Missouri Tigers Head Coach Gary Pinkel has officially named James Franklin the starting QB for the Tigers. The Tigers are hoping that last years’ terrible record was a fluke and that they will be able to obtain a winning record and push their way into a top spot in the SEC as an elite team. Two years ago, Franklin threw for 2,865 yards and finished fourth in the Big 12 in passing efficiency behind future NFL picks Robert Griffin III, Brandon Weeden and Landry Jones. The Tigers season is set to begin against Murray State on August 31st.
