Raiders do it to Commode-doors again.

How bad is Vanderbilt? I mean really...if the Commodores and the Titans played a scrimmage, could you really tell who's the worst team in the SEC and who's the worst team in the AFC?

Well, when you are a long suffering Vandy fan, this kind of thing doesn't surprise you. It always dissapoints but never surprises. It's bad when your best Commodore memories are now more than 20 years old.

I would like to know why Vanderbilt don't want to continue with this Rivalry are they worried that it will get like the Tennessee series with Vandy never getting much of a chance to win? I think it is Vanderbilt's loss if they do not keep this series going as close as the two schools are located. I suppose its when they look in the stands and its all Blue & Gray it reminds them of when its all Orange every other year. ;)

If I was the AD or the school president I would want this matchup every year. If I was Coach Johnson, no way.

 

Vandy as an SEC shool should be able to beat Middle 8 or 9 out of every ten times. But, until they get their program headed that way, these losses to MTSU really hurt.

Vandy has been our first win of the past two seasons. If they never schedule Middle again, how are we ever going to get anything into the win column? ;)

 

I don't think Vandy would be able to dominate a continued series in an 8 or 9 out of ten fashion, which makes it such an excellent rivalry. I see it as being a toss-up year after year... much like an Oliver Springs/Kingston matchup. Of course Kingston doesn't like getting beat by the runts from the other side of the county, but nothing does a better job of getting people excited about their school's program.

 

Should the games continue, MT will work hard to make up for all those 51-0, 69-0, 45-0 whippings it received early in the previous century.
