Robbie Caldwell Is Here To Stay

…I don’t think I understood a single thing he said.  Awesome.

Robbie Caldwell’s star continues to rise.  On July 14th, former Vanderbilt Head Coach Bobby Johnson decided to retire from the sport, leaving Caldwell to become the interim coach for the 2010 season.  Caldwell, who had previously worked with the offensive line before becoming an assistant coach, was promised “every opportunity to win the head coaching job,” which honestly sounded like a lot of bull.  But bull it was not, and win the position he did, even before playing a game.

Caldwell’s biggest victory to date, was winning over the press at the SEC Media days.  With his stories of previous jobs (from driving a tractor to inseminating turkeys,) and his self deprecating humor, he made a fan of most everyone in the room, and especially those of us that run ridiculous sports news web sites.  So, when Vanderbilt decided to remove the interim tag from Caldwell’s job title and rework a contract, all of us at KSR rejoiced.  Forgive us if we’re a little sluggish this morning, we hit the bars pretty hard last night.  Fortunately, it appears as if no turkeys were harmed in the making of our celebration.
