Mizzou Links, 11-10-09

No, I'm not linking to the "I quit you, Pinkel" column at the Maneater...when that dude grows up and actually learns something about how college football works, he's going to want to forget he wrote that, so I'll help him by further allowing it to disappear into the ether...

And we'll talk more about the "halftime adjustments" concept in the Baylor BTBS post later today...

  • MUtigers.com: Official Release!
    Blaine Gabbert threw for 468 yards and 2 TDs on the day, with the yardage total ranking as second-highest in MU single-game history – just 12 yards off the MU record of 480 set in 1992 at Oklahoma State by Jeff Handy. Gabbert’s main accomplice was Danario Alexander, who torched the Baylor defense for a career-high 13 catches for 214 yards, including a career-long 84-yard TD that helped stake Mizzou to a 27-16 halftime lead. Gabbert was 21-of-27 in the 1st half for 322 yards, and ended 30-of-51.

    Alexander’s yardage total was the 4th-highest in MU single-game history, and it marked only the 5th 200-yard receiving game in Mizzou annals (the yardage record is 236, set twice by Justin Gage).

    When Baylor was able to keep the ball out of Alexander’s hands, Jared Perry was the benefactor, as he got free for 7 catches for 145 yards of his own.

    The 359 combined yards by the Alexander-Perry combo ranks as the most for a 1-2 duo in MU single-game history. That eclipsed the former mark of 314 yards set in 1992 (in the same Oklahoma State game where Jeff Handy set the single-game passing yardage mark) by Kenny Holly (15-158, 1 TD) and Victor Bailey (11-156).

    Lots of talk on Monday about in-game adjustments, especially with Yost and Gabbert. We'll touch on this topic more as the week continues, but here's how Pinkel addressed criticism of Missouri's halftime adjustments, or lack thereof: "I've always said this: If you’re waiting 'til halftime to make adjustments, you’re probably not a very good coach. We’re on headsets all the time. We’re talking to each other in-between every series. So, I’ve always said that’s very, very, very overrated. And I’ll stick with that."

    Yost explained that making adjustments on the fly before and during a game are a never-ending process. He said Baylor played exactly the style of defense the coaches had expected and prepared for and made some very subtle adjustments in the second half that MU also expected and countered against. Yost also thoroughly explained his game-day routine from kickoff through halftime and up until the first kickoff of the second half. By the minute. And, like Pinkel, Yost faulted himself and said he needs to do a better job of game-planning and play-calling. He's exasperated with the second-half struggles and is trying to diagnose what's causing those breakdowns.
