USC or Vandy.....
Vandy winning would dramatically help the SEC East race. Pinning the Cocks with an early loss would be a blow to their repeat bid.
However, a Vandy win will perpetuate the James Franklin genius routine and recruiting edge.
I think I am leaning towards hoping for a USCEAST beat down of the anchor down boys......
I hope Vandy loses all 12!
^ this ^
Sorry guys I can't pull for the old ball coach to win at anything. I have honestly tried before. I just can't do it. Maybe they will tie and play 150 overtimes then just give up.
Brother Jax and I share the same thoughts here. I love watching the Thurs night opener but I am very conflicted.....
Okay, I think I may have reacted with my heart rather than my brain. If Vandy can win 7 games, I think Franklin gets a job offer from a better football program (you know like SMU, Fresno State...Prairie View...or something) and he's out of there. Clay Travis will either be heartbroken or moving and Vanderbilt will continue to be Vanderbilt.
From what I hear from some of the Vandy boosters I know, they have Franklin locked in to a long term deal with a huge buyout clause.
I think Vol fans should pull for USCe because if Vandy wins, Franklin has a signature win much earlier than Dooley with a less talented roster. And, I just don't want the Dores to build that momentum early on in the season. If Franklin wins that game, the pressure on Dooley increases exponentially IMO.

Franklin has already proven he can recruit. If he proves he can coach that talent as well he will become a highly sought after coach IMO. If a HC spot opened up at any "elite" program his name will come up. I would be surprised if some of these programs can't afford his buyout. And as much as i would love to see it, I don't see him leaving Vandy for any program that's not a perennial contender in an elite conference.
I know this won't be a popular thought but I would be curious to see how many people start mentioning Franklin's name IF, I said IF, Dooley were fired.
Says The Wizard of Oz!
i'm not pulling for steve s. i'm just pulling for the comodes to get the hell beat out of them. i can't stand them never have never will. GO BIG ORANGE !!!
GO BIG ORANGE!!!
You want UGA, USCe and FL to lose every game they play as they are our main competition every year. The order might change each year but that would be my order this year. UT can out recruit Vandy every year and beat them too based on history. Even the recruiting rankings this year right now........Vandy would love to switch places with us now and on NSD.
I would love UGA and USCe to lose 2-3 other SEC games this year + have to play us. We would have an unbel chance to go to Atlanta a 2nd time.........plus steal a few recruits.

I will pull for S Carolina because I can't stand that prick James Franklin- before he came along I would pull for Vandy in every game but one. This has nothing to do with being scared or threatened. I just can't stand his cockiness and his behavior. He will never win big at Vandy and will be out the door the first chance he gets. In fact, he tried to leverage himself for the UNC position last year.
As far as helping us- if we take care of our business on the field we don't need help.
Go Vandy....I can't stand Spurrier and the chickens...
Hell, I even pull for Florida to beat them.
I hope Vandy loses their first six, fires Franklin and folds the program.

That's funny- even if the Taliban team was coached by Sandusky.
Now that's some good Vandy hatred there! Would your choice of towels be Big Orange with a white Power T?
"Old School"! A strong defense wins championships!
I'm still laughing over this one. Your the man my Vol friend.
I'm pulling for USC because I cannot stomach anymore talk about the team in Nashville and the floodgates will open for Franklin knobslobbery if they do win.
I removed the comment. I got to thinking that with members of the military on here it was not appropriate and I support our troops. But you get the idea of how much I dislike Vandy and it's preening coach.
Not a bad idea really, pretty sure they'd understood where you were coming from though. I laughed for a few minutes anyhow. I want Vandy to lose no question. Can you imagine them winning and by some cataclysm we lost to NC State?
Is there any way they could both lose?
Gotta pull for Vandy...
Cannot make myself yell Go Cocks...that just sounds wrong.
Though on a funny note: a friend of mine freshman year had her mom come up to Knoxville for the SC game and me being a total foreigner was floored when this lady older than my mom says: "HOW ABOUT THEM COCKS?"
You can imagine where my mind went...lol
And for those who know soccer:
I've spent some time thinking about this and I'd rather beat an undefeated USCe and pound a winless Candy! Just my
up until a couple of years ago i would've pulled for Vandy and never thought twice about it... back when they knew their place... but i'm really starting to hate those.....
