Vandy Pulls Scholarship Offer?

That's what reports around the Internet are saying regarding QB Nash Nance. http://blogs.ajc.com/recruiting/2010/01/28/ten-at-10-nances-deny-report-that-vanderbilt-rescinds-scholarship-offer/

Things appear to have gotten ugly between the 2 sides. I'm not gonna bash the kid. I can't even imagine what it must be like to be 18 years old and have the pressure to pick college programs like these kids have to. That's why the NCAA should institute an early signing period for football players, similar to what they have for basketball. While it wouldn't stop these issues totally I think it would limit them a great deal.

(BTW point 5 and 7 are also of note for Vandy fans)

Still pumped from last nights win. Booked my flight down to Nashville for the UK game about 30 minutes after the game. Probably going to live to regret that.

It will not be a regrettable experience. I'm pumped to get up there as well.

Is it true that a very impressive power RB has now uncommitted from ut and is going to sign with VU (because ut wanted to turn him into a LB?)

And that he has an SAT score of 850 total? (that part has to be a concern to any VU fan with a shred of integrity)

If we're letting guys in with 850 SAT's and below 20 on the ACT, there is no reason to have records such as.....oh.... 2 and 10.

Those who agree with this need to let David Williams know how you feel. I plan to do exactly that.
