"I always liked Coach Caldwell and originally thought he would be my position coach if I picked them," said offensive tackle Jake Bernstein (Crystal Lake, Ill./South), Vanderbilt's most recent commit. "Now he will be my head coach. He's different than your average coach. He's laid back, outgoing and very funny. That's what drew me to him initially. I can't wait to be coached by him."
Eddie Foster and Andre Simmons are examples of the good that can come from injured starters in the preseason. Vanderbilt's young defensive backs have filled in for cornerback Jamie Graham (groin) and safety Sean Richardson (turf toe) with the first-unit defense.
Mylon Brown and Jabo Burrow have been competing at left guard throughout preseason practice. Recent events suggest that redshirt sophomore Burrow, a third-year sophomore, has inched ahead of the redshirt-freshman Brown. Both insist that the competition has been healthy and, regardless of who wins the spot, for the betterment of the team.
