Missouri Tigers head coach Gary Pinkel seems like a swell fellow to interview on the radio. He's certainly quotable, quite open and candid, and he sure lets the hate fly when needed. And when it came to the Kansas Jayhawks, Pinkel had to get in one last shot.â†µ
"I wish the Big 12 luck. I'd never wish Kansas luck. I can't do that. That's against my principles. But certainly I hope the Big 12 does really, really well. Let's just move on. Gosh darn, it's not that complex."â†µ
This came at the end of the interview. Before it, Pinkel said he felt Mizzou's move to the SEC cost Frank Haith the Big 12 Coach of the Year Award in basketball -- and he probably has a point. He also said the Border War will return, so don't act like it won't be back some day.â†µ
