How many more wins would J-Mac have meant in 2006?

Sorry everyone, but I'm bored at work and was thinking about a question I'm not sure I've ever seen discussed.

Realizing of course that there's not a damn way to prove it, but do you think J-Mac's injury in the summer of 2006 was the difference between Mizzou's "good" 8-5 season (should have been 10 wins even without J-Mac) and the breakout season of 2007? I guess what I'm saying is this: would a healthy and difference-making J-Mac in 2006 have meant Mizzou would have broken out in 2006 instead of 2007?

It was basically the same schedule (probably an easier schedule in 2006, to be honest ... OU wasn't as good, nor was kU, Colorado or Texas Tech ... there was no Illinois on the schedule in 2006 ... TAMU is probably the only team that was appreciably better in 2006 than 2007). Most of the same talent, albeit a year younger than 2007. Anyone's thoughts?

With the likely difference in field position, as well as the extra dimension he brought to the run game, I'm thinking our offense would have been even more productive than it was in 06. Now granted, Chase D was only a sophomore in 06, but even at that, he was pretty good.

Sorry if you guys have discussed this before, but I'm antsy for this evening's game (and tomorrow's too) and wanted to discuss something Tiger football related.
