VSL Hotline: Who Will Start? Edition

According to David Rutz of the Tennessean, Vanderbilt is Still Undecided on Starting QB. CBJ makes it seem like today's practice will decide who starts. Matt Wilson of the Nashville City Paper's story, "Vanderbilt's Nickson Just Fine in Practice." As Coach Johnson points out however, Chris is not getting hit in practice. The good news for Vanderbilt is there doesn't appear to be a drop-off between Nickson and Adams. Still, this uncertainty is not good for the team. The way Nickson plays (and is successful) involves him getting hit. While Mississippi State's defense isn't Auburn, there is no reason to think what happened against the Tigers won't happen again this Saturday. The overwhelming majority of you think Adams should start in Starkville, and I agree.

That's not to say Mackenzi Adams should be Vanderbilt's starter from here on out - I don't think he should. As impressive as Adams was last weekend, I think Nickson is still the more dynamic of the two. However, until the coaching staff (and perhaps more importantly Nickson himself) can be sure that Chris' shoulder can withstand the contact he is sure to absorb, he shouldn't be out there.

Mo Patton's Tennessean piece highlights how Vanderbilt's 5-0 start is based on them doing the "Little Things."

Athlon has a preview of Saturday's game that's worth a read. VSL's preview will be posted tomorrow.

In Vanderbilt television news, Dish Network has added the Commodore/Bulldog tilt to their pay-per-view line-up for Saturday. If you live outside Tennessee and Mississippi, ESPN Game Plan is still the only game in town. The bride to be and I will be Sam's.

The kick-off for the Vanderbilt/Georgia game will be announced Sunday afternoon. CBS opted to make the Alabama/Ole Miss their SEC Game of the Week, which means ESPN will decide between LSU/South Carolina and the Vanderbilt/Georgia game. Whichever game ESPN doesn't take will be shown on Raycom. I have to think an undefeated and SEC leading Vanderbilt team headed to Athens after the last two match-ups between these two squads would impress the ESPN brass. If the game was in Baton Rouge that would be one thing, but I have to think Vanderbilt/Georgia would have the edge.

Bobby, OUT.

I believe we should start Adams solely because he is 100%. This will allow Chris to get another weeks rest, unless we are perfoming poorly on offense, then Chris is available. I would rather have Chris rested with an extra week of healing for the Georgia game than risk more injury agains MSU.

Any woman will admit that deep down, that little box bearing the name Tiffany , will conjure up a world of starlets and beauty, and is highly coveted.
