THE UNIVERSITY

VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY

Unique Collegiate Environment Located in the popular Midtown district of Nashville, Vanderbilt is regarded among the nation's finest universities. The private research university enrolls 6,794 undergraduate and 5,700 postgraduate students, who arrive on campus from all 50 states and more than 90 countries. The university was founded 137 years ago when New York shipping and rail magnate "Commodore" Cornelius Vanderbilt provided an initial $1 million endowment. Vanderbilt is a charter member of the Southeastern Conference and the only private school among its 12 schools. Vanderbilt is ranked among the top universities in America. In its popular annual "Best Colleges" edition, U.S. News & World Report ranked Vanderbilt at No. 17 this year among all national universities. The magazine also listed Vanderbilt No. 2 among universities 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 Commons, a 10-house, state-of-the-art complex for all first-year students that has attracted national acclaim for its design and unique collegiate living experience. Vanderbilt offers numerous degrees in four undergraduate colleges: the College of Arts and Science, Peabody College, School of Engineering and Blair School Music.

The University

For many years, the Vanderbilt football team has been an academic achievement leader in the Southeastern Conference and NCAA. In 2008, the Commodore program received the American Football Coaches Association Academic Achievement Award after graduating 95 percent of its 2001 recruiting class. It was the third time for Vanderbilt to claim the award. Vanderbilt topped the SEC in 2010 graduation success rates released by the NCAA.

NASHVILLE

MUSIC CITY USA

It's Fun and Friendly Travel + Leisure magazine recently had this to say about Vanderbilt's hometown: H ranked Nashville as America’s Friendliest City, for the third time in six years. H ranked Nashville No. 2 in the U.S. for live music venues. H ranked Nashville No. 4 nationally for affordable trips. H ranked Nashville top 10 nationally for safety, affordable hotels and singles scene.

Nashville is Vanderbilt's Hometown Vanderbilt's hometown of Nashville is a vibrant, engaging city known proudly as "Music City, U.S.A." Located little more than a mile from downtown, 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. Boasting a metropolitan 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 several distinct entertainment and business districts. The downtown blends state and municipal complexes with the popular Lower Broadway-Second 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, and the 19,000-seat Bridgestone Arena. Other popular districts for music and food include The Gulch, East Nashville and three areas near Vanderbilt – Midtown, Hillsboro Village and Elliston Place.

JEWEL OF THE SOUTH

Nashville

City Offers Bounty of Music, Sports While the music scene is remarkable in Nashville, it also offers an array of sporting attractions to rival any city its size in America. Nashville wraps its arms around the music industry. And the stars definitely come out. Drawn by famous clubs and massive venues, such artists as Kanye West, Coldplay, Ke$ha, Green Day, Dave Matthews Band, Drake, Miley Cyrus and Daughtry have played the city in the past year. Country acts as Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley and Lady Antebellum have thrilled audiences in recent months.

When it comes to sports, Nashville also appears bigger than its population. Besides the full slate of Vanderbilt collegiate athletics, Nashville is home to two successful professional teams: the NFL's Tennessee Titans and the NHL's Predators. Since playing at Vanderbilt Stadium nearly a decade ago, the Titans have become one of the NFL's most consistent winners. The Preds also are perennial contenders to reach the playoffs hoping for a run for the Stanley Cup. The city also has AAA baseball in the Nashville Sounds, Nationwide NASCAR racing, steeplechase horse racing, and the popular Music City Marathon.

Jonathan Goff

Lewis, Welch Taken in 2010 Draft Two former standouts who played important roles in the Commodores' 2008 Music City Bowl-winning campaign, Myron Lewis and Thomas Welch, are the most recent Vanderbilt players to be selected in the NFL draft. Lewis, an All-Southeastern Conference cornerback, was selected by Tampa Bay as the third pick of the 3rd round. Welch, a two-year starting offensive tackle at Vanderbilt, was selected by New England as the first pick in the seventh round. Lewis and Welch become the eighth and ninth Commodores selected in the NFL draft since 2005.

COMMODORES IN THE PROS

Developing players

Commodores with Chicago: D.J. Moore, Jay Cutler, Chris Williams, Hunter Hillenmeyer, Earl Bennett

Impressing Scouts at Pro Day Each April, NFL talent evaluators converge on the campus to monitor Vanderbilt’s Pro Day when Commodore seniors showcase their talents to would-be NFL suitors. A strong performance on Pro Day by fifthyear senior Ryan Hamilton resulted in a free agent deal with New Orleans. Hamilton didn't stick with the Saints, but is with Philadelphia entering training camp after Eagle scouts were impressed during his workout.

Why was the workout so important to Hamilton? The 2009 co-captain used Pro Day to showcase his skills after missing the last 10 games of the season due to a torn pectoral muscle. The workout allowed the assembled NFL player evaluators to realize Hamilton was fully recovered from the injury. Days after the draft, other Commodores such as center Bradley Vierling and defensive end Broderick Stewart earned NFL tryouts.

TRAINING to win

Strength Training

Turning Prospects into Players Three Commodore players with Alabama roots – Joey Bailey, Jabo Burrow and Sean Richardson – have developed from raw prospects to SEC-caliber contributors under the training direction of Vanderbilt conditioning director John Sisk. Bailey and Burrow arrived on campus as prospective linemen, both weighing about 230 pounds. Richardson, a likely safety, was plenty athletic, but carried just 185 pounds on a lanky frame. Entering preseason camp, Bailey has added 45 pounds, a likely starting job at center, and new responsibilities as offensive co-captain.

Burrow's conditioning has resulted in a 285-pound frame capable of competing for a starting job at guard. Now at 6'2", 215-lbs., Richardson is an all-SEC safety candidate. The trio are representative of many on the Vanderbilt roster: prep standouts with plenty of untapped potential. Under the supervision of Sisk and his professional assistants, many similar athletes have developed into Commodore standouts and eventual NFL stars. That list includes two firstround draft picks now starting for the Chicago Bear offense: quarterback Jay Cutler and tackle Chris Williams.

Sisk's Training Philosophy To develop a powerful, physical and mentally tough team through a structured strength, speed and conditioning system that utilizes competition, discipline and team work.

Co-hosts Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit of ESPN's College GameDay practice their "Who Ya With" hand signs during a break from shooting on campus in 2008. The gesture has gained popularity across campus and at sporting events since being introduced by Commodore cheerleaders during the 2003 season.

Magic Noori: Caring Food Coach Vanderbilt Athletics is the proud home to the Hendrix Room and Majid “Magic” Noori, America’s No. 1 collegiate food coach. Performing his culinary magic in the Hendrix Room dining facility, Magic’s nutritional knowledge provides the greatest benefit to Commodore athletes, helping maximize their athletic potential by preparing carefully planned meals. Sports Illustrated has focused on Noori’s talents in five editions. Many others, such as CBS This Morning and USA Today, have featured Magic’s culinary creations.

All Vanderbilt freshman student-athletes reside at The Commons, one of the most unique and spectacular on-campus collegiate living environments in the nation. In October 2008, a national television audience enjoyed an up-close look at The Commons when ESPN used the venue to broadcast their first College GameDay show from the campus. Opened in 2008 in the southeast quadrant of the Vanderbilt campus, The Commons includes 10 residence halls, or "houses," spacious study and social areas, and the showpiece Commons Center, a modern dining and activity hub, all located on the Peabody campus.

Commoodore Traditions

An hour before every game played in Vanderbilt Stadium, two Commodore players lead the squad through Star Walk festivities by carrying a ship anchor from team lockers in McGugin Athletic Center to Dudley Field. The anchor, introduced by former head coach Bobby Johnson in 2005 as a sign of team unity and strength, is also taken on the road with the Commodores. The team's Leadership Council decides which player will represent the offensive and defensive units carrying the anchor. Those selected to carry the anchor are told of their added gameday responsibility at the conclusion of Thursday's practice.

QUICK FACTS/TABLE OF CONTENTS The Commodore Creed

QUICK FACTS/TABLE OF CONTENTS

Adapted from the Champion’s Creed written by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. Never underestimate your opponent. Work on your weaknesses until they become your strong points. Remember that a great effort is usually the result of a great attitude. Dedicate yourself to a mighty purpose. Win with humility, lose with grace. Ignore those who discourage you. Work to improve your moral and spiritual strengths as well as your physical ones. Remember how you conduct yourself off the field is just as important as how you conduct yourself on the field. Talent is God given – be humble. Fame is man-given – be thankful. Conceit is self-given – be careful. Don’t ask to be deprived of tension and discipline – these are tools that shape success. Do what has to be done, when it has to be done, and as well as it can be done. Remember that when you’re not working to improve, your competition is. Always give your best. Practice like a champion. Play like a champion. Live like a champion. © 1996 by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Commodore Information

Rajaan Bennett 1991-2010 The Commodores are without one student- athlete who was a key member of the 2010 signing class, Rajaan Bennett of Powder Springs, Ga. Bennett, a highly sought-after running back from McEachern High School, died tragically on Feb. 18, 2010. Bennett was the victim of a residential shooting that shocked the McEachern community and the Atlanta metropolitan area. At a memorial service days after the death, his literature teacher read an essay entitled "Strength" written by Bennett within a week of his death. Bennett's essay closed with the following lines: "There will never be a time that I will give up. I work hard at whatever I do for that man upstairs to smile down on me with the rays of the sun. "My drive cannot be stopped or even slowed down, because every obstacle has a way around it. "Every day I become stronger from the weights physically, the books mentally and life emotionally. There is no limit to Rajaan Bennett my strength and at the end of the day, I want to be known as the strongest." Bennett rushed for 1,857 yards and 28 touchdowns as a senior captain, helping McEachern to an undefeated regular season. One of Georgia's most decorated seniors, Bennett earned the state's AAAAA Offensive Player of the Year Award. At McEachern, Bennett was a campus leader and honors student. The son of Narjaketha Bennett and the late Charles Bennett, Rajaan was the oldest of four siblings: brother, Desy, and sisters Narcharlette and Taelor.

