Vandy Secondary getting a lot of respect

Two years ago, many around Vandy felt that the secondary was a major weakness so much so that two freshmen played major minutes. What a difference two years makes as D.J. Moore and Myron Lewis have become two of the best corners in the nation. Check out this ranking by The site ranks Vanderbilt's secondary number three in the nation behind only national champion contenders Ohio State and Southern Cal!!! Let's hope Scout is right and the Vandy secondary lives up to the hype. They have the talent that's for sure.

Here is another great link from Chris Low of where he talks to D.J., Coach Johnson, and Broderick Stewart.

Broderick says that as long as he stays healthy, Vandy are going to a bowl. Gotta love the optimism.

D.J. talks about his added role this upcoming season and how he has done more off-season conditioning to prepare.

Great interview with CBJ. I don't love the guy, but you can't knock his character, how much he has improved Vandy football, or the way he represents the university.

The Sports VU Update

Contrary to popular belief, I am still alive. For the past two weeks, I have been leading orientation for first-year Vanderbilt students. We've been working from seven to seven every day, which has made posting somewhat difficult.

All I can say is that I apologize for the site's inactivity and that I can't wait to get back to the keyboard. It's been weird being away from you guys for so long.

With that said, The Sports VU will return better than ever on Monday. So, go ahead and enjoy the rest of the week. I can't wait for the season to begin and I'll see you guys soon.
