Mizzou heavily pursued Love, Liddell and Ramey and was a finalist for all three. Liddell was clearly the biggest miss of the three. There are no points for finishing second place in recruiting, but Mizzou wasn't getting in the door with local players of those caliber under the previous regime.
If so, Martin didn't have a lot of great options. Dru Smith was more valuable as a shooting guard and not a point guard - though he still had more assists than Pinson. Buggs was the only other true point guard, and he's not polished enough as a scorer to play heavy minutes.
Success will be measured on Saturdays this fall. For now, sure, there are new starters on both sides of the ball, but that always happens. I'm still not sure how they replace Rountree production - unless they're not going to pound out as many yards on the ground like they did last year. Nick Bolton saved the defense countless times by making stops no one else was capable of making. I'm not sure this defense has anyone who can come close to that kind of production.
Not in my mind because he played him a ton of minutes and let him take the most shots on the team even though he's not a great shooter. Pinson wasn't committed to becoming a great defender. That's half the game.
Yeah, I would assume the week of the first game. Drinkwitz doesn't care much for public depth charts.
It's possible, but I don't think it's a major priority for him. Some of those coaches might have other opportunities that pop up for them.
I was going to check it out the live stream, but once I heard there was no live tackling, it's not really worth watching. Two-hand touch isn't real football.