2010 OUTLOOK

ALL-STAR CANDIDATES

Sean Richardson Jr., Safety, Linden, Ala.

ALL-STAR CANDIDATES

2010 Outlook Warren Norman So., RB/RS, Stone Mtn., Ga.

Casey Hayward Jr., Cornerback, Perry, Ga.

Vanderbilt coaches believe Hayward has the potential to follow Myron Lewis and D.J. Moore as stellar Commodore cornerbacks. In 2009, Hayward picked off two passes, defended seven others and topped all SEC defensive backs with 8.5 tackles for loss.

Brandon Barden R-Jr., TE, Lincolnton, Ga.

Barden enters his junior season with 57 catches, tops on the team. The former prep quarterback finished 2009 with 29 receptions, good for 357 yards and a score.

2010 Vanderbilt football fact book

The SEC's reigning Freshman of the Year is coming off one of the most productive seasons ever by a Commodore. A dynamic tailback/ return specialist, Norman broke the SEC freshman record with 1,941 all-purpose yards. He also just missed the Vanderbilt freshman rushing records with 783 yards.

Zac Stacy

So., RB, Centreville, Ala. Injuries slowed Stacy in 2009, but he still rushed for 478 yards. Though overshadowed by Norman's achievements, it was Stacy that opened the '09 season as a starter at tailback.

2010 OUTLOOK

Team Outlook This Vanderbilt preseason camp hardly resembles the 2009 one when Bobby Johnson greeted a Commodore squad coming off a 7-6 campaign capped by victory in the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl. In early August, a new leader – interim head coach Robbie Caldwell – will guide the squad arriving for camp. The veteran Vanderbilt assistant took over in mid-July when Johnson unexpectedly announced his retirement. When camp opens in early August, Caldwell and his staff are expected to greet more than 12 starters and 44 letterwinners from a 2009 Commodore squad that ended a disappointing 2-10 season with eight straight losses. "Our players are working extremely hard. Our strength director said the team's offseason conditioning effort has been tremendously successful. We will enter preseason camp in extremely sharp and ready to get to work," Caldwell said. "Everyone associated with this team, from the coaches to players, was disappointed with the 2009 season and wants to make amends to how it went. I believe we have the talent to compete for a win every Saturday, and I look forward to the challenge of the coming season," Caldwell added. Six starters return to an offense in search of consistent play in the interior front, more playmakers at skill positions, and better decision making and execution from the quarterback position. Across the line of scrimmage, more physicality against the rushing attack and greater success in key third-down and red-zone situations are keys to more victories. Category................

Total Offense....................... 256.2 (12) In 2009, the Commodores introduced a no-huddle offense, but failed to keep pace in several key categories, Rushing Offense.................... 133.6 (7) including scoring offense and total offense. The lack of progress forced Johnson to overhaul offensive coaching Passing Offense.................. 122.6 (12) responsibilities. In his first full year as a starter, Smith threw for 1,126 yards in nine games, but completed less than 50 percent of his passes. Smith's season came to an end prematurely when he suffered a season-ending torn hamstring against Georgia Tech in what appeared to be his best outing of the campaign. The strong-armed Smith needs to develop better touch on short to intermediate throws. Fully healthy, it appears Smith can win the starting nod with an impressive preseason camp. One of the Commodores' most impressive players during spring drills was Jared Funk. The fifth-year senior displayed growing confidence and understanding of the playbook to go with arguably the strongest arm among the quarterback prospects. Another expected to compete for the starting role will be transfer junior Jordan Rodgers, a California junior college product who showed talent and poise in the spring. Despite the presence of three upperclassmen, redshirt freshman Charlie Goro could be a wildcard in the competition. Goro came to Vanderbilt after a Parade All-American prep career near Chicago.

Each had success adding strength in the offseason conditioning effort. Receivers coach Charlie Fisher also will look to several other returning prospects, including Turner Wimberly, Akeem Dunham, Brady Brown, Tray Herndon and Jameson Sackey. Any of four freshmen signees – Chris Boyd, Jonathan Krause, Jordan Matthews and Trent Pruitt – could find their way into a gameday role. Position mentor Ted Cain needs to identify more depth behind Barden at tight end. That task gets easier if Austin Monahan is at full strength after missing spring drills recuperating from offseason surgery. Mason Johnston will get a chance to audition for the depth chart by likely receiving plenty of snaps this spring. Ryan van Rensburg also is an option at either tight end or H-back, as is signee Blake Gowder.

OFFENSIVE LINE The last time Vanderbilt replaced as many offensive line starters as they will this year, the Commodores promptly made their first postseason appearance in a quarter century at the 2008 Music City Bowl. Perhaps history will repeat itself. The line is thin in numbers, and lacks serious experience. Despite those facts, interim head coach Robbie Caldwell believes there's some solid talent as he begins the process of locking down four new offensive line starters. Senior Joey Bailey, a guard-center in 2009, stepped forward in spring drills and claimed the center role. He also was elected offensive co-captain by teammates. Kyle Fischer is the team's most experienced lineman. A starter at guard last year, Fischer needs to develop into the standout coaches believe possible. He should start at one guard position. Several candidates are competing for the guard role across from Fischer, including Jabo Burrow, Mylon Brown and Chris Aaron. Aaron appeared to gain the upper hand last spring but has suffered multiple injuries that have limited his progress. Burrow switched from defensive tackle and has plenty of talent, yet lacks valuable experience and game snaps. Brown is a gifted, rangy redshirt freshman who could step forward to claim the role. Ryan Seymour is the most experienced tackle prospect. Despite missing the spring with an injury, Seymour is expected back at full strength and has the versatility to play either tackle or guard. The second most experiened tackle is redshirt sophomore Caleb Welchans. Redshirt freshman Wesley Johnson made a huge impression last spring and also should contend for a starting job. Another returnee, Justin Cabbagestalk should provide depth at guard. The lack of numbers may push a freshman into the mix. The signing class includes four offensive prospects: Andrew Bridges, Grant Ramsay, Logan Stewart and Chase White.

2010 Outlook

Reeves and Wesley Tate to develop into playmakers this season. Junior Ryan van Rensburg is the team's leading fullback. In 2009, Norman and Stacy rushed for 783 and 478 yards, respectively. Norman's total ranks No. 2 all-time among Commodore freshmen. Some long-time observers of the Commodores believe Norman and Stacy rank among the best tailback duos in team history.

2010 OUTLOOK

Team Outlook DEFENSIVE LINE The depth of Vanderbilt's tackle position might depend on the health of senior defensive co-captain Adam Smotherman, who enters preseason camp recuperating from a leg injury early in spring drills. When Smotherman is in uniform, the interior line adds a veteran leader and two-year starter. If Smotherman isn't ready, the position lacks experience once you get beyond junior T.J. Greenstone. The Commodores enter the season needing to replace three-year starting tackle Greg Billinger. A 23-game starter, Smotherman is coming off his finest season: 31 tackles and three tackles for loss. The senior also brings tremendous leadership to the Commodore defense. Greenstone is arguably the most active of the Commodore interior linemen, a Category........... TOTAL (SEC RANK) proven performer who has a tremendous Scoring Defense...................19.6 (6) motor. The junior, also elected co-captain Total Defense......................319.6 (8) by teammates after spring drills, had 38 Rushing Defense...............144.7 (10) tackles and two quarterback sacks in Passing Defense.................174.9 (3) 2009. Three redshirt sophomores – Rob Lohr, Colt Nichter and Taylor Loftley – should contend for playing time. If Smotherman is not 100 percent, Lohr is expected to start next to Greenstone. Both Nichter and Loftley are stronger against the run than they are pressuring the quarterback. A fourth sophomore, Josh Jelesky, also could be in the mix. The coaches might look to an incoming freshman to provide depth. The '10 signees include two interior line candidates, James Kittredge and Vince Taylor. The Commodores' newest coach, Mike Pelton, enters his first season with several defensive end prospects available to replace departed multi-year starters Steve Stone and Broderick Stewart. Three Commodores return with starting experience: Teriall Brannon, Tim Fugger and Theron Kadri. Fugger earned eight starts in 2009, collecting 21 total tackles and a pair of sacks. Kadri produced higher stat totals – 24 tackles and three QB sacks – sharing snaps with Fugger. Brannon also showed effectiveness, contributing 12 tackles. Any of three young end prospects – Johnell Thomas, Walker May and Thad McHaney – could claim a playing role next year with a strong preseason effort. Thomas was the team's fifth end last year, contributing six tackles and plenty of hustle to the unit. May's ability to rush off the edge was a highlight of spring drills.

