ATLANTA, Ga. (KMIZ)
Head coach Eli Drinkwitz brought his patented humor to SEC Media Days in Atlanta, but he also put an emphasis on working to move into the upper half of the conference.
“We’ve got a long way to go as far as, you know, you can’t be in the upper echelon with a 3-5 SEC record," he said.
The players mirrored Coach Drinkwitz's thoughts, noting that this is the senior classes' last chance to overcome that .500 mark. MU has finished at or just one game above .500 for the past three seasons.
"That can be very frustrating and I feel like the biggest thing we have to figure out is just what’s that thing that takes us over the edge," senior safety Martez Manuel said.
There are still a lot of question marks for the Tigers headed into the 2022 season. For instance, Drinkwitz is still trying to determine who will be the starting quarterback. However, Drinkwitz said that he feels that this is the most talent and most depth he's had in his time at Mizzou.
