While James Franklin was at Vanderbilt, he backed out of games against Northwestern and Ohio State via letters sent through the United States Postal Service.
Derek Mason, the new frontman at Vanderbilt, doesn't seem to be that type of guy. He has a simple message for the man he replaced:
New @VandyFootball coach, Derek Mason's message to Penn State If James Franklin wants to play, we will play any time and place, anywhere.

The Postman won't be able to save Franklin from annual dates with Ohio State now that he's at Penn State, but a Penn State-Vanderbilt rivalry would be as hilarious as it would be delicious. Hopefully this happens sometime in the near future.
