Franklin's Wins Most By Vandy Coach Since 1904-05

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- James Franklin has used the idea of one game at a time and worrying only about the next six seconds to help his Vanderbilt Commodores ignore the past and shake off adversity.

Now he faces his biggest challenge yet: Helping his Commodores handle success.

Franklin has more wins in his first two seasons (13) than any Vandy coach not named Dan McGugin. The Commodores (7-4) need a win to match the most victories in the regular season since 1982 going into the finale at Wake Forest (5-6) on Saturday.

The coach said Monday they have been through a gamut with different coaches, a lack of success and lots of negativity. He says now it couldn't be more positive and he's probably concerned about that more than anything.
