08:17 AM ET 11.06 | The numbers are not kind to Missouri quarterback James Franklin. Survey the court of public opinion, particularly the ever-volatile one bubbling on social media, and [Franklin's] four interceptions at Florida on Saturday have made him a figure of ridicule unfit to lead the Tigers. ... Outside the program, most are focused purely on the interceptions, three in the second half in Florida territory -- including one in the end zone on fourth and 6 at the Gator 21 with 11 seconds left. Within, the emphasis is on the upside of the junior playing with pain and restrictions whose presence was crucial to the Tigers racking up 23 first downs and amassing 86 plays against Florida, a season-high against the fourth-best defensive team in the nation.

I really thought they would be more competitive this year. Quite a bit of the failure does fall unfortunately on the QB's shoulders as their offense is QB driven...

Went to vote already, made a mess.

Take it one day at a time....my FiL was not good after his attack...he had emergency triple bypass that night. He took it one day at a time, and has done extremely well. Good Luck and keep those you love in your thoughts.


And BTW, the mess was already made...by the politicians!

I think we should have on-line voting. Why go with snail mail when electrons are so much faster?

Yes Sir, but right now, one minute at a time. Go to the voting poll, right in the doorway, had a severe spasm, fell against door jamb, you never seen people move so fast, brought the sign in to me and a chair and brought me my forms to color in. Sad, we are reverted back to coloring.

What the 'ell you doing. Get your sorry old azzzz back in that bed and stay there.

DC, good point. I just can't see waiting in a line for 2/3 hours to vote.
