Spencer Pulley: WKU offense high powered

Spencer Pulley was a part of James Franklin's first recruiting class at Vanderbilt in 2011. The senior offensive linemen out of the Memphis area has come into his own the past two seasons starting in all 25 games. He spoke at SEC Media Days about the transition year under head coach Derek Mason in 2014.

"It was definitely frustrating," Spencer Pulley said. "When you go through the season you try and take it one game at a time, going from one week to the next. At the end of that season, it was hard to look back on it. It hurt to look back on what we had done (with Franklin), but from that point on we met as a team and decided that if we wanted to do the same things and have the same outcomes, or wanted to do something else. That's what we did and we set goals to become a better and a new team."

The Commodores will start the new campaign in Nashville against a Western Kentucky team that's fresh off an eight-win season capped off with a victory in the Bahamas Bowl. Pulley said he's looking forward to showing people the new-look Commodores.

"I know Western Kentucky is a high-powered team, can score a lot of points," Pulley said of the Sept. 3rd opponent. "But I'm excited about where we are as a team, and where we will be when we play them. This team has this best talent and work ethic than any I've been a part of at Vanderbilt. This is definitely a completely different team than last year."
