Re: Donald Fitzgerald OT from Hillsboro commits!

We've often rounded out classes with guys like this: physical specimens with limited football experience. The results vary but if it's going to work, it's usually on one or the other lines. I like taking him. I hope some of the remaining spots go to experienced football players that we're actually c...

Nope.
The recruiting violations and his greasy little PR campaign to deflect it all on Houston Nutt alone would be enough to keep me from wanting him. Calling hookers with the company phone just put it all over the top.

Re: Dimitri Moore named to All-SEC freshman team

I thought he was really struggling in the middle of the year - particularly looked ragged in the Georgia game.
But I will say that he is one of the unsung heroes of the final two games.

Re: UT is having a hard time finding an OC

I love how some pundits are trying to argue that being one or two years removed from the scandal somehow "cleanses" this guy. Nothing washing the dirt off like a year under Lane Kiffin, amarite?

I don't think Tech would have that much trouble moving to a run-oriented spread. Johnson's triple was definitely modified to be more flexible at Tech. Now going to a pure west coast pro style like Dowhower's? Yes, a disaster. If I'm the new guy, I'm keeping some traditional option in my playbook. A ...

rumor on the zone is that they're close to naming "someone" but no one has a clue. The homers on the afternoon show say that it "probably" won't be Freeze but until it comes out otherwise, there's still a chance. They also echoed that he might be HC at Liberty. Both of these ide...

Re: Former Ball State QB Riley Neal on official visit to Vanderbilt

I think it's ok to bring him here for a year. If he can step in and win the job, then that means he's the best we've got. If he can't, still great for depth, which no matter what... we're thin at the position and nobody has experience. Deuce appeals to me the most. I like Hasan's tools, but I'm high...

Re: Former Ball State QB Riley Neal on official visit to Vanderbilt

I watched the ND game and he looked good. The stats were more indicative of a team that was overmatched but he looked like the reason Ball State was in that game.

Re: I think we got a great bowl

Agree.

Great bowl. Further away, but nice payout, good exposure in an area we like to recruit and an interesting opponent.

I won't be able to go at all, but I'm glad we're going.
I hope our crowd shows well.

Re: CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIPS

Conference Championships are typically as meaningless as the conference tournaments are in basketball. They were not created to produce a national champion. And looking at the outlay above of 11-1 teams facing 8-4 teams, they're really not designed to produce the conference champion. That's already ...

Re: Defense

I've yet to see a Drew-coached Vandy team play good defense. Last year, I remember us playing SC later in the season. We were losing much of the game but in the 2nd half started to make a run. For about 10 consecutive possessions, we "really needed to get a stop." I think 9 of those 10 end...

Re: If only instant replay had existed back when these plays occurred ...

Also in that Alabama 2000 game, there was a 2nd half fumble that was not called. It wasn't even close. The ball carrier was still on his feet running when he dropped the ball. The refs just never saw it and then blew the play dead when his progress was stopped a few yards later.

Re: Future QB

Does CDM focus on recruiting quarterbacks as much as he should? Looking at every SEC team's roster, they list 6-7 quarterbacks. UT has eight quarterbacks on their roster. Vanderbilt only had three (four if Deuce hadn't been suspended). Now granted some of these quarterbacks on the other SEC team's ...

I like Wallace. I agree with other posters that mobility will be a nice quality for our qb. And I think that Ludwig knows how to use a mobile qb pretty well. One thing about that JUCO we're recruiting: I understand that his passing stats are not that impressive, but check out some of his video - he'...

Re: CDM a candidate at Colorado?

If he leaves, this is a real indictment of the Vanderbilt leadership which is more precarious than ever with a lame duck AD, no hire in sight for an AD replacement, and the total lack of administrative and possibly board support of football. It makes replacing Mason with a good coach an almost impo...

You can get all indignant over other's opinion of Mason's candidacy, but it is highly unlikely Mason gets an interview with CO. They are supposedly looking a guys like Jim Leavitt and Dana Holgerson and assistants with CO ties. None of the other CO HC candidate lists out there include CDM. This who...
