  • The Trib: He still has plenty to prove

    By his teammates’ admission, Gabbert will begin his junior season barely resembling the sophomore who took over for Daniel in MU’s no-huddle spread offense last summer. More naturally reticent than Daniel — then again, who isn’t? — Gabbert has since found his voice during offseason practices, the voluntary workouts that players organize and oversee. This summer, Gabbert has been the ringleader.

    "Blaine, he’s become more of a vocal leader," senior tailback Derrick Washington said. "He’s getting into people. He’s not letting little stuff go like he did last year. He’s telling people, ‘Catch the ball. Run your routes right.’ I like that about Blaine."

    "People are listening to him," senior cornerback Kevin Rutland added. "I’m on defense and I’m a few years older than him, and I still find myself listening to him. I enjoy watching him command this team."

    Gabbert has refined his game technically, too, Rutland said. He routinely recognizes the coverages Missouri’s defense is playing in practice, the valuable skill that Daniel began to master as a junior at MU.

    "His presnap read has really improved," Rutland said. "I wasn’t in a position to watch him last year and know what’s going on, but he’ll show us this year he is fully confident and fully aware of everything that’s going on."
