Albany receiver Mossed a kitty at the loss at MSU.
Sucks that Moss and ESPN didn’t recognize what Toure’ accomplished. At least the damn Cats got “Mossed.”

Doesn’t surprise me.

Moss hates the Griz. He said as much in his 30 for 30 documentary when discussing his playing days at Marshall.

Doesn't surprise me either.

Moss has one of the biggest egos in the business. You really expect him to admit someone else took his record?

Being recognized by the same guy who got arrested for purposely assaulting a traffic cop with his car & pissed away scholarships at major schools because he couldn’t keep his shit together. Who cares if this college clown car driver recognizes him or not? Samori is head & shoulders the better person & teammate.

ESPN did recognize him, & Palmer did a great job.

Not only did Toure beat Moss’ record, Randy has nothing on Samori’s hair. “Mic drop”

That segment is about recognizing great catches made that were heavily contested where the reciever goes up and over the top of the defender. Its become a pop culture term. Getting "Moss'd". It has nothing to do with an overall statistical performance.

If anyone deserved to be featured during that segment it would've been the SLU player who made the one handed catch with Dareon Nash draped all over him. But again he didnt go up and over the defender.


Everyone relax. Sheesh.

Did you miss the last record breaking catch for a TD, Toure Moss’d that SLU CB. Poor kid couldn’t deny him the end zone.

You mean hall of famer, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest wide receivers ever.
The guy has done numerous off the field charity events around the country.
Yeah he did some bonehead things when he was younger, but alot of us did also.
Like him or not you can't discredit his credentials.

Moss helped the receivers, including Mariani when he was a rookie with the Titans, and Mariani said Moss was a good guy.

That wasnt even close to being "Moss'd" per definition of the segment.

That was getting torched. Samori had at least 10 yards separation and had to slow up for an underthrown ball. Samori was beating that kid so bad all game long the last thing he had to do was "Moss" anyone.

Actually Moss never said that himself in the 30for30, someone said Randy said it. And I know this, Marc Mariani raved about what a good dude Moss was the year they were on the Titans together.

I thought it was cool on the last episode where Moss’s kid was featured. A big time catch in a big time game. That said, Toure’ deserved at least a shout out on the segment.

Not unreasonable at all for them to at least mention Toure's notable afternoon.

Actually Toure's day got blown up on ESPN Saturday night on both Sportscenter and College Football Final. And to be reasonable, Monday Night Countdown is an NFL show. Yes, Moss does a college game You Got Mossed every once in a while, but, the show is about NFL football and the Monday night game. If Randy wanted to acknowledge Toure breaking his record, he has plenty of other platforms he could also do it on. His Twitter, his podcast or his radio show.

Bottom line though, Toure got more coverage on ESPN this weekend than any individual player from the FCS I've seen in quite some time.

Just would have been cool if Moss would have at least said Moss got Mossed by Toure. Congrats Kid! I say this being a Minnesota Vikings fan!

You are conflating talent and character. He seems to have high marks in one and low marks in the other.

Using your logic Goebbels was a great guy because he had a flair for marketing.
