Re: The three-point streak is over.

Coach and current players are right to care about getting waxed in the game and sucking in general and not about an irrelevant streak. It's a fluky unimportant footnote. Probably the most interesting thing about it is that we're kind of a below average program that managed do do something noteworthy...

Re: This board has gone off the left end of the world...

I remember when I was at Vandy 30 years ago I met the first openly racist individuals I had ever encountered. I was shocked that they would say some of the stuff that they said out loud. Somehow we've regressed over the years since then, and that bullshit is just normal now. Congratulations, scumbags.

Re: Got to Go After Leach--NOW!!

Aren't there any non-scumbags out there who are also competent coaches? I'd rather not choose one or the other.

Re: Looking for some gameday advice

All right, got tickets in Section C, Row 38. That was closest available, looks pretty good. Like I said, I'm old and can't remember my last game 25 years ago - are these bleacher-type seats? Like basically your seat number is a certain number of inches on a piece of metal without a physical barrier ...

Re: Looking for some gameday advice

Appreciate the advice so far. I'm not all that fragile about interacting with opposing fans, just figured everything equal I'd sit on the Vandy side, which it sounds like is C-E.

Is closer better, or is there a sweet spot for viewing that's a bit further up?

When will tickets go on sale?

Looking for some gameday advice

Looks like I'm going to attend my first Vandy football game in 25 years, first ever as a paying member of the public. Kentucky game November 16. When will single game tickets go on sale? Looks like in past years tickets for the first few games of the season would go on sale in early August, with tic...

Re: Kyle Wright on the mound tonight vs. Marlins

Pitched a good game. Six innings, two earned, one walk. It fell apart for him a bit when McCann left the game. Hopefully his stint on the injured list will be short. I watched a lot of MLB Network over the offseason, and I can vouch that Vandy and Corbin are household names in the baseball world, no...

Re: Jon Rothstein: Vandy-Stackhouse working on contract

I like it. I really haven't heard any other realistic names that I was that excited about through this process, and really the unrealistic names have mostly not been that exciting either. Whether it works out in the end or not is anybody's guess, but it's splashy, and that's good. My biggest concern...

Re: Dansby homered

Sadly, the real Braves are not being masterfully guided to victory like my OOTP Braves. Hopefully, Wright can turn it around for 'em on national TV in prime time tonight. FWIW, the game thinks he should be struggling in AA right now.

Dansby homered

...In the game of Out of the Park Baseball I just played. Two run shot. Flowers was on base.

And then two minutes later, Dansby homered in real life. Two run shot. Flowers was on base.

Re: Dawkins getting more mentions today

I wasn't familiar with Matta's story until reading about him today. Seems like the last couple years he has flirted with some other teams and maybe left folks feeling like he was just dicking around and not really interested in returning to coaching. I haven't come across anything that suggests his ...

Re: Kyle Wright on Atlanta's major league roster, in starting rotation

I hope so. Some guys (Freeman, Albies, Markakis) had career-best years last year. I hope that's sustainable. I do like Acuna dropping to the 4 hole. The kid's legit. I hope so, too. I feel pretty good about the lineup and the bench. I like Ender and Ozzie platooning the leadoff spot with Acuna gett...

Re: Kyle Wright on Atlanta's major league roster, in starting rotation

Yeah, they seem to be putting a lot of hope in prospects taking another step forward this year. That's a big ask two years in a row, even with the quality they have in that regard. Not too late to sign Kimbrel. Maybe today's the day.

Re: Great piece on Walker

Nonsense. Instead of second and third with the pitcher on deck and two out it would have been first and second with the pitcher on deck and two out. Maybe he would have pitched to Culberson instead of walking him to get to Newcomb or maybe not - who knows. Bottom line is he could have gotten out of ...

Re: Dansby with partially torn ligament in his hand

Yeah, it sucks. I was tuned in during his at-bat last night, and I noticed that he had a strange look on his face between pitches - like something terrible just happened. I hope it doesn't end up being serious, but it sounds like the post-season is in real doubt for him this year.
