This is the best the stadium has ever looked for Vandy-UT with regard to fan distribution. Maybe 20 percent of the stadium is Orange? 25?
Tough for Vandy to not get six after that long Stacy screen pass., Can't settle for FGs against this UT offense.
Big time play by Trey Wilson there to defend that slant from Hunter. Tough situation and tough guy to defend in that setting. Great stop there.
Bray hit Patterson right in the bUTtchugger... Great 4th down stop!
I'm looking forward to seeing what Shoop does tonight in those sort of settings. 4th and medium, he brought no heat and made Bray beat the zone and he didn't. We'll see what happens moving forward. Big Stop there though.
Talked to Shoop briefly before the game. He said this was a hell of a game to prepare for. Was very complimentary of that TN offensive talent.
Major bullet dodged with that Patterson punt return. Bad coverage there. I thought it was going to be a lot better return.
Huge sack for Azubike. Kid is coming along.
Weak effort trying to set the edge there on that end around to C. Patt. You gotta want to bring him down. can't just go through the motions. Missed who it was but it was uninspired.
Wow. I don't think that WIlson should be flagged for that hit on Howard but often that draws one. Good job by the ref to hold off. Good clean hit and big stop. Vandy D stepping up so far.
1Q stats of note:
Total offense: Vandy-111, UT-84
Tyler Bray: 5-14 for 65 yds
AJ Johnson (UT): 7 tackles
Palardy punting: 2 for 91 yards (long of 50 w 1 inside laid down on the 1).
Hate that pass interference call. Let them play ball.
Yeah, that was a totally bogus call.
Rob Lohr with the tip, Johnell Thomas with the pick.
Like the call by DOnovan to try to go up top after that sudden change. We'll see if they start looking vertical.
Well Vandy is back to its old ways of looking completely overwhelmed inside the red zone.
Chris Boyd's upside is phenomenal. If the light really turns on for him, he probably has more pure talent than Matthews.
Tennessee is controlling the line of scrimmage. As explosive as this passing attack is, they're really doing their damage in the run game. Vandy can't consistently limit the UT push.
Great catch by Boyd for sure... extremely frustrating to watch a guy get slammed 5 yards out of bounds and no flag. typical ut / vandy officiating. been watching this kind of crap for over 50 years.
James Franklin was livid! He's not going to let the refs forget about that one.
Vanderbilt has got to tackle better if they're gonna win this game. Rarely getting running backs down on first contact.
Hey Barton... Do the recruits seem to be having fun?
Pre-game, yes. All the commits seem to be building a good bond. McQuay, Bunting, Walker, Wharton are a few of the guys that were spending a lot of time with the commits.
Congrats guys. Incredible performance by your team so far. One teams wants this game.
Best case scenario right now!!!!
How important are half time adjustments....? all i can say is WOW.
Yeah. This is the best Vandy has looked all year. Firing on all cylinders. Game isn't even as close as the score.
Carey Spear. Too tough for his own good. Hell of an effort though. He's tackling better than the rest of the kickoff team.
