    Get the lastest news, reports and fun facts your favorite college team the Vanderbildt Commedores!!


    Nashville TN - In what could be called the greatest win in program history.. VANDY BEATS #3FLORIDA STATE.

    1st Quater...

    Vandy opened the game on defense. Nerves were high and butterflies in every Commedore players stomach. the biggest game of the year. The first National Broadcast game of the 2010 season. FSU took the ball and drove the field with Vandy unable to slow the FSU rushing attack. When FSU got the ball down to inside the redzone the Vandy D came alive. forcing FSU to kick the easy chip shot from 44Yrds out. 3-0 FSU. On Vandy's first possession the offense looked out of sync. "i think the nerves got us on that first series." said coach T2Express Vandy punted from about the 50yrd line and pinned FSU up against its own goal line. On the first snap of FSU's possession Vandy got into the FSU back field and MLB Marve made the TFL giving Vandy 2 points. This was the turning point for Vandy. They found they could score and hopes where high. Vandy got the ball back again when John Stokes picked of FSU QB Ponder at the 10 yrd line. the Vandy offense roared to life Passing the ball downt he field until Larry Smith connected with WR A. Dunham from 9yards out giving Vandy its first lead of the game. 9-3 after 1

    2nd Qtr

    Again FSU was on the offensive driving Vandy back up into the red zone.. again the defense roared to life forcing this time a long FG try by FSU from 55yrds out. 9-6 Vandy.. Vandy's offense again started to explode in the air. Larry Smith lead the team down to the FSU 42 where drive stalled. Not to be out done Coach T2Express called on the Field goal unit to try a 54yrd field goal. 12-6 Vandy with just 48 seconds left in the first half. FSU lead the charge down the field this time with Ponder's air attack... it took vandy nearly the length of the field to figure out the passing scheme. with 10 seconds left Ponder dropped back and threw to his left. out of No where FS M. Chavez picked the ball off and raced for the endzone.. Unbelieveably made it 6pts for Vandy.. This was the nail in the coffin. 19-6 vandy goes into the locker room.

    3Rd Qtr.

    Vandy got the ball to start and out came the ground game.. on the legs of last years back up G. Miller Vandy started pounding the rock. Vandy was able to drive the ball down to the 12yrd line whre they were turned away by the FSU defense.. 22-6 Vandy.

    4th Qtr..

    Vandy had driving the ball into FSU territory when Larry Smith was sacked on the FSU 42yrd line.. Coach T2Expressed he would not let FSU win in any phase of the game and brought out the Field Goal unit.. This time from 59yrds out.. and through the up rights it went 25-6 Vandy. On the next drive FSU finally figured out the Vandy D when Ponder caught the secondary sleeping B. Reed took the catch 69yrds to the endzone for FSU only TD of the game. 25-13 Vandy.. Again Vandy coffin kicked FSU back to the goal line. FSU tried running the option left. and MLB Cris Marve took the pitch and gave vandy the ball inside FSU 5yrd line setting up a G. Miller TD run finishing the scoring for the game 32-13 VANDY

    Damn. That's a hell of a upset.

    A 59 Yd FG. That's unheard of. EA screwed up on the FG's this year.

    I told you guys... Vandy is on the rise.. and yes G.. that FG was insane.. i thought i was just pissing into the wind but bam.. through the up rights it went. and to TRude... it was a hell of a game man.. i know the score doesnt show it but it could have very easily went in FSUs favor.. but the INT for 6 was a killer along with the saftey and the option pitch pick off. good luck to Free shoes U on the rest of your season.

    GG man. Just one of those games you hate to have against a good player. yeah fellas id hate to play the Commodore team when they play like that. FSU had a wakeup call and vows to play better from here on out.

    #20 Vandy (1-0) Vs UCONN (1-0)

    Vandy continues to Roll...

    Coming off what is currently the biggest win in program history (upset of FSU) Vandy traveled up to UCONN to take on the Huskies... Vandy took the ball and did little with it.. UCONN would take the ball and knock in a 3 point shot.. Vandy responded in kind with Gaston Miller ripping off a 45yrd run down the sideline to the 1yrd line. Vandy capped the drive with a 1yrd plunge.. Vandy shut down the Huskie offense and got the ball right back. To the air larry smith lead the Commodores. and to the endzone they went. 14-3.. Again Vandy halted the Huskie offense. and again to the Air Larry Smith took the Vandy offense. and in the endzone they went 21-10.. Just prior to half time UConn busted loose and strolled in for 6 to bring the score 21-17.. on the ensuing kickoff the Vandy special teams brought the kick 99yrds back to maintain the lead at 28-17. After half Vandy punched in another TD through the air. 35-17.. Both teams traded back and forth and Vandy added another TD taking the lead to 42-17.. UCONN scored on a late TD toss to bring the final score 42-24 Vandy..

