Vanderbilt All-Star Prospects

#8 trey wilson

Sr., CB, shreveport, La. A senior cornerback, Wilson was one of the Commodores' top defensive playmakers in 2011. Wilson set a Vanderbilt team record – and shared the SEC seasonal lead – by returning two interceptions for touchdowns. His total of 11 passes defended ranks seventh among returning SEC DBs.

#62 Ryan Seymour

R-Sr., OT, Kingsland, Ga.

Seymour is a two-year starter who possesses the combination of strength and agility to play effectively at tackle or guard. As a junior, he was a recipient of weekly honors as the SEC's top offensive lineman. In 2011, Seymour's performance was one of the keys to Vanderbilt having the conference's most improved offense.

#94 Richard Kent R-Sr., P, Marietta, Ga.

A Ray Guy Award candidate, Kent was one of the SEC's most effective punters last year. His 41.2-yard net average ranked fourth in the SEC and was the highest by a Commodore since 1996. Opposing returners posted just 87 total yards on Kent's 64 punts last season.

#87 Jordan Matthews

Jr., WR, Madison, Ala.

Matthews topped the SEC with a 19.0-yard per catch average as a sophomore. In his final six games, Matthews averaged 110.2 receiving yards.

VA N D E R B I LT F OO T B A L l

Vanderbilt All-Star Prospects

#84 rob lohr

R-Sr., DT, Phoenixville, Pa. A Nagurski Trophy candidate, Lohr has been an extremely productive defensive tackle for the last two years. Lohr's 11.5 tackles for loss in 2011, which included five quarterback sacks, is the most of any returning tackle in the SEC. Lohr has started 25 consecutive games.

#67 WESLEY JOHNSON

R-Jr., OT, Nashville, Tenn.

An Outland Trophy candidate, Johnson is one of the nation's most versatile offensive linemen. As a sophomore, he played effectively while earning multiple starts at center, guard and tackle. He has twice been recognized for weekly SEC offensive line honors. He has started all 25 games of his career.

anch o r d o w n

#2 Zac Stacy

Sr., RB, Centreville, Ala. A Doak Walker and Maxwell Award candidate, Stacy is coming off the finest season ever by a Vanderbilt back. As a junior, he set team records with 1,193 rushing yards and 14 rushing TDs. Stacy ranks second among all active SEC running backs in career rushing yards and is SEC's top returning rusher from 2011. The senior needs 631 rushing yards to become the team's all-time career leader.

Commodores in the pros

MYRON LEWIS

Entering his third year, Lewis should compete for a starting job with Bucs at cornerback.

JONATHAN GOFF

The New York Giants starting middle linebacker in 2009-11, Goff has signed as a free agent with Washington.

Commodores Living Dream; Enjoying PRO CAREERS Hayward, Richardson IMPRESS at Combine

SEAN RICHARDSON

CASEY HAYWARD

Two 2011 defensive standouts, Casey Hayward and Sean Richardson, had superb workouts at the 2012 NFL Combine. Hayward, eventually selected in the second round by Green Bay, posted the best 20-yard shuttle of any cornerback. Richardson, also now with the Packers, was even more impressive, turning in the top vertical jump and broad jump among all participating safeties.

Eleven former Vanderbilt standouts are currently signed with National Football League teams looking to expand or begin pro careers. The list of former Commodores includes six defensive players and five offensive standouts. The contingent also includes four • Earl Bennett, WR, Chicago players on one NFL roster: Earl Bennett, • Brandon Barden, TE, Tennessee Jay Cutler, D.J. • Jay Cutler, QB, Chicago Moore and Chris • Tim Fugger, LB, Indianapolis Williams are • Jonathan Goff, LB,Washington veterans on the • Casey Hayward, DB, Green Bay Chicago Bears.

Goff, a former starting linebacker with the reigning world champion New York Giants, inked with another team from the NFC East, the Washington Redskins. Welch, an offensive lineman with New England and St. Louis last year, is with Philadelphia. All-SEC defensive back Casey Hayward was drafted in the second round by the Green Bay Packers. Another 2011 All-SEC player, Tim Fugger, was later selected by Indianapolis. Two others, Brandon Barden and Sean Richardson, signed rookie contracts with Tennessee and Green Bay, respectively.

JAY CUTLER & CHRIS WILLIAMS

Cutler guided Bears to a 7-3 record before missing the final six regular season games to injury. He is nearing 20,000 passing yards for his NFL career. Williams could be starting as Cutler's protector at tackle or guard.

Four Former 'dores Likely to Start for Bears

D.J. MOORE

One of the NFL's top nickelbacks, Moore led Chicago with four interceptions last year.

For the second straight year, four former Commodore standouts – quarterback Jay Cutler, offensive lineman Chris Williams, wide receiver Earl Bennett and defensive back D.J. Moore – could start for the Chicago Bears. Cutler was off to his finest year in 2011 until an injury prematurely ended his season. The six-year veteran still threw for 2,319 yards and 13 touchdowns. Moore's four interceptions topped the Bears' secondary for the second consecutive season. Bennett averaged 15.9 yards on 24 receptions while limited to just nine appearances. Williams was playing at a Pro Bowl level last year as a first-year starter at guard. The versatile Williams is expected to play left tackle this season.

EARL BENNETT

The SEC's all-time leading receiver, Bennett has 124 career catches in Chicago.

Productive PRO DAY on CAMPUS

TIM FUGGER

One of eight seniors to participate in Pro Day on campus, Fugger's athleticism attracted Indianapolis scouts.

anch o r d o w n

Dwight Galt, known for producing some of the elite performers at the NFL Combine during his time at Maryland, lived up to that reputation in his first Pro Day as Vanderbilt's Director of Performance Enhancement. NFL scouts raved about impressive individual performances at Vanderbilt's first Pro Day activity under Galt's direction. The on-campus event is held annually just before the NFL Draft. Seven of the eight Commodore seniors that trained with Galt and participated in Pro Day made their way into NFL camps. Two of the eight, Casey Hayward and Tim Fugger, were selected in the draft. Two others, Sean Richardson and Brandon Barden, signed rookie free agent deals. T.J. Greenstone, Larry Smith and Kyle Fischer used the training to earn tryouts. Pro Day provides players a stage to showcase their skills in front of NFL teams through a series of agility tests and on-field drills. 9

vanderbilt University

Scenic urban Campus home to unique Education Located in the popular Midtown district of Nashville, Vanderbilt is regarded among the nation's finest universities. The private research university enrolled 6,817 undergraduate and 6,042 postgraduate students last year. Those students arrive on campus from all 50 states and nearly 100 countries. The university was founded 139 years ago when shipping and rail magnate "Commodore" Cornelius Vanderbilt provided an initial $1 million endowment. Vanderbilt is one of 10 charter members of the Southeastern Conference. It is the only private school among the SEC's expanded 14-member universities. Vanderbilt is ranked among the top universities in America. In its popular annual "Best Colleges" edition, U.S. News & World Report most recently ranked Vanderbilt No. 17 among all national universities. The magazine also placed Vanderbilt No. 2 among schools located in the Southeast. The campus is located 1.5 miles southwest of downtown Nashville on 330 pristine acres that was designated a national arboretum in 1988. Two focal areas of campus closed to vehicles – the Peabody campus and the collection of academic buildings surrounding Kirkland Hall that form the original campus – are frequently listed among the most beautiful college environments in the South. Though located within walking distance of downtown activities, the quality of Vanderbilt life is reflected in much smaller, less public ways – running into friends while walking on campus, researching papers or grabbing a late-night snack with friends, choosing between a public policy lecture or athletic event, or having dinner at a professor’s home. Most Vanderbilt undergraduates live on campus during their time at the university. Thirty-four residential halls dot the campus, ranging from the four towers off West End Avenue to The Ingram Commons, a state-of-the-art complex for Vanderbilt's first-year students that has attracted national acclaim for its design and unique living experience. Vanderbilt offers numerous degrees in four undergraduate colleges: the College of Arts and Science, Peabody College, School of Engineering and Blair School of Music.

City OFFERS array of activities Vanderbilt's hometown of Nashville is a vibrant city known proudly as "Music City, U.S.A." Located little more than a mile from an attractive and welcoming downtown district, Vanderbilt students, faculty, staff and visitors frequently cite Nashville as one of the perks of the university. From its scenic location along the Cumberland River, Nashville is a metropolitan place that proudly exudes all of the charm and hospitality one expects from a grand Southern capital city. Nashville is getting plenty of attention. In its July 2012 edition, GQ Magazine devoted eight pages in praise of Nashville, calling it "Nowville...the most electric spot in the South." Boasting a metro population of 1.5 million, Nashville enjoys a mild and pleasant climate with

only a few days of the year having either very hot or very cold conditions. The majority of rain is confined to the spring months. The fall, with changing leaves at its peak and college football in the air, is a celebrated time throughout Tennessee. Nashville's vibrancy stems from a diverse and youthful population, unique neighborhoods, abundance of parks, and widespread entertainment options. The down-town blends state and municipal complexes with the popular Lower BroadwaySecond Avenue entertainment district that draws tens of thousands of weekend visitors to an array of lively nightclubs, eateries and tourist attractions such as the Ryman Auditorium, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the Schermerhorn Symphony Center and Frist Center for the Visual Arts.

NaSHVILLE: HOME TO GREAT SPORTS

The Predators are becoming one of the NHL's most successful franchises.

Nashville ranks among the nation's best destinations for sports fans. In its 2011 "America's Best Sports Cities" edition, The Sporting News placed Nashville 16th on its list. Of course, Vanderbilt athletic events are high on the Music City sports calendar. In addition to the Commodores, Nashville is home to two successful pro teams: the NFL's Titans and the NHL's Predators. Every Titans game features capacity crowds. Bridgestone Arena has been named by various sources as one of American's top multi-event venues. The 18,000-seat arena is home to the Predators and will host the SEC basketball tourney, opening rounds of the men's NCAA tourney and the NCAA women's basketball Final Four in the near future.