'09 Defensive Stats

Chris Marve

LINEBACKERS Facing a void in leadership and production with the graduations of two-year starting 'backer Patrick Benoist and versatile Brent Trice, the Commodores are likely to restructure this corps around the talents of junior Chris Marve. Marve, the first SEC linebacker in a decade to surpass the 100-tackle plateau as a freshman and sophomore, earned All-SEC status in 2009 as the league's second leading tackler. The Butkus Award candidate, elected co-captain after spring practice, also has the versatility to play either the middle or weakside linebacking positions. Coming off a career-high 44 tackles in 2009, senior John Stokes returns at strongside linebacker, and is fully healthy for preseason camp for the first time in two years. Junior Nate Campbell, a two-year letterwinner, also returns after missing the entire 2009 season. Four sophomores are expected to contend for significant minutes this year: Tristan Strong, Archibald Barnes, Dexter Daniels and DeAndre Jones. Strong and Barnes were the most active in 2009, though Strong missed spring contact rehabilitating an injured knee. Blake Southerland will attempt to position himself on the two-deep at inside linebacker this spring. Former safety Micah Powell also is expected to receive repetitions at linebacker. Two signees, Chase Garnham and Fitz Lassing, will get a close look during preseason drills.

Team Outlook CORNERBACKS

Despite the graduation of NFL third round draft pick Myron Lewis, the Commodores possess both experienced playmakers and quality depth in their corps of defensive backs. The returnees are topped by Casey Hayward, a superb athlete who started every game in 2009. Hayward, who ranked fifth on the team in total tackles and contributed 8.5 tackles for loss and a pair of interceptions, has lock-down cover ability and All-SEC potential.

SAFETIES The Commodores return a top performer in junior strong safety Sean Richardson. Potentially one of the top secondary players in the SEC, Richardson accumulated 84 tackles in 10 starts last year, demonstrating punishing force as a tackler, willingness to play through pain, and an excellent understanding of the defensive scheme. Across from Richardson, the Commodores are inexperienced at free safety. The only player with collegiate experience is Al Owens, who should back up at the strong

Defensive Returnees

Jamie Graham

safety post. Two newcomers, Jay Fullam and Kenny Ladler, impressed during spring drills and enter camp expecting to compete for the free safety role. Fullam was likely to contribute in 2009, but suffered a serious hand injury that curtailed his performance. After arriving on campus in January, Ladler showed athleticism in the spring, and has benefited from a solid summer conditioning effort. The coaches are anticipating two freshmen signees, Karl Butler and Andre Simmons, to showcase their talents in preseason camp. Walk-ons Elvio Tropeano, Duane Vaughn and Kurt Lockhart also are available.

PLACEKICKER As a first-year starter in 2009, Ryan Fowler gave the Commodores accuracy and consistency in their kicking game, gaining confidence with each game played. Fowler finished the campaign as a freshman All-America and freshman All-SEC recipient, tying the team single-season record with 16 field goals. The coaches expect even more progress in Fowler's second year as a starter. The Commodore signing class also included a highly regarded kicking prospect, Carey Spear. A walk-on with prep soccer experience, Eric Freiman, showed some potential in spring drills.

Returning Specialists Ryan Fowler............PK........ So........1L David Giller..............SN........ Sr.........2L Richard Kent.............P......... So........1L

PUNTER For the first time in four years, the Commodores will be without the services of Brett Upson, who earned second team All-SEC honors as a senior in 2009. The coaches have penciled in Richard Kent as the starter. A two-year veteran of the squad, Kent impressed during spring drills with a powerful and accurate leg. Spear, Fowler and freshman Fitz Lassing are candidates to contend for the top reserve role.

RETURN SPECIALISTS The Commodores return an All-America candidate at returning kicks in Warren Norman. Two others, Trey Wilson and Jamie Graham, have collegiate experience. The coaches would be ecstatic if Norman duplicates his amazing 2009 season that included three returns for touchdowns and a 26.2-yard average on returns. Zac Stacy was erratic when inserted as punt returner in the finale at Tennessee. Despite the inconsistency, Stacy showed promise, including contributing a return of 26 yards, the team's longest of the year. Several others, including Graham, Wilson and John Cole, could get a look at the return role.

COACHES

Head Coach Robbie Caldwell

Robbie Caldwell, a three-decade veteran of the collegiate coaching ranks, became the 26th head coach in Vanderbilt gridiron history on July 14 when he was named by university officials to replace former Commodore mentor and close friend Bobby Johnson. Caldwell, a native of Pageland, S.C., has served on the Vanderbilt staff since accepting Johnson's offer prior to the 2002 season. Until becoming head coach, Caldwell was assistant head coach and offensive line mentor under Johnson. This marks the first head coaching position for Caldwell, whose ties with Bobby Johnson and several members of the Commodore staff date back to the mid-1970s. "I look forward to the challenge of guiding the Vanderbilt football program, and fully understand the task at hand," Caldwell said. "At the same time, I am truly excited about the opportunity to continue building this program just as Bobby Johnson did for the last eight years. "This staff knows each other, believes in each other, and believes in the players in this program. We'll will work diligently to win football games on the field and mold great citizens off the field. Bobby Johnson and I share those philosophies. Those goals will continue to be my goals as head coach of the

Vanderbilt Commodores," Caldwell added. During his career, Caldwell has coached in 11 postseason bowl games and has coached six conference-winning squads. Five of his pupils have earned All-America recognition; and seven has been picked in the NFL draft. The new Commodore head coach has coached some of the top offensive lineman in Vanderbilt history. Caldwell mentored the collegiate career of Chris Williams, who developed from a lanky freshman prospect into a top-caliber player during his five years on the Vanderbilt campus. Williams earned All-Southeastern Conference honors as a senior tackle in 2007 and started getting serious attention from professional scouts after a strong performance at the 2008 Senior Bowl. Three months later, Williams became the highest Vanderbilt offensive lineman ever taken in the NFL Draft when Chicago made him the No. 14 overall pick. He is expected to start this season for the Bears at left tackle, protecting the blindside of former Commodore signal caller Jay Cutler. This April, another Caldwell pupil, offensive tackle Thomas Welch, was selected in the seventh round by the New England Patriots. A third former Commodore lineman, Justin Geisinger, also played several years with NFL squads before leaving the game last year.

Like Johnson and other members of the current staff, Caldwell's football lineage passes through Furman University. His coaching style is influenced by two former Paladin head coaches, Art Baker and Dick Sheridan. As an undersized, overachieving center, Caldwell lettered three years at Furman playing for Baker. As a senior in 1975, he earned Furman's MVP Award as an offensive captain. The following year, he was Baker's graduate assistant at Furman. Two years later, he began an eight-year tenure as offensive line coach at Furman under Sheridan. During that period, the Paladins won six Southern Conference championships, with Caldwell mentoring eight first-team all-conference players and five recipients of the Jacobs Award given to the league's top offensive lineman. Caldwell was one of three current Vanderbilt offensive coaches that joined Sheridan when he became head coach at North Carolina State in 1986. Caldwell served 14 years with the Wolfpack, continuing seven years beyond Sheridan's stay on campus. At North Carolina State, Caldwell tutored the Wolfpack line for 11 years, then added assistant head coaching responsibilities from 1997-99. Fourteen of his North Carolina State pupils were All-Atlantic Coast Conference recipients. From 2000-01, Caldwell coached the University of North Carolina offensive line. The Tar Heels capped their 2001 season with a victory over Auburn in the Peach Bowl. Caldwell graduated with a B.S. degree in Health and Physical Education from Furman in 1976. Caldwell and his wife, Nora Lynn, are the parents of a daughter, Emsley, 15.

