  • Oh Good Greif: Auburn win upsets BCS standings

    The BCS, which is in its final campaign this year, is in shambles after Auburn defeated Alabama 34-28 on that amazing missed field goal return for a touchdown. That also scrambled the bowl game match-ups, which will be announced after all of the games this weekend.

  • ALL IN THE GAME: It may never happen again

    That headline could go for a lot of things during this Commodore football season. Beating Georgia, Florida and Tennessee in the same season is certainly a first. Beating Tennessee two years in a row is surely not a common occurrence. Having a talented wide receiver reach several SEC records is just icing on the cake. A win over Wake Forest would sure make for a good regular season finish.

  • ROCKY TOP BEAT: Butler’s team wins Saturday

    The first thing I would like to do is congratulate fellow columnist Jim Butler after his Commodores found a way not to lose the rivalry game. After both teams tried so hard throughout the game to give this game to the other team, it was Jim’s favorite team from Nashville that came out on top 14-10. I can only hope that they parlay this into a bowl trip somewhere warm for our friend.

  • All in the Game: Vandy-Vol match got here in a hurry

    It's hard to believe that it is already time for the big Vanderbilt and Tennessee encounter on the gridiron. Remember when it was just a small speck on the Volunteers' radar because this victory was assured and was in the bag?

  • Rocky Top Beat: Vols favored against rival Vandy

    The game that fellow columnist Jim Butler and I wait for each year is just hours away. While the season has flown by way too fast, this game has been forever getting here after last year’s debacle in the Music City.

  • ALL IN THE GAME: I hope that I don't get spoiled

    As my team number whatever continues its journey toward what is hopefully another bowl appearance, I hope that I don't get to the point that it is win at all costs. That will not happen with us Vanderbilt fans,  as winning is a good thing for us, but not the only thing.

  • ROCKY TOP BEAT: Vols’ loss to Auburn shows what is needed to be better

    The lopsided loss last weekend to Auburn said volumes about where the program is now and what is needed to get better in the future. The Vols were simply too slow on defense and had no answer for Auburn’s ground game. Most of those fixes will come from recruiting, but in the meantime, there are a few more games to be played this season.

  • All in the Game: Quaterback issues plaguing teams

    Keeping a healthy number one quarterback seems to be the issue for many teams around the SEC. Vanderbilt and Tennessee are among those teams that have been hurt by injuries at this most key position and both teams must have someone step up to make it to the bowl season

  • Rocky Top Beat: Vols host Auburn Saturday

    The Tennessee schedule is starting to take its toll on the team, the coaching staff and the Vol Nation. After playing two exceptional games at home against quality opponents earlier in October, the Vols have taken their lumps in two of their latest contests on the road.
