On tailback Tyler Hunt, Pinkel says, "He's got a role.
He knows what his role is."Pinkel says it's "certainly a possibility" that Missouri move Connor Mc Govern back to guard but the team wants its top linemen at center and left tackle, and with Evan Boehm at center, the other best lineman is Mc Govern.

This year, he's making those impact plays he wasn't finishing last year. It's something at a young age he's forced to deal with. He'll spend the year rehabbing with hopes of playing in 2016 then apply for a medical redshirt for the 2017 season. "He was really, really frustrated."