The Southeastern Conference

A League WITHOUT PEER • For the first time in 75 years of the Associated Press poll, the SEC has also claimed six consecutive Press national titles. • Since 2006, the SEC is 9-3 in BCS bowl games. Overall, the league is 36-19 (.655) in bowl games since 2006. This includes two appearances by the Commodores.

Vanderbilt is a charter member of the Southeastern Conference, which expanded to 14 teams this year with the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M. During the last six years, SEC football has experienced success that is unparalleled in college football history.

• SEC teams were 48-8 (.857) in non-conference play last year, with Vanderbilt enjoying a 4-0 mark. • In 2011, 283 former SEC players were on NFL rosters. That's more than any other conference. Ten of those players were former Vanderbilt standouts.

• Remarkably, SEC teams have captured the last six BCS national championships. How deep is the SEC quality? Those six straight national titles have been captured by four different teams.

• Since 2006, the SEC has averaged 39.5 players drafted in the NFL, more than any other league. Ten were picked in the 1st round last year. Two Commodores, Jay Cutler and Chris Williams, have been selected in the 1st round since the 2006 draft.

• In the BCS era that dates to 1998, the SEC owns eight titles, six more than any other conference. Even more impressively, SEC teams are an undefeated 8-0 in title games.

•Three of the last five Heisman Trophy winners have come from SEC schools. In recent years, top SEC players have walked away with virtually every other significant postseason award.

THE Commodores on TV Vanderbilt is part of the Southeastern Conference's unmatched national TV package. On Aug. 30, the Commodores will kick off ESPN's 2012 coverage of college football by hosting South Carolina. Every Commodore game is available on television due to national contracts between the SEC and CBS Sports and ESPN, and regional packages with Comcast Sports Southeast and FOX. Annually, SEC encounters on CBS, ESPN and ESPN2 are among the most watched college games of the year. Vanderbilt games also bring outstanding audiences. In 2011, the Vanderbilt-Alabama encounter was ESPNU's highest rated college football game of the year for the primetime slot. Vanderbilt's conference victories over Ole Miss and Kentucky were among four Commodore games aired on the SEC Network.

VANDERBILT Outlook

Rising expectations

The Vanderbilt Commodores return 16 starters and 43 letterwinners for the 2012 season. The returnees include nine starters and 20 letterwinners on offense, seven starters and 20 letterwinners on defense, and the team's top three specialists. Vanderbilt looks to improve off a 2011 campaign that featured first-year Head Coach James Franklin guiding the Commodores to their fifth postseason bowl appearance in team history. The Commodores showed across-the-board progress last year, with both offensive and defensive units ranking as the most improved in the Southeastern Conference. For the first time in 28 years, the Commodores produced more points and total offense than their opponents. The Commodore offense, which topped the SEC last year in explosive plays, features a backfield of All-SEC running back Zac Stacy and fifth-year senior quarterback Jordan Rodgers and looks to have 2009 SEC Freshman of the Year Warren Norman available at running back. Nine of the team's top receivers from 2011 return, including productive wideouts Chris Boyd and Jordan Matthews. The bulk of Vanderbilt's offensive line also returns, including starters Wesley Johnson, Ryan Seymour, Josh Jelesky and Andrew Bridges. The Commodores return eight of its top defensive line performers from last year, including starting tackles Rob Lohr and Colt Nichter, and ends Walker May and Johnell Thomas. Two line-

backers with starting experience in 2011 – Archibald Barnes and Chase Garnham – headline the linebacking corps. Cornerback Trey Wilson and safeties Kenny Ladler and Javon Marshall are returning starters in a deep Commodore secondary.

OFFENSIVE BACKFIELD

Starters back: 2 Letterwinners: 6

Blessed with one of the Southeastern Conference's top running backs and a returning starter at quarterback, the Commodore backfield appears to be a team strength as the 2012 season nears. While senior tailback Zac Stacy and senior quarterback Jordan Rodgers are expected to headline the Commodore offense, several others possess the skill to produce breakout seasons. The coaches expect Rodgers to build off an impressive lateseason performance. Inserted midway through the season, Rodgers ranked among the SEC regular season leaders in passing yards and total offense.

Carta-Samuels' credentials as a two-year starter at Wyoming of the Mountain West Conference rival those of Rodgers. He threw for 3,655 yards and 19 touchdowns at Wyoming, and guided the Cowboys to a bowl victory in 2009. Freshman Patton Robinette also impressed in spring drills. One of the top aims for Vanderbilt's quarterback will be to get the ball in Stacy's hands. Stacy earned All-SEC honors after setting team records with 1,193 rushing yards and 14 rushing touchdowns. Stacy also proved that he can handle the load of a No. 1 running back in the SEC, averaging 121 yards over the final seven games. One of the most pleasant developments from Spring Practice was the return of Stacy's former running mate, junior Warren Norman. The coaches hope the Norman that rushed for 1,242 yards in 2009-10 returns this fall. Powerfully built sophomore Jerron Seymour was a potent No. 2 back to Stacy in 2011. Versatile athlete Wesley Tate also impressed the staff during spring drills, bringing greater size and power to the run game. Tate also has been productive as a receiving threat. Brian Kimbrow is a highly regarded freshman who possesses tremendous quickness and explosive moves. The top fullbacks are juniors Fitz Lassing and Marc Panu.

Receiving Corps Starters back: 3 Letterwinners: 8 The Commodores return one of the Southeastern Conference's top wide receiver tandems and a crop of newcomers hoping to bring big-play abilities to the Vanderbilt offense. First-year coach Josh Gattis returns virtually the entire wide receiving corps intact from the AutoZone Liberty Bowl squad. Tight ends mentor Charles Bankins also has multiple letterwinners back, though he must replace graduated starter Brandon Barden. The Commodores return their four most productive wide receivers from a year ago: Jordan Matthews, Chris Boyd, Jonathan Krause and Wesley Tate.

Redshirt freshmen Josh Grady and Jacquese Kirk were standouts during spring drills and could easily play their way into substantial roles this fall.

He will compete with a pair of talented youngsters, sophomore Dillon van der Wal and redshirt freshman Steven Scheu. One of the team's most impressive performers during Spring Practice was redshirt freshman Kris Kentera, who made numerous plays after moving from quarterback to H-back. Kentera and junior Fitz Lassing are the team's top H-backs.

OFFENSIVE LINE Starters back: 4 Letterwinners: 7 For the second straight year, the Commodores return an offensive line largely intact from the previous season. The returnees also include some of the top offensive linemen in recent team history. In 2011, the line helped Vanderbilt produce the Southeastern Conference's most improved offense. The Commodores scored 38 touchdowns in 2011, the most since 1948. The team's 24 rushing touchdowns nearly matched the combined total from the 2009-10 seasons. The squad averaged nearly 50 yards more per game, allowing Vanderbilt to Josh Jelesky......................

Seymour gives the Commodores a physical presence at left guard and has the abilities to play either tackle role. Johnson was one of the SEC's top linemen in 2011, playing effectively while starting at all three line positions. Josh Jelesky and Andrew Bridges gave the Commodores a big lift last year as first-year starters at right guard and right tackle, respectively. Two improving sophomores, Spencer Pulley and Joe Townsend, pushed each other in Spring Ball at center and appear destined to compete for that starting role in preseason camp. Several young prospects, including Chase White, Jake Bernstein, James Lewis and Grant Ramsay, are expected to push for key playing roles. Last winter, the Commodores did a superb job of creating depth by inking six offensive line prospects. Keen recruiting experts believe the signing class of Adam Butler, Blake Fromang, Barrett Gouger, Will Holden, Andrew Jelks and Kevin McCoy ranks as the finest collection of offensive line prospects in team history.

This fifth-year senior trio is expected to start this season on the Vanderbilt defensive front.

DEFENSIVE LINE Starters back: 3 Letterwinners: 9 The Vanderbilt defensive line looks to continue the same aggressive and opportunistic play that characterized its performance in 2011. Nine of 12 letterwinners return from a corps that helped Vanderbilt witness a tremendous, one-year turnaround in its defensive play. The unit produced across-the-board improvements last season, soaring from 95th to 18th in total defense, 99th to 25th in rush defense, 92nd to 29th in scoring defense, and 89th to sixth in total interceptions. Second-year coach Sean Spencer has plenty of key contributors back from a year ago. The Commodores return their entire five-player rotation at tackle and four of their most productive ends from the 2011 squad. Returning starters Rob Lohr and Colt Nichter are back for their final seasons at tackle. With nine sacks and 20.5 tackles for loss to his credit, Lohr has a chance to conclude his career as the most accomplished Vanderbilt defensive tackle since James Manley earned All-SEC honors in the mid-1990s. Lohr and Nichter face plenty of competition trying to secure their starting roles. Jared Morse, Vince Taylor and Barron Dixon are experienced tackles who will contend for starting assignments. Conor Hart is another untested prospect. Thad McHaney, a big defensive end, can also contribute inside at tackle. Walker May, elected as a co-captain leaving a superb effort in Spring

They are tackle Ladarius Banks and three defensive end prospects: Torey Agee, Caleb Azubike and Stephen Weatherly.

lineBacker CORPS Starters back: 2 Letterwinners: 3 Three veterans with starting experience from a year ago are back to headline Vanderbilt's linebacking corps. Redshirt senior Archibald Barnes and junior Chase Garnham are the top returnees for second-year coach Brent Pry. Barnes and Garnham will be asked to produce on the field and fill a leadership void left by the departure of three-time all-conference recipient Chris Marve, who graduated as the team's No. 8 all-time tackler and as one of the finest leaders in program history.

Darreon Herring, a mature freshman who enrolled last January, impressed with his athleticism and natural ability to find the football during spring drills. Another promising linebacker exiting Spring Practice was redshirt freshman Kellen Williams at the inside role. Harding Harper, Jake Sealand and Ja'karri Thomas are three other signees that bring plenty of promise to the linebacking corps: Sealand has tremendous leadership skills and appears to fit the inside linebacker role; Harper and Thomas are superb athletes who could make strong cases for playing time during camp. The staff also used spring drills to introduce the Star position as a future linebacker-safety hybrid role. Junior Karl Butler was a spring standout playing the role. Redshirt freshman Larry Franklin also enjoyed snaps at the position.

