I’m not sure what it is about Vandy that brings out the sugar-coating we’re seeing this week, but I flat out love this turn of phrase from Chip Towers, from his post entitled “Dangerous Vanderbilt team awaits Bulldogs”:
This is no ordinary Commodores team. They have some offensive issues and are unsettled at quarterback.
Some offensive issues? Here’s their current resume.
The Commodores rank 100th nationally in rushing offense (115.2 yards per game), 114th in passing (129.2), 117th in total offense (244.4) and 119th in first downs (11.6).
Last year, Vandy finished 80th in rushing offense, 105th in passing offense, 117th in total offense and 116th in first downs. So by Towers’ measurement, the Commodores have managed to regress from the one year they were run by a guy whose main claim to fame was doing unspeakable things to turkeys. I’m sort of curious to hear from him in what areas Vanderbilt’s offense doesn’t have issues.
As for being unsettled at quarterback, well, it’s Wednesd...
