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

    Who is James Franklin?

    Isn't this the guy who said something like, "I only hire coaches with hot wives, because it shows what kind of man they are."?

    ...and you expect class and decorum from him?

    Something's not exactly right with that guy. Doesn't mean he isn't a decent coach, but there is no telling what he is going to say. He is like a less entertaining Les Miles in that regard.

    When do we play Vandy again?

    Only part of this whole thing that matters...but not much. Pretty sure he just assured his team of a brutal beat down every time they meet Bama on the football field, at least while both current hc's are still in place. Think after the next time Bama plays Vandy, he's gonna owe his players a huge apology.

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

    Franklin's comments raise for me an interesting philosophical point about whether my attitude toward a particular school/football program maps more to the person who happens to be the head coach, or to the history of Alabama's experience with the program and the general attitude of the school's fan base. Historically, Vanderbilt has been a benign presence in Alabama's football experience, the pesky academic school that now and again comes up with a competitive team. Franklin's petty characterization of Nick Saban causes me to hope for the implosion of Vanderbilt's football program. For my part, Vanderbilt can just drop again to the cellar of the SEC and stay there.

    Less entertaining or just less principled, Craig?

    Depends on one's sense of humor, I suppose...

    Maybe entertaining from a "Awwww... Vandy. Aren't they a cute little football team?" perspective.

    I tend to agree and think Franklin's a jerk, but think about it. Would you really want to see little old Vandy displacing UT from the very bottom of the SEC?

    As long as Vandy loses to us and beats UT, I don't care what their coach says.

    LOL, I forgot all about him saying that about his coaches and their wives.

    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.
    That reminds me, what are we going to call the Barn's new coach? We've had Tater Tot, Tubby and Cheesy. Is there something we can make out of Gus Malzahn's name?
