James Franklin takes the helm of Vanderbilt Football


James Franklin: 'Why Not Vanderbilt' "We have very high standards and goals at Vanderbilt. We also have expectations of who we can be and what we can accomplish. We are not going to allow anyone to tell us any different!

Practice like a Players' Quotes:

"Instead of others asking why, I want to ask, "Why not. Why not Vanderbilt?" This university has everything in place to succeed: a great city, one of finest academic institutions in the nation and the greatest football conference. My message is the time is now."

Champion

"It's just a different mindset. And the message and reinforcement you get is upbeat and positive."

Chris Marve Sr., linebacker

"As a team, we're grown a lot closer, no question. We've become a lot more like a family. There's just a lot more invested by everyone."

Colt Nichter

Jr., defensive tackle "The whole mentality is different. We're all buying into the system. There's been a different level of focus and concentration."

Summer Workouts Prove Beneficial to Squad Virtually the entire Commodore roster has been on campus this summer joining in the team's rigorous offseason conditioning. For most of June, Director of Performance Enhancement Dwight Galt and his staff pushed nearly 90 team members through intense workouts. Even more players were participating in July workouts. The players' response to the new staff and new methods has been rewarding to both Galt and Coach Franklin.

Larry Smith

Sr., quarterback "Everybody have gotten a lot closer. We're working harder than we've ever worked. Everybody is coming together as a team."

Wesley Johnson

Soph., offensive tackle

"I can't say enough about how the players have bought into Coach Galt's program. The results they are getting have been unbelievable. All the effort will be rewarded," Franklin said. "I'm more than pleased. These young men have done everything that I've asked of them, and done it with great attitude. I'm seeing the results of what they are accomplishing and I think they're seeing it too," Galt said.

Curtis Gatewood

Reshard Langford

Safety Reshard Langford and defensive end/linebacker Curtis Gatewood are just two of many former Commodores who have benefited from impressive performances at Vanderbilt's annual Pro Day activities. Professional scouts stage the Pro Day event on campus just weeks before the NFL Draft. It gives draft-eligible former Commodores a chance to showcase their skills to would-be NFL suitors through a series of agility tests and on-field drills. Pro Day has helped numerous Commodores. Jay Cutler and Chris Williams solidified first-round grades with impressive workouts. Others like Langford and Gatewood eventually earned free agent deals with NFL clubs.

vanderbilt University

The University

Scenic urban Campus home to unique Education Located in the popular Midtown district of Nashville, Vanderbilt is regarded among the nation's finest universities. The private research university enrolled 6,970 undergraduate and 5,835 postgraduate students last year. Those students arrive on campus from all 50 states and nearly 100 countries. The university was founded 138 years ago when shipping and rail magnate "Commodore" Cornelius Vanderbilt provided an initial $1 million endowment. Vanderbilt is one of 10 charter members of the Southeastern Conference. It is the only private school among the SEC's 12-member universities. Vanderbilt is ranked among the top universities in America. In its popular annual "Best Colleges" edition, U.S. News & World Report most recently ranked Vanderbilt No. 17 among all national universities. The magazine also placed Vanderbilt No. 2 among schools located in the Southeast. The campus is located 1.5 miles southwest of downtown Nashville on 330 pristine acres that was designated a national arboretum in 1988. Two focal areas of campus closed to vehicles – the Peabody campus and the collection of academic buildings surrounding Kirkland Hall that form the original campus – are frequently listed among the most beautiful college environments in the South. Though located within walking distance of downtown activities, the quality of Vanderbilt life is reflected in much smaller, less public ways – running into friends while walking on campus, researching papers or grabbing a late-night snack with friends, choosing between a public policy lecture or athletic event, or having dinner at a professor’s home. Most Vanderbilt undergraduates live on campus during their time at the university. Thirty-four residential halls dot the campus, ranging from the four towers off West End Avenue to The Ingram Commons, a state-of-the-art complex for Vanderbilt's first-year students that has attracted national acclaim for its design and unique living experience. Vanderbilt offers numerous degrees in four undergraduate colleges: the College of Arts and Science, Peabody College, School of Engineering and Blair School of Music.

City OFFERS array of activities Vanderbilt's hometown of Nashville is a vibrant, 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, Bridgestone Arena, the Schermerhorn Symphony Center and Frist Center for the Visual Arts.

The sec & Media Exposure THE SEC: WITHOUT PEER

Remarkably, SEC teams have captured the last five BCS national championships.

