UConn's Diaco said Missouri is "kind of a machine"

There was a heavy Columbia, Missouri presence on the weekly American Athletic Conference coaches call.

It was some of the stuff that usually come out during non-conference weeks with Diaco's thoughts of what he saw in the UConn job which made him leave his gig as Notre Dame's defensive coordinator and some inquiries on the process of building the program.

His answer to the final question of the call about Diaco's thoughts on Missouri I thought was worthy of sharing.

"Everything," Diaco said. "They are an awesome team, played in multiple championship games in one of the finest conferences in America. They are a very explosive, high-octane offense, very talented players and experienced front. I have watched them move people around that are very, very talented teams - Minnesota, Alabama for the better part of three quarters, Kentucky, Arkansas it really something to come back and win that game (with 15 points in the fourth quarter) with a lot of the same guys at least up front and the defense is outstanding so it is really everything. It is kind of a machine that way. Coach (Gary) Pinkel has built that program for a long time now into one of the finest programs in the country."
