James Franklin, a giant among Buttchuggers

Totally missed this news earlier in the week. Not sure how given the magnitude of it. I guess Lil Dools didn't get enough write in votes. (h/t AHD)
Franklin, 41, becomes the first Vanderbilt coach to receive the Tennessean of the Year Award.
Franklin led the Commodores to a 9-4 season capped by a 38-24 victory over N.C. State in the Music City Bowl in Nashville.
The Commodores matched a school record for single-season victories that dates to 1915. The team also ended with a seven-game win streak, which ranks as the longest active streak in the SEC.
Personally, I would've given the award to this guy though. For his courage in turning his back on rogue funnel.