SEC Football is TV Ratings HIT On Oct. 4, 2008, Vanderbilt enjoyed one of its finest days of football. Sporting an undefeated record and facing a key home conference game with Auburn, ESPN's College GameDay aired live from the campus for the first time. The broadcast and thrilling 14-13 Commodore victory before an ESPN primetime national television audience brought huge media attention to the university. Vanderbilt Athletics, due in large part to the SEC's expansive television contract with ESPN and CBS, is drawing more and more media coverage. Virtually every Commodore football game is available on TV across the nation via either ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, CBS and SEC Network affiliates. Viewership and ratings on SEC games continued to expand in 2010. Six of the nation's ten most watched college games in 2010 were SEC pairings. The highest ranked regular game was the finale between Alabama and Auburn. The highest ranked conference championship game was the Auburn-South Carolina clash in Atlanta. Three of the four largest audiences for bowls involved SEC teams.

How deep is the SEC quality? Those five consecutive national titles have been captured by four different teams: Alabama, Florida, LSU and Auburn Since the BCS was created in 1998, the SEC has captured seven national titles, five more than any other league. SEC teams are 7-0 in BCS national title games, and 8-2 in BCS bowl games since 2006. The conference has also claimed five consecutive Associated Press national titles. This is the first time any league has accomplished the feat in the 75-year history of the AP poll. Since 2006, the SEC is 30-16 in bowl games (.652). This includes Vanderbilt's win over Boston College in the 2008 Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl. SEC teams finished the 2010 season with a non-conference mark of 46-10, marking a .793 winning performance. The SEC had 38 players selected in the 2011 NFL draft, more than any other league. More former SEC players were on 2010 NFL rosters than any other conference. Eight SEC players were selected in the first round of the 2011 draft, including the overall first pick and five players taken in the first six selection. Three of the last four Heisman Trophy winners have come from schools in the Southeastern Conference.

The SEC: Second to None

Vanderbilt is a charter member of the Southeastern Conference. During the last five years, SEC football has experienced success that is unparalleled in its football history and, perhaps, in college football history.


2o11 outlook

team outlook p Vanderbilt football enters a new era this fall. When James Franklin took the helm in December, he promised to guide the Commodore football team to championship level competitor. This season, Franklin will lay the foundation for a great college football turnaround story. “It’s time that the football team reflects Vanderbilt University’s commitment to excellence,” the Commodore head coach said when he landed in Nashville for the announcement of his hiring. Franklin’s arrival generated excitement that has only swelled in advance of the team’s home opener. On February 2, Franklin further stoked the community’s enthusiasm for Vanderbilt football when he unveiled an impressive recruiting class that included 21 signees from 13 states. Many highly rated high school athletes jumped at the chance to play Franklin’s brand of up tempo, high energy football. During spring ball, Franklin worked with the team to install new systems on offense, defense and special teams, but also to establish what he calls a “championship mentality.” Through a rigorous spring practice season, Franklin declined to create a depth chart. “We want to create as competitive an environment as possible. We want players to be fighting for their job,” Franklin said in advance of the spring game. Despite returning 21 starters from a year ago, Franklin has emphasized that players will need to work hard through preseason drills to claim their spot on the starting lineup. Franklin and his players look forward to restoring energy to Vanderbilt Stadium when they take the field and jump start a tradition of excellence in football.

QUARTERBACK The quarterback position will undoubtedly invite the most speculation, conversation and scrutiny as the Elon opener approaches. Higher completion percentages and eliminating miscues will be a focus for this position. Five players will be fighting to take the

Quarterback Larry Smith snaps for the Dores this season: two-year starter Larry Smith, junior Jordan Rodgers, and freshman signees Josh Grady, Kris Kentera and Lafonte Thourogood. Franklin noted that Smith “has all the tools you look for in a quarterback. He’s physical and has an NFL arm. He also picks up concepts quickly and understands coverages.” Smith showed across-the-board improvement during spring drills, throwing with more accuracy and confidence during the Black and Gold Spring Game. Rodgers, younger brother of 2011 Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers, struggled with injuries during his first year on campus, but is expected to be healthy for camp in August. The coaching staff will also closely monitor the preseason progress of the three quarterbacks signed in February.

RUNNING BACKS The ground game will feature improved depth as a trio of returning juniors and a redshirt sophomore bring experience to the backfield. Warren Norman and Zac Stacy are on pace to enter the team’s all-time Top 10 for rushing yards. In 2010, Norman and Stacy rushed for 459 and 331 yards, respectively. Both averaged over five yards per carry last year and bring speed, power, and big-play potential to the rushing attack. Wesley Tate impressed the new coaching staff during spring drills and brings greater size and power to the run game. Junior Micah Powell transitioned from linebacker and made great improvement during spring practice. The Commodores also welcome 2011 signees Mitchell Hester and Jerron Seymour, as well as two leading fullback prospects: sophomore Fitz Lassing and junior Marc Panu.

