There have been players in the past who were touted as the ones that would swing the program’s future. Blaine Gabbert was the highly recruited, big-name quarterback that Chase Daniel never was. But it took Bill Callahan getting fired from Nebraska for Gabbert to wind up in Columbia. The Tigers were DGB’s top choice, and it was a choice he made with the world of college football watching. It was an announcement that can reverberate. For the next three seasons (at least), recruits will visit Columbia and ask: "Why should I come to Mizzou?" And the guy who was the best high school football player in the country will be there to answer them.

Missourian alum Robert Mays answers the "What DGB Means to M-I-Z" question for Grantland.