Close-Knit Coaching Staff COACHES

Johnson Retires July 14

The Staff Under Caldwell: Many Professional Ties Still Evident Despite Bobby Johnson’s recent retirement, the Commodore coaching staff remains a close-knit group, with numerous personal and professional relationships dating back three decades. Robbie Caldwell, Vanderbilt's newly named interim head coach, comes from the same coaching tree as his predecessor, and many of the other coaches on the current Commodores staff. In the mid-1970s, Caldwell was an offensive teammate at Furman with two current Vanderbilt coaches, offensive coordinator Jimmy Kiser and special teams coordinator Ted Cain. By 1976, Caldwell was coaching on the same Furman staff as Cain and Johnson. Two years later, Caldwell and Cain were coaching a young Furman walk-on named Bruce Fowler, the current Vanderbilt assistant head coach for defense. The Furman football program, with Dick Sheridan at the helm Teammates at Furman: and Caldwell, Cain and Fowler on Robbie Caldwell was a teammate at Furman with staff, enjoyed a revival into the current Vanderbilt coaches Ted Cain and Jimmy Kiser. 1980s, winning enough Southern

One of the top Wolfpack players during their tenure was all-conference defensive tackle Ricky Logo, the Commodores' current recruiting coordinator and defensive line mentor. After 14 years at N.C. State, Caldwell moved down Tobacco Road to Chapel Hill to become North Carolina’s offensive line coach. In 2001, Caldwell became impressed with the abilities of a Tar Heel defensive graduate assistant, Jamie Bryant, now the Commodores' defensive coordinator. Vanderbilt's newest addition to the staff, defensive ends coach Mike Pelton, was well known to Logo, having worked together for three years on the Troy defensive coaching staff.

Bobby Johnson, who earned national respect during an eight-year run that began in 2002, announced his retirement from collegiate coaching on July 14. Johnson's announcement was a surprise to all in the Vanderbilt Athletics program, including his coaching staff and support staff. His tenure at Vanderbilt was the longest by a Commodore head coach in nearly 50 years. Johnson's years were highlighted by the Commodores' 7-6 campaign in 2008 that ended with a 16-14 victory over Boston College in the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl. Johnson earned Southeastern Conference Coach of the Year honors with Nick Saban of Alabama and Houston Nutt of Ole Miss following the 2008 campaign. Though Johnson's overall record at Vanderbilt lacked distinction, SEC observers watched his Commodores pull off numerous impressive wins, and compete to the final seconds in virtually every performance. Between 2005-08, Johnson's teams won 21 games, the most by Vanderbilt in a four-year period since 1972-75. Johnson's Vanderbilt teams notched several unexpected SEC victories on the road. Under Johnson, the Commodores won at Arkansas and Tennessee in 2005, at Georgia in 2006, at South Carolina in 2007, and at Ole Miss and Kentucky in 2008. Johnson's teams also defeated five ranked opponents, including four on the road. The 2008 Vanderbilt team also gained plenty of national attention. The Commodores capped a 5-0 start to the season by defeating No. 13 Auburn 14-13 with ESPN's College Football GameDay airing from campus for the first time in program history. Johnson's players also enjoyed individual accolades. His notable pupils included Warren Norman and Kwane Doster, the only Commodore players to earn SEC Freshman of the Year honors, SEC Offensive Player of the Year Jay Cutler, and league receiving record holder Earl Bennett. Eleven of his standouts were picked in the NFL Draft, including first-round selections Cutler and offensive tackle Chris Williams. The Commodores also were academic achievers under Johnson. Twice, the Vanderbilt football program earned the AFCA's Academic Achievement Award as national leaders for graduation rates. In 2008, 38 Vanderbilt student-athletes earned All-SEC Academic Honor Roll recognition, the highest single season total in league history. All told, 221 Commodores reached SEC Academic Honor Roll status. One of his earliest Vanderbilt pupils, standout linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer, was an National Scholar Athlete recipient in 2002.

Jamie Bryant Jamie Bryant enters his second year as defensive coordinator. He also handles coaching duties for the Commodore defensive backs. In his first year as coordinator, the Commodores continued their solid defensive play. Despite several key injuries, including the loss of three-year starting safety Ryan Hamilton for 10 games, the unit ranked ninth nationally in pass defense and 46th nationally in scoring defense. Bryant, 40, was promoted to defensive coordinator after the Commodores' 2008 Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl victory. Now in his ninth year on the Vanderbilt staff, Bryant has also served the role of special teams coordinator. Two of Bryant's starters this season, safety Sean Richardson and cornerback Casey Hayward are ranked among the SEC's elite at their positions. Bryant has a number of former pupils currently on National Football League rosters. Two standouts from the 2009 squad, Hamilton and cornerback Myron Lewis, are with Philadelphia and Tampa Bay, respectively. Lewis, the third All-SEC selection mentored by Bryant, was a third round draft pick of the Bucs. Two other recent Commodores, former All-America defensive back D.J. Moore and safety Reshard Langford, are with Chicago and Kansas City, respectively. Bryant's 2008 starting corps of Moore, Lewis, Langford and Hamilton also own the distinction of each posting four interceptions or more that season. Prior to accepting the Commodore post, Bryant assisted at North Carolina in 2001 alongside current Vanderbilt interim head coach Robbie Caldwell. That year, an aggressive defense helped the Tar Heels finish strong, winning seven of their final nine regular season games, including impressive routs of ACC foes Florida State and Clemson, then defeating Auburn in the Peach Bowl. Prior to the UNC post, Bryant’s efforts as defensive coordinator and secondary coach improved a struggling defense at I-AA St. Francis (Pa.) University in 2000. Bryant entered the collegiate coaching ranks in 1997 as outside linebackers coach at Clarion. His duties at Clarion evolved to secondary coach and special teams coordinator for his final two seasons. A native of Fredericktown, Ohio, Bryant was a three-year letterwinner at Ohio Wesleyan. He earned a B.S. in Economics Management. Bryant and his wife, Elisa, are the parents of two sons, Luke and Jake.

Assistant Coaches COACHES

Ted Cain Tight Ends; Special Teams Coordinator Ted Cain has more than three decades of collegiate coaching experience, and served a two-year stint as the head coach at Virginia Military Institute. In December 2001, he became the first assistant on Bobby Johnson’s Vanderbilt staff. This season, the former Commodore offensive coordinator will serve as tight ends coach and special teams coordinator. Cain was offensive coordinator and tight ends coach for his first eight years at Vanderbilt. He switched responsibilities after the 2009 campaign following offensive struggles the previous two seasons. Despite moving to a no-huddle attack, the unit struggled with inconsistency, key injuries and limited playmaking ability at several positions. One of Cain's pupils at tight end, junior Brandon Barden, returns this season as the Commodores' active leader with 57 career receptions, including 27 catches as a sophomore. Barden and junior Austin Monahan, who missed five games to injury in 2009, provide Cain a solid nucleus at tight end. Cain’s tenure has produced some of the top offenses in team history. The 2005 squad led by SEC Offensive Player of the Year Jay Cutler produced more points and first downs than any Vanderbilt offense in the last three decades. In addition to the VMI head coaching position, Cain’s coaching resume includes a successful tenure as offensive coordinator at North Carolina State and many years of coaching service at Furman. Cain, 58, was a three-year tight end for Furman. After serving a two-year term as a U.S. Army second lieutenant, Cain began his coaching career as Furman’s linebackers coach in 1977. He later became the Furman passing game coordinator/receivers coach, helping the squad to a 69-23-2 mark over eight years. That success led to Cain’s move to North Carolina State in 1986. As offensive coordinator and tight ends coach, Cain directed seven of N.C. State’s top 10 passing seasons. Cain rejoined Johnson's staff at Furman in 1999, helping the Paladins to a pair of Southern Conference titles. Cain earned a B.S. degree in geology and a M.A. in education from Furman. Cain and his wife, Susan, are the parents of two children: Matt, 26, an assistant coach with Presbyterian (S.C.) College; and Erin, 24.

Assistant Coaches Charlie Fisher COACHES

Wide Receivers; Passing Game Coordinator In his ninth season at Vanderbilt, Charlie Fisher works with wide receivers and serves as passing game coordinator with the Commodore offense. The former Division II head coach also mentored the team’s running backs in 2002-03. In 2009, Fisher's youthful wide receiving corps struggled for much of the year. Entering the season with little game experience at the position, Fisher mentored first-year starters John Cole and Udom Umoh to solid seasons. This season, Fisher's corps also includes four true freshman recruits. In the past, Fisher has enjoyed productive seasons from freshman, including Earl Bennett, regarded as the greatest receiver in team history. As a freshman in 2005, Bennett set a SEC record with 79 receptions. By the end of his three-year career, Bennett amassed another SEC all-time mark with 236 career catches. In 2009, the record-breaking Bennett was a starter in the Chicago Bears receiving corps. Another former Fisher pupil, 2008 graduate Sean Walker, was on the St. Louis Rams' roster last year. As the Vanderbilt running backs coach in 2002, he mentored Kwane Doster to SEC Freshman of the Year honors. Before joining Vanderbilt, he served two years as offensive coordinator/quarterback coach at Temple. Prior to the Temple move, Fisher was successful during a two-year stint tutoring North Carolina State receivers, including likely NFL Hall of Famer Torry Holt. The Wolfpack passing attack led the ACC and helped spur the team's drive to a bowl berth. Fisher’s background includes a successful tenure as head coach at West Georgia prior to moving to North Carolina State. From 1993-97, Fisher guided the Braves to a 36-17 overall record. He also served as an offensive coach at LeniorRhyne (N.C.) College from 1985-1990. Fisher played quarterback and wide receiver from 1977-80 at Springfield (Mass.) College. He also lettered as a shortstop in baseball. He earned his B.S. in physical education. Fisher earned a M.A. in sports management from Eastern Kentucky in 1984. He has served as a grad assistant at both EKU and Ole Miss. Fisher and his wife, Julie, have two sons: Brian, 21; and Brett, 15.

