Re: Recruiting Radius 5 hrs. Will it Work?

This is really nothing to waste any breath or bandwidth over. Of course you will concentrate heavily on your home turf, as all schools do. You will try to foster close relationships with high school coaches in the South and adjoining states-- again, as all schools do. But does that mean you will not...

Re: Adam Sparks leaving the Vandy beat

I give him a solid "A" for his coverage, and The Tennessean kudos for giving him leeway to cover the Dores well. I wasn't impressed with him at first, but his diligence, fair coverage and professionalism won me over. With him, the beat was in good hands. If only he had been able to cover more wins! ...

Re: a Recruiting key gone to Texas

What this story leaves out is that Searels is going to work for Jason Grooms, for whom she worked at Vanderbilt for the last couple of years. Grooms, who was Director of Football Operations at Vandy under Derek Mason, took the job under Sarkisian at Texas last month and is building his staff at Texa...

Khari Blasingame tells Auburn fans what to expect with Derek Mason as DC

“We tried to match his intensity and energy,” said Khari Blasingame, now a fullback with the Tennessee Titans, “but I don’t know if that’s even possible.”... "They (Auburn) are going to be expected to be detail-oriented, and they have to be the same guy every day," Blasingame told Auburn Undercover...

Re: Greatest opposing player ever to play at Vanderbilt Stadium?

Great job, you guys, thanks for all the responses. I agree with those who say Herschel Walker was the best college player ever, and he had a great appearance at Vandy in 1981 and a decent pro career. But even though Peyton Manning's two appearances in Nashville were less than great, I still argue th...

Re: Greatest opposing player ever to play at Vanderbilt Stadium?

Archie Manning probably belongs on the list too. I remember seeing him defeat a pretty good Bill Pace team in a night game at the Dud.

Greatest opposing player ever to play at Vanderbilt Stadium?

Who would you guys say is the greatest individual player ever to make an appearance at Vanderbilt? Here are my criteria: 1. A non-Vanderbilt player who actually played in a game at Vanderbilt Stadium. 2. Not necessarily the greatest individual performance at our stadium, but the one who went on to d...

I'm not much of a Jim Rome fan, but he did a great job of asking questions and letting Lea really open up, and the result was a very insightful conversation! Hopefully it will be archived soon at this website...

Re: Spring practice schedule released yet?

Coach Mason liked to get things started in late February. Obviously that's not going to happen. With so many things in flux, I am guessing a start in late March. And it's all dependent on Covid, as someone else pointed out. Last season I believe Vandy was the only SEC school to have any spring pract...

Re: Coach Lea on Finebaum: 3:30 CT

One big difference I hear between Lea and previous VU coaches... Most of them (especially the Bobby Johnson staff) emphasized how FEW college players would get to the NFL. If you don't get to the NFL, they would say, you will still have a degree that will last you a lifetime. But Lea seems to emphas...

Re: OT: Super Bowl halftime

My favorite large venue concert at VU was Pink Floyd at the Dud in the 90's (1994?)... The Pink Floyd concert turned out to be the band's last tour ever, and what a spectacle it was! I didn't see it in Nashville but caught it in Atlanta. I remember the Tennessean review making some snarky comment l...
