The James Franklin bandwagon is now accepting more applications…
Last weekend James Franklin invited Andrew Kittrel with him for a full game day experience. Andrew was born missing one of his legs and a few fingers. He still plays football and is a big Vanderbilt fan.
Well done coach. Well done.

Vanderbilt Football head coach James Franklin joined Vanderbilt’s Move Crew early Saturday morning to welcome first-year students to campus.

When the Commodores open the season Sept. 3 in Vanderbilt Stadium, they’ll likely to be competing on one of the top grass surfaces in the nation.
The Dudley Field resurfacing project was the result of the U2 concert on July 2 when nearly 50,000 spectators jammed the stadium to watch the show. The grass surface needed to be replaced after U2 crews used heavy equipment to construct a massive circular performance stage in the middle of the football field.
I’m curious as to how many fans Coach Franklin is going to get in there… Seems to be revitalizing that place in every other facet of it’s being.

No live stream (that I could find), so here is a pic… that’s pseudo-live.

Anywhere else, this would be a ‘sobering up time’…