Junior running backs Zac Stacy and Warren Norman celebrate a score 16

team outlook

TIGHT ENDS Senior veteran Brandon Barden leads all SEC tight ends with 91 career receptions, earned all-conference honors in 2010 and should easily surpass the 1,000-yard mark for career receiving yards this season. The Commodores will support Braden by improving depth at the position with the return of junior Austin Monahan and sophomore Mason Johnston.

Offensive Letterwinners

OFFENSIVE LINE In 2010, the Commodores replaced all five starters on the offensive line. This year, all five players will return looking to develop into a cohesive protective unit. The line is anchored by a pair of talented tackles in redshirt junior Ryan Seymour and redshirt sophomore Wesley Johnson. Both come with experience and determination. The duo played virtually every snap last 2011 Vanderbilt Fact Book

receptions in 2009, but finished 2010 with only 25 catches. Redshirt senior Udom Umoh also had fewer receptions in 2010 than in 2009. Both finished spring drills poised for a rebound in 2011. Sophomores Jonathan Krause and Jordan Matthews ended 2010 as the teams’ top receiving threats and capped spring ball with big catches in the Black and Gold Game. Several others will push for playing time during camp, including junior Jameson Sackey, redshirt junior Akeem Dunham, redshirt sophomore Brady Brown, redshirt freshman Chris Boyd, redshirt freshman Trent Pruitt and freshman signee Jacquese Kirk.


2o11 outlook

team outlook DEFENSIVE LINE The Commodores defense enters the 2011 season poised for an aggressive battle at the line of scrimmage. The defensive front returns most of the key 2010 contributors and adds a number of key prospects. Redshirt junior Rob Lohr started every game as tackle last yea, ending the season with four sacks and eight tackles for a loss. Redshirt senior T.J. Greenstone battled injuries for most of 2010 and will likely play alongside Lohr at tackle. Junior Colt Nichter, redshirt junior Josh Jelesky, sophomore Jared Morse, and redshirt junior Taylor Loftley return for the 2011 campaign on the heels of a successful spring. Nichter turned heads during the Black and Gold game with a pair of sacks and two pass deflections. Morse gained experience as a true freshman last year with appearances in seven games. Jelesky and Loftley also contributed in reserve roles in 2010. Redshirt freshman Vince Taylor and incoming signee Barron Dixon are interior prospects that will garner preseason attention from coaches. Redshirt senior Tim Fugger leads the Commodore defensive ends. The two-year starter paced the SEC with four forced fumbles as a junior. During spring drills redshirt freshman Kyle Woestmann registered one big play after another during the Black and Gold game and will compete with redshirt sophomore Walker May and redshirt junior Johnell Thomas for a starting job across from Fugger. Redshirt junior Dexter Daniels moved to defensive end in the spring and will compete for playing time. Other prospects at end are redshirt sophomore Thad McHaney and incoming freshman Darien Bryant and Jimmy Stewart. LINEBACKERS Redshirt senior interior linebacker Chris Marve will anchor the corps of promising though inexperienced linebackers. Marve is the first SEC linebacker to register over 100 tackles as a freshman and sophomore in a decade. Marve battled injuries as a junior but still finished with 80 tackles. Marve’s accolades include a second straight second team All-SEC honor in 2010 and also a preseason all-league pick for

Defensive end Tim Fugger 2011. He’s been named to watch lists for several individual awards, including the Lott IMPACT, Nagurski and Bednarik trophies. Redshirt junior DeAndre Jones also will compete for time at the position. At the outside linebacker positions, several returnees will compete for the starting roles, including redshirt juniors Archibald Barnes and Tristan Strong and sophomore Chase Garnham. Also expected to challenge for playing time are redshirt junior Al Owens and senior walk-on Bobby Jewell. Jimmy Stewart and Darien Bryant are talented signees that could play either linebacker or end.

CORNERBACKS

SAFETIES Senior free safety Sean Richardson returns to lead the talented and deep group of safeties. Richardson was Vanderbilt’s lead tackler in 2010 garnering 67 solo tackles and 98 total stops. Sophomore Kenny Ladler started the final eight games at free safety and earned freshman All-SEC recognition from league coaches. He is expected to fill the role beside Richardson in the defensive backfield. Several talented players will keep Richardson and Ladler fresh in supporting roles. Redshirt junior Eric Samuels posted 27 tackles in 2010 after moving to the defense from running back. Redshirt sophomore Javon Marshall moved to safety from cornerback during spring drills. Sophomores Karl Butler and Andre Simmons are physical players who provide solid support against the rush. New signees Larry Franklin, Jahmel McIntosh and Andrew Williamson will get in on the action in 2011 as well.

