Mizzou Links, 9-5-13: Gary Pinkel, Toledo, and picking up your gear

Bill Carter

So in a couple of hours, I'll be leaving on this year's "I can't believe they pay me for this" SBN road trip. Last year, I did the SEC. This year, B1G country. Your capable mustaches and mastheaders will get you through the weekend, and I'll be popping up sporadically.

Oh yeah, and since I won't have time to do a Toledo BTBS preview, just read this instead. It's not like a lot's changed since I wrote it.
