Victory in Nashville

  We didn’t buy in at first. You can go back through the archives of the Vanderbilt blogosphere in December 2010 and see that we were…less than enthusiastic about the hiring of James Franklin....

Grasping for perspective

December 14, 2010.  Your own words, Mr. Import: Maybe this is realistic, maybe not, but here's what I'd like to see: Season one: more than two wins. Season two: not less than 5 wins (including, by...

Not many people remember Munson as the voice of Commodore basketball from 1952-66, but no matter your allegiance, one of the legendary voices of college football. RIP

San Francisco Bay Area Vanderbilt Happy Hour

+

If you want the essence of #VandyLifestyle, you have to come out Thursday night for the annual trip to Bourbon and Branch. It's one of Esquire magazine's 50 best bars in America, and it's a speakeasy. No lie, it's a straight-up speakeasy. Seriously, you have to give the password "Commodore" when you show up on the 10th. So come one and all, let's curse Penn Wagers, get fired up for Oregon and Kentucky, and generally drink like the posh genius SOBs we all are.

Rodgers to start at Quarterback

Aaron's little brother is now at the controls for good. If he gets the win over Army, the Commodores will have as many wins this year as in 2009-10 combined. I mention this because I am reminded of Aaron taking the reins in mid-2003, and where things went from there. I'ma need to borrow this Sunshine Pump. I'll bring it back. Eventually.

NCAA To Smack Tennessee, Lane Kiffin

1

I love it when my two favorite schools get a gift on the same day. I had thought that hiring Kiffin with this cloud over him was basically $C showing a giant middle finger to the NCAA...and pretty much clinches that they shouldn't expect mercy on the appeal.
