Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel, who many believed was on the hot seat just a year or two ago, seems to be firmly entrenched as the Tigers head man – especially after winning the SEC East in just the team’s second season in the league. Thursday, the school re-released a commercial – titled “Wake Up The Echoes” – that aired back when Pinkel was first hired in 2001. Perhaps it’s the program’s way of saying that optimism is just as high as it was over a decade ago.
It’s not the most high-tech college football commercial we’ve seen – that’s for sure. But the message is pretty clear.
