During a recent spring media availability, Drinkwitz discussed his thoughts on the importance of opening camp as much as possible to Missouri fans.
“I’ve been adamant about creating and uniting the spirit of Mizzou, whether that’s rural Missouri, Kansas City, or St Louis, and provide our fans with an opportunity to support our football team and really get behind it,” Drinkwitz noted. “For me put I’m going to put my money where my mouth is and make sure that we provide those fans an opportunity to come to and watch a practice.
Drinkwitz also called for all fans within 60 miles of campus to come on out to the upcoming practices/spring game.
“Just trying to provide people with an opportunity to do something, specifically in rural Missouri,” the coach added. “If you’re 60 miles or less (away), come on out to practice. We’ll give you your money’s worth. It’s free.”
