Is it true that Gabbert was about to sign with CU until GB was fired? Thats what GB says.
Not sure how they could overturn that call of a catch on 4th down. Looked inconclusive to me.
One of the angles it looked like the ball hit the ground. Not sure though. Can't believe Gabbert threw that pic...
Glad to see Missouri running a form of the tripple option, urrr the spread
I didn't see how they could overturn it until after they had overturned it. Then they showed a replay which pretty clearly showed the ball sliding out. I think the refs get wider and better views of the replays that we see on TV.
Make sense now?
Suck it mizzou...
Glad they got beat by a bad Iowa team. Mizzou fans act like CFB started in '05...around the time Hawk got here.
At least some one can beat Mizzery. Thanks Hawk! You succeeded in having us exit the Big 12 with countless spankings by freaking Mizzery. Freaking Mizzery! Pathetic.
@DBT, it was Maclin who was committed to CU when GB was fired but went to Mizzou, not Gabbert.
Mizzou's persona under Pinky is to look all world in the first half of the season, lose a key game in mid-October, and then lay down...Mizzou has peaked. Pinky is going to take them bowling every year to some mid-tier bowl, where they will promptly spread their cheeks for their opponent. Pinky has done a good job, but he isn't taking Mizzou all the way.
As others have observed, how pathetic is it that a mid-tier bowl team gave CU the red *** for years under D II....
i sort of believed in Missouri after they beat OU. Gabbert, playmakers on O, much improved D. seems hilarious now. they cratered at Nebraska, lost @ Tech and looked like ass last night.
props to Iowa.
Of course. What was I thinking? Thanks for the clarification.
Agree with you on Pinkel and Mizzou. The thing that has helped him more than anything is finding good QBs lately. I understand that MU has a couple of good QB in the wings including Gabberts younger brother.
Is Gabbert done after this year? First round pick. Don't really see his stock going up.
What QBs are in this draft? Mallet, perhaps Luck, Locker and Newton. Anyone else I'm missing?
No way he goes 1st round. Never takes a snap under center, panics under any kind of pressure and is horrific when forced to his left. Think Ryan Leaf with this guy.
Draft book on Gabbert is that he's the 4th best underclassman, but there's a huge gap between 3 and 4.
Never know with a QB in the draft, though. Gabbert's got good measurables and he should test well in shorts. Always a chance that a team falls in love with him and he goes in the 2nd or 3rd.
Definitely not first round, but first day. There aren't many QBs coming out worth a crap this year. He has a lot of measureables. The NFL likes those. Too much in fact. Agreed he's going to be a bust, but then again we all though Freeman at KSU was going to be crappy too and he's doing well. With guys like Bradford showing you can go from a spread to an NFL O I could definitely see a team taking him in the 2nd. Early second even.
Gabbert does have the measurables and he throws a great ball. I think that he has been hurt by coaching and some NFL team will look at it the same way. Of the spead QBs in college this year I like Gabberts physical tools the best. For him the ideal situation would be to get drafted in the middle to late second round by a team that doesn't need him to step in or step up immediately. Let him back-up for a couple of years and learn the pro game then step in. In this situation he could end up as good as anybody out of this draft.
Force him to step in and play right away, especially with a bad team and all his bad characteristics will be re-enforced and he could turn into an interception and losing machine.
I tend to believe that outside of a few rare individuals QBs success in the pros has as much to do with the situation they go into as it does with talent. Look at all the QBs that the Bengals have ruined over the years compared with what happened with Montana and Young going into Bill Walshs system in San Fran. Not saying those guys would have been bust but Montana wasn't anything special talentwise or at ND (3rd round choice) and ended up in the HOF, Young was pretty mediocre at Tampa Bay before going to the niners, result HOF.
Niners- Do. Not. Do. It.
