James Franklin has been named one of the most insane coaches in the country, and for good reason. He’ll tackle players during practice and jump off cliffs, but he’s always been a fan favorite in Nashville, while building the Commodores program.
He’s very likeable and his enthusiasm is contagious, even venturing into the stands to thank fans for attending scrimmages.
The Commodores are having a blackout against Ole Miss for the opener, and one Vandy alum via Twitter said he’d love to go, but his boss said he couldn’t. So, Franklin being who he is offered to call the guy’s boss.
Let’s just hope JD’s boss isn’t a Tennessee fan.
