Tim Thompson makes a Shittu comp, discusses FBI scandal

Vanderbilt hoops color commentator Tim Thompson talks Commodore hoops, and gives a well-thought-out NBA comp to Simi Shittu, as well as talk about the overall athleticism and talent for this year's team. Tim also adds his thoughts on the ongoing FBI trial and also discusses the G League's new policy that it will allow select players to enter its ranks out of high school. This episode is guaranteed to get VU fans excited about the upcoming season.


SEC hoops talk, and the constant state of VU football

Chris Lee and Seabass talk about how VU football is following a familiar script, and Seabass answers a question about who he'd like if Vanderbilt made a coaching change. Plus, talk about how hyper-competitive SEC hoops is after the Commodores were picked eighth by the media in its preseason hoops poll.


How can Vanderbilt maximize its offensive talent?

Over the last two Southeastern Conference seasons, Vanderbilt can't get stops defensively, which means the Commodores have to score tons of points to win. But they're not doing that either despite having some talented offensive pieces. Chris Lee and Norman Jordan look at ways Vanderbilt can do things differently on offense without making wholesale changes or dramatically changing the playbook.


Mitch Light looks back to Florida, ahead to Kentucky

Chris Lee and Vanderbilt sideline reporter Mitch Light discuss Vanderbilt football. The two talk about the Florida game and answer questions on that and the upcoming Kentucky game, including which VU players could get drafted (including one whose stock may be rising), the effect of not having Ke'Shawn Vaughn in the game, and Mitch's thoughts on upcoming opponents Ole Miss and Arkansas based on watching them play on Saturday.


It's all in how you look at things

Vanderbilt's problems with athletics, and particularly with football, aren't because it doesn't have smart people. So is the problem really in how those people look at things? Chris Lee and Seabass make a case for that on several levels (including the Ke'Shawn Vaughn lack-of-playing-time issue), including the decades-old, pervasive culture that's also had a hand in bringing VU down. The two also talk about why cornerbacks coach Terrence Brown has done an underrated job, and talk hoops for a...


Norman Jordan reviews Georgia game, looks ahead to Gators

Chris Lee and VU football color commentator Norman Jordan discuss elements of the Georgia game, including VU going with four defensive linemen for parts. Norman also discusses playing through injuries, Saturday's procedure penalties, and what getting Charles Wright back will mean. Finally, the two give their keys to beating Florida.


Guessing lines on VU's remaining games, and why recruiting stars matter

Mitch Light and Chris Lee talk about what went well and what didn't in VU's 41-13 loss at Georgia. The two also talk about the talent differential between the two teams, and look at the remaining schedule and guesstimate what the betting lines would be at this point of the season.


Corey Chavous shares thoughts on AD vacancy, VU football

Corey Chavous talks about the vacant AD position and the reason why he wouldn't put himself on the selection committee. The Vandy alum and NFL Draft expert also talks about Vanderbilt's pass defense and coverage responsibilities, reflects some on his VU career, gives a professional assessment of Kyle Shurmur, and more.


Will VU's football freshmen have an expanded role?

VU color commentator Norman Jordan discusses a number of topics, including some red flags from the last couple of weeks, and a potential expanding role for a few VU freshmen on offense. The two also talk about Kyle Shurmur's struggles, motivation-related issues, and more, as VU comes off a 31-27 win over Tennessee State.


Explosive plays make a difference

Chris Lee and Mitch Light discuss how explosive plays were a difference in VU's 31-27 win over TSU, and also discuss the good and bad aspects of the game. The two also discuss VU alum Walker Buehler, who'll get a huge start for the Dodgers on Monday, talk about a key Vanderbilt baseball injury that broke as they podcasted, and more.


Corey Chavous speaks on Vanderbilt's schemes, NFL prospects

NFL Draft expert Corey Chavous (, one of VU's greatest players ever, was on hand for Saturday's South Carolina games. He gives brief thoughts on what VU is running on each side of the ball, gives a quick analysis of VU's pro prospects, and talks a bit about the AD search and the athletic program on the whole.


Has anything changed with football? Plus, basketball practice thoughts

Chris Lee and Seabass discuss whether, despite all kinds of offseason coaching changes and other things, anything has really changed in Vanderbilt's on-field football approach. There's also some talk about what Chris saw at Thursday's hoops practice, as well as some good vibes from the hoops recruiting circle.


A bad game. So now what?

Chris Lee and Vanderbilt color commentator Norman Jordan talk about what happened to Vanderbilt in a 37-14 loss to South Carolina, and look ahead to the rest of the schedule. What's fixable and what's not? What can VU do about what can be fixed? And, what's the most likely path to a bowl?


A disappointing day against South Carolina

From start to finish, there wasn't much to be happy with in a 37-14 loss to South Carolina. Chris Lee and Mitch Light give some credit to the Gamecocks, then discuss some things they didn't like from a VU standpoint, as well as look back at moments of resiliency during the Derek Mason era.


Joe Fisher previews South Carolina game, reviews the season to date

Vanderbilt radio play-by-play man Joe Fisher joins the podcast to talk about the Notre Dame loss, give his thoughts on the season so far (including what's surprised him) and gives his keys to beating South Carolina.


Right on the verge of better things

Between the AD vacancy, potential hoops recruiting success ahead and a huge, winnable conference football game days ahead, Vanderbilt athletics may be on the verge of better things. Chris Lee and Seabass discuss what has become a very interesting football season, and more.


South Carolina could be the biggest game of Derek Mason's career

The Commodores prepare for a huge game with South Carolina. Chris Lee and color commentator Norman Jordan discuss that, as well as good and bad things from the Notre Dame game. Also, do the Las Vegas odds on VU's recent games say something about the Commodores?


Some encouraging signs in a loss to Notre Dame

Vanderbilt lost 22-17 to Notre Dame in a game where it out-played Notre Dame in some respects. The Commodores missed some opportunities, and some personnel-selection questions linger, but, after three games, there are a number of signs that this may be a good football team. Chris Lee and VU sideline announcer Mitch Light discuss in Monday's podcast.


Greg Sankey on what David Williams meant to VU, the SEC

Southeastern Conference commissioner Greg Sankey joined our podcast to talk about the contributions of Vanderbilt's outgoing athletic director, David Williams. Sankey reflects on how Vanderbilt athletics rose throughout Williams's tenure and what Williams meant to the league behind the scenes. The commissioner also talks about how coveted the AD position at VU is. It's a can't-miss, special edition of the VandySports podcast.


The moment of truth is upon us

David Williams has stepped down, and believe it or not, even with all the negative publicity of the last six weeks over its lack of commitment to sports, Vanderbilt still has at least one tremendous outside candidate interested in the job. This presents an opportunity for chancellor Nick Zeppos, who now has the opportunity to make a home-run hire, to silence his critics. Chris Lee and Seabass discuss that, as well as an impressive start to the football season that has raised their eyebrows...
