It’s Kelly Bryant Day, and Missouri got both good and bad news on Monday

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

1. Tuesday is Kelly Bryant Day.

While Bryant has publicly said he hasn’t eliminated any of his final five schools, the popular opinion seems to be that it’s Auburn or Missouri.

Auburn, on Monday, parted ways with offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey. Justin Ferguson of The Athletic doesn’t seem to think that would affect Bryant’s decision, but that still seems like a risky move. If you’re making a decision for one final year, something tells me you’d want to at least be familiar with the person who will be overseeing the offense, right?

Here are some more Kelly Bryant links to set up a great day or prepare you for heartbreak:

2. Joe Jon is Jimbo Fisher’s Pick

His coach was our coach, too.

Yes, Missouri tight ends coach Joe Jon Finley is now former Missouri tight ends coach Joe Jon Finley as he accepted an offer from Jimbo Fisher to join the staff at Texas A&M in the same capacity.

The offseason always comes with coaching changes — something Missouri largely avoided under Gary Pinkel. Finley was a quiet but instrumental part of Barry Odom’s coaching staff, being credited with helping to add Baylor-like wrinkles to the offensive system when Josh Heupel was the offensive coordinator.

3. Tre’Vour Wallace-Simms is a first-team all-SEC selection

Missouri’s starting right guard was the Tigers lone inclusion on the AP All-SEC First Team.

However, Drew Lock and Terry Beckner were second-team AP All-SEC.

Wallace-Simms was a very well-deserved inclusion on the first team, again as Gabe DeArmond points out:

4. Redshirt freshman defensive back announces his transfer from Mizzou

Tyrone Collins was a three-star cornerback in Missouri’s 2018 class but he did not play this season, using a redshirt year. Collins is from Bradenton, Fla.

Good luck, Tyrone.
