re: Music City will take Ole Miss over Vanderbilt - dores97
Now obviously we aren't going to the Music City Bowl since we were there last year, but to the point we don't show up or sell tickets to the bowl games is ridiculous. 2008 Music City Bowl - Vandy vs. BC Attendance - 54,250 (BC only sold 1,500 tickets, so going by your logic Vandy must have had ...

How was the pick 6 against Auburn a bad call again? As I recall the receiver was wide open and the ball was thrown directly to the defensive back 5 yards away. I think that one was on Wallace. [link=(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABlD0qwv8r4)]1:10 mark[/link] ...

re: Will the SEC ever lift its Beer ban that it has for SEC games? - dores97
There is no actual SEC rule about this. Most of the stadiums are state property and most of the states have rules/laws prohibiting alcohol on state property. Vandy has actually sent out surveys to season ticket holders asking if they would be in favor of selling beer in the past. I always checked...

re: 2012 revenues per USA Today - dores97
I know this topic gets beaten to death every year, but ya'll do realize every school reports revenues differently. Lists like these don't really mean a whole lot.

Where did I say you are beneath us? I said you are an average SEC program. I looked it up, we've played 6 times in those 21 years, you won 5. You have a losing record against: Alabama, auburn, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, lsu, Missouri, and Tennessee. Plus you exaggerated your record against ole mis...

He's an Arkansas fan, he and facts don't mix. They'll go on and on about their history and what not but neglect to tell you all of that history was in the SWC. Like I said, average SEC program. Without checking, what are they in wins since joining the SEC? Middle of the pack? Closer to bottom?...

You were only "high up" in your own minds. You are an average SEC program, some good years, some bad. You were just on a program high run, partly due to the rest of the SEC being down (don't get me wrong, we're taking advantage of it too). ...

re: Who lands James Franklin? - dores97
They have broken ground on facility upgrades, including indoor facility. Rumor is (and it's a private school so nothing you hear about salaries can be verified) is that he is getting around $3 million/year now on a long term contract with a $22 million buyout for either side. In other words, if yo...

I know Vandy asks season ticket holders our opinions on it each year in their survey (apparently too many old people still have season tickets).

I don't see how they wouldn't be able to win 10. Look at Arkansas and Georgia. I would pick USC over the either of them. I'm not saying it's a lock or anything, but outside of LSU and Alabama, the SEC wasn't anything special this year....

We're a football school now. Besides, it's way too early to be talking basketball. Nobody cares about basketball until late January anyway. Just win enough to get in the tourney (which we are not on pace to do at this point). And if we do, this will just make the inevitable 1st round loss less...
