Is it possible Vanderbilt fans will burn Nashville down if they do eventually qualify for a big-time bowl game? I'm beginning to think so after watching this video of the school's Music City Bowl announcement.
About two thousand fans showed up to cheer the announcement and listen to coach James Franklin, who had to postpone his speech due to a rousing ovation from the fans.
"All the naysayers out there, I really would love to tell them to go..." Franklin said before stopping himself. "I sit here and think about when we got here the feeling that surrounded the program, that's why I get so emotional because I know how far we have come."
