The same Vanderbilt football? Commodores make a statement in Hawaii defeat

Yes, I will admit it. She was thinking about it, and I bet he wasn’t the only one.

Same old Vandy.

Because that was the one that showed up for Saturday night’s season opener in Hawaii. In the first 10 minutes of the game, the same old Vandy gave up a 37-yard touchdown without even touching the running back. Same old Vandy lost his first possession on a silly unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and his second possession on a fourth-and-five thrown out of bounds by quarterback Mike Wright.

Vanderbilt had been a 9.5-point favorite to beat rebuilding Hawaii. But the same old Vandy reduced that margin to 1.5 during the first quarter.

Oh, so little faith!

And that easy money.

It might not mean much in the long run this SEC season that Vanderbilt came to life and dominated a bad non-conference opponent with a convincing 63-10 score.
