We've got a long way to go. James Franklin's been saying this after every victory. Vandy fans don't want to believe it, but now that we're playing a team with premiere talent, we realize that having a good coach and a can-do attitude and even playing as a team isn't good enough when:
1. Your offensive line is still developing.
2. The other team's defensive line is quicker and faster than your running backs.
3. The other team has the best running back in college football.
4. The other team has the best wide receiver in college football.
5. And the other team, which has the above talent, isn't beating themselves, and is getting some favorable calls from the officials too.
There are no short cuts. All week, my friends from Auburn and Alabama and Georgia have been congratulating me for Vandy's great start. But if any other team in college football goes 3-0 by beating Elon and two unranked teams, people don't congratulate their fans. They say, "When are you going to play somebody?"
Right now, we're playing somebody.
Let's keep it in perspective and keep pulling for these Dores.
