COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Missouri athletic officials announce updated plans Friday for a two-year, $100 million renovation project of Memorial Stadium's south end zone facilities.
"The kids that we are recruiting are probably going to go take a visit at another conference school, and you never want to be in a position where you don't have an opportunity to recruit a kid because of something like a facility," athletic director Jim Sterk Odom said. "Obviously, this is going to give our student athletes the best chance to be successful."
Missouri has struggled the past two seasons, winning just two Southeastern Conference games after winning back-to-back division championships in 2013 and 2014. In spite of this, Sterk is optimistic about fundraising efforts.
