And we’re off to a hot start at SEC Media Days 2013 — first, we had commissioner Mike Slive reach into his Brag Bag, then Will Muschamp took a shot at Ohio State, and now Missouri quarterback James Franklin is turning a few heads.

Today during individual interviews, Franklin struck a chord with Missouri fans when he insulted his own fan base. 

The PowerMizzou.com blog added some clarification to the situation: 

It doesn’t seem like this was a malicious or bitter comment from Franklin, but it won’t exactly endear him to Mizzou fans, either. There is one thing we know for sure though — this won’t be the last crazy comment of SEC Media Days — we’ll keep you posted as others surface.
