Nashville's local Vanderbilt University American football program has been home to head coach James Franklin for the past 3 years, but today, Franklin accepted an offer from his home state school and is now the head coach at Penn State. With Franklin as head coach over the three-year period he was here in Nashville, the Vanderbilt Commodore football program saw it's wins outnumber it's losses and consecutive bowl games for the past two years. This was the first time (two years in a row) for such a winning record for the local school, with the bowl games, and Franklin as head coach saw two years ending with a 9 to 4 record.

Vanderbilt fans said 'Let it not be so' and Vanderbilt alumni, even including such as professional golfer Brandt Snedeker, all reached out to James Franklin, asking him to stay. Snedecker even threw into the appeal an offer of 'free golfing lessions'.

It's been on the mind of many in Nashville, including the news media which gave out daily, and sometimes hourly news flashes about whether they thought James Franklin would go to Penn State or if he would stay in Nashville as Vanderbilt's head coach.
