* BRAND. NEW. VANDERBILT.
* Ok, apparently I have to get this up to a minimum word count. What else can you say? Everybody came to play last night, the tentative play calling early turned into repeated shots to the dome-piece down the stretch, Zac Stacy was Zac Stacy, the passing game was crisp and effective, Andre Hal staked his claim to be the next shutdown corner at Vanderbilt, Richard Kent was amazing, Carey Spear damn near killed Cordarrelle Patterson and himself into the bargain, our fans were sensational, Tennessee was ineffective, Tyler Bray demonstrated why he's named after the sound a jackass makes, and the best thing the Vols did all night was get off the field at halftime to make way for the Pride of the Southland Band (props, they do always have an excellent band, credit where due). And, of course, lots of orange streaming out of the stadium with a full quarter left to play. VAWL SO HARD.
* And it hardly needs saying at this point: PLEASE MARTHA GO GET THE CHECKBOOK.