Assistant Coaches COACHES

Bruce Fowler Assistant Head Coach/Defense; Linebackers Bruce Fowler starts his second year as Assistant Head Coach in charge of defense. He will also mentor Commodore linebackers this season. Prior to getting promoted to assistant head coach/defense, Fowler served seven years as defensive coordinator. Fowler's defensive staff has developed a unit that has ranked among the nation's elite in recent years. The 2008 defense was one of the best in recent team history, and a key factor behind Vanderbilt's 7-6 season and Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl win, ranking high in scoring defense, total defense and pass defense. Last year, the unit also ranked among the NCAA Top 50 in scoring defense and ninth in the nation in pass defense. The unit also has earned a reputation for being opportunistic, producing a positive turnover margin in 2008-09. Five former defenders during the Fowler tenure – Myron Lewis, D.J. Moore, Jonathan Goff, Jovan Haye and Hunter Hillenmeyer – have been selected in the NFL Draft. Moore and Hillenmeyer are with Chicago; Goff and Haye are starters for the New York Giants and Tennessee Titans, respectively. Three others, Ryan Hamilton, Curtis Gatewood and Reshard Langford, are currently on NFL rosters. Fowler served as Johnson’s defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Furman. Their relationship on the field dates to the 1970s when Johnson was Fowler’s position coach at Furman. Fowler served 16 seasons at Furman. After beginning as a graduate assistant in 1984, Fowler's responsibilities at Furman progressed throughout his tenure. The defense was critical to Furman's 30-9 success from 1999-2001, two conference titles, three I-AA playoff berths and a 2001 national runnerup finish. Fowler worked with the Furman secondary for six years prior to coaching Paladin linebackers. He mentored six all-conference performers, including All-Americans, Will Bouton and John Keith. He also served several years as an offensive assistant before moving to the defensive staff. Fowler earned two letters at Furman. He was a member of the Paladins’ first conference championship in 1978, started in the secondary in 1979, and played on Furman’s 1980 league champion team. He earned a B.S. and M.A. degree in physical education from the university. Fowler is married to the former Lindy Gilman. They are the parents of a son, Jake, 15, and daughter, Madison, 13.

Jimmy Kiser Jimmy Kiser enters his first year as offensive coordinator during a nine-year tenure at Vanderbilt. He also will continue to mentor Commodore quarterbacks. For the last three years, Kiser has served as co-passing game coordinator for the Commodore attack. In 2009, the quarterback duo of Larry Smith and Mackenzi Adams were affected by injuries and inconsistent play. Several position groupings also were hurt by injury losses. Kiser earned widespread acclaim for mentoring quarterback Jay Cutler, the 2005 SEC Offensive Player of the Year who virtually rewrote the Commodore record books. Kiser coached Cutler for four consecutive seasons, developing the strong-armed prospect into a top National Football League prospect. By the time he graduated, Cutler ranked among the top quarterbacks in SEC history and owned nearly all of the team's passing marks. Eventually, Cutler was selected in the first round, the No. 11 overall pick, of the 2006 NFL Draft. Kiser started his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Furman. After coaching three years at Dunwoody (Ga.) H.S., Kiser worked two years at Lenoir-Rhyne (N.C.) College, serving as offensive coordinator. In 1986, Kiser joined the North Carolina State staff. He served the Wolfpack as receivers coach (1986-95), quarterbacks/receivers coach (1996) and offensive coordinator (1997-99). Under Kiser in 1997, the North Carolina State led the Atlantic Coast Conference in rushing offense and finished second in total offense, then topped the league in total offense the following year. In 2000, Kiser moved to Memphis where he coached quarterbacks. In 2001, he served as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Richmond. Kiser won four varsity letters as a wide receiver at Furman, graduating in 1979. He was named honorable mention all-conference as a senior. He earned a B.A. in Economics and Business Administration, graduating cum laude. In 1982, Kiser earned a MBA from the Clemson/Furman joint postgraduate program. Kiser and his wife, LeAnn, are the parents of four girls: Anna Baugher, 23, Jodi, 21, Jamie, 19, and Kelly, 9.

He briefly accepted a position at Western Michigan prior to taking the Vanderbilt role. In 2009, Kitchings did a splendid job mentoring true freshman tailbacks Warren Norman and Zac Stacy after senior Jared Hawkins missed much of the year with an injury. Norman and Stacy ranked 1-2 on the team in rushing, with Norman producing one of the finest all-purpose campaigns ever by an SEC freshman. He ended the season as the SEC Freshman of the Year and a freshman All-American. Kitchings also enjoyed success as an offensive coach at Furman. Serving as tight ends coach and special teams coordinator at Furman, he helped mentor three Paladins to all-conference recognition: Larry Hedden, Willis Sudderth and John Rust. During his tenure at Furman, the Paladins went 10-3 and captured a conference title in 2004, and advanced to the NCAA I-AA national semifinals in 2005. Kitchings was a standout receiver/return specialist at Furman. As a senior in 1999, Kitchings helped Furman win the first of three conference championships under Johnson. He ranks among the school’s all-time leaders in receptions and returns. As a specialist, he averaged a SoCon record 29.3 yards on 33 kickoff returns, four of which went for touchdowns – also a school record. A consensus all-Southern Conference selection as both a receiver and returner, Kitchings earned All-America honors as a return specialist in 1999 after leading the NCAA I-AA division in return average. Kitchings was selected by Kansas City in the 2000 NFL Draft, and spent four years on practice squads and rosters of NFL squads. Kitchings completed a Health and Exercise Science degree at Furman in 2000. Kitchings and his wife, Heather, are the parents of son, Aiden Jacob, 4; and daughter, Ava Marie, 2.

Rick Logo

COACHES

Defensive Tackles; Recruiting Coordinator Rick Logo is entering his fourth year as a Commodore defensive line coach. He added duties as special teams' co-coordinator after the 2009 season. In 2009, Logo mentored tackle Greg Billinger to his finest year in a Vanderbilt uniform. Billinger established single-season bests in virtually every statistical category. Two other tackles, Adam Smotherman and All-SEC freshman T.J. Greenstone, also performed admirably. In 2008, starting ends Broderick Stewart and Steven Stone shared the team lead with five quarterback sacks and were extremely productive. Two of Logo's pupils from the 2007 season, Curtis Gatewood and Theo Horrocks, signed NFL free agent deals. Gatewood is currently with the Detroit Lions. Logo came to Vanderbilt from Troy University where he served as co-defensive coordinator. Logo also coached Troy’s defensive line from 2002-2004, and mentored two current standouts in the NFL, Osi Umenyiora of the New York Giants and Demarcus Ware of Dallas. He joined Troy after one year at Western Carolina where he served as assistant head coach and line coach. Before that, he worked as a defensive assistant at Chattanooga. A native of Santa Ana, Calif., Logo played four seasons as a defensive tackle at North Carolina State from 1989-92. That Wolfpack staff guided by Dick Sheridan included current Vanderbilt coaches Robbie Caldwell, Ted Cain and Jimmy Kiser. During Logo’s four seasons at N.C. State, the Wolfpack had a combined record of 32-16-1, playing in four consecutive bowls. He was a team captain during his senior season and earned All-ACC honors in 1992. That same season, he was named third-team All-America, and played in the postseason Japan and Hula bowls. After graduating in 1992 with a B.A. in sociology, Logo signed a contract with Detroit, but suffered a career-ending injury as a rookie. Logo is a graduate of Spencer (Ga.) H.S., where he was a standout in football, wrestling and track and field. Logo is married to the former Folole Falefia. They are the parents of a son, Eliah, 3.

