    The NCAA has a soft spot now for Penn State, they may even be Bowl eligible next season.

    I saw a young boy wearing a PSU hat the other day.

    I was weirded out.


    Like seeing a white woman wearing an OJ jersey.

    I wonder if Penn State people know just how wide spread that story got. One day I did a search and found it as a headline with major news organizations on every inhabited continent. That is how Penn State is known all over the world. The university where a bunch of kids were molested.

    Could you imagine. Going for an interview. You are somewhere like Brazil, Hong Kong, South Africa, etc. They look at your resume -- "Oh, Pennsylvania State University is where you went. The school where little kids got diddled."

    So going to Penn State is going to be a black mark on your resume? Briilliant.
    Hey, if you happened to go to Virginia Tech you are probably a mass murderer or something.

    Franklin is doing the right thing, IMO. He did some things at Vandy which hadn't been done in recent history and still couldn't fill the stadium. Vandy fans helped drive Franklin away, IMO.

    Also, he's beaten four teams with a winning record his entire time at Vandy, I believe. I think he knew he'd reached the ceiling and that there was no way the other programs in the SEC East were going to continue to slump as they have the last couple of seasons.

    This.

    During these past two nine-win seasons Vandy has beaten three teams that ended the season with a winning record. They've definitely taken advantage of the East being down.
