There are few factors that, at face value, set apart Missouri backup quarterback James Franklin. He’s funny, but even starter Blaine Gabbert will crack a joke.

With Franklin, the differences are in the details, and when you’ve spent time with him you realize just how unique those details make him. His humor is different, more genuine and guileless, and his politeness isn’t just a means to evade questions. His religion, though so much less overt than many athletes', is deeper — there’s no need to talk about it — and it drives everything he does.
