As for the string of discipline issues to strike his team, Pinkel touched on the subject for the first time this preseason, saying he was "kind of embarrassed." "We've worked real hard to develop and build a program I think that has a very good reputation of being first class and disciplined," he said. "And we've taken a few hits. The only way you're going to that back is to earn it back. That's what we intend to do."Via Dave Matter's "Monday Morning Missouri Briefing".
