More drivel from the fan base that cheered an illegal out-of-bounds hit that ended a player's career, in Vanderbilt Stadium.

I wish we could have big pro Vandy crowds at every home game and lots of VU folks at away games. And the band at every game.

Guess there’s not much to talk about as a Wildcrap fan right now. Anybody know how to tell if a teen girl is a Kentucky or Louisville fan? The Kentucky fan is pregnant.

It's pretty simple - put more points on the scoreboard when they come to visit November 13th. None of this matters until they suit up and play.

I don't recall much smack talk from UK or articles like this written after they left Vanderbilt stadium in 2012 with the scoreboard reading 40-0.

Well, at least VU hasn't sold out the stadium ... to groceries:

FD: Unfortunately, there's not going to be LESS sponsorships as time goes by but more. Eventually college uniforms=FB, MBB, WBB, BB- will look like NASCAR drivers' uniforms. Isn't the WNBA already doing this?

Never understood why the University couldn't send a pep band to some of the away SEC games (UK, Ole Miss, UGA)

I know that the band usually takes 1 away game each year either to UT or when UT plays us at home they go to another SEC stadium.

Every other SEC school sends pep band's to most of their away games.

At one time, the band included members who attend Belmont and maybe Lipscomb. Is that still the case? And if it is, maybe it's a liability issue to take non-VU students to away games?

I love the band. Hope they let them play more this fall. The past 2-3 seasons (not counting last year of course) they've only let them play 3 quick songs at halftime.

I believe that they let Belmont, Lipscomb, Trevecca & Nashville State students participate in Marching Band, or at least that is what they used to do.

I know that they were looking to hire a new Assistant Director of Bands... seems like it is a revolving door over there for the past 5-10 years

I think the band would do well to emulate Stanford, The Leland Stanford Junior Universityl Marching Band that is. Virginia, or Rice also have insurgent bands.
