VIDEO OF THE DAY

Off the field, Robbie Caldwell has become known for his country style, Southern drawl and quick wit. On the field, he's the man in charge of Vanderbilt football, eager to encourage players and prepared to correct mistakes. Enjoy this clip of Coach Caldwell Wired.




PHOTO OF THE DAY


First Graders at Lakeview Elementary in Roy, Utah, have adopted Vanderbilt University as their college to research this year. The program is modeled after their school motto... "We are going to college!"

Students will be learning some of the Dynamite fight song, and wearing Vanderbilt shirts on Wednesdays.

You can send in your Commodore youngster photos (click here to submit), and I'll post the image in a future edition of Barca Break.




QUOTE OF THE DAY

"He's going to get checked out on Wednesday, he's got an MRI and everything so we'll find out more about what the details are. We have no clue if it was last spring or this fall but all of the sudden it just swelled up." -- Football head coach Robbie Caldwell on Warren Norman's injury (Source: The City Paper)

@sportsguy33 (ESPN.com's Bill Simmons): Was there a better 2-year run of rewatchable movies than Sly Stallone's 1981-82? Nighthawks, Victory, Rocky 3, First Blood. Top that one.
