Eli Drinkwitz says he's not making atmosphere at Jordan-Hare 'bigger than it is'
Missouri Tigers head coach Eli Drinkwitz is not interested in making Jordan-Hare Stadium out to be ‘bigger than it is.’
Drinkiwitz and his squad are heading southeast for one of only a few winnable SEC games for the Tigers.
“I’m not going to make it bigger than it is,” Drinkwitz said Tuesday. “It’s a road game, we’ve played in some road games before. It just happens to be a lot of these guys’ first time at this one. Won’t make it bigger than that, take what you learn from what you thought you did do well from K-State.”
And that’s a good philosophy. A road environment is only as scary as you allow it to be, and an opportunity for a win is right there in front of you.

Coach Drink is familiar with it, of course – he was a quality control assistant there from 2010-11 pic.twitter.com/gga4TviN1Z
