Auburn maybe should have kept him.

FSU has beaten the SEC champ at least 8 times, and we don’t even play in the SEC, lol:

FSU beat the 1987 SEC champs 34-6
FSU beat the 1988 SEC champs 13-7
FSU beat the 1989 SEC champs 22-14
FSU beat the 1993 SEC champs 33-21
FSU beat the 1994 SEC champs 23-17
FSU beat the 1996 SEC champs 24-21
FSU beat the 2000 SEC champs 30-7
FSU beat the 2013 SEC champs 34-31

Give it up for the SEC, a conference which almost beat FSU

Now I remember where I have heard that name before. If I’m not mistaken he lasted less than 1 season with Auburn and that offense was horrible, Florida Gator horrible.

No not really, Tubby’s old line assistants would not warm up to it or prepare the team where Franklin could succeed. Finally one day at practice Franklin freaked out and began coaching the offensive line, receivers, quarterbacks and everyone else to the consternation of the assistants which Tuberville would not let go and let Franklin get his own to begin with. The guy is a very good coach and now as OC at ULM they are in the top ten and that coach is being looked at by some bigger schools.

The offense was just too cutting edge for Auburn at the time and strangely they went to one about like it under Malzahn.
