08:16 AM ET 05.10 | One of the spring's enjoyable storylines was the quarterback competition at Missouri, which is up for grabs no more after Tyler Gabbert's apparent decision to transfer. "It's actually one of those things where you're taking a leap of faith," Chuck Gabbert said. ... "It's one of those things where he's looking for a new start and a fresh start." That search for a fresh start will begin with the numerous places that heavily recruited Gabbert as he was coming out of Parkway West. That may or may not include Nebraska, where Gabbert, like his older brother, initially committed. Or it could include Louisville, where family friend and former Nebraska offensive coordinator Shawn Watson now is. Oregon, Iowa and Wake Forest were among others who pursued Gabbert before.

Does anyone know if this is the old "if I can't start, I ain't staying" type of thing, living in brother's shadow or something else?

Nebraska can use a passer because Taylor ain't gonna make it in the B10 running the football.

Deep Creek, why not, won't they actually be the second best club in Texas this coming year, behind Baylor, at least that is what I have been reading.

We try to pretend they don't exist since they are a cult. We've had enough troubles with cults in Texas...Branch Davidians in Waco, Republic of Texas in Fort Davis, Aggies in College Station.

But the success of their women's hoops team makes it hard to hide them.

There is no way he lands up at Nebraska. Nebraska has Taylor Martinez, Cody Green, Brion Carnes, Ron Kellogg, and potentially (most likely not, but you can dream) Bubba Starling there. He couldn't beat out any of those guys. He had his chance to go to Nebraska when he committed there but then backed out. They've moved on and don't have scholarship room for him.

For sure, one would have thought they would have went to Montana before Texas.

..or Idaho. It's not like we don't have enough of our own crazies...we import some more...

I also forgot about the polygamy crew in Eldorado.

what his dad should have said is "its one of those things where he's been a spoiled brat all his life and then when he doesn't get his way he is taking his ball and going home."

Youth sports are full of those...and then they go to HS and College...see Adam James.

maybe it would be a good idea to trasfer to a pee wee league...then he might get a chance to start.

We don't want the little snot. I think he needs to find an NAIA program somewhere that doesn't mind a player running home to mommy every time something goes wrong. We had enough of that with Crouch.....

I never knew Crouch was that way.
