Abstract: A simple consequence of a theorem of Franks says that whenever a continuous map, $ g$, is homotopic to angle-doubling on the circle, it is semiconjugate to it. We show that when this semiconjugacy has one disconnected point inverse, then the typical point in the circle has a point inverse with uncountably many connected components. Further, in this case the topological entropy of $ g$ is strictly larger than that of angle-doubling, and the semiconjugacy has unbounded variation. An analogous theorem holds for degree-$ D$ circle maps with $ D > 2$.
