SEC Media Days: Vanderbilt and Bobby Johnson

Posted Jul 28, 2005

HOOVER – Here’s a look at the day Vanderbilt Head Coach Bobby Johnson and the Commodores had at the SEC’s annual Media Day event.

Last season: 2-9

Last game vs. Georgia: 33-3 loss

Series Record: Georgia leads 46-17-2

Most memorable Georgia win: 1983 – All-American Terry Hoage knocks away a Vanderbilt pass near the end of the game to save the win for the Dawgs.

Most painful Georgia loss: 1994 – Ray Goff may have lost his job when Vandy ran up the score on the Dawgs in Athens – on Homecoming, no less.

Starters returning: 13

Best player: Jay Cutler

Biggest Weakness: Depth

2005’s big question: Can anyone win at Vandy?

Inside the numbers vs. Georgia (as seen in the upcoming Dawg Post 2005 Season Preview):


That’s how many consecutive seasons Vanderbilt has ended up with a losing record. Nothing appears to be preventing 2005 from being losing season number 23 in a row.

SEC Media Day’s quote to note:

“Did we underachieve? Obviously – we were 2-9.” – Vanderbilt Head Coach Bobby Johnson’s thoughts on last season’s Vandy team.
