Here's a string of quotations from a recent press conference with the Ol' Ballcoach:

"You talk about losing some heartbreakers. They’ve lost more than we have. Vandy's been a good team. They've been there with a lot of teams without winning a lot. They’re very capable. Hopefully, they’ll get started in about two weeks. I think we all admire Bobby Johnson and the coaches and Vanderbilt. Their players, I don’t think they get in trouble very much. They're student athletes. They do it the way you're supposed to do it."

Just from those 10 sentences, I've gotten some slogans for the season:

• "Vanderbilt football: Talk about losing some heartbreakers."
• "Vanderbilt
football: We've lost more than you have."
• "Vanderbilt
football: We've been there a lot without winning a lot."
• "Vanderbilt
football: We're very capable."
• "Vanderbilt
football: Hopefully we'll get started in about two weeks."
• "Vanderbilt
football: Our players don't get in trouble very much."
• "Vanderbilt
football: We do it the way you're supposed to do it."

Oh, and here's one based on a Spurrier quote from the Woody Widenhofer era:
• "Vanderbilt football: We don't have a talent problem, we have a winning problem."

Thanks, Coach.