Kent's superb hang time allowed opponents to only average just 6.8 yards per return. Kent was also accurate, dropping 28 punts inside the opponent's end zone. Either Fowler and Spear are expected to serve as the second team punter. RETURN SPECIALISTS The Commodores return an All-America candidate in kickoff returner Warren Norman. The junior has a 25.9-yard career average, and three returns for touchdowns. Other potential kickoff returners with collegiate experience are Trey Wilson, Eric Samuels and Andre Hal. Zac Stacy, Jonathan Krause and John Cole have experience as punt returners. Cole topped the Commodores in 2010 with a 7.9-yard return average. 2011 Vanderbilt Fact Book

Head Coach

Head Coach James Franklin

First-year Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin expects success. Named as the 27th head coach to guide the Commodores on Dec. 17, 2010, Franklin immediately began changing expectations within the program and inspiring a championship mentality with the entire Vanderbilt Football community. But, Franklin brings more than a positive outlook. Franklin’s passion for the game, energetic coaching style, nationally-recognized recruiting prowess, and experience in developing highly productive offensive schemes will help fuel what Franklin believes will be one of the greatest turnarounds in college football. Franklin’s message is gaining momentum and producing results. On National Signing Day, Franklin announced a 21-player class that recruiting experts lauded as Vanderbilt’s best in decades. Rivals.com has recognized Franklin as among the nation’s top 25 recruiters. When spring practices began, Franklin motivated top effort and fostered the team’s competitive spirit by working without a depth chart through the duration of the session. In April, an impressive audience watched a preview of the Commodores’ new brand of football at the Black and Gold Spring Game. Franklin’s enthusiasm is contagious and has energized the Vanderbilt fan base in anticipation of the home opener. Franklin spent the last five seasons coordinating highly productive offensive units at top Division I programs. Most recently, Franklin served as offensive coordinator and assistant head coach

at the University of Maryland. In 2010, Maryland enjoyed an impressive one-year turnaround and contended for the Atlantic Coast Conference crown during their 9-4 campaign. Franklin’s explosive offensive averaged 32.2 points and topped 50 points in three games. Disciplined and patient, the unit committed just 14 total turnovers as the Terps ranked fourth nationally in turnover margin. Maryland redshirt freshman quarterback Danny O’Brien finished the season as one of the nation’s most efficient signal callers, throwing for 2,438 yards, 22 touchdowns, and only eight interceptions after earning the starting job in the fourth game of the season. O’Brien earned ACC Rookie of the Year honors. Terrapin senior receiver Torrey Smith flourished under Franklin’s system, finishing the year with 67 receptions, 1,055 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns en route to first team All-ACC honors. Smith was a second round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. In 2008, Franklin mentored six All-ACC offensive performers in his return to Maryland as offensive coordinator including 2009 first-round NFL draft pick, receiver Darius Heyward-Bey. Franklin displayed his recruiting skill at Maryland, helping the Terrapins sign ten four-star recruits in the 2009 and 2010 classes. Franklin’s first experience as offensive coordinator produced similarly successful results. Franklin came to Maryland after spending the 2006 and 2007 seasons as offensive coordinator at Kansas State University. He helped the Wildcats earn their first winning season in four years and a berth in the inaugural Texas

Bowl. In 2006, Franklin focused on mentoring talented true freshman quarterback Josh Freeman. In 2007, Franklin’s offense produced a 3,000-yard passer (Freeman), 1,500-yard receiver (All-America wide receiver Jordy Nelson), and 1,000-yard rusher for the first time in school history. Today, Freeman and Nelson have found great success in the NFL. Freeman is the starting quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after being selected in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft. Nelson grabbed a touchdown pass in the Green Bay Packers’ victory in Super Bowl XLV. Franklin spent the 2005 season coaching wide receivers for the Green Bay Packers under current Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman. During that season, wide receiver Donald Driver set new career-high marks with 86 receptions for 1,221. “I noticed early on that he always saw the big picture. He didn’t just coach his players on the field, but saw the need for them to be accountable off the field as well,” Sherman said of his former assistant. After his brief but successful NFL tenure, Franklin returned to college coaching for the opportunity to devise offensive schemes and gain in-game play calling experience at the coordinator level. Franklin’s opportunity with the most-storied team in the NFL came on the heels of a five-year role coaching wide receivers at the University of Maryland. During his tenure, the Terps earned three post-season berths including an appearance in the 2002 FedEx Orange Bowl. Franklin Franklin’s role expanded to recruiting

