"Harvard of the Smokies" love that comment. UT using academics as an excuse for poor sports teams while Vandy continues to rise in all sports is funny to me. Maybe the NCAA investigations played a part in that. As a Tennessee taxpayer I'm actually glad the athletic department is funding academics. 

 

Vandy is finally doing the opposite they are starting to use that huge bank account on the academic side and funding the athletics department..

Vandy gets shafted. I love my  hometown of Nashville but It's freezing cold in December and Vandy deserves better. Also hurts with recruiting since no matter the record they will always get stuck with cold weather bowls.

I don't see how you can say Vandy's Schedule was weak? They played the conference schedule the SEC gave them.  Northwestern is better than 95% of the rest of the SEC non-conference games. 

 

Your right the only reason I see Franklin interview at TN is to use it against them in recruiting. UT would be foolish to go after him as I think VU would open up the multi-million dollar trust fund to prevent him from going there.

The anti-SEC press is just waiting for Mizzou or A&M to knock off one of the big SEC teams. So they can proclaim the SEC as Weak. Funny thing is A&M's best player has never played a down of Big XII football.

 @SevierVol His comments were not nearly as jerky or arrogant as JP made them out to be. All he said was it was a surprise and most coaches just wait until gameday to have this conversation. He was complimentary of Freeze for calling. Also he didn't even mention Bo Wallace's sister or all help he provided their family.  At one time Spurrier didn't have his resume either, he was starting in college football at Duke and built his resume.

 @SevierVol They didn't have to travel far and this was a real chance to beat UK. WKU has a huge alumni numbers in KY. Plus more UK fans attended because their team was an unknown they still had hope for the season.

the only school I see going after Franklin is Tennessee. Problems are Vol fans hate JF. Vandy will triple his pay before letting him go to UT. TN financial issues with buy outs ect  will hinder that. Ark is a possibility but JF seems very happy proving his detractors wrong at Vandy

The starting times of these games needs to be factored all of these noon start times hurt attendance.

It's going to take an act of God for Vandy to ever get a CBS or ESPN game. Only 3 real SEC games and they still get shafted.

The state of Texas as the best High school football recruiting grounds are a myth. Fact in 30 years the State of Florida high schools had feed 10 National Champions 1/3 (UF, FSU, Miami) in that time frame Texas has produced one. Georgia and Louisiana also rank high in producing players.

Are they gonna make a T-shirt after they beat Auburn in Basketball? SEC rule #1 only celebrate beating Kentucky in Basketball, Celebrating beating them in Football is Pathetic and I'm a Vandy fan. Of course we are the only team to beat them in Basketball. Could be worse You could be UT and lose to them in everything.

The actions by Grantham don't surprise me but that fight in the lake was beyond disturbing. The guy could have drowned and the Cop did little to stop it.

You didn't note it but Vandy lost the turnover battle 3-0. How many times does that happen. The 1st was your typical "screw Vandy" call that other 13 schools never get against them. The 2nd was on a fake punt and the 3rd almost cost them the game. Good job over coming bad calls and miscues.

 @memphispete interesting you mention Vandy and Missouri as being much worse and then defend TN's schedule as being tough. Vandy has lost 4 games (UGA, FLA, USC and Notrhwestern) vs 3 top 11 teams and Northwestern is 6-1. Missouri has lost 3 games vs top 11 teams (Bama, USC and UGA) and to Vandy. How is UT that much better they have beating NC st ,GA st and Akron. NC st was the only good win they have.

Remember a Vandy player making a  "suplex" tackle in the 90's. The size of the 2 players was a major factor in both situations. It looked much worse than it was in reality. Suspending a player that excited to be in a big national TV game does nothing to prevent future incidents.

It very unfair to judge Chizik and not include the year he had Cam Newton. It wasn't all Cam that season he was the biggest cog in the machine but not the only one. Chizik is an excellent coach IMO.

Mizzou had trouble controlling the line of srimmage vs Vandy. Vandy was a much deeper team and it showed late. Vandy owned the 2nd half outside of one breakdown which went for most of MU yardage in the 2nd half. Mizzou fans: What is the shaking of the keys meaning??
