The comments former Maryland offensive coordinator James Franklin made about the criteria he uses in choosing his assistant coaches at Vanderbilt came as a surprise to me. I always thought Franklin, like a lot of college coaches, was a used car salesman, not a sexist. If you haven't heard, the second-year Vanderbilt coach was chatting up a Nashville radio talk show when the subject of assistant coaches came up. Instead of saying something like, “I took the best guys off Ralph Friedgen's staff and cost him his job,” Franklin said, “I've been saying for a long time, I will not hire an assistant until I've seen his wife.

Vanderbilt coach Gerry DiNardo's decision to kick off to Navy after winning the coin toss was primarily made to get his defense on the field first. But the move may have contributed to place-kicker Rob Chura having his best day.By kicking off, Vanderbilt had the wind at its back to start the game. And with a strong wind blowing, Chura kicked a career-best 51-yard field goal that just got through the uprights.The kick by Chura was the seventh-best in school history and gave the Commodores a 13-0 lead.

Gardening in Eden, by Arthur T. Vanderbilt II. Simon and Schuster. 208 pages. $23. Like travel and wine, fly-fishing and mountain climbing, gardening inspires its most splendid writing through the spirit of the fancy, not its technicalities. This contemplative essay by a New Jersey lawyer / gardener is exemplary in precisely that sense. Though there is a great deal of specific insight here about planting, species, drainage and the like, the genuine joy the book offers is in its celebration of the experience of gardening.

Vanderbilt's commitment to excellence and academics and the chance to coach in the Southeastern Conference helped school officials lure James Franklin away from Maryland to become the Commodores' new coach. Franklin, the offensive coordinator who was in line to succeed Maryland head coach Ralph Friedgen , was introduced Friday as Vanderbilt's third head coach this season. "It was obvious to me right away that this place could be something really special," Franklin said.

To get a grip on the problems with Navy's football team this season, one needs to look at two plays from last week's 27-7 loss to Vanderbilt.The first play came on Vanderbilt's first drive, when tailback Tony Jackson took a handoff and ran through the gut of Navy's defense. After seemingly shifting into another gear, Jackson jetted through the Navy secondary and raced 53 yards, untouched, into the end zone.The comparison play came in the second quarter, when Navy fullback Cleavon Smith ran through a similar hole through the middle of the Vanderbilt line.

Vanderbilt primed Dom Amore Hartford Courant For several years, Vanderbilt has had the reputation of being "the best team never to make the College World Series. " Those ghosts are gone now, after Vanderbilt swept Oregon State to reach Omaha for the first time. And now that they're there, the Commodores are primed to win. Vanderbilt was ranked No. 1 for long parts of the season, but, of course, the length of the season and the top-to-bottom quality of the SEC makes running the table impossible.
