Black & Gold Weekend a HUGE Success!
The recent Black & Gold weekend that included a TQBC Golf Tournament & Auction, the Spring Game where the new Mizzou uniforms were unveiled, and the TQBC Luncheon will long be remembered as an incredible time to be a Tiger!
One of the highlights of the weekend was the number of former players who participated. At the Black & Gold Golf Tournament, there was over 60 Years of Mizzou Football history represented!
The Black & Gold Golf Tournament, and the associated auction, raised over $20,000 in support of the football team; a new record! Thank you to everyone who donated time, resources, and effort to make this event a success. Special thanks to all those who played in the golf tournament and participated in the auction!

The anticipation of seeing the new Nike branded uniforms had Mizzou nation buzzing for the past few months. The response to the unveiling has been very positive, and much excitement has been expressed about the incredible new look and features of the uniforms. It seemed Equipment Director Don Barnes was every where over the past couple of weeks telling the fascinating stories behind the development of the new designs.
Finally, guests at the Black & Gold Luncheon were able to see the new uniforms up close and personal as Mr. Barnes told those in attendance about them. Long time TQBC supporter Chuck Everitt made a surprise appearance as the newest Tiger player! The team donated one of the first new helmets to the club and it was subsequently auctioned off to local real estate broker Vicky Shy. (Thanks for your support, Vicky!)
Coach Pinkel shared his thoughts on the progress of the team, and answered questions about injury updates, the SEC transition, and much more. Coach displayed his passion for Mizzou football once again, and left the membership fired up for the start of another season!
We’d like to express our sincere thanks to everyone involved with all the Black & Gold activities this weekend. The TQBC Board of Directors, along with many volunteers, did an amazing job with the golf tournament despite some weather issues. Many people at Mizzou were also instrumental in helping with the tournament and arranging for former players to participate. Thank you for your help!
