VANDERBILT MAY BE FOR REAL GUYS NO REALLY

James Franklin will occasionally bite chunks out of helmets as a motivational tactic. It is only disturbing the first time.

James Franklin has already changed the culture of Vanderbilt football by introducing competitive dodgeball to their training regimen, almost fighting on the field with Todd Grantham after Vandy's near-miss of a loss to the Bulldogs, and most importantly by making Vandy not suck. We await Nashville's 235 or so excitable fans spending the upcoming offseason discussing the possibility of Vandy becoming Stanford East, and then the accompanying nervous laughter from SEC fans. ("hahahahah omg could that happen no Pawwwwllll it cain't I mean it could where's the Old Granddad  I hate football Pawwlll sometimes I hate it so much war eagle." )

That new aggression in Nashville might have a few negative side effects. For instance, one of your players might be named as a person of interest in a robbery on campus, which is bad. The upside of that aggression? The Commodores sit at 5-5 with two games to go, including this weekend's matchup against Tennessee, a game where they are currently one point favorites over the Vols in Neyland Stadium. This may sound like yet another sign of an impending Mayan apocalypse, but don't worry: it doesn't sound like one, it is one.
