We finally have the explanation for Jalen Knox’s absence

After not addressing his absence for the entire first-half, the CBS broadcast crew finally figured it out.

Jalen Knox was notably absent from Missouri’s first-half against Tennessee. The offense didn’t miss much of a beat with out him, taking a 26-10 lead into halftime.

The CBS Broadcast crew of Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson, however, didn’t seem to even notice — until halftime, anyway.

Earlier in the broadcast, Danielson and Nessler mentioned a conversation with Derek Dooley this week in which Missouri’s offensive coordinator was vague about some news, saying they would figure it out during the game. At the time, the CBS announcers surmised that Dooley was referencing Damarea Crockett, who played sparingly for much of the first half.

Looking back, Dooley was probably referencing Knox’s absence.
