Default Vanderbilt's HC- James Franklin named....... Next Penn State Coach

Per ESPN radio just a little while ago, James Franklin is a lock as the next head coach at Penn State. That guy has turned Vandy into a decent program and can't say as I'm too sad to see him moving on to an opportunity to turn that mess around with some integrity. Good guy.

Wow I bet Vandy is mad, finally got a good coach just have him taken away just when things were looking up for that club. I kind of feel bad for them, can't catch a break.

Wonder if we poach some of their recruits? They have some good players currently committed.

Can't say I'm sad to see him leave..they'll find someone though. He has proven you can compete there. Might this be the job for Morris?

Good. Vanderbilt used to be a guaranteed W on the schedule, but they've been a little scary the last few years. Hopefully this will send them back to where they came from.

I'd love to see Morris go. Just go. Don't know I want him at Vandy- just want to see Dabo curl up in a ball when the brains of the operation leave him- and he will, just a matter of time. But Dabo will no doubt spin it somehow to the positive!

Do Gamecock fans want him to leave? I haven't been impressed with him against us.

I was thinking the same thing, but I doubt we'll have room for any of them.

He's made them a mid-level SEC program in short order. With his own recruits, they're gonna get better. I just like to see a good coach get a better opp. Heck, he could be on my short list to replace HBC when he decides in 10 yrs to retire!

Default Re: Vanderbilt's HC- James Franklin named....... Next Penn State Coach

This may help us with our Stephenson HS recruits. Vandy was one team that kept taking their diamond in the rough players.

I think this helps us mostly with Khalil Ladler...who I think will be a stud corner when he graduates. Yes, Kenny Ladler's brother.

Penn State just wants a yes man they can push around and who will do it like Joe Pa. I hope Franklin gets a great payday because the BS he's going to have to put up with will be relentless.