    #24 Vandy Vs USF

    After coming off a devastating loss at the hands of hated rival Ole Miss.. Vandy found it self in a very tough spot.. Traveling down to USF to take on the bulls a week ahead of a key match up against LSU next week.. The game froze so i took a sim this week and did my team come through for me.. 22-10 Vandy wins... a pretty sleepy game Vandy ran the ball 40 times for 120 yards and 2 TDs and larry smith was off going 18-38 for 1 TD and 158yrds and 1 INT. Gaston miller had a solid performance rushing 25 times for 90 yards. Larry Smith acounted for 14 points and FB Van Rensburg who sees more blocks than carries got a TD on the day also. Defensive line man A. Smotherman was POG with 10tkls 8 for loss and 4 sacks.. pretty exciting stat from a nose guard.


    Vandy has finally gotten out of non conference play unbeaten. Vandy is 1 win away from tying last season total wins(5). a Win against LSU would help Coach T2Express meet his goal of going 10-2.. and possible shot at the SEC title. if they can over come Alabama in the final game of the season.. there looks to be 1 major hurdle to get to alabama and a sec title game and that looks to be at Arkansas who is ranked just one spot ahead of Vandy.

    4 of the Next 6 games for vandy come against top 20 teams. #2 LSU #1 FLA #10 Bama #16 Arkansas. the only road game against a ranked team is @ #16 Arkansas.

    Vandy has not lost at home and has claimed a win against a top 5 oppent this season after knocking off then #3 FSU 32-13.

    #17 Vandy Vs #2 LSU

    Vandy Get Its Ass Handed by LSU..

    Vandy looked like shit, played like shit.. the gap of talent between the top tier teams in the SEC and Vandy has become clear so far this season. Ole Miss Dominated. LSU Dominated. Vandy lacks the talent pool from which to be able to compete. although this year is not a total devastation it is a bit disappointing that clearly we cannot hang with the top tier teams. probably something do with finishing with the 118th recruiting class. it will take a little big of time to catch up to these schools. thankfully vandy has some non user games coming up and hopefully can finish 9-3 this season. which still isnt to bad considering last year we went 5-7. 9-3 will look nice and hopefully send vandy to a good bowl game. and start the revival of Commedore spirit. Vandy goes down 49-0. Simply out classed.


    Held to 88 yards. 13 runs 7 yards....
    7-25 for 81 passing.

    5INTs. 1 Fumble. 33%on 3rd down.

    Compared to
    44 runs for 261 5TDs
    6-7 for 98 passing. 1 TD.

    1INT 1TD 66% on 3rd Down.

    #20 Vandy Vs Georgia

    Vandy Gets its first SEC victory.

    VANDY hammers UGA...

    This game was dominated by Vandy.. we got a little sloppy in the late 3rd and 4th quaters on defense. gave up 2 KORs for TDs.. my kicker is terrible he has been replaced.

    Offense looked great ran the ball all over UGA. 48 carries 235 4 TDs
    The passing attack continues to shine. 15-31 for 304 4 TDs 2INTs

    Defense played great minus the last half of the 3rd. it was 35-13 at one point.

    The kickoff return sparked the Bulldogs to try and come back but Vandy held on to get its first win in the SEC.

    UGA's QB passer rating 236... lol 16-21 for 302 4TDs. Vandy back up QB was 1-1 for 18yards and passer rating of 581.2 so i guess that evens it all out.

    Vandy takes on the Game Cocks next week at home. Next 4 Game stretch is pretty crucial to the Vandy Cause.. SC, @Ark, FLA, UK, Bama..

    At least Vandy is no longer the little Sister of the SEC.

    #17 Vandy Vs South Carolina

    Vandy Improves to 2-2 in conference play.

    Vandy held off the Gamecocks to move to 6-2 and become bowl eligible. Vandy also surpassed last seaons total wins(5) by grabbing its 6th win.

    Vandy brought out its Spread Option attack and the game cocks didnt really have an answer.

    1 qtr
    From the opening kickoff it was Vandy all the way forcing the fumble. but vandy couldnt do anything with it and turnover the ball after going to for a fake FG. But both teams would score 7 in the first period both coming from passes inside the 7yard line for each team. 7-7 after 1.

