A view of Plaster Field from press row. It’s cloudy here but it’s hinting at being a pretty nice afternoon. Temps in the mid-70s and a little breezy. You’ll note the big building beyond the corner of the end zone. It is where Harry S. Truman was both conceived and born.
The game here represents a pivotal juncture in the Coyote season. It’s a tough spot for this reason: Missouri State is winless and to lose to a winless team on the road when you haven’t won a road game since September of 2010, your issues on the road began to look even larger and significant than they are already.
The cliches all apply today for the Coyotes about avoiding mistakes. The truth is if the nuisance stuff becomes the difference between winning and losing today, it means to me that they’re not going to whip the problem during the 2012 season.
Visited the Springfield Brewing Company last night for a few brews and food. Not bad. The community does not seem to be as chain-happy as Sioux Falls. We had a lot of options for going off the corporate grid as far as dining and refreshments were concerned.
