Answers after the jump ...

1. Can I, an average Joe Fan become STAT KING?

No.  Average Joe Fans can win the STAT KING contest, but they cannot become the STAT KING.  This is an important distinction.  Only uniform-wearing Vanderbilt basketballsmen can become STAT KING.  We prefer the big guys, which is why we skewed the competition in their favor; but, we even enjoy seeing guards win on occassion.  But, you're not going to become STAT KING by simmering pantsless in a natural sauna in the deep south with a bottle of beer in one hand and your favorite clicker in the other. 

2. Can my favorite Commodore basketball player win the contest?

Yes, with a qualifier.  Vanderbilt student athletes are entirely welcomed to play the STAT KING and even to win.  But, Vanderbilt student athletes will never get the STAT KING prize of a small image bearing their contest nickname and King Freije (below).  That is expressly against NCAA rules. 

3. Who has the most STAT KING crowns?

A.J. Ogilvy.  The contest was created with the Big Aussie in mind, as he has taken no less than 30 of the 209 STAT KING crowns. 

4. Who is that lady admiring King Freije's guns?

Everyone's favorite first lady, Nancy Reagan, graces the STAT KING site with her beauty and advancing age.  We love this woman, and we know you do, too.  King Freije is rumored to have said once that "Mrs. Reagan is the reason I came to Vanderbilt.  You don't get first ladies like that at other arenas." 

No, Mrs. Reagan will not marry me. 

I love her anyway.

5. What causes STAT KING to take unplanned leaves of absence? 

We hate losing.  When the team loses, we lose it.  We're petulant and unrepentant.  Like it or not, we're likely to disappear if the 'Dores start dropping games (see 02/03).  We might even take a year off, in an ingeniously subtle plan to inspire Derrick Byars into realizing his potential as the best player in the league.  Powerful are we. 

6. How many minutes must a player contribute in order to be eligible for the STAT KING crown?

10 minutes. 

7. Can family members play STAT KING?

Yes, and they often do.  My father and daughter have combined for 7 STAT KING crowns.  TommyDore's wife even won once. 

8. Who has won the STAT KING contest more than anyone else (not counting "NO WINNER")?

CDore78 has won 7 crowns by himself.  Well, actually, we think Ben's really picking for the old guy, because CDore78 doesn't have the sense God gave a penny whistle.  Ben's our favorite Vandy fan.  Better than Lance. 

9. Does STAT KING recruit middle school students?

We don't think it's ever too early to bring in new talent.  Will we be here in 6 years when you graduate high school?  Not a freaking clue, but we're young, reckless, drunk, and never once played college sports, so what do we have to lose?  Stay in school kids.  And, just say no (to STAT KING, Lane Kiffin, and dear Lord especially that freakshow Billy Gillispie.)

10. Can I question the STAT KING?

That's an open invitation to a good old-fashioned Nancy Reagan butt-whipping.
