Communication breakdowns? Wait, wasn't that Missouri Defense 2008, not 2009? "Yeah, it did surprise me a lot," Ebner said. "We have wristbands with the plays on them, and we also use signals. The first thing we did dating all the way back to spring ball is make sure everyone knew the signals, from first string down to fourth string, from D-linemen to the secondary. Everyone has to know the call and the signals and we have to communicate it." So, what brought those problems back? "I don’t know," linebacker Andrew Gachkar said. "I haven’t seen errors like that since last year. Honestly, I couldn’t tell you. At points, the crowd was so loud that people weren’t getting the same calls. Some people might have been running a zone while some people were running a blitz. It was just a mess."

Dave Matter, on the biggest problem from last night. I guess we can talk all we want about Gabbert's ankle, but if the breakdowns are signs of imminent regression instead of simply a bad game, then it could be even more important than any specific body part of #11.
