Mike Wright

I really AM FOCUSED on US (VU), but I was just curious and looked it up. Mike rushed 5 times for 95 yards in State's win yesterday. Was he playing QB or RB? Anyone know? Totally happy with Swan, Seals and company, but do wish Wright all the best. I think he was a strong leader and a fine young man.

Re: Please help ID two Vandy players

Tommy Springer IS NOT in the photo. I went to Junior High with him -- he had a big afro when he played at Vandy. One could be James Williams as mentioned in the thread. The photo isn't PRE 1970 as you can see 2L and 3L in the background. The don't look tall enough to be John Sneed and Carl Crain fro...

Re: Another portal pickup: Jacob Humphrey, UMass-Lowell

We played them a 3 game set here in 2018 (sweep). Corbs (from New England) must be familiar with them.

At MEMPHIS

This may have already been posted -- if it was, I missed it. I figured we'd have a return game this season against the Tigers. On their website/schedule it says they host us on December 23. Sure would like to get some payback SV#

Re: Two good days for Brandt

Thanks for this update -- I'll be checking on him the remainder of the weekend. I'd love for Brandt to have another crack at AUGUSTA. Would a victory this weekend secure an invitation to the Masters? Or is an invitation based on other criteria?

Re: Chase Burns in the portal

Maybe a little truth to the last post, at least on the UT side. My thinking is that he is using the portal as a "ploy" to get more NIL bucks from someone in Vile Nation. My guess is that he gets it and stays at UT. (sort of like the Tyrin Lawrence situation with our men's basketball)

Anyone received their tickets yet??

Ordered my 3 season tickets on Monday afternoon. Have the confirmation e-mail. It's 10:40pm on Thursday night and NO TICKETS HAVE BEEN RECEIVED FROM VANDY. Should I be worried? Has anyone received theirs? Just wondering if I should remain patient or PANIC!! AD*

In Corbs We Trust!

Wow! What a great series win! I've been following the board and some of the criticism of Coach Corbin that goes along with our frustration over hitting, fielding and pitching . . . . after 20 plus years I think I've learned that we have one of the, if not the BEST coach in college ball. What a great...

Re: Today's Starter?

I thought Ryan G pitched very well. Error possibly cost him 4 strong shutout innings. Corbs said that they may look at him as a starter going forward.

Re: Incredible comeback gives VU Bowling National Championship

Exciting evening of bowling. The leadoff gal was in the ZONE!! Another great comeback tonight after the VandyBoys spotted SC 4 in the first, but hung in there and finished them off 8-5! AD*

Just curious. Does anyone know in what capacity Mississippi State is using Mike Wright this spring? QB? WR? ???

Re: Did I miss something?

Sort of . . . articles in the hard copy of The Tennessean are always a day late. There are two articles about the Georgia series (one at the link below) in todays internet version of The Tennessean (both pretty detailed). Those will likely run in Tuesday's hard copy . . . a day late as usual. The da...

Lipscomb Reschedule???

Vandy & Lipscomb are both OFF next Tuesday, March 28. Wonder if they will try and reschedule. If First Horizon isn't available just play it at The HAWK or at Ken Dugan Field. Hope they will try to get it in . . .

Re: Stute into the portal

Per the timing of Stute entering the portal . . . who actually knows? . . . . but WBB player, Bre Alexander did the same last season and did not play in the WNIT. I would guess that Miles entering the portal was likely well known within the team and probably even discussed with the staff. Having alr...

Re: Think this is it for Kermit

CKS was 4-1 vs MTSU in his Vandy career. The one loss in December of 2012 was at Bridgestone Arena when MTSU ended the game on a 16-3 run to win 56-52.

This is good stuff. Watch it if you haven't. As a high school coach the past 21 years (not basketball) I really appreciate the things he says, and insight he gives, in this interview. Sounds like he knows what he is doing. No doubt in my mind . . . the Coach WANTS to WIN . . . . maybe even more than...

Re: dumb question...

Not a dumb question . . . every team has three "permanent" teams that we play home/away each season (ours are Tennessee, Kentucky & Florida) which equals 6 games out of the 18 conference games. That leaves 12 games to schedule from the remaining 10 conference teams. A team "rotate...
