SEC 50 Players In 50 Days: T.J. Moe

+Read full article

The Southeastern Conference media days are in the last day, which signifies the countdown to kickoff for most average college football fans.  Today we reach the 42 day mark and the 42nd player on our Rant Sports, SEC:  50 Players in 50 Days preview.  Today we take a look at Missouri wide receiver T.J. Moe.

T.J. Moe, WR, Missouri:

The Missouri Tigers will begin play in the SEC in September 2012 and I’m sure the faithful in Columbia can’t be more excited.  The Tigers will compete in the SEC Eastern division and honestly, the east is wide open and Mizzou has as good a chance as anyone to make it to Atlanta.  A big reason why, is quarterback James Franklin.  Franklin dazzled the Big 12 in 2011 as he accounted for 36 touchdowns.  Those are huge numbers.  Franklin is also a dual threat, who is just as dangerous running as he is passing.

When Franklin goes to the air, his main target will be T.J. Moe.  Moe is coming off a 2011 season in which he caught 54 passes for 649 yards and had four touchdowns.  Moe is eighth all time in Tiger history with 148 catches.  Although Moe’s 2011 numbers were solid, he would like to have another year like he did in 2010, where he had 93 receptions for 1,094 yards.

Moving into the SEC, Moe should be just as effective as he was in the Big 12.  Missouri predicates their passing game off of matchups and getting Moe, in the slot, one-on-one versus linebackers and safeties.  This will be huge for the Tiger offense.  Moe is also a threat in the return game and should rack up some yards as a punt returner.

The Tigers have some talent returning off a team that finished 8-5 in 2011.  The offense should be a little better with three offensive linemen returning.  A big loss is tailback Henry Josey, whose 1100 plus yards will be gone since he suffered a knee injury and  is expected to miss the entire 2012 season.