TREY WILSON, ERIC SAMUELS, EDDIE FOSTER

Wilson should be an anchor in the Vanderbilt secondary as a returning starter at cornerback, while Samuels and Foster look to earn key roles as defensive backs in their final Commodore season.

defensive Backs Starters back: 2 Letterwinners: 8 Vanderbilt returns a bevy of talented cornerbacks and safeties from a secondary that ranked among the NCAA leaders in interceptions last year. Two starters are back in the defensive secondary: senior cornerback Trey Wilson and junior safety Javon Marshall at safety. Junior Kenny Ladler also returns with starts at safety. The Commodores must replace two productive starters in All-America cornerback Casey Hayward and three-year starting safety Sean Richardson. Hayward finished his career with a share of the team all-time interceptions record and was drafted by Green Bay in the second round. Richardson, among Vanderbilt's all-time Top 25 tacklers, also inked a free agent deal with Green Bay. As a first-year starter in 2011, Wilson posted three interceptions and tied a team record by returning two for scores. Junior Andre Hal earned Hayward's vacant starting role with an an impressive spring performance. Senior Eddie Foster and junior Steven Clarke, will compete for key roles in multiple defensive back sets. Redshirt freshman Derek King and a trio of promising signees – Brandon Banks, Paris Head and Torren McGlaster – will get a close look during camp. At safety, Marshall brings a reputation for punishing tackles at safety. He also possesses natural leadership skills. Ladler has been a productive player

Two other returning safeties with plenty of talent, senior Eric Samuels and junior Karl Butler, will compete for starting roles. Samuels is one of the Commodores' top athletes, owning the skill to play safety or nickel in multiple receiver formations. Butler is a physical, hard-hitter, and appears tailored to the unit's "Star" hybrid position that was introduced during spring drills. The coaches also are eager to see the development of two redshirt freshman safeties, Andrew Williamson and Jahmel McIntosh.

Andre Hal, named as a second team All-SEC pick by Yahoo Sports last year, is back as a kickoff returner. Hal averaged 23.8 yards and returned one kick for a touchdown in 2011. The 'Dores also expect to have Warren Norman available for kick returns. In 2009, Norman set a Vanderbilt record by returning three kicks for touchdowns. Norman's 25.9-yard career average also ranks as a team record. Eric Samuels and Steven Clarke also have solid experience returning kicks. Jonathan Krause and John Cole are the Commodores' most experienced punt returners.

Head Coach James Franklin

In one season, Vanderbilt Head Coach James Franklin became the only first-year coach in school history to guide the Commodores to a bowl game, surpassed the total wins achieved by the program in each of its previous two seasons and reeled in the best recruiting class in school history. Through his successes, Franklin has sent a jolt of positive energy throughout Vanderbilt’s football program that has been buoyed by an infectious personality and unmatched passion for the Commodores. Hired as the first African-American head coach in Vanderbilt gridiron history on Dec. 17, 2010, Franklin guided the Commodores to an appearance in the 53rd AutoZone Liberty Bowl on New Year's Eve and had the Commodores competing at a high level in the best college football conference in the nation. Franklin's 2011 Commodores did not just compete; they did so at levels rarely witnessed at the school. The team totally reversed two consecutive seasons of disappointment by earning the fifth postseason appearance in school history. Vanderbilt’s drastic improvements can also be measured by statistics. Under Franklin, the Commodores featured the Southeastern Conference's most improved offense and defense. Offensively, the unit scored more points than any Vanderbilt team in the previous 50 years. The defense soared from 95th nationally in total defense to 18th in Franklin's first year. Just as Franklin has made an immediate impact on the football field, he has done the same in the Vanderbilt and Nashville community. Whether it

is speaking before civic groups or helping move students into their dorms, Franklin has made a strong impact in the community by embracing each opportunity with the same passion he does a football game. At the same time, Franklin's openness has provided other members of the community with unforgettable behind-the-scenes experiences, such as an inspiring local 11-year-old boy joining Franklin to lead the team on the field for homecoming. Franklin has also given the public never-before-seen access by allowing cameras and journalists inside the program. Such media outlets as Sports Illustrated, CNN/SI.com, SBNation.com and the Washington Post have chronicled the Commodores with in-depth stories in Franklin's first year. Franklin’s first season began with a convincing 45-14 season-opening victory. In the second game against defending Big East champion UCONN, he set the tone for the season. Seeing a lack of energy with his team trailing 21-14 in the fourth quarter, an emotional Franklin rallied his squad, telling all that this Vanderbilt football team was different from the others. Within minutes, cornerback Casey Hayward returned an interception 50 yards for a touchdown, and Carey Spear capped the comeback with a 31-yard field goal. One week later, the Commodores were off to an impressive 3-0 start after a resounding 30-7 win over Ole Miss. Two games later, the Commodores returned home to play eventual SEC East champion Georgia in what turned out to be one of the most intense games of the season. But it was Franklin's reaction after the bitter 33-28

Head Coach James Franklin FRANKLIN'S FIRST-YEAR ACCOMPLISHMENTS ON THE FIELD IN 2011

• First coach in Vanderbilt gridiron history to guide Commodores to bowl appearance in initial year as head coach. • Guided Commodores to their fifth bowl appearance in team history. • Vanderbilt outscored its opponents over the course of the season (323-255) for the first time since 1982. The +73-point differential is the highest since the 1974 Commodore season. • Vanderbilt's 26.7 points per game average is the second highest by a Commodore offense in the last six decades. • Tripled team's win total from each of the last two years. • In going 6-6 during regular season, shared biggest one-year improvement (+4 wins) in SEC with Georgia. • Scored 21 points or more in 10 games, setting new team mark. • 30-point margin of victory over Kentucky was the largest by Commodores over an SEC opponent since 1969. • Earned widespread national media attention, with lengthy features in Sports Illustrated, Washington Post and SI.com among others.

midseason defeat to the Bulldogs drew more admiration from Commodore fans. "We're going to compete with class," Franklin said at the postgame press conference. "But we are not going to sit back and take stuff from anybody. Those days are long gone and never coming back. Ever!" The Commodores seemed to take momentum from the Georgia disappointment. Vanderbilt outscored its final six opponents by a 193-117 margin. Late-season victories included a 38-8 win over Kentucky, which marked the the program's widest margin over an SEC team in 40 years, and a decisive 41-7 road triumph over Wake Forest to achieve bowl eligibility. Vanderbilt’s six wins were two more than the combined total of the 2009 and 2010 Commodore teams. The team went 4-0 in non-SEC games and won five of its games at home, the most victories at Vanderbilt Stadium since the mid-1990s. The Commodores also outscored their opponents by 73 points, a remarkable 244-point improvement over the previous year. The 73-point differential is the program's largest since 1974. Several Vanderbilt players enjoyed tremendous seasons during Franklin's first year on campus. Junior running back Zac Stacy put together the finest rushing season in Commodore history, setting a team single-season record of 1,193 yards. He also rushed for 14 touchdowns, the highest total in modern-day team history. Junior Jordan Rodgers passed for 1,523 yards – the most ever by a first-year Vanderbilt quarterback – and tossed nine touchdowns. Sophomore Jordan Mathews blossomed as Rodgers' top target, averaging 111 receiving yards during the final six regular season games. Another young receiver, Chris Boyd, topped all SEC freshmen with seven touchdown catches. Wesley Johnson, Ryan Seymour and Kyle Fischer earned weekly honors from the SEC. On defense, Hayward matched the all-time Vanderbilt record with 15 interceptions, became just the third Commodore All-American in the last decade, and was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the second round of the NFL Draft. Hayward, senior linebacker Chris Marve and senior defensive end Tim Fugger also earned All-SEC recognition. As a result of his success, Vanderbilt's administration committed to Franklin on a long-term basis following the regular season. Vanderbilt extended his contract with a pay raise and promised a series of major

Head Coach James Franklin upgrades, including the addition of new team and position meeting rooms, new videoboard, lights and synthetic turf in the stadium, and the construction of an indoor multi-purpose facility on campus in 2013. Numerous media outlets focusing on college football have taken notice. In a recent article, the Sporting News named Franklin as one of the nation's Top 25 head coaches. An array of national publications have journeyed to Nashville to chronicle Franklin's impact on the Commodore program. Prior to accepting the Vanderbilt position, Franklin spent the last five seasons coordinating highly productive offensive units at top Division I programs. Most recently, Franklin served as offensive coordinator and assistant head coach at the University of Maryland. In 2010, Maryland enjoyed an impressive one-year turnaround with a 9-4 campaign. Franklin’s explosive offense averaged 32.2 points and topped 50 points in three games. Maryland redshirt freshman quarterback Danny O’Brien finished the season as one of the nation’s most efficient signal callers, throwing for 2,438 yards, 22 touchdowns, and only eight interceptions while earning ACC Rookie of the Year honors. First team All-ACC receiver Torrey Smith, an eventual second round NFL pick, flourished under Franklin’s system, finishing 2010 with 67 receptions, 1,055 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. Franklin went to Maryland after spending the 2006-07 seasons as offensive coordinator at Kansas State. He helped the Wildcats earn their first winning season in four years and a berth in the inaugural Texas Bowl. In 2006, Franklin focused on mentoring talented true freshman quarterback Josh Freeman. In 2007, Franklin’s offense produced a 3,000-yard passer (Freeman), 1,500-yard receiver (All-America wide receiver Jordy Nelson), and 1,000-yard rusher for the first time in school history. Today, Freeman and Nelson have found great success in the NFL. Freeman is the starting quarterback for Tampa Bay after being selected in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft. Nelson grabbed a touchdown pass in the Green Bay Packers’ 2011 victory in Super Bowl XLV. Franklin spent the 2005 season coaching wide receivers for the Green Bay Packers under Mike Sherman. During that season, wide receiver Donald Driver set new career-high marks with 86 receptions for 1,221 yards.