Mike Pelton Defensive Ends

COACHES

Mike Pelton is Vanderbilt's newest coach, getting tabbed as the team's defensive ends coach in March. He replaces former linebacker mentor Warren Belin, who left to accept another collegiate post. Pelton, 38, arrived on campus to work with the defensive line during the Commodore spring drills. A native of Alabama, Pelton’s most recent stint in college football – a two-year tenure as defensive line coach at Iowa State – ended in 2008 when Iowa State head coach Gene Chizic accepted the Auburn position. “I believe Mike is going to be a fantastic addition to our defensive staff. He demonstrated that in spring practice,” former head coach Bobby Johnson said. “Mike has shown impressive knowledge and has worked effectively with staff members previously. He’s going to be a tremendous asset." Pelton and current Commodore line coach Rick Logo worked together as defensive assistants at Troy, sharing defensive line responsibilities under Larry Blakeney. In 2005, Logo’s final year on the Troy staff, Pelton and Logo were co-defensive coordinators for the Trojans. At Iowa State, Pelton’s defensive lines were an area of strong improvement during the Chizic Era. Pelton mentored a pair of second team All-Big 12 selections at Iowa State: nose guard Ahtyba Rubin and defensive end Kurtis Taylor. Rubin just finished his second year as a starter for the Cleveland Browns after being selected in the sixth round of the 2008 NFL draft. Pelton went to Chizic’s staff at Iowa State after serving six years on the staff at Troy, including the final two years at co-defensive coordinator. The Troy defense was consistently among the nation’s leaders in several categories. In 2002, the Trojans ranked fourth nationally, allowing just 277 total yards per game. In 2004, the Trojans ranked 16th in total defense. Together, Pelton and Logo worked with two of the finest defensive linemen in Troy history, Demarcus Ware and Osi Umenyiora. Ware just finished his fifth year as an All-Pro linebacker with Dallas. Umenyiora is a two-time Pro Bowl defensive end for the New York Giants. Prior to going to Troy, Pelton coached the defensive line at Valdosta State (Ga.) University in 2000. The Blazers posted a 10-2 record and made the NCAA Division II playoffs. As a player, Pelton was a standout defensive tackle at Auburn, earning first team All-SEC recognition in 1994. He was also a senior co-captain. Pelton and his wife, Staci, are the parents of three daughters: Myesa, 13; Tyra, 10; and Peyton, 6 months.

Strength Coaches

John Sisk An 18-year coaching veteran, John Sisk enters his ninth year as Vanderbilt's Director of Speed, Strength and Conditioning. Sisk plays a vital role with the Commodore football program, developing prospects who can compete effectively in the nation's premier football conference while directing the team's conditioning effort. Sisk and his strength staff have enjoyed plenty of success. The 2008 Commodores that captured the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl, due in large part to their superb fitness level, outscored their opponents 127-81 after halftime. Sisk's aim is to be build stronger players, who in turn who can translate the added strength to the gridiron. Much of Sisk's offseason conditioning routine is aimed at enhancing individual physical traits important to the football field. “John makes guys better football players, and he also works well with each student-athlete on a personal and physical level,” former head coach Bobby Johnson said. Sisk's pupils also witness huge results in the weightroom. Since arriving on campus, nearly 100 different Commodore players have bench pressed at least 400 pounds, including nine on the current roster.

Since 2002, 12 former Commodores that came through Sisk's program remain in the National Football League. Seven former standouts have been taken in the NFL draft since 2006, including first-rounders Cutler and Williams, who went from an undersized 245-pound prospect on his arrival at Vanderbilt to the No. 14 pick overall in the 2008 draft. Sisk has also worked with four Commodore baseball players selected as first-round picks by Major League Baseball: 2007 No. 1 pick David Price, 2008 No. 2 selection Pedro Alvarez, pitcher Casey Weathers and pitcher Mike Minor. The relationship between Sisk and Johnson dates to 1994, when Sisk was a Furman strength assistant in Johnson’s first year as coach. Sisk joined Vanderbilt after working at Clemson where he was responsible for the conditioning of skilled-position athletes. Sisk played football at Western Carolina. After spending three years as a football/strength coach at Tuscola H.S., he joined Furman in 1993. He was named to guide the Western Carolina conditioning program in 1995. He joined Clemson In 1997.

Vanderbilt Stadium, Nashville (36,530) • Sept. 5, 2009 • CSS

NASHVILLE – Warren Norman ran for 105 yards and two touchdowns to lead Vanderbilt to a 45-0 victory over Western Carolina. Norman, a freshman tailback, scored on runs of 2 and 9 yards. Fellow freshman running back Zac Stacy rushed for 133 yards on 20 attempts. Norman and Stacy are the first freshmen in Vanderbilt history to run for more than 100 yards in the same game. It was the first time any two Commodore runners gained more than 100 yards in the same game since September 21, 2002, when Kwane Doster and Norval McKenzie did it in a loss to Ole Miss. Larry Smith completed 10 of 18 passes for 153 yards and one touchdown. Smith found

Vanderbilt (9) at #11 LSU (23)

Tiger Stadium, Baton Rouge, La. (91,566) • Sept. 12, 2009 • ESPNU BATON ROUGE, La. – LSU needed Keiland Williams' late touchdown to put away Vanderbilt, 23-9 on a rain-soaked Saturday night, marking the second night this year that the 11th-ranked Tigers allowed an underdog to contend for the victory. The Commodores (1-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) trailed by only one touchdown midway through the fourth quarter as they attempted to win in Tiger Stadium for the first time since 1951. LSU (2-0, 1-0) made it a two-touchdown game with 6:01 to go after Williams' second score. He slipped a tackle at the line of scrimmage, cut back, then faked a defender to the ground before hurdling over him and into the end zone for a 14-yard TD. Williams finished with 72 yards rushing and was the only LSU player to get into the end zone. Larry Smith scored Vanderbilt's only touchdown on a 6-yard quarterback keeper in the first half that knotted the score 7-7. Freshman Zac Stacy rushed for 89 yards.

2009 Review

NASHVILLE – Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen won his first game in the Southeastern Conference and didn't care much what it looked like. Tyson Lee ran 22 yards for a touchdown to seal a 15-3 victory Saturday against Vanderbilt for Mississippi State's first-year coach. Sean Brauchle made three field goals for the Bulldogs, the longest from 49 yards, and Anthony Dixon rushed for 123 yards on 21 carries. Christian Ducre had 62 rushing yards on nine carries, and quarterback Chris Relf added 44 yards on nine attempts as the Bulldogs (2-1, 1-1 Southeastern) gained 259 of their 340 yards on the ground. Vanderbilt (1-2, 0-2) scored after defensive end Tim Fugger recovered a fumble at Mississippi State's 6. The Commodores gained three yards on three runs before Ryan Fowler kicked a 20-yard field goal to tie it in the second quarter. While the Commodore defense allowed Mississippi State just two thirddown conversions on 15 attempts, the offense struggled, gaining just 157 total yards, including only 33 rushing yards on 29 carries.

2009 review

Vanderbilt Stadium, Nashville (39,625) • Oct. 3, 2009 • ESPNU NASHVILLE – One week after producing 36 points in a win at Rice, the Commodore offense offered little competition against Ole Miss as Vanderbilt fell to 2-3 with a 23-7 loss to the No. 21 Rebels. Ole Miss quarterback Jevan Snead passed for three touchdowns to overcome three interceptions as the Rebels bounced back from a loss to South Carolina to go 3-1 overall. Snead matched his season high with three TDs against Vanderbilt in helping the Rebels to their best start since 2002 when they opened 5-1. One year earlier, the Commodores picked off four Snead passes in route to a win in Oxford. The Commodores fell to 2-3 overall and 0-2 in

Game 5

Southeastern Conference play. Commodore defenders Jamie Graham, Casey Hayward and Myron Lewis each intercepted a Snead pass, but the Vanderbilt offense totalled just 240 yards, and mustered just a lone score midway in the third quarter. A late Commodore threat ended when Ole Miss' Marcus Temple intercepted Larry Smith in the end zone to help preserve a 23-7 lead. The Commodore attack was topped by Warren Norman's 86 rushing yards.

Vanderbilt (13) at Army (16) OT

Michie Stadium, West Point, N.Y. (34,357) • Oct. 10, 2009 • CSTV WEST POINT, N.Y. – Alex Carlton kicked a 42-yard field goal in overtime, giving Army a 16-13 upset victory over Vanderbilt in Michie Stadium overlooking the Hudson River. With the win, the Black Knights' matched their victory total from each of the last three seasons. It marked a second straight disappointing loss for the Commodores, who went down to defeat despite a tremendous individual performance by freshman Warren Norman, who had 62 yards rushing and 104 yards in kickoff returns, including a 76-yarder for a score. The field goal, which hit the left upright, was Carlton's third of the game. He also kicked a 51-yarder in the second quarter, Army's longest field goal since 1994. Vanderbilt (2-4) forced the game into overtime when Ryan Fowler hit a 41-yard field goal with less than 52 seconds remaining for a 13-13 tie. Fowler's field goal also hit off the left upright before going through. Quarterback Larry Smith went 4-for-7 for 79 yards on that drive. Smith finished 11-for-24 with 144 yards and two interceptions.

Vanderbilt (10) at # 24 So. Carolina (14)

Williams-Brice Stadium, Columbia, SC (75,624) • Oct. 24, 2009 •ESPNU

NASHVILLE – Joe Cox threw two touchdown passes, including one to Caleb King who scored twice, and Georgia beat Vanderbilt 34-10 on Saturday to snap a two-game skid. Cox started slowly, missing on his first four passes with one interception. The senior got going with a short toss out to the league's top receiver, and A.J. Green took it 65 yards untouched for a TD in the first as the Bulldogs never trailed. Georgia outgained Vanderbilt 399-296 on offense. It wasn't enough as the Commodores lost their third straight. They got within the Georgia 28 twice in the first half and had to settle for a 41-yard field goal from Ryan Fowler while turning it over on downs on the other drive. Smith was 11 of 26 for 121 yards. Playing in relief, Adams hit on 6 of 8 passes for 53 yards. Freshman Warren Norman paced the Commodore rushing attack with 52 yards.

