“Which is fight … have a chip on our shoulder.”

I see that James Franklin and his team are in full excuse mode two games into the season.  Generally, that’s not a good sign.

Here’s my favorite part:

“I think we were complacent,” Johnson said. “I don’t know if you could say we got entitled… We didn’t handle what little success we had last year very well.”

When you’re complacent after going 6-7, I think you’ve summed up your problem in a nutshell.

    You’re just trying to make us hate him more….even though no one thought it was possible. Or……are you trying to make us feel sorry for him? STOP MESSING WITH MY HEAD!

    Doesn’t James Franklin already have a whiny chip on the shoulder?

    Clearly there have not been enough chop blocks after the whistle or in-game trash talk from the HC. James Franklin has lost his edge.

    I hope those jokers get blown out every game and go O fer in the SEC. He has quickly shot up to the top of my Most Disliked SEC Coaches list.

    Oh how this makes me laugh. Especially having a degree from Vandy but being a Bulldog fan. People would always give me grief not pulling for the ‘Dores while I was in graduate school there. How can you be a fan of that program? They are so proud of athletic mediocrity.


  6. Mark Richt has lost control of James Franklin’s bravado.

    Maybe all the Vandy players are distracted by the hot coach’s wives …

    Anchor Down? I have no interest in Vandy until and unless we are able to deal successfully with FAU’s spectacular long snapper.

    I’m waiting for Franklin to pick a fight with Presbyterian College’s backup water boy.

    “(H)e has challenged his team to search for the mind-set that made the 2011 Liberty Bowl squad successful.”

    Back to being Vandy, helicopter notwithstanding.

    Y’all are a bunch of racists.

    Last year you played with a guy who would hit people from behind, in the knees, and look at the ref with that “who me” face; you would also be stupid enough to say something to Coach Grantham and ignite his fuse. Never seen a man go from smiling to seething so fast. What you need to do is play like you’ve been there before and quit whining.
