Vanderbilt continues domination over Auburn

Last night at Memorial, the Lady Commodores handed the Lady Tigers their second loss of the season, further establishing Vanderbilt's mastery over Auburn in the 2008-2009 sports season.

Less than a month ago, our male hoopsters beat Auburn. Of course, we're following this train of thought only so we can once again mention our 14-13 victory over the then-No. 13 football Tigers, who all but assumed they'd do to the Dores what they'd been doing to us since 1955. But the Tigers lost and were so psychologically devastated that the only team they beat for the rest of the season was Tennessee-Martin, and they struggled to do that. (Of course, you could argue that we had problems of our own after that game, winning only one of our next seven games. But we did go to a bowl and beat the team with the highest bowl winning percentage of all time.)

Anyway, we've thoroughly dominated the Tigers if you don't count indoor men's tennis and women's soccer.

But if Auburn had a women's bowling team, you can rest assured we'd kick their butts. Vanderbilt is to women's collegiate bowling what the Freaking Florida Gators are to college football.

We can continue our domination when the baseball team visits the Plains on March 27-29 (6 p.m. CT Friday, 3 p.m. Saturday, 1 p.m. Sunday). If you live in the area, you should go. Plainsman Park is nice and the Auburn folks are always warm and friendly.

Unless you mention the numbers 14 and 13.
