Is there such a thing as a “Did Not Play—Coach’s Decision After Dunk and Crotch In Face”? There might be now.

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

Missouri head coach Barry Odom likes guys with chips on their shoulders, guys willing to buck trends and play with an edge that defies their recruiting ranking.

Starting cornerback Adam Sparks is definitely one of those guys. Despite weighing in a lanky 175 pounds and being just a few months removed from graduating at Dutchtown High School in Geismar, La., he was probably Mizzou’s best cornerback by the end of 2017. He finished with six passes defensed and made quite a few plays near the line of scrimmage.

Sparks is a keeper. Unfortunately, he pretty much has to be kicked off the team after dunking on his damn head coach and posting it on Twitter.

That’s a straight-up, crotch-in-the-face dunk. On his damn head coach. And he posted it. On. Social. Media.

Odom responded with this, and honestly, it’s only fair.

Sad for it to come to an end like this, but there was no other way.
