Vandy All-Access Signing Day: Upside Down T’s on the schedule

Videos by OutKick

Vanderbilt football coach James Franklin hasn’t made any secret of his disdain for the way Tennessee celebrated its overtime victory over the Commodores. That video, which OKTC published for the first time, went viral and spawned something unique in the state — an actual football rivalry.

Franklin referred to the loss and video celebration as an open wound in a press conference.

Fast forward several months to signing day, Vanderbilt notches its best recruiting class in school history and the school releases a well done video promoting the rise of its football program.

What did an astute Twitter observer already spot?

The Tennessee logo is upside down on the schedule posted on the wall 46 seconds in to the video.


Intentional trash talk or not, it’s an entertaining video — astute viewers may also note that my 3HL co-host Brent Dougherty and I are also visible later in the video — we stopped by Vandy’s war room on our way to the Super Bowl and Tweeted about it. I mention this because inevitably someone on a message board with an IQ of 70 will claim this is a huge secret.

I don’t think there are very many of these war room videos out there and this is outstandingly well done — upside down T’s notwithstanding.

A few years back Florida had the T logos in their urinals.

So this is all in good fun.

But will every Tennessee fan think that?

I doubt it.

Will Franklin, who seems to delight in playing the heel for Vol fans, give a damn?

I doubt it again.

The college football season can’t get here fast enough.
