VU’s James Franklin Goes Cliff-Jumping
Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin wants to make sure that he and his staff stay alert between now and the Commodores’ season opener against Ole Miss on August 29th. What better way to stay alert, Franklin thought, than by jumping into a lake off a 50-foot cliff?
Franklin released his inner daredevil at Chickamauga Lake in Chattanooga — one of the two sites for this year’s Vanderbilt football coaches retreat. He displays no hesitation in between screaming “Anchor! Down!” and plunging in to the water below.
We would not be surprised whatsoever if the fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants Franklin enjoyed this so much he went back for seconds.
