Jay Bilas on Vanderbilt: Show 'Em the Love

This from the college basketball guru's recent article on (subscription required), in which Bilas places the Commodores alongside Purdue, St. Mary's, Butler, Richmond, and Minnesota as one of a small fraternity of schools still carrying the mantle of the underhyped:
Vanderbilt: The Commodores have high quality at every position. They might not have a true point guard, but Brad Tinsley is an outstanding passer, John Jenkins is one of the best shooters in America and Jeffery Taylor is one of the country's best athletes. With the emergence of Festus Ezeli, Vandy has the chops to win the SEC. And the Dores have one of the truly outstanding coaches in the game in Kevin Stallings. If I had a coaching job to fill, I promise you that Stallings would be at the top of my list.
With hopes that we're within our fair use rights to post this content, VSL would like to extend our gratitude to Jay, whose (consistently dead-on) analysis has been very Commie-friendly in recent years.

Ken Pom has VU @ 11 and Sagarin has us at #14/9.

Hope they're right.

Go Dores!!
