For the past month or so, I've been saying we should keep Caldwell if he wins two games in November. That would probably mean beating Wake Forest, which looks at least as bad as we are, and then beating either Kentucky OR Tennessee.
Some people don't like this. Some people think we should win our last three games and probably beat Florida too.
People, do you know the last time Vanderbilt won two games in November?
It was 1995. That was 15 years ago.
Bobby Johnson won three November games in eight seasons as Vandy's head coach. Why should we expect Robbie Caldwell to do the same thing in one season?
In a great post from earlier today, Andrew04, wrote this:
"All you can expect from the coach is to put out the best and most ready team he has, and all you can expect from the players is that they give a maximum effort."
If we win two games in November — and yes, finish 4-8 — then Caldwell indeed put out the best and most ready team he had and all our players gave maximum effort.
And if they do that next season, then we'll have more than four wins.
