Vanderbilt is paying its football coaches competitive SEC salaries now. Franklin made a little more than $1.8 in 2011, which was a slight step up from Bobby Johnson's salary in 2010. Then Williams appeased him with substantial raises and new contracts after each of his first two seasons. The fact that Williams said Vanderbilt could and would be competitive with anything Penn State offered Franklin tells potential candidates all they need to know.

"Here was James Franklin, a guy that despite his wins was still relatively un-established on a major scale, but yet David Williams had him at $3-plus million and was willing to give him more to keep him," CBSSports.com College Football Insider Jeremy Fowler said. "Other coaches are going to see that level of commitment and be very attracted to the job.

Vandy has some pretty deep pockets, and I'm sure they're looking to keep moving forward with their recent success rather than take a step back. Morris would be a good fit.

Also another nugget to remember-Corbin is the baseball coach there as well coming from Clemson as an assistant baseball coach.

C'mon Chad take the bait take the bait! Dabo's offense will be in shambles if that happens.

However, I don't expect it to really happen. It would be awesome though. I'd love to see what Morris could do with Vandy

A key difference is that Franklin had been coaching in college for over a decade, plus a year as WR coach in the NFL. On the other hand, the AD wants to make a splash hire, and Morris might just be that guy.

Spoken like a true Clemson fan. The truth is nobody knows if the next Coach will do better or not. Is it any easier to go to a school that expects win 10 to 12 games a year or win 7 or 8 at at Vandy?

I wouldn't necessarily say Watson already on campus is bad news for us. Clemson still has to block for the kid and there's no guarantees he's gonna be the starter.

Why are we still downplaying 5 star recruits? Seems to me were butt hurt that we can't land any. Really getting sick of us not being able to land high ranking talent.

Now, I'm not calling you an a-hole, but extend that logic to "those who have lost their minds" and it applies here.

What's our ranking as a whole? Please, spin it how you want but we're not even in the top 25. A team that's went 33-6 in three years shouldn't be having that problem. Bottom line!

Recruiting rankings don't matter unless we're ranked highly.

That makes absolutely no sense. Like I said you can spin it however you'd like. Fact of the matter is, we aren't getting the players we should be getting.

If you want to win recruiting battles, I am sure you would look good in orange.

I think you and evilchicken are related.
