Vanderbilt Hotline: Fruitless Friday Edition

Not much Vanderbilt in the news, so by all means continue the discussion of Vandy's basketball schedule.

In football news, Brett Hait of the City Paper reports that Patrick Benoist's status is still unclear after the ankle sprain in practice Wednesday. He and Brandon Bryant have been in a dead-heat battle for the third linebacker spot, but now Bryant is expected to start against Richmond.

Also notable: freshmen John Stokes and Jamie Graham are expected to see some playing time at linebacker and cornerback, respectively.

Scout.com has the scoop on wide receiver John Cole, Vanderbilt's 13th football commitment for the 2008 class of recruits. Supposedly Cole was one of the best receivers in the state of Kentucky.

You could take a look at USA Today's SEC Outlook, but you'd only be frustrated at the lack of depth and their prediction that Vanderbilt will finish in last place in the East. About the only thing they got right was that Earl is a "player to watch." Tell us something we don't already know (and gush over on a daily basis).

Exeunt.

Arkansas's "team turmoil" was blown up at least 150% of what it was by the media - I'd expect our lack of experience at quarterback or the fact that we might be without our top receiver for the first couple of weeks more of an issue than "team turmoil."

USA Today is a newspaper for people that don't like reading the newspaper.

I just wanted to point out how brilliant a summation that really is.

check out the new list of Herbie's. Earl gets a mention and he picks Vandy as a sleeper in the SEC East. A surprising bit of vandy love from the ESPN boys.

I love the fact that, whoever "anonymous" is, his/her snide remark was posted at 10:00 am on a SATURDAY morning. For someone who dislikes sports blogs enough to read ours, I'm impressed that "anonymous" is so loyal as to spend his/her weekends poring over what we have to say. Nothing like an ego stroke to get my week started off right...
