It's football season, and that's evident by taking a look at the stands.This time of year sparks fans to buy, buy, buy.

"Fall is always a great time. People feel really excited about the university, and so you see a lot more of the insignia sales and apparel and gifts," Michelle Froese, PR manager for Student amd Auxiliary Services, said.

The school store almost completely sold out of gold t-shirts a few weekends ago for the "Gold Rush" game, and is expected to see the same caliber of sales for the "Black Out" game. 

"Gold Rushes" and "Black Outs" come and go from the shelves, but one item remains constant: the number 10 Chase Daniels jersey.  It's a week before homecoming and there is only one women's sized jersey left in the store. The jersey may be a bit pricer than other items at $55 dollars, but people still rush to get their own number 10 jersey.

"I think that anyone would spend that. I know my one friend got it at the Tiger Spirit store down town, so I don't think that the price is an issue-but I really think it helps being able to student charge it," Kate Borges, MU sophomore, said.

Student charge may be one reason for high sales, but there might be a bigger reason for the spike.

"The more you're in the media, the more you're going to get noticed, the more people are going to like you-you know, that's just how it goes," Chase Daniel, MU quarterback, said.

"I think that as they continue to do well, you're just going to see more jerseys selling," Froese said.

Mizzou may be a quarterback driven team, but one can't help but wonder what other Mizzou numbers would also sell.

"I think all of them. I mean they all play, they all put in the same work ethic as me-some put in more, I mean so...They're equally deserving of it, but I guess Nike just chose mine," Daniel, a junior at MU, saidTons of jerseys fly off the rack each year...but the players don't see any of the monetary profit..."We get paid our scholarships checks...and that's the point," said Daniel.But...a dollar amount isn't what excites the Tiger quarterback... "It's definitely, definitely weird when you go out there and see tens of thousands of people wearing your jersey," said Daniel.You might see number 10 in large sizes...pint-sizes...and maybe even in pink...But, this number 10 plans to play Texas Tech this Homecoming weekend...where a high-scoring game might boost more than just morale...Kelsey Mezzenga, KOMU Sports Columbia.Mizzou's university bookstore re-stocked its racks with number 10 jerseys for the homecoming weekend.
