This is a homer post and I’m going to justify it by saying it was the only game on tonight. Plus, it’s my blog so I can write what I want.
A quick note here, I have heard from Weller, so after yet another sabbatical, he is on his way back. Expect more NFL posts later this week.
Now, back to the Mizzou-Nevada game. As I’ve said several times here before, Mizzou’s new quarterback Blaine Gabbert is insanely good. Tonight, was the first real road test for Gabbert and the Tigers against a Nevada team that is better than their 0-3 record indicates. For whatever reason, the Wolfpack decided it would be a good idea to key on the Tigers’ running game which hasn’t found its legs this year and force Gabbert and the Tigers to throw the ball. They obliged.
Gabbert finished the day with a career high 414 yards and 3 TDs, leading his team to a 31-21 victory.
