Tough loss ... but at least you scored :)

Vandy down 59 - 0 with 3 minutes left ---- I think it is too late for a comeback  :)

lol, we were due. Our second half scoring hasn't been anything to write home about for awhile.

I do like Derek Mason. Arkansas is now the Vanderbilt of the West. No offence.

haha ... you will never hurt my feelings - this is just entertainment.  Next week the players won't remember it ---- possibly because they were hit so often in the head they won't remember much of anything.  AL total offense 670 yards; Vandy's 70.  Joke's on them - think of how tired they must be!!!! :)

When we play Alabama,  the score is probably going to be close to the same.

Today Vandy's scoring was consistent in all quarters :)

When playing Alabama, remember to keep your coaches and managers hydrated and rested -- it takes a lot of energy to pull your young, strong players back onto the field after halftime!

Damn right we scored!  ;)  I had to think that 43 points in regulation ought to be enough to win but with team, guess not.

Don't worry, we won't score against Bama either.

What kept us from scoring was poor field position --- if we could have started our every drive on their 2 yard line, we could put points on the board!  :)

tough one man, sorry

Hey, credit Alabama ..... absolutely deserved this score.  But the Vandy men were brave and played their best ... we had few injuries, no fatalities and none were captured!  :)

Did Vandy take Arkansas' "claim to fame spot" in the SEC record book in "Yards Rushed Against?"  Did it top Auburn's record against us last year?

In line with the Demozette's policy of making the UA a directional school, BB may have been pointing to UAB.

Yep we got our GPA up to record levels and we have Integrity! But we have a Coach who could not win an OT game with Saban's Bama boys!

Vanderbilt of the West, but without the academics.

We did allow 39 or so first downs ... a record 'against'.  Lord knows how many they would have gotten if not for the mercy rule starting the third quarter :)

I think the SEC is going to make us forfeit that game.  No QB should be forced to play Alabama behind our offense line.  Surely that would qualify as reckless endangerment.

For you all -- thanks for all the fun here.  Being serious, I did not think we (Vandy) would win, but this was a team like I have never seen before.  And we had no excuses - 17 of our 22 starters are upper class ... all were relatively healthy ... .... .... we simply were beaten by a much better team.

Thanks, but this is nearer true that you think.  Very early in the first, when one of the 'recently hurt' Alabama LB leapt about ten yards to tackle our back, and then the AL player screamed with pride, I jumped from my seat and ran for my car ..... and was passed by two Vandy players and an assistant coach!

I've been to many Vandy games down through the years and I always root for you guys if you're not playing the Hogs

Thank you!  ... and I root for the Hogs.  Vandy is a wonderful environment i m o., but football is tough for us - you need so much talent 'and'  depth.  Baseball, basketball etc, are easier.

Couldn't blame AA if he took a fall early in this one!

Just kidding folks.

I just heard Vandy allowed 38 first downs, not 39.  Whew, that's a load off my mind!!!!
