Tonight was round 2 of SportsTalk’s trip around the southeast previewing next year’s pigskin schedule for both Clemson and USC. Last week we started by previewing Clemson’s first opponent, the Auburn Tigers. Tonight we set our sights on the Gamecocks opener in Nashville against Vanderbilt. For the insight you need on the Commodores, we welcomed into the program, beat writer for the Nashville Tennessean, Jeff Lockridge.

Jeff took us inside the James Franklin era in Nashville, and provided some insight into the many changes taking place with the ‘dores since his arrival. The football culture is seemingly starting to evolve, facilities are improving, and Vandy is starting to recruit the type of kids that can compete in the Southeastern Conference.
