The historic Vanderbilt University is not only renowned for its place in academic history, in 1890 Vanderbilt University played in the first college football game in the state of Tennessee against the University of Nashville. Since then the Vanderbilt University football program has grown and developed into the NCAA Division-I Southeastern Conference East Division Commodores football team that it is today. Although like many small private schools the football program has had growing pains, the Vanderbilt Commodores are emerging as a competitive football team in one of the most competitive football conferences in the nation. Despite their struggles as a team the Commodores have accumulated an impressive 13 Conference Titles and can claim 30 All-American players.
The current Vanderbilt Commodores Head Coach Bobby Johnson has made radical changes in the football program since he joined the Commodores staff in 2002 and from what appears to be the trend, the changes are paying off. The 2008 season was a winning one for the Vanderbilt Commodores and it was capped off by a crowd-pleasing performance at the Music City Bowl where the Commodores beat Boston College 16-14. The Music City Bowl had been the Vanderbilt Commodores' first postseason appearance since 1982 when they played in the Hall of Fame Bowl losing to Air Force 28-36.
Currently there are 16 former Vanderbilt Commodores roster members in the NFL a number that current Commodores roster members like Mackenzi Adams and Larry Smith hope to increase. Commodores fans are eager to see how the these two quarterbacks will do this season as they battle for a starting position.
