Zac Stacy: Style includes the way you exit the field after being the record holder for career rushing yards at Vanderbilt University. Style also includes how you handle yourself. Stacy is lifted to the shoulders of his teammates for a ride off the field…the same teammates he then credits in the postgame interview with making his record possible. Stacy does both with impeccable style…and class. Congratulations.

I’m so in love with this photo.
Say What Now of the Day: Vanderbilt head football coach James Franklin said in an interview Wednesday that the appearance of coaches’ wives factors into the interview process:
I’ve been saying it for a long time, I will not hire an assistant coach until I’ve seen his wife. If she looks the part, and she’s a D-1 recruit, then you got a chance to get hired. That’s part of the deal.
There’s a very strong correlation between having the confidence, going up and talking to a women, and being quick on your feet and having some personality and confidence and being fun and articulate, than it is walking into a high school and recruiting a kid and selling him.
Franklin took to Twitter today after his comments made the rounds: “My foot doesn’t taste good, I hope I did not offend any1, I love & respect ALL,have a great day, enjoy the fam & don’t forget 2 #AnchorDown”
What the ACTUAL FUCK, Coach? I am so ashamed of him right now. And that “apology” is pathetic.

On What Happened on the Field Post-Game:
- “We just had a tough, emotional game and some things were said that I didn’t think we’re appropriate. I went to find Coach Richt and didn’t find him, so I found one of his assistant coaches and it didn’t go well. We’re not going to sit back and take it from anyone.”
If anyone tells you that football can’t break your heart, it’s because they’ve never met a Vandy fan.
I don’t even really watch NFL football since I prefer college football, but there is still something magical about the words “Cutler to Bennett.”
Just going to pretend that this is still relevant and South Carolina didn’t happen…
I’ve loved Jay Cutler ever since he started off my freshman year at Vanderbilt with a 4-0 season and went on to beat the Vols in Knoxville in one of the most exciting games I’ve ever been to. But when did he get so hot??

I say again, Commodores…don’t let me down.
Come on, Commodores. Don’t let me down.
