Missouri Head Coach Gary Pinkel and Tiger quarterback Brad Smith talked about the tough task of facing the Oklahoma defense at their weekly press conference Monday in Columbia.
Missouri Head Coach Gary Pinkel on which players on OU's defense can cause problems
I can give you names, but they are all All-American candidates. To name just one or two names would be a disservice to the rest of them. There is not a weakness that they have from a personnel standpoint. And, that's a tribute to Coach Stoops and the program and everything else that they are doing, and that's certainly a challenge for our office.
Pinkel on whether or not he is eager to test out his offense on OU's defense
Offense or defense, when you play a team of this caliber, perhaps the best team in our league, your going to find out a lot about our football team. Yeah, this is a great opportunity. Playing this type of personnel is going to tell us a lot about our football team.
Pinkel on if the staff has looked at how Alabama was able to score on the Sooners
Well we break down all our film, and I'm sorry to say that there still are not many weaknesses. They're a great football team. But, that's part of the deal. That's the exciting thing about being here. That's the exciting thing about playing. We have a great opportunity to play a great team in Faurot Field in front of great fans. This is what its all about.
Missouri quarterback Brad Smith on playing Oklahoma Saturday
They've got a lot of fast players, smart football players, and good coaches. They're a great team, as we'll see on Saturday. We've just got to go out there and play with a lot of excitement and emotion, know our game plan, execute, and let the chips fall where they may.
Pinkel says OU's defense has no weakness