THE FRANKLIN FAMLY

James and Fumi Franklin with their young daughters, Shola and Addy. After his brief but successful NFL tenure, Franklin returned to college coaching for the opportunity to devise offensive schemes and gain in-game play calling experience at the coordinator level. Franklin’s opportunity with the most-storied team in the NFL came on the heels of a five-year role coaching wide receivers at Maryland. During his tenure, the Terps earned three postseason berths including an appearance in the 2002 BCS FedEx Orange Bowl. Franklin’s role expanded to recruiting coordinator in 2003. Franklin delivered back-to back recruiting classes ranked in the Top-25 by Rivals.com. Early in his career, Franklin committed himself to being a student of

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT FRANKLIN "What Franklin has accomplished in such a short time—on the field and in recruiting—is groundbreaking."

Steve Greenberg, Matt Hayes

The Sporting News

"In his first year at Vanderbilt, James Franklin brought high energy, commitment and just the right dose of attitude. The Commodores faced a number of teams that had more athletes, but no one played harder week in and week out."

Tony Barnhart CBS Sports

"No doubt at all, this is not the Vanderbilt football program of old." Clay Travis OutkicktheCoverage.com "The energy level is incredible. I just couldn’t be more floored by the job Coach Franklin’s done."

Corey Chavous

"James Franklin hasn't backed down from anything since taking over the Vanderbilt head coaching job some 12 months ago."

Bruce Feldman

CBSSports.com

"Coach has meant so much to me, both on and off the field. I was very raw, and needed development in really every area. Coach taught me proper footwork, how to better understand pass routes and schemes, just how to play the position. Truly, to this day, my fundamental foundation as a quarterback came from the time with him."

Josh Freeman

quarterback, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

"James Franklin has an edge about him that the Vanderbilt fans love, and it’s the way his team has played this season."

"Coach Franklin is a great motivator and loves what he’s doing. To be an ex-Commodore, I’m just very proud to know that this man is leading our program. I definitely knew one thing. When he became head coach here, there wasn’t going to be any inferiority complex about coaching in the SEC and at Vanderbilt.”

David Culley

wide receivers coach, Philadelphia Eagles

"Coach Franklin has a lot of energy and passion for the game, and obviously knew what he was doing. He cared about his players and was a great family guy. Coach was intense, but yet had fun and like I said, he had his passion for the game, his love for the game and a love for his players, and he cares about his players like family."

JOHN DONOVAN OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR; RUNNING BACKS

The first Commodore offense coordinated by John Donovan was a big hit on the Vanderbilt campus. Donovan, who helped develop explosive offenses at the University of Maryland with James Franklin, coordinated the most productive Vanderbilt unit in decades during the 2011 season. Donovan's offense was the Southeastern Conference's most improved last year. The offense averaged 26.7 points, nearly 10 more than the previous year, and produced more rushing and passing yards than in 2010.

Defensive coordinator Bob Shoop returns for his second year with the Commodores after guiding one of the NCAA's most impressive defensive turnarounds in 2011. The Vanderbilt coordinator and safeties coach directed the 2011 unit to staggering levels of improvement. Under Shoop's guidance, the Commodore defense ranked ninth in the NCAA in pass defense efficiency and 18th in total defense. It also ranked among the nation's top units in total interceptions, points allowed and rush defense. A 24-year veteran in the coaching ranks, Shoop joined James Franklin in Nashville following a superb four-year tenure as defensive coordinator at William & Mary where the one-time Columbia head coach guided a remarkable transformation of the Tribe defense. Shoop's 2011 unit at Vanderbilt was paced by All-America defensive back Casey Hayward, who tied the team career record Postseason APPEARANCES: 10 with 15 interceptions, and senior All-Americans: 4 linebacker Chris Marve, who NFL Draftees: 7 earned All-SEC honors for the ALL-CONFERENCE PLAYERS: 28 third straight year and concluded NOTES: Under Shoop's guidance, his career among the team's Top Ten career tacklers. the 2011 Commodore defense was What made Shoop's coaching the SEC's most improved unit, achievements in Nashville even ranking 18th in the NCAA in both more impressive was how quickly total defense and pass defense. he improved the Commodore defense. The one-year difference was staggering: in 2010, the Commodores ranked 10th or worse among SEC teams in virtually every defensive statistic; in 2011, Vanderbilt ranked seventh or better in 12 of 13 top defensive statistical categories. The 2011 Commodore defense allowed 9.6 fewer points and 96.4 less yards than a year earlier. Shoop's unit also nabbed 19 interceptions, 10 more than in 2010, helping the Commodores to a plus-5 improvement in turnover margin. Shoop's 2011 defense limited three BCS-level teams – Ole Miss, Kentucky and Wake Forest – to eight points or less. The unit also held five opponents to under 100 rushing yards. At William & Mary, Shoop's defenses ranked among the top defenses in NCAA FCS football. In 2009, W&M ended the year first nationally in rush defense (61.1 ypg) and second in scoring defense (12.1 ppg.). The performance helped earn Shoop the 2009 FootballScoop NCAA FCS Coordinator of the Year Award. He was also nominated for FootballScoop's 2011 Defensive Back Coach of the Year Award after his first season at Vanderbilt. Shoop's résumé spans two decades, including three stints as a defensive coordinator (Yale, 1994-96; Villanova, 1997; William & Mary, 2007-10) and three years as the head coach at Columbia (2003-05). Before becoming Columbia's head coach, Shoop served as secondary coach at Boston College from 1999-2002. As an assistant, Shoop has been on the winning sideline of three classic college rivalries: Army-Navy, Harvard-Yale and Boston College-Notre Dame. Shoop played collegiate football at Yale. He earned honorable mention All-Ivy accolades in 1987 as a receiver and was recognized with Yale Football's prestigious Robert Gardner Anderson Memorial Award for team spirit, dedication and leadership. He also earned four letters in baseball. A native of Oakmont, Pa., Shoop was inducted into the Allegheny-Kiski Valley Sports Hall of Fame. Shoop and his wife, Maura, have two children, Tyler and Jay.

HERB HAND OFFENSIVE LINE

Herb Hand returns for a third year to the Commodore coaching staff as offensive line coach. In 2011, Hand did a remarkable job molding an undersized offensive line corps. He innovatively dealt with the lack of roster spots along the offensive line, switching three returning starters to new positions during the summer. The moves – senior Kyle Fischer from guard to tackle, junior Ryan Seymour from tackle to guard, and sophomore Wesley Johnson from tackle to center – gave Hand the versatility needed to get the most out of his unit. The improved line helped Vanderbilt add 25.8 yards to its 2010 rushing average and 41 yards more in total offense. The unit also did a better job of protecting the quarterback, allowing nine fewer sacks. Hand's offensive line also paved the way for junior Zac Stacy to establish new team records with 1,193 rushing yards and 14 rushing touchdowns.

Prior to accepting the Vanderbilt offensive position, Hand worked three years at Tulsa, serving as assistant head coach, offensive coordinator and line coach. Hand helped guide Tulsa to consecutive GMAC Bowl appearances behind one of the NCAA's most explosive spread offenses. As Tulsa's co-offensive coordinator, Hand coached an offensive line that paved the way for the nation's top ranked offense in 2007 and 2008. He was also a finalist for national offensive line coach of the year in 2008. Before joining Tulsa, Hand spent six successful years at West Virginia, serving as tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator. Hand helped the Mountaineers to three Big East Conference titles and five straight postseason bowl games during the span, including a 36-35 victory over Southeastern Conference champion Georgia in the 2006 Sugar Bowl. In 2006, West Virginia finished with an 11-2 record and was among the nation's top-10 teams for most of the season. Hand helped guide an offense that ranked second nationally in rushing, third in scoring, and fourth in total offense. Prior to moving to West Virginia, Hand served as an offensive graduate assistant at Clemson in 1999-2000, as the Tigers participated in the 1999 Peach Bowl and 2000 Gator Bowl. Before that, he served as defensive coordinator and special teams coordinator at Concord College in West Virginia. He also was defensive coordinator at another university in the state, Glenville State, where he helped coach the squad to three WVIAC Championships.

BRENT PRY

CO-DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR; LINEBACKERS Brent Pry enters his second year on James Franklin's staff, serving as linebackers coach. He also holds the title of co-defensive coordinator. Pry joined the Commodore staff after a hugely successful season as defensive coordinator at Georgia Southern, sharing a similar route to Nashville as Vanderbilt defensive coordinator Bob Shoop. And much like Shoop, Pry made the most of the Southeastern Conference coaching opportunity in 2011. Building his linebackers around All-SEC recipient Chris Marve, Pry's corps became one of the most productive defensive positions. The linebackers were vital to Vanderbilt's improvement in virtually every defensive statistical category. The defense soared in SEC and NCAA rankings, finishing the year 18th nationally in total defense. The unit also finished fourth in the SEC in rush defense. While Marve earned All-SEC honors for the third straight year, Pry mentored several untested prospects into key productive roles, including Archibald Barnes, Chase Garnham and POSTseason APPEARANCES: 7 Tristan Strong.

The GSU defense under Pry contributed greatly to the rise in prominence. The unit ranked ninth nationally in total defense and 11th in scoring defense. Pry joined Georgia Southern from the University of Memphis, where he served three years as the Tigers' defensive line coach. At Memphis, he was part of a staff that guided the Tigers to two bowl games, and molded a defensive line in 2008 into one of the Conference USA's best. From 2002-06, Pry served at Louisiana-Lafayette, holding positions of assistant head coach and defensive coordinator. The 2005 LouisianaLafayette squad earned a Sun Belt Conference title and featured five players that eventually played in the NFL. Pry was an assistant coach at Western Carolina from 1998-2001, mentoring the defensive line for two years, then secondary and special teams for two years. He also worked three years as a graduate assistant at Virginia Tech. Pry began his coaching career at East Stroudsburg (Pa.) University in 1993. During Pry's tenure, East Stroudsburg's offense was directed by a standout quarterback who now serves as Vanderbilt's newest head coach. A free safety at Maryville (Tenn.) College in 1988, Pry later transferred to the University of Buffalo. Pry lettered in 1990, then suffered a careerending injury in 1991, only to return as a student coach in 1992. Pry is a second generation college football coach. His father, Jim, has coached at the college level for more than 30 years. Pry and his wife, Amy, are the parents of a son, Colby, and two daughters, Madeline, and Catherine.

