Missouri head coach Kim Anderson is facing a lot of heat this season and is expected to win if he hopes to save his job. He responded to this pressure by emerging from a casket at the teams Halloween themed scrimmage.
Good for coach Anderson for doing what he can to lighten the mood. This will do little to help his job security, though. The only way to help that is to win some basketball games. After two season as head coach, Anderson has a 19-44 record and two straight last place finishes in the SEC.
The team is projected to perform similarly this season.
The team is young and it will take a miraculous coaching job by Anderson to get them out of the conference basement. If he fails to do so, he will be fired, and this stunt will seem more like an omen than a fun joke for the kids.
