To celebrate Week One's arrival, SBNation has rolled out the confidence poll feature (previously only available to "sbn region"-affiliated blogs, iirc) to the rest of the network. You'll notice it in the top left. There are two options: weekly (default) and monthly. If weekly, the voting window is 48 hours starting Monday morning. If monthly, it's the full week of the first Monday of the month. Have at it.

It's AOG's inaugural football season. We're making this up on the fly, so if you have any suggestions or ideas for coverage, please share them in the comments. Otherwise we'll just ape Vanderbilt tradition by stealing the traditions of our fellow SBNation bloggers and institute them as our own.

New kickoff man: Caldwell said freshman Carey Spear from Mayfield, Ohio, will take over kickoff duties, leaving sophomore Ryan Fowler with the field goal and extra point kicking. Spear booted 49 kickoffs through the end zone as a high school senior.

"It feels good to be named starter," Smith said. "I feel a whole lot more comfortable with the offense and the overall scheme being that I played last year. I'm feeling good going into the season, and hopefully it will show out there on the field."

"Larry has separated himself, and deserves to get the ball," Caldwell said. "He has the big edge on experience, and really understands the offense. I expect to see Larry play well Saturday."

"He’s one of the best players I’ve seen work-ethic-wise," safety Sean Richardson said. "Instead of a lab rat, he’s like the film rat. He knows everything. He knows the defense, he controls the defense and he’s always been a great leader telling the defense what to do." "I look for every mistake, every false step, anything that will help me better know my opponent," Marve said. "You can’t get any better unless you know what you’re doing wrong, and the eye in the sky doesn’t lie."
