Sure, it's way too early to be talking about bowls, but that doesn't mean everybody's not doing it. I've been tracking ESPN's bowl projections since the start of the season, and each of their so-called experts have listed 10 SEC teams from the get-go.

Of course, Vanderbilt was nowhere to be seen in the beginning. Here's how the Commodores have progressed in the eyes of Mark Schlabach and Bruce Feldman:

• Preseason: No bowl (Schlabach); no bowl (Feldman)

• After we beat Miami(O) 38-13: No bowl; no bowl

• After we beat South Carolina 24-17: Music City Bowl; no bowl

• After we beat Rice 38-21: Music City Bowl; no bowl

• After we beat Ole Miss 23-17: Liberty Bowl; Independence Bowl

Ah, Shreveport. We can only hope.

Here are the complete projections:
