Vanderbilt Football Mail Bag #6: Call For Submissions

Send VANDERBILT and/or SEC FOOTBALL questions to

NCAA Football: Missouri at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Letters... we get letters... we get sacks and sacks of letters...

With an unexpected upset victory over Missourah, Derek Mason gets his 2nd win over a ranked Big XII team in his Vanderbilt tenure. Will it be enough to get us to put away our pitchforks—at least for a while?

Mason’s cross-country bye week media tour will throw a bunch of goodwill Hail Marys, such as yesterday’s ESPN appearance:

(*Note to self: Good Will Hail Marys would be a horrible sequel to Good Will Hunting, though I would pay cash money to watch people huck apples at Gordon Wood).

Tough to say. Best way to find out is to re-open the mail bag...

Not only last week mark the high water point of the Commodores’ 2019 season thus far, but it also brought back some much needed Chugger Schadenfreude:

Here are the rules of the mail bag:

  1. This is a football mailbag, so limit your questions to Vanderbilt football, SEC football, college football, “feetball,” the former Vanderbilt commercial with all the feet in it, and/or Rex Ryan.
  2. Send your questions to by Tuesday (I will post the calls for submissions as reminders on Sunday or Monday each week). You may also post your questions here in the comments. Just post them in the body of the comment, with the subject line: “Question for the mail bag.”
  3. I will collate the best of said emails/questions in the comments, and cull ones that deal with the same topic (so we don’t have to repeat ourselves multiple times weekly). Then, all Anchor of Gold writers will get the opportunity to chime in. The answers will be published on Thursday or Friday.
  4. All Anchor of Gold community guidelines apply to the questions. Our basic rule is “don’t be the worst.” Chuggers fans violate this like it’s their birth right.
  5. Jeff Green travelled.

...and that’s it.

*Note: Questions about other SEC football teams are welcome, too. We just won’t know as much about them, and will likely respond with juvenile, biased trash talk.

I will do this weekly as long as the questions keep coming in. If they dry up, no post. I’m not mad, just disappointed.
