Last season's record: 2-10
Returning starters/letterwinners: 22/51
John Stokes LB – 3-year starter had 78 tackles including 6 for losses.
Nate Campbell LB – 27 tackles including 4 1/2 for losses. 1 forced fumble.
Joey Bailey C – Veteran lineman was team co-captain in 2010.
Chris Marve MLB – A four-year starter and All-SEC selection.
Brandon Barden TE – Caught 91 career passes.
Casey Hayward CB – Intercepted 6 passes in 2010.
Oct. 15 vs. Georgia at Vanderbilt Stadium.
Projected finish: 4-8
A bevy of returning starters coupled with the arrival of
innovative new head coach James Franklin will spell improvement for
Vanderbilt. The days of punting at the opponent's 35-yard line are
long over. The Commodores were inundated with injuries to key players
last season and will likely fair better in that department this
season. Vanderbilt will show significant improvement in 2011 and then begin to contend for bowl bids in ensuing seasons as the excellent recruiting pays dividends.
