Open Thread: Your Thoughts on Tonight's Vanderbilt/Georgia Tech Game

Vanderbilt lost 56-31, giving up 28 straight after taking a 31-28 lead in the 3rd. Larry Smith went down in the 1st quarter with a hamstring injury, his prognosis going forward is not currently known. David Boclair's got a recap in the Nashville City Paper, and you can final the final stats here.

When commenting, you might want to consider:
- Georgia Tech's time of possession was 39:45 compared to 20:15 for Vanderbilt

- Vanderbilt lost 3 fumbles

- Freshmen Zac Stacy and Warren Norman combined for 134 yards on 19 carries and 2 TDs (Stacy had 8 carries for 75 yards and 2 TDs, Norman had 11 carries for 61 yards)

- Warren Norman had 245 all-purpose yards, 184 yards on kick-off returns, including an 80 yard TD return

- Tech had 597 yards of total offense (404 rushing; 193 in the air)

- Vanderbilt had 8 penalties for 67 yards; GT had 1 penalty for 9 yards

- Vanderbilt lead Georgia Tech 31-28 with 10:35 left in the 3rd

What did you think about tonight's game?

The game shows how the no huddle offense kills us. We averaged more yds per play than GT,but GT ran almost 30 more plays than us. Our D didn't play that well but was exhausted in the end. Our offense showed some promise especially with both Stacy and Norman in there. Norman and Stacy will be fun to watch if they can both stay healthy the next three years. it would be nice to find a playmaker at WR to go along with them, because then our offense would have some balancce to it.

In general I feel much better after this lost than Miss St., Ole Miss or Army but a loss is still a loss.

Okay, here is an anology.

VU: Western Carolina

Georgia Tech (or Florida): VU

It's just a mismatch!

It didn't look like a mismatch until the fourth quarter.

And Western Carolina sure as Hell didn't put up 31 points on us.

A loss is a loss, but give the team a little credit for finding an offensive rhythm after wandering in the desert all year.
