The cool comfort of losing a close game we should have won and then getting blown out by an SEC West foe w/ a filthmonster of a defense can now set in for the Commies. Let's be honest: the fairweather fans have already mailed it in on the boys in black and gold. (which reminds me, screw you, Kenny Chesney, for not including any Vandy footage in "The Boys of Fall." You'll take local high school footage, Indy Colts footage and random college footage and put it in there, but not a single image of the LOCAL SEC team? Really, that's how you're going to roll? Jackass.)
So, if you're reading this site, you're either an ESL student in Taipei whose teacher graduated from Vandy in the last year or two and decided to live abroad before going to law school OR you're an actual Commodore fan. Either way, you're my friend (and I'll try and cut down on the more difficult idiomatic expressions.)
So, Vandy is a 12 point dog (6.5 first half) and the ML is a whopping +400. O/U 43.5.
Safest bet is Vandy with that first half point spread. I say the Commies come out hot, particularly on defense. Wouldn't be suprised to see an explosive play or two on offense/special teams as well.
And if you love gambling, God and apple pie you're going to have to touch that money line. It's just too delicious not to.
P.S. I find a quiet joy in the fact that we are going to be running a "simplified offense" using far fewer plays. Vanderbilt had two heisman trophy winners and back to back national championships using such an offensive strategy. On NCAA '04. When I was in college.
