Vandy coach: No need to see video of Vols boasting



NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Apparently time does heal, even in college football. At least at Vanderbilt where coach James Franklin insists he's matured dramatically from a year ago.

That's when Franklin promised to keep video of Tennessee coach Derek Dooley boasting how the Vols always beat the Commodores as an open wound until they met again. Now the Commodores are bowl eligible for a second straight year for the first time in Vanderbilt history, while Dooley's job status at Tennessee is precarious at best.

Vanderbilt (6-4, 4-3 Southeastern Conference) hosts Tennessee (4-6, 0-6) on Saturday night looking to improve its bowl prospects with a fifth straight win.

Franklin said Monday the wound healed and their focus isn't where it needs to be if his Commodores need any other motivation.
