Team preview: Vanderbilt
The Blue Ribbon College Football Yearbook previews the 2007 Vanderbilt Commodores, exclusively on Insider.
Bobby Johnson is to frills what the Sahara is to water -- a distant stranger. So, this whole notion of Johnson owning the fifth-longest contiguous tenure among coaches in the SEC sneaks up on people like camouflaged air. "You mean Vanderbilt's coach? Do they even have a coach? I heard something about their athletic department disappearing a few years ago ..." Oh, but it's true. Tennessee's Phillip Fulmer (15 years) remains the dean of a conference that boasts four national championship winners -- Fulmer, Steve Spurrier, Nick Saban and Urban Meyer -- among its head-coaching ranks. Houston Nutt's nine tenuous years at Arkansas is next, followed by Tommy Tuberville's eight seasons at Auburn and six years of Dawg days for Mark Richt at Georgia.
