I love my players. I appreciate their hard work and investment in our program. I feel a responsibility and loyalty to protect and stand up for them. Also, I feel it is important to educate them on all areas of life. While my intentions were genuine, I feel it was unfortunate that things escalated to a confrontation. These actions were not representative of what this institution stands for. However, I will use it as a learning experience for myself as well as my players so that we all become better men.

Todd Grantham comments publicly on Saturday night's incident. I wish some combination of Mike Slive, Greg McGarity, and Mark Richt hadn't put Coach Grantham in the position of having to make such a statement, but I'm glad he made sure to say he was sticking up for his players, which he was. For the record, the only statement made by James Franklin of which I am aware is this one: "Some things got a little bit out of hand. I know myself, and I don't want to speak for Coach Richt, I like the game to end a little bit differently. Walk off the field and move forward." That sounds really nice, except he's the one who came onto the field and started pointing at players and calling out to them; he's the one who made the postgame handshake confrontational. He doesn't know whether Coach Richt wishes the game had ended a bit differently? Was he paying attention to the classy way Coach Richt handled his berating during the postgame handshake? James Franklin is an arrogant, whiny, hypocritical jackleg, and, for what it's worth, the most lopsided final score in Georgia-Vanderbilt series history is 47-0. Let's shoot for 48-0 next year between the hedges. Go 'Dawgs!

Maryland is strongly considering asking head football coach Ralph Friedgen to retire and accept a buyout, according to multiple sources. Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson said Friday he would not address whether Friedgen was guaranteed to return in 2011. Anderson was addressing reporters on the departure of James Franklin, who took the head coaching job at Vanderbilt on Friday. ... Sources said that former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach would be the leading candidate to replace Friedgen if he is forced into retirement, with former Washington coach Tyrone Willingham and current New Mexico coach Mike Locksley also candidates for the job.

Vanderbilt made an aggressive push for Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn, but Malzahn has decided to stay at Auburn, a source told ESPN.com. With Malzahn out of the picture, Maryland offensive coordinator James Franklin is thought to be the front-runner for the Vanderbilt head job.

ESPN Reporting that Gus turned down Vandy. Is it now Franklin's job?

According to our source, Head Coach Ralph Friedgen is going to let AD Deborah Yow know if he is going to fire Offensive Coordinator this afternoon. On November 30, we were the first to report that if Head Coach Ralph Friedgen wants to come back as Head Coach he must fire Offensive Coordinator James Franklin. If not, Friedgen will be dismissed, according to our source. The school will than have to pay over a $4 million buyout. All of the seven assistant coaches are out on the road recruiting.

Football Coach Scoop Let's just say that these guys don't look like the most reputable source in the world. I get a feeling that no one knows what's going on, but maybe they have a source that knows something. I recognize that keeping Fridge and firing Frank is the most feasible economic decision, but it doesn't do anything to help this team now or in the long run. David will post a full story on it pretty soon.
