Kneauxing the Enemy

Game Four

Vanderbilt

Conference: SEC

Record: 0-2

 

Vanderbilt is last in every team statistical category in the Southeastern Conference, except punting, kicking, and returning kicks.

 

In their lone SEC game against Georgia, the Commodores allowed 328 yards rushing in a 30-6 defeat. Six runners carried the ball for Georgia. The smallest rush per carry by a Bulldog runner was five yards per run.

 

In a 42-24 loss to Purdue, the Commodores allowed just 41 yards on the ground. It was because Purdue ran the ball only 18 times. The Boilermakers passed the ball for 509 yards. Nine of the 11 Purdue receivers averaged more than 10 yards per catch in the game.

 

Vanderbilt, so far, has shown no inclination to stop the offense of its opponent. They have not proved to be a serious threat to their adversaries' defense.

 

After two games, freshman defensive back Dashaun Jenkins has 21 tackles with 14 solos for the Commodores. He is the leading tackler on the squad. Jenkins has 17.5 yards in tackles for losses (tfls).

 

On offense, senior runningback Ke' Shawn Vaughn has rushed for 130 yards in two games.

 

Riley Neal, a 6'6 220 pound graduate student, plays quarterback. He is the team leader in touchdowns with two scoring passes. Neal has averaged 231.5 in passing in the first two Vandy contests.

 

The one thing the Commodores are efficient in this season is drawing penalties. They are averaging 11.5 penalties per game, tops in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

 

The Purple and Gold have to be cognizant of one thing about the Commodores. Vanderbilt has nothing to lose. They should not be surprised by anything from the Commodores, including seeing players and formations Vanderbilt has not used this season.
