It looks like the rumors about ESPN's basketball version of College GameDay being in Knoxville in mid-January for a VU-UT double-header (men/women) may be true and could be announced as early as today. Stay tuned.
Stacy, VU's second-leading rusher in 2009, suffered a knee sprain in practice on Aug. 13 but recovered faster than expected. The initial time frame for recovery was listed at four-five weeks yet Tuesday he was in pads and participated in drills.
4. Robbie Caldwell, Vanderbilt: Caldwell got the job when Bobby Johnson suddenly retired in July. The Commodores were going to struggle this season regardless of who was the coach. Nine of the 12 teams on the schedule went to bowls last season.
Fisher said Krause, who started Saturday's scrimmage, has opened his eyes more than he anticipated. "He gives us a vertical threat because he's probably the fastest guy of the group," Fisher said. "Matthews and Boyd, are big strong guys. Matthews probably jumped out of the gate and was the best early in camp. I think Boyd has made the most strides later in the camp."
More on Warren Norman:
"He got bumped one time and went down, but we don't know if it was in the spring or this fall or just some old scar tissue worked loose. He's feeling great. You saw him out there running routes."
With the beginning of the season looming later this week, Crystal Lake South offensive tackle Jake Bernstein orally committed to Vanderbilt on Tuesday night. Bernstein, a 6-4, 275-pound senior, chose the Commodores over Minnesota and Colorado.
