Before ending his media session following Vanderbilt's thrilling 24-21 win over UConn last Saturday, Head Coach James Franklin delivered a message to fans still unsure about supporting the Commodores this season. Franklin encouraged fans to jump on board now and get behind the team because the players deserve it.

"One last thing I'd like to say," Franklin said. "I keep saying this but I think our program has shown enough signs that we're worth jumping on the bandwagon and supporting. Between the things we've done on the field, the things we've done in this community, finding a way to win a tough game tonight, as well as the things we're doing in recruiting; these kids deserve it.

"And our fans that we have here, I love them; they are unbelievably loyal. But we need those other people that are on the fence to jump on board and support us because these kids deserve it. Thank you."

The Commodores have the opportunity to move to 3-0 for the first time since 2008 when they host Ole Miss Saturday at 11:21 a.m. CT on SEC Network. To purchase tickets, click here or call (615) 322-4653.
