    Nashville, Tenn. -- The 2012 SEC football season has finally arrived.

    Starting tonight, the Southeastern Conference begins what it hopes is another championship journey, as South Carolina and Vanderbilt hit the field to begin the year. The SEC Digital Network (myself and @SEC_Sean) is in attendance, soaking in the atmosphere in Nashville as we await opening kick. There is a major buzz here, both for tonight's game and the future of the Commodore program. Behind second year head coach James Franklin, Vanderbilt has encouraged its fans to "Anchor Down", as they look to go to a bowl game for the second year in a row.

    In the photos below, you can get a good look at both Vanderbilt Stadium, and the atmosphere surrounding it.
