Vanderbilt News Items: New Unis and More
The new look will be unveiled at the Vanderbilt Barnes and Noble Bookstore on July 11th from 6pm to 8pm. The big question, of course, is how radical is this design going to be? Nike has produced dozens of new designs for schools all over the country in the past couple of years and all have been entirely modern and futuristic. With the change in commitment to football excellence that the Commodores have been going through, it isn't unrealistic to expect a complete redesign which is guaranteed to be in equal quarters loved by some and hated by others. We will, of course, have more on this as and when it becomes available.
The second news item of note today is that Vanderbilt's position on the Rant Sports preseason ranking has been released. The 2012 Commodores find themselves right in the middle of the rankings list at number 62 in the country. Worth noting is that Vanderbilt is tipped as having the possibility of surprising this year, and that with the schedule being tilted in their favor 7 wins is not out of the question. The offense is praised for both its stability and numerous playmakers, noting that the receiving corps in particular will be a real strength this season.
A final news piece of note is a bleacher report article naming the top QB/WR tandems in the SEC. With 14 teams now in the league it is good to see the Commodores getting some national attention as the Jordan Connection (Rodgers to Matthews) is picked as the number eight combo in the league. With the expected jump Rodgers will make going into his senior year and the game breaking ability of Matthews (the article tabs him as one of the best wide outs in the entire league) it is highly expected Vanderbilt will be able to keep the offense, and the scoreboard, ticking this fall.
