Franklin Wants An Easier Schedule At Vandy

This fall, Vanderbilt will have non-conference games against Northwestern, Presbyterian, UMass, and Wake Forest.  James Franklin wishes the Dores’ schedule were even easier:


“Most people in this league are playing one BCS game or one tough game and then three games they should win.  We’re playing two.  We should just be playing one of those.  I can make an argument, if you studied our schedule, that we have one of the toughest out-of-conference schedules, and we shouldn’t.”

Missouri is the only other SEC school scheduled to face two BCS-member teams this fall — Arizona State and Syracuse.  The Tigers will also play Southeastern Louisiana and Central Florida.

Fans want wins and bowls, but for $50+ a ticket they also want to see something more than a glorified sparring session with a tomato can.  Coaches would line up 12 such chumps if they could.

It's true, you know... Franklin's the only coach in the SEC who doesn't get to play Vandy! Reeks of unfairness, I say.(Go Dores).

The fact that he considers Northwestern, Presbyterian, UMas and Wake Forrest a tough non-conference schedule says more about Vandy than it does about the rest of the conference.

So Vandy outside of DIVISION has Auburn, Ole Miss, Northwestern, Wake Forest, Presbyterian, UMass

South Carolina has LSU, Arkansas, Clemson, East Carolina, Wofford, UAB.

 

Does Franklin REALLY want to switch?

Can't really blame him. Alabama, Florida, and LSU soften there non conference schedule as much as possible.
