On campus in Nashville - First-year Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason only wished the Commodores' initial preseason camp could have lasted longer.

Two hours and thirty minutes after the opening whistle blew Thursday, Mason was all smiles, happy with the effort, intensity and energy displayed by his young and eager Vanderbilt squad.

"It was a good day. Just being out here instructing and coaching the guys was fun. We could have went another two hours and I would have enjoyed," Mason told the assembled media afterward.  "I saw a lot of good things. We didn't have a lot of guys on the ground, we communicated well, and I saw some plays being made on both sides of the ball. If we continue to take steps forward like we did today, we're going to be a pretty good team."

Mason pushed the Commodores through a fast-paced session at the John Rich Practice Facility, stressing fundamentals, position instruction and conditioning to the squad for the first 90 minutes. The final hour was spent on scheme development in 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills and special teams work.
