I have no idea how Vanderbilt can turn around their football program except for lowering academic standards for athletes. They need a coach who is committed to spending 10+ years shaping a brand new program. Right now I am not convinced at all that Bobby Johnson is that man. Thought?

Gordo has a hornets nest on his hands. He's trying to move academia into the locker room with all the changes he's made to the tiers of power by virtually eliminating the Athletic Directors job and pooling the athletic department with the main body. Very, very idealistic viewpoint of how to get the student back into athletics.

 

There's only one problem that Gee's overlooked.

 

First, you have to have athletes before you can educate them B)

Unfortunately for Vandy being set up the way it is, we will most likely never see a 10 year coach at that school. The entire set up puts coaches there in a very bad situation. Back during the preseason I had predicted that the Dores were going to come out the gate flat, but just never figured they would be that flat.

Vandy needs a different coach, somebody young, energetic, and disciplined that will step up and say this is the way its gonna be and if you dont like it, hit the rode, because we can find someone that wants to play! They need someone that will bring a new attitude to the locker room, an attitude in which the mind set is we are good and we are suppose to win! Instead Vandy believes when they walk out onto the field it is OK to lose as long as they give 110% and that shouldnt be there mind set. If Vandy would play every team they play with the intensity and passion that they play UT, you would see a big difference! Dont get me wrong they havent beat UT in 21 years, but they sure have given them some scares in those 21 years, just like two weeks ago!

    • The grade changes and ineligible player are two different situations.    the district purposefully released information and forced CHS to self report before even verifying anything an hour before graduation to distract people from bigger issue. The ol “Ask me about my ACT Scores trick”.  CO kmew people would concentrate more on sports and turn on Keith.  The grade changes were mostly non athletes and kids the principal didn’t want in the building or regular classes. It was simple bump ups so kids could pass classes and get out   As the district started looking into grade changes, the curtains began to one pulled back. Kids not taking EOCs, pre test mode on edgenuity and even some getting to graduate without the proper credits. They found out they let kids graduate without classes they needed and so this entire time people have associated the grade changes to this one football player and athletes. The perfect diversion to place blame on a few and avoid an almost certain downfall of the top.    I was told the lawyer of the director recommended he resign right before the news broke of the ineligible player. It was Keith, the AD and all others who were let go or him so he had his guard dog create a narrative they could sell. And it worked     
    • Great question!  I have ask that question numerous times and no one seems to know
    • Antioch thought they scored a TD and went to the ref but didn’t and time was running. Hillsboro pulled it out.
    • You can do all the math you want it won’t do any good 
    • Well. Considering how AC recruits from all over Knoxville and the surrounding areas, and Greene county is huge, I’ll take the Carter County all stars as a compliment. Especially since Betsy is the biggest school in Carter County at 4A. And in my opinion if a kid wants to have a better education or better opportunities, more power to them. It does help if they have size, speed and can fill a position of need though! LOL