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Warren Norman had a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and Vanderbilt carried a 10-7 lead into the fourth quarter, but could not hold on as No. 24 South Carolina used a 99-yard touchdown drive to defeat the Commodores 14-10 Saturday night at Williams-Brice Stadium. The Commodores were hurt by a missed interception by safety Joel Caldwell late in the game that would have ended the Gamecock scoring threat. The winning score was controversial, as a replay ruled that USC receiver Alshon Jeffery had a foot inbounds that resulted in a game-deciding, 43-yard touchdown catch in the fourth-quarter. The reception provided the Gamecocks (6-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) the winning margin over Vanderbilt and broke a two-game losing streak to the Commodores (2-6, 0-5). The Commodores got the ball one last time with 4:00 left and drove to South Carolina's 25. However, Commodore quarterback Larry Smith was called for intentional grounding on third down, then did not get close to the necessary yardage on fourth-and-32. Smith was 16 of 33 for 132 yards. Besides his 99-yard touchdown return, Norman also contributed 83 rushing yards for the Commodores. Norman also became the first Commodore to ever return two kickoffs for scores.

Vanderbilt Stadium, Nashville (30,262) • Oct. 31, 2009 • CSS

NASHVILLE – Josh Nesbitt ran for two touchdowns and threw for two scores, Jonathan Dwyer ran for a career-high 186 yards rushing with three TDs, and No. 12 Georgia Tech rallied to beat Vanderbilt 56-31. Despite losing their fifth consecutive game, the Commodores gave Georgia Tech fits for much of the game. After a 23-yard field goal by Ryan Fowler, Vanderbilt held a 31-28 margin midway through the third quarter before Tech scored 28 unanswered points to close the game. Three of Georgia Tech's deciding touchdowns came in a 3:40 span. The Yellow Jackets (8-1) rolled up a season-high 597 yards total offense. Warren Norman tied an SEC record with his third kickoff return for a touchdown: an 80-yarder late in the second quarter.

Vanderbilt (3) at #1 Florida (27)

Hill Griffin Stadium, Gainesville, Fla. (90,684) • Nov. 7, 2009 • ESPN2 GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Quarterback Tim Tebow accounted for two touchdowns -- one of them on a tipped pass -- Caleb Sturgis kicked two field goals and the Gators beat the Commodores 27-3 at The Swamp. Vanderbilt lost for the seventh straight week. The Commodore defense played well against Heisman candidate Tebow, who directed the Gators to 375 total yards, with many coming in the game. Tebow played virtually the entire way for the Gators. The Commodores' season-long pattern of little offensive production continued against Florida, with Vanderbilt totalling just 199

yards. Vanderbilt quarterback Mackenzi Adams was 13 of 29 for 100 yards, with an interception. Adams threw quick passes to avoid the Florida pass rush. The lone Commodore points came on a 32-yard field goal by freshman Ryan Fowler midway through the third quarter. Vanderbilt struggled to defend Tebow's top target, tight end Aaron Hernandez, who caught seven passes for 120 yards.

Neyland Stadium, Knoxville (100,124) • Nov. 21, 2009 • ESPNU KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The Volunteers notched their third consecutive victory over the in-state Commodores 31-16 after jumping out to a 14-point margin at halftime. With the score tied 10-10 after one quarter, the Vols (6-5, 3-4 Southeastern Conference) became bowl eligible with a pair of Jonathan Compton touchdown passes in the second quarter. Late in the game, after two Ryan Fowler field goals narrowed the Tennessee margin to 24-16, the Commodores failed to score on three fourth quarter possessions, then watched a deflected Mackenzi Adams pass returned for a last-second touchdown. The Commodores (2-10, 0-8) finished without a conference win for the first time since 2002. Adams hit on 19 of 35 passes for 174 and a touchdown. Warren Norman was the top Commodore rusher with 73 yards. Tight end Brandon Barden contributed five receptions for the Commodores.

career-high 144 yards and a touchdown, and Kentucky beat Vanderbilt 24-13 to become bowl eligible for the fourth straight year. Kentucky (6-4, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) has won seven of the past nine in this series. For the Commodores (2-9, 0-7) it was another disappointing performance in a year of struggles. The Commodores posted their best scoring total against an SEC opponent, but failed to maintain a 13-10 lead at intermission. In going without points through the second half, the Commodores managed only 31 offen-

Moore became the first Commodore defensive back to earn All-America honors in 25 years. He earned second team recognition from the Associated Press, Sporting News, SI.com and Rivals.com after a sensational junior season. Moore registered six interceptions and 58 total tackles, contributing to the Commodores' 7-6 campaign that ended with a victory over Boston College at the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl. He ended his career tied for second among Commodores with 13 career interceptions. In 2008, he was the SEC's most versatile player, also seeing action as a running back, wide receiver and return specialist. Moore's talents were apparent in several Commodore wins. In a late-season win at Kentucky, he achieved a truly rare feat with a 2-interception, 2-TD catch effort. After three years, Moore entered the NFL draft. He was selected in the fourth round by the Bears.

Bennett concluded his career as the SEC's alltime leading receiver. As a sophomore in 2006, the product of Birmingham, Ala., was named third-team All-America by Rivals. com in 2006 after catching 82 passes in the regular season. When he announced intentions to enter the NFL draft, Bennett departed with 236 career receptions, 28 more than any other SEC receiver. Besides the receptions record, Bennett ranks among the team leaders in virtually every receiving category. In 2007, Bennett caught 75 passes, becoming the only receiver in SEC history to post three straight seasons with at least 75 catches. Bennett was a threetime All-SEC recipient. Many fans remember Bennett and Jay Cutler connecting on many memorable plays in the 2005 season, including the game-winning touchdown to defeat Tennessee in Knoxville. Bennett was selected by Chicago in the third round of the 2008 draft.

Winborn was named All-America by Football News following the 1999 season after leading the Commodores and the SEC with 141 tackles. It was the second straight year that Winborn led the league in tackles. A two-time All-SEC Coaches selection, Winborn was the complete linebacker package in 1999. He was a run stopper who delivered punishing blows, but he also had the agility to make plays sideline to sideline. He led the squad with a team-record 23 tackles for loss and was third in sacks with 5.5. His performance included a 20-tackle, two-sack effort against South Carolina. Winborn finished his Commodore career with 377 total tackles, 45 tackles for loss, 16.5 QB sacks and six forced fumbles. Winborn topped the squad in solo tackles for for three consecutive years.

In 1997, he became the only Commodore player to ean SEC Defensive Player of the Year honors from the Associated Press. He also received similar recognition from the Mobile Press Register. As a junior, Duncan amassed 152 tackles, six sacks, 14 tackles for loss and five forced fumbles. He finished his career with 425 tackles. His performance against top ranked Florida remains one of the best ever by a Commodore. Duncan's career included stops with Bucs, Rams and Falcons.

Marinangel was eamed First Team All-America by the Sporting News in 1996 after topping the NCAA with a 46.6-yard average. 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 46.6yard average is the second highest singleseason 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 All-America 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.

Scott followed up that performance by achieving 54 receptions and eight TD catches in '84. As a sophomore in 1982, Scott contributed 21 receptions in the Commodores' Hall of Fame Bowl campaign.

Scott also ranks sixth all-time with 145 catches and fifth with 2,219 receiving yards. Scott played three seasons in the NFL – with the Rams in 1985 and 1986, and Dallas in 1987.

Arnold became the first Vanderbilt kicking specialist to receive All-America honors, paving the way for several kicking standouts to follow in his footsteps. A native of Dalton, Ga., Arnold quickly impacted the squad, breaking the freshman mark with a 41.9-yard average. By the time he graduated, his coach, George McIntyre, was quoted as saying, "Jim’s the best kicker in the country, pro or college." As a senior in 1982, he was named to six All-America teams after averaging a then-record 45.8-yard average. He ended his career with a 43.9-yard average, and still holds the SEC mark with 277 punts. Arnold's senior average remains third all-time by a 'Dore and fifth all-time by a SEC punter. Two of Arnold’s punts remain among the 10 longest in Commodore history, including a 79-yarder at Ole Miss. After Vanderbilt, Arnold took his game to the NFL, enjoying an 11-year pro career.

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.

W.E. METZGER GUARD, 1910 Nicknamed “Frog,” Metzger was Dan McGugin's first great lineman, earning Third Team All-America 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.

OWSLEY MANIER BACK, 1906 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 the Commodores' 24-1 overall record. Eventually, Manier returned to academia, and became professor emeritus of clinical medicine at the Vanderbilt School of Medicine.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Still hurting from a dislocated shoulder 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.

Boston College 14 • Vanderbilt 16

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 the Commodores, Air Force walked away the winner 36-28 after a remarkable fourth quarter 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 fouryarder 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 touchdowns, 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.

