Things don’t seem quite as hopeless as they did prior to Vanderbilt being competitive — and nearly winning — at Memphis last Saturday, but Vanderbilt still goes into its final game of 2023, and the nonconference schedule, with an identical 4-8 record to Dartmouth.
As Christian D’Andrea once noted in reference to MTSU, any time a school has a nickname that’s just a generic color, you can assume their previous mascot was super racist. And, well, Dartmouth was once known as the Indians. Now they’re known as the Big Green and their mascot is a keg. Fitting for the school that Animal House was supposedly based on.
