As it is its still a sizable black mark but a lot of fans will ultimately overlook his poor performance based on the result of the game.
That's good, I think. Franklin was a very, very important part of this season. He's had his ups and downs, and Yost did him no favors as far as development, but he's tough. I think he represented the school well on the whole. It's a good thing that he won't be remembered as the guy who single-handidly cost Mizzou a Cotton Bowl because he's meant more to Mizzou over the course of his career than a victory in an exhibition game does.
