The "Four Days to Go, Arrrgh!" Open Thread

We're still pretty excited about the CWS. Come talk about it with us.

LSU lost last night. State lost to Northwestern. Georgia and Carolina are in tight games. Does the SEC really need Vandy to defend its honor?

Game 10: Dores vs. Middle

Vanderbilt takes their act to Downtown Nashville. (Good thing Jay Cutler doesn't have basketball eligibility.)

Clay Travis breaks the story.

Who had the best defensive performance of Wk 12? This team, oh yeah.

CFBTN, my new favorite site, gives us the best performance of the week based on the numbers. Makes sense -- you throttle an insanely prolific offense, you get the award.

Rivals Roundtable: How attractive is the Vandy job?

In case you don't get enough put-downs of our football program during the season, read what Rivals writers have to say about our job opening. Sadly, I don't disagree with them all that much; I'd consider our job the most challenging, but not the worst.

It would take a pretty severe penalty to provide disincentive for paying players. Does this do it?

Vanderbilt 28:1 to win the CWS

+

Not sure what Vegas sportsbook this Florida State poster got odds from, but in any event they have us at 28:1, biggest dog in the field except Alabama. (Interestingly, Clemson is the remaining 2-seed and is way up the table at 13:1, which makes sense because Clemson gets to face Alabama whereas other 1-seeds have to go at each other.) FSU is 10:1, right in the middle of the table

Final: Illinois State 8 - Saint Louis 3

Encouraging news for Vanderbilt as Illinois State backs up its creditable performance Friday with a win on Saturday. So far no game story on the official ISU site, Gored Birds.com

Save Sonny Gray for Louisville? An Unsatisfying, Impractical Analysis

A lot of VU fans are advocating resting Sonny Gray for the second game, in the belief that Vanderbilt can cakewalk all over Illinois State just like we cakewalked all over Murray State.... err, I...

NCAA baseball and geographical diversity

As you might know by now, Vanderbilt was not selected as a regional host for the 2010 NCAA Baseball Championship.  Connecticut, after an inferior season by any objective measure, was selected. ...

Why can Butler make the final game and Vanderbilt can't?

I'm still learning my way around here so I'm not sure what the most appropriate way to cross post stuff I write on VandySports is.  Please bear with me. So, you can read the antecedent discussion...
