Soon, grasshoppers, soon.
- “After going 6-1 ATS as a home underdog in 2015-16, Vandy has limped to a 1-5 spread record as a home ‘dog the last two seasons.”
- This is a potentially interesting development to keep an eye on.
- ‘Bout damned time.
- Mark Schlabach predicts Georgia loses to Texas A&M in the regular season, and then turns around and beats ‘Bama in the SECCG. I’d take that.
- That sound you hear is bookies groaning after hearing this news.
- Boy, did Dan Enos throw Jarren Williams under the bus after Miami’s loss to Florida.
- Penn State is back in court.
- Vanderbilt is the only Southeastern Conference program yet to reveal a starting quarterback for its opening game.
- Mississippi State to Vandy: hold my beer.
- In case you didn’t know, you can bet first half lines and team totals. Here are some for the Georgia and Georgia Tech games.

Did Texas A & M beat anyone of note last year? I could maybe take losing to them this year and winning the SECCG, but I was hoping our days of being another coach’s/team’s “signature win” were behind us.
And in Shlabach’s scenario, Bama makes the 4 team playoff field anyway. At that point I’d just hope that we get Oklahoma again and Clemson beats Bama so we avoid a potential rematch. Plus Jalen Hurts is now at Oklahoma, so maybe there’s a chance for revenge there too.
Beat LSU and should have beaten Clemson early in the season. They were inconsistent but have some talent. I expect them to give us a hard time.
Jerren Williams was happy just to finish that game in one piece. Expecting him to make plays is a bit much.
Dan Enos sounds like a world-class dick. Under the circumstances, I think that kid did a phenomenal job.
If his coach says he was responsible for 5 of the 10 sacks, who are we to argue? Perhaps you didn’t see him holding the ball and not throwing or attempting to throw until it was too late. I think that’s also a compliment where Enos says he didn’t do those things in practice and perhaps he was nervous; either way, he says he is better than that and is expecting him to improve with experience. I don’t call that tossing someone under the bus. Certainly, he was including the O-line in the other 5 sacks.
True that the kid was let down by his teammates, but that shouldn’t call for holding the ball, grounding or throwing it away too late; actions that caused fumbles and losing the ball for his team to win.
I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree Cojo. I thought the kid looked a lot better than Franks did, and he’s a freshman behind an offensive line that brought back this picture in my head:
Even if he sucked complete moose shit, have you ever heard a coach talk about a kid like this to the media? I can’t remember ever hearing it. Enos isn’t just a tool, he’s a whole shed full of tools.
Williams struggled, sure.
(1)It was his first game.
(2)The cheerleaders holding the banner when they ran on the field did a better job of stopping florida than UM’s offensive line.
(3) Dan Enos sounds like an asshole.
Vandy always gives somebody they shouldn’t a game early.
I hope it isn’t us.
What Cowdog said!
Enos is spot on about Williams holding the ball. Not sure I would have blasted him publicly, but a lot of those sack were definitely on the qb.
I’m no qb guru but when a kid runs out of bounds for a three yard loss as opposed to lofting the ball into the sideline something is wrong.
Enos is right to point to mistakes and flaws in Williams’ game, but that’s for the film room. You don’t tear him up piece by piece to the press unless you’re a fucking asshole.
Is Dan’s middle initial P?
It is now as far as I’m concerned. That’s funny.
I detest James Franklin, Penn State and Big Integer football. They deserve everything they get and more.

Jackson really went far from his Bremen, GA roots but I miss him calling college football. Whoa Nelly!!!!!
Mark Schlabach is on to the “Kirby theory”….lose a meaningless game to get the team’s attention for the final push through the SECCG and playoffs.
Especially if that loss can hurt Bama in the West.
For reference, see 2017 Auburn Part I and 2018 LSU.
