Barry Odom calls out Tennessee for trying to poach Mizzou players after 2019 bowl ban
The Missouri Tigers were recently hit with a 2019 postseason ban, and that means that rising seniors can be contacted by other programs about transferring.
Several squads have already been in touch with the Tigers’ senior class, and on Tuesday, coach Barry Odom called out one school in particular.
Per CBSSports.com, Odom is none too happy with the way the Tennessee Volunteers are coming after his players:
“Everybody is going to have a bad day,” Odom said, expressing his frustration with keeping his players from transferring. “You combine that with somebody that — who’d we beat 51-17 this year? Tennessee? Yeah, those guys. They are non-stop reaching out daily [saying], ‘Hey, come here.’ The grass is not always greener somewhere else.”
The Tigers are appealing the NCAA ruling, but while that happens, teams are going to continue to come after their players.
Will the Vols back off? Georgia has already said it won’t try to poach Mizzou players.