coordinator in 2003. Franklin delivered back-to back recruiting classes ranked in the Top-25 by Rivals.com. Early in his career, Franklin committed himself to being a student of the game: gleaning strategies, tools and tips from great coaches at a variety of competitive levels. Franklin began his career in 1995 as the wide receivers coach at Kutztown (Pa.) University. Then, he returned to his alma mater, East Stroudsburg (Pa.) University learning the game from the defensive side of the ball coaching cornerbacks and safeties under veteran coach Denny Douds. Franklin earned a Division I position at James Madison University coaching wide receivers under head coach, Alex Wood. In 1998, Franklin earned the opportunity to participate in the NFL’s Minority Coaching Fellowship Program. Franklin interned with the Minnesota Vikings, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Miami Dolphins. Franklin also worked with Mike Price coaching tight ends at Washington State in 1998. The following year, Franklin helped Idaho State rank among the NCAA’s best in total offense as ISU’s receivers coach. Franklin developed a passion for the game as a four-year letter winning quarterback at East Stroudsburg. Franklin was a two-time Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference selection. As a senior, he garnered MVP honors and was a Harlon Hill Trophy nominee for Division II Player of the Year after setting seven school records, including single-season marks for total offense (3,128 yards), passing yards (2,568 yards) and touchdown passes (19). Franklin earned a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from East Stroudsburg in 1995 and a Master’s degree in educational leadership from Washington State in 1999. Franklin and his family have become fast fans of Nashville. He and his wife, Fumi, have two daughters, Addy, 4, and Shola, 3.

Head Coach James Franklin

Franklin:

By hiring James Franklin as its head coach, Vanderbilt has one of the nation's top quarterback mentors guiding its program. And Franklin believes the Commodores will succeed in developing future stars at the quarterback position. "Maximizing the talents of our quarterbacks and doing a great job mentoring that position is critically important to the overall success of our team," Franklin said. "It is a priority with this coaching staff." Franklin's emphasis on the position is extremely attractive to highly regarded prep quarterbacks nationwide. Indeed, the new Commodore coach knows what it takes to become a top quarterback. An elite signal caller at the Division II level during his playing days, Franklin has surrounded himself with great quarterbacks since getting into the coaching ranks in Kansas State all-time passing leader and the mid-1990s. His 2009 first round draft pick Josh Freeman resume includes time with National Football League legends, a current pro starter in Tampa Bay's Josh Freeman, and others who have achieved individual and team successes. Freeman, now in his second year at Tampa Bay, remains a huge Franklin fan. "Coach (Franklin) has meant so much to me, both on and off the field," Freeman said. "One of the best things that ever happened to me was getting to work with Coach Franklin." In three short years at Kansas State, Freeman evolved from a strong-armed prospect to the No. 17 overall NFL draft pick in 2009. In his last year paired with Franklin, Freeman emerged for the Wildcats, throwing for a team-record 3,353 yards along with 18 touchdowns. Franklin's most recent pupil, Maryland's Danny O'Brien, blossomed as a redshirt freshman in 2010. Inserted into the Terrapins' starting lineup in the fourth game, O'Brien went on to garner Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie of the Year honors after throwing for 2,438 yards, 22 touchdowns and just eight interceptions. O'Brien, also named as a first-team freshman All-American, was recruited by Franklin and swayed by the coach's knowledge of the quarterback position, competitive drive and enthusiasm.

Head Coach

Noted QB Mentor

Franklin pupil Danny O'Brien of Maryland was the ACC's Rookie of the Year and a Freshman All-American in 2010 "Coach was a big factor in my decision (to attend Maryland)," O'Brien said. "We have similar passion for the game and I thought he was the coach to mold me into the player I thought I could be." Under Franklin's watch, O'Brien spent a year improving his mechanics, learning to break down film and getting a solid grasp of the offensive scheme. Then, when given the offensive reins last fall, O'Brien never looked back. "Coach truly knows the position, and really taught me how to be a college quarterback and what it meant to have that role. Everything from watching film the proper way and leading our team to how I should carry myself, on and off the field," O'Brien said. O'Brien's rise at Maryland mirrored that of Freeman at Kansas State. "I was very raw, and needed development in really every area," Freeman said. "Coach taught me proper footwork, how to better understand pass routes and schemes, just how to play the position. Truly, to this day, my fundamental foundation as a quarterback came from the time with him." Franklin mentored Freeman after spending the 2005 season at Green Bay coaching wide receivers. The Packer quarterback was none other than NFL all-time leading passer Brett Favre. Years earlier, through the NFL's Minority Coaching Fellowship Program, Franklin also spent extended time with another passing legend, Miami hall of famer Dan Marino. "I've enjoyed some unique coaching experiences, especially at the quarterback position, and learned from each opportunity," Franklin said. "Watching how Brett Favre went about his business and how he treated his profession helped me coach and prepare Josh at Kansas State. I was better prepared to help Danny (O'Brien) after working with Josh, and I'll be even more prepared to develop Commodore quarterbacks after working with Danny." Franklin and his offensive staff will mentor a quarterback corps that includes senior Larry Smith and redshirt junior Jordan Rodgers. Three quarterback signees in the 2011 class will expand the roster this summer.

