Derek Mason gets it — Vanderbilt football must do things differently

There was moderate surprise when Vanderbilt announced it would be the only SEC school not to hold a televised spring football game. This broke tradition, as the Commodores typically hold an annual Black and Gold Game. Instead, Vanderbilt will have an open practice and scrimmage as a spring showcase for its fans.

How realistic are Vanderbilt’s at-large chances?

They’re better than you think. But they’re based on what they could do more than what they’ve done.

Vanderbilt 71, South Carolina 62: If only this team had started the year well

Vanderbilt’s 2016-17 season has been a disappointment, but not in the way you think. I admit to being a fan of the RPI Wizard tool at RPIforecast.com, because it gives you a sense of alternate realities to the season. In the early part of the season, Vanderbilt dropped close games to Bucknell and Minnesota. If you just flipped those two results, the Commodores would be 16-11...
