The Missouri football team will have to do without its leading rusher for a length of time that hasn’t been determined. Head coach Gary Pinkel indefinitely suspended Nash from the team on Monday at his weekly press briefing. Pinkel offered no comment on the matter but there has been speculation that the decision may have something to do with comments he made to columnist Jason Whitlock of the Kansas City Star. In a column that ran on Monday, Whitlock indicated that Nash was unhappy with the play-calling in the 20-17 loss to Oklahoma State. “I wish I had the headphones on to hear what’s going on,” Nash said. “I wish I could call the offense. I didn’t understand a lot of the plays.” Nash leads the team with 621 yards and averages 4.8 yards per carry. Red-shirt freshman Marcus Woods will take over the starting spot, while true freshman Tony Temple will see his first snaps of the season at second string.
