It Doesn't Get Any More Real...

Vanderbilt's game against Tennessee is the biggest regular season game the Commodores have played in a long time...maybe ever. If that seems hyperbolic, trust me...it's not. The Tennessee/Memphis game was one of the best games of the season, and one that most sports fans were watching. That means they'll be watching Tuesday at 9. The "they," in this case, is America. Vanderbilt's "big games" are often limited to regional coverage or ESPN Full Court and Raycom. Not Tuesday. Vanderblit hasn't lost in 30 games at Memorial, they've won 6 straight in conference, and beat the #1 team in America last season at home. They'll certainly have their hands full with the Volunteers, who are the #1 team in America right now. Still, if Vanderbilt can come away with a win, there is no reason to think Vanderbilt won't get a first-round bye in the SEC Tournament and a high seed come march.

Does anyone else think the "whiteout" concept is a little played out at this point?

Plus, in this case, the powers that be at Vandy aren't even doing it right. To have a really impressive whiteout, you need to put an XL white tshirt on every seat in the house and instruct people to put it on over whatever they're wearing. Telling the fans to "wear white" will produce mediocre results at best. Trust me, this whiteout will look half-assed.

That said, go 'Dores!

i've said before i thought it was probably a bad idea (especially against UT who's puke orange shows up so very well against white), but, if you are going and know about it, why not do it right?

I'm going with 18 and 14 today, assuming Drake falls and we don't get leapfrogged by Notre Dame in the AP (though it would be pretty [expletive] typical).
