No love from you on Odom signing Bazelak, I guess.
Drinkwitz's good vibes are back in motion again thanks to some big recruiting wins.
It's made folks forget about the Mississippi State flop that cost the team a winning season.
The Sam Horn commitment is big, as long as it holds. He's the highest-ranked out-of-state QB recruit to pick Mizzou since recruiting rankings became such a big thing. That means he should be good, sure, but it also helps recruiting by the ripple effect. It gets players talking about the Tigers.
Seeing how Drinkwitz will manage the QBs is going to be interesting. There could be some tension based on how the depth chart is stacking up. The best way to guard against transfers thinning the field is to keep recruiting talent, and Drinkwitz seems determined to do that.
I think if Drinkwitz continues to improve the talent level, he can make the Tigers one of the best teams in the SEC East. The Tigers can be that team that is steadily just below and sometimes at or maybe even better than the level of Florida and Georgia.
If he can do that, as big of a long-term question will be how Mizzou can keep him.
But a lot has to go right before that conversation really gets started.
