08:21 AM ET 03.14 | It was one quick play, but it spoke volumes. Nothing was open downfield, but against his better judgment, Missouri quarterback Tyler Gabbert launched a pass for the back of the end zone. In fact, he was aiming for the batting cage nets behind the end zone, some 50 yards away. "It was kind of a stupid thing," he said. ... "I was trying to throw it away. I should have just thrown it to the sideline." Instead, he settled for a game of show and tell, just in case anyone watching still doubted his arm. If anything has been established through four days of Missouri's first genuine quarterback competition in nearly a decade, Gabbert broke that secret yesterday: The redshirt freshman has the arm to challenge for the chance to succeed his older brother as MU's 2011 quarterback.

I'm puzzled...arm strength trumps accuracy and good decision making in a QB?

Carryover from street ball...the fake it to the batting cages, and hit you going to Miss Edna's flower garden.

Yeah, that way they can throw more interceptions with more zip on the ball!
