All signs continue to point to Missouri quarterback James Franklin being ready for the season opener against Southeast Louisiana on Sept. 1. "We feel like he’s going to be ready,” Coach Pinkel reiterated Tuesday. “But the bottom line with any injury is that you have to have your backup (redshirt freshman Corbin Berkstresser) ready to play.”
Even though coach Pinkel has continued to state that Franklin will be ready, the more I hear about it the more nervous I get. You have to factor the possibility that he won't be 100 percent into your decision to draft him this summer.
