Missouri Tigers football head coach, Barry Odom’s patience is running as thin as the fan base’s is for him.
“The past two weeks, coming in here and saying the same thing. I’m kinda getting tired of it and I’m sure you are too,” Odom said at his weekly press conference Tuesday morning.
He once again took the blame for the team’s poor performance. This week, he took ownership for the Tigers’ (1-2) horrid 35-3 loss to the Purdue Boilermakers (2-1) this passed Saturday at Faurot Field. Mizzou will look to bounce back this weekend once again at home as they take on the #15 ranked Auburn Tigers (2-1).
When asked about what impresses him about Auburn he noted their potent rushing attack.
“I’m impressed with their offensive line, the way they’re able to run the ball.” Odom said.
With the struggles Mizzou’s defense has had, this statement makes you wonder if there will be any changes heading in to the game Saturday.
“This is not where I want this football team to be. And I need to do what I think is necessary to get them there,” Odom said in closing Tuesday morning.
There are a lot of opinions flying around about what that might mean, but as for now, looking forward and working on improving seems to be where Odom’s head is.
Auburn and Mizzou will face off in Columbia at 6:30 p.m. CDT on Saturday.
