(MU FootballApp) -- On Media Day, Mizzou quarterback James Franklin talked Indiana defense with reporters. While much of the Tiger offense will be reactive, the senior said the team and staff noticed some things they can exploit.

On being forced to run the ball based on the defense…

“It just depends on the success and failures that we (the offense) have. If teams continue to do it to us, we’ll adjust accordingly. We are just going to have to wait and see.”

On scouting Indiana’s defense…

“Predominately, on second down they bring pressure. For the most part they play a 4‐3 scheme, but if it is second down, from what I have seen it is 70‐80 percent pressure. They are always going to bring someone. They seem to have basic corner coverage, and we just have to outplay them.”

On determining plays during the game…

“It is 80 percent dependent on what the defense does. Rarely do we force it to this guy no matter what. It is 50‐50 one‐on‐one matchups. I don’t know that it is a force or not, but it is predetermined because I know I want to throw it to them. For the most part, it is what the defense shows.”
