Bowl follies, the way it used to be, and how it ought to be in future...

Bowls are funny things. In 2010, a record of 8-4 was enough to get Connecticut the Big East championship and a berth in a BCS bowl. In 2012, a record of 8-4 is good enough to get Vanderbilt...

VCDW Cashes In; Officially Becomes Athletic Director

8

Giving up his role as general counsel and university secretary, but staying on VLS faculty and officially assuming the title of AD, which will legit make him (presumably) the highest-paid athletic director in college sports. Given his track record so far, this is a gold-letter day for Vanderbilt sports.

Sheldon Jeter Is Your Newest MBB Commodore

3

With scholarships to spare, we need bodies - and if one of them is a Rivals 150 forward described as "a 3 in the body of a 4", so much the better. Three-star small forward announced today that he'll attend Vanderbilt next season, giving Kevin Stallings his highest-rated recruit for 2012. Jeter, a 6'7", 210 pound swingman, is a lithe forward who could turn into a power forward threat if he can continue to grow in the coming seasons. He turned down offers from Wisconsin, Penn State, South Carolina, and Kansas State to join Stallings's rebuilding effort next season. Welcome Sheldon - and get ready to play SOON.

He's gone

John Jenkins passed up the NBA draft once already - to do it twice would be asking an awful lot. Personally, I'm pulling hard for him to wind up with the Warriors, the Kings, or the Hornets when the NBA eventually caves and lets Larry Ellison move them to San Jose. Thanks for everything, Flamethrower. Give 'em hell.

ESPN: Franklin wants to tweak schedule

5

I'm of two minds about this. I want to play quality OOC opponents, especially big-name programs like Ohio State, because I think that's a true measuring stick nationally and those are big wins. But in a world where nobody plays more than one meaningful OOC opponent ever, it seems like unilateral disarmament to load up the schedule with anything other than Presbyterian, East Roast Beef and Girl Scout Troop 266. Where's the correct divide? I don't want to go full-Auburn here, but we only got to bowl eligibility last year by going 4-0 OOC. Can we afford not to schedule down?

The Washington Post's Vanderbilt James Franklin Maryland Terps beat reporter Eric Prisbell talked to the Sports Junkies on WJFK 106.7 in DC this morning. Clip is about 18 minutes and goes on at length about the big picture in Maryland athletics. Most notable nugget: the suggestion that the tampering charge was filed for the purpose of sandbagging any chance of Vanderbilt making a run...
