Don't call it a comeback . . . .

Wednesday, December 31, 2008


What a year 2008 has turned out to be. Plucky little Davidson makes the elite 8, and now Vandy wins its first bowl game since 1955!!!! Hell, they hadn't even been in one since 1982, their last winning season before this year's mighty 7-6 (4-4 SEC). They've now been to four bowls EVER. True, it was a glorified home game in the Gaylord Hotels' Music City Bowl. But BC (entering at 9-4) was a reasonably tough opponent and came in with the nation's longest bowl win streak at 8.

For those of you who watched, it was an uggggly game. Vandy had little offense, scoring three field goals and one fluky touchdown on a deflected punt return. They rotated a three-QB platoon, openly signalling whether each play would be a pass, a run, or a prun (rass?)--none very effective. On the other hand, Vandy had no penalties and no turnovers. Yeah, no penalties!!! That's the kind of excitement we Vandy fans have come to demand.

So, Go Dores! Can't wait until 2061.

Nine punts. The Vandy punter was their bowl MVP, for good reason.
