'14 NFL Draft Capsules: Carey Spear, K/Explosioner

6

Carey Spear likes to hit people. We knew that. What we overlook, however, is that he developed into an accurate All-SEC kicker who made all of his field goals from 50+ yards in 2013. Does he have a place in the NFL?

Nashville DA: Franklin's Contact Not Relevant

12

District Attorney Tom Thurman comments on then-Vanderbilt coach James Franklin's contact with an alleged rape victim one day after a MNPD investigation into the potential crime took place: "It wasn't really that relevant to us."

Lawyers: James Franklin Contacted Rape Victim

81

Former Vandy recruit Brandon Vandenburg's lawyers suggest that James Franklin didn't just contact the victim of an alleged on-campus rape days after it happened. They also say he wanted her to help create a group of recruiting "hostesses" at Vandy.

4-Star SF Joseph Toye Picks Vanderbilt for '15

Vanderbilt's 2015 recruiting class got another boost on Tuesday when Joseph Toye, a 6'7", 4-star small forward, chose to anchor down. He'll join sweet-shooting Camron Justice on campus next summer.

2014 NFL Draft Capsules: Walker May, DE

5

Walker May? Walker DOES. Vandy's senior DE led a disruptive group in 2013 and started 33 straight games for the Commodores. Does he have a place in the NFL?

2014 NFL Draft Capsules: Karl Butler, LB/S

+

Karl Butler was a hybrid linebacker/safety at the "star" position for Vanderbilt in 2012 and 2013. Can he find a spot in the NFL Draft in 2014?

Sweet Shooting Camron Justice Picks Vandy for 2015

12

First Cornell transfer Nolan Cressler, now Camron Justice. The Vanderbilt backcourt will be loaded with shooting talent in 2015-2016.

2014 NFL Draft Capsules: Andre Hal, CB

13

Andre Hal will leave Nashville as another link in a chain of tremendous Vanderbilt cornerbacks. What can he bring to the NFL - and where will he be picked when the 2014 NFL Draft rolls around?

Nolan Cressler (16.8 ppg) to Transfer to Vandy

46

Vanderbilt's backcourt got a big boost on Wednesday when Cornell transfer Nolan Cressler chose Vanderbilt over Dayton, Michigan, and Pittsburgh. He'll join a loaded 2014 recruiting class that's primed to continue the Vandy tradition.

Schadenfreude Friday: McDonalds & the '84 Olympics

5

McDonald's loved American athletes so much that the company was willing to give away millions of dollars worth of food to support them in the 1984 Olympics. Of course, a Soviet boycott of those games certainly didn't help things.

2014 NFL Draft Capsules: Wesley Tate, RB/WR

+

Tailback and part-time wideout Wesley Tate brought leadership and a versatile offensive game to the Vanderbilt backfield. Can he find a spot in the NFL?

NFL Draft Capsules: Wesley Johnson, OG, OT, & C

4

Wesley Johnson started 51 straight games for the Commodores and only gave up two sacks in his final two years on campus. So why is this do-everything lineman not generating more interest before the 2014 NFL Draft?

Report: Vandy/Ole Miss to Be Moved to LP Field

41

One of Vanderbilt's marquee home games may no longer be at home. The Tennessean is reporting that Vandy's SEC opener against Ole Miss will be moved to LP Field in Nashville, home of the Tennessee Titans.

Can Vandy FB Benefit from Student Unionization?

41

If unionization comes to college football, the SEC - and its 11 programs in right-to-work states - could be in for some major changes. Does a pay-for-play model benefit the private schools of Division I football's power conferences?

2014 NFL Draft Capsules: Jonathan Krause, WR

4

Jonathan Krause emerged as an invaluable weapon for a nine-win Vanderbilt team in 2013. He averaged 17 yards per catch and runs a 4.34 40. So why is no one talking about him leading up to the NFL Draft?

NFL Draft Capsules: Austyn Carta-Samuels, QB

7

Austyn Carta-Samuels finished the 2013 season by rallying Vandy to three straight wins...with a torn ACL. Can the strong-armed, tough-as-nails quarterback find a place in the NFL?

Vanderbilt Eyeing Cornell Transfer Nolan Cressler

Would Vanderbilt Ever Belong in the CBI?

14

The NIT is one thing. The CBI? Totally different. Would Commodore fans support any postseason basketball - even if Vanderbilt has to pay for it?

What is Kyle Fuller's Legacy at Vanderbilt?

5

Vanderbilt senior point guard Kyle Fuller played his last game for the Commodores, and while his stats may not reflect it, he was one of the most important players for this Vandy squad. So what is his final legacy after a long journey in Nashville?

Miss. St Ends Vandy's Season With 82-68 SECT Upset

The SEC Tournament's Worst Losses: Mississippi St.

9

Vanderbilt will kick off the SEC Tournament on Wednesday when they face 3-15 Mississippi State. What can the Commodores learn from South Carolina's regular season-ending victory over the Bulldogs?

Vandy Football Releases Spring Position Chart

7

Kris Kentera, Caleb Azubike, Kyle Woestmann, and other starters have found new positions under head coach Derek Mason. Vandy will switch to a 3-4 defense next season, which means that DEs will now share duties at outside linebacker for the 'Dores.

Darreon Herring's 2013 Highlights

+

It's not often I get unsigned emails from random 404 phone numbers, but when they have a link to the next great Vanderbilt linebacker's best plays of 2013, they go up on the site. Soundtrack is NSFW.

Vandy Squanders Big Lead, Loses to LSU 57-51

5

Vanderbilt sent Rod Odom and Kyle Fuller out in heartbreaking fashion as the 'Dores blew a huge early lead in a Senior Night loss to LSU. Johnny O'Bryant had 25 points and 10 rebounds in the Tiger win.

The SEC's Worst Losses: LSU at Vandy Preview

12

1
