Missouri's first season in the SEC hasn't been a cakewalk, with their lastest game ending in a 42-10 loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide. It was another big loss for the Tigers, who have gone 0-4 in their conference contests so far in 2012.
During the post-game press conference, Gary Pinkel was ready to move on from that game and from the questions about injuries that the big loss presented.
"Alabama's a great football team. They dominate everybody they play. That being said, I still think we should have played better. That's my feeling. With our youth up in the offensive line now against that defensive front, it's presented remarkable problems. But after this, I will not talk about injuries the rest of the year. Okay? I told our football team we've had a lot of issues. We have a backup quarterback and all this other stuff, but from this point on, I don't care. We're going to move on and try to finish the season the right way."
The Tigers' first chance to move on will come after a long break in play. They will play their next game against Kentucky on Oct. 27.
