He is really giving credit to Vanderbilt Next ... it's wow, he knows stuff that really doesn't matter but it is really im...

Re: Free link to PAC-12 network

Walton hardly talks about the game. He is in charge of the unrelated trivia show. He spends the night telling us how smart he is, what books he has read, commenting on social issues. How does a discussion of a Joan Baez concert help us understand what is happening on the court. Ouch, not for me.

Re: Chancellor Zeppos shares some thoughts on the AD search

The Board determines how funds are allocated. It seems that building new residence halls has been their priority, plus improving Vandy's academic ranking. Zeppos can only follow what the Board decides. Despite the billion dollar endowment, much of the endowment is restricted, for example, to scholar...

Re: OT: Damian Jones Starting for the Champs

Damian is only shooting 85% from the field through the first four games!!!!!!!! :D :D Dunks and put-backs are what he does.
He still needs to improve his team defense and rebounding. So far this year the Warriors love him.

Wow, something wrong with this program!!!!! I strongly disagree.
If he has a concussion he should not play. Think of the players who have permanent brain damage from too many concussions.

Re: OT: Damian Jones Starting for the Champs

Damian has the size and athleticism to be an elite center. I watched the entire game with OKC. Last night he went against Stephen Adams, who is a strong, physical player. Adams is vastly improved since I first saw him. Damian sometimes looks lost out there. He still is not instinctive and does not p...

If you are referring to Mason, he will be back next year. Williams likes him. The new AD will not be on the job in time to fire Mason before next season.

Re: Georgia trounces Vandy, and thoughts

The TV announcers said that the average weight of the Georgia offensive line was more than the Atlanta Falcons. I don't remember their average weight, but it was something like 325-330 pounds. Someone please correct me if I am wrong. Our defensive line was, what, maybe 35-40 pounds less than the Geo...

Re: Band??

The bands from the historic black colleges sure know how to put on a show. They are so entertaining, with their quick marching and strutting. The total opposite of the Texas A & M band, which I find boring (although many seem to like it).

Re: In case you were wondering about Yanni Wetzell...

Can he defend the post and rebound? That's what the team needs. You raise valid questions. Recently we have had some physical specimens who were not SEC caliber players. Other necessary qualities include quickness, foot speed, court awareness, tenacity, fearlessness, as well as other qualities. I h...

How good is Nesmith? Will he be starting within a short time after the season starts? To me he is intriguing and the most unknown of the Vandy players.

Re: I've seen enough of Mason

I like Mason. I think he's done a few good things that many other VU coaches haven't. Went to a bowl - finished a season at .500. Beat UT twice. Not saying I'm happy with today but I'm not going to say Mason is worthless either. SCAR looked pretty good today. They're better than us. But if Mason is...

Re: Game of the day--Old Dominion beats Va Tech (#13)

How about West Point taking #5 Oklahoma into overtime in Norman?
Or Texas Tech leading #15 Oklahoma State in Stillwater?
Or Kentucky beating #14 Miss State?

Yes, Old Dominion over VaTech was the most shocking of all.

Now 56-3. Will Nebraska be looking for a new coach sooner, or later? This will take them to 0-3.

Re: An invitation from Zeppos seen on twitter

Maybe because of years of frustration we sure do have some cynical fans. On this board there have been numerous complaints that Zeppos doesn't care, even though he goes to many games. Zeppos' reaching out has to be a positive sign. Let's not respond with hostility. Maybe the lack of stadium upgrades...

Re: Saturday Down South: ND coach blasts VU for 'bad football'

He says it is legal. Then he says it is bad football, whatever that means.

How about the constant holding by his linemen? That is not legal. Is it also bad football?

How many players played

It seems to me that in the first three games we got better as the game progresses. One reason might be is that we have more depth and are playing more players. If true, then the players may be more rested by the third and fourth quarters. Early in the ND game I thought ND lines were pushing ours aro...
