1) Analysts split on Vandy Bowl potential
Watching ESPNU's SEC Preview show is always a double edged sword. On the one hand it is nice to see what the analysts have to say, while on the other it is generally crushing to see them homer up or stick with the established powers. While watching the 2012 edition of the show the two analysts agreed to disagree on the Commodores Bowl hopes this fall.
The main job of feeding the viewer information fell to former Georgia Tech QB Tom Luginbill. While I have no idea why exactly the ex-Yellow Jacket is qualified to speak on such matters he predicted that Vandy would struggle with both Northwestern and Wake Forest and not go bowling.
The other talking head in this instance was former Georgia Bulldog Matt Stinchcomb. Stinhcomb at least has some SEC experience and he was of the opinion Vandy would have too much for both those teams and even suggested they might pick up an upset victory along the way.
2) Dinner at Jordan's Place
Jordan Rodgers might need to ask big brother Aaron for some bail out money this season after his open house invite to his offensive line. The line play has been one of the highlights of camp, and Rodgers is looking to show his appreciation to those tasked with keeping him clean on Saturdays by inviting them over for dinner now he has his own place. With fourteen offensive linemen on the roster all weighing at LEAST 275 pounds he might want to hope they don't all show up on the same evening.
3)Three True Freshmen to Play
On Sunday three of Vanderbilt's newest players were informed they were going to have a role on Saturdays this fall. For defensive end Caleb Azubike, linebacker Darreon Herring and running back Brian Kimbrow there will be no red shirt season and all will see playing time and be expected to contribute for the black and gold.
Kimbrow has made as much noise as any player, rookie or veteran, in camp and the buzz was only increased after his 55 yard touchdown dash in the main fall practice scrimmage. The former Memphis East running back has blazing speed of the kind that has not always been common in Nashville and also has a knack for picking up information which is uncommon in freshmen. Odds are he will be making bigger noise in the SEC this fall.
