COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Eli Drinkwitz was saying all the right things after being introduced as the new football coach at Missouri, laying out his vision for the once-proud program with unwavering confidence and bold proclamations.
Then the former Appalachian State coach made a minor slip-up.
"Our purpose is to win, make no mistake about it, but to win the right way," Drinkwitz said before a packed room overlooking the south end zone of Memorial Stadium on Tuesday. "And our goal - our stated goal - is to win the Sun Belt."
