Eli Drinkwitz points to the changes that led to a turning point in Missouri's season
Eli Drinkwitz helped steer Missouri’s season around about a month ago, and since then, the Tigers have won 3 of their last 4 games.
One of the changes might have been the depth chart that was no longer released around midseason, but the coach also said being more unselfish helped, too.
“I think there were a lot of things that were thrown out,” he said Monday at his weekly press conference. “Depth chart, egos, continuing to figure out who really wants to be here. And continuing to mold the team and togetherness. Everybody’s got to be able to push in the same direction, and when you have the best teams, you sacrifice a little bit of your individuality, and you sacrifice a little bit of your ego and you realize it’s not about you, it’s about what we can accomplish together, and I think it took a little bit of humbling for our football team and our football program to get to the point where we’ve got to do it together, we can’t do it by ourselves.”
Missouri returns to action this week against Arkansas.
