Vanderbilt’s head football coach met with the media in Nashville this morning to discuss his team’s upcoming trip to Lexington. Franklin emphasized how Kentucky’s 1-8 record is the result of a brutal schedule and said the Cats really know how to run the football.
Here are a few of the quotes:
“Kentucky is 1-8 right now, but five losses have come from top 17 ranked teams in the country, which is similar to us. They’ve played very, very good competition. They’ve played 14 true freshmen, which is as many as I’ve ever heard.
“Kentucky really knows how to run the football. They do nice things with schemes and angles. They’ve played three different quarterbacks, and we’re going to have to be prepared for all of them.
“This week is a great challenge: early morning game, going on the road. I expect to have many Vanderbilt fans traveling up the highway. What we see happen a lot in this league are teams that travel well. We want to have a bunch of black and gold in the blue stadium.”
