The KC Star article on Franklin is not encouraging:

http://www.kansascity.com/2012/09/24/3832349/missouris-franklin-wants-to-cut.html



COLUMBIA -- In the moments after Missouri’s 31-10 thrashing against South Carolina on Saturday night, a somewhat subdued James Franklin was sure he would learn a few things from the game film.

On Monday, Franklin — who was slightly more upbeat and just as candid — stated what those things were.

“I could definitely tell from watching the film that I just wasn’t in the same rhythm and doing the things that I usually do in games,” said Franklin, MU’s quarterback. “It was definitely disappointing.”

In general, Franklin said, he was way too cautious, way too tentative and way too ineffective. He finished 11 of 18 for 92 yards passing, rushed 15 times for 6 yards and accounted for zero touchdowns.

“I didn’t realize it was so obvious until I was able to actually watch the film,” Franklin said.

Franklin’s performance Saturday was surely a far cry from last season, when he emerged as one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the nation by passing for 21 touchdowns and rushing for 15 more.

Of course, Franklin wasn’t dealing with the injuries then that he is now. He underwent surgery in the spring to repair a torn labrum he suffered in March and missed the Arizona State game on Sept. 15 because of a bursa sac in the same shoulder that became inflamed after he took a big hit against Georgia the week before.

Franklin said the shoulder again bothered him Saturday, adding that the pain he felt every time he threw the ball shook his confidence. This is not his first time he experienced shoulder pain — he said he felt some last year — but in the past, it always went away during games.

Not so this season.

“It’s almost like I’m worried about doing it (delivering throws) because the pain is going to be there and I doubt that I’ll be able to put something on this throw or make that type of throw,” Franklin said. “It’s more mental than physical.”

Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said Franklin can play better but added that the offense’s struggles — the Tigers gained 255 yards and reached the other side of the field only twice under Franklin’s direction — weren’t all on his quarterback.

“I think he’s doing OK,” Pinkel said. “Generally, any time you look at an offense, especially our offense, that is struggling, then you are going to point to the quarterback …(but) we look at the receivers, we look at the offense line, and all of the other aspects of it.

“I believe in him and expect him to get a lot better.”

Franklin said he appreciated his coach’s support and added that while the presence of backup Corbin Berkstresser — who led Missouri to a win against Arizona State in his absence — is pushing him to play better, several teammates have also been supportive despite his struggles.

“The guys, they were still being positive, (saying things) like ‘Don’t worry about it, you’ve just got to get back to your old self and just keep playing and feel comfortable and have fun,’ (that) kind of thing,” Franklin said. “I know there’s probably a few of them that are upset, but I know they did a good job of just uplifting me and letting me know to forget about it and move on to the next game.”

Franklin will begin that effort this week in practice, where he says he will make a concerted effort to get over the doubts that crept into his head last week because of the injury. The fact he made it through Saturday’s game is a start.

“Although it’s going to hurt, I know that hopefully — at least based on what it has shown in the past — it’s not going to get any worse,” Franklin said.

He also plans on reverting to his old running style of last season, the one that helped him gain almost 1,000 rushing yards. Pinkel maintained all offseason that Franklin, who repeatedly fought for extra yards and finished off his runs last season, needed to do a better job of picking his spots. But Franklin, a junior, is tired of playing it safe.

“I think I’m going to try to make an adjustment this week to not run dumb — I know that sounds pretty bad — but just kind of (get back to) how I used (run) and not necessarily just get a couple yards and duck down, but try to make more happen,” Franklin said.

That said, expect a more aggressive Franklin this week against Central Florida, both running and passing.

“That’s something I definitely want to fix because it’s obviously not working and I’m not really being productive from my position,” he said. “And if I’m not productive or at least doing things decent, then it really makes the offense struggle as a whole, and that’s something that we can’t have.”

I actually have a frayed labrum right now; it's creating a lot of tendinitis and inflammation in the shoulder and it hurts like crazy anytime I throw. I've had to move across the infield because I have to put a hump on the ball to get it across.

If he's feeling anything similar to what I'm feeling (and it kinda sounds like he is), there's no way he can be effective out there. The shoulder feels loose and fire shoots through it anytime you try to muscle up. The only thing you can do to keep it tolerable is to essentially flex the shoulder as you throw and give it more wrist/elbow snap to compensate for the decreased whip motion in the joint.

