Makes more sense than him wearing a Michigan shirt even though he is a Big 10 coach.
And it's not like wearing Vandy apparel at a Commodore football game. Plus Franklin has yet to tell a Vandy assistant: "if you’re going to take another job, especially a head coaching job, just make sure all the the boxes are checked — good administration, good program, somewhere you can win, somewhere you can see your family being happy,” said Montgomery, who interviewed several places before the NIU offer. “Don’t just take a job to say you’re a head coach. People used to tell me and I just didn’t listen. Sometimes the job you have is a better job.”

Little known private fact, when Novak made his decision, he and Phillips met with Franklin about the NU job.....that was before he had enough success at Vandy to move on to Penn State. Franklin politely said no to Phillips and Novak, so they went after their number two choice, Jerry Kill.

Local wrestling coaches have talked about the time Iowa State was honoring all of their Hall of Fame wrestlers prior to a dual meet with Iowa. The former Cyclone honorees -- including Dan Gable -- all came out wearing the long red robes with Iowa State on the back in gold letters. As soon as the ceremony finished, Gable dropped the robe to reveal a gold shirt with I-O-W-A across the chest in black block letters. All the cheering turned to massive booing as he ran to the Hawkeye huddle. True story.

Little hard to follow the private fact. Franklin wasn’t at Vandy yet when Novak retired. He was an assistant still. You said NU job, I assume you mean NIU since Kill took the job. Interesting if fact but confusing.
