Missouri-week off to a good start

Missouri-week off to a good start

You wouldn't have thought going into this season that the Missouri offense would be all the buzz. But thanks to sophomore quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who has thrown 11 touchdowns and no interceptions, that buzz is definitely there. It's just one of the many things defensive line coach Carl Pelini and crew have to prepare for. As he said after practice today, Missouri has more than just him.

Practice Notes: The starting dime linebacker will probably be Will Compton, but defensive line coach Carl Pelini said that it could be him, Sean Fisher or Phillip Dillard. Larry Asante is obviously back to practice, and the only noticeable wrap he has right now is about a mile's worth of tape around his left foot. But he's been practicing at full speed, so I wouldn't expect that to be an issue...