If this is honestly his labrum acting up again, he's toast. Even if he can fight through the pain, the velocity isn't going to be there.

We got a look from Gunner Kiel and ended up snagging the most prolific passer in HS football history last year.

I'd say we're already attracting interest from some of the top throwing QBs in the country, wouldn't you?

How 'bout we take DGB out of the bubble-wrap this week? Vandy shouldn't be able to apply the overwhelming pressure that's been keeping our routes short. Franklin should have time to look downfield if he wants to.

Lets send DGB on some go routes if nothing else and see if he can make a play on a ball or two. It's time to start using this kid if we have any interest in continuing to snag the high recruits. Don't think for a moment that the SEC HCs aren't going to use DGB against us in the recruiting wars if they don't start using him a little more.

Replace Franklin with Berkstresser and I would agree. IMO I think Berk has a sronger arm and a quicker release than Franklin.

Pinkel's last three QBs at Mizzou are in the NFL, and he developed a ton of future NFL QBs at Washington. If he's not playing Berkstresser, there's likely a good reason why.

I'm concerned that our offensive line can't block for a go route, although I'd sure like to see us try it sometime.

A go route really doesn't take a lot of time. From a protection standpoint, it's relatively easy to block for.

Probably because the kid:

Is inconsistent
Doesn't consistently make good decisions
Takes away a big part of the run game playbook

It's funny how people (especially on PowerMizzou) panic after one quarter season in which Missouri doesn't receive star quarterback play. The Tigers have had almost a decade of strong QB play under Pinkel, with the only exceptions being Year 1, Year 3, and the start of this season. That's a pretty amazing success rate.

Berkstresser has a big arm. But a big arm doesn't a magical offense make...

Saul Good
09-25-2012, 02:06 PM
The biggest concern I have isn't his health. It's that he took the snap and immediately stood flat-footed again. He should be beyond that by now. It's an entirely unathletic posture, and it slows down everything he does. If I were coaching, I'd have pulled him after the first play. The moment he does that shit, he needs to be benched for the series.

Berks did it too against Arizona State. Until proven otherwise, I'm forced to conclude that the flat-footed stance is something that the quarterbacks coach is teaching Mizzou quarterbacks.

hmmm..Interesting thought....Also think that Yost is designing plays to match Franklins strengths(which is the option of running)..maybe design the plays to match Berks strength(which is his arm, a true QB) and he would be better than Franklin.

I think that's the long and short of it.

In the SEC you have to be a passer or a runner - Franklin is some hybrid version where he is both but neither.

Newton and Tebow were winners because they were runners, elite, powerful runners. Franklin isn't that. He's not as strong, fast or agile as either of those 2.

Alternatively you can be a strong-armed passer like Bray, Wilson or Murray. Gabbert would have fit this mold. Berkstresser is close if he can develop his decisionmaking.

But Franklin strikes me as stuck in the middle and I don't think you can get away with that unless you're extremely accurate. Connor Shaw looks like that may be the type of QB he is. Chase Daniel could have been very similar to Shaw. You have to hope that Mauck is as well.

Oh, you can also have the most hellacious defense in the world like LSU or Bama and NFL talent everywhere but quarterback, that's one way to go about it.

I just don't see the hybrid passer thing working very well against this kind of competition.

I think Franklin does that flat-footed thing more and/or more radically than other MU QBs. I remember last year (Franklin's first as a starter) my Dad mentioning to me how much that drove him nuts, and I agreed. If Daniel and Gabbert did it too, it sure didn't stick out nearly as much.

09-25-2012, 02:38 PM
Re: Run game vs. SEC defenses... with Missouri's trouble on the offensive line, that's going to be difficult under any circumstances. I'm a firm believer that even with a running QB, Missouri needs to add more triple option to its running game (Either from a two-back set, or from a areceiver in motion, or from a shovel pass on the backside, etc) to be successful running out of the zone read with any consistency.

Re: the flat-footed delivery...

That's something that's been around since Chase Daniel started at QB. I'm not sure what the reasoning is there or what the mechanic is, but it seems to be something they do when there is a pre-snap read dictating where to go (Seems to happen most vs. cover 3/on out patterns).

Mauk is (reportedly) pretty accurate and has a pretty strong arm. His release is a little odd, but it's not bad.

