Missouri QB James Franklin is doubtful for Saturday

Missouri’s starting quarterback is expected to miss his second consecutive game when Mizzou comes to Lexington this Saturday.  Franklin sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee during the first quarter against Vanderbilt on October 6.

Redshirt freshman Corbin Berkstresser is projected to start in Franklin’s place. He completed 12 of 29 passes for 126 yards and two interceptions against Alabama.

    Just doesn’t matter – I’m sure our secondary will make the dude look like Peyton Manning.

    UK’s secondary usually allows the freshmen quarterbacks it faces to look like Heisman candidates, and I don’t expect any different out of this unit Saturday.

    Re-check ur schedule Franklin…..typical of this site. Too busy writing about how “UK is gonna win out the last 4 games” or that “Jalen Whitlow is a future star” to even know where the game is being played at.

    Hey instead of making fun of our team lets actually root for them. Heck I know its crazy to root for your own team but I’m gonna try. For some reason I am having second thoughts on getting rid of Joker this year. I honestly think unless we can get a Leach or Petrino we are better off waiting a year when maybe competition for a coach will be less. Plus with our youth being healthy we may get better? We are not gonna win many games next year regardless and I don’t want to get another bad coach just for the sake of change.

    #15 are you for real. I case you’ve missed it we have only won 1 game! We haven’t been competive in any other game then UGA. We are the joke of the SEC and the 3rd best team in our own state. Fire Joker yesterday. Do I even need to bring up the Arkansas fiasco, I don’t think you can call that a game. Even god gave us the mercy rule there. Thankful we have a merciful god or that could have been a 70 or 80 point spread, it was just a little over a half and we were down that bad!

    Nice thing about playing Kentucky,,,,you don’t need your starters in the game to win. The backups and third string get plenty of playing time. You want another pending disaster,,,,bring the Joke back next year.
