VandyMania Prediction

What a great start to the 2005 season. Wow! 3-0. The Commodores will have a excellent chance to move to 4-0 if they can keep focused this week and take care of business. Richmond comes in with an offense struggling for success. The Spiders did surprise Maine last week, 26-21. I expect Vandy to get the job done Saturday and dominate the Spiders. This team is having too much fun. They don't want midnight to strike.
