Earlier we said the No. 1 goal for Mizzou on Saturday against Miami (OH) should be to get Blaine Gabbert back on track. He had a so-so game last Saturday against San Diego State and when he plays, the Tigers usually win.
Miami (OH) head coach Michael Haywood seems to agree.
"That is a serious concern," Miami head coach Michael Haywood said. "When you look at our defense, the best thing that we do is stop the run, try to make you one-dimensional. In their case, they want to throw it."
Haywood admitted that defense is "not our strong point" and the Tigers pose a stiff test.
I imagine this will be Gabbert's game to get some confidence rolling before Big 12 Conference play opens in two weeks against Colorado.
