A 4-8 record for the Vanderbilt Commodores in 2015 wouldn’t be any person’s happy zone for a team’s outcome for a season. Kyle Shurmur will have the honor of trying to lead this team to the promised land in 2016. The sophomore will have a lot of work ahead of him though with a schedule that features some very interesting contests including starting against South Carolina in front of a national television audience. The division may be tough and the final game of the season against Tennessee may decide if Vanderbilt goes to a bowl game or not. It all comes down to Shurmur’s right shoulder. Can the sophomore handle that?