    2 qtr
    SCU was able to strike first in the 2nd connecting with J. Barnes for 49yrds to take the 13-7 lead. SC would shank the kick off the left upright leaving the score 13-7. 13 seconds later Vandy replied back with a 67yard pass to A. Dunham. 14-13 Vandy. SC drove the ball back down the field and managed to get a 35yrd FG to retake the lead. 16-14 but Vandy would answer with a 2:19 drive capped by a Smith to Van Rensburg TD pass from 7yards out.

    3 qtr
    After half time Vandy went back to the option with larry smith keeping the ball and slicing up the SC defense. Norman would get the pitch to add to the Vandy lead now at 28-16. SC was quick to strike adding a 70yrd pass to pull with in 23-28. Smith was picked off a the 24yrad line and SC again looked to regain the lead. this time a 50yrd pass to take the lead 31-28. But vandy would score as time ran out of the 3rd when Smith hooked up with J. Cole on a option pass from 13yards out. 35-31 Vandy After 3.

    4 qtr

    In the fourth there wasnt a lot of action mostly Vandy rushing the ball trying to eat as much clock as possible and keep the SC offense contained. Vandy would add a Norman TD after a long run by QB Larry Smith who went off this week.

    #17 Vandy Vs #24 Arkansas

    Vandy puts on a road show infront of rowdy Arkansas Fans..


    Vandy rolled in to play the Razorbacks and it was a Commedore Beat Down.

    1st Qtr

    Vandy took the early lead and never let the hogs get close.. Vandy struck first on a 2yrd dash by G. Miller to give the early 7-0 lead. Arkansas would go 3 and out and Vandy got the ball back. Vandy brought out its air attack on this drive only to have Larry Smith get picked off and the hogs took it back to the house. for here it was an airal assualt that is common place in Nashville. Smith connected with B. Barden(TE) for 58yrds to go up 14-7. Then on an option play Larry Smith would take it down the left sideline for a 75yard TD pass. 21-7 Vandy after 1 qtr.

    2nd Qtr

    Vandy continued its roll adding another Larry Smith TD run this time from 7yards out. 28-7 Vandy. with a little over 2mins Vandy decided it wasnt settling for less than 6points and pulled the ol fake FG. Funk to Norman for 6 from 18yrds out. 35-7 Vandy. The hogs would get a FG after a 45 yard KO return. 35-10 at half time.

    3rd Qtr.

    Vandy would sputter here throwing 3 INTs this quarter. but only gave up 3 points to the hogs to make the score 35-13 after 3qtrs.


    4th Qtr

    The Razorbacks came to life a little bit in this qtr. but it was not enough to over come any of the work put up by Vandy. Ark would get its first TD of the game on a 0yrd pass to Wright. they would miss the 2pt conversion. 35-19 Vandy. Vandy throw up 14points in a flash first on an WR option pass. Smith Connected with Terrence Jeffers for 79yrd TD. 42-26 Vandy. on the next Hog possesion Mallett would get picked off by star CB. J. Graham and he scored from 44yds out.

    I'm mad you got dc'ed against florida, looked liek u were going to win that game from the sounds of it. Playing a CPU in the SEC title game is never fun, but good luck the rest of the way. You need florida to lose it's last 2 remaining sec games i guess to still get in

    Vandy Goes to a Bowl.

    Vandy took on #11 Ohio State.

    Vandy struck first on a trick play.. the ol fake FG.. the Vandy Offense was out matched and under manned. Vandy played lights out until the last 2 mins of the first half. Vandy is unable to establish a ground game. Vandy loses its first Bowl Game under T2Express.


    2010 SEASON RECAP...


    2010 was a good year. Vandy Won its opener vs then #2 Florida State. things looked great until running into rival Ole Miss. Vandy went down 35-3. Vandy would bounce back only to get blanked a couple weeks later vs LSU. Vandy played FLA and would have won but had to take a sim after the OD was restarted. Vandy would lose again this time Vs CPU Bama. Vandy lost in its first bowl to Ohio State.

    All in all Vandy had a very successful season. while not quite meeting Coach T2Expess expectations of a SEC title shot, the season was definitely not a bust. In all of Vandys 4 losses it is quite clear that Vandy lacks the talent to be a top tier team. Hopefully the offseason will be good to the Commedores and hopefully Vandy can be compete with the big kids.
