(Missouri Football App) – So you say you are frustrated with Mizzou’s loss to Vanderbilt Saturday and the overall play of the Tigers in the 2012 campaign – well join crowd. Head coach Gary Pinkel says there is only one thing to do and that is work harder.
"It's just difficult. I don't think there's any magic (answer) there. Our guys work hard, they battle, and they fight. We just have to get back tomorrow and get back to work. It's pretty consistent how we do things. Our guys are very competitive and they want to win and be successful. I've been here before and we don't like it. But we have to get back to work and that's what we'll do."
Pinkel says the record does not reflect a lack of effort.
"They're competitors. They're frustrated and angry, and they should be. They want to win and be successful. This is not the fun part of playing or coaching. How we handle it will be the most important thing. We're going to get back to work. A lot of guys are frustrated and that's good. We're going to wipe ourselves off and get going. I've been here. We're not going to sit around and feel sorry for ourselves."
