Robinette Named Starting QB, AOG Writer Confused

Last night, Coach Mason named Patton Robinette his starting QB. Upon reading this, this writer has not been able to return his eyes to a non-Larry David-stare state.

It's Patton

With a week to go before the season opener, Coach Derek Mason has named Patton Robinette the starting QB. Although Johnny McCrary and Stephen Rivers were both talked up as likely starters, the Dores will go with the only player with starting experience at the college level.

Former Vanderbilt quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels's journey towards a head coaching position has officially started. Mizzou blogger The Missouri Logo (@MissouriLogo) tweeted today that Carta-Samuels has joined the Tigers' staff as a graduate assistant. While it's a shame that the talented leader couldn't continue his football career in Nashville, we're all pulling for him as he climbs up the coaching ladder.

FREE AUDIO FOR 2014-2015 SEASON!

HUGE news here folks.

VUCommodores.com has unveiled that for the 2014-2015 season, we can get free audio for a huge amount of Vanderbilt sports events. These events include:

* Football

* Men's/Women's Basketball

* Baseball

* Coaches' Shows (CKS, CDM, CTC)

HUGE! This is especially great news for the baseball/basketball games, many of which are on obscure channels or ESPN3 only. In addition, there's always (at least) one Vanderbilt football game which gets relegated to the netherworld, so this is big. The change is effective immediately.

There's not much of note - some tackling drills, lots of footwork exercises, and Oren Burks alligator-arming a pass - but it's nice to see the new coach at work. It won't be tough to distinguish his voice along the sidelines this fall, either. He even throws in a Hank Hill "I tell you hwut" towards the end! See the whole video here - because SBNation and ESPN's embedding don't get along well.
