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

Bragging about not selling your allotment two out of 5 years. Nice.

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.

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...

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.

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). ...

They have broken ground on facility upgrades, including indoor facility.

In other words, if yo...

I don't think I would laugh too hard. You're AD just posted the accounting differently this year so you would look better. Laugh away but they are still ahead of you.

You do realize that your AD just changed the way your reported your revenue don't you? State didn't actually increase by that much.
That's why these reports are generally worthless. Each school does their accounting differently....

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 think they might be the only one who could get away with it though since it is a private school. Most of the stadiums are owned by public institutions ...

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.
