    Re: Vanderbilt’s James Franklin calls Saban “Nicky Satan”

    Franklin has always been a little, shall we say, "bold" with his words. This doesn't surprise me at all.
    Immature and stupid, but I'm not going to get my feelings hurt over it. He can call our coach whatever he wants; our coach's team will beat his team. "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but we'll destroy you on the football field."

    Agreed. He isn't in the business to win style points with us or any other program other than Vanderbilt.

    I'd honestly have a lesser opinion of him if he said he wasn't going to work as hard as Saban does. I'd say the same about any coach like that.

    I don't think anyone is suggesting he should feel otherwise, but the oft-overused term of 'class' comes into play here. I guess I'm old-school, but I'd be mortified if CNS stooped to name-calling of other coaches. I expect more from a representative of my university.

    You're right. The use of the word "class" is way overused, and people are incredibly quick to throw that out as a "be all, end all" factor.

    And if a fan or two from another program are nice to us, then the program is deemed "classy." Likewise, a jerk or two render the entire program "classless." We, of course, are always & only "classy."
    (note: the above classification scheme is used by fans of any program in the country.)

    I can't disagree with that.

    I feel the same way. Dont care if you feel it, but in your position, you're held to a higher standard, and that isnt meeting it.

    Vanderbilt’s James Franklin calls Saban “Nicky Satan”

    Silly, and I doubt he really hates CNS...weak attempt at getting the kids to like him.

    It's pretty obvious he's always been a loose cannon. Done a good job for the 'dores? Yes. Probably won't be there much longer unless there are reasons other than his mouth to steer clear of him by other schools. Don't know if there could be any cheating at Vandy, but in view of his mouth and calling CNS names, then I'm betting there's a ton of negative recruiting at the least in view of Vandy's 'superiority' in all things including football now.

    I really think we should get an expert in here to determine the "classiness" level of this statement before we go any further...
