    Comments Off on The Big Show: Gary Pinkel

    Mizzou football coach Gary Pinkel joined Matt and BK on The Big Show to discuss his football team as we are less than 24 hours away from the start of fall camp. We asked Pinkel about his expectations for the wide receivers, the importance of Terry Beckner Jr. contributing early and we find out how involved Coach will be in the south end zone complex. All of that and more in our conversation.

     

    PODCAST:

    Some highlights from our conversations with Coach Pinkel:
    “There are a lot of similarities defensively…. I think we’ll become a little bit more multiple.”

    “Opportunities open up with stuff like (Harold Brantley’s injury)…I think that’s exciting for everybody.”

     

    Is Connor McGovern still expected to start at left tackle? “Yeah, I think we’ll do that.”

     

    “We have a lot of (offensive linemen) that have played a lot… Now it’s about who plays where.”

     

    “The best teams I’ve had are really good on both sides of the football.”

     

    “I think Ish Witter is going to be involved (in the RB rotation). There’s no question about that.”

     

    “We’re seeing Morgan Steward look much better. That’s a huge change in the past 2 months.”

     

    Morgan Steward is “one of the best young running backs I’ve seen here.”

     

    “Russell Hansbrough is one of the great running backs in this league. I think he’s proven that.”

     

    “We’re definitely playing (Chase Abbington) at running back.”

     

    “We used to go 2 TE roughly 70% of the time (with Rucker & Coffman). Culkin & Reese are also very talented.”

    Comments Off on The Big Show: Booger McFarland

    Booger McFarland of the SEC Network joined Matt and BK to explain why he still has some questions about Mizzou’s defensive line and wide receivers. Plus, Booger’s thoughts on the Mizzou secondary, the offensive line, and the player Booger calls the best in the SEC at his position.

    All of that and more in our conversation with former SEC defensive lineman & current ESPN college football analyst, Booger McFarland.

    Interview Highlights:

    “When you get to CoMo, you start hearing about ‘Mizzou Made’… I was blown away by that.”

    “Harold Brantley could have been the defensive player of the year in this conference. That’s how good he is.”

    “I know Coach Kul is an outstanding coach… But football is not about x’s and o’s. It’s about Jimmy’s & Joes.”

    “I would love to see (Josh Augusta) shed a few pounds… The stamina factor could be something that hurt him a bit.”

    “I think (Aarion) Penton & (Kenya) Dennis are the two best corners that Pinkel has had since he’s been there.”

    “You’re going to see a different style of defense at Missouri this year because of the lack of defensive ends.”

    “My pick in the SEC East this year is Tennessee… I think Tennessee has fewer question marks.””Ever since I’ve watched Mizzou, they’ve won because of their WRs & DE’s… I just want to see those positions step up.”

    “I think Evan Boehm is the best center in the SEC.”
