Letters... we get letters... we get sacks and sacks of letters...
With exactly 4 weeks to go before we kick off the Clark Lea era against ETSU, we at Anchor of Gold have decided to open the football mail bag. Before you ask, yes, we have each earned our numbers. I got Pi.
...and yes, we will all be wearing cream colored window panel suits like Clark Lea wore at SEC Media Days while we answer your questions. No pants.
Oh, and there are a few minutes left to vote in this all-important poll:
As today, we are 29 days from kickoff, and 29 for the Commodores is freshman linebacker Miles Capers... it's poll time on potential nicknames. Vote below (or post a better one in the comments):— Atlantic League Stan Account (@anchorofgold) August 6, 2021
Here are the rules of the mail bag:
- This is a football mailbag, so limit your questions to Vanderbilt football, SEC football, former Big XII football apostate schools, college football, “feetball,” the former Vanderbilt commercial with all the feet in it, and/or Rex Ryan.
- Post your questions in the comments below by Monday (I will post the calls for submissions as reminders on Sunday each week). 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.
