It's Monday, so we should have a new crop of bracketologies for everyone's amusement.
But perhaps the best thing I saw as I sat about 7 to 8 rows behind the Vanderbilt bench was the interaction of the team as a whole. This was never a scared group. They came into a decently hostile environment, complete with the "Garnet Army" chanting "Sweden sucks", and a guy asking A.J. Ogilvy if they had razors in Australia, and smiled as they beat the Gamecocks in nearly every phase of the game. I wrote after the Florida game that this would be where the fun begins for this team, and what I saw on Saturday makes me believe it even more. This team is on the same page, has a multitude of weapons, and doesn't lose a step when a new group comes in. While we may not beat Kentucky in Rupp or Tennessee in Knoxville, we are going to give them a hell of a fight. I think the days of shell shock are over.
