LOOK: Barry Odom, Missouri under fire following slow start versus Purdue

Missouri coach Barry Odom fired defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross one day after a home loss to Missouri last week.

The move didn’t do much good for Missouri in the first half of Saturday’s game against Purdue, though, as the Boilermakers jumped out to a 14-0 first-quarter lead for the Tigers. Just before halftime, the lead had been extended to 28-3, as Missouri got on the board with a last-second field goal.

After the slow start Saturday, Odom and the program as a whole were receiving plenty of flak on Twitter.

Here’s a sampling of the responses.

There’s still a half of football to play.

But nothing to this point would lead one to expect Missouri can mount much of a comeback in the second half.
