The stakes could not be more clear for Missouri entering its Saturday homecoming game against Kentucky. Win, and the Tigers improve to 4-4 overall, earn their first Southeastern Conference victory and keep their hopes of an eighth straight bowl bid alive. Lose, and the Tigers are in danger of finishing dead last and winless in the SEC East, as they will be the underdogs in remaining conference games against Florida, Tennessee and Texas A&M. With that kind of pressure, and MU coming off a bye week, it would not be unreasonable to wonder if the coaching staff used the extra time to make sweeping changes to an offense that has largely struggled. But while offensive coordinator David Yost said Monday there could be some tweaks, anyone hoping for wholesale changes will be disappointed.
