A funny thing happened on Sunday of this week, as an idea I floated out as on a whim came to fruition. While planning my humble blog’s preview, I thought it would be a fantastic idea to seek some input from the Vanderbilt athletics beat and from some of the elite national baseball writers. Much to my surprise, not only did I get responses, I got great answers and a new Part 5 of the Season Preview was born.
In this segment, I’ll look at what the nation expects of Vanderbilt, breaking down the position in the polls and asking actual, real journalists i) what they expect out of Vanderbilt in 2013 and ii) what player need to step it up for the Commodores to compete for a national championship.
It’s been a bit of a crazy couple of weeks for me, between my social life, work life and following the Commodores down in Nashvegas and, starting in a few hours, Omaha. I’ve been strapped for time and haven’t really had a chance to update things on here, both baseball related and otherwise (e.g., Michelle Bachmann being the greatest threat to American liberty, Hangover II being good but not great, how awesome White Lies was in concert, a couple of fun books I’m reading, and how amazing Game of Thrones has been).
This will be my last weekend traveling the nation with the Vandy boys on their way to a national title. I hope to post some thoughts from my travels at some point next week and get back into a regularly scheduled program of posting.
