    Mississippi shows no life in 28-14 loss to Vanderbilt

    OLE Miss has turned into the biggest disappointment in the SEC so far this year. If you cannot beat Vanderbilt and Jacksonville State at home you are not a good football team from top to bottom. Coach Nutt has pinned his hopes on a kid like Masoli to run his team but things are not working out. He threw two picks yesterday and one was returned for a touchdown by Vanderbilt. Mississippi is a team in disarray and there does not seem to be much help on the horizon. They have not played an upper echelon team in the SEC and they are 1 and 2 on the season.

    OLE Miss is supposed to have superior athletes with the big play potential yet it was Vanderbilt that had all the big plays. Vanderbilt’s first score was on a 96 yard, thirteen play drive, culminated by a 35 yard run by Zac Stacy. That should not happen in your building against a team picked last in the conference. Then the interception for a touchdown, an 80 yard run for a touchdown by Fowler and a fifteen yard td by QB Smith who went untouched into the end zone for the score.

    Vanderbilt was not dominated on either side of the ball as should be the case in most of their SEC contests.  They hit hard from the secondary and linebacker positions. Give credit and congratulations to Vanderbilt’s new head coach Caldwell for preparing his team well and having them excited to play. I can’t say the same for Coach Nutt.
