Vanderbilt’s Black & Gold scrimmage sounds like something straight out of a bad ethnic joke I was told years ago.
I’m not sure exactly how long Bobby Johnson planned to extend the Black & Gold scrimmage on Saturday, but when Vanderbilt’s offense touched down in the end zone, he blew his whistle.
Problem is, it took roughly an hour and a half of scrimmaging before the Commodores offense finally crossed the goal line.
“We’ve got to do better on offense,” quarterback Larry Smith said. “We’ve got to keep up our end of the bargain.”
Even with the ball placed on the 20, the offense failed to score a touchdown on four straight series. There was just one first down during that sequence.
This from a team that averaged less than nine points per game in SEC play last year. Not good.
