CERPTS FROM CBS SPORTS' SEC CHAMPIONSHIP CONFERENCE CALL ON TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3

(Gary Danielson On James Franklin): James Franklin probably is the key to the football game. In modern day football, whether it's the NFL or college, your quarterback has to come through. He is going to have to be multi-dimensional to make an impact on the game. Even Johnny Manziel couldn't do it just throwing the ball.

(Danielson on How Mid-Season Injury to Franklin was Handled): I've been part of these quarterback controversies as a player so I'm familiar with it and how it can handle or change a locker room... The way Gary Pinkel handled it in the end was a brilliant move...It was a great strategy by Pinkel and it sold the team to everybody that there's competition for every position but I'm loyal to a guy who's done a good job for me.

(Danielson on Auburn's Mindset Coming off Two Legendary Games): The fact is neither of these teams is ranked number one or number two and they're not defending their position in the BCS Championship. I think they're going to come out loose and play a great football game. I don't think it's going to be a big factor (for Auburn). The style of play they run, downhill, the triple option, happens almost by instinct. There is not a lot of thinking. It's more reacting. Their defense hasn't stopped anybody anyway so how bad could they play? They're already used to having people throw the ball on them. It's not like they're going to melt when Missouri completes a couple passes. Everybody else has too.

(On Gary Pinkel And Missouri) I think Gary Pinkel has changed his philosophy a little bit. I think they run less finesse and bubble screens and more rough and tough zone read plays...Gary has had a long experienced coaching tenure. He has done a great job with the team, but I think this was a hungry team that wanted to prove that they belonged playing "big boy" football. Missouri is a much stronger mental team than they were a year ago.
