Franklin's Challenge: Following Up His Vandy Debut
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - James Franklin and his Vanderbilt Commodores now face their biggest challenge yet: Following up their first season together by winning in their second.
Vanderbilt has not won at least six games in consecutive seasons since 1974 and 1975 when the Commodores won seven games in back-to-back years. The Commodores went 6-7 and played in only the program's fifth bowl ever in Franklin's debut season, and he has 17 starters returning as they try to build on what they started together last year.
Franklin said they thought they could do some nice things last year and now believes they will do some really good things this year.
