Former Vanderbilt head coach Robbie Caldwell.
Eminem said that "opportunity comes once in a lifetime," and former Vanderbilt head coach Robbie Caldwell lived by those exact words during his first and only trip to SEC Media Days.
Caldwell, who took over for Bobby Johnson in the summer of 2010 after Johnson's abrupt retirement, came out of left field to win Media Days—possibly forever.
When asked about his first job, Caldwell was...well...a little graphic.
"My first hourly paying job was on the turkey farm," said Caldwell (via CFN). "I don't know if I could tell you what my job was...I was on the inseminating crew. That's a fact. I worked my way to the top. Best job I ever had—got paid by the hour for the first time. That was about '68, '69. That's what we did every afternoon."
Being on that crew didn't ruin Thanksgiving for Caldwell (even though it probably should have).
It also didn't ruin Media Days.
In fact, Caldwell made Media Days history and set the bar for decades to come.
