Franklin still puzzled (Auburn)

Speaking publicly for the first time Wednesday, Franklin did shed some light on one of the strangest weeks in recent Auburn football history, and he acknowledged that some players and assistant coaches probably “got their feelings hurt” by his aggressive coaching style.
