2007 Media Days: Legge's Look at Vanderbilt

BIRMINGHAM – Here's a look at the day Vanderbilt Head Coach Bobby Johnson and the Commodores had at the SEC's annual Media Day event. Vanderbilt finished sixth in the SEC East last season and did not go to a bowl.

Last season: 4-8
Last game vs. Georgia: 24-22 win
Series Record: Georgia leads 47-18-2
Most memorable Georgia win: 1983 – All-American Terry Hoage knocks away a Vanderbilt pass near the end of the game to save the win for the Dawgs.
Most painful Georgia loss: 1994 – Ray Goff may have lost his job when Vandy ran up the score on the Dawgs in Athens – on Homecoming, no less. Honorable mention 2006 when Vandy shocked Georgia on Homecoming again.
Starters returning: 19

Best player: Earl Bennett
Biggest Weakness: The biggest hurdle for Vandy is the schedule – Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Auburn and Alabama are all on the slate this year. What fun. Lest we forget Kentucky, South Carolina and Wake Forest.
2007's big question: Can these guys really get to a bowl?
