Vandy gets most lopsided SEC victory since Ole Miss in 2007
Vandy's 28-14 win over Ole Miss on Saturday was its most-lopsided SEC victory since its 31-17 victory over Ed Orgeron's Ole Miss team in Nashville in 2007. In fact, Vandy has only four double-digit SEC victories in the past seven years — the two wins over Ole Miss, the 17-6 win at South Carolina in 2007 and the 31-13 victory over Mississippi State in Nashville in 2004.
Such things don't happen often. But this team wouldn't know much about Vandy's history. A whopping 67 percent of the players on the field for the Commodores on Saturday (37 of 55) did not play on the 2008 Music City Bowl team, which won four league games, but all in cardiac fashion. And more than a third of the Commodores who saw the field Saturday were in high school in 2008.
