FOOTBALL: Vandy fans cautiously optimistic

Vanderbilt is 3-0, and Commodores fans are cautiously optimistic. I’ve thought from the beginning of this season that Ole Miss needed to be 3-1 out of the gate to really have a chance to become bowl eligible, and that means beating Vanderbilt.

Vanderbilt has a quality win against South Carolina after momentum in the game changed on a Gamecocks special teams miscue in the second half. The Commodores other wins are against Miami-Ohio and Rice. Vandy has five new starters on th OL and is currently rushing for 225.7 yards a game, second in the SEC. But it is dreadful with the pass and is 11th in total offense.

Ole Miss has defended the run pretty well the last two weeks and will need that trend to continue Saturday night.

    ole miss will be a totally different defensive front team when Hardy is back! Vandy is better than they use to be but not enough to beat us at home this year! Our coaching staff is ten times better than last 4 years. Ole Miss wins this weekend… 31 14

    I see another close one this week. Vandy has momentum right now, and that’s a dangerous thing for the opponent. I think we win, but it’ll be tight.

    These teams respect the talent level that each have, but each team also believes this is one they SHOULD win.

    Sounds like their offense is playing to our defense’ strength. Look forward to the game. I think Coach N. will have everyone ready to play this weekend. Can’t be sleep walking through the first half, though.

    PA, is there any word on Hardy for this week? Thanks for all the good work!

  7. djrebel Says:

    We’ll check on Hardy here shortly, and I’ll have some notes after the presser. Based on the time table we heard last week I’d say there’s a small chance he could get a few snaps.
