What’s more impressive: two straight BCS Championships by Alabama or two straight bowl appearances by Vandy.
Remember folks, this is Vandy we are talking about, a program that has never been to back-to-back bowl games in the history of the program.
No matter which one you choose, one thing’s for certain: James Franklin is one helluva coach and has earned the right to sit with the big boys at the SEC dinner table.
That includes Nick Saban, or as Franklin refers to him while addressing a high school audience, “Nicky Satan.”
“You know that guy at Alabama Nicky Satan? I’m going to outwork him. That’s our plan every single day”.
Go on Franklin, do your thang, you’ve earned that right by making Vandy a legitimate football team.
Vandy, you better lock this guy up for life.
