Vanderbilt football is in good company... sort of

If I'd told you at the start of the season that this Vanderbilt football team after two games would bear comparison to Virginia Tech, you'd consider that a good thing, right?

Well, wrong.

Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech and UCLA are the only teams from BCS conferences to have 0-2 records. No kidding. Even Washington State has a win.

North Carolina and Oregon State took an early bye week with 0-1 records.

In all, 15 teams have 0-2 records. Those from the minor conferences are Marshall, Memphis and UAB from C-USA; Akron, Bowling Green and Eastern Michigan from Mid-Am; Colorado State, New Mexico and UNLV from the Mountain West; North Texas, Western Kentucky and Arkansas State from the Sun Belt; and San Jose State from the WAC.

New Mexico State, La-Monroe and FIU have 0-1 records.

At least it's 0-2 vs. I-A teams!

Although I guess that raises the question...why the heck does Vandy schedule games against teams like Northwestern instead of against Sun Belt and I-AA teams?


Yeah, although opening with Western Carolina didn't do us much good last season.
