Behind-the-scenes look at the Commodores on CBS Sports Network
Oct. 23, 2012
A 30-minute documentary focusing on James Franklin's Commodores in the days leading to the victory over Auburn will be presented Wednesday evening on CBS Sports Network.
A three-person crew from"Yahoo! Presents the Road to Saturday," was embedded with the Commodores for three days as the team prepared for the important Southeastern Conference encounter with Auburn. Producers interviewed Coach Franklin and numerous Vanderbilt student-athletes. The crew also was granted rare behind-the-scenes access to the program, such as shooting position meetings at McGugin Athletics Center, team functions at the hotel one day before the game, and the locker room on game day.
The show will focus attention on Franklin's 18-month effort to change the culture surrounding Vanderbilt football while chronicling the remarkable stories of several Commodore players.
Links to brief two-minute clips from the documentary on Stacy, who rewrote the team's career rushing record during the Auburn game, and Thomas, are currently available at the college football front page of YahooSports.com.
