Anchor down, Knoxville.

Vanderbilt’s current winning streak over Tennessee is a thing of beauty and a joy forever.

In Derek Mason’s fifth season with the program, The Commodores finished 6-7 with their second bowl appearance in three years. Still, Vanderbilt failed to secure a winning record under Mason. In his half a decade in Nashville, the best Vanderbilt has been able to do is 6-7. That’s not bad when you look at the team’s history, especially when you consider the recent dominance over in-state rival Tennessee.

The Commodores have won three straight over the Volunteers, the program’s best stretch in that rivalry since the 1920s.

A three-game winning streak while failing to finish above .500 in any of those three seasons is my kind of “recent dominance”.  Keep it going, ‘Dores.

    Don’t think it would be very smart long-term but Vandy should put up “Recent Dominance” billboards in Knoxvegas while they can. Double digit wins for 3 consecutive years by the Dores, damn! Need to remind those Vol fans just where they are these days.

    If anyone needed further proof of how wretched UT has been over the past 3-5 years (longer, really) … That Vandy winning streak over the Vols is the mic drop.

    Here’s an article I found from this morning. Buried in all of the delusion are a couple of facts. To wit:
    “Bad coaching and a shortage of good players are obvious reasons why Tennessee hasn’t won 10 games since 2007 and has had seven losing records during the same stretch…Tennessee and Vanderbilt remain the only teams in the SEC that haven’t won at least 10 games in a season since 2007.”