RICKY RAHNE QUARTERBACKS

Ricky Rahne returns for his second season as Vanderbilt's quarterback coach under James Franklin. Rahne's coaching ties with Franklin date to his role as an offensive graduate assistant at Kansas State during the mid-2000s. Vanderbilt senior Larry Smith and junior Jordan Rodgers enjoyed success under the former Kansas State offensive coach. Smith increased his completion percentage to a career high 55 percent and provided superb leadership through the season. Rodgers also responded well when called upon at midseason, passing for 1,523 yards, the highest total ever by a first-year Vanderbilt quarterback. Rodgers also threw nine touchdowns, including at least one in all six of his regular season starts. Rahne also utilized Rodgers' running abilities to open up the Vanderbilt offense. The dual abilities allowed Rodgers to rank among the Southeastern Conference total offense leaders during his run as the starter.

He held the position of tight ends coach under legendary Wildcat head coach Bill Snyder the last two years, after mentoring Kansas State running backs in 2007-08. In 2010, Rahne helped Kansas State secure a berth in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium after a 7-5 regular season. The Wildcat offense averaged 33.6 points per game, ranking 22nd in the nation, and produced nearly 200 rushing yards per game. In 2009, Rahne tutored first team All-Big 12 tight end Jeron Mastrud, who ranks second in school history in receptions among tight ends. Directing the Wildcat running backs from 2007-08, Rahne helped tutor All-Big 12 selection James Johnson, who became the fastest Wildcat to rush for 1,000 yards in a season in 2007. Rahne served as the Wildcats' graduate assistant during the 2006 season, working hand-in-hand with Franklin with Wildcat quarterbacks. Specifically, they helped develop a young Freeman into K-State's starting quarterback. Eventually, Freeman put together one of the greatest careers ever by a Kansas State signal caller and became a first-round draft pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Freeman just completed his second year as an NFL starter and is considered one of the league's future stars at quarterback. Before joining the staff at Kansas State, Rahne spent the 2005 season as the running backs coach at Cornell. In 2004, he served as an assistant defensive coach at Holy Cross. A native of Morrison, Colo., Rahne finished his career as Cornell's all-time leader in nearly every passing category and earned the team's MVP honors three times.

game recaps James Franklin Era Opens With Convincing Victory Over Elon

Commodores Late Rally Enough to Defeat Connecticut Huskies

NASHVILLE – Larry Smith threw for two touchdowns and ran for another score, and Vanderbilt beat Elon 45-14 in coach James Franklin's debut with the Commodores. Franklin showed his willingness to gamble with the team considered the worst in the Southeastern Conference, going for it on fourth down three times to keep drives alive scoring 17 points. Smith converted the second on 4th-and-3, running 16 yards for a touchdown. The win snapped a seven-game skid for the Sept. 3, 2011 Commodores who scored more points than they did in all but two games last season. When Trey Nashville Wilson picked off a pass and ran it 21 yards for a TD after Smith's second score, Vandy had almost as many points in 14 seconds as the Commodores averaged (16.9) per game in 2010. Elon outgained the Commodores 323-309 in total offense and held the ball for more than 35 minutes. But Vanderbilt forced three turnovers and turned each of them into touchdowns.

NASHVILLE – James Franklin is bringing a new mindset to the Vanderbilt Commodores, and he refuses to even let them think about letting a game slip away as this program has so many times in the past. Carey Spear kicked a 31-yard field goal with 2:56 left, and the Commodores rallied from 21-14 down in the fourth quarter and beat the Connecticut Huskies 24-21 for their first winning streak since 2008. The victory gives Franklin a 2-0 start, the first by a Vandy coach since Fred Pancoast in 1975. Tim Fugger had two of Vanderbilt's five Sept. 10, 2011 sacks, and the Commodores forced four turnovers, all by Johnny McEntee. Senior Casey Nashville Hayward picked off a McEntee pass at midfield, then weaved his way back across the field to finish off a 50-yard return. His first career interception return for a TD tied it at 21 apiece with 6:45 left. Hayward didn't think McEntee would throw to his side of the field. When he did, Hayward took the ball and looked for the end zone.

VANDER B ILT F OOT B AL l

game recaps Five Interceptions Propel Vanderbilt Gamecock Defense Shuts Down to Convincing Win Over Ole Miss Commodores in First SEC Road Test NASHVILLE – Larry Smith ran for a touchdown, and Trey Wilson returned one of his two interceptions for a 52-yard TD as Vanderbilt scored 21 straight points in the second quarter and beat Mississippi 30-7 in making James Franklin the first new Commodores coach to start 3-0 since World War II. The win marks Vanderbilt's first 3-0 start since 2008 when the Commodores won their first bowl since 1955. The Commodores also beat Mississippi (1-2) in the Southeastern Conference opener for both Sept. 17, 2011 teams for their fifth win in seven years in this series. Nashville Vanderbilt picked off five Ole Miss passes, all off Zack Stoudt, and Wilson's interception return for a touchdown was the Commodores' third this season. It tied the most Vanderbilt interceptions in a game since duplicating the feat against Eastern Michigan four years ago. The Commodores outgained Ole Miss 387-234 in total offense. Jerron Seymour's 9-yard TD run capped the second-quarter scoring for Vandy, and Zac Stacy also ran for 169 yards, including a 77-yard touchdown run.

COLUMBIA, S.C. – For the first time in his seven years at South Carolina, Steve Spurrier's team is 4-0. But like most of his Gamecocks teams, he can't get the offense where he wants it. No. 12 South Carolina beat Vanderbilt 21-3. For the improved Commodores, it marked the first loss under new Head Coach James Franklin after three straight victories. The Commodore defense played extremely well. They forced quarterback Stephen Garcia to throw four interceptions, held Marcus Lattimore under 100 yards rushing, Sept. 24, 2011 and limited All-SEC Gamecock receiver Alshon Columbia, S.C. Jeffery to just two passes for 34 yards. Spurrier had no problem admitting his defense bailed this one out. The Gamecocks held the Commodores (3-1, 1-1) to 77 yards and just five first downs. South Carolina recovered two fumbles, both forced by freshman defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. But great defensive games are just a small comfort to Spurrier, a Heisman Trophy winning quarterback at Florida who then revamped offenses in the SEC as a coach at his alma mater, winning a national title and six SEC crowns with his Fun-and-Gun attack.

Georgia Escapes West End With Wild Win Over Commodores

Late First Half TD, Alabama Defense Sinks Dores on Road TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Vanderbilt played No. 2 Alabama just about even for the first 29 minutes or so. Then the Commodores couldn't stop the Crimson Tide's long end-ofhalf touchdown drive, or do much else from there in a 34-0 defeat. Vanderbilt (3-2, 1-2 SEC) also missed two field goals and allowed a last-minute touchdown in the first half after hovering within seven points. Vandy has now lost two straight games against ranked opponents after a 3-0 start, managing just one field goal against South Oct. 8, 2011 Carolina and the Tide (6-0, 3-0). Tuscaloosa, Ala. A.J. McCarron passed for career-highs of 237 yards and four touchdowns for Alabama while Trent Richardson rushed for 107 yards and a touchdown in his fifth straight 100-yard effort. Still, Alabama looked downright ordinary for most of the first half as it tried to follow up dominant performances against Arkansas and Florida in much-hyped games that turned into mismatches.

NASHVILLE – The Georgia Bulldogs know how much a win means to be too choosy about notching any victory. Aaron Murray threw for a career-high 326 yards and three touchdowns, and Blair Walsh kicked four field goals as the Georgia Bulldogs held off Vanderbilt 33-28. The Commodores move to 3-3. Georgia coach Mark Richt agrees, saying he was more thankful than anything else for a win that helped the Bulldogs (5-2, 4-1) keep pace in the East with South Carolina, a 14-12 winner over Mississippi State earlier. After trailing 20-7 at halftime, the 'Dores Oct. 15, 2011 roared back in the closing seconds to have a Nashville chance to win. Vanderbilt's Udom Umoh blocked Drew Butler's punt with seven seconds left to give the Commodores one last chance at the Georgia 20 before a substitution infraction backed the Commodores up to the Georgia 25. Jordan Rodgers missed Chris Boyd in the end zone, leaving one second for a final play. Rodgers was hit as he threw short to tight end Brandon Barden, who was tackled short of the end zone.

game recaps Rodgers' First Start is Successful; Vanderbilt Defeats Army 44-21

Late Mistakes Cost Vanderbilt in 31-28 Loss to Ranked 'Hogs

NASHVILLE – It may be time to start thinking of Jordan Rodgers as something other than Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' little brother. The Vanderbilt quarterback gave the Commodores just what they've been looking for – a little spark and a lot of consistency – in his first start, a 44-21 win over Army. He rushed for 96 yards and a touchdown, threw for another and helped open up the field for Zac Stacy's career highs of 198 yards rushing and three scores in a 44-21 win over Army. Oct. 22, 2011 Coach James Franklin wasn't ready to announce the Commodores are fixed, though. Nashville The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Commodores (4-3) and more importantly appeared to right an offense that was faltering after a fast start. It also kept them in the race for their first postseason appearance since 2008. Two more wins and they clinch bowl eligibility. The Commodores finished with a season-high 530 yards and a handle on the possibilities to come.

NASHVILLE – Call them the Cardiac Hogs for falling behind early yet again. The eighth-ranked Arkansas Razorbacks only care about the win. Zach Hocker kicked a 42-yard field goal with 6:53 left, and Arkansas rallied from 14 points down to beat Vanderbilt 31-28 – the Razorbacks' fourth straight win. This was the third time this season the Razorbacks have trailed by double digits. They didn't trail by 18 as they did against Texas A&M or 17 last week before beating Mississippi. This time, Vanderbilt led 21-7 with 1:39 left in the first half. The Commodores (4-4, 1-4 SEC) also had the Oct. 29, 2011 ball at the Arkansas 5 in the fourth quarter leading Nashville 28-20 when Zac Stacy fumbled, and Jerry Franklin picked it up and ran it 94 yards for a touchdown. Tyler Wilson found Wright in the end zone for the tying 2-point conversion with 13:25 left.