Black & Gold ReCAP

Vanderbilt capped its inaugural spring practice session under Head Coach James Franklin as the Black team topped the Gold team 19-7 in the Black and Gold Spring Game, held April 17 at Vanderbilt Stadium. After the Gold team got on the board first with a 15-yard touchdown, the Black squad scored the game's final 19 points to secure the win. An estimated crowd of 7,500 attended the first spring intrasquad game held staged by Vanderbilt in more than a decade. The game was sandwiched between an autograph session and a post-game fireworks show. "First of all, I haven't been here very long, but I was very pleased with the whole organization of everything," Franklin said. "The autograph session was very well attended. I got to interact with a lot of fans. The big thing is that we stayed healthy. From top to bottom I was pleased." The Black team was led by the quarterback-wide receiver combination of Larry Smith and Jordan Matthews. Smith finished the game 16-of-26 passing for 233 yards, one touchdown pass, one receiving touchdown and one interception. The touchdown pass was to Matthews, who had a game-high seven catches for 103 yards. Placekicker Carey Spear answered the Gold team's lone touchdown with field goals of 31 and 22 yards in the first half to drawn the Black to within one point at 7-6. Spear's second field goal came after a defensive stand by the Gold squad. An acrobatic 49-yard catch by wide receiver Jonathan Krause brought the Black to the 4-yard line, but the Gold defense held, with Nichter's pressure forcing an errant pass into the end zone by Smith. Just seconds before intermission, the Black team got its first touchdown of the game when Smith connected with Matthews for the 23-yard score. The only score of the half came on the last play of the game -- which also proved to be the most exciting of the game. The final play was a reverse and eventual pass from running back Zac Stacy to Smith, who leaped in the endzone for the 10-yard touchdown as time expired. The game was mostly dictated by the defense from both squads. Taking advantage of a fatigued offensive line that played both ways, each team compiled eight sacks and one interception. Nichter compiled three stops for the Gold team, which included two sacks and two pass breakups. Linebacker Chase Garnham (Gold) led all players with eight tackles. For the Black squad, linebacker Andrew East had two sacks, and defensive end Kyle Woestmann had a sack and an interception.

2010 Review

game recaps Northwestern (23) at Vanderbilt (21) 2010 review

Vanderbilt Stadium, Nashville (37,210) • Sept. 4, 2010 •CSS

NASHVILLE – Dan Persa threw for 222 yards and three touchdowns to three different receivers, and Northwestern beat Vanderbilt 23-21 in the regular season game between the Big Ten and the SEC. This was Persa’s first start with Mike Kafka now gone, and the junior was nearly perfect as he helped ruin the debut of Vanderbilt’s new head coach Robbie Caldwell in the season opener for both teams. Persa was 19 of 21 passing and he also led the Wildcats with 82 yards rushing. Vanderbilt had plenty of chances to make Caldwell the first Commodores’ coach to win his debut since 1997. Larry Smith threw for 240 yards and a touchdown with Warren Norman and Zac Stacy each running for touchdowns. But the Commodores missed an extra point, a 48-yard field goal and were stopped on two 2-point conversions -- the last with 2:25 left on a bad snap. Northwestern faced third-and-6 from its own 33 when Persa was hit a yard short of the first down marker by Vandy safety Jay Fullam. But officials flagged him for a high hit and a personal foul, allowing Northwestern to run out the clock even though it looked on replay as if Fullam simply put his shoulder into Persa’s shoulder for the stop. The crowd of 37,210, booed the officials off the field.

#16 LSU (27) at Vanderbilt (3)

Vanderbilt Stadium, Nashville (36,940) • Sept. 11, 2010 • ESPNU NASHVILLE – LSU coach Les Miles still sees his Tigers making mistakes that must be corrected. His defense can only be counted on to cover up those problems for so long. Stevan Ridley scored a 65-yard touchdown and ran for 144 of his career-high 159 yards in the second half, and the Tigers came up with six sacks in defeating Vanderbilt 27-3. It was the Tigers’ seventh straight win in this series in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams. The Tigers nearly blew a 30-10 lead a week ago against North Carolina before knocking down a couple of last-second passes in the end zone to preserve a 30-24 victory. Ridley had a couple of turnovers in that game, but he helped the Tigers seal this victory with 17 unanswered points in the fourth quarter.

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – Jordan Todman ran for 190 yards and two touchdowns to lead Connecticut to a 40-21 win over Vanderbilt, just the second win for the Big East over a BCS conference team this season. Todman, who carried the ball 37 times, has now rushed for over 100 yards in seven of his last eight games. He missed last week’s game against Buffalo with an injured left arm. The Huskies (3-2) outscored the Commodores 19-0 in the second half, after holding a 21-21 halftime lead. Cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson put the game away when he stepped in front of receiver Akeem Dunham, returning the interception 44 yards for a touchdown midway through the fourth quarter to put the Huskies up 38-21. Larry Smith threw for 157 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 64 yards to lead Vanderbilt (1-3). Running back Warren Norman had over 162 yards on kick returns.

