Mizzou football returns in a month or so and I for one am eager to see what the team's got this year. It's still baseball season, but college football is acceptable during the tailend of the summer game's schedule. The NFL, on the other hand, can wait until the World Series is over.
What appears to be true is the Tigers have a tough quarterback in Blaine Gabbert who is ready, willing and, hopefully, able to take the reins of the program. This article chronicles his ankle injury during last season and his bulldog attitude about getting on the field and leading the team when it would have been kosher to sit out for a game or two.
If the whole squad has this kind of guts, it'll be fun this year.
