Bruce Feldman: Vanderbilt Could Follow the Stanford Model to Prosperity

1
We'll see how the recruits develop. Who knew outside of a few staffers in Palo Alto that David DeCastro would blossom into a star or that Coby Fleener would? Or Jonathan Martin? People knew Andrew Luck was talented, but could be that special? The other big key, as we've noted from Stanford's rise, is for this group to have the toughness and the cohesiveness to develop together. But there are some encouraging signs that this program can at least have the success Northwestern has had in the past decade, if not reach the level Stanford has. I know that sounds pretty far-fetched, but so did Stanford doing what it has done in the past five years. It's something of a long-shot at Vandy no doubt, given the heft of the SEC football factories, but there is hope. - Bruce Feldman, answering Daniel Marks's Twitter question on Vandy's ceiling with James Franklin as Head Coach.
