The Big 12 Media Days got underway in Kansas City yesterday and Mizzou head coach Gary Pinkel, along with captains James Kinney and Brad Smith fielded questions. Much is expected of the Tigers who are coming off their first winning season and bowl appearance since 1998. The Big 12 Media picked the Tigers to finish 2nd in the Big 12 North, behind Kansas State. Three Tigers—Brad Smith, James Kinney and C.J. Mosely—are pre-season All-Big 12 picks.