Slow Start Dooms Vanderbilt; Commodores Lose in Gainesville GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Vanderbilt is getting tired of losing close games. Jordan Rodgers threw for 297 yards and two touchdowns, and Jordan Matthews caught nine passes for 170 yards and a score. But the Commodores lost another tight game, falling 26-21 at Florida. Vanderbilt dropped nail-bitters to Georgia and Arkansas in two of its previous three games. So the Commodores are over moral victories, close calls and near misses. Vanderbilt (4-5, 1-5 Southeastern Conference) nearly pulled this one out. Nov. 5, 2011 But Florida running back Jeff Demps and two Gainesville, Fla. crucial penalties were the difference. Demps, who carried much of the load because of injuries to running back Chris Rainey and quarterback John Brantley, scored on a 5-yard run in the second quarter and saved his best play for last. He made safety Kenny Ladler miss in the open field on a third-and-1 play and went the distance for the winning score. Demps finished with a career-high 158 yards on the ground.

Commodores Hammer Kentucky for Fifth Win, Eye Bowl Game NASHVILLE – The Vanderbilt Commodores now must win away from home if they want their first bowl since 2008 and second since 1982. Zac Stacy ran for 135 yards and three touchdowns, and Jordan Rodgers threw for 207 yards and two TDs as Vanderbilt routed Kentucky 38-8 in snapping a two-game skid. The Commodores (5-5, 2-5 SEC East) improved to 5-2 at home under first-year coach James Franklin. They finish the season at Tennessee and at Wake Forest. Kentucky (4-6, 1-5) had won two straight and Nov. 12, 2011 eight of the last 10 in this series. The Wildcats, with freshman Maxwell Smith making his first Nashville road start, never threatened in this game and now must win both at No. 14 Georgia and in their home finale against Tennessee to extend their school-record streak to a sixth straight bowl game. The Commodores sacked Smith four times and forced a turnover. They did it with their biggest win over Kentucky since a 42-6 win in 1969 and matched their largest margin of victory in an SEC game since 1971 when they beat Mississippi State 49-19.

Stacy's 184 Rushing Yards Lead to Bowl Eligibility in Win at Wake

KNOXVILLE – Every time Vanderbilt came close to taking control against Tennessee, the Commodores got in their own way as the Volunteers registered a 27-21 victory in overtime. No Vanderbilt mistake was more damaging than an interception in overtime. Eric Gordon picked the pass off and ran 90 yards for the touchdown that gave the Volunteers the victory. The Commodores had four turnovers to just two by Tennessee. The officials didn't help Vanderbilt's cause. They first ruled Gordon's knee down but overNov. 19, 2011 turned their call on review, ending the game. SEC Coordinator of Officials Steve Shaw Knoxville, Tenn. said in a statement released more than two hours after the game ended that the play should not have been reviewed. Had the play not been reviewed, Tennessee would have faced first down at the 25-yard line and would have needed just a field goal to win the game. Vanderbilt's last four losses in league action have come by a total of 19 points.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Zac Stacy ran for 184 yards and three touchdowns and Vanderbilt became bowl-eligible by beating sluggish Wake Forest 41-7. Quarterback Jordan Rodgers had 229 total yards for the Commodores (6-6). Rodgers threw for 139 yards and one touchdown and ran for 90 more. Stacy scored on runs of 1 and 20 yards in the second quarter as Vanderbilt built a 20-point halftime lead, then iced the win for Vanderbilt with his 40-yard TD run midway through the fourth quarter. Nov. 26, 2011 Larry Smith, the Commodores' former startWinston-Salem, NC ing QB, also hit a 45-yard flanker option pass for a score, and Ryan Fowler made field goals of 33 and 30 yards, as Vanderbilt became bowl-eligible for the first time since 2008. Tanner Price threw for 157 yards and one touchdown before coming out of the game late in the fourth quarter for the Demon Deacons (6-6), who had their lowest-scoring game of the season.

Autozone liberty bowl recap Vanderbilt Faces Cincinnati in 53rd AutoZone Liberty Bowl MEMPHIS – Isaiah Pead ran for 149 yards and a touchdown, and Ralph David Abernathy IV's 90-yard kickoff return early in the fourth quarter put Cincinnati ahead to stay as the Bearcats edged Vanderbilt 31-24 in the Liberty Bowl. But the 10-3 co-Big East champion Bearcats (10-3) had to work to put away Vanderbilt (6-7), a team that tied for fourth in the SEC's East Division. The Commodores led 21-17 early in the fourth quarter until Abernathy became the Dec. 31, 2011 first Cincinnati player to return a kickoff for a Memphis, Tenn. TD in the program's 13 bowl appearances. The Commodores, making their fifth bowl appearance and first since 2008, finished the season with a 6-7 record. Senior quarterback Larry Smith replaced Vanderbilt starter Jordan Rodgers in the third quarter, and he threw for a season-high 142 yards. Smith's biggest completion was a 68-yard scoring toss to Chris Boyd that gave the Commodores for a 21-17 lead early in the fourth quarter. Vanderbilt lost the lead on the ensuing kickoff.

BLACK & GOLD SPRING GAME recap Large Audience Watches Black & Gold Spring Game NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Commodores concluded Spring Practice with Team Black earning a 33-0 win over Team Gold in the annual Black & Gold Spring Game at Vanderbilt Stadium. Team Black, comprised mostly of first-teamers dominated the pass-heavy game on both sides of the ball, but it was the play of junior wide receiver Jordan Matthews and redshirt freshman wide receiver Josh Grady that the 8,500 in attendance will remember most. Playing for Team Black, the duo combined to score three of Vanderbilt's touchdowns, including the final score of the game when Grady took a direct snap and found Matthews, who bobbled the pass a few times before hauling it in and racing down the field for a 54-yard score with 1:34 to play. Matthews had scored earlier on a 17-yard strike from quarterback Jordan Rodgers in the second quarter and Grady rushed for an eight-yard touchdown out of the Wildcat formation in the third quarter. Matthews finished with seven catches for 105 yards and two touchdowns. Grady did not catch a pass, but carried the ball three times for 35 yards and a score, and completed both of his passes for 58 yards and a touchdown. It was the first real public glimpse at what Grady can do on the field after redshirting last season, and he did not disappoint. Rodgers led Team Black through the air, completing 14-of-29 passes for 126 yards and touchdown passes to Matthews and tight end Austin Monahan. Rodgers' pass to Monahan was the first touchdown of the game, coming with 13:34 to play in the second quarter. The first points of the game came off the foot of kicker Ryan Fowler, who made a 40yard field goal with 11:19 to play in the first quarter. Fowler's field goal was setup after Austyn Carta-Samuels, the starting quarterback for Team Gold, had his pass attempt intercepted by Steven Clarke. Team Black scored two more points on an errant snap by Team Gold that resulted in a safety with 7:25 to play in the fourth quarter after Carta-Samuels lost his footing in the end zone after scooping up the ball. Carta-Samuels saw the bulk of the snaps for Team Gold and finished 6-of-12 passing for 47 yards. Patton Robinette went 3-for-9 for 24 yards for Team Gold, which struggled to move the ball for much of the game. Senior running back Zac Stacy, the SEC's leading returning rusher, carried the ball just two times for one yard for Team Black. Grady led all ball carriers with 35 yards on three carries. Fitz Lassing carried the ball four times for 21 yards for Team Black. Defensively, Eddie Foster paced Team Gold with a game-high eight tackles, including one for a loss, three pass breakups and one interception. Freshman Darreon Herring added a sack of Rodgers to go with five tackles. Team Black was led by Archibald Barnes, who had six tackles. Colt Nichter also added a sack. The game was televised on a tape-delayed basis by CSS.

Playing the Texas State Fair

The Golden Years

Dan McGugin's Commodores took on all comers, and rarely failed to deliver a victory. Traveling by rail across much of the nation, the program compiled a 124-30 record from 1904-22.

Before Oklahoma and Texas started the Red River Shootout, it was Vanderbilt vs. Texas at the Texas State Fair in Dallas. Vanderbilt won five of seven games with the Longhorns between 1921 and 1928.

Overpowering Commodores

From 1910 to 1912, McGugin's teams went 24-2-1, and outscored their opponents by a combined 816-35 margin. Above, fans line Curry Field with Model Ts to watch 1910 game.

Marinangel was eamed First Team All-America by the Sporting News in 1996 after topping the NCAA in punting. Marinangel is perhaps best remembered for one heroic play in his senior year. In the second game against Alabama, Marinangel surprised the Tide special teams and 72,000 onlookers, as he took the snap from center, and then scampered 81 yards for an unbelievable and unlikely touchdown. The run was the longest in the SEC that season and still stands as the longest in school history. Marinangel’s 46.6-yard average is the second highest single-season in team history. His 79-yard punt versus South Carolina is also tied for the Commodores’ second longest ever.

In 1988, Mitchell was a Third Team AllAmerica after compiling one of the finest seasons ever by a Commodore receiver. Teaming with quarterback Eric Jones, Mitchell hauled in 78 catches for 1,213 yards and five touchdowns. The receiving yardage total remains a Vanderbilt team record and the SEC’s seventh highest total ever. He surpassed 100 yards receiving in six games that season. Mitchell burst onto the SEC scene as a freshman, hauling in a team-record 45 receptions. He added 31 and 34 receptions as a sophomore and junior, respectively. Mitchell ranks among team leaders in virtually every career receiving category. He tops the list, – and ranks third all-time in the SEC, with 2,964 receiving yards.

A Nashville native, Gaines was selected First Team Kodak All-America by the nation’s football coaches. In 1987, he established an SEC single-season record for total tackles with 214.

Gaines also posted one of the greatest greatest efforts ever by a 'Dore as a senior by recording a school-record 37 tackles versus Tulane. After the season, he was named MVP of the Blue-Gray Game after racking up 18 tackles and was named Tennessee Amateur Athlete of the Year by the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame.

In 1927, he guided the squad to an 8-1-2 record, including a win over Tulane when noted writer Blinkey Horn described Spears as “All-World” after a two-touchdown effort. Spears concluded his career by outgaining the entire Alabama squad in a 14-7 Vanderbilt win. One of McGugin's most beloved players, Spears went on to chair his own law firm. He was a significant contributor to Vanderbilt, serving on the Board of Trust from 1954 until his death in 1992.

