The Chain: August 8th, 2012 Edition

Would photoshopping in laser beams be a fair use or a violation? My contention is that scholarly works should freely stand on their own merits.

The Chain is the roundup of all the daily Vanderbilt Commodore news "links" to help you "Anchor Down."

Will we see more of a west coast offensive flair in 2012?

Vanderbilt believes short passes will go a long way toward success in 2012 | Nashville City Paper

"The short-game passing has to be a ton better," Rodgers said. "That is going to keep drives going. At times [in 2011] we stalled, not because of our running game so much, because we didn’t get completions when we needed to. That’s something to do with not finishing games as well. "We’ll still have an explosive offense but we’re going to be a lot more consistent."

James Franklin unhappy with Vanderbilt practice (The Tennessean)

"We have to become more mentally tough because as soon as we walked out here — just like the first day, it was warm — and we didn’t respond well," Franklin said. "As long as we learn from this experience and it doesn’t happen ever again in the next 25 years, then we’ve learned something. But if it happens again, it’s my responsibility to get it fixed."

Franklin said Hand recently showed off his vocal skills at a karaoke bar while rapping to Eminem during a staff retreat in Birmingham. "He got after it. He was dead serious," Franklin said. "He rapped … so hard that he almost passed out." The legend of Herb Hand continues to grow.
