[quote]Vandy is paying him $3 million a year. What is your definition of set for life? He's set for life at Vandy[/quote]Like I said, no offense to Vanderbilt. It's a fine institution, probably the best university academically in the SEC by far. He's a football coach, not a professor.

Vanderbilt is not gonna pass UGA, Fla and Tenn longterm. That's just not gonna happen.
That said, Ron Franklin is damn refreshing. He's like the superstar athlete who stays in school because he enjoys it, even though the pros are saying he's the number 1 pick in the draft (and a fool for ignorin...

Anyone ragging on Jeremy Hill is nuts. He had a great season. If you look at how LSU ran against TCU and UAB, and then project him as a starter against them, Hill would lead the SEC in yds.
Anthony "Freak" Johnson- yeah, his All-American campaign didn't turn out the way we thought it would. Hope...

Well, yeah, if you assume this is the best Vandy is ever going to be. Too bad for the East that's just not true. Even if Franklin leaves, expectations have been raised. We won't just quietly return to th...

My guess is that students, like the rest of the fan base, have become spoiled. Way too many times you blow off a game because: weak opponent, weather's bad, traffic sucks etc.
Honestly, after the season- how many people skipped the Auburn game because it was rainy and Auburn sucked? That kinda l...

| SEC Rant|| Almost over; check in if your team won the BCS - Scoob on 12/4/13 at 10:21 pm|
This era is coming to an end; the playoff will be weighted towards conference champs (1 SEC team out of 4). We likely won't see another stretch of dominance like we just went through. not just one team (although Bama certainly put an exclamation point on it), but conference-wide: Fla, LSU, and Bama ...

Honestly, while all 3 are likely gone, you could build a case for all 3 returning. Beckham to prove the hip is a non-issue. Landry to... I dunno, set records and win a title (no...

We need some new offensive linemen, for sure. The RBs are usu fighting for their lives back there on handoffs. Losing Bushrod and Nicks has made some holes that need plugging. Hopefully, Armstead will be ready next season.
WRs are gonna be fine; Colston is still a solid possession guy (even with...

Ass-kickings occur in the NFL sometimes. We did the same thing to New England when we won the Super Bowl (I know, not the most positive comparison).

The Ole Miss loss was a disappointment. I was worried about them before the season (and after the Texas game), but felt like with their injuries, we'd handle them pretty easy. Never underestimate the motivation of playing a hated rival (and that...
