Re: Confirmed: Andy Ludwig going back to Utah

My Spidey-senses kind of told me last fall something like this was going to happen, even though I had nothing to base it on. I don't know what's behind it, but Ludwig (A) is losing a trusted senior QB, (B) has been kind of a nomad and has never stayed in one place too long, and (C) is hopping into o...

Ke'Shawn Vaughn makes ESPN.com's All-Bowl team

Right up there with Trevor Lawrence and Quinnen Williams... Shares running back duty with Texas A&M's Trayveon Williams... One of the SEC's most dynamic newcomers this season, Vaughn was sensational in Vanderbilt's 45-38 loss to Baylor in the Academy Sports + Outdoors Texas Bowl. He rushed for 2...

Re: Ke'Shawn Vaughn confirms he's coming back!

A healthy Ke'Shawn for the whole season might be worth as much as 2-3 additional wins next seasons.

Re: Baylor site has a deep stats breakdown on the bowl game if any Vandy fans have interest.

Vandy is a good team but who is the pass rusher or run stopper that is going to cause the disruption up front when the offense goes with spread formations and tries to block 5 on 5 or 6 on 6? I think Vandy matches up against pro style and heavy sets much better than spread as it allows team defense...

OT: Holgorsen to Houston... ?

Houston has hired West Virginia's Dana Holgorsen as head coach... a guy who's had success over eight years at WVU, jumping ship to a non-Power 5 school? It brought to mind that Holgorsen was rumored to be a candidate at Vandy eight years ago, when Vandy hired James Franklin. Both were assistants at ...

Re: Mo Hasan, Duece Wallace

Mo Hasan was hurt, and if Shurmur had had to sit for a down, Allen Walters would have been the sub (or perhaps they could have gone Wildcat for just one play). But Shurmur never got hurt, and Walters, by some accounts the heir apparent, managed to get through his redshirt season without ever taking ...

Vandy falls to Baylor, finishes 6-7: Thoughts

Well, they say no one plays any defense in the Big XII... and they don't. But what they do have is some pretty powerful, explosive offenses, and (as I said yesterday) if you're going to beat one of them, you have to play a little defense. Vandy didn't, and is still looking for its first winning seas...

Jay Cutler: Your school records are about to fall

Kyle Shurmur already has the school records for career TD passes with 63, but unless Vandy goes to a ground-only attack Thursday against Baylor, he is almost surely going to break the following school records held by Jay Cutler: - Career passing yards: 8697 (Kyle needs 118 to tie) - Career completio...

Mason: A different approach to bowl practices vs. 2 years ago

Bowl games give the team 15 extra practices... Mason said he used the first five or six of those practices to give younger players some opportunities to show what they could do. In the midst of those practices came some final exams, and Mason made sure the players were able to focus on the exams, &q...

The 2018 team has won a place in my heart

After the South Carolina loss I didn't think Vandy would make a bowl; and after the Kentucky loss, the team was in danger of losing the fan base. They danced on the edge of not making a bowl, but then pulled it out in grand style. In the first half of the season I think we all thought the team could...

Re: All I want for Christmas

There once was an AD named Fulmer
Who hired a coach from "Dumb and Dumber";
The fans were deluded,
But now have concluded
That losing to Vandy's a bummer.
