"I really saw that transition was because of what he did off the field," Carta-Samuels said. "So learning from him, in about week eight last year I started doing what he did and I think the light really came on for me about week 11. At the start of spring ball, I’m about where I want to be."

Dores to the Chick-fil-A Bowl?

8

When it comes to the last few bowls, Vanderbilt becomes an interesting team. The Commodores are one of the hottest teams in the SEC and they could be up for the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Why? Well, the Chick-fil-A Bowl might not want another South Carolina-Clemson matchup. That means the Gamecocks could slip to the Gator Bowl. Also, could the Music City Bowl find itself in a position to take a 6-6 Ole Miss team over an 8-4 Mississippi State team after the Rebels blew the Bulldogs out? It's possible. …

DeBusk said Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch on Monday evening alerted the UT Police Chief Troy Lane and football coach Derek Dooley about Bray's alleged involvement in two incidents. "We made them aware that he was a suspect in an incident — in two incidents," DeBusk said. Rausch alerted Dooley and the UT police chief because "we have a very good working relationship with UT," DeBusk said, and also to determine Grandinetti's status with the university.

"Mike is the best of the best," said Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin. "He's one of the most remarkable kids I've ever been around." Carl Michael Yastrzemski was a rookie 51 years ago en route to the Hall of Fame. His son, Mike, made it to Triple-A. Grandson Mike is called by Corbin "the face of Vanderbilt baseball," not because he'll eventually play professionally with the ceiling of David Price, but because of who he is and how is part of the Yastrzemski baseball legacy. Last summer, Billy Beane advised Mike: "Don't worry about the Draft, don't worry about fulfilling the family name, when you get that Vanderbilt degree you will be free."

"Three long, anxious years went into that decision," Corbin said. "I love grass and I’m not a turf guy. But I think turf is a whole lot different now than it was five years ago. This comes with a lot of investigation. ... It is one of those things that I felt it suits Vanderbilt. It might not suit other people but it does Vanderbilt. But it came with a lot of anxiety, I can tell you that."

I’m not really sure. I’ve heard people say that I play a little like Nene because he’s just a strong, physical big guy who likes to play in the post. He likes to play close to the basket and is good with sealing his man. He is a really good player and he plays very strong. I also see a little of Serge Ibaka in my game as well. I would say that my game is a combination of both players.

Tim Fugger, DE-OLB, Vanderbilt -- Fugger ranked in the top 10 in the SEC last year in sacks (8) and tackles for loss (13.5). He complimented his natural pass-rushing skills by turning in a complete pro day workout. He was fast (a 4.56 40), strong (29 reps on the bench) and explosive (34-inch vertical jump). He then looked terrific after being put through a battery of linebacker and defensive end drills. Fugger has positioned himself to be selected somewhere in the middle of the draft's final day.

On matching up with – or at least containing – Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, getting him to foul out with only 16 minutes of play and four shot attempts (five points) in the SEC final. Kidd-Gilchrist also fouled out and scored eight points in UK’s 83-74 win on Feb. 25 win in Lexington. He was held to four points on 1-of-4 shooting with three fouls in UK’s 69-63 win on Feb. 11 in Nashville … "Well, Jeff Taylor is pretty dang good. He was having to work on both ends because Jeff Taylor is a great player, too. Jeff is probably one of the few guys in college basketball that can athletically match up with that kid. (Gilchrist) is an unbelievable athlete, an unbelievable player and an unbelievable competitor. But Jeff Taylor is one of the few guys that can physically and athletically match up with him and not be inferior. And so that was probably why we had a little bit more success at that position than maybe some other people did."

"My favorite college moment was my junior year," said Price. "We had a walk-on named Jason Cunningham. He walked-on my sophomore year. He would throw in inter-squad games and was out there eating up innings giving guys more looks and more at-bats in those type games. He didn't quit. He was not an SEC pitcher by any means. He is no longer playing baseball. Probably no scouts even talked to him. 
"Jason was a guy that never gave up and got a chance to pitch in the SEC Tournament game against Mississippi State. He threw three innings for us. It was one of the first games he pitched with so much meaning. Jason went out and threw three zero's. I watched him come off that field and knew how much work he had put in. He never envisioned himself to be in that situation. That was probably my favorite moment in college."
