HUNTSVILLE, AL - It's tough to find a positive in a 2-10 season, particularly when the head coach up and leaves a couple of weeks before fall practice. But Vanderbilt has more experience than most when it comes to looking at the bright side.
This year, the Commodores need look no further than the backfield, where running back Norman Warren returns for his second season. If it's anything like his first, Vanderbilt will have one less complaint.
"We look to take (Warren) to another level," said Commodores coach Robbie Caldwell, who replaced Bobby Johnson in mid-July.
Operating in an offense that barely scratched out two touchdowns' worth of points each Saturday - a league-worst 16.3 per game - Norman represented a shooting star in an otherwise long, dark night.