2010 Review

OXFORD, Miss. – Warren Norman rushed for 111 yards, including an 80-yard touchdown, as Vanderbilt beat Ole Miss 28-14 for coach Robbie Caldwell’s first career win. Vanderbilt (1-2, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) snapped a 10-game conference losing streak dating back to 2008. The 'Dores have beaten the Rebels four of the past six seasons. It was Norman’s third career 100-yard rushing game, and his first against an SEC opponent. The Commodores did most of their damage on the ground, rushing for 227 yards. Vanderbilt lived off big plays all afternoon. The Commodores scored their first three touchdowns on 35-yard touchdown run by Zac Stacy, a 21-yard interception return by Eddie Foster and the biggest of all -- Norman’s 80-yard touchdown run that gave them the lead for good. Norman’s touchdown came at a critical juncture. Ole Miss (1-2, 1-1) had just tied the scored at 14-14 when the 5-foot-10, 195-pound sophomore scored on Vanderbilt’s first play from scrimmage, running untouched for the longest run of his career and the second-longest run in school history.

Vanderbilt (14) at #19 Arkansas (49)

Razorback Stadium, Fayetteville (70,430) • Oct. 30, 2010 • FSN

NASHVILLE – Brian Maddox rushed for a career-high 146 yards and the game-clinching touchdown to lead No. 19 South Carolina to a difficult 21-7 win over Vanderbilt, giving Steve Spurrier his 40th victory with the Gamecocks. The win snapped South Carolina’s seven-game Southeastern Conference road losing streak that dated back to 2008 and put the Gamecocks (5-2, 3-2) in first place in the SEC East. South Carolina had lost two of the last three to Vanderbilt (2-5, 1-3). Maddox didn’t carry the ball until South Carolina’s fourth series with about 6 minutes left in the first half, replacing an ineffective Kenny Miles, who started in place of injured freshman Marcus Lattimore. And he wasn’t much of a boost for the mistake-prone Gamecocks until the second half when he rushed for 48 yards on the game-changing drive midway through the third quarter. Spurrier has struggled with the Commodores since moving to Columbia. The Gamecocks needed a fourth-quarter touchdown to beat Vanderbilt 14-10 last season and with Lattimore out South Carolina continued to struggle in the series.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Ryan Mallett kept finding new targets, even as his top receivers kept leaving with injuries. It was that kind of night for the Arkansas quarterback, who set a school record with 409 yards passing in a 49-14 win over Vanderbilt. Mallett topped his own record of 408 yards, set last year against Georgia, and finished 27 of 44 passing as the No. 19 Razorbacks (6-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) won their second straight game. The junior also threw for three touchdowns and connected with eight different receivers as Arkansas scored 43 straight points after trailing early. Mallett missed parts of each of the past two games with injuries. He suffered a concussion in the first quarter of a loss at Auburn two weeks ago and left with a bruised throwing shoulder in the second half against Mississippi last week.

NASHVILLE – The Florida Gators are back on track. hris Rainey blocked two punts and caught a 40-yard C touchdown pass from John Brantley as Florida defeated Vanderbilt 55-14.

NASHVILLE – Josh Harris rushed for 138 yards and one touchdown and Wake Forest defeated Vanderbilt 34-13 in Robbie Caldwell's last game as Vanderbilt's head coach. Caldwell announced he was stepping down earlier in the day, ending his short tenure at the helm. Vanderbilt (2-10) ended the season on a seven-game losing streak, which is currently tied for the second-longest skid in the Football Bowl Subdivision. It was the Commodores' second straight 10-loss season. They have had at least nine losses in six of the last 10 seasons. The Demon Deacons (3-9), who snapped a nine-game losing skid, were aided by several Vanderbilt special teams miscues. The Commodores missed two field goals (50 and 37 yards) and had two punts blocked. Caldwell took over in mid-July for Bobby Johnson, who abruptly resigned. That gave Caldwell, who spent the previous eight seasons as Vanderbilt's offensive line coach, just seven weeks to prepare for the season opener. The game marked the first time since Nov. 29, 2008 – also against Vanderbilt – that Wake Forest blocked two punts in one contest.

