College Football Recap: Week 14 (Barry Odom Edition)

I had high hopes for Barry Odom. Deep down, I think we all did.

He wasn’t the sexiest choice to replace his legendary predecessor, but that was OK. He was a Mizzou guy, and we took comfort in that.

He wanted to win so badly. That passion was evident, and because of it, he seemed like one of us.

I think Odom’s a fine coach, and I have no doubt he’ll succeed at wherever he lands from here.

That place just won’t be Missouri. And that’s a shame.

Odom didn’t exactly fail here. Let’s face it, the standards here are not — and perhaps shouldn’t be — as high as they are at other places.
