Vandy’s Franklin Says Thursday Night Opener Not A Concern

logoFor the second year in a row, Vanderbilt will kick off its football season with a Thursday night home game against an SEC foe.  According to Commodore coach James Franklin, last year’s midweek initiation should help his squad when Ole Miss visits the Music City tomorrow:

 

“South Carolina came in last year having played in a bunch of Thursday night games, and our guys hadn’t.  It’s no different than your second time in a bowl game.  The more times that you can go out there and have some recall and have some experience helps. 

Basically 75% of our roster has played on a Thursday night, ESPN, nationally televised game, and I think that will help us.  Plus, we’re at home.”

 

Playing on Thursday night isn’t bad for a school that’s still trying to become a household name on the recruiting trail, either.
