Mizzou pizza party ends with busted nose

Missouri starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert and his younger brother, fellow Mizzou QB Tyler Gabbert, were involved in an altercation early Saturday morning that left the latter with a broken nose, both the Kansas City Star and Columbia Daily Tribune are reporting.

The Brothers Gabbert, along with linebacker Andrew Gachkar, were at a Columbia pizza joint just a little after 1 a.m. CT when they became involved in a “discussion” with a group of older males.  As oft times happens at that time of the morning on a weekend, the discussion ended with punches being thrown, the three football players briefly handcuffed, and Tyler Gabbert with his nose in a different position than it was when he walked into the place.

The manager of the Gumby’s Pizza said the unrest was nothing out of the ordinary.

It was just some really drunk people,” Noah Schmidt told the Daily Tribune. “Both parties are certainly to blame, but with all the confusion there’s really no way of knowing exactly who was at fault.”

That confusion led to no charges being filed by responding officers.

A MU official told the Star that a suspension for any player involved is not expected.

It’s a standard deal,” sports information director Chad Moller told the paper. “Everyone’s aware of it. Everything gets dealt with from an internal process. There’s really nothing more to it than that.”

    Sounds like the Mizzou officials know how to handle molehills without turning them into mountains.
    That’s what the players get for going to Gumby’s when they could have been at Shakespeare’s. Idiots.

    If the Gabbert families word was the cause of the punches being thrown, they probably told someone they’d definitely pay their bill if they were served then did Gumby’s like they did Nebraska and went back on their word. I’d say the punch was deserved…
