Comments

Vanderbilt continues on their course to an 0-10 season. Kentucky isn’t much better but they should be good enough to defeat the Commodores for the fifth straight time. I think Kentucky will just ram the ball down Vandy’s throat for four quarters. The Commodores are not very deep on either line. Vandy’s freshman quarterback Ken Seals appeared to be improving but tossed three interceptions last weekend at Mississippi State. If Seals can put together are great game while the Vandy defense shines, the ‘Dores might be able to steal one. That’s not likely to happen though. I hate to see any team go winless in football. Even teams I don’t like much (and Vanderbilt isn’t one of those).
