    The Trib (Dave Matter): Pinkel on SEC: You've got to earn respect

    ● Quarterback James Franklin visited Pinkel's office earlier in the day and Pinkel described Franklin's range of motion in his right shoulder as "really remarkable." On Friday, Franklin will be five weeks out of surgery for the torn labrum in his throwing shoulder. Pinkel repeated what he's said for the last few weeks, that the team's medical staff expects Franklin to be back in time for the start of the season. "That being said, it's possible he may not be," Pinkel said. " For the most part we have a pretty good feeling that" Franklin will be back for the season. "But the only reason I asterisk that is because Corbin Berkstresser is our backup at this time … and bottom line, backup players need to get ready to pay."

    ● There was lots of talk on the conference call about Missouri having to adjust its no-huddle spread offense for the SEC defenses versus the SEC defenses having to adjust to MU's offense. Pinkel touched on the topic some, too. "We have a scheme that we believe in," he said. "So we'll run our scheme. But as we always do, we'll adjust if necessary. We will not make the statement that we'll do what we do regardless what anyone else does. … I don’t think that would be true. I think you always adjust accordingly. For the most part, we like our system. We intend to run it, but as we do with anything in our program, we'll evaluate and adjust if it's necessary."
