Vanderbilt coach James Franklin has offered to personally call a fan’s boss in order to get him out of work for the Commodores’ Thursday night showdown against Ole Miss.

Jerry Kill has done him one better in anticipation of Minnesota’s hosting of UNLV on the same Thursday night. The Gophers coach has released “Get out of work early” notes so fans can tailgate the season opener nice and early.

Seeing as the school sells beer inside the stadium, this might be a fantastic way to encourage fans to get it going and then keep it going – nice and rowdy – once in TCF Bank Stadium.