He doesn't have the cannon Berkstresser does, but reports on their accuracy coming out of HS are quite different. Mauk is supposedly much more advanced (which makes sense, considering Berk had crap QB coaching until Thomas took over before his SR year).

Just don't know if Franklin is going to be healthy enough to be effective this year. The player we saw last year was certainly a powerful enough runner and an accurate enough passer to be successful, even in the SEC. But this year's version sees him running tentatively and checking down practically as soon as he gets the football.

Adding to the problem is that the snaps, even when accurate, aren't crisp, accentuating any and all protection issues and speeding up the defense.

Mizzou has had success on quick slants and patterns to the middle of the field. And, FFS, the offense has to make some effort, any fucking effort, to stretch the field, even if it's just for show.

It damn well shouldn't.

If we need DGB to beat Vandy, we're in a world of shit.

With Lucas, Moe, Sasser and Hunt, we should be in fine shape from a WR standpoint.

I'd gladly swap DGB for Fisher right now and that's essentially what we got.

Hope you're right. Right now our offense is Casselian.

It's going to take more than DGB to fix that.

It appears the coaches have no faith in Franklin's ability to stand in the face of a rush and make his progressions (nor should they).

To get this offense on track, Franklin will have to show that he's capable of waiting for the routes to develop, the O-Line will have to give him a little time to prove that and the coaching staff will have to buy that he's going to be able to continue doing that with some consistency.

I really do think the staff would like to open up the game plan a bit, but Franklin's skittish nature in the pocket is preventing it (as is the scattershot arm). Perhaps if the make-shift line can give him a few easy throws, it will build his confidence and he can start getting the staff to believe in him a little bit more.

It's a pretty nasty combination of shortcomings that are hurting us right now, though.

No, I haven't. Sorry. I suspect it's similat to what we do when the Chiefs play.

I'm in CA. I just saw the rain pouring during the game and a girl I know who was there texted me and said about 30% of the crowd got the hell out just before the delay was called. And from the looks of it, most did not return.

Although it's been years since I've been to Faurot Field (my last forays were 98 and 00) I didn't spend much time in the parking lot. The place wasn't real friendly to KSU folks when we were winning.

Golden Age of Missouri football is still the Dan Devine era, though this is the next-best one.

As for Printz... he's an awesome get because he gives Missouri QB depth in this class, something I think they have to focus on moving forward (considering the injury problems with Franklin this year and inadequate play from Berkstresser.

He's also a pretty good player. Very productive in a tough football district, good size, good arm strength. He's also very intelligent.

Vandy was perfect weather and the tailgating was crap. I was a little disappointed, to tell you the truth.

Part of the problem right now is that there just isn't a tailgating 'area'. The parking lots are spread out around the stadium and there's no central location like The Grove.

That and the fact that Mizzou has a long LONG way to go to build the tradition that the boys in 'Bama are used to seeing. I'm not sure what they expected to see on the first go-round, in the rain and with the football team struggling pretty badly right now.

Personally, I'm pretty "Meh" about that. Starting the series this year or next year seems to make no difference. But I'm also not as fired up to play Arkie as some Mizzou fans are...

Zach - You touched on something I agree with completely. I don't give a flying f*** if the other SEC fanbases:

1) Accept Mizzou
2) Like Mizzou
3) Think our tailgating is "SEC worthy"
4) Think we belong

I really think that point came after Georgia fans where still raging cockholsters at Faurot and we still took shit from the frat boys from GA that were upset we didn't wear suits to a football game.

I'm content doing our own thing at this point.

That said, the tailgating scene was still lousy at Vandy (and I was at a wedding for Bama so I can't speak to it).

It's not an SEC thing, I'm an Arrowhead disciple - I have expectations of tailgating that aren't being met by Mizzou right now.

And, and double fuck you to Gary Pinkel for not having the stones to throw Richardson off the team after he let his teammates down. It's senior day and our best bet for a bowl berth and that dumbass gets suspended because he didn't want to do back-boards to make up for missing class.

If that's not a huge fuck you to your teammates, then nothing is. "Nah, I don't want to do extra work so I'm just going to get myself suspended instead...good luck on Saturday, fellas."

Pinkel could've at least earned some points back by throwing that shitheel off the squad. But no, he'll be welcomed back for the thrashing in College Station.

