NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - James Franklin is trying to make sure his Vanderbilt Commodores stay as hungry to compete as they have been the past two seasons. Turns out, taking part in Vandy's best year since 1915 has only whet their appetites for more.
Still, the Commodores say nothing counts except the season opener Aug. 29 when they host Mississippi and that no game exists after that. They have bought into Franklin's single-minded approach very well since going 6-7 in the coach's first season with a 9-4 record in 2012 that was the Commodores' most wins ever in the Southeastern Conference.
Senior quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels says they've had a little bit of success but that isn't the success they want. He says they want to win 10 and 12 games every year.
