I didn't realize Cunningham was SEC pitcher of the week a while back.

From that preview article, in case anyone needs help getting up some Vandy hate.

Beyond that, another reason they suck is their unearned elitism. As an elitist, nothing rankles me more than people who have the mien of elitism without the credentials. The alumni and students of aTm literally think their school is Yale, when it is basically Arky, sans flagship status. They will talk your damned ear off about how academically great the school is, because you have to be in the top 10% in your Texas public school to get in. That would be like LSU students bragging about their brainpower because they got the 3.0 and 21 ACT score required to get a TOPS Scholarship, or Ugga students doing the same. Actually, Ugga students kind of do do this, but not to us, because they recognize they are, at best, in triple A. aTm thinks they're Yale. Seriously. Yale.
Pretty sure there's not one Aggie who thinks we're Yale, or wants to be.

You're right, much closer to MIT than Yale

I get that Vandy is a small, private school and A&M is a behemoth with a gigantic fan base…but a message board game thread with only 34 (!!!) total posts? C'mon Dores! Do better!

This was right after the first inning. How prophetic.

Well, at least it has freed up my Friday. Will check back in an hour or so to see if we are going to be run ruled.

Cult of milkmen author is likely named Luke. One day he will meet a milkman only to learn the feared and hated milkman is his father.

Seriously, no. In my 40+ year career as a chemical engineer, the single most stupid engineering graduate I ever worked with was from MIT. I still remember the time when she asked me what the difference in a pump and a compressor was. She explained that MIT had a concept known as the "gentleman's B". If you were smart enough to get into MIT, you deserve to pass all your courses with at least a B.

I find it interesting that he would boast so openly about being an elitist.

In my experience, most "elitists" are actually quite unhappy and insecure and therefore very triggered by anyone that seems to be self-assured and comfortable in their own skin.

Way to tell on yourself my dude.

Here is your superior intellect. Teaching can be an admirable profession, but hopefully he received a significant scholarship from what is now a $80K/year private school, or he's rooting for another Biden term to forgive his student debt.

Vanderbilt alum ('04) named Andrew. Baseball enthusiast, satirist, teacher, writer, former ne'er-do-well, reverse vampire, etc. In college, I sat right behind the umpire for basically every game, as the rich people who bought those seats never showed up. In '07, the rich people started showing up more often. Now, I have to buy bleacher seats and actually sit in them. I have covered, opined, and given nicknames to members of the Vanderbilt baseball team on Anchor of Gold since 2014, when I determined this team was too damned good not to have a damned fine writer providing the takes. It was a pretty good year to make such a decision. In addition to all of that, I occasionally write about football, basketball, and Superb Owls. I am responsible for nearly all of the perfectly cromulent inside jokes on this blog.

Because they were taking prescription Adderall and we were shredding cases of Zyn per inning

That said, he hasn't hit a donger in 10 days, and that is legitimately tied for his longest homerless stretch of the year. Perhaps he's in a mid-season power-slump? If so, one can only hope it extends for three more days.



Like 8mins into the game...

This can't be a real post lol. Somewhere on a Yale message board is a guy hating on Vandy for pretending to be Yale of the south

This should be their "elite" team issue. They did have pinstripe ones back in the day.

Well, the game did only take 2 hours.

Our thread about their game thread might end up with more posts.

You'd think such brilliant people would use forum software from the current century.

That SB nation article is wild. I've never given Vandy anywhere near that level of thought or emotion. Good or bad.

Also bizarre that people were using the comment section like a pseudo game thread.

Being n the top 10% in Tennessee is not really noteworthy… TN and LA both have a tremendous idiot/normal person ratio.

The copium maxxing is great "at least we stopped Prager from a no-no!"

You were down by 9 runs at that point, Prager struck out every batter he saw, and after hitting numerous pop-ups and grounders, eventually one squeaked passed our infield.

Prager isn't losing sleep about the no-no.

It's a SB Nation website. Personally I dislike the SB Nation setup.. They really do not have a fully developed forum format that I could ever find. Guess they are doing what they can with the limitations of it.

And this happened solely because one of our own dared to point out the fact that he had yet to give up a hit.

Gotta love how a private school tries to call us elitist. Other than the whistler, I've never had anything against Vandy (though the whistler is a pretty big negative). After reading that write-up, bring the hate.

Right. This surprised me. We've literally have had zero history with Vandy to warrant such disgust and hate. Have had zero reason to dislike their fan base. But they apparently have all lived or have relatives in Austin. I guess now I got to hate them too.

I'm pretty sure this is the writer's attempt at humor.
People think I'm an idiot or something, because all I do is cut lawns for a living.
