In his introduction at last night's basketball game, football head coach James Franklin simply asked Commodore Nation to rally together behind the program in the days ahead.
"We have a plan; we have a vision for what this program could be, but we can't do it alone," Franklin stated. "We need everybody's support. We need this community, we need this campus to come together and unite more than it ever has before."
Franklin got one of the loudest reactions when he singled out the student section, telling them that they could make the biggest impact by getting involved with the team and creating a true home field advantage.
Franklin closed his address by guaranteeing that brighter days are ahead. "Failure is not an option. We're going to succeed."
