Jon Hamm and Some Sports Media Types Were Sweating With Excitement About Gary Pinkel

By Ty Duffy

Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel joined the Internet. His website features a countdown clock and a video, with interviews from John Anderson’s 2011 charity golf tournament. Mizzou alum Jon Hamm, as well as Linda Cohn, Michael Kim and Big Ten Network’s Mike Hall testify to his character and coaching ability. The timing of the video is convenient, coming just months before Pinkel’s infamous DWI arrest.

The site captures the pure essence of Pinkel for prospective recruits: offense, hollow spin, cheek sweat.
