    That's a cool video. I would probably start crying if someone gave me a full ride like that. Such a huge financial burden lifted.

    I'm a big fan of their coach. Franklin really has that program heading in the right direction IMO.

    Seems to be a good coach from the videos/interviews I've seen of him. I hope they have a lot of success this year, just not at our expense.

    Clemson University... you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

    Agreed. It'll be interesting to see if Vandy can keep him around (when and if other schools come-a-calling) for a year or two if he catches some success this season.

    I reserve my judgment of him until I see how hot (or not) his wife (and mistress) is (are).

    It's cool that we do this for a few walk-ons every year.

    James Franklin is a good coach. I think he will lead the team in the right direction.



    Which might not be a good thing for us, of course.

    He is a damn good coach. Am not sure if he will stay at Vandy or go to a bigger program. Vanderbilt is a school with a TON of money so if they wanted they could probably fork over the money to keep him and he could want to be like Spurrier and do it somewhere its never been done before, but it would be easier if he went to another school that has more tradition and easier academic standards. That being said, Stanford has proved and Virginia is on the way to again proving that you can have a school with high standards and be competitive. I just hope he doesn't bolt for Tennessee this offseason. If he goes to another SEC school, I want it to be USC after Spurrier leaves.

    Why do they have milk jugs with Vandy logos on them?

    I swear, it's easy to like Franklin. He has a good attitude and this just makes him even better. One of my favorite players in recent memory was Marty Markett. I love to see a guy walk on, bust his ass, and earn a scholly. Now Marty is in Atlanta and has a bright future. I hope this young man has a similar experience.....just as long as we still beat Vandy. Lol

    That's really cool for him to make the announcement in front of the team. Let's the other players know he will award players for their hard work and shows a tangible reward for doing so.
