Mizzou's Eli Drinkwitz delivers hilarious quote about not caring about the B1G and Pac-12 coming back
The Big Ten announced it was returning to action in late-October on Wednesday morning, and now there are rumors the Pac-12 might be close behind.
There are still obstacles to overcome, but for now, it seems there could be football in all 5 Power 5 conferences before 2021.
However, for new Mizzou coach Eli Drinkwitz, there’s no time to focus on other leagues. When asked about the Big Ten during a Wednesday press conference, Drinkwitz delivered a great quote about having to worry about Alabama in Week 1:
Eli Drinkwitz on other leagues coming back: "I got enough crap to worry about playing Alabama, I can't figure out whether or not the Big Ten or Pac-12 are gonna yo-yo around and play football with us or not. If they’re playing, great. Love it. Love the game. Awesome game."

That seems to be the sentiment from many fans outside Big Ten country — either play or don’t. Just make a decision already.
Drinkwitz continues to be a great quote and a charismatic coach heading toward his first season with the Tigers.
