HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - New Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason has what he wanted: Lots of competition among the quarterbacks.
Mason said Monday at Southeastern Conference media days that three-game starter Patton Robinette probably has an edge over the other five passers in the battle for the starting job going into preseason camp. That group includes LSU transfer Stephen Rivers and redshirt freshman Johnny McCrary.
Mason says his timetable for picking a starter is simply ''the first game.''
He said you can't get six quarterbacks enough practice repetitions but you can ''create competitive situations.'' Mason is trying to continue the program's success under James Franklin.
He describes Vandy as a team of ''no-name young men who have a chance to do something great.''