Henry Wakefield End, 1924

Known as “Hek,” Wakefield was a two-way standout for McGugin's Commodores. In 1924 was named First Team AllAmerica by INS, Lawrence Perry, Outing and Billy Evans publications. In 1922, Wakefield helped the 'Dores to a 8-0-1 campaign. He was a starter in the inaugural 0-0 game in Dudley Field against Michigan. Wakefield starred on teams that went 26-5-4. As injuries mounted in 1924, Wakefield was named captain. He quickly proved worthy of the honor, scoring twice in a win over Auburn, then defeating Georgia Tech with a 37-yard drop-kick field goal. In the finale, he played every minute in a 16-0 win over Minnesota.

lynn Bomar End, 1923

A devastating blocker and outstanding runner, Bomar was the first great end of the Dan McGugin Era. Bomar was named All-America by Walter Camp. Known to fans as the “Blonde Bear,” Bomar helped Vanderbilt to “the

Championship of the South.” His athletic career ended in 1924 when he suffered a brain hemorrhage following a blow to the chin. Though temporarily in danger, he fully recovered and enjoyed a distinguished law enforcement career. He was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame in 1956.

vanderbilt all-americans Josh Cody

irby "rabbit" Curry

Lewis Hardage

Cody is arguably the most decorated player in Vanderbilt team history. Known as a punishing blocker, Cody is the only Commodore ever to earn AllAmerica honors in three different seasons. The Football Writers Association honored Cody after the 1915, 1916 and 1919 seasons by the Football Writers Association. Cody was the main ingredient of a powerful offensive line that propelled Vanderbilt to 23 wins in 25 games. He sparked the McGugin's famous "Point-A-Minute" offense of 1915. Cody became a successful head coach, serving in that role at Clemson and Temple. Cody was inducted into the National College Football Hall of Fame in 1970.

A legend in Vanderbilt history, Curry was superb on and off the field. Small in stature, Curry's display of talent, heart and leadership and heart was cherished by Vandy followers. Selected as a Third Team AllAmerica and All-Southern Conference pick in 1916, Curry was a field general at quarterback who displayed a knack for brilliant runs. The Texan guided the team to a 7-1-1 record in 1916 and directed the famous “Point-A-Minute” squad of 1915. He was also a scholar athlete, elected junior class president and as the school's prestigious Bachelor of Ugliness by the student body. Unfortunately, Curry’s life was cut short. Just two years after graduating, Curry died when his plane was shot down over France in WWI.

After transferring from Auburn to enter Dental School, Hardage was part of what observers called the Commodores’ “fastest backfield.” Hardage starred on tremendous squads. As captain in 1911-12, he helped Vanderbilt go 16-2-1 overall, and their opponents 578-27. Hardage earned Third Team All-America and All-Southern Conference recognition as a senior. Hardage dominated several games in 1912, scoring 95 points for the squad that was the nation's top scoring team. He also was a chief factor in a pair of early season blowouts, 105-0 over Bethel and 100-0 against Maryville. The total against Bethel remains a team record.

ray Morrison

W.E. Metzer

Owsley Manier

When Ray Morrison ended his career in 1911, Coach McGugin called him “the best I ever saw.” More than two decades later, a panel of local sportswriters tabbed Morrison as the 'Dores' top QB through its first 50 years. An All-America in 1911, the slightly-built Morrison was a talented player and leader. In two years as a starter, Morrison guided the team to a 16-1-1 – the lone loss coming at powerful Michigan 9-8. He later became a great coach, serving 34 seasons at the collegiate level. While McGugin served in the military during 1918, he was the team’s interim coach. When McGugin retired in 1934, Morrison was his handpicked successor. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1954.

Nicknamed “Frog,” Metzger was Dan McGugin's first great lineman, earning Third Team AllAmerica recognition in 1910. In 1909, Metzger was a sensation in the backfield, rushing for four scores to singlehandedly beat Mercer 28-0, before suffering a leg fracture. In 1910, he moved to the line, anchoring a unit that helped produce a 8-0-1 record. On defense, he assisted a unit that allowed only eight points. Metzger shared the spotlight with QB Ray Morrison in 1911. He played brilliantly, helping the Commodores to a 8-1 record.

Joining the team in Dan McGugin’s first year on campus, Manier was a three-year starter and a big reason why Vanderbilt became an instant Southern power under McGugin. As the team’s top fullback, Manier was All-Southern and a Third Team All-America in 1906, becoming the first Commodore so honored. He was an offensive machine for McGugin’s 1906 squad, scoring three times against Kentucky and on five occasions in 78-0 victory over Alabama. Manier was a key factor in the Commodores' 24-1 overall record. Eventually, Manier returned to academia, and became professor emeritus of clinical medicine at the Vanderbilt School of Medicine.

Vanderbilt 25 Auburn 13 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Still hurting from a dislocated elbow suffered in the Tennessee game, quarterback Don Orr scored two touchdowns and set up another as the Commodores defeated No. 8-ranked Auburn in the 11th Gator Bowl 25-13. The Vanderbilt defense provided a huge lift for the Commodores, recovering five fumbles in the victory. Vanderbilt’s first score was set up when Orr recovered an Auburn fumble. Eight plays later, Joe Stephenson ran seven yards for the VU touchdown. Auburn answered on a 38-yard TD pass from Howell Tubbs to Rob James in the second quarter, but the rest of the game belonged to the Black and Gold. On Vanderbilt’s following possession, Orr carried the ball 44 yards to the Tigers’ 28. He then passed to Joe Scales, who advanced to the Auburn 4-yard line. On the next play, Orr carried the ball over the line after a fake to fullback Phil King to give Vanderbilt a 13-7 lead at the half. At the opening of the third quarter, Vanderbilt guard Sonny Tatum recovered an Auburn fumble, and the Commodores marched quickly into scoring position as Orr crossed the goal line for his second touchdown of the day to make the score 19-7. Both teams scored once more in the fourth quarter. Vanderbilt’s score came on a one-yard run off right tackle by Charley Horton. Vanderbilt coach Art Guepe cleared his bench in the final minutes, using 38 of the 39 men dressed for the game. Capitalizing on Auburn’s five fumbles and using an ailing quarterback, the Commodores captured its first bowl appearance.

ATLANTA, Ga. – The 1974 Peach Bowl was a game with no champion but two winners, the Commodores and Texas Tech Red Raiders. Despite the effective rushing of Red Raider tailback Larry Isaac and fullback Cliff Hoskins, the Commodore defense held Texas Tech without points in the first half and entered halftime with a 3-0 lead after Mark Adams kicked a 31-yard field goal with 10 minutes remaining. Neither team was able to muster much offense in the third quarter, though Texas Tech did tie the score at 3-3 after a drive stalled at the Vanderbilt 16-yard line. Early in the fourth quarter, the Commodores’ freshman lineman Dennis Harrison stopped a deep Texas Tech threat by blocking a Red Raider field goal attempt. The Tech drive started following one of two Vanderbilt turnovers during the game. After the blocked field goal, the Commodores responded with a possession that ended with Adams’ second field goal of the day, a 26-yarder that resulted in a 6-3 Vanderbilt margin. However, Texas Tech tied the game at the 2:00 mark on a 35-yard field goal by Brian Hall. On its final drive, Vanderbilt could not move into scoring range. The Commodore offense struggled much of the day, with quarterback David Lee hitting just five of 14 attempts. Running back Jamie O’Rourke had 76 rushing yards. The limited offensive production from both teams resulted in numerous defensive and scoring records being set in the game. Within hours of the conclusion, Vanderbilt Head Coach Steve Sloan announced he was leaving his position to accept the head coaching job at Texas Tech.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Without question, the Hall of Fame Bowl was one of college football’s most exciting 1982 postseason games. The game matched one of the nation’s most potent aerial attacks featuring Vanderbilt All-SEC quarterback Whit Taylor and one of America’s most devastating rushing attacks in the Falcons’ vaunted option attack. Offensively, this game lived up to the hype as 33 Hall of Fame records were broken and another eight were tied in Legion Field. Unfortunately for Vanderbilt, Air Force walked away the winner 36-28 after a remarkable comeback. For three quarters, Whit Taylor was unstoppable. Connecting with a variety of wide receivers and running backs, Taylor’s fourth touchdown pass of the game, a four-yarder to Norman Jordan, gave the Commodores a 28-17 margin entering the fourth quarter. Down by double digits, the Air Force Academy scored rushing touchdowns on three consecutive possessions to take the victory. Taylor was named the Most Valuable Player, after completing a team-record 38 passes of 51 attempts for 452 yards, which remains as the second highest singlegame passing yardage total in Vanderbilt history. Jordan’s performance arguably was more remarkable. Though rushing for just four yards, Jordan hauled in 20 receptions for 173 yards and three TDs, breaking five Hall of Fame Bowl records.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vanderbilt won a bowl game for the first time in exactly 53 years, with Bryant Hahnfeldt kicking a 45-yard field goal with 3:26 left for a 16-14 win over #24 Boston College in the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl held on New Year's Eve in Nashville's LP Field. The Commodores hadn't played in a bowl since 1982 – the SEC's longest drought. The victory gave Vanderbilt (7-6) its first winning season since that season. This is just the fourth time in the past 50 years that Vanderbilt has won seven games in a season. The Eagles got the ball twice after Hahnfeldt's third field goal. They had to punt the first time, then Vanderbilt DB Myron Lewis picked off a pass with 1:36 left. Vanderbilt scored its lone touchdown when freshman safety Sean Richardson fell on a Commodore punt that bounced off the knee of BC's Paul Anderson with 10:35 left in the third quarter. The Commodores played musical chairs at quarterback, giving redshirt freshman Larry Smith his first career start. Hahnfeldt, a Nashville product playing his final game as a Commodore, matched a single-game career high with the three field goals. The Commodores also forced two interceptions while allowing none.

