I'm not going to mince words, Commodore Message Board Dwellers! LEAVE THE RALLY 'STACHE ALONE OR I WILL EXERT MY IMPRESSIVE WILL UPON YOU LIKE THE MIGHTY POSEIDON HIMSELF!

Its record speaks for itself. Since the Rally 'Stache, Vanderbilt is 4-0, outscoring opponents 351-224, or by an average of 32 points per game.

Opponents fear the Rally 'Stache. In the 9 games B.S. (Before 'Stache), teams shot 42% from the field and 35% from 3. In the four games since, they're shooting 30% from the field and 26% from the 3.

John Jenkins feeds off the power of the Rally 'Stache, shooting 16 of 24 from 3 point land (67%). As the Rally 'Stache grows, so too has Jenkins 3 point shooting ability.

The Rally 'Stache inspires defense. It inspires grit, determination, hustle and confidence.

Do you not understand the implications of your calls for the Rally 'Stache to disappear, fellow armchair coaches?

Forgive them Rally 'Stache, for they know not what they do.

***Author's Note: I have no knowledge of what A.J. Ogilvy actually calls the Rally 'Stache. Until that information is made available to me, I shall continue to refer to it by its rightful name.
