Vanderbilt lands commitment from 4-star DB Joejuan Williams

Vanderbilt could still make a bowl game

Though the team is 4-6 (2-4 SEC) on the season, the Vanderbilt Commodores only need to win one more game to actually qualify for a bowl game this year. Allow me to explain, with some help from David Ammenheuser of The Tennessean. Because there are two additional bowl games this year, the Autonation Cure Bowl in Orlando and the Nova Home Loans Arizona Bowl (guess the location), to...

The Vanderbilt-Ole Miss kick-catch interference ruling: wrong, yet defensible

It came as a revelation… and the revelation was not a happy one. I had thought  this was the worst rule in the college football rulebook, and that this clock-start/stop policy was about as bad. On Saturday night (and then through study on Sunday morning), I realized that college football has a rule which is worse — or at least, more poorly written — than the “fumble-off...

Vandy OG: 'I'd rather have Ralph Webb than Nick Chubb'

Most discussions about the best running backs in college football will begin with Nick Chubb. If he’s not the first player mentioned, he should be the second or third. Vanderbilt sophomore Ralph Webb is coming off of a nice year, totaling 907 yards and four touchdowns, but most wouldn’t put him in the same category as Chubb. Vanderbilt guard Jake Bernstein is an exception. When...

Vanderbilt Football: Photo: Ralph Webb’s Watch Might Be The Winner Of SEC Media Days So Far

Most Vanderbilt fans would probably admit that the Commodores aren’t the main attraction at this year’s SEC media days. Pretty much every other SEC team brings some serious intrigue by virtue of being a powerhouse (Alabama), trending upwards (Tennessee), or being coached by Steve Spurrier (South Carolina). Coming off of a 3-9 season and a winless SEC campaign, it is hard to get...
