1. Gut feeling: what is the % chance that James Franklin starts at South Carolina this weekend?
2. What's your opinion on Steve Spurrier? Hate him, or just love to hate him?
3. Mizzou at South Carolina: what's your prediction?
4. Okay, so SBN United is coming. Very generally speaking, Rock M Nation is going to take on a look that quite a bit more similar to the current sports hubs at SBN.com (example here), with story streams (example here) and room for bigger stories up top, not just a top-down chronology of posts. Visually, it is quite a change, but I figure it won't be too bad as long as this community still has the water cooler aspect that has made it such a weird/great little community. So one of the "streams" I will always be maintaining is a general stream with all of the links posts, live threads, roundtables, etc., where people like to gather and only occasionally talk about Mizzou. I like this idea, and I think it will make the change less jarring. But ... what should this "water cooler" stream be called? The Water Cooler? Stankowski Field? Give me some potential names.
Self share alert! I'll be on The Closers today at 5:00 p.m. CT, and I'll be revealing, among other things, my weekend plans. Have a listen.
