Vanderbilt Hotline: De Facto Final Four Edition

Here at the Vanderbilt Sports Line, we are very found of the transitive property. Of all the math properties in fact, the transitive one is definitely our favorite. So, with this in mind, we would like to congratulate Vanderbilt's basketball team on their first Final Four berth. You see, Vanderbilt, for all intents and purposes, beat Georgetown. Georgetown beat North Carolina to advance to the Final Four. Therefore Vanderbilt, by virtue of having actually beaten Georgetown, is a Final Four team. For more whiny logic, be sure to check out our podcast below.

For Kevin Stallings and Vanderbilt, as Mo Patton writes in Sunday's Tennessean, the key is building on this momentum and looking to the future for continued success. Brett Hait also has a article in today's Nashville City Paper about Vanderbilt basketball's future. Vanderbilt is losing 3 seniors and two starter to graduation. Today's Hotline Hot Topic will be about Vanderbilt's future and what the team will look like next year. Thanks to Douglas James for the suggestion. That thread will be posted later in the day.

The Vanderbilt Hustler writes a "Thank you" to this Commie team, and Brett Hait hopes this team will be remembered for their wins as opposed to their "loss."

Vanderbilt baseball lost it's first series of the season to the #14 Arkansas Razorbacks. Vanderbilt lost the rubber match 8-3 yesterday in Fayetteville. Despite a big weekend in Beantown, Woody will have a recap sometime today. Vanderbilt plays MTSU in Nashville this week in this year's version of the "O'Shea Bowl."

Coach Bobby Johnson got another commitment as linebacker Triston Strong committed to the Commies on Saturday.

Starbucks is coming to campus, and the natives are not happy.

Ladies night at the Vanderbilt Sports Line Bracket Challenge. Right now, both Seamus and I are not only losing to girls, but to girls who are also our mothers. At least I am beating my girlfriend. Seamus, can you say the same?
