Gab­bert’s growth

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

The key to Mis­souri’s suc­cess un­der head coach Gary Pinkel has been the quar­ter­back, and Gab­bert ex­pects to im­prove with an­other year un­der his belt.

The ju­nior also comes into the sea­son healthy af­ter play­ing much of 2009 with an in­jured an­kle.

“We all know he had an in­jury,” Pinkel said. “The med­i­cal staff said he could play, and he bat­tled through that. … I ex­pect him to up his game with the ex­pe­ri­ence fac­tor.”

The 6-5 ju­nior said a steady at­ti­tude will be the biggest fac­tor.

“Stay even-keeled. You can’t get too high or too low,” Gab­bert said.
