Missouri's Gary Pinkel On Fast-Tempo Offenses Causing Injuries: 'I Think It's Fiction'

The three coaches speaking at SEC Media Days in Hoover, Ala. Wednesday are Missouri's Gary Pinkel, LSU's Les Miles and Arkansas' Bret Bielema. 

Two of those program leaders--Pinkel and Bielema--have very different opinions on the pace-of-play-causing-injuries subject.

Pinkel had his turn at the podium this morning. Bielema will likely be asked for a counter response when he speaks at 3:30 p.m. E.T.

Most SEC coaches share Pinkel's opinion. Auburn's Gus Malzahn has often pointed out that he's been running a hurry-up offense since the late 1990s and he's never had a problem with injuries. 

The 2014 version of the SEC Media Days have been fairly tame, but with Bielema set to speak in a couple of hours, controversy could soon take place in Hoover, Ala.
