Mizzou Football Discipline Philosophy

“One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it’s worth watching.”

What do you do when no one else is looking?

Discipline is what you do when no one else is looking! It’s being considerate of the other person. Having good personal habits: you are polite, on time, and take care of business with pride. We must be disciplined as individuals first, and then as a team.
