Tuesday's Top Tigers

Tuesday's Top Tigers makes its return to PowerMizzou.com for one final 2008 appearance. A player's ranking one week has no bearing on his placement on the list the next week. This is our list of the 11 Tigers who had, in our opinion, the best performances in the 30-23 Alamo Bowl win over Northwestern:

Tuesday's Top Tigers
RANK PLAYER THE ANALYSIS LAST WEEK
1 Sean Weatherspoon, LB The best individual defensive performance of the season, and no others are close. N/A
2 Jeremy Maclin, WR His punt return kept Missouri in a game that should probably already have been over. As he has been nearly every time in the last two years, Maclin was the best player on the field. NR
N/A Jake Harry, P In the off-season, he was the biggest question mark. Answered. Harry might have been the MVP, pinning Northwestern deep to give an offense that was sputtering multiple chances. N/A
4 Ziggy Hood, DT More than any other Tiger, he had to turn the heads of NFL scouts last night. Best performance of the year. N/A
5 Chase Coffman, TE Statistically, he was not great, but he caught everything within his reach. Amazing, amazing player. N/A
6 Jeff Wolfert, K So he missed one. It happens, even to the best ever. An underrated aspect of this game was his kickoffs, including the touchback that pinned Northwestern at the 20 in the final minutes. N/A
7 Stryker Sulak, DE If Sulak can harness that effort and bring it on a consistent basis, somebody's getting a steal on draft day. N/A
8 Brock Christopher, LB He was overshadowed by Spoon, but Christopher turned in a heck of an effort and nearly had two picks. N/A
9 Brian Coulter, DE The offsides penalties were maddening, but Coulter made plays. You're starting to see some of the evidence that created all the summer hype. NR
10 William Moore, S Tough first quarter, but Moore probably shouldn't have even played as much as he did this season. And on the two biggest plays of the game, Moore was in on both. N/A
11 Danario Alexander, WR It may have been only three catches, but Alexander looked as good and as confident as he has all season. N/A
