    I have no doubt that Derek Mason knows football. I’m sure he feels he is doing everything he can to help Vanderbilt win. However the “proof is in the pudding” when you consider we are 5 games into the season with one win, and that against the preseason last place ranked team in all of NCAA. Not to mention that it sadly appears there is only one more game, Old Dominion, they could possibly win. Like him or hate him, James Franklin brought a team in who knew how to coach and motivate. Derek Mason on the other hand seems to have brought some buddies over for a friendly card game. Unfortunately for the seniors, scores are kept, there are losers, and everyone doesn’t go out for ice cream when it’s over. Start looking for a HC vandy, or I have bought my last season ticket.

    Is it okay to put a 1st year coach on the hot seat when they go 0-2 and have a combined scoring margin of 78-10 after 2 games? Derek Mason hot seat? YES!

    Where is Jordan Matthews when we need him? Coach Derek Mason can’t figure out any type of offense and we aren’t even into the gauntlet of the season yet. Umass will be a real test to see if Derek Mason can put some points on the board.
