Missouri back to football, but it's not business as usual
The Missouri Tigers are back to the business of football though coach Gary Pinkel acknowledged the preparations for BYU on Saturday are not business as usual for the team.
The Tigers boycotted football-related activities for two days as a show of support for student and faculty protests against the school's leadership. The boycott ended with the resignation Monday of the president of the state's university system.
The Tigers practiced Tuesday and were scheduled to do so again Wednesday and Thursday.
On Wednesday morning, university police arrested a man accused of making online threats against black students and faculty on the campus.
Pinkel says the current climate is anything but conducive to focusing on football, but he has asked his staff to stay in close contact with the players.
