We learned it’s Eliah and not Eli.
The second-year head coach at Missouri has plenty of momentum after going .500 in SEC play last season with 16 total starters returning to Columbia. Eliah Drinkwitz seems confident and comfortable as he cracked jokes and gave some calculated answers at SEC Media Days.
Missouri may have one of the least talented rosters in the SEC, but the Tigers are well-coached and have a track to an 8-4 record and potential top 25 finish this season if things break right. Drinkwitz has this program trending in the right direction.
Conference realignment is all the buzz as rumors are circulating that Missouri could have long-time rival Oklahoma joining the conference as well as former Big 12 member Texas.
