Tigers looking for more in SEC Year 2

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, MO (AP) -

An easy way to get Gary Pinkel agitated is to ask the Missouri coach what he learned in a hard-knocks introduction to the SEC.

The Tigers were 5-7 last year, ending a string of eight consecutive bowl appearances. He blames injuries to quarterback James Franklin and the offensive line, not the increased degree of difficulty jumping from the Big 12 to the nation's premier conference.

Missouri opens the season at home Aug. 31 against Murray State.
