    You know that is a good point. BUT... Coach Bryant could back it up I'm not sure Coach Franklin can.

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

    Who cares what he called him? All those that are calling him immature for name calling, I hope that none of you have ever once typed or said any of the following:

    Cheez dip
    Cheez whiz
    Cheez it
    Lame Kitten
    Lame Kiffikens
    Urban Cryer

    well...you get my point. He's just having some fun at the expense of a rival school just like the rest of us do at some point. It's just seen in a different light because it's about us.

    For Franklin, though, his personality is partly responsible for him being where he is. It is part of why Vanderbilt hired him. It is why he was HCIW at Maryland. So, that part of Franklin's personality has been reinforced by his employers.

    James Franklin needs to take stock of himself if he thinks he was being witty.

    He was extremely disrespectful no matter what he said in his apology. He was also immature and CLASSLESS!

    If you have a problem with calling him classless, just ask yourself if you could ever see Coach Saban doing something like that. You won't, and that my friends is the difference between those with CLASS and those that don't.

    I will be as disrespectful and rude as board policy will allow me too while under the anonymity of the internet!

    But when I stand in front of my peers and the cameras I will call people by name and give thanks to Allah!

    You got some nerve fella calling us out! I shall be a hypocrite and I shall love it!

    It's seen in a different light because he's the head coach of a football program and making millions of dollars in front of millions of people for it. Not quite the same as using nicknames on a message board.
    That's the paradox of success. The moment you stop to enjoy it, you are in trouble. You have to keep moving forward. It's not what you have done that's important. It's where you are going.

    How many of us referred to another coach as pure evil? You know, 'Satan.' Calling someone cheese, a kitten or a cry baby is a lot different than calling someone Satan. And we're talking about a coach saying this, not some random fan or even a player. A head coach of a football team talking trash as if he's a fan. When you're the head coach you should carry yourself much better than that. Had Nick Saban said something like this I'm pretty sure most Alabama fans, if not all, would be embarrassed.

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

    I was criticized on here last year when I said Franklin was merely a more polished Trooper Taylor. I have never liked Franklin or Vanderbilt and never will. I hope the only games Vanderbilt wins are against auburn and ut. Out.

    and I mistakenly cheered for Vandy. I thought Franklin was a ok guy. Wrong on both counts.
    Heck, I even hope Auburn beats the guys with the pocket protectors. Take that.

    I believe Franklin knew exactly what he was doing. Throw a jab at the biggest target in the conference while the media is in attendance and you are sure to have your soundbite played over and over. It seems like he read the Kiffin book on public relations.

    It's just how name calling goes. You find an insulting name that is similar to the real one and go with it. His name is undeniably close to "Satan". Other programs' fans (and maybe even coaches) view him as being a mean, heartless person. Unfortunately that will be the his nickname long after you or I die when referred to by rival fans (i.e. any SEC team). It's not going to change. Just don't take it personally.

    Would I be embarrassed if a 61 year old man called other coaches names in front of the camera? Hell yeah I would. Franklin is just another name on the list of processees though. Maybe he is a fan of himself while also being a coach?

    I'm well aware that it's not going to end or change. Like I said, it wasn't a fan or a player that said it, it was a head coach. LSU and Auburn fans say it all the time and I don't think twice about it or even care. But this is a head coach who is supposed to represent a University and a football team in the best way possible. When he lowers himself to the point of name calling it is really sad.

    Yeah I agree that those in a position that will be heavily scrutinized by the public and/or media should watch what they say in front of the cameras, and I don't exactly think highly of this situation. My only beef was with those that said he was immature for name calling when it happens here every day as if anonymity makes it different in some way. Name calling is name calling no matter who is doing it.

    Also I give myself a for that last sentence.
