Fun Stat Nerd Tidbit: Vanderbilt

It's Vandy day!

I don't personally have anything against new Vandy head coach James Franklin. Really, I don't. I'm just not sure if he's enough of an unconventional thinker to succeed in Nashville.  He's known as a big-time recruiter, but I don't know how much that's going to help him at Vandy -- how many four- and five-star studs is he going to be able to attract?  He's going to have to learn to win with lesser talent, and ... we'll see.

Meanwhile, here's how the Maryland offense performed in the three years before he was named Maryland offensive coordinator and the three years he served in the role.  Draw your own conclusions.
