Move far enough away from a mountain range and only the peaks are visible. With the benefit of lengthy perspective, the valleys disappear — leaving only the majesty of the summits in view. Vanderbilt football — certainly in the last 40 years or so — has seen a lot of valleys with precious few peaks. No matter. More than 120 years have passed since they started throwing the pigskin around West End, and there were lofty moments along the way. Enough to fill a book, even. Noted Nashville sports historian Bill Traughber is out with his latest effort — Vanderbilt Football: Tales of Commodore Gridiron History — and it hits all the happy moments: Dan McGugin becomes a legend, Vandy upsets Alabama, the old hidden ball trick beats LSU. You get the idea. Traughber’s chocked his tome full of archival photos and newspaper clippings, interviews with the precious few folks still living who remember the great Vandy teams. (The cynical will note the last great moment in ’Dore history Traughber takes on is the 1982 Hall of Fame Bowl; cynics get no seat at Dudley Field.) Traughber will sign his book at the new Barnes & Noble/Vanderbilt Bookstore in the former Borders on West End from 8:30-10:30 a.m., before Vandy kicks off its last home game of the season against Kentucky at 11:21. If things go right, Traughber may have to start working on a new chapter.
