Tampering and “Former Relationships”


Damn I love James Franklin. He is better than Spurrier, Saban and Herban Meyer for making fun of.   He could very well make this off-season entertaining.  He is getting Vandy lots of media coverage.  I think that it may not be the kind of coverage that the nerds are gonna like.  Check this: Maryland football lifts transfer restrictions on Danny O’Brien, files complaint against Vanderbilt – The Washington Post.   Franklin claims to maintain relationships with former players.  I think that it is a good thing that he does this,  for the players sake.  So when a player decides to leave his school and starts looking around for a place to play ball, Franklin can swoop in and  pick the low hanging fruit.  Genius.

We have been informed by the Southeastern Conference that the Atlantic Coast Conference has filed a formal complaint involving Vanderbilt University football on behalf of one of its members. We are complying with SEC and Vanderbilt procedures and are conducting an investigation on the matter.

I am saddened that Maryland capitulated and lifted the restrictions on QB Danny O’Brien transferring to Vandy. Maryland coach Randy Edsall seems to be a two balled bitch. It really would have been glorious to watch Franklin bitch and moan.

Where is your helicopter now?

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.
