Hear that America? It's YOUR Vanderbilt Commodores

OK. So things have been quiet on the VSL for a while. As it turns out, becoming a full-fledged adult sort of sucks (and leaves less time for the things that really matter in life, like breaking down game film on Vanderbilt's 3-string offensive line). But will Football season just 29 days away (bought your season tickets yet?), this member of the VSL Braintrust (at least for tonight) is going to get back in the saddle.

Big news today from West End as Vanderbilt announced it had reached a 5-year deal to have WLAC AM 1510 in Nashville be the flagship station for all Commodore football and men's basketball games.  With this announcement, Vanderbilt trades up from a classic rock station with limited signal outside Nashville, to a station that reaches into 25 states at night. For what it's worth, I think this is a fantastic move with nothing but upside. The AM signal will give Vanderbilt a wider audience outside the Nashville area.

In the Nashville area, WLAC is likely to reach a larger audience than WRQQ 97.1 did (whether it's format was classic rock or contemporary Christan).

We''re taking over, America...get use  to it.

This is a big coup for the Dores! As a Georgia Bulldog fan, I have grown up listening to other SEC teams on the radio to catch the action around the conference. WLAC was always a Vol station. This means that Vandy has replaced Tennessee as the team of choice on the Tennessee's radio giant. Congrats to all who made it happen.
