Re: 13.5 favorites vs. Vandy
There's no doubt this team plays better at home than away, file that under 'sure thing' at this point. Vandy has some pieces but I think we will win comfortably.
Of course I said that about the Georgia game, too.
Mind you, Georgia was 3 times sharper on offense versus us than versus Clemson, and our defense was caught a little flat footed. 30 points should have been enough to win. But I digress.
Still Vanderbilt, while solid, is no Georgia. They're just not. Not offensively anyway, not even in the same stratosphere. They play disciplined defense but we should be able to run on them with my new favorite Gamecock, Mike 'Bad Mothertrucker' Davis. That of course sets up the pass, and Shaw does the most damage on play action.
I think we can impose our will on Vanderbilt. Much like Georgia's offensive line had something to prove against us, our defense will be playing with a chip on their shoulder. And, like Georgia, coming home to do it is just what the doctor ordered.
