James Franklin's business card, which he presumably handed to a 7th-grader.

Vanderbilt offered a 7th-grader:

And this should end all debate over whether Vanderbilt is, in fact, a true SEC school.

I saw these grade school kids playing tag was really good.  They should give him an offer too.

My grandson is almost 2, and he is pretty athletic . . .

You've reached the voicemail of Coach Franklin.  I'm sorry I can't take your call, I'm overseas recruiting linemen.

I have a 19-month-old granddaughter. In 2029 she will be 18. I think it's time OSU offered her a scholarship to play softball, volleyball or soccer. I'm joking, of course, so those out there don't take me seriously. Some of you fans may do that.

I'm just happy to be here

I knew a kid this good in 7th grade. He was an all rec league running back and linebacker who rushed for like 20 yards a game. He ended up breaking his leg first year of high school and only grew like an inch in the past 10 years. I bet he wished James Franklin was coaching then.

I doubt Franklin will be there in 2018.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

This is getting out of hand.

...and Michigan still sucks.

Franklin will be at a new school by then almost guaranteed. This is just silly. So much can happen between now and 2018.
