Kenny Chesney appeared on ESPN College Gameday on October 4th when Gameday visited Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN, and he made some predictions about that day’s Missouri-Nebraska game that some Missouri players didn’t appreciate:

Plenty of national pundits have criticized Missouri’s beleaguered defense this season, but a country music singer might have delivered the most stinging rebuke.

[MU Linebacker Sean] Weatherspoon told reporters yesterday that no comments bothered the MU defense more than those uttered by country star Kenny Chesney on the ESPN “College GameDay” show back on Oct. 4, the day MU went on to throttle Nebraska 52-17.

“He knows nothing about football, and he was on the set talking all kinds of smack about us losing to Nebraska,” Weatherspoon said. “He’s not even a Nebraska grad or anything. He’s from Tennessee or something. I don’t know what he was talking about, but that gave us great motivation.”
