Re: VT writer considers VU a "layup win" for Hokies

In the history of the internet, has there ever been a fan blog writer who didn't consider Vandy a layup win for their team? If VT was coming off a disaster season and VU was coming to the season on a rising trajectory, we'd all probably be projecting VT in the W column. And then find a way to lose ...

It's like arguing over who's infected with real OG leprosy.

Sorry, should I have worked the phrase “with that being said” into my critique somewhere?

Re: Mark Byington Interview on the Game

https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/willy-d-mase/id1486687590?i=1000660215484 Pretty in-depth interview with CBM - some highlights: I thought I heard CMB say that Carey is now 6'-9.5" and 270 lbs? He was listed last season at 6'-8", 245 so that would be a major growth spurt, but he appa...

Re: More (NMSU) Aggie: 247 Sports reporting RB Jamoni Jones joining the team

Should we be worried that NMSU was blown out in their bowl game in their own state? Or worse, they were defeated by Hawaii. I'm not sure that bodes well for SEC competition this season unless they face Auburn 8 times. I won't complain over getting an experienced, big RB however. We'll see! Well, th...

Re: Hasn't been the best week for 'crootin'

I can't help thinking some of our HS targets want to see how the staff and scheme changes, coupled with the portal additions, play the first few games. Agree. I think not only the recruits, but the players on the roster and the fans and donors are all watching, with limited patience. This seems lik...

Re: Meanwhile, on official visit weekend at another SEC school...

An 18-year old with a Lambo? Yeah. What can possibly go wrong?? My father was a racing driver for 20+ years and still a racing engineer. He says he doesn't feel safe driving these kind of cars on public roads himself. I will not ask his opinion about giving them to teenagers who think they're invin...

Re: Carson Lawrence update

Having your recruits blow up and get offers from more successful programs is a good sign overall. I don't expect to hang on to 100% of these, but the more we can keep the better.
I can't help but think that showing some progress this Fall would help.

Re: Practice Report from Vandysports.com

If bhoyal's minimum expectations come to fruition, I would be happy with that outcome. With a new coach, new system, and completely new roster my gut is telling me we may be reaching a little to expect an NCAA bid, but stranger things have happened. Personally, I am not expecting a lot this first s...

Re: Practice Report from Vandysports.com

There is no reason to diminish expectations. The school spent a ton of $$ for a new staff and new roster. Even in year one this is what should be expected: Win 75% or higher of non-league games Win 50% or higher of SEC games Be in the discussion for an NCAA tourney bid and if not be a #1 seed in th...
