In James Franklin's 25 months as the head coach at Vanderbilt, he has gone about exploding every pre-conceived image of Commodores football.
There are the new uniforms, the inventive business card and, most importantly, the wins. In 2011, Franklin became the first Vanderbilt football coach to lead the 'Dores to a bowl game in his first year on the job. He followed that up by leading the team to back-to-back bowl games for the first time in school history, capped by a school-record nine wins, the program's longest winning streak since 1948 and the first year-end AP Top 25 appearance since 1948 as well.
Now Franklin and the Vanderbilt athletic department have once again enlisted the fine folks at Advent in giving a face-lift to the football facility.
Clearly still a work in progress; but take a look at a couple of the photos below. Knowing how the guys at Vandy work, pretty sure we'll see some video of the new look once complete.
