3:42 p.m. CT: Pinkel dodges question on where to eat in Columbia (MO). Smart man

3:42 p.m. CT: Hasn't given much thought to who might be Missouri's rivals in the SEC

3:37 p.m. CT: Someone just asked Pinkel if this was like going from JV to varsity. Really. THEY PLAY SISSY FOOTBALL IN THEM THERE BIG 12

3:33 p.m. CT: "To say that [the fans] are excited about us being in the SEC would be an understatement." He says this in a flawless monotone
