This team is killing me.
Regarding Nutt’s brilliance in turning Ole Miss around, having Jevan Snead eligible (and not having Brent Schaeffer) helps.
Looking forward to the VU-Ole Miss game in a couple weeks. Gotta get by Rice first, of course.
Could Rice really pull an upset? After beating USC, I think that a bowl game is possible–but yes getting by Rice is essential. No more MTSU upsets…
We should be excited with our AA and High A teams. The club we have in Atlanta has nothing to be excited about except Chipper, McCann, JJ, and Gonzo.
Rice scares me. It’s a potential trap game, and they run a spread passing attack very well. Their defense is terrible, and I expect to win by multiple TDs, but I know too much about Vanderbilt football history to take this—or any—game lightly.
Stu–I think that is wise–one of the great things about college football are the upsets when a favored team hardly shows up….
I like it better when a favored team just gets whipped and outplayed by an underdog. See: USC-e at VU, 9/4/08.
A “trap game”…for Vanderbilt? Love it.
And how ’bout them Falcons?
Birds are looking good. And Kitna is a far bigger asshole than his talent or decision-making warrants…
This is just more evidence that Petrino is a loser.
Is nothing sacred?

Yeah, ububba, what else would you call a game against a less talented team in between two winnable conference games against similarly-talented teams.
Vanderbilt’s not SEC-elite-level good, but on a national level, yeah, we’re better than a whole lot of teams. That’s been true for the past few years under Bobby Johnson.
First criticism of the Mike Smith era — you have second down on your own 11-yard line, with a 2 TD lead and a rookie QB, against an opponent with no timeouts and a minute left in the half. Two runs up the middle, please. How hard is that?
Standard Jeffy hit, hard swing, weak-ass fly ball drops for a single.
Stu, What would I call it?
Pujols 1 for 3 and now at .360, 3 points ahead of Chipper.
You suck, Jeffy.
I utterly despair at Bobby Cox.
Bringing in McCann as a pinch hitter and making him bunt. If you want a bunt, use someone else.
Corky so utterly useless that another day off for McCann is used up by him having to come into the game.
On the plus side, Jo-Jo pitched effectively, even if he only struck out one and only pitched a strike 58% of the time.
Does this currently-running television commercial remind anyone else of the Braves’ everyday right fielder?
Whew, 14 innings of Nats/Braves should be a sentence, not a choice.
What circle of Hell is this?
Elijah Dukes, again.
As Skip used to say, “Just can’t beat fun at the ol’ ballpark.”
The Braves as a whole are fast taking on the appearance of their current “face of the franchise” Jeff Francoeur.
No, it’s the Picture of Dorian Schuerholz. He never changes, but the team decays before our eyes.
Even James Parr has enough strike zone recognition to get a walk.
Then, as the tying run, Francoeur swings at one that, if it was in the zone, was right on the edge and weakly grounds out.
Recap is up. I may go with the “Recaps (Irrelevant)” category I used for spring training from now on, what do you think?
