Franklin: “We hope he plays”



“We hope he plays,” said Franklin, referring to Bray. “We look forward to the challenge. Our kids are excited about it. And to be honest, watching them on film, it’s not like they’ve changed dramatically with Worley or whoever’s playing. They’re running very, very similar schemes.

Bray responded to Franklin’s statement “Winners win first and then go play ball, while defeated teams talk in the media and then seek to win. Please, God, let me learn how to stop being a warrior. Sometimes I just need to be a quarterback. Touchdowns and beating Vandy, just like old times, are my priorities.”

Bray then elaborated on the upcoming game, “and to be honest, I would like to take a moment and remind all the Tennessee fans how far we’ve come! We were just a play or two away from being in the hunt for another conference title. Your support has not gone unnoticed by the team. We need you to stick with us. I’m confident that we’ll beat the jocks off the nerds this weekend.”

About Capers Bar

I am retired Army officer. I used to fly helicopters and airplanes while I was in the Army. Nowadays, I do other things that are not so cool and sexy. I decided to write about my journey or whatever you want to call it towards running a half-marathon this fall. I have been running since 1983, I have run the Duke City full and half marathons. I don't run that fast anymore, I did win a 10K when I was 21, those days are mercifully past me. The fastest mile I have turned is a 5:05 during one of those Army physical fitness test 2 mile runs. The point I am making is that I am old, slow, and experienced runner. I named the blog after my running buddy, Bandit, an Australian Blue Heeler. He is my 3rd K-9 running buddy, the previous two dogs were black labs. I hope to write about some of my discussions that I have with Bandit in the future. I once owned, but since sold and a satirical and irreverent sports blog that was moderately successful. I was published in the left-wing national sports media by Sports Illustrated and ESPN. I am "stuck" in Alabama working for a military contractor. I am working so fricking hard to get back to Southeast New Mexico or West Texas. Fingers and toes crossed.
