The Trib: Concerns over Gabbert are gone with the win
Although his team’s record was perfect, Gabbert was open for nit-picking throughout the first five games. He often scrambled out of a perfectly good pocket and into trouble — a habit known as "happy feet" that carries the unwanted implication that the feet in question belong to someone who doesn’t want to take a hit. Texas A&M’s Jerrod Johnson and Gabbert were considered the frontrunners for first-team All-Big 12 honors, but heading into yesterday’s game, neither was trending toward even honorable mention.
More worrisome for Missouri was the injury to Gabbert’s hip and/or ribs suffered in last week’s 26-0 victory over Colorado. Before Tuesday’s practice, he needed help just to stretch. There were flashbacks of last year’s midseason swoon that coincided with Gabbert’s severe ankle sprain.
Gabbert was so intent on playing, and playing well, that he didn’t want to miss a practice rep.
"There was one period where we moved James Franklin up to the 1s, and Blaine was mad," offensive coordinator David Yost said.
Missouri could afford a pedestrian effort from its quarterback against overmatched nonconference opponents and its perennial Big 12 punching bag, Colorado, but not in its first true road game, not in front of a roaring crowd of more than 83,000 at Kyle Field.
But Missouri is a good road team — now 10-3 in away games since 2007 — and it liked the matchup against Texas A&M, even though the Aggies ranked 24th nationally in total defense.
"They’re a Cover 2 team. That’s their base thing," MU’s Wes Kemp said. "In our offense, we say, ‘Pray for Cover 2.’ "