Vanderbilt, founded 139 years ago by a $1 million gift by Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt, is one of the nation’s leading institutions of higher learning, a mid-size, private comprehensive research university that emphasizes undergraduate learning and living experiences. Members of the 2012 undergraduate student body, including Commodore student-athletes, are outstanding academic achievers and active participants in the campuses' many organizations and activities. They also compose the most diverse enrollment ever at Vanderbilt as the university continues to attract students from many ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, geographic and religious backgrounds. Since its inception, the university has taken great pride in the quality of education – and quality of life – its students enjoy. Each of the four undergraduate colleges – College of Arts and Science, School of Engineering, Blair School of Music and Peabody College – attracts students with varying goals and dreams. At Vanderbilt, professors know their students’ names and take an interest in students’ ideas. Recognized globally for their research and scholarship prowess, faculty members believe in the importance of balancing professional pursuits with classroom instruction, and they value their relationships with students. Some of the world’s leading scholars teach at Vanderbilt, helping students develop an academic program that meets individual objectives, and they encourage students to enhance primary areas of study by choosing among hundreds of elective courses, course-related

Named Vanderbilt’s eighth chancellor in 2008, Zeppos has taken a keen interest in athletics at Vanderbilt during his more than two decades at the university. “I don’t do the operations,” Zeppos said. “I don’t call the plays, I don’t throw the passes. I see my job as simply trying to do whatever I can to support all of the talented people who do these things.” This support has included the endorsement of an athletics capital improvement plan expected to surpass $50 million, which orchestrates efforts to improve the student experience for athletes and assists with recruiting. “One thing I consider the ultimate compliment is when a coach calls me and says, ‘I’ve got a couple of recruits here. Could you meet them?’” Institute Board. A distinguished legal scholar, teacher and executive, Zeppos served From 1982 to 1987, Zeppos practiced law in Washington, D.C., at the from 2002 to February 2008 as Vanderbilt’s chief academic officer, United States Department of Justice and at Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering, overseeing the university’s undergraduate, graduate and professional where he specialized in appellate litigation involving complex regulatory, education programs and research in liberal arts and sciences, statutory and constitutional matters. engineering, music, education, business, law and divinity.

In a bold move to strength Vanderbilt's commitment to admitting undergraduates on the basis of accomplishment and achievement, rather than their ability to pay, Zeppos significantly expanded the financial aid program in 2009. By replacing undergraduate, need-based loans with grant and scholarship assistance, the university opened its doors wider to highly talented and qualified students of all economic, cultural and geographical backgrounds. The expanded aid program is funded by a combination of strategic budget allocations, the university's Shape the Future fundraising campaign, which under Zeppos' leadership raised over $1.9 billion, and the current Opportunity Vanderbilt campaign. Zeppos was recognized with five teaching awards at the law school before serving as an associate dean, associate provost, and provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs.

vice chancellor david williams II David Williams II is Vice Chancellor for Athletics and University Affairs and Athletics Director. He guides the Vanderbilt Athletics, Recreation, Intramural and Club Sports programs. Williams has firmly placed his stamp on Vanderbilt Athletics and has positioned the program among the most innovative in the nation. The university's increased athletic success and investment in its athletics and recreation programs resulted in Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos asking Williams in July 2012 to take on a larger role in shaping these areas of the university - allowing for Williams to focus on maintaining and building on this momentum after previously also holding the positions of general counsel for the university and secretary for the university and Vanderbilt University Medical Center while guiding the athletics program. Williams' key leadership role in the administration of Vanderbilt Athletics since 2003 has led to a bold new direction. Under Williams, the Vanderbilt program has had many successes on and off the field of competition, including an initiative to more fully integrate Commodore athletics into the total Vanderbilt student life experience. The model has been successful. Under his guidance, a program was started to allow more overseas travel and study for student athletes and the cumulative grade point for Vanderbilt student-athletes has continued to improve, reaching its highest level in more than two decades. Competitive success, such as all four revenue sports (men's and women's basketball, football and baseball) participating in post-season play, is becoming an expectation on campus and beyond. Under Williams' tenure, Vanderbilt won the SEC tournament and regular season baseball championships and made its first appearance in the College World Series. Vanderbilt captured its first national championship (in women's bowling), went to two bowl games after a 26-year drought, saw the women's basketball team compete in the NCAA tournament every year and sent the men's basketball team into postseason play, advancing as far as the Sweet 16 in the NCAA tournament. In 2012, the men's basketball team won its first SEC tournament championship in 61 years. The women's cross country team won its first SEC championship in fall 2011. In addition, there have been numerous teams playing in the postseason and finishing in the top 25 in the nation. Individual accomplishment has also been increasing, with numerous Vanderbilt athletes playing professional sports all over the world. In 2011, an SEC-record 12 baseball players were drafted into Major League Baseball and two men's basketball players were drafted in the first round of the 2012 NBA draft - along with the first pick in the second round. The university is also increasingly hosting postseason play - including the first and second rounds of the NCAA women's basketball tournament, two NCAA baseball regionals and one NCAA baseball super regional, and the 2012 NCAA women's golf championship, which was the first time Vanderbilt has hosted a national championship. Williams has overseen the recruitment and hiring of nine outstanding head coaches - most recently football coach James Franklin and mens' golf coach Scott Limbaugh. He also has overseen numerous facility upgrades, including an extensive refurbishing of Vanderbilt Stadium - new turf, lights, video board and football locker rooms, an expansion of baseball park Hawkins Field, the addition of new tennis courts and amenities at Brownlee O. Currey Center and renovations in Memorial Gym, which includes the recently installed new Jumbotron, the Hendrix Dining Room and McGugin Center. In addition to the facility upgrades, he is also spearheading a project that reimagines sports and fitness at Vanderbilt moving toward the trend on many college campuses of combined recreation facilities that serve students, faculty and staff. The project involves enhancing the existing Student Recreation Center and making it open to the entire Vanderbilt community as well as the construction of a multipurpose facility that will include an indoor practice field that can be used for varsity football, soccer and lacrosse as well as intramural and club sports teams. An indoor track - open for use by the university's

athletic teams and students, faculty and staff - will also be part of the multipurpose facility. Williams has also played an increasing role in collegiate athletics with his service on a number of NCAA panels. He is a member of the Division I Academic Cabinet, which reviews all measures dealing with academics before they are passed on to the Board of Directors; is chairman of the fivemember Infractions Appeals Committee, which is responsible for hearing all the appeals for NCAA violations and makes the final decisions regarding appeals; a member of the working group on enforcement, which is planning the adoption of an expanded, four-level violation structure for infractions as part of NCAA President Mark Emmert's intercollegiate reform effort. He is also a member of the SEC team responsible for negotiating national television contracts for the conference. Williams' activities at Vanderbilt also include his being a tenured full professor at the Law School where he teaches tax law, sports law and education law. He has also taught a class on Law and Higher Education at the university's Peabody College of education and human development, and occasionally teaches courses in the undergraduate curriculum. He was named vice chancellor, general counsel and secretary of Vanderbilt in 2000 and previously oversaw Vanderbilt student affairs. He joined Vanderbilt after serving as a professor of law and in numerous administrative roles at the Ohio State University for 14 years. A native of Detroit, Williams is a graduate of Northern Michigan University where he was a member of the track team. He also earned a Master of Business Administration and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Detroit, and an L.L.M. in taxation from New York University. Before entering law school, Williams spent 10 years as a teacher and coach in the Detroit public school system. Williams is active in the Nashville area community, serving with several organizations, including the Nashville Public Television Board of Directors, Nashville Symphony, Nashville Sports Council, Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame, Adventure Science Center, 100 Black Men of Middle Tennessee, the Community Foundation, Special Olympics of Tennessee, the Center for Nonprofit Management and the Rotary Club of Nashville. He is a former member of the Nashville branch of the Atlanta Federal Reserve Board. Professionally, he is an active member of the American Corporate Counsel Association, the National Association of College and University Attorneys and the American Bar Association. As a member of ABA's Section of Business Law, Williams has served as a member of the Corporate Counsel Committee. He held terms on two prestigious legal committees - the ABA Standing Committee on Public Education and the ABA Section on Legal Education and Admissions Standards Review Committee. Williams also is a member of the American Law Institute, and a past member of the Harry Phillips Inn of Court. He has served on a number of ABA Accreditation site visits of law schools and has completed a term on the Membership Review Committee of the American Association of Law Schools. Williams recently completed a three-year term on the board of directors for the National Association for Colleges and University Attorneys. He is serving a second term on Nashville Mayor Karl Dean's Procurement Standards Board. Williams has taught at the law schools of the University of Detroit, Capital University, The Ohio State University and Vanderbilt, and directed the Ohio State University Law Program in Oxford, England, in 1992 and 1995. He was elected outstanding law professor at both the University of Detroit and The Ohio State University. Williams and his wife, Gail, have four children: Erika, a grade school teacher in Detroit; David Williams III, an academic counselor at Michigan State University; Samantha, a recent Brown University graduate who is now working in Washington, DC, and Nicholas, a high school senior who competes in basketball, soccer and track. Gail Williams, a graduate of the University of Michigan and the University of Detroit College of Law, serves as the associate director of community relations of Vanderbilt. She is serving her third year as president of the University School of Nashville Board of Trustees and is the past chair of the Metro Transit Authority where she continues to serve as a Board member.

vanderbilt stadium

New Stadium IMproVEMentS Several substantial improvements are in progress at Vanderbilt Stadium, the Commodores' on-campus venue for the last three decades. Crews are nearing completion of the latest upgrades to the 40,550-capacity stadium opened in 1981, including construction of a fan-friendly hillside in the north end zone, installation of an expanded video board in the north end zone, new stadium lighting system, and a synthetic surface on Dudley Field. The work adds to other major recent improvements. A thorough exterior renovation was completed in 2008-09, including new plazas and extrances at Gates 2 & 3, expansion of the concourse and an exterior paint and brick effort to unify Vanderbilt Stadium and the program's two other biggest sporting venues, Hawkins Field and Memorial Gym. The stadium was opened in 1981 on the same site as Dudley Field, which stood at the corner of Jess Neely Drive and Natchez Trace since 1922. Though the old stadium was demolished prior to the 1981 project, the Commodores continue to play on the original Dudley Field plot.
