I’d like to welcome you to Vandy247 and thank you for checking us out.
I’d also like to give you an idea about what this site is and what kind of coverage you can expect from this site moving forward.
Vanderbilt, as an athletic department, is at an outstanding time in its history. The Commodores are owners of a 2012 SEC championship in basketball, a perennial national power in baseball and a football program that has earned a bowl birth in two of the past three years. There has never been a better time to be a fan of Vanderbilt.
With that being said, initially this site will focus primarily on football recruiting coverage with some football team coverage mixed in. As the site grows, we’ll be able to re-invest and extend our coverage. However we’ll still have complete discussion on Vanderbilt athletics on our message board and with the way our boards are designed at 247Sports, it cultivates discussion to make this community the destination for Vanderbilt fans.
Our board is a combination of free and premium. For example, you only have to be a registered user of this site to post and topics are free to read by everyone unless you mark your post VIP by checking the box, “show post to only Vandy247 fans”. If a post is VIP, only members of this site and this site only will be able to read it. It allows for topics such as game threads to be open for everyone while keeping the sensitive, inside information just for the VIP members.
Also I encourage everyone to check out some of these additional features on the site.
First on our Vanderbilt Twitter feed, you can follow analysts across all the networks to keep track of all mentions to Vanderbilt targets and commitments: http://vanderbilt.247sports.com/Team/Tweets
We have a timeline feature on our prospect database pages that keeps track of where players have visited, when offers have arrived where prospects have camped and loads of other information. Each time a Vanderbilt commit or target has a timeline entry added to his profile, it feeds into our timeline feed that you can find here: http://vanderbilt.247sports.com/Team/TimelineEvents
There are other bells and whistles that you will familiarize yourself with as you spend time on the site but that is a small sampling of what you can expect over here.
Please feel free to email or private message me if you ever have any questions or suggestions and please spread the word about the site. We have a great opportunity to grow but need your help in spreading the word.

I am so glad for you all to finally have this board up and running. I know we all appreciate all the hard work you all do bringing us all of the inside information.

Thanks for signing up Justin!
Any questions, suggestions, or requests just let me know.
If I can think of any I will. It is the first site I have ever paid for bar ESPN. I am really liking the level of in-depth access I am seeing.
I need some help I joined this Board about two months ago but it will not let me see the pages for members. Who do I need to text in order to get this corrected. Really like the board just need it to work. Thanks.
Just signed up today, Barton. Will take a while to get used to it, but it's a good looking site.
