This is a troll right?

Only difference is that Dooley wasn't an up and comer. He was a proven loser.

This thread is gold, Franklin isn't coming here, he isn't worth what we would have to pay. People have inhaled Jeff Long smoke.

not a troll at all... I think VU is going to do what they can to keep franklin, and franklin has said he is committed to building something big at Vandy. It could all be posturing, but I sorta doubt it.

VU is not a stepping stone anymore... they've taken care of tim corbin when others came calling, and they'll do the same for Franklin, IMO.

Pete Roussel ?@coachingsearch
Sources tell me that Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin is NOT involved in the Arkansas coaching search.


Might have been Tennesse, Auburn or Kentucky that called but it was not Arkansas so guess again.

This has been the most fun I've had all season ( ). Nobody (except for the involved parties) knows anything, and it's easy to tell from other fanbases who they don't want you to have as a coach. This is just good entertainment!

re: Franklin to Arkansas (247 Strong Rumor)


he is a very good coach and would be a solid hire.

the problem isn't the hire. the problem is the hire in comparison to the fire. he'd get killed for firing a great coach, to hire a pretty good coach.. for no real reason other than the great coach lied to him.

that won't work. the fans like myself gave him the benefit of the doubt when he fired petrino, but not to hire franklin.

the coach hired a girl he was banging. it was a can of legal worms that no one in their right mind would open. You got screwed because Petrino is a scumbag. Don't blame your AD for that. And, if Franklin is the best hire he can make, be happy that you didn't end up with a coach with a 5-19 head coaching record and 10 straight losses at his previous gig (Gene Chizik).

You could do much worse than Franklin.

This is right up there with the stupidest crap I have ever read on this site.

You better hope this isn't the thinking of the powers that be at Arkansas. If it is you are doomed become what Ole Miss is.

Franklin would be a awesome hire for Arky and I for one hope he doesn't ended up at Arky or Auburn.

Sorry LSU and Tennessee

James Franklin will not be the coach of these Arkansas Razorbacks. Keep dreaming though.

I hope he isn't. Arkansas with him would be a huge thorn in LSU's side.

Franklin is nt leaving Vanderbilt. He loves the black AD who gave him a chance and they have just competed the indorr facility he always wanted. Vandy has a $42B endowment and will not let Franklin leave for want of more money. He got a big raise last year as did his asst coaches...forget about it...JF staying put...nt a fit in any way for Fayettevlle....

thank god, he is a great fit for Vanderbilt a poor one for our University. I hope we did not even offer him and it was another SEC school. Getting shot down by a sucky coach like Franklin would well suck.

Franklin, if he's not a tard, needs to GTFO as soon as humanly possible.

Eventually, Franklin is going to want to win his division, conference, and maybe even a NC. He's not staying at Vandy forever.

I'd like him as a recruiter, but I'm not sure I want him as a head coach.

with all tht said, i'm just telling you what is. you cant' fire a petrino who won 11 games to hire a coach from vandy. you can't do it and expect fans to like it. you woudlnt' like it and yout hink that because we are arkansas we shoudl shut up and like it and it's not gonna work.

when long fired petrino it was full well knowing that he would have to bring in a coach that the fan base could get behind. i like franklin, i think he will be a great coach. but he isn't the right hire.

NEWSFLASH:
Half of our fans are fricking morons. People who would have given Nutt a lifetime contract just because he was from f'ing LR and was a fine, Christian man. Hell - you can't even get some of our fans to be happy with the hypothetical situation in which we'd somehow end up with Gary Patterson, who is unquestionably one of the best coaches in college football.

Long will make the best hire he can. If he hires Franklin or someone similar, it will be because higher caliber coaches turned us down.

If he can't replace Petrino with a top 10 coach, that's not his fault. That's Petrino's fault for being a dumbass.
