The Trib (Dave Matter): Emptying the Notebook
One thing Gabbert needs to fix: His decision-making in or near the red zone. Pinkel touched on this after the game, but Gabbert has such confidence in his passing that sometimes he gets too cute in those precious areas of the field when he can afford to be more judicious and conservative. "He tried to make two good throws," Pinkel said of Gabbert's two picks, both coming in CU territory, at the 16 and 25. "Probably he’s good enough to make it, but a quarterback’s got to learn to throw the ball, especially when you get in the red zone area ... throw the ball where we might not complete it, but" the defense "can’t get it. You might make" the receiver "reach a little further. But that’s OK, we’ll kick a field goal."
The Missourian: Turnovers, sacks finally come for Missouri defense
Missouri coach Gary Pinkel has said it all season. His team’s defense was close. If it kept doing the right things, the turnovers and sacks would come. In Saturday’s 36-17 win against Colorado, they came in bunches.
After accumulating 13 sacks over the first seven games, the Tigers had eight against Colorado, including three from Smith, a defensive end. Following the game, the redshirt freshman echoed his head coach’s statements. The defense was due for a game like this.
"We believe in ourselves, and we believed in our coaches and our assignments," Smith said. "If we did our assignments right we would get to the quarterback."
