COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Barry Odom was as prepared as a rookie head coach could be
when he took over the Missouri football team following the 2015 season. He had
played linebacker at Missouri in the 1990s and worked his way up the ladder
under Gary Pinkel, starting as an administrative graduate assistant and
finishing as defensive coordinator. Odom and the Tigers hit a lot of potholes on
their way to a 4-8 record last season. There are higher hopes this year.
Missouri opens the season Sept. 2 against Missouri State.
