New Missouri head coach Barry Odom appears to be a very popular individual when it comes to the college football world.

Missouri players -- both past and present -- voiced their support for Odom over social media before he was officially pegged as the head man.

Gary Pinkel offered his praise of the 39-year old coach, as did Virginia Tech head coach Justin Fuente and Oklahoma Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione.

It will be fascinating to see how the program changes under Odom's leadership. While he likely will retain many of the principles Pinkel utilized in making the program successful, he undoubtedly will implement his own touches as well.
