Missouri coach asks girls running on stadium stairs to leave because they were a distraction (Picture)
If the young ladies you see in the photo above were running in your general vicinity when you were trying to do something, would you be able to focus? Apparently the Missouri football team cannot. According to Eric Blumberg of KOMU8-TV in Columbia, one of the Mizzou coaches asked the ladies to come back and run the stadium stairs another time on Wednesday morning because they were distracting the team.
We understand head coach Gary Pinkel and his staff are under a lot of pressure after having moved to the SEC, but really? It’s possible they didn’t want to take any chances with being spied on, but if it was a matter of the players not being able to ignore eye candy they could be in for a long season. Distractions are a huge part of college football. If they can’t deal with a couple of girls running while they practice, how will Mizzou deal with things like this and this?
