It was a weird scene. A Gamecock fan tossed a bottle of water from the stands after a Missouri touchdown. Mizzou QB Drew Lock ran over and grabbed the bottle seeming to take a big swig. I always wondered why. Now I know.
Red-bearded, loudmouth linebacker Eric Beisel (38) likes to fire up his team by talking about opponents coming to Missouri and drinking their water. Lock listened to one too many of Beisel’s pre-game speeches. He figured it would be the ultimate to take a big slug of Gamecock water after a touchdown. He wasn’t trying to be funny. Lock was disrespecting us. Too bad he didn’t back it up with a W.
