Default The Vandy Build-Up Thread

Lets get it started.

I can not wait to see this team play Saturday. Yes, its Vandy but the emotions will be high and I think this team will adopt Coach Elliott's personality and come out with a ton of energy and passion.

Williams-Brice should be absolutely rocking, IMO.


Biggest concern about this game is Vandy's defense. They are good. Really good. Now that Mangus has complete control, I'll be interested to see what he can put together as far as a gameplan especially if he has to play Orth and/or Scarnecchia.

Any update on Nunez condition?

Not sure what to expect from the defense. It doesn't like much is going to change coaching wise other than Elliott being hands on? Vandy's offense isn't the best. They have a real nice running back in Raph Webb and Trent Sheffield is a promising receiver but they have QB issues. This should be a good game for the defense and give them some confidence going into the bye week.

Ironically, I think this team will be more fired up to play for Spurrier in his absence than when he was still the coach.

I'm not sure of the result but I think this team will be fired up and show a lot of effort.

Absolutely. I'm not sure if we are going to play much better but I do believe that the effort is going to be there and I think we will be more organized offensively than we have been under Spurrier. I think we will see A LOT more up tempo and a lot more zone read once Nunez gets healthy. Now that Coach Mangus has full control, I'm anxious to see if he can get us back on track.

I'm not sure what all Elliott can do about the defense except more man coverage?

piss and vinegar can only take you so far.

If Nunez can go I say we win this one going away. Everyone on offense will be stoked, I think, for the change in offensive mentality.

If Orth (and I'll throw Mitch in there too) I'm not sure. If Spurrier couldn't get pocket passing qb's to perform then I'm not holding my breath for his assistance to get the job done.

That being said, I'm much more excited about this than I was three days ago.

The key to this game is the same as the Missouri game...Like Mizzou, Vandy is not very good...But their defense is tough and active up front...If our Oline decides to block somebody, we'll win...If we get the usual turnstile action, it will be another embarrassing loss in an awful season

That would be a little awkward if they don't change that intro...

I've not been one to complain on here about what we've done on the field. However, I've almost quit watching our games based on the lack of pressure on the WRs.

I am sick and tired of 10 yard cushions on the line of scrimmage for WRs. If we get burned, so be it. At least line up and hit a WR on the line to throw him off his route and get physical. What we have done so far hasn't worked. We have made Lambert and Harris look like Heisman QBs.

If that is the only change we make under Elliott, it will be a step in the right direction. Stop lining up DBs 10 yards off the receivers. Get physical and hit them. Make them earn those receptions with their routes and slants. Being on the line can also help with the run. That crap has to stop now.

Line up, be aggressive, show some energy and passion, and get physical on defense. Take this energy and start knocking the crap out of some people.

I hope you're right. Vandy isn't going to let up on us because we're down right now. Mason and his boys are tired of being the rock bottom of the SEC and have something to prove right now. If we aren't ready, they're going steamroll us.

I hope Elliott's first game is an awesome one.

I'm really interested to see how Mangus attacks Vandy's defense. Vandy's defense usually gives us problems because they play complex coverages that confuse our QBs but with Mangus at the helm, I see us trying to punch them in the mouth and get into 3rd and manageable yardage. Playing ahead of the sticks is key.
