tiger themed boards. No matter where you do your shopping, get your gold on and be ready to cheer loud!
