Mizzou set to make fashion statement vs. KU

COLUMBIA – As soon as Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel stepped away from the podium Monday afternoon, his weekly press conference turned into a fashion show.

Athletic department officials brought in a mannequin decked out in the special uniform the Tigers will wear Saturday in their game against Kansas at Arrowhead Stadium. Nike chose 10 schools whose athletic programs have contracts with the company, and designed one distinct uniform for each.

Don Barnes, who is director of equipment operations for the MU athletic department, discussed various aspects of the uniform while members of the media passed around a sample football helmet, gloves, cleats, and pants.
