    New Vandy Coach

    For the second time in as many years, the perennially football challenged Vanderbilt Commodores has hired new coach on the very eve of the season. While the school has traditionally been known better for its academics and obnoxious rich girls, the school is clearly becoming more demanding of its athletic programs, which in part could be caused partly by the recent success of the basketball program. Simply put, the loss of the program's prestige last year was too much for many alumni. Experts question whether such turmoil will have a negative impact on recruiting and the product on the field while others question whether the instability around the program means that it is time for the school to hire a full time athletic director.

    Fans and alumni are generally pleased with the new hire - reconizing the school made the best hire it could on such short notice. The new coach, formerly the successful Defensive Coordinator at Arizona State, stated in his press conference that "I am very excited to be a head coach at such a great universityin such a great conference - I look forward to the competition of seeing some of the nations best teams every week. It will not be easy but the program will be turned around this year and we will get back to a bowl game."

    While the alumni and fans are pleased with the coach's confidence, they are understably concerned given the school's 2011 schedule which includes games road games at #10 South Carolina, #16 Alabama, #7 Florida and rival Tennessee, home dates with #11 Arkansas, #6 Ole Miss, Georgia and competitive non-conference matchups with Maryland, Wake Forest and Connecticut. With that schedule experts agree that 6 or 7 wins, a bowl game and an improved recruiting class would make the 2011 season a success.
