Yep took Coach Poach Jimmy 4Jimmy exactly 3 day to destroy what he did in Nashville for 3 years....and in 10 days he has become one of the most hated persons ever in Vandy football history

Coach Mason will now walk in and rep all the rewards that Coach Poach Jimmy 4Jimmy threw away in 10 days.....Fruck Jimmy

AnchoDown guys....we back after a week of total Crap from Crappy Valley

Why? Did he leave on bad terms with people? Can't blame him for wanting to coach at a football school.

He strung them along supposedly...and has been raiding the recruits he went after at Vandy.

His choice of OC will be extremely important.Ask Chizik.Vandy will need to be a little creative on offense so this should be interesting.

Excellent news! Good luck! I hope he turns out to be everything y'all want him to be.

If he turns out to be everything I want him to be Vandy will need to replace him.

Lol yea i read up on it. I guess it is a lil shady to take the recruits with him, although if i were a fball coach i'd do the exact same thing. Houndreds of hours of recruiting these kids and all for nothing?

Sucks for Vandy!

100's of hours recruiting him......on Vandys dime.

Yep, along with everybody else in Nashville or is a Vandy fan...read this just a short note from story about Coach Poach in the Nashville Tennessean:

As for Franklin, his change in venue requires a change in message. When he was at Vanderbilt, his recruiting approach was built around four key factors:

• Get a world-class education.

• Live in a great city.

• Make history instead of building on the history made by others.

• Play in the nation’s best conference.

Now that he’s at Penn State, Franklin’s message must be rewritten, to wit:

• Get a great education (Penn State ranks No. 37 nationally by U.S. News and World Report compared to Vanderbilt’s No. 17).

• Live in a cool college town in the middle of nowhere.

• Help return the program to its previous stature.

• Play in the nation’s fourth- or fifth-best conference.

Good luck with that, Coach Poach.

Here is the whole story...Coach Poach:




James Franklin got this one right.
Like Coach Poach says, some players — maybe even most players — commit to the coach and not the school during the recruiting process. It’s sad, but true.
That is Franklin’s best defense for the end-around run by three players that previously had made public verbal commitments to Vanderbiltbut instead are bound for Penn State, where he now coaches.
It’s easy to criticize Franklin but the blame is at least partially misplaced. The problem lies with the players and their advisors — be it family, high school coach or a talent broker — who fall under the spell of a slick-talking recruiter when they should be looking at the overall football program and the university.
In a perfect world, coaches who change jobs would not flip recruits from one school to another. While it’s not against the rules, it is on shaky moral ground. But it happens all the time. Franklin is just proving to be a better flipper than most. He is using the relationships he built while employed at Vanderbilt to fortify his first recruiting class at Penn State.
All’s fair in love and recruiting. The coach, whether it’s Franklin or somebody else, merely is doing what’s in his own best interest. The player should be smart enough to do the same.
Did anybody really expect Franklin to keep his hands off all of Vanderbilt’s commitments? That’s naïve. If we’ve learned nothing else about him over the last couple of weeks, it is that Franklin’s loyalty is to himself and his current job, not to his former employer.
Amidst all this, Franklin’s past words and actions have come back into play. When he was at Vanderbilt, he threatened to pull the scholarship offer of a player that had committed to the Commodores but had the audacity to schedule a visit to another school.
He said those that would go back on their words and even consider signing elsewhere were “not men of honor” and “not men of integrity.”
Look in the mirror. If the description fits, wear it.
Some recruiters are golden. Wherever they go, prime prospects follow.
In SEC circles, Rodney Garner is a certified pied piper when he comes to bringing in talented players regardless of his locale.
Over the past quarter century, he has been a productive recruiter while an assistant coach at Auburn, Tennessee, Georgia and Auburn again.
When he changed jobs, he often transported big-time recruits across state lines. And there was nothing illegal about it.
The challenge now is for Vanderbilt to hire Franklin’s replacement and stop the hemorrhaging. With no one in a position to counter Franklin’s lure or the offers by rival coaches, the Commodores’ recruiting class is being gutted.
Close to home, MBA lineman Jashon Robertson had been committed to Vanderbilt for more than a year but now has reversed field. He says he is headed to Tennessee and ended a tweet to that effect with “#VFL.”
For the hash tag- and initial-impaired, that stands for Vol For Life. Never mind that he had been a #CFL — Commodore For Life — as recently as a week earlier.
And Robertson is not alone. Others are in play. Ensworth lineman Michael Sawyers, a former Commodores commitment, has reopened the recruiting process.
As for Franklin, his change in venue requires a change in message. When he was at Vanderbilt, his recruiting approach was built around four key factors:
• Get a world-class education.
• Live in a great city.
• Make history instead of building on the history made by others.
• Play in the nation’s best conference.
Now that he’s at Penn State, Franklin’s message must be rewritten, to wit:
• Get a great education (Penn State ranks No. 37 nationally by U.S. News and World Report compared to Vanderbilt’s No. 17).
• Live in a cool college town in the middle of nowhere.
• Help return the program to its previous stature.
• Play in the nation’s fourth- or fifth-best conference.
Good luck with that, Coach Poach.