That was a great pickup and we're likely going to lose him because Yost can't run an offense and Steckel still hasn't figured out that Randy Ponder is getting the shit kicked out of him by Alec Lemon.

Just got off the phone with LSW LB Nick Ramirez. Seems intent on going to college with best friend & four-star teammate Jamone Boyd. #Mizzou

Boyd and Ramirez both attended #Mizzou's 31-27 loss to Syracuse. Ramirez says the loss was disappointing, but he's still considering MU

Ramirez said Staley QB Trent Hosick - who helped convince him to commit to #Mizzou in April - texted him today, said he understood.

Ramirez once said he sees himself in the Big 10 or SEC, but he's considering K-State b/c of their success. He likes Purdue b/c of academics.

I still can't believe Pinkel suspended Richardson. Is Richardson a selfish moron? Yep. But he also knows he's going to be a millionaire in a few months, and doesn't give a fuck about going to class. Wow, big shock there. But you've got his services available for TWO more games, one of which you know you're going to lose whether he plays or not, and you need ONE more win to get a bowl. Brilliant time for our drunk driving douche of a coach to take the moral high road. No Richardson means no pass rush, which totally exposes the shitty secondary, which put up the most hideous display of failure I've seen since the Colts/Chiefs 2003 playoff game. Only the idiot quarterback of cocksucking Syracuse ain't Peyton Manning. :shake:

In the end, though, these idiots don't deserve a bowl game - they probably just get beat anyway. One more game and this part of the shittiest fall for football I can remember is over.

I hear you. I understand what Pinkel was saying, but for a guy who isn't accomplishing the goals outlined for him by his boss (to get to avoid being FORCED to make changes), it was a weird decision.

Pinkel was told he had to get to 7-5 to be able to keep his staff intact. SInce he hasn't...

Bruce Walker and Brian Jones are almost CERTAINLY gone. Nice guys, but poor recruiters and only OK coaches don't survive in the SEC.

Dave Yost MIGHT be safe if he and Pinkel will accept him being demoted and a new OC being given complete control of the offense.

Cornell Ford is a good recruiter and an OK coach. He is questionable, but his ties to key St. Louis spots would make him a tough cut. If you feel like you can line up a guy like Mike Jones as a position coach, you probably can do this.

Andy Hill is safe. His position consistently features the best performance of any Mizzou position (WR) and he is an excellent recruiter in the KC area.

Josh Henson is safe. He's a great recruiter and great coach.

Alex Grinch is Pinkel's nephew, but he seems to have done a decent job on the recruiting trail and is a pretty good position coach to the casual eye (safety play has been much better this year, even from Matt White). Not sure where he would slot.

I'm concerned about the interior (Hoch will be solid and I think a healthy Vincent will, too. Depth is a concern here, though), but they should be pretty good on the ends with Sam and Ealy, and Ray off the bench.

There are going to be a lot of question marks on defense, though.

duncan:

I'd be interested in getting your take on this year....while I am disappointed overall, it has been a year where MU has had a much stronger schedule so expecting a great year out of this first season might have been a stretch.

We've played Alabama, FL, GA, South Carolina and this game today against aTm.....that's a pretty rugged schedule compared to what we played in the Big 12.

What are your positives/negatives on this year?

(Any other MU fans can chime in here too)

DeezNutz
11-24-2012, 02:45 PM
QB play has been so poor this year that it alone is enough to justify Yost's head. I cannot begin to fathom why they're taught to stand flat-footed in the pocket, in as unathletic a position as humanly possible.

Whether we're talking baseball or football, poor throws are almost always the result of poor footwork, and Yost goes out of his way to ensure the latter, creating an impressive hurdle to overcome for success.

The handling DGB has also been infuriating. Psst...bubble screens to shifty, long-striding receivers can be pretty successful. Apparently, though, there's a rule that once something works great (see first series last week) one cannot go back to that same well (see the rest of the game last week).

Complete train wreck. I've backed Pinkel consistently, but there's been a whole lot of stupid from the staff this year, so much so that I'd be fine with his departure.

Fuck it. Go full classic SEC. Bring in that loathsome cockbag Petrino, let him bang a few secretaries, but let him also compile a shit ton of victories.

