Tigers, coaches visit Jefferson City lawmakers

Nearly 30 members of the 2011 Mizzou football team went to Jefferson City Feb. 21 to meet lawmakers and fans. 

The players joined Coach Gary Pinkel and Athletic Director Mike Alden for a session to sign posters and footballs for senators and representatives in the House Lounge. 

Afterward, the players met with staff and fans, who saw the 2011 Independence Bowl trophy, won by the Tigers after defeating North Carolina last December.

The day marked the first trip to the Capitol for 

UM System President Tim Wolfe, who visited with the team and lawmakers. 

Wolfe began his official duties Feb. 15.
