No. 14: Vanderbilt Commodores

2014 Finish: 3-9, 0-8 SEC, 7th in SEC East
Key Losses:DL Vince Taylor, LB Kyle Woestmann, OL Andrew Bridges, FB Kellen Williams
2015 Recruiting Class: 43rd in nation (15 commits)
2015 Prediction: 7th in SEC East

It was a tough first season in Nashville for Derek Mason, and things aren’t going to get much easier in 2015. Although the second year for a head coach usually shows some improvement, every team in the SEC East is going to be better than last year.

As Mason’s recruits begin to filter in, things will improve, but the issue of quarterback play and line of scrimmage aren’t going to be solved this year.

The Dores may have a shot at one SEC win/upset this season, but beyond that it’s going to be another frustrating year for Vanderbilt fans.
