Spring Update - Practice 2

Offense gets first win of spring

Columbia, MO- Tiger spring ball is in full effect, and the first win for the offense came on March 24th with a 10-7 victory over the defense.  Former Tigers Blaine Gabbert and Kevin Rutland were in attendance when Grant Ressel kicked the game-winning 45-yard field goal.  The quarterback spot is still in hot contention, as Blaine's younger brother, Tyler "T-Gab" Gabbert, James Franklin and Ashton Glaser are all competing for the starting job.  The 24th's practice went like this for the three contenders:
A. Glaser:
  • 17-28
  • 167 yds
  • 2 INT
J. Franklin
  • 13-20
  • 89 yes
  • 3 carries for 18 yds
T. Gabbert
  • 16-21
  • 211 yds
Brad Madison and newcomer at linebacker Denzel Martin both had the interceptions, and Madison returned his 43 yards for a score.

It was a win-lose situation for Ressel, who normally wears the same color jersey as the defense, as he kicked the game-winning field goal for the offense, but had to partake in the losing side's "up-down" drill.  I guess you could call that a "game-losing" field goal.
