LOVE the work ethic.
Both Stoops and Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason have pressure on them to perform or be pulled from their jobs. One coach will be safe, and the other may lose his job after today’s game.
The Herald takes a look at matchups between the two teams and gives a game prediction.
The Cats have been turnover-prone this season, and it may be a challenge to hold onto the ball if Vandy starts looking for turnover opportunities.
Willis was concerned about his defense, but now he’s concerned about his public image. He says it taught him a valuable lesson.
The value of Jones on this defense can’t be calculated; he offers great ability and great energy to help his team.
