Letters... we get letters... we get sacks and sacks of letters...
We scored 38 points on LSU’s defense—that’s good!
Our defense surrendered 66 points—that’s bad!
Ke’Shawn Vaughn ran for 130 yards and 2 TDs—that’s good!
Ja’Marr Chase had 229 yards receiving and 4 TDs (with most of this occurring before halftime)—that’s bad!
Fans could hear the cheering and music of a raucous pep band—that’s good!
That band was LSU’s, though, as were the majority of the fans—that’s bad!
I have a pretty good idea what the tenor of this week’s mailbag questions will be, but just for fun, let’s check in with the Het-O-Meter...
*Note: We replace your regularly scheduled Chugger-freude with some well-deserved Arky-freude:

Even as we’re sharpening our pitchforks... remember, we could’ve had The Chad.
Here are the rules of the mailbag:
- 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.
- Send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.”
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
