First round of roster attrition hits Mizzou football roster

How about we talk about hoops later in the day? For now, we’ve got...

FOOTBALL ROSTER NEWS.

I mean, it’s one thing to stop recruiting St. Louis ... it’s another to start pushing StL products off the team am I right? (I kid.)

With the current scholarship count (still over 85), Mizzou was bound to lose six to eight players from the roster, and none of these are particularly surprising. Ray Wingo didn’t see the field last season, while T.J. Warren and Jerod Alton combined for 19.0 tackles as backups.

I’m a little surprised by Alton, simply because he had a reasonably clear path to at least the second string at cornerback, but none of these guys were going to be starting this year.

You have to feel for Pompey Coleman, though. He scored an SEC offer, then suffered a weird injury at the very start of his senior year. Mizzou still has eight other linemen signed in the 2017 and 2018 classes, so depth doesn’t appear it will be an issue, but that’s a “what could have been” situation right there.
