Missouri is Han Solo

Han Solo stole the show when it came to Star Wars. The first three films were centered around Luke’s quest to be a Jedi Knight, but Han Solo was the character that everyone loved. He was the favorite despite not being the main attraction. It was unexpected surprise for George Lucas, and they ran with it to the bank.

Missouri shocked everyone when they ran away with the SEC East crown. Most thought that the former Big 12 school was going to be overmatched in the SEC after their disastrous 2012 season, but they surprised everyone in 2013 and they repeated the fear in 2014. Don’t be shocked if they don’t do it again this year.