THE UNIVERSITY

VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY

Vanderbilt, founded 137 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. Since its inception, the university has taken great pride in the quality of education – and the 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. Whichever school they enroll in, students receive a valuable and versatile education and are an integral part of the University’s community of scholars. Members of the 6,790-member undergraduate student body, including Vanderbilt student-athletes, are outstanding academic achievers and active participants in Vanderbilt’s 350-plus extracurricular organizations. They are also part of the most diversity ever at Vanderbilt as the university continues to attract students from many ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, geographic and religious backgrounds. 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 internships, off-campus study and accelerated degree programs. Through the Honor Code, student-directed service opportunities and campus programs, Vanderbilt students also consider moral and ethical issues and put the many facets of their lives into a personal framework of values. At Vanderbilt, the big material resources are in place – beautiful grounds and buildings, well-equipped class-

128

rooms and labs, various options for housing and ample athletic and recreational facilities. Off campus, undergraduates have all the urban conveniences offered by one of America’s foremost cities, Nashville. The city, located on the banks of Cumberland River, possesses a rare blend of big-city amenities and small-town charm with a collection of cultural activities unmatched in the region. 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, choosing between a public policy lecture or athletic event, or having dinner at a professor’s home. The University’s student body has been coeducational since 1875. The original campus, which opened on 75 acres, expanded to 330 acres in 1979 when Vanderbilt merged with neighboring George Peabody College for Teachers. Vanderbilt offers four undergraduate colleges: the College of Arts and Science; the Peabody College; the School of Engineering; and the Blair School of Music.

The Commons

First-Year Students Enjoy Rare Collegiate Living Experience In September 2008, a national television audience enjoyed an up-close look at The Commons when ESPN used the venue to broadcast their first College GameDay show from the campus. Besides discovering that The Commons makes an ideal set location for ESPN, the nation also learned that the modern, six-acre complex is one of the truly unique on-campus collegiate living environments. Built in the southeast quadrant of the Vanderbilt campus, The Commons includes 10 residence halls, or "houses," spacious study and social areas, and the showpiece Commons Center, a modern dining and activity hub, all located on the Peabody campus. It opened to first-year students in 2008. Vanderbilt officials believe The Commons provides new students with a truly special living/ learning experience. Bringing scholars, leaders, teachers and students together to create a vibrant intellectual community is at the heart of The Commons mission. The Commons Center also features the Eatery, the place to dine with friends and study with classmates. At the Commons Cafe, students, faculty and staff can develop friendships while listening to local musicians.

Vanderbilt alumni are having a positive impact on the nation. Many of Vanderbilt's 116,000 alumni are leaders in their chosen fields, including sports, business, engineering, science and medicine, public service, arts and entertainment, and education. In sports, our alums are more abundant than ever: former Vanderbilt student newspaper ace Buster Olney is ESPN's top baseball analyst; Arthur Hancock is a leading breeder of Kentucky Derby-caliber thoroughbreds; former No. 1 pick David Price is one of best young Major League Baseball talents; and quarterback Jay Cutler is the most prominent of 14 former Commodores playing in the NFL. From the halls of Congress, Lamar Alexander is one of the nation's most effective leaders as Tennessee's senior senator. Suspense enthusiasts gobble up James Patterson's newest thriller. Economist and Novel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus is taking his community-based Grameen Bank concept across the globe from Bangladesh. And in business and technology, Dr. Thomas Frist Jr., Cal Turner Jr., John Rich, Bill Samuels Jr., and John Ingram are just a few of many alums regarded as leaders of industry and commerce.

CHANCELLOR ZEPPOS Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos was raised in Milwaukee, where he spent many an afternoon watching the great Hank Aaron of the Braves slug home runs in the old County Stadium. 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?’” A distinguished legal scholar, teacher and executive, Zeppos served from 2002 to February 2008 as Vanderbilt's chief academic officer, overseeing the university's undergraduate, graduate and professional education programs and research in liberal arts and sciences, engineering, music, education, business, law, and divinity. As provost and vice chancellor, he chaired Vanderbilt's budgeting and capital planning council, as well as oversaw the dean of students and dean of admissions. Zeppos has led a number of important initiatives at Vanderbilt, including the planning process for The Commons, a landmark transformation of the first-year experience; the Strategic Academic Planning Group; innovative efforts in undergraduate admissions and financial aid; and the development of new programs in Jewish studies, law and economics, and genetics, among others. In a bold move to strengthen Vanderbilt’s commitment to admitting undergraduates on the basis of accomplishment and achievement, rather than their ability to pay, in 2009, Zeppos created an expanded financial aid program. By replacing undergraduate need-based loans with grant and scholarship assistance, this transformative initiative opened the university’s 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 and the university’s Shape the Future fundraising campaign,

which under Zeppos’ leadership exceeded its $1.25 billion goal two years ahead of schedule and set a new target of $1.75 billion by 2011. 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. He also served as interim chancellor for eight months prior to being formally appointed as Vanderbilt's eighth chancellor on March 1, 2008. He is a member of the 2010-11 executive committee of the Southeastern Conference. In the Nashville community, Zeppos serves on the boards of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Nashville Alliance for Public Education. From 1982 to 1987, Zeppos practiced law in Washington, D.C., at the United States Department of Justice and at Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering, where he specialized in appellate litigation involving complex regulatory, statutory and constitutional matters. Zeppos is a 1979 magna cum laude graduate of the University of Wisconsin Law School, where he served as editor in chief of the Wisconsin Law Review and was selected as the outstanding graduate of his class. He studied history during his undergraduate years at the university, where he was a 1976 Phi Beta Kappa graduate. He is married to Lydia A. Howarth, a graduate of the University of Chicago and Lawrence University, who is an editor. They have two sons, Benjamin and Nicholas.

Prior to kickoff for the Commodore home opener, Chancellor Zeppos has the responsibility of leading the Freshman Run. The entire class of first-year students follows the chancellor across Dudley Field as they head to the Vanderbilt Stadium student section.

THE UNIVERSITY

Few Commodores enjoy Vanderbilt Athletics' successes more than Vice Chancellor David Williams II. Whether supporting coaches and studentathletes, presiding over important athletic activities, or debating strategic policy changes in Commodore athletics, Williams plays a key leadership role in the administration of Vanderbilt Athletics. For the last seven years, Williams has guided Vanderbilt Athletics into a bold new direction while serving as Vice Chancellor for University Affairs and Athletics. Under Williams, the Vanderbilt program has many successes on and off the field of competition. Williams has directed an initiative to more fully integrate Commodore athletics into the total Vanderbilt student life experience. Today, Williams’ efforts have placed the Vanderbilt program among the most innovative in the nation. Since sweeping changes were initiated in 2003, Williams has firmly placed his stamp on the program. He has overseen the recruitment and hiring of seven outstanding head coaches. His tenure has witnessed substantial improvement in academic performance by Vanderbilt student-athletes. Williams also has addressed numerous facility upgrades, including an extensive refurbishing of Vanderbilt Stadium, expansion of Hawkins Field, addition of new tennis courts and amenities at Brownlee O. Currey Center, and renovations in Memorial Gym. Under Williams, Vanderbilt Athletics have prospered. Since 2006-07, at least eight sports have participated in postseason action each year. Eight Vanderbilt athletes have been selected in the first round of their respective sports in the last five years. Off the field, student-athletes’ collective GPA has reached its highest level in more than a decade. In addition, numerous teams and student-athletes have engaged in overseas travel. Athletics is but a small part of Williams’ influential Vanderbilt role. Williams also serves as General Counsel directing a staff of 14 attorneys and Secretary of Vanderbilt and its nationally recognized Medical Center. In addition, he oversees the Office of Risk Management, Compliance and Conflict of Interest functions, and the operations of the Vanderbilt University Board of Trust. Williams’ campus participation also includes a tenured full professorship at the School of Law, lecturing on Tax Law, Sports Law and Education Law. He has taught a course on Law and Higher Education at Peabody College, and from time to time, courses in the undergraduate curriculum. Williams has reached outside of the Vanderbilt community in the area of intercollegiate sports. Williams served as a member of the SEC team that negotiated the recent SEC/ESPN/CBS contract, and is beginning a three-year term on the NCAA Division I Academic Cabinet. He also serves as a member of the NCAA Infraction Appeals Committee. Williams was named Vice Chancellor, General Counsel and Secretary of Vanderbilt in 2000. His role moved toward administration of Vanderbilt student affairs and athletics in 2002.

VANDERBILT STADIUM

Vanderbilt Stadium Home Since 1981 All of the Commodores' home games will be played in Vanderbilt Stadium, their on-campus venue for the last 29 years. The stadium, with a capacity of 39,773, 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 surface. In recent years, the stadium has been given an exterior renovation. An expansion concourse, two gate entrances and a plaza outside Gate 2 were introduced in 2009, one year after crews began an exterior paint and brick effort to unity the three largest athletic facilities on campus: Vanderbilt Stadium, Hawkins Field and Memorial Gymnasium. In addition, an on-going building project calls for an thorough refurblishing of Gate 1 near the Marriott Vanderbilt. The Dudley Field playing surface has been natural grass since 1999.
