07:09 AM ET 07.11 | The hints are certainly there. Is this further proof that Missouri's quarterback job is truly James Franklin's to lose? The senior has been chosen to attend SEC football media days next week in Hoover, Ala., where he'll meet the throng of reporters alongside teammates L'Damian Washington and Andrew Wilson and Tigers coach Gary Pinkel. When spring practices concluded with the April 20 Black and Gold scrimmage, Pinkel said the quarterback competition between Franklin, Maty Mauk and Corbin Berkstresser will resume during preseason camp ... but teams rarely, if ever, choose a projected backup to represent the team at conference media days, especially at the quarterback position.

The miserable aggies picked a bad time to have a sinking spell. They weren't very good the last couple of years in the Big 12. It may be a long, long time before they get their head above water in the SEC...if ever.

But hey, they have a lot of cash rolling in for all those losses...similar to an FCS team getting paid for the slaughter. Sounds like some other teams I know.

The Christians didn't get paid when they were thrown to the lions did they?

Senior's privilege. Not much else. Merit, not rank, should be Pinkel's criteria.

Much ado about nothing.

Big MO, just above the Vols this year, maybe, or maybe not.

Your blueness is only going to carry you so far, 0-6...

Yeah, and I don't like who's cast as Beatrice.
