Pinkel's Tigers will continue to battle next season and beyond

Missouri's successful season should serve as a reminder of just how far Gary Pinkel has taken this football program. Even the idea of the Tigers as favorites in a New Year's Day bowl game would have been unthinkable a decade ago, when simply making the postseason counted as a huge accomplishment. A winning record in the Big 12 felt like a reasonable goal for Mizzou as it floundered...

Citrus Bowl coaches Kill, Pinkel share mutual admiration

ORLANDO, Fla. -- When Jerry Kill was the head coach at Southern Illinois, he and his coaches made the four-hour trip from Carbondale, Ill., up to Columbia, Mo., to watch the Missouri Tigers practice. It's not uncommon of coaches at smaller schools who want to see how bigger programs run their day-to-day operations. It was during that trip to Columbia that Kill first met Tigers head...

Who is OUR SEC Coach Of The Year For 2014?

After SEC coaches gave the SEC Coach of The Year award to Missouri's Gary Pinkel, we decided that it was high time to rank the SEC coaches in terms of their job for this year. In advance: Will Muschamp didn't win. 1) Dan Mullen (Mississippi State) We thought he was joking when he said Mississippi State would compete for a SEC title this year. Well, it did. And a play-off berth. And...

Citrus Bowl opponent Missouri does a lot of things well

MINNEAPOLIS -- When the Gophers found out they'd be playing Missouri in the Citrus Bowl on Jan. 1, Minnesota's players admittedly didn't know much about the Tigers. Some watched Mizzou lose to Alabama in the SEC title game this past Saturday, but that was about all they had seen from this year's Tigers team. So what should Minnesota know about Missouri? For starters, the two programs...

Ex-teammates Pinkel, Saban meet for SEC title

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Four decades ago, Gary Pinkel and Nick Saban captured a conference championship with Kent State. Now, the former teammates who once labored long hours together for paltry pay and invaluable experience as graduate assistants will face off with a bigger prize on the line. Saban and No. 1 Alabama will meet Pinkel's 14th-ranked Missouri Tigers Saturday in the Southeastern...

Contributions across the board fuel No. 14 Missouri

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- At the halfway point, Missouri's season was on the verge of ruin. Losing to lightly regarded Indiana at home was one thing. Just one of those stinkers to be shrugged off. Getting smoked 34-0 by Georgia two weeks later while the student body retreated back to the dorms was the true turning point. The Tigers were 4-2 after the loss, seemingly on the way to justifying...

Gary Pinkel Believes Nick Saban Is ‘Underrated’ And ‘Taken For Granted’

Almost any college football fan, even the most fervent Auburn supporter, would admit that Nick Saban is probably the best coach in the sport. Despite that, one of Saban’s SEC counterparts still believes that he is somehow underrated. Missouri’s Gary Pinkel doesn’t believe that the Alabama head coach gets enough credit. Pinkel says Nick Saban is underrated: “You’d be surprised...

Mizzou's first SEC game vs. Arkansas is about more than a rivalry

An official beginning to a new "Battle Line Rivalry" with Arkansas marks Missouri's latest efforts to try to fit into the SEC. The two states have a lot in common, including former Tigers and current Razorbacks basketball coach Mike Anderson, as well as a once-disputed border. But for coach Gary Pinkel and Mizzou, setting the tone for a contrived rivalry shouldn't be much of a priority...
