Louisville football picked up a transfer this morning. Quarterback Tyler Gabbert has transferred to Louisville from Missouri. Tyler is the younger brother of Blaine Gabbert, the former Mizzou quarterback and No. 10 pick in this year’s NFL Draft. Tyler will sit out the 2011 season and have three years of eligibility at Louisville. Or should we say, he’ll play until he gets arrested.
Tyler’s decision to join the Cardinals is an interesting one. He has no ties to Louisville and the roster is pretty stacked with talented quarterbacks. The Cardinals already have Teddy Bridgewater, a highly-touted recruit out of Miami. Maybe Gabbert is just expecting the competition at quarterback to thin out once players start breaking those five core values – no lyin’, no stealin’, no druggin’, no shootin’, and no hittin’ women.
Congrats to Louisville on the new addition and congrats to Mary Jo on being closer to a Gabbert.
“Second Gabbert, Louisville first.”
