James Franklin: Men of Honor

Milk Duds are yummy

No other words needed:
Vanderbilt coach elaborates on controversial comments … on recruit lost to UGA | AJC College Sports Recruiting
Vanderbilt coach James Franklin touched on a hot-button issue of recruiting when he recently said that players that de-committed from his program were “not men of honor” and “not men of integrity.”


QB Patton Robinette, who was committed to North Carolina, showed up for classes to enroll early last month, and abruptly walked out of student orientation with the Tar Heels on a Sunday to rush over to Vanderbilt.

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.
