Early success

Vanderbilt and the University of Nashville played the first college football game in the state of Tennessee in 1890. [3] In 1894 Vanderbilt was among the seven founding members of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association. [4] Just after the turn of the century, the team enjoyed fairly substantial success, with a composite record of 20-3-2 from 1901-03. [5] Even so, Dan McGugin's arrival as coach from his brother-in-law Fielding Yost's Michigan program in 1904 showed an immediate impact. The 1904 squad outscored its opposition by 474 to four in winning all nine games. [6] McGugin's tenure spanned the years 1904-17 and 1919-34 with a record of 197-55-19 and two national championships. [7] In an effort to create a southern teachers college, the grounds and buildings of the University of Nashville were donated to the George Peabody College for Teachers in 1909. ...

In 1922, Vanderbilt hosted the University of Michigan to inaugurate Dudley Field. The game ended in a 0-0 tie and figures prominently in the program's history. VU football historian Bill Traughber chronicles the event: Vanderbilt Stadium (originally known as Dudley Field) is a football stadium located in Nashville, Tennessee. ...

The game between Vanderbilt and Michigan had a carnival-like atmosphere.
Dignitaries and politicians were invited to participate at Dudley Field, the largest football-only stadium in the South at that time. The guest of honor for the dedication game was Cornelius Vanderbilt, the great-great grandson of the university's namesake.
Accompanied by his wife, Vanderbilt arrived at Nashville's Union Station on the morning of the game, his first trip to the city. The day's first event was a luncheon for the young Vanderbilt couple, which was held at the Hermitage Hotel and hosted by Vanderbilt University Board of Trust.
Thousands of Vanderbilt students and alumni met downtown for a parade with Tennessee Governor Alf Taylor riding in the lead automobile. Decorated in orange and black, their automobile began the parade at Twelfth and Broadway, weaving through the side streets to a reviewing stand at the foot of the Capitol Building.[8]

In 1932, Vanderbilt—at the pinnacle of its athletics dominance in the South[9]—helped found the Southeastern Conference, with Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Auburn, LSU, Mississippi State, Sewanee, Georgia Tech, and Tulane.[10] {{Infobox Person | name = Cornelius Vanderbilt | image = Vanderbilt. ...

Growing difficulty

However, Vanderbilt football has not won a conference championship since the founding of the Southeastern Conference in 1932, and its last winning season was in 1982 under coach George MacIntyre. In its entire history, Vanderbilt has only competed in three bowl games (see below), with a combined all-time post-season record of 1-1-1. The Southeastern Conference (SEC) is a college athletic conference headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, which operates in the southeastern part of the United States. ...


It was in the 1970s and early 1980s that it seemed this trend could be abating, with two of Vanderbilt's post-season appearances coming in 1974 and 1982, and with several near-winning season records.


The last Commodore team with a winning record, the 1982 squad (with a record of 8-4), played in the Hall of Fame Bowl in Birmingham, Alabama. In addition to the school's third all-time bowl appearance, the 1982 team's season-ending win against Tennessee, in which Vanderbilt quarterback Whit Taylor threw for 391 yards, marked a special season -- but a season that proved an exception to years following, when a return to previous levels of mediocrity saw a veritable merry-go-round of head coaches.

From the period 1982 to 2002, when Bobby Johnson was hired, Vanderbilt was led by six coaches, who averaged barely four years per coach.[11]


Recent Years

The Bobby Johnson era

Bobby Johnson was hired in 2002 as the head football coach. At the time, many questioned[citation needed] the University administration's decision to elevate a Division I-AA coach to what many[citation needed] perceive as the nation's premiere college football conference, the SEC. Johnson had previously coached at Furman University, a Southern Conference team, leading the Paladins to the Division I-AA title game in 2001, his final year. Bobby Johnson (born Columbia, South Carolina) is the current head football coach at Vanderbilt University. ... -1...

The same critics that questioned Johnson's initial hiring also derided the loyalty given to Coach Johnson by the Vanderbilt administration after his first three seasons at the school led to three consecutive 2-9 records. During this time, however, Johnson was continuing to recruit players that had been passed over by major-power schools, but who Johnson and his staff believed could be molded into SEC-caliber players.


Radical administrative restructuring

Along with this concerted program-development, Johnson joined Vanderbilt's Chancellor E. Gordon Gee and Vice Chancellor David Williams II in creating what the Administration called "a new culture in college athletics" at Vanderbilt. The University Administration, with Johnson's public support, abolished the Department of Athletics as a separate entity within the University's administrative structure, along with the job of Athletics Director -- a first among universities in a major Division I-A athletic conference. Gordon Gee Elwood Gordon Gee is the current chancellor of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, as well as a professor of law at the universitys law school. ... Athletic director is a position at many American colleges and universities which oversees the work of the coaches and others involved in intercollegiate sports. ...


The Administration's loyalty to Johnson, which had paid dividends in his support for the radical changes in administration of the inter-collegiate athletics program also yielded on-the-field results in Johnson's fourth season at the helm of the Commodores.


Twenty-first Century

In 2005, Vanderbilt finished with a 5-6 record, the program's best finish since 1999. For the first time since 1982, and for the first time in Knoxville since 1975, Vanderbilt defeated its in-state rival, the Tennessee Volunteers, in a thrilling 28-24 victory.
