According to Woody Wommack of Rivals.com — who has been closer to Kelly Bryant than just about any reporter out there — Missouri’s prized transfer quarterback is staying in Columbia, despite the recently handed-down NCAA sanctions.

It makes sense, obviously. Bryant left Clemson for a starting opportunity that would prepare him for the NFL; Missouri checked both those boxes. Hell, Missouri might actually get MORE national attention next season because of the ridiculous NCAA sanctions that it intends to appeal.
Should the postseason ban stick, Missouri — led by Bryant — has a golden opportunity to make the NCAA look silly.
How does it do that?
Just like the source close to Bryant said:
“Try to go undefeated.”
