It's no secret that James Franklin is changing the culture at Vanderbilt, which has long been a cellar dweller in the SEC. But the coach is also making waves on Twitter, and in interesting ways.

But it doesn't end there. After nearly an entire day to consider his mistake, Franklin took to Twitter again on Wednesday to announce the Commodores' newest goal, and a fairly lofty one, at that.

Remember, Vanderbilt is ranked among the top institutions of higher learning in the country. Never change, James Franklin. Never change.
