The Tigers' coach will look to return the team to bowl-caliber form next season.
The Columbia Daily Tribune is reporting that University of Missouri Head Football Coach Gary Pinkel will return to the Tiger sidelines in 2013. After an injury-riddled season that robbed the team of a consistent offensive line and quarterback play in Mizzou's 5-7 first season in the Southeastern Conference, Athletic Director Mike Alden told the paper Pinkel would return next fall. The Tigers will not play in a postseason bowl game for the first time since 2004. Pinkel is scheduled to review the 2012 season and look ahead to next season with reporters Tuesday morning, after a flurry of uninformed speculation had rumors flying he would resign Monday. Keeping the current Tiger coaching staff has implications for several St. Louis area Senior …

The University of Missouri-themed store quietly opened Aug. 29, but with a new sign installed Wednesday, it's set for a grand opening next Thursday.
It's probably a lament often heard in Mizzou Nation: Where can I lay my hands on a bottle opener that plays "Fight Tigers" when I pop the top of my brew? The answer is here at last. The Mizzou Store opened quietly in the Chesterfield Valley on Aug. 29, but has its official grand opening next week. And if you visit the store at 10 THF Boulevard, near the eastern end of the massive retail strip mall off of Highway 40, prepare yourself: You might overload on black and gold. There are T-shirts and sweatshirts, bottle cozys and blankets. There is even that bottle opener we mentioned earlier. "I think that's pretty crazy. That makes me laugh," said Michelle Froese, spokesman for The Mizzou Store. "We also have grill accessories so you can brand…

Tigers focused on three consecutive October home games including Alabama Oct. 13.
Sports trivia: When Vanderbilt faces off with Mizzou Saturday night in Columbia (6 p.m. kickoff on Fox Sports Midwest), the team with James Franklin will definitely be the winner. Seems that James Franklin coaches Vandy while James Franklin is Mizzou’s starting quarterback. Don’t worry, they are not related, but something has to give. Mizzou is 3-2 (0-2 in the SEC) coming off a 21-16 road win at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. The Commodores were pasted by Georgia 48-3 and sport a 1-3 record (0-2 in the SEC.) Mizzou covets a win with home games coming up in October (13th) with top-ranked Alabama and an Oct. 27 game with Kentucky (home coming). Here comes Vandy This is the first meeting between the schools since Dwight David …

Head Coach Gary Pinkel and his staff will host high school athletes from around the Midwest for a one day camp at De Smet.
Sunday marks the third day of a so-called "quiet period" in NCAA football recruiting cycles, but for potential college athletes or just prep athletes looking for a little hands-on instruction in Creve Coeur, Sunday could be an ideal day to make some noise. That's when Gary Pinkel and the football staff at the University of Missouri will descend on the De Smet campus to host one of the program's one-day summer camps. The Creve Coeur stop is the only one in the St. Louis area. The camp also features dozens of other college coaches from around the area. The camp is open to anyone from the classes of 2013-2016. Past camps have resulted in scholarship opportunities for athletes at Mizzou and other college football programs. There is a $25 …

Five University of Missouri athletic teams will wear new Nike uniforms next season in an attempt to appeal to potential recruits.
The University of Missouri football Tigers held the annual "Black and Gold" scrimmage over the weekend at Faurot Field, but the reason why many in the crowd of roughly 18,000 showed up for spring practice had little to do with what was happening between the tackles Saturday. Of greater interest was the chance to get a look at what the Tigers will WEAR from sideline to sideline starting next fall. After months of hype, the school unveiled uniforms for the football squad along with new threads for both basketball teams, soccer and volleyball.