2010 Review

NASHVILLE – Tauren Poole rushed for 99 yards and the game-clinching touchdown and Tennessee kept its slim bowl hopes alive under first-year coach Derek Dooley with a 24-10 win over Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt (2-9, 1-7 Southeastern Conference) threatened with a late touchdown, but Tennessee (5-6, 2-5) sent the Commodores to their sixth straight loss when Poole took advantage of a failed onside kick to rip off a 28-yard touchdown run with 1:11 remaining. Tennessee won its third straight game for the first time since 2007. Tyler Bray threw for 232 yards, but struggled for the first time since taking over as starter three weeks ago with two interceptions. Bray got off to a fast start, and early on, looked like the fabulous freshman who guided Tennessee to 102 points in wins over Memphis and Mississippi by throwing for 648 yards with eight touchdowns and no interceptions. Bray completed nine of his first 10 passes and gave the Volunteers a 14-0 lead midway through the second quarter with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter in the first quarter and a 20-yard scoring pass to Denarius Moore. He killed Tennessee’s next two drives with interceptions, though, then had trouble connecting with his receivers the rest of the way, finishing 16 of 27.

Playing the Texas State Fair

The Golden Years

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

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

Overpowering Commodores

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

One of the greatest and most beloved Commodores of all-time, Irby "Rabbit" Curry, gave his life defending America in the skies over France. Curry was a standout quarterback from 1914-16, a scholar and student leader. As a senior, classmates elected him "Bachelor of Ugliness" – the highest award given to a male Vanderbilt undergrad.

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

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

vanderbilt University

Vanderbilt, founded 138 years ago by a $1 million gift by Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt, is one of the nation’s leading institutions of higher learning, a mid-size, private comprehensive research university that emphasizes undergraduate learning and living experiences. Members of the undergraduate student body, including Commodore student-athletes, are outstanding academic achievers and active participants in Vanderbilt’s 350-plus extracurricular organizations. They also compose the most diverse enrollment ever at Vanderbilt as the university continues to attract students from many ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, geographic and religious backgrounds. Since its inception, the university has taken great pride in the quality of education – and quality of life – its students enjoy. Each of the four undergraduate colleges – College of Arts and Science, School of Engineering, Blair School of Music and Peabody College – attracts students with varying goals and dreams. Whichever school they enroll in, students receive a valuable and versatile education and are an integral part of the University’s community of scholars. 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, courserelated 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 classrooms and labs, various options for housing and ample athletic and recreational facilities.

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 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, witnessed a large expansion in 1979 when Vanderbilt merged with neighboring George Peabody College for Teachers.

Notable Vanderbilt Alumni The Ingram Commons: Rare Living Experience for students The Martha Rivers Ingram Commons ranks among the finest on-campus living and learning experiences on the American higher education landscape. Consisting of 10 modern residential "houses" and a full-service Commons Center, the community serves as home to all first-year Vanderbilt undergraduates. Christened four years ago, The Ingram Commons is located in the southeast quadrant of Vanderbilt, on its Peabody campus. The Ingram Commons also was showcased nearly three years ago when ESPN selected the site as its location for the popular College Football GameDay broadcast prior to airing the Vanderbilt's victory over Auburn on campus. An experienced staff of student life professionals and undergraduate and graduate resident advisers assures the health, well-being, and safety of each member of The Ingram Commons community. Residents of each house are mentored by a member of the university faculty. The showpiece Commons Center, a modern dining and activity hub surrounded by the residential houses, features a diverse selection of great food in the Eatery dining hall. The climate-controlled facility brings plenty of variety, ranging from the place to study with friends to hosting an occasional musical performance. The Commons Cafe also brings students, faculty and staff together for delicious food and social interaction. Bringing scholars, leaders, teachers and students together to create a vibrant intellectual community is at the heart of The Ingram Commons mission.

Vanderbilt alumni are having a positive impact on the nation. Many of Vanderbilt's 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: Buster Olney is ESPN's top baseball analyst; David Price was the American League starting pitcher in the 2010 MLB All-Star game; Brandt Snedeker won his second PGA Tour event in April and will contend for the Federal Express Cup this summer; Skip Bayless is co-host of an ESPN morning debate show; Kentuckian Arthur Hancock is a leading breeder of Kentucky Derby-caliber thoroughbreds; ; and four former Commodores started for the Chicago Bears that played in the 2011 NFC Championship Game. From the halls of Congress, Lamar Alexander is one of the nation's most effective leaders as Tennessee's senior senator. Rear Admiral Nora Tyson commands America’s newest aircraft carrier. Suspense enthusiasts gobble up James Patterson's newest thriller. Economist and Novel Peace Prize recipient 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.

By replacing undergraduate need-based loans with grant and scholarship assistance, the university opened its doors wider to highly talented and qualified students of all economic, cultural and geographical backgrounds. The expanded aid program is funded by a combination of strategic budget allocations and the university’s Opportunity Vanderbilt initiative, which has generated more than $108 million in endowment support.

vanderbilt stadium

Vanderbilt Stadium: HomE VENUE Since 1981 All of the Commodores' home games will be played in Vanderbilt Stadium, their on-campus venue for the last 30 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 a renovation of Gate 1 near the Marriott Vanderbilt. The Dudley Field playing surface has been natural grass since 1999.