(Any other MU fans can chime in here too)

This year is a clear disappointment. I think you can point to several factors:

1) THe sudden frailness of James Franklin. Coming into Spring Ball, we were hearing how Franklin played through cracked ribs, swollen knees, back pain, etc throughout 2011. Then he injures his throwing shoulder in a freak Spring Ball accident, injures it again against Georgia, injures his knee against Vandy, gets a concussion vs. Syracuse.

Not having a healthy Franklin on the field definitely cost MIssouri the Vanderbilt game, likely cost Missouri the Syracuse game, and might have cost Missouri the Georgia game (Mizzou was up 14-7 when he was hurt, and had moved the ball well while hitting on some big plays early).

Just add wins instead of losses for Vandy and Syracuse, and you're looking at 7-4 heading into this aTm game - right where just about everyone predicted they'd be at the start of the season.

2) The OL woes. Yes, Pinkel and company have not done a super amazing job recruiting here. But the only members of the original, fall-camp two-deep who have played without any interruption are true freshman G Evan Boehm and walk-on G Max Copeland. Three of the two deep never made it to this season: No. 6 OL Taylor Chappell, the top reserve tackle, 3-year starter LG Travis Ruth (No. 4 OL), and solid reserve guard Mark Hill retired due to health issues (No. 7 OL). Then RG Jack Meiners (No. 3 OL) hurt his knee against SE LA, and has been hobbled ever since. Then Elvis Fisher (No. 1 OL) hurt his knee against Georgia, and has been hobbled ever since. Then Justin Britt blew out his knee against Florida (No. 2 OL). C Mitch Morse (No. 5 OL) has also missed time with knee issues.

Any OL is going to look rough in that situation.

3) Lack of adjustment offensively. I agree that Yost thinks too much and gets too clever sometimes. There's not enough willingness to just go to the well on his part.

4) Underperforming pass defense. Missouri still struggles to defend 4 WR sets, because Dave Steckel still insists on sticking with a nickel, 2 LB package even against 5 WR. THis does a few things:

- It signals to the offense you're almost certainly in a zone look.
- It forces you to give one of the LB extra safety help, which detracts from the two-deep zone look

I'd point to poor pass defensive scheme as the reason for the loss to Georgia and the loss to Syracuse.

I don't know that Mizzou's schedule is THAT much stronger than it was a year ago. The difference is not that big. Mizzou just isn't quite as good, mostly because of the injuries at QB and OL.

I'm ready to close the book on this season, and will be glad to see what changes come next year. It will be a big season for Mizzou, and the schedule becomes quite a bit easier, hopefully.

@ Ole Miss instead of Alabama at home (Much, much easier game, though Ole Miss will likely be solid)

Tennessee, Florida, aTm at home (Much easier, though that's likely a 1-2 stretch)

Non-con schedule becomes much easier, too.

Shit I just heard a rumor they'd (MU) would be possibly going after Andy Reid once he's fired. WTF? LMAO What the hell is going on w/ MU sports right now?

That's about as far-fetched as it gets. Though I've been joking for a month now that Andy Reid would be a great surprise hire for when Auburn inevitably fired Gene Chizik (that day was today).

Wonder if Tuberville would like a return to the SEC?

Shitty NFL coaches make pretty good college coaches.

Not as crazy as it seems. Reid coached at Mizzou for 3 years back in the day.

I don't buy the Andy Reid rumor, though he does have ties to Mizzou (he was part of Bob Stull's staff in the late 80s/early 90s).

I would be surprised if Alden's next coach doesn't have head coaching experience on the college level. And NFL head coach doesn't count.

I've posted it on here before, but I was told back in September - before any sense of Pinkel being in real jeopardy - that Paul Rhoads and Kyle Whittingham were on Pinkel's short list (that he always keeps, just in case - part of being an AD).

I'd expect Charlie Strong and Dan Mullen would get calls. Strong is probably at the top of the list.

Reid is not a bad coach, I just think he has outlived his time in Philly. I think he could do well at the collegiate level if he is able to recruit. If he can't then he will struggle mightily.

Why not Gus Malzhan? He's done a good job at Arkansas St. and has ties to the SEC.

Is it true that Pinkel is resigning?

John L. Smith needs a job.


In all seriousness, character issues or not, someone would be nuts not to pick up Bobby Petrino. I just hope it isn't in the SEC, because I don't want to have to play him.

Would make things interesting for DGB.

Petrino would be a great replacement for Pinkel.
