CS- Breaking: Do not apply for a job on James Franklin’s staff if your wife is not a smoke show. While in Destin on Wednesday afternoon, Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin told Clay Travis on 104.5 The Zone that he evaluates the appearance of coaches’ wives during the interview process. Franklin, in a relaxed mood near the beach, explained, “I’ve been saying it for a long time, I will not hire an assistant until I see his wife. If she looks the part and she’s a D1 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 articulate and confident, than it is walking into a high school and recruiting a kid and selling him.” Heading into his second year as head coach, Franklin is pumped about the future of the Vanderbilt football program.


Move over Rockne.  Watch your ass Lombardi.   Coach James Franklin just dropped some straight up football knowledge right on your dome piece.  Seriously you may not expect to hear it put so bluntly but this may be the most true statement anyone has ever said in the history of Earth.   You got a smoke wife that means you got confidence.   You got confidence you can walk into any motherfucker’s home in the country, plant a big ass kiss on his momma’s cheek and talk him into joining your program.    Simple as that.   You date a fat ugly bitch you got low self esteem and are willing to settle for less than ideal.   You got the balls to bag a D1 smoke you got the balls to bag a D1 recruit.    Boom.  James Franklin just solved recruiting.
