Brilliant time for our drunk driving douche of a coach to take the moral high road. No Richardson means no pass rush, which totally exposes the shitty secondary, which put up the most hideous display of failure I've seen since the Colts/Chiefs 2003 playoff game. Only the idiot quarterback of cocksucking Syracuse ain't Peyton Manning.
In the end, though, these idiots don't deserve a bowl game - they probably just get beat anyway. One more game and this part of the shittiest fall for football I can remember is over.
I sure hope some heads roll on the coaching staff. Frankly, they can all ****ing roll as far as I'm concerned.
I hear you. I understand what Pinkel was saying, but for a guy who isn't accomplishing the goals outlined for him by his boss (to get to avoid being FORCED to make changes), it was a weird decision.
Pinkel was told he had to get to 7-5 to be able to keep his staff intact. SInce he hasn't...
Bruce Walker and Brian Jones are almost CERTAINLY gone. Nice guys, but poor recruiters and only OK coaches don't survive in the SEC.
Dave Yost MIGHT be safe if he and Pinkel will accept him being demoted and a new OC being given complete control of the offense.
Cornell Ford is a good recruiter and an OK coach. He is questionable, but his ties to key St. Louis spots would make him a tough cut. If you feel like you can line up a guy like Mike Jones as a position coach, you probably can do this.
Andy Hill is safe. His position consistently features the best performance of any Mizzou position (WR) and he is an excellent recruiter in the KC area.
Josh Henson is safe. He's a great recruiter and great coach.
Alex Grinch is Pinkel's nephew, but he seems to have done a decent job on the recruiting trail and is a pretty good position coach to the casual eye (safety play has been much better this year, even from Matt White). Not sure where he would slot.
