Commodores Demolish Tennessee 65-47

Well we figured out which team would show up tonight.

Vandy controlled this one throughout. Granted Tennessee is even worse offensively than Georgia or Alabama, but the Commodores committed to the defensive game and pretty much shut down Trae Golden. Tennessee is a significantly different team at home than on the road, but regardless, there's nothing sweeter than a good old-fashioned beat down of Puke Orange.

Game ball goes to Jeffery Taylor. 23 pts, 9 boards, 4 steals, 1 turnover. Dominant performance.

DANGEROUS game coming up on Saturday against Middle Tennessee. Something tells me that Stallings would love to take that one back if he could.

Vanderbilt is a very good defensive team and they played that way last night. Converesely, UT is a bad offensive team. This was a good, impressive win. We did not let them creep back into the game, and as CKS said in his post-game with The Voice Joe Fisher, the game was never in jeopardy after the middle of the first half.

MTSU is a dangerous game for a whole host of reasons. It should also be noted, that this season, is 2-3 against "State" teams. Can we get back to .500? I sure hope so.
